How stories are born (or, how elves rule my life)

This won’t be a long post – just an update on how a certain elf has taken over my life right now and insists to have his story told no matter what. “But I have other projects started!” I protest and grumble, “I need to finish a novel, work on some other ideas! Where did you sprout from?”

“Hi,” he says, “my name is Tush and I’m a Silver Elf. I need your help, because circumstances have forced me to become a slave.”

Drat. How can I not fall for this ploy to break my heart? He looks at me with those pretty eyes all sad and I just can’t turn my back to him.

Typical story.

So I found a strappy young human male for him, to help him out. The things I do for a pretty boy… /eyeroll/ 😀

 

Here is a pic of what he looks like more or less (his eyes are actually gray and his hair is also more iron-silver gray) – have a look and tell me if you wouldn’t drop everything to help him out!

 

 

 

I wish you all a very nice day!

Launching the “Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour” – Intro By Misty Malone

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to the launch party of the The Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour!

For two weeks, known authors of romance and erotica will talk about angels and demons, and present to you their stories. Join us in this exquisite blog hopping tour, starting today!

Opening this tour is erotic romance author Misty Malone (Phaze books), so without further ado, here is what she says to you today:

Launching the The Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour

By Misty Malone

Maybe it started with that book about the feud between the Vatican and the Illuminati.  Or maybe it was a popular TV show about two brothers chasing paranormal activity across the country.  But whatever the reason, tales of angels and demons have witnessed a recent resurgence across the landscape of literature, flying from the pages into our minds and hearts.

And sometimes, pants.

Whether it’s a fallen angel with a sin staining his soul, or a succubus searching for her one true love, we can’t get enough of these heavenly hosts and demonic bad boys.  Perhaps it’s because together they hold the experience we lack in their hands.  Some are full of tricks while others grant miracles in the darkest of times, which both inspire and frighten us.

Without a doubt, angels and demons have become more accessible in recent years. Before, they were discussed only theologically.  Just a couple of decades ago, it would have been blasphemous to write about them at all because they were considered very real. Now, though, they’re like faeries, elves, and ghosts—improbable, but not impossible.

Angels are known for intoxicating beauty, their presence awe-inspiring, their energy irresistible and almost heartbreaking.  And if we can believe in redeemed vampires, then it’s not such a big leap to accept a demon has the same capacity for goodness and salvation and sexiness.  Then, of course, there’s that age-old question of whether their opposite natures will keep them forever apart continues to tantalize our imaginations and leave us craving for ever more interpretations on that theme.

And it’s that insatiable desire that gave rise to the Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour.  Author Jay Di Meo has gathered sixteen of today’s hottest, most divine, most sinful authors who dabble in the heights of heaven and the pits of hell to bring you spicy tales of these ancient creatures that have held our collective consciousness for centuries.

But don’t just take my word for it.  Follow the Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour to quench your thirst.  And for each comment you make on any post of the Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win one free ebook from each of these authors!  Check back right here for a tour wrap up from Jay Di Meo, Marie Dees, and myself on November 30 to see if you’ve won.

And in the meantime, join us and come play where sexy angels and seductive demons dwell.

Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour starting tomorrow!

Who isn’t fascinated by angels and demons? Erotic romance writers certainly are! 🙂 We can’t resist the chance to toy with such heavenly or fallen creatures, all beautiful beyond imagining and fighting or succumbing to temptation.

This is our playground! 🙂

With this in mind, a group of writers of erotic romance got together and organized a blog tour to talk about our fascination with angels and demons, and about our stories where they star.

Starting tomorrow, on this blog, we launch this tour with author Misty Malone (author at Phaze press) introducing us to the concepts and the whole idea behind the tour, as well as to the participants and the programme of the tour – for your pleasure! 🙂

Each day, for two exciting weeks, known authors of erotica will be blogging, one each day, on their blogs. By the end, you will know as much about angels and demons as about wonderful stories featuring them.

AND, at the end, on 30th Nov, we will conclude and one lucky commenter will win books from all of us. 🙂

So, tune in, starting tomorrow, to this blog and follow us as we tour great authors’ websites and discuss great stories. See you there! 🙂

Six Sentence Sunday – Suresh dances

 Hi everyone following the excerpts of Six Sentence Sunday! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

I continue with snippets from my m/m paranormal (elves/humans) novella published by Amber Allure, called “Song of Love and War”, featuring Suresh, an elf, and Thane, a human. Elves aren’t much liked by humans in this world, since most of them haven’t joined the war but instead locked themselves up in their subterranean cities to wait it out. Suresh has joined the war, but that won’t stop humans from attacking him – like here:

Suresh fell to one knee to avoid a blow, and his vision blurred. To die here of all places, when he hadn’t fallen in battle. Ironic.

At least it was quiet, and the trees stood by, silent witnesses.

Their leaves rustled again, and tendrils of energy probed at him. If he didn’t use magic, this would be his last dance, and Kalidas would win.

I hope you are having fun with these snippets. Visit the sss site for more!

Six Sentence Sunday – The human isn’t ugly…

Happy Sunday to all! Today we have another excerpt from Song of Love and War. Thane is human, caught in a war with the machines. The elves help along with their magic, but Thane never expected to meet an elf in the hotel where he is sent for recovery from a wound.

The elf, Suresh, is wounded too, and is just as surprised by his meeting with Thane…

Humans… Distant relatives of the elves, who diverged from the human evolutionary tree so long ago no memory remained, they had an innocence that drew Suresh to them.

Maybe not all were that bad.

Suresh clenched his hand into a fist. He could still smell the male human’s light musk, and an aftertaste of sweetness clung to the back of his tongue. That tall, strong body, muscles defined through the thin T-shirt, that fair mane, those cat-like eyes, those caramel lips…

😉

I hope you’re enjoying the snippets. Read more here!

Novel accepted – covert art ready for IDRIEL’S SIN!

Boys, girls and all that is in between, above and below:

I have the enormous pleasure of announcing that my wonderful publisher Amber Allure Press has accepted for publication my M/M angel and demon novel IDRIEL’S SIN.

Blurb:

Idriel, a second-class angel accused of murdering his comrades-in-arms, is sent to bootcamp on Earth. The last thing he expects is Eligor, first class demon and more handsome than any angel, who grudgingly takes Idriel under his protection. While waiting for his sentence to be passed, Idriel trains with Eligor and finds himself falling hard for said demon. But Idriel’s days on Earth are numbered, and he knows it. Soon he will be sent to the Pit, according to Heaven’s Law, and nothing can stop it from happening – until all Hell quite literally breaks loose and what Idriel considered a sin may now be his only salvation.

AND I have beautiful cover art! *is immensely pleased* 🙂

Tentative release date:

E-book: End November

Print: Mid December

To celebrate, I am thinking of writing a very short story with — what else? — angels and demons. 🙂

Have a great day!
