RELEASE DAY: Waiting To Breathe

WAITING TO BREATHE

Special Operations 5

AVAILABLE NOW!

Cecil Montgomery took one look at Manuel Lopez and knew he wanted the handsome marine in his life. Convincing Manny of that might be harder than anything Cecil has ever faced before, especially when fate seems determined to keep them apart.

After one night of passion in the arms of Cecil Montgomery, Manuel Lopez runs in the other direction. Besides the fact that Cecil is so gorgeous he makes Manny ache, the man is rich, and Manny has a deep hatred of anyone with money, a hatred that goes back nearly twenty years.

When confronted by the man that started it all, Manny realizes he might have made a mistake, but by then, it’s too late. Cecil wants nothing to do with him. Worse yet, Cecil’s life is in danger and Manny and his fellow marines might not even be able to save him.

Rafeal Connell is a very serious Dom, and he wanted Denny the moment he spotted the sexy little man dancing at Dante’s Dungeon. Rafe is used to getting what and who he wants. When Danny refuses, it sends Rafe into a whirlwind of arousal and confusion, especially since he knows the little submissive is interested.

Denny has desired Rafe since the moment he spotted the handsome Dom. He’s trained, planned, and did everything he could to get the man interested. And according to Rafe’s friends, that means playing hard to get, not an easy task when all Denny can think about is claiming his Dom.

FINISHED & SUBMITTED: Forever And A Day

Forever And A Day

Wolf Creek Pack 11
 
Coming November 20th
 
Samuel Erickson, a human and former blood slave, hates vampires with a vengeance.  He doesn’t trust a single blood sucker, except for maybe Sully, the vampire that saved him. But trusting someone and giving in to the desire that burns within every time he’s around the handsome vampire are two distinctly different things. When their lives are threatened and they have to fight side by side just to stay alive, the hatred Samuel harbors seems less important.
 
Sully Buckley, a vampire, despises humans just as much as Samuel hates vampires. Nothing good could ever come of their association. Sully has been telling himself this since he first set eyes on the frightened human. To his dismay, he was finding it harder to remember those reasons the more time he spent with Samuel.
 
Despite the issues between them, nothing can prevent Sully from running to the rescue when they are attacked by soldiers sent by Samuel’s father. When betrayal comes from within their ranks, Sully knows he has to put aside his hatred and fight for his mate or lose him forever, and he desperately wants forever and a day.

AUTHOR SHOWCASE: Evelise Archer

I want to welcome author Evelise Archer to my author showcase...

Let’s start getting your shine on. Tell us who you are beyond an author. Beyond an author, I am a wife, mother and educator. I love, love to read and could spend every waking moment with my Kindle in front of me. I also run 5 days a week. I’m a complete shoe and purse-aholic. Let’s not talk about how many I own.

Tell us your preferred writing genre and the genre you prefer to read. I love to write MM, although I am taking a stab at MF. Wow, is that different. I never realized how difficult it is to write MF and all the girl bits…*smiling* As far as reading, I have to stick with MM, but I love MF erotica as well. And I’m always up to reading a good ménage.

Tell us an important lesson, on the business side of publishing, that you've learned on your journey. Promote. Promote. Promote. No matter how much the publisher helps promote you, as an author it is your responsibility to get your name out there. Social Media is the future and I’m not sure an author can survive without getting out there on Face Book, Twitter, Blogs, etc.

Going back to the beginning, show us the day you received your publication offer or the first time you saw your bound book. Damn, I couldn’t believe when I got my first offer. You send the book in, but you doubt yourself and check the e-mail every day. That’s what I did. And when the e-mail finally came through offering me a contract I jumped up and down like a loon. I was really going to happen. Even better, when the cover artist send me the mock up cover I smiled from ear to ear and kept it there for days! When my release date arrived, I checked the website over fifty times that day, just to see the book. I know, I’m a dork.

Do you write everyday? I try to write something every day, but am not always successful. I also review books, so I maintain an author’s blog and a review site blog. On top of all the reading and writing, I work full time outside the home. If I can get even one thousand words down a night during the week, I’m happy.
What do your family and friends think about you writing erotic romance?  I ask because some people us a PEN name and don’t tell their friends or family they write erotic romance? You hit the nail on the head. My family has no idea that I write, so yes…I use a pen name L
If you were a Superheroine/Hero, would you wear tights and a cape? I would definitely wear a cape and tights. And I’d also want a huge letter across my chest for my super heroine name. I have no idea what it would be, but, I’m so there. It wouldn’t bother me to run around in a crazy outfit, although I’d love to have purple in it- my favorite color. I can picture me now, purple tights and a black cape, with a large EA on my chest….oh mayber my name should be Evelise the Avenger? And my wild curls blowing in the wind?
Ready to shine? Tell us the name of your book(S). My latest book is The Legend of the Diamond Globe. It will be released on October 8th from Siren and is M/M/M/M. In January 2015, the second book in the Club Rebellion series will be coming out, Veiled Dominance (M/M). I also have Tropical Paradise 1Night Stand, Eldridge’s Release, Club Rebellion 1, We Are Daddy, Enchanted Love, No Others Need Apply, and Sebastian and His Woodsmen. All the titles are M/M, but I am working on a BDSM M/F
From one of your character's point of view, show us why we should buy it. Fahad, The Legend of the Diamond Globe….
If you need a little excitement in your life, a good cat and mouse story with sexy men, then I’d recommend reading my book. I may be biased, but my lovers, Eri, Adolfo and Cheveyo are walking sex gods. When I first laid eyes on them, I thought, holy fuck. I couldn’t wait to get out of the hotel room where we had our meeting and go home so I could beat off.

