A Baby is Born…Baby Book that is~!

So, on with the continuation of my story from last night.

I trip over this box on my front porch. Dragging in late from a perfect day of biking, massage and grocery shopping.  My baby had arrived. Since a picture is worth a thousand words. Go for it!

Production Schedule for 2014 – 2015

I’ve been buried under edits this month. I’m excited to release this production schedule for 2014 and 2015. I will release more than this I’m sure. However, this is what I have nailed down to deadlines as we speak.

These blurbs are in draft form at the moment. I’d love to hear comments about what you like in the blurb. Also what in the blurb might stop you from thinking you would like one of these stories. I will choose a random comment that I like to send a swag pack to with a lovely Facebook card on one of my titles and a cover trading card.

To Be Released in 2014

From Rebel Ink Press: “Shifter’s Legacy” a M/F/M Menage Erotic Paranormal Wolf Shifter Novella TBR 05/03/2014 Vol 4 in The Amethyst Desire Collection. Look for a Cover Preview in April. This cover is in it’s final edits. The story is with the editor and I am looking forward to a revision letter from them to put things in their final format.

Draft Blurb

Addison Barnes has loved Nathan since the moment she looked into the deep brown eyes of the injured grey wolf brought to her rescue facility and saw a human soul. Yet, the complications of the birth of their first child, demands of mothering and keeping her wolf rescue running leaves Addison feeling less like a sexy mate and more like a saggy mom. She’s frightened of the pervading consequences of their son Logan manifesting shape shifting abilities. She longs to regain her confidence and sexual vitality and carefree demeanor. She hires drifter Duncan Black to help with some of the more physical chores at the rescue Nathan doesn’t have time to accomplish. Duncan proves to be an attractive distraction.

Duncan’s life changed forever when he’s stranded in the quaint (er…hole in the wall) north Florida town for a part for his motorcycle. The chance meeting with Addison gives him the opportunity to earn a little cash and regroup before heading on to his next destination, somewhere else. Addison and her curvy little ass are a significant distraction to his fence building chores. With his own secret to hide, he’s not prepared to be swept into a whole different world. Covertly witnessing what seems to be a wolf turning into his boss, Duncan realizes the couple might hold the key to his own mystery.

Nathan Barnes struggles to unite his pack. Key to their future is whether his human wife can help him secure the next generation of shape shifting wolves through their offspring. Or will the shifter genetics be diluted by human ones? Duncan’s presence gives a much needed buffer from all the stress. Nathan purchases an amethyst pendant from Salynne’s Crystals and Thyme as a gift of love for his beautiful wife. Sparks ignite as Nathan demonstrates to Addison the lengths he will go to for her happiness. Uncharacteristic of his Alpha possessiveness, he wants to fulfill Addison’s fantasy of a ménage with Duncan.

After weeks of handy man chores by day and lusting after Addison by night, Duncan doesn’t want to resist the offer of a weekend threesome. Planning to leave after their weekend of carnal debauchery anyway what could it matter?

“Emma’s New Year” a F/F Erotic Contemporary Romance Novellette TBR 07/03/2014 Vol 5 in The Amethyst Desire Collection. Cover Reveal coming in June. This cover is also in final edits with the graphic artist over at Rebel Ink Press. I will be looking for a special place to do the cover reveal.

Draft Blurb

Convinced to ring in the New Year at a gay club with a lesbian friend, straight girl Emma Reed gets a little more than she expects when she meets El Westin. Maybe there was something magical about that Amethyst necklace she’d borrowed for the night. Or perhaps her resistance was lowered by the fruity concoction, Hawaiian Iced Tea, she’d been drinking. Her immediate attraction to El sent up fireworks and it wasn’t even midnight. Would one night of wild sex be the start of a New Year, New life for them both or end up being just another big mistake.

