New Release! Carnal Moon


I totally adore this cover for my werewolf story, Carnal Moon. This short novella is now available at Amazon, Smashwords and other etailers, for .99c

I hope you enjoy the read =))


Blurb

On the first night of each full moon, werewolves cannot resist the calling—the instinctual need to mate.
Living a double life has never been difficult for Holly, but in her world, if her species is to survive, all she can look forward to is down-and-dirty, uninhibited sex with a different partner each month. She has never had reason to complain though. Until now.
She’s fallen for Ricky Mandela, her hot, sexy, human lover. Holly can’t pretend she has a chance at a family and happily ever after. Those are human dreams. But she can’t give him up either. Will she have to lie and cheat to hold on to the man she loves?

COVER REVEAL!!!! Yours to Uncover


I can finally reveal my cover for Yours to Uncover. Isn't it gorgeous!? This is book 1 of a six book deal (between myself, Denise Rossetti and Shona Husk) with Momentum. You can preorder Yours to Uncover from Amazon as well as book 2: Yours to Command and book 3: Yours to Desire. Check out the other covers on the MomentumMoonlight blog or at AusRomToday

Here's the blurb:


Is she willing to sacrifice everything to keep her secret and her lover safe?
It’s the year 2202. Earth is grossly overpopulated and seriously polluted. Rita Songworth has spent half her twenty-two years trying to escape the dying planet. It’s taken the last five of those years to realize making it in the hard-ass infantry is her only way out, via space transporter Earth Ship Siren.
But the journey to Unity, the new colony, isn’t easy. Rita has to resist an attraction to hard, brutish prisoner, Tristan MacFallan, whose masterful hands create more than the beautiful art he’s been assigned to make. His forbidden touch affects her profoundly and he sees things in her no man ever has before. But obeying Zane, her ex-lover and malicious lieutenant, who is appointed to keeping the prisoners under guard, comes at a high price. Is she willing to sacrifice everything to keep her secret and her lover safe?

Robin Williams

The world lost a wonderful, smart, funny and compassionate man yesterday, a man whose laughter seemed to hide a hell of a lot of pain. I think its safe to say he touched many of us with his amazing movies and acting ability, and his down-to-earth attitude that made him seem like 'one of us'. I can't even imagine the horror his family are going through right now.

I remember when Kylie Sheaffe approached me about co-writing a book. One of the characters in the book, Believe, was someone called The Professor. We'd always imagined Robin Williams in that role in our minds, imagined him playing that character in a movie based on the book. (Hey, you've got to dream big, right?) It seems odd, but for me at least, I feel like we knew him more intimately through the character, had some kind of connection there with the Professor's portrayal in the book.

If nothing else now, I only hope his death brings to light the dark, silent illness that is depression. RIP Robin, you'll be sorely missed by many.

Where I'm At...

Public Domain Pictures.net
I've got a few projects at the moment I'm working on. First off there is the ES Siren sci-fi continuity I'm working on With Denise Rossetti and Shona Husk, this is a 2 book each deal with Momentum. Cover reveal will be on the 15th of this month - LOVE the cover art
!! And then book release for our 1st books is the 28th of this month. Yours to Uncover, Yours to Command and Yours to Desire are available for pre-purchase.

A few months ago I also finished a project with other authors at Harlequin Escape, it's a bit hush hush at the moment though, so more news on that later!

In the meantime I'm writing to finish my deadline for the next ES Siren book, Mine to Serve, which is due in five days (shriek!!) And between that I'm getting some words down for my 4th Alien Hunger book, Galactic Blaze, which will go to Ellora's Cave.

Finally, I've got together with a couple of other girls for a new self publishing venture - will reveal all in a few months =))

Speaking of self publishing, I'm getting my rights back for three of my books: Carnal Moon, Moon Thrall and Kallie Revealed. I will re-realeasing these myself. I already have the cover for Carnal Moon - it's HOT!!!

Last but not least, I'm around 20k on my single title story, Mutant Supreme. I'll be working on that between my other projects (Short attention span much?? lol) and then finishing it off as soon as I can. Once that's done I can hopefully whittle down my other part-started stories...

BELIEVE



For the next few days BELIEVE is on sale for 99c - if you see it on Amazon for over 3.00 it should convert back to the 99c deal in the shopping cart. This book has had some amazing reviews and at 100k word length it should satisfy those of you who have been wanting more story =))

"The story is punctuated with the most beautiful poetry, which leads the reader further into the characters’ psyches and leaves hints of the tale to come. The way you feel about particular characters at the beginning of the story will be altered by the time you reach the end. The authors’ abilities to change your perceptions will amaze you. This story will horrify you, make you look over your shoulder to see if anyone really is there and take you on an emotional journey. I found this book fascinating. I hope you do as well."

