Tuesday, October 25, 2022: October Vignette - "Hunter’s Moon" by Linda Mooney
Worlds of Fire: Metamorphosis a Romantic Fantasy novella by Deborah A. Bailey
Asira is a member of a high-ranking family of Alchemists who exert control over the libraries that store magical texts. She never believed her acceptance into the coveted position was in doubt.
Yet, when she becomes the apprentice of a gargoyle shifter Alchemist who insists on keeping his pet bird with him, she has her doubts that he was the right choice for her final class.
Jaydon is from a shifter group known as the Gigun. As an unconventional but powerful teacher of transmutation at the university, he could have his pick of mentees. It isn't hard to tell that the last thing he wants to do is mentor a student from a powerful family.
Asira finds Jaydon frustrating but too fascinating for her own good. But she needs his knowledge and guidance when she becomes the target of a classmate’s deception. With Jaydon’s assistance, the two of them uncover a conspiracy that threatens the well-regulated order of the Floating World.
As their feelings for each other intensify, Jaydon must make a life-altering decision which will either bind them together… or permanently force them apart.
$3.99 - Available on Amazon, B&N, Apple, Kobo and other booksellers.
Worlds of Fire Series:
I'm taking part in a Fantasy, Sci-Fi and Paranormal Romance Book Fair this month:
It's Halloween Season. What better way to spend it than reading a Paranormal, Fantasy, Sci-fi or Spooky Romance?
My story, Going Back to Find You is one of the books featured in this event. Here's the blurb and a brief excerpt. Also, btw, one of the books I'm working on at the moment is a sequel to this book, so I'm feeling very into Jason right now...
Because even a vampire deserves a second chance.
When Jason Cook boarded the train to San Francisco, he didn't plan on coming back. He never really thought he'd see Nebraska or Lizbeth Petersen ever again.
But when an unexpected turn of events threatens the woman he'd been forced to leave behind, he has no choice but to go back and try to make things right.
Warning: This is not a drill. Vampires are invading your favorite, small Nebraska town this Halloween.
Does this mean Type-O flavored Booze will soon be the new rage in Sapphire Falls? Hopefully, it won't come to that. But you never can tell...
Excerpt:San Francisco, California
LIGHT UP THE NIGHT
Her love could light up his night...if they can both survive that long.
Heather is having the worst Christmas ever! Or, at least, the worst Christmas since she was forced to become a vampire. Her sire's distracted, her nestmates have forgotten her, weirdos have taken over the lair. The only bright spot in her life right now is Drew--who didn't even used to like her! She knows he's coming around, but that's not good enough. She wants more. She wants everything. She wants him. And she's not giving up.
Drew Geiger gave up on love a long time ago. Such tender emotions have no place in a vampire's heart. But, somehow, the girl he once described as a "feral kitten" has got her claws in him, and she's not letting go. That would be fine, if only someone didn't want her dead--and if her sire didn't recall that it was Drew who once suggested that maybe she'd be better off that way.
Tentatively scheduled for a December 2022 Release
This story takes place at the same time as Light Up the Night, but the focus is on Jason and Liz (Going Back to Find You) rather than Drew and Heather.
Scheduled to release on April 1, 2023 as part of the FREE antho, Shifter Fever
DANCING IN THE DARK
Sometimes living forever is not all it's cracked up to be.
1956 Winnipeg, Canada. Once Armand Renaud realizes that eternal youth is a real possibility, nothing will deter him from achieving his goal. And after one hundred years of solitude, Conrad can’t bring himself to resist the handsome young dancer who’s hellbent on being turned.
They both know they’re not destined to be the great loves of each other’s lives, but there are worse ways to pass a long and lonely decade or two than in the arms of a passionate stranger.
Living forever might not be everything they’d hoped for. But, at least they can still get a few things right. Can't they?
Scheduled for release November, 2023 as part of the Vampire Rejected Mates anthology.