5 More releases for “The Amethyst Desire Collection” over the course of 2014 and 2015 to complete the collection. What kinds of stories would you find fun to round out this series. I have sketched out blurbs for four of the five. They would be seasonal holiday stories: Halloween F/F; Thanksgiving M/M; Christmas Menage F/F/M; Valentines Menage M/F/M with some M/M/F scenes;  Perhaps a summer time story? OHHH maybe something at the beach for the very last story. And have the necklace get lost forever in the sea. After ten stories…maybe it needs to be LOST FOREVER in the sea. Awww darn that wouldn’t work. I’d just write a mermaid story then about finding the dang thing. LOL

Draft Blurb

Bad-boy twins, Ethan and Caleb Monroe are exiled by Drakin society because of their defective Dragon form, two heads are unacceptable. They’ve gotten used to breaking rules to help their world. Their sensory powers draw them to Cathwren Aldridge, the one woman they could both love, just in time to save her from harm. Much to their surprise, she’s the lost descendent of Wyrmarach’s Dragon Guardian and rightful heir to the title. They have to break the oldest custom of all, risking everything on the chance to awaken ‘Wren’s’ powers and rekindle the magic of the Drakin’s world.

Wren came to the small North Florida town to enjoy a quiet life running her shop, Salynne’s Crystals and Thyme. Now Wren’s on the run from ancient enemies who want to kill her and the ‘Watchers’ who think she should be secluded in a Temple communing with the Goddess. The whole thing sounds like a bizarre SyFy movie. Yet something is happening, unleashing feelings she can’t deny, feelings that urge her to push the boundaries of pleasure, feelings that whisper she’s something more than ordinary. Her conscience wages war with emotions urging her to climb in bed with these two very sexy dragon shifters and stay there.

The trio embarks on a hunt to uncover and eliminate the threat against Wren’s birthright. Will their people accept such a deformed dragon as Kings.   Can such a closed society accept a human as Guardian and Queen?  Together they struggle to claim their shared destiny as Dragon Guardian of WyrmArach and Monarchs of the Realm.

Draft Blurb

Wren, Cathwren Aldridge, is catapulted into steamy relationship with twin brothers Ethan and Caleb Monroe quite by accident when she falls through her stairs.

Evil stalks her, and it’s up to Caleb and Ethan Monroe to protect her while they figure out just what she is, Human, Dragon or something much more. Is she the one they’ve hoped for to unite them in their journey to the throne? Or will the strangeness of the truths they tell her drive her onto a path of self discovery leaving them bound to a woman they can never have, The Dragon Guardian.

Toby-by-Design will be creating a cover for one more direct publication project. I’m debating on what to write for this story. Something that ties into world I’ve created with the Dragons, or a totally different project.  Oh the endless possibilities.

What a Joyous, Appreciate A Dragon Day

I appreciate dragons. I really do. I would venture to say I LOVE dragons. I have a wall shelf of dragon statues, dragon art. I’ve been called a dragon by x’es who shall remain nameless. Like an award show, the list is much too long. I will admit to some dragonic traits.

2014-01-16 11.27.20

Which calls to thought the concept that even the villain is the hero of his own story. Dragon Guardian isn’t without a heinous villain. This bad guy first made his appearance in “Dar’kind Promises” when he abducted Maura. That segment in time overlaps the action in “Dragon Guardian” (TBR May, 2014)

What do you think of this baddie?

Draft Excerpt.

Damn, for something so soft and thin, this hide was resilient. By appearance, the skin should part like hot butter. The harsh hacking sound of the skin ripping echoed through the cavernous room. The hide fought the knife like reinforced Kevlar. Maybe  the blade was too dull. He had to remove a large enough piece to discover the hidden secrets. The smaller pieces so far hadn’t revealed their magic.

Working always helped him think to sharpen the analytical edge of his scientific mind. He concentrated on his task as the icor and blood coated his gloved hands, pouring from the shallow slicing wounds to channel down the sides of the great beast and puddle on the floor. The monstrous creature’s body remained stretched and pinned by low frequency sound-waves interlaced with a heavy base throb. The right frequency pitch incapacitated the brute, a quite effective restraint with the help of pig iron chain, when experiments required direct hands-on contact. The wretched creature moaned between screams of rage and pain while he worked at peeling a bath sheet-sized swath of skin from the large dragon’s body.