You see, I hired the men of Elemental, Inc. to retrieve a family heirloom, stolen decades ago. The diamond globe meant so much to my family and heritage, Palestinian Arabs and Jews, alike. The globe, a symbol of unity, had been stolen and in order to fulfill my family’s dream, I needed to get it back.

Of course, the globe hunt is not the only reason you should read my book. I am a Palestinian Arab and conflicted with my sexuality. My family doesn’t know I am gay, only my spiritual advisor does. I try not to think of it, until I met the men of Elemental, Inc. and then all bets were off.

Pick up a copy of The Legend of the Diamond Globe today and see what happens the four of us get together. You will not be disappointed.

RELEASE DAY: Poppy's Pleasure

POPPY'S PLEASURE
Assassin's Pride 2

This title is offered at a 15% discount. Offer ends midnight CST, October 2nd.

[Siren Everlasting Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Romance, M/M, shape-shifters, HEA]

Poppy lives in hell and has for as long as he could remember. The only bright spot he has seen in years is another prisoner being held in the cell next to him. If he can save Marcus, Poppy knows that he will have done at least one good thing in his life. He just had to find Marcus's friends and let them know that they are being led into a trap…and then go back to hell. 

Dean Stone is an assassin. He's cold, hard, and without remorse. He's also pretty damn sure that he has stepped into a crazy world. His friend, Gage, has mated with the cat king of a pride. His other friends are missing and the agency he works for is a complete mess. What's crazier than that? 

When Dean goes to the place where he's supposed to pick Marcus up, he finds something else altogether. Poppy is sweet and innocent and about as sexy as he could possibly be. He is also scared out of his mind and clinging to Dean like a second skin. And Dean doesn't have the heart to deny the man, even when taking care of Poppy turns into a full-time job. 

But when danger arrives on their doorstep, Dean's training as an assassin comes in handy, especially when Poppy is kidnapped by the same men that held him in the first place. And Dean has no remorse whatsoever about killing anyone that stands between him and the man he's falling for.

I’M RESPONSIBLE FOR MY NAME

It was 2008. The contract was signed, the book submitted, due to be released in April. When the edits arrived, all life around me came to a halt as I worked through the changes that needed to be made before my first book was ready to be released to the public. The cover came and I thought I had died and gone to author heaven when I saw my name on the front of the cover. That was my name on that cover.

MY NAME.

I made a sad attempt at a website on GeoCities. I joined yahoo groups and started talking, asking questions. I squealed with delight when I got to talk with my favorite authors and they treated me like an equal and not just a fan girl. I soaked up every word they shared with me.

And then came the news that made my heart still in my chest. Since all of my ducks were in a row, my book was being released early…six months early. I had less than ten days to get ready. I panicked and went to the people I had been asking questions of… And that was the day I learned that I had a responsibility to pass on my knowledge to the next newbie.

If someone writes a better book than me, good for them. If they take first spot on the best selling list, good for them. If they bump me out of my spot, good for them. If their book becomes more popular than mine, good for them. I wish only the best to every author out there.

The only person responsible for my books is me. The editor is there to help me put out a better book, but I wrote it. The publisher is there to help me put out a better book, but I wrote it. The cover artist is there to help me put out a better book…but it is still my book. I choose what I write. I choose what I submit. I choose what to change in the edits. I even choose whether to accept the cover the artist sends me or not.

That book has MY NAME on it.

I’ve talked with a lot of veteran authors, and just as many authors new to the writing world. Some are very secretive. Some don’t want to share what they know because they are afraid it will affect their sales. Some are worried that their ideas will be stolen. These are all very legitimate reasons to hold back what they know.

And then there are the others, the ones that took a scared, unknown author under their wings and showed her the ropes. They offered advice. They offered a chance to be on their blogs so word of my book could get out. They taught me how to blog and post and where I needed to go to meet readers and develop relationships with people all over the world.

In one moment in time, when all of these people I barely knew came to my rescue and helped an unknown author get the word out about her book, I learned what kind of writer I wanted to be. So, don't be afraid to ask your questions. I will answer if I can.

My name is Stormy Glenn and I am responsible for me.
