NSFW

It goes without saying, I would guess, that this website is not safe for work and should only be viewed by adults.

I’ve put a lot of effort into making sure that there are no explicit images on the front page of this blog unless they are beneath a cut, but as soon as you follow any links from here you are nearly guaranteed to find sexually explicit content.

What’s more, even on this page there are likely to be images (non-explicit but inappropriate for work), naughty text and sex stories. That is, after all, what you came here for, right? 🙂

Cover Reveal: Transformed

When I first conceived of the Triskaidekaphilia anthology series I knew I wasn’t going to be able to edit all thirteen volumes — there just aren’t enough hours in the day — and giving that up was kind of difficult because I sort of, maybe, might have control issues. But one of the awesome things that came with my getting over that speed bump and hiring different editors for each volume (so far) is that it creates a diversity of theme, mood, style and subject matter that never could have happened if I’d tried to edit them all.

Laura tackled a tricky subject matter in Legendary and found strong stories with a great mix of gay and straight pairings. In Ravenous, Ariel brought the heat out hard, but coupled that with stories that explored all sorts of different kinds of vampires, and what it means to be vampiric. Trysh took an angle for Haunted that I never would have thought of and I’m looking forward to seeing what she pulls together when submissions open this fall.

And, of course, there is Transformed.

When I first talked to Charlie about the anthology, I’ll admit I was thinking of the usual kind of mammal shapeshifters — you know, wolves, big cats, bears, that sort of thing — but Charlie was thinking way outside of that box. Don’t get me wrong, I love that box, but I also love that in Transformed Charlie has put together a collection that includes shifters from the mammalian world, but also birds, and reptiles and the fantastic.

And now it has a cover

Designed by Amanda C. Davis, I think this cover is awesome. Check it out:

Nothing is quite so deliciously freeing as caving to your instincts. For centuries, shapeshifters have personified our impulse to bow to our animalistic nature. From lycans to skin-walkers and everything in between, shapeshifters give us a chance to connect with our inner-selves and celebrate our intriguing differences, our passions, and ultimately our humanity through their necessity of striking a balance between their human selves and supernatural selves.

Transformed will be available July 13th, 2018 but if you reserve your copy now you’ll save because the price is going up on release day!

Enchanted: Magic Flame

The final installment of this magical series is out today! It’s been a heck of a ride to get here, and I’m extremely proud that we have. Working with Sara, Em, Wendy and Elesha to create this series and get it out into the hands of readers has been a unique and complicated journey, but we did it. Because we’re awesome.

So is the book. Check it out:

Available Now!

The third and final installment of the Enchanted series — a trio of trilogies by three amazing romance writers. These stories all have two things in common: magic and romance!

“All’s Fair in Love, War and Demigods” by Wendy Sparrow:
Allie Mason isn’t what Donovan Rowe was expecting from a demigoddess of love. Touchy-feely she is not. But just because she is able to drop him to the mat but doesn’t mean he’s right for her–she needs someone less battle-scarred and jaded. However, Allie has other ideas. While a matching site may have set them up, Allie is sure demigod of war Donovan is who she wants. He’s not getting away without a fight and all’s fair in love, war, and claiming your demigod.

“These Resting Bones” by Em Shotwell:
New Orleans college student Bradley Murphey works hard to blend into the background, which is easier said than done when you are descended from a cursed line of witches. After helping her sisters cast spells (with questionable results) Bradley would be happy to never work magic again, but when she accidentally kills a man she has no choice but to turn to her hottie best friend and her family’s cursed magic for help. But every spell has a price, and sometimes it is best to let dead things rot…

“Destiny’s Dark Light Part III” by Sara Dobie Bauer:
The love story of Cyan and Liam comes to its enchanted end. With the identity of the dreaded dark witch revealed, both Cyan and Liam must find ways to deal with the ramifications. War approaches at an ever-increasing pace. Dark witches and white will soon battle on the streets of Charleston. Still, Cyan remains focused on the man she’s come to love. She is destined to protect Liam, but how can she keep him safe and save the world when her powers are barely under control?

Prairie Magic

This wasn’t supposed to be a series. It was supposed to be a single novella for an anthology… but then I fell in love with the characters and the setting and the potential and BOOM it exploded into so much more than one story.

The problem with having a series instead of a novella is that series need titles. And I’m not awesome at titles.

After consulting with (AKA: complaining a lot on) Twitter and Facebook I decided to call this series Prairie Magic.

Prairie Magic

The other thing that a series needs is covers that clearly show not only that the books beneath them belong to the same series, but also nail the genre.