There Be Dragons Here – Appreciate A Dragon Day Celebration

Dragons are opinionated, bossy and uncooperative. As a rule they tend toward the crafty and manipulative spectrum of personality traits. They are never wrong and seldom ask for directions.

Ethan and Caleb have no idea what they are in for when they meet Cathwren. She is quite unexpected and puts their well ordered, albeit if unsatisfactory, life in a blender.

2014-01-16 11.27.00

Excerpt draft:

Caleb stood at the door and jiggled the handle he already knew was locked. The shock of the morning’s events had taken their toll. His thoughts were Swiss cheese “It’s locked.”

Ethan’s mental tone didn’t communicate any of his outward calm. Genius, of course it’s still locked. The keys probably went flying when she fell.

Caleb turned to take her from Ethan arms and free him to jimmy the lock. Ethan, you’ll have to break in.

“Don’t you dare break my doors.” They both froze at her command. Of course, she could still hear their mental dialogue. The emotional claiming was so fresh, that psychic pathway remained wide open between them. She might not even realize she was privy to their thoughts and heard it as if spoken aloud.

I searched months for those doors, carted them all the way back from Orlando, refinished them myself. Might as well rip my heart out and stomp it into the pavement. How dare you consider breaking my doors down… you big…big oafs?

Caleb flooded by  her memory of the countless hours she’d spent searching for the double doors that would provide the entrance to her world, Salynne’s. Additional untold hours spent stripping and refinishing the doors to their former beauty. Her joy in the treasure was immeasurable.

“I have the key.” She opened her right hand, revealing the keys and various deep cuts they’d made across her palm from gripping them during the fall.

Ethan narrowed his gaze staring at the places where the keys sliced into her skin gouging through the flesh of her hand. Caleb concentrated on tempering his brother’s energy as he vibrated with helpless anger.

Ethan’s eyes bored into his, sparks of fury igniting their brown depths. He growled. “I promise you, Caleb, if it’s within my power, the person who hurt our mate is going to suffer.”

Dragons, Dragons, Dragons. It’s National Appreciate A Dragon Day

Because humans are crunchy and good to eat.

Ever wonder about those pesky dragons of the middle ages? Where did they come from?

Well of course they were shape shifters from the other side of the veil. Yes, intelligent dragons shifters from Wyrmarach over here on holiday so to speak. It didn’t end well.

There are still dragons among us. They’re doing a better job of remaining an invisible subculture. It wouldn’t do to have a dragon the size of a bus pop out in the air over Chicago now would it?

Ethan and Caleb are Enforcers sent here to make sure their kind stay hidden from humans.

vol 1 Dragon Guardian (TBR May 3, 2014)

Draft exerpt:

Caleb Monroe shook the antique doors of Salynne’s Crystals & Thyme, a new age curiosities and notions shop. The business hours proclaimed in bold black letters that the store should have opened half an hour ago. The sign made a metallic ping against the windowed double frame as Caleb rattled the knob again. The sharp sound echoed a counterpoint to the psychic vibration, which annoyed him since dawn. The heavy walnut door wobbled but didn’t budge.

Caleb turned to his brother. “Ethan, any special reason we’re at a new age trinket shop.”

“Would you go for early Christmas shopping.” Ethan exuded a capable calm air Caleb sometimes found reassuring, but today it pressed all his ir-ri-tate-the-crap-outa-me buttons. He’d been growling at his identical twin since daybreak.

Caleb turned on his heel and snorted. “Riigghtt.” He stalked the real estate in front of the store, brushing past planters of green growing things. The clean aroma of herbs floated up from the container gardens failed to ease his rising agitation. He paused to scan the street. An uneasy tingle of premonition radiated up the short hairs of his neck. Something wasn’t right. Something really bad was close to happening, something cataclysmic bad, something in the realm of the mother-of-all-bad.