"What is to say when you have an instinct, a dream, or a vision of things that they can't be real? A mother has an instinct about her children. A psychiatrist can interpret a dream. A visionary can visualize things to come. But have you ever wondered about the families of a person with the "gift of sight" or the people their visions touch?"


Blurb

Do you believe in the power of unconditional love?
James Edward Bowheart is a genius in the making, a student doctor who has it all . . . or so it seems.

His lawyer father is an alcoholic, his mother a strict, god-fearing woman with a critical eye and a cold heart. His sister, Josie, is warm, smart, and overly-sensitive. She sees things no one else can. In and out of mental institutions, she is reviled by their parents.

James begins to question his own logic, fearing the unknown when he too begins to see things, dream things, the drugs he has come to rely on exacerbating the problem.

Only when a new neighbor—a single and very pregnant young woman—helps him to see outside the square and accept the unexplainable, does he truly start to Believe . . .

In The Devil's Nebula



 If you've never read any of Anna Hackett's stories, give them a go. She's a fantastic writer who throws her characters into loads of angst and action. (I LOVED Time Thief). Can't wait to get my hands on her latest work =)


Action, Adventure and Romance IN THE DEVIL’S NEBULA
First there was AT STAR’S END and the treasure hunt to find the last remaining fragment of the Mona Lisa. Now travel to the heart of the Devil’s Nebula on the hunt for the gun used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln.

He lost it all.
His career, his woman, his sanity.
Two years ago, on a deadly mission to the lawless Devil’s Nebula, Commander Zayn Phoenix’s life imploded. Now the former Strike Wing pilot fills his days with dangerous adventures alongside his treasure hunter brothers.
But his nights are another story: haunted by nightmares of one unforgivable act.
Until an assassin lures him into a hunt. A hunt for her freedom from the Assassin’s Guild. A hunt for a derringer used in an ancient and infamous assassination—of old Earth president, Abraham Lincoln.
Zayn is compelled to join the perilous adventure with Ria Dante that will take them straight into the heart of the Devil’s Nebula, but not for money, fame or treasure.
He joins because Ria has the face of the woman he left for dead in the Nebula years before.

SCRATCH

http://www.amazon.com/Scratch-Mel-Teshco-ebook/dp/B00L91AYVO/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1403674978&sr=1-1&keywords=scratch%2C+mel+teshco

Had a lovely 4 star review, thanks to Stormy Vixen at Jeep Diva Reviews. Here's what she had to say:

Proving the existence of shape-shifters could prove to be a deadly proposition for Alexia in this riveting shape-shifter novella.  Her determination to honor her father’s memory leads her Blake and puts them both in sight of those who want to exterminate all shifters. As danger closes in, Alexia’s going to have to choose what’s more important, honoring the father she adored and or protecting the man she loves.
This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps the reader on their toes with lots of action, suspense, drama and passion.  The author paints vivid scenes with well written details that capture the imagination and the well orchestrated action and suspense draw the reader deeper into this short romance filled with strong compelling characters that are easily related to.
The attraction between Alexia and Blake blazes red hot from first meeting and the frequent sex scenes are an inferno of fiery passion. The reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement and drama as the couple run for their lives and the author surprises the reader with a few twists to keep them guessing.
While short and sweet, this action filled novella is enjoyable and entertaining and while I couldn’t determine if there is to be another story involving these shifters, I really hope to read Shad’s story one day soon.

The SFR Brigade Presents...


I'd love to share a snippet from my upcoming sci-fi release (which is a 2 book each continuity with Denise Rossetti and Shona Husk). You can pre-purchase your copy on Amazon but don't forget to buy all three books, which are coming out the same day, August 28th, and followed  by our next three books in the series in early November.

Here's my snippet:


An alarm sounded as a section of the barrier thudded to the floor. She turned to watch, almost numbly, as a prisoner king-hit a soldier, knocking him out cold. Another soldier’s whip snaked out, unleashing high-voltage currents onto the prisoner, cutting him off mid-scream, his throat convulsing and blood gushing from his nostrils. His body jerked spasmodically before he, too, fell to the floor.

Then a hand encircled her forearm, steering her away from the carnage. “You need to leave,” Tristan whispered urgently.

Rita choked back hysterical laughter. How perverse that a prisoner—and one in whites—turned out to be a better guardian than the lieutenant. She managed a nod, mouth drying when she said, “We’d best get you out of here too, before they lock-down the magna-cuffs.”

Any one of the guards could activate the cuffs. Prisoners within a ten-foot radius would then be magnetically pinned to the floor or walls. The ‘all whites’ prisoners—those deemed murderers or mentally unstable—suffered a far worse fate, the lock-down setting off intermittent electric bolts that coursed through their body, incapacitating them in the worst way possible.
