My erotic urban fantasy vampire paranormal, Awakening the blood, has been offered a contract with Amira Press!!

I'm very pleased. This will be my first published paranormal story and my fourth publisher.

I'm still on vacation and stealing a moment on my sister in law's computer but I had to share.

Through the Woodwork, my erotic novella featuring a glory hole came out just last Tuesday and I just heard my story Road trip included in the Spank Me Twice anthology might be released soon as well. It's been a great month! I love May!

Edits for Awakening the Blood are just about done but I see we are listed on the coming soon page. Yippee!! It makes it so real. You have to scroll down, but all four of us are there, including my good friend Sarah. This is her first published work! Hers is called Claiming Love.

READ EXCERPT (http://www.amirapress.com/shop/index.php?main_page=page&id=69&chapter=0)

Reeling from her recent break up, Meara ditches a Halloween party held in a cemetery at the edge of town, and seeks out the one reliable man in her life - who just happens to be a statue with large bat wings. The winged man had always intrigued her, but that just seems to go along with her other idiosyncrasies – her ability to read emotions and dream the future.

Even after years imprisoned in marble, D'iamonte can feel and see everything that goes on around him. Most of the time, his encounters have been unpleasant, but when his beautiful young mortal comes calling, late one Halloween, he is surprised and pleased that she feels bold enough to crawl in to his lap and have her way with him.

Neither of them expects him to wake up.

I'm working on a Youtube book trailer for this book and hopefully soon after I'll start the second book in this series. Once the first story was completed I realised there was so much more that needed to happen between Meara, her quest to uncover her past, and D'iamonte's new struggles after his life altering battle with the Vampire mistress.

I have a few novella's on my plate that I'd like to finish first, then a few anthology submissions which are on a deadline, but Awakening the Blood's next book is already peculating in my brain!

Book Blurb:

Treila is the second born twin and heir to the Telen throne after her sister’s untimely death. Her sister, whose magic was of the light, of faith, love and hope, was the one intended to rule Telen, not Treila, whose magic is so obviously of the darkness. Faced with having to wed the Nor King in order to save her city from destruction, she leaves Telen, hoping to discover what became of her sister. She ventures to the cliffs of Plemae where the angels dwell, for it was a dark angel who stole her sister away, but before she can get any answers, she is captured and brought before the demon king in the sky palace. There she is thrown into an unwieldy alliance with the very dark angel who kidnapped her sister—Kolar, now an outcast traitor for standing against his master. Together, she and her enemy must escape the demons and return to Telen before the full moon and the Nor King’s attack.

As much as she wants to hate Kolar, Treila can’t deny her heated attraction to the dark winged angel despite who he is and what he has done to change her life.

Book Blurb:

When Autumn finds a sexy, winged statue among her deceased uncle’s belongings, she thinks he’ll make a great decoration for her bedroom, as well as her solitary life. What she doesn’t expect is to wake up in the middle of the night and find her statue replaced by a living, breathing, gorgeous man made up of the four elements.

Gabriel’s been a statue for 500 years. He’s lost, confused, and wreaking havoc on the human realm. In an effort to get Gabriel home, Autumn experiences adventure she’d never even dreamed about. But will they be able to survive the greatest adventure of all - falling in love?

Blurb:

As an archaeologist, Elle loves her job. She just doesn't love all the airplanes she has to take. Before her latest flight, she says a quick prayer and as an afterthought throws in a request to meet her Mr. Perfect. The Goddess, Gaia, assigns Bodin. He is a human angel-in-training who just happens to not believe in love.

Grumpy and usually a divine pain, Bodin has met his match with the beautiful archaeologist. The two explore their budding attraction working in the wild northern forests, but will love come too late or just in time for forever?
