Open Thread for Authors (Author Promo) for December 2009

Welcome to the December Promotional Thread for Authors. What’s this you say? I read quite a few blogs outside the romance blogosphere and many of the big ones have a daily open thread where the commenters drive the bus.

The rules for Author Promo Night Open Thread are as follows:

The book has to be released in that month (i.e., anything released during the last week of November would be a December release)
You can post for yourself or you can have a friend post for you if the idea of posting about your book paralyzes you .
No self published authors unless you write romance. No, I am not a POD hater, I am just thinking about the manageability of the thread.
Think about the readership. I.e., does your non fiction book about psoriasis really fit?
This one is more of a guideline than a rule, but be smart about your comment because if it is just a link to your website and the title of your book, I doubt you are going to get any interest.
DA reserves the right to delete the post if it promotes objectionable content (i.e., no daddy/daughter incest recommends are going to be allowed. Sorry.)
That’s it. Post away.

Another long time reader who read romance novels in her teens, then took a long break before started back again about 15 years ago. She enjoys historical romance/fiction best, likes contemporaries, action- adventure and mysteries, will read suspense if there's no TSTL characters and is currently reading very few paranormals.

    On Tuesday, the next book in my Hunters series releases.

    Hunter’s Need


    Duke is bitter. A shapeshifter betrayed by the psychic powers of Analise Morell, he cannot forgive her for putting him in the clutches of a feral vampire, but he also can't shake his desire for her. And when she needs a Hunter, Duke must face his demons-‘and hers…


    Desperate voices are battering Ana's psychic shields. A serial killer with extraordinary powers is about to strike again, and the tormented souls of his previous victims are screaming for her help. But Ana can't understand why they want her…

    Their INSATIABLE desire

    After what she did to him, Ana is sure Duke must be using her…but if he is, so be it. Ana can't fight her longing for him, can't fight the desire that's haunted her for years. For Duke, every fiber of his soul-‘both the man and the cougar within-‘yearns to protect and possess her….


    You can read an excerpt at my site and there’s also a contest at my blog…11/30 is the last day to enter.

    Thank you, ladies…

    Yay! I actually squeaked a story into 2009!

    His Intimate Submission
    from Ellora’s Cave Exotika line

    Months ago, on a hot Florida night, three friends explored one another. It'd been good enough that they'd explored together some more.

    But while the sex is as amazing as ever between the couple, Jason's shutting Lucy out of the everyday things. He's searching. Lucy doesn't know what Jason is seeking, but she’s scared that might mean leaving her behind. It's time for her to pull up her big girl panties and figure out what's wrong before things go really bad.

    Jason surprises her-‘he’s not cheating and he’s not about to leave her, but he has an overwhelming desire he's worried to admit. Lucy will have to demand her lover's intimate submission to set them back on the path to happiness.

    Reader Advisory: Contains a scene of male/male sexual interaction, ménage elements, and some very erotic female domination! This is the continuation of Jason and Lucy's story, which started in Curious Intimacies. While this book can be read as a stand-alone, do you really want to miss the events that led them here?

    Check my Blog closer to the Dec 16th Release date for a contest :)

    My book comes out on December 29th. It’s called GENTLEMEN PREFER SUCCUBI and it’s a light urban fantasy/paranormal with a reluctant succubus heroine torn between a sexy fallen angel and a sexier vampire. Oh, and an evil vampire queen, a rogue halo, and an ancient turf war between angels and vampires. The back cover copy (and sample chapter!) is available on my website here:
    The (kind of silly) book trailer is available here:
    Publisher’s Weekly said: Myles's debut somehow sustains an extraordinary, confectionery appeal.
    Kresley Cole said: Debut author Jill Myles just wowed me!
    Katie Macalister said: Sinfully sexy, Gentlemen Prefer Succubi is a deliciously wild ride that will keep you laughing out loud.
    My dad said: Vampires and sex? This sounds inappropriate.
    (Well, you can’t win them all.)

    The second book in the series comes out 3 weeks later, on January 19th. Thanks for allowing me to plug, Jane(s)!

    Midsummer Charm comes out on December 16th from Ellora’s Cave!

    Witch and warlock, a match made in heaven. Until a wolf stakes his claim. Midsummer night was never hotter-‘or deadlier.

    Maya enjoys the attention of a sexy warlock who fulfills her every wish and then some. It's perfect, really. Then he returns. David. The match made in hell-‘a hot, sweaty, scream-your-throat-out-it-hurts-so-good hell. The match who left her in the cold, may the bastard rot.

    In her spellbound erotic dreams, she embraces both men. They satisfy her body to the fullest, if not her heart. But on midsummer night, reality makes a comeback when she is confronted with hard truths and easy lies. And a surprise she never sees coming. Torn between the two men, she learns to her sorrow that one of them is ready to kill the other in order to win her love.