Since the most concise way to describe the genre for these series is ‘historical paranormal erotica’, and that historical setting is ‘very rural Southern Alberta during WWI’ it’s not exactly an easy genre to nail with a cover (especially within my budget), but I think QDesigns did.

Check out the covers for the first two titles in this series. The first story, Circles Within Circles, had a cover already from when I released it last year, but I wanted to give it something fresh which matched the new cover for The Longest Night:

Circles Within Circles

Mary never believed the rumors about her mother being a witch, but when a mirror inexplicably connects her to her twin brother Michael, stationed half a world away on a WWI battlefield, she reconsiders. To protect him from a battle he has reason to believe will be his last, Mary sets out to uncover any magic left on her isolated farm.

The incubus Cairn wakes from centuries of banishment to a cramped basement and a sensual, albeit surprised, woman. Perhaps she didn’t intend to summon him, but since she did, perhaps he could help… for a price.

The Longest Night

Mary wants her first Christmas with Cairn to be special, so in between practicing her magic, taking care of the farm and taking Cairn into her bed whenever possible, she’s making him a gift.

Cairn knows exactly what he wants to give Mary for Christmas, but providing it will require a huge personal sacrifice. He likes to make Mary smile but is that reward enough to make it worth the price he’ll have to pay?

I am really excited about these covers and these stories. In fact, it’s becoming a real struggle to focus on the other stories I’m supposed to be working on because I just want to keep writing Mary and Cairn LoL So there is most definitely going to be more on the way.

In the meantime, what do you think? Like the covers? Excited for “The Longest Night”?

Brand New Covers!

When I hired a designer to do a cover for Circles Within Circles he gave me exactly what I asked for… unfortunately, as it turns out, I asked for the wrong things. In my defense, ‘erotic paranormal romance set in rural Canada during WWI’ is kind of a tricky niche to nail on a cover.

Anyway…

Circles Within Circles is getting a brand new cover today and so is the next story in the Mary and Cairn series, The Longest Night.

I am so excited!

Here is a wee bit of a sneak peek:

Wha-whaat?

I know, right?

Amy from QDesign is doing the designs and they are going to be magical.

My plan is reveal them, re-release Circles Within Circles and make The Longest Night available for pre-order next week. Chances are really, really good, though, that I’ll be sharing them on my mailing list before then because I’m just not going to be able to resist.

There is a downside to all this and that is now I want to write all the Mary and Cairn stories. All of them!

But there are a limited number of hours in the day and I have lots of projects on the go.

Which is why I’m going to add a project tracker to this website. Not only so people can see what I’m working on but also so it’ll keep me accountable and maybe a little bit focused so I can get more done and write all the stories.

Finally, on a related only in that it’s about books and books have covers kind of way, I included Moonlight and Magic in this huge giveaway and Love Bytes in this one. Check ’em out. They are all free and you might find something you like 🙂

P.S. Oh yeah, and after being the most indecisive person in Indecisionville I’ve finally decided on a title for the series. I’m going with ‘Prairie Magic’. Whatcha think? Love it? Hate it? Can live with it? Good. :-p

Love Bytes

Phew!

It’s been a week, yo.

This was the week I ‘took over’ the Facebook page for Pen and Kink Publishing and I planned for it to be awesome. I was going to create an ebook from start to finish — write it, format it, upload it, blah blah blah. It was going to be epic.

Except that I got rather epicly blocked.

That’s not the right word, actually.

What happened is that I decided I didn’t have time to write something from scratch so I figured I’d finish something I’d already started — “The Switch”. I gave the story a quick read through so I’d remember the details and know where I was picking it up from… and promptly got very discouraged. The story was broken. I could see it was broken, and by Tuesday I even had a pretty good idea on how it was broken and how to fix it… but I didn’t have time to fix it and finish it by the end of the week.

I was screwed.

Then I remembered “Love Bytes”.

This is a story I wrote ages ago and though it’s a little dated I still think it’s cute. And best of all, for the purpose of this takeover, it was finished. No writing required. And no editing either because I wrote this story so long ago.

(I’ve found that I can’t effectively edit my own work that is more than a couple years old because I am no longer that writer. More often than not what happens is I rip apart the poor story and turn it into something different. And that’s just no fun. So, no substantial edit on this story… which saves time. Yay!)

And so, after a rather bumpy week I am pleased to share “Love Bytes” with you:

Steffie makes a date with someone on an internet dating site and he shows up at her bedroom window rather than her door. That is her first clue the evening is going to be… interesting but even she could never guess the strange turn it will take at the end.

This is an erotic story containing mild D/s, foot play and explicit oral sex.

You can download a free copy of this story right here. There’s no catch, no bullshit… but the offer does expire on March 17th so don’t wait too long 🙂
