The Best of 2014

Rebel Ink Press has awarded me the honor of “Best of 2014”. I am so very honored and excited to be chosen for this award.

Best of RIP 2014

My relationship started with Rebel Ink Press in 2011 when they took a chance of me for an anthology submission that later published as a stand alone.

My Publication history with them has been as follows:

2011 The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp in their editor pick anthology “Once Upon A Twisted Tale”.

2012 “The Galloping Ghoul of Hockomock Swamp” stand alone release and “Raynia’s Magic”
2013 “Beverly’s Secret“, “Phoenix Reborn“, “Dar’kind Promises” and “Dragon’s Unbound” (removed by Author in 2014 for re-writes and re-release as “Dragon Emergence” direct publication in 2015)
2014″Shifter’s Legacy” and “Emma’s New Year

 

The Series “The Amethyst Desire Collection” took shape with Vol 1 “Raynia’s Magic”,  Vol 2 “Beverly’s Secret,  Vol 3 “Phoenix Reborn”, Vol 4 “Shifter’s Legacy” and Vol 5 “Emma’s New Year”.

In particular “Beverly’s Secret” has continued to remain at the top of it’s genre classification at Amazon since it’s release in 2013, remaining in the top fifteen most of that time. All of these titles are Novellas and Novellettes. I am so pleased that RIP has continued to accept proposals and titles from me.  I love the staff at Rebel Ink Press and highly recommend them if you are looking for a publisher. I’m scoping our projects to submit to them in 2015 and look forward to our continued success.

And which are my two of my favorite covers created by Carl Franklin while he was working as a graphic artist at Rebel Ink Press? “The Galloping Ghoul” of course….and…..

Author Spotlight – Jennifer Wilck – Miriam’s Surrender

My Guest today is fellow Rebel Ink Press Author, Jennifer Wilck. She’s not your traditional aspiring author. She’s a multi-published talent to be reckoned with appealing to an under served market of readers.  Her stories are so well crafted and such enjoyable reads there is something for everyone.

Jennifer started telling herself stories as a little girl when she couldn’t fall asleep at night. As an adult, she started writing them down and after several years of writing, editing and querying publishers, she’s a multi-published author. Her favorite stories to write are those with smart, sassy, independent heroines; handsome, strong and slightly vulnerable heroes; and always end with happily ever after.

When she’s not writing, she loves spending time with her family and friends, reading, traveling and watching TV. She volunteers with her Temple and is also a freelance writer for magazines, newspapers and newsletters.

 

headshotI’d like to thank my fellow Rebel, Eden Glenn, for hosting me today.

Miriam’s Surrender is the second book in my series, Women of Valor. What makes this series unique is that while the books are contemporary romance, they all incorporate Jewish themes and holidays into their stories.

The first book, The Seduction of Esther, revolved around the holiday of Purim, which is a joyous holiday that takes place in the early spring. It celebrates the saving of the Jews of Persia and we dress up, eat and drink.

Miriam’s Surrender revolves around the holiday of Passover. Passover is another spring holiday, which usually takes place around Easter and celebrates the escape of the Hebrews from the Pharaoh in Egypt.

One of the major themes of Purim is hiding one’s identity. The heroine in the Purim story, Esther, pretends she’s not Jewish in order to catch the attention of the King, marry him, trap the villainous Haman and ultimately save the Jews. Talk about a great story! And hiding one’s identity provides a great conflict for a romance novel.

Passover’s major theme is freedom. The Hebrews escaped from slavery by crossing the Reed Sea with Moses. Freedom is another great theme for romance novels. While none of my characters have escaped slavery, my hero, Josh, has escape his past in order to move into the future and win Miriam’s love.

While not all of my books incorporate Jewish themes, I began writing this series to fill a need that I saw in romance. Most books are inherently Christian. The hero and heroine get married in a church. The holiday they celebrate together where they meet each other’s families is Christmas. Before the Thanksgiving meal, everyone says grace.

I love reading these books and the warmth conveyed spills over to me. I have no problem with books that incorporate religions other than my own. But I do think that diversity is important, and occasionally, I think it would be nice to see examples of other religions. That’s why I wrote this series.

I hope you enjoy it!

Josh Lowenstein is a successful architect, hired to redesign the alumni club of a posh, private school in New York. He is strong, capable and knows the best way to do everything. Except let another woman in.

 Miriam Goldberg is the Assistant Director of Outreach, and is Josh’s day-to-day contact for the redesign. She’s taken care of everyone around her, and forgotten how to let someone else take care of her.