    She faces the impossible choice between heaven and oh-so-hot hell. And midsummer night has only just begun…
    Thank you, Jayne!

    My Christmas novella with Samhain comes out December 1st.


    Control is her kink…and she's losing it.

    It's another gloomy Christmas for Pamela Dane. Not only is it the anniversary of a dark period in her life, but all her friends had the nerve to hook up. It's not easy for a female Domme to find a playmate. Maybe The Cage in San Francisco will be the perfect place to escape-‘and find a willing man to chase away the memories.

    Christian Nolan is at the BDSM club for the hell of it. Yet the minute Mistress Dane takes control of him, she not only stuns him with her talent, he stuns himself with his willingness to surrender. Her offer to meet him there for another night is intriguing-‘and frightening.

    Pamela's session with Chris shakes her to the core, resurrecting memories she's afraid to face. But Chris isn't willing to let her past haunt her…even if it leaves his heart in tatters.

    Warning: Hot, strong man on his knees, which will bring you to yours. Strap-on action, anal play, lots of leather and tons of tension. Alpha male who likes to do whatever the right woman tells him to do, including another woman.

    In trade paperback and DRM-free digital

    At 12, Vanessa Whittaker defied her family to save 17-year-old bad boy Eric Cipriani from wrongful imprisonment and, possibly, death. She'd hoped for a “thank you” from him, a kiss on the cheek, but before she could grow up and grow curves, he left town.

    Fourteen years later, Vanessa is a celebrity chef at the five-star Ozarks resort she built. Eric is the new Chouteau County prosecutor on his way to the White House.

    Four hours apart and each tied to their own careers, their worlds have no reason to intersect until a funeral brings Vanessa back to Chouteau County, back to face the man for whom she'd risked so much, the only man she ever wanted-‘

    -‘the only man she can't have.

    My latest Samhain novella releases December 22 under my pen name, Ellie Marvel:

    Ebook: What She Deserves
    Genre: Contemporary Romance
    Ebook ISBN: 978-1-60504-851-2
    Length: Category

    About the book:

    At seventeen Winifred Sampson was sure of three things. She was a nerd, she hated Peter Duvall, and her crush on the quarterback would never be reciprocated. Ten years later, she can safely revise two of those constants. She's a sexy, self-confident woman, more than woman enough to seduce a former high school football player. She doesn't spare a thought for that turkey Peter…until she sees him at the reunion.

    My, how he's grown!

    Peter never cared that he and Winnie were the class nerds. So they were smart. So they didn't have dates. Big deal. Now they're both smart and successful. She was always his fantasy girl, and he's decided to make a few of his own dreams come true…in the most carnal way possible.

    All he has to do is convince her he's graduated-‘with honors-‘from dud to stud.

    Warning, this title contains the following: explicit sexuality, bad dancing and man-on-door violence.

    I wrote a prequel for this, a YA short story, that is one of Samhain’s 09 holiday freebies, though I’m not sure of the exact release date. But hey–free!

    Thanks for the promo op.

    My debut UF novel, Afterlife, is available from Damnatio Books from tomorrow. Squee!:

    Yasmin Stoker is a ghost tour guide who spends her days showing tourists around Shoregrave's haunted hotspots. She also happens to be a wraith who spends her nights hunting Revenants, newly-risen flesh-eating vampires. On one of her regular hunts, she witnesses a mysterious ghostly girl pulling the body of a teenage boy underground. Who and what is this girl, and why is she attacking men around the city? Yasmin investigates, but it quickly becomes clear that somebody wants to keep her from finding the killer and they'll do anything-including ambushing her with ghouls and cacodaemons-to stop her.

    With only a persistent private eye and a taciturn vampire (one of the Immaculate, no less) to help her, Yasmin must deal with fanatical necromancers, crazed ghosts, and a sexy history teacher in her quest to solve the mystery. And along the way she uncovers some heartbreaking truths about her own existence.

    Divorced, Desperate and Deceived hit the bookstands November 24th. This is the third and final book in the Divorced & Desperate Series. It's been a wild ride for my characters and me. Oh what fun I had watching these people let go of their pasts and fall smackdab in love.

    You know when I sit down to write these books, I don't know what's going to happen. I'm just as surprised as my readers are when the off-the-chart things occur during the course of a story. I swear, I didn't have a clue that that guy in DD&Deceived would end up dead in a Porta-Potty. It just happened. And when Kathy, my heroine, was in the bathroom and had to use the toilet tank lid to defend herself, I didn't have that planned out. It doesn't work like that. I'm just sitting at my computer all hyped up and about to have to a tizzy. And the reason for my panic is obvious. I purposely put this character in danger, and now I've gotta help her get out of it. And the only thing in the room that could take out a goon with a gun was the tank lid. Hey, you have to work with what you have.

