I’ll be guest blogging on Monday, September 28, at Star Crossed Romance, asking and hopefully answering the question . . . Is the Vampire sub-genre dead? Since I write vampires and RAPHAEL and JABRIL are in release and doing well, annnndddddd . . . RAJMUND comes out early next year, I think you can guess MY answer!

I’ll be giving away a signed copy of RAPHAEL or JABRIL, so come by, make a comment and put your name in the hat! Clicky
See you there.


CREEPY FACT FOR TODAY: The 7 most horrifying parasites on the planet. The good news is MOST of them don’t attack humans. The bad news . . . SOME of them attack humans!! Check it out here. And lest you think I have no filter at all when it comes to creepy, I followed some links from the 7 parasites and found some truly awful stuff. I may not sleep tonight. ::shudder::

There’s a new review of JABRIL out on the web. It’s at Book Movie Reviews, and it’s a big Five Stars!! Check it out!


I’m the featured author in the The Pagaan Witch newsletter this month! And I’m running a contest there too, giving away a signed copy of RAPHAEL (or if you already have Raphael, you can substitute JABRIL, of course.)

JABRIL continues to do well against some pretty stunning competition–Patricia Brigg’s newest werewolf story, Hunting Ground and Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series (all eight books!) I love all of those books, so I can hardly complain if others love them too!


There’s a new review of Vampires in America at Paranormal Romance with an excellent recommendation from Dot in NY. Drop by and see what Dot has to say.

JABRIL continues to climb the best seller list for It’s now the #2 Dark Fantasy, sandwiched between Patricia Briggs and Charlaine Harris. That’s some pretty good company!

I hope to have good news about some future titles before too long, but in the meantime, I’m really having a good time with Rajmund and Sarah and Cyn and Raphael . . . in New York, the big apple. What better place for vampires to party?

Don’t forget this month’s contest. Drop me a line and win a chance for an autographed copy of RAPHAEL or JABRIL.

JABRIL is now in the top ten over at Fictionwise, on both the Best Seller list AND the Best Rated list. And it’s the #3 Dark Fantasy behind Lillith Saintcrow and Patricia Briggs’ new books, which is some pretty stiff competition! Yay!

I’m working on the final draft of RAJMUND, changing it somewhat (just for my readers) to include a little bit more Cyn and Raphael, ‘cuz we all love them so. And I’m also working on my post for a guest blog stint that I’m doing later this month. More on that closer to the date.

Don’t forget about this month’s contest! Post anywhere on this blog in the month of September and you’ll have a shot at an autographed copy of the BEST SELLING book, JABRIL!! LOL

Okay. Back to work!

So, I go over to to see how JABRIL is doing and . . . there it is, on the front page! One of the New and Featured Titles!!



Contests – UPDATED!!

September 3, 2009

The winner of the August 2009 contest was Annette. Annette’s a new reader, so she picked RAPHAEL and will be receiving her autographed copy very soon.

For the rest of you, don’t despair! I’m starting a whole new contest for September, same rules as always. Post anywhere on this blog during the month of September and you’ll win a chance at an autographed copy of either JABRIL or RAPHAEL, or if you prefer a PDF e-book of same.

In the meantime, I’m taking the Creepy Facts back to its origins today with this one: There’s a cheese known as Cabrales, which is supposed to be one of the finest blue cheeses in the world. And for some, the ultimate Cabrales is con gusano, which means “with maggots.” Alrighty then!!

PS I don’t like to disseminate false information, so I looked this one up to be sure. Here ya go!
