Tomorrow is the big release day for “Emma’s New Year”

A reader, Sarah B had a chance to read an advanced readers copy of “Emma’s New Year”. Sarah B came out in 2013 so the experience is fresh in her mind and she could relate to the changes and emotions Emma was experiencing. She said

“Loved Emma’s innocence throughout and El’s vulnerability at the end.
Emma took back a bit of control at the end. Sure would love to read more about these two characters!!!
Emma needed this night with El to know she’s gay.
Believable characters and plot. Definitely would
read more like this.
Sex scenes were well done and sensual yet tasteful.
I loved the dancing between them at the party…so passionate and  Emma was swept off her feet.

I will definitely put a review on amazon.

Would enjoy very much reading more of your work”

(An Advanced Readers Copy of “Emma’s New Year” was given to Sarah in exchange for a fair and honest review.)

That’s wonderful, Sarah B. I’ll look forward to your official review.

Thank you, Eden Glenn

Reviewer

I met Ameliah Faith through a contact I made with a lesbian reading group on Facebook.  She is a reader from MN who enjoys a steamy lesbian romance. Ameliah says of herself, “I crave the written word like other people crave chocolate.”

Not a professional reviewer but an avid reader. Just who I was looking for. I sent her an early ARC of “Emma’s New Year” for a fair and honest review.

Here’s what she had to say after reading.

“This book is a very sweet and tender love story with just a dash of steamy sex to enhance the encounter. I enjoyed watching the story from Emma’s perspective as she took the step into the world of Lesbian love. She is likable and endearing. I think we all understand what she goes through. Thank you for taking me on her trip Ms. Glenn. I will be reading more from you.”

Blurb 1:

Blurb 2:

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 them both or end up being just another big mistake.

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.

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

Drakins of Wyrmarach

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.

“Dragon Guardian” a M/F/M Menage Erotic Paranormal Dragon Shifter Novel. Vol 1 Drakins of Wyrmarach TBR 05/03/2014 Cover Reveal coming in April. I have the cover on this baby and it is (singing) Awe-SOME. A fantastic cover created by Hot Damn Designs. I’ve made it into a poster so I can look at it every day. The same poster will be on display at the two author events I’ve scheduled in the Western North Carolina Area. May 3rd Blue Ridge Books on Main Street Waynesville, NC at 3pm and at City Lights Book Store in Sylvia, NC on Friday, May 16th, 2014 at 6:30pm. There will be swag and wonderful drawings for attendees. I will offer a bottle of Menage De Trois wine autographed label as a door prize drawing to one lucky purchaser of “Dragon Guardian” at each event. At City Lights we will be enjoying wine and chocolate while I read an excerpt, sign books and visit with guests. Planning the activities for the Blue Ridge Books event are underway.

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. She discovers nothing is what is seems and she may be Goddess forordained for more. Not Queen of some small European country but a world in another dimension, a world of dragon shapeshifters.

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.

Dirk is the hero of his own story of course. And a Betrayer is revealed to the reader.

“Raynia’s Magic” on Sale Through Valentines Day

In honor of it’s publication anniversary, I am able to offer “Raynia’s Magic” vol 1 of The Amethyst Desire Collection” on sale for $.99. at Amazon

Blurb:

Raynia Castellano is drawn to purchase an amethyst pendant as an impulse buy but not before the clerk assures Raynia the magic is in the woman, not the necklace that seems to call to her. And given Raynia has just left an adulterous ex-husband and has recently settled into a law practice with her oh so sexy and oh so apparently gay law partners, surely a little magic is required.

200x300RayniasMagic

Excerpt:

Peter watched Raynia move past Sally’s desk. Just the view of her Marilyn Monroe curves awakened his cock and started an inevitable hard-on. As she turned for her office, the view of her heart shaped ass finished stiffening his erection to a painful thickness trapped in his briefs. This had to end soon.

 

The side door of his and Chase’s connecting offices opened and his partner watched him with a grin and similar evidence in the form of a tented crotch in his trousers.

 

Peter tossed instructions over his shoulder as he crossed the room. “Sally, hold our calls for a while.”

 

“Yes, Mr. Thornton.” He closed the office door and turned to Chase.

 

“I can’t suffer like this much longer.” He pulled out the chair and sat down, adjusting his pants and cock to a less uncomfortable position.

 

Chase leaned in the opening of the door. “You’re the one who had the bright idea to let her think we’re gay.”

 

“You know she was a wreck after her husband left her. She needed a place to stay where she felt safe. I didn’t exactly know how to broach the conversation of Chase and I are bi-sexual and have wanted to jump your bones since we were freshmen together. Chalk it up to, our timing sucks.”

 

Chase pushed away from the doorframe and crossed the room to lean over Peter’s chair. He punctuated his words with forefinger jabs to Peter’s chest. “Yes, well our little butterfly is emerging and if we don’t do something soon another bee is going to be dipping into that honey.”

 

Peter slapped Chase’s hand away. “Didn’t anyone ever brief you on the concept of metaphors and explain–what you do with them should be grounds for incarceration.”