    So what's Divorced, Desperate and Deceived about? Besides a dead person in a Porta-potty and my heroine whacking a goon with a toilet tank lid? Well, it's a fast-paced, quirky, romantic romp that sort of, kind of, reminds me of the old movie Bird on a Wire. It’s a story of second chances. The plumber, who ends up not really being a plumber, and Kathy the last of the Divorced, Desperate and Delicious club are running for their lives. And then there's Joey. Big, Bad . . . well, not-so-bad, Joey. This big ol' dude was another thing I hadn't planned on showing up when I sat down to write the book. As a matter of fact, he didn't pop in until page sixty and you can bet I gave him the second-degree for being late, because I had to go back insert him earlier. Yup, he is one of those characters that won my heart and earned a special spot in my book.

    The book earned me my second Publisher's Weekly review. And Romantic Times Review gave it 4 ½ Stars, Top Pick. But more important than that, I'm hoping it will earn me a several hours of my reader’s time–time that they spend laughing, sighing and falling in love right along with my characters. You know, pleasing those reviewers is important, pleasing my readers is crucial.

    Visit me at and on Tuesdays at where I’m holding contests.

    And thank you Jayne for this opportunity.

    Book Summary:

    Desperate to escape her controlling family, Chloe Bradford
    scrambles up to the housetop of her Texas home on Christmas
    Eve. There she discovers a sexy stranger cloaked in shadow. He
    convinces her to shed her good-girl image and give into her most
    secret desires. The man’s low, raspy voice tugs at her memory as
    much as it awakens her passion. Is he a Christmas miracle, or
    some figment of her imagination? When he tries to leave, she
    follows him, eager to learn his identity.

    Zach can’t stop thinking about Chloe, or their reunion on the roof.
    His wolf-half urges him to reveal his identity and claim her, but he
    doesn’t dare. For both their sakes, he must remain in the shadows
    until he can control his inner beast’s bursts of rage. After a decade
    he thought he could handle his curse, but Chloe’s presence causes
    his control to slip. As the moon-rages become more frequent, he
    knows he’s slipping toward the insanity that claims many of his
    kind. Only Chloe can save him, but will she want to after he
    reveals his identity and the reason he broke her heart over a
    decade ago?

    Rx FOR TRUST, the first book in the Doctor's Order series, is a sweet and spicy medical romance that will make you smile, laugh and cry-‘ the story of two psychiatrists with conflicting theories on how to treat their patients and tame their own emotions.

    It will be released on Friday, December 4th, by The Wild Rose Press. The story's theme revolves around a famous saying by Walter Scott:
    “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.”

    Blurb: An American psychiatrist, with a troubled past and secrets by the bucket-load has built a successful career where love has no room. The French psychiatrist, she loved ten years ago, detests secrets and threatens to unravel the secrets of her thorny past. Can he win her trust and love before her inner fears destroy their second chance at happiness?

    Excerpt:“Fine.” He raised both hands in a conciliatory gesture. “But I am stunned by this situation. Help me understand you. We dated for a year. I loved you. Why did you not trust me?”

    Loved. He used the past tense. Even if his love had survived for ten years, she'd killed it with her confession. The sadness underlying his question went straight to her heart. She dropped back into her chair, rubbing her forehead to lessen the tension.

    Why did he have to linger over the painful past?

    Luc touched her hand and enfolded it in his large one. “Olivia, you are a psychiatrist. You know you can't bury your past forever. Not when you have a teenage daughter. At some point, you will have to deal with it. Can you please tell me why you hid your daughter from me?”

    “Why can't you understand?” She snatched her hand from his and exhaled, wishing she had a magic formula to erase her bitter past. Resting her head against the back of the chair, she closed her eyes. “I told you I was terrified for her safety. Melissa is unfortunately the mirror image of her father. I was afraid that he'd find out he has a daughter and hurt us both.”

    “Did he ever threaten you?”

    Olivia blinked and struggled to suppress her bitterness. Threaten was putting it mildly. “He told me to ‘get rid of it' when I said I was pregnant. And he got upset when I protested.”

    “How upset?” Luc punched the palm of his left hand with his fist.

    Feeling her control slipping under his scrutiny, she turned her head.

    “Did he hit you?”

    She didn't answer. But he must have read the humiliating truth in her eyes.

    “Mon Dieu. I wish I had known. I would have killed this monster. Is that the reason you turned away from me?”