 With a tumultuous history, neither one is prepared to work together. As they get to know each other, the animosity disappears, but Josh is hiding something from Miriam and its discovery has the possibility of destroying their relationship. Only when they are both able to let the other in, and release some of the control they exert over everything, will they be able to see if their love can survive.

A Heart of Little Faith and Skin Deep were published by Whiskey Creek Press in 2011. The Seduction of Esther, the first in the Women of Valor series, was published in June 2013 by Rebel Ink Press. The next book in that series, Miriam’s Surrender, will be published September 10, 2014. All books can be purchased through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

She can be reached at www.jenniferwilck.com or http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jennifer-Wilck/201342863240160. She tweets at @JWilck.

Excerpt:

Josh sat in the cab and looked out the window. Lights and people and cars and buildings rushed by in a blur. His eyes glazed over and in their place Miriam appeared. Miriam touching his arm and reassuring him, Miriam smiling, Miriam’s hair shining, Miriam looking at him as he bent to kiss her.

Whatever made him do it? When they’d stood outside her apartment in the cold night air, her cheeks had turned pink from the cold. He smiled. She controlled so many of her outward reactions to things, but she couldn’t control that one.

From his height and angle, he’d watched the light from the street lamps shine on her hair, making it appear to glow. Their breath, a white fog, had intermingled as they stood facing each other.

Her lips were soft and plump. He’d spent the evening watching them mold words, stretch into a smile, surround her food as she chewed. He couldn’t help himself; he’d wanted to kiss her. It was the briefest wish. He’d made the slightest move toward her. But in the one too-brief second, he’d glimpsed much more. Her pupils had dilated, she’d raised her face to his and she’d parted her lips. He’d discovered Miriam’s desire.

And now he knew she wanted him, it would take all of his control not to give in to his own need.

 

 

 

 

Dragon Betrayal – TBR August 2014

Eden Glenn author of erotic romance, contemporary and paranormal addressing all spectrums of relationships; menage, f/f; lesbian; m/m; gay and m/f.

Good morning everyone! It’s a beautiful Monday in the mountains. I am going to give you a wee taste of the free read that is due to release August, 2014. “Dragon Betrayal”.

I shall set the stage.  In Dragon Guardian we meet Cathwren ‘Wren’ and two hunky dragon shifters, Ethan and Caleb. They have a character arch to follow and are rather neanderthal in this first vol 1 of the trilogy. Wren is rather unsure of herself but gaining ground quickly. This is vol 1 and begins the romance between the three.

Additionally, I have previously published with Rebel Ink Press a variety of side novellas and novellettes that generally have these three as walk on characters and little cameo appearances from various characters in the world. Slivers that touch upon the world of Wyrmarach.

Those titles of The Amethyst Desire Collection (in order) are Raynia’s Magic; Beverly’s Secret; Phoenix Reborn; Shifter’s Legacy; Emma’s New Year.  Two other novellas, Dar’kind Promises and what was titled Dragon’s Unbound…to be re-released as Dragon Emergence (this fall) also tie into this world.

Dragon Betrayal is a bit of the back story of a side character in Dragon Guardian. Kiernan comes in strong, dark, tortured and mysterious. I planned on this free read as a bit of a reward for faithful followers. Also it intentionally poses a lot of questions.  It is not designed as an encapsulated story, my friends. It is a hook and I won’t mince words on that. Some of this will be resolved in the next novel “Dragon Mark” as part of the secondary romance building in that volume 2.

DragonBetrayal_LargeResCover (3)Draft Blurb:

M/F Erotic Paranormal Romance

Kiernan Walker couldn’t seem to get the black haired healer, Isobeau Monroe out of his thoughts. E-sa-bow he’d whispered her name, let her feel his need.

Now he was in the service of the Enforcers, the mates of the rising Dragon Guardian.   Isobeau guides him on a healing journey taking him back to revisit the past that set him on a path of self destruction.  What will be the ultimate Dragon Betrayal?

Now this story is under the setting staged in Dragon Guardian.  Kiernan was held and tortured by the enemy for six months in dragon form. Cathwren “Wren” saves his life in D.G.  It’s up to Isobeau to guide him on a metaphysical healing journey to tie together some of the loose ends.  This novellette explores what he experiences going back into the past during that journey.  The blurb needs a bit more work, that’s why it’s a draft.  Blurb writing is hard! LOL

draft excerpt:
The Dragon who was Kiernan stared down at the sultry healer Isobeau. He turned his head to consider her with one large eye. E-sa-bow, he savored her name in his mind. At the moment she was yapping at him like a terrier with a rat.
“First you don’t want to shift to dragon so we can heal your beast and now you don’t want to shift to human. Healing is a balance between metaphysical beings. You’re not cooperating.”
When had he ever been cooperative?
 