    Here’s the blurb:

    Alone with a man she can't forget…

    Two years ago, Lauren and Nic kissed at the wedding of her sister to his
    brother, but she couldn't face the prospect of being only a one-night stand
    for racecar driver Nic and turned him down. Now they're headed to his family'
    s French Chateau on Christmas Eve, where a fierce snowstorm has stranded
    them in a hotel room alone.

    It's up to him to convince her that she's the woman he's always desired…

    For Nic, sweet librarian Lauren should be off limits, and when she turns to him
    for a night of sex, what can he do…but agree. Their lovemaking is sizzling and
    sensual, with neither wanting the morning to arrive and burst their private

    Will their night of shared passion lead to more? Or will the desire for each
    other melt away like snow?

    You will be able to purchase this from and other places that sell ebooks such as Fictionwise, All Romance ebooks, Amazon and

    Go ahead. Try to resist the magic. We dare you!

    Carolina Wolf by Sela Carsen

    Debra knows that the teensy amount of witchcraft in her veins isn't worth getting excited about. Yet someone-‘or something-‘thinks it's worth attacking her.

    Lucy is doomed. Not to death. To nightly visits from recently deceased Casanovas without the bodies to scratch her itch. Then a living fantasy arrives on her doorstep. Is her dry spell at an end? Not hardly. Jake has been sent to prevent her from getting laid until a particular horny phantom-‘and key witness in his investigation-‘pays her a visit. by MK Mancos
    Even though she lives without a paranormalady, Lucille has managed to carve a niche for herself with a paranormal matchmaking service. Enter Jager, deposed king of the Titans and successful paratrader. She can match anyone, except him. She doesn't know that he's out to negotiate the deal of a lifetime-‘a future with her.

    Witches Anonymous by Misty Evans

    Amy is done with Devil-worshipping. After swearing an oath never to use magic again, she's in the market for a normal guy to complement her new lifestyle. And Adam looks like perfect hero material. Lucifer, however, isn't about to be nice about letting her go…

    Warning: This book contains hunky werewolves, smart-ass women and men who think that's sexy, magic, angels, medieval legends, inter-species romance, disco music and flatulent Boxers. (The dogs, not the underwear.)

    I posted this last night, I guess I got eaten by your spam filter. Next Tuesday Loose Id will release my Christmas-themed contemporary, Santa Baby.

    Back Blurb:

    Having been burned by his father's betrayal, real estate tycoon Trip Wakefield has no interest in love or relationships. Until he meets Arietta, a struggling, sultry, blues singer, in his favorite club. Seduced by the silken velvet of her voice, he pursues her with a single-minded purpose–Arietta in his bed, at any cost. He offers her a deal; if she will be his mistress she can have anything she desires, except his heart.

    A woman who knows her own mind and goes for what she wants Arietta decides that she wants him and his heart so she takes the ultimate gamble and agrees to become his mistress. But when the stock market crashes Trip loses everything. Knowing that he can't keep up his end of their bargain he tells Arietta it's over. Arietta takes another gamble and moves in with him and gives up everything she owns to help him rebuild his wealth. In a gift worthy of the Magi she offers him unconditional love, will he find it in his heart to give her the same?

    Maybe the last Black Lace book – unless they return to the market in 2011 – is my collection On Demand. It is, in the words of one review, ‘a frisky fruity fun fest’.

    Brief encounters in the bar, seductions in the pool or a menage in the elevator – this haven for the hedonistic promises as much heat, steam, lust and excitement as those who pass through it can handle. Conferences end with a bang; a gym instructor offers extremely personal training; illicit liaisons abound and flourish in the luxuriously appointed rooms. The daring sexual exploits of the staff and guests are often seen through the eyes of the Receptionist, who is on her own quest to snare the attentions of the charismatic Manager. Does the woman who offers a discreet venue for the indulgence of every secret desire and fetish – from satin sheets to rubber masks – have anything to offer him?

    If you’d like to find out, it’s available in the UK now here:

    I’m hoping for a worldwide release in early February. Thank you very much for this opportunity to promote my debut release – a beginning for me and sadly probably an end for Black Lace.

    NO RAIN, NO RAINBOWS, my young adult anthology was released November 29 by Books We Love Publishing Partners.

    Laugh, love, and cry with eight girls in their teens. Slip into their lives and experience the ups and downs. What would you do if you were the one meeting these real life challenges? Your beloved grandmother forgets more than she remembers. A guy you meet on the internet begs to meet you in person. An emergency arises while you’re babysitting. Your parents decide they’re no longer compatible. The secret to popularity eludes you. Your best friend starts shoplifting. You need to prove every girl has a perfect love match. An anonymous guy kept sending you romantic poems and gifts. These girls meet challenges with determination and triumph.

    If the sun smiles upon a rain shower, a rainbow appears. Without challenges, there would be no triumphs. Without rain, there would be no rainbows.

    Fictional stories with real life implications!