I’m off to work on edits for Kiernan’s story and see if I can wrestle this dragon to ground.

I would love to discuss this work with readers and look forward to your comments.

Marketing for Authors – One

One of my friend and a fellow Rebel Ink Press author Lori J. Gordon asked the following question. While I quote her. I very easily could have written these same words. We all FEEL this.

“I’m going to ask for help here….I am sadly failing at promoting. I see a lot of you doing so well and have to ask what are you doing? (Please keep in mind I’m on a very tight budget.) I admit I could be a bit lazy about this but it’s past time I got serious. Need advice on where to start?”

Haven’t we all been in that place. I was. Heck! I still AM!!!

Okay. Let me say first loud and clear and unequivocally. I have NO IDEA what works in promoting and marketing. Is it a mystery? Some divine club that senior members give you the golden ticket and it helps us all know what to do? I don’t think so.

The industry is changing moment by moment. I’m not sure its not all about Promoting and Marketing, really. We’re asking ourselves. How do I be a professional author? How to I gain a following of readers? How can I have sales and be successful at writing books? What can I do that will make a difference?

So, let’s explore this concept together over the next few weeks. Watch for the articles I’ll post on Wednesday’s for awhile while we explore the mystery of Marketing and Promoting.  Let’s see if we can find any answers together. Certainly we can share what we do. Maybe ten years from now we’ll know if it accomplished our objective. LOL

I’ll tell you what I do as step one. First, foremost and your greatest priority is 1. Write the next good book. No amount of marketing will work if your book sucks the big stink or never gets written at all. And, we are all learning. I still haven’t necessarily figured out where to put commas. Sometimes my sentences faill to be … well… sentences. I have echo words that have to be culled out and boy do I miss a few.

The point is, I can’t think of too many authors who have totally “Arrived”. Well, except … well there are a few. The divine Queen Nora. Yeah, that woman has arrived.  I think she’s defined the word, arrived. She’s witty, humble, smart. She might not say she’s arrived but in my book. Oh yeah, she has. But I digress.

The POINT IS! we are all still learning and growing. I read craft books. I study. I dissect other books. What was good? What was bad? What hooked me? What made me want to throw it at the wall? I watch what others do. Observation and critical thinking.

So, READ is the second most important thing you can do to help yourself.

Write good books. Read Good Books.

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.

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

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.

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.

“Dragon Betrayal” a M/F Erotic Paranormal Dragon shifter novellette Vol 1.5 Drakins of Wyrmarach TBR 06/03/2014 Cover Reveal coming in May.

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

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.

“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.”

“Shifter’s Legacy” Coming this Spring from Rebel Ink Press

Addison has hopes and dreams. There are so many things that worry her. Cares she carries on her shoulders. She has fantasies too. Through it all she adores her husband Nathan and son Logan.

Her life is going to spin around when her husband turns one of those secret fantasies into reality and proposes to invite Duncan into their relationship.

Draft Excerpt

“Addison Barnes thrust the Jeep’s transmission lever into park with a ruthless shove. Damn Jeep. Damn fence. Damn wolves. Damn Nathan. She hated dealing with neighbors at dawn over a broken fence. Thank God none of the wolves had gotten out. The Jeep had required a jump to start in order to get into town. Right now the freakin Rescue was the least of her problems. Logan hadn’t been restless which meant she didn’t sleep either.  She’d put up with the pack stomping around her house till all hours last night, with their ‘I’m a werewolf shifter.’ Oh so holier than thou lowly human attitudes. Then, Nathan’s irascible temper like he was P.M.S.ing at whatever they were grousing and complaining about. Half she’d not understood and half she’d ignored. She was sick of taking that damn high road.”

With a lot of sex and a little magic, Addison begins to believe in the advantages of her womanly power. She finds joy in the love she shares with Nathan extending to Duncan. Will a one-time weekend celebration be enough for the three of them or will they insist on the promise of something more?

Baby Logan in a fit of temper makes his first shift to wolf and unwittingly sets things into motion that will bring danger to all their lives. Now Nathan, Addison and Duncan must prepare the pack against the threat of genocide for their race. Can Addison rise to the challenge and convince the pack, her husband and her lover to accept her as their best source for protection.

Shifter’s Alliance – Story to Follow: (Draft Blurb) Death comes to the small north Florida town in the form of Etienne and Julian Reynaud, two Wolf Hunters, er werewolf hunters to their friends from Louisiana.

Dragon Guardian Vol 1 of Drakins of Wyrmarach

Direct Publication to be released early May, 2014

Rolling in at potentially a 50K Novel Paranormal Erotic Romance (Menage)

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 certain death. 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 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.
