Goals for 2012 – and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone, and may 2o12 bring you all you ever wished for – health and love and happiness and lots of great books to read. 🙂

I don’t normally sit down and write my resolutions for the year, but I thought to sketch them briefly, mainly for myself so that I can whine when I don’t follow up. 😉

My plans are modest. Relatively.

I have a novella (futuristic m/m erotic romance) and a novel (sci-fi m/m erotic romance) that are in need of an ending and revisions. So I must get around to doing that ASAP!

I have several short stories (m/m erotic romance) that need ending, revision etc.

I have ideas for novels that want to get written! These include Book 2 of Storm Chronicles (aka sequel of The Falcon and the Jackal) and a vampire novel that has been on my mind since September.

And I will be happy if I do these things over the next months!

What are YOUR writerly goals for 2012?

Hot Angels and Cool Demons Blog Tour – Day 1

“And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.” Rev 20: 1-2

I used to be a good Catholic girl.

That was a long time ago. 🙂 Since then, I’ve sinned and not repented. Thankfully, bad girls go everywhere…

I always had a fascination with angels. Not so much because I prayed to them for protection, but more because I wanted to know who the heck they were!

Call me curious…

I mean, forgive me for my candor, but we’re not just talking emanations of God here, we’re talking an army fighting in heaven, casting Satan into a pit, falling from high out of pride or love, striding about and announcing doomsday events, and even fighting among each other where mere mortals can see them on staircases leading to heaven… (Jacob’s vision)

Who were those guys? Are they still around, still fighting, still obeying God’s every command, struggling to keep Satan in the Pit and occasionally failing Him, too human, too weak in the face of attraction and love to remain up high? Do they still Fall?

Well, do they?

And all the demons obeying Beelzebul, Satan himself, weren’t they angels once? If their essence was so noble and pure, can they be really evil? Is there no redemption? Isn’t love the answer?

In both canonical and apocryphal texts, we see many different perspectives on the legends on the fall and the nature of angels, showing us creatures who are far from perfect, albeit beautiful and wise. Angels speak the will of God, bring devastation or joy, like good little soldiers.

That gave me interesting ideas. Soldiers. A military regime. Monastic and strict lifestyle. Any physical desire is a sin to be punished and regretted. Angst. Rebellion.

Sex. 🙂

I do love it when they give in. I’m a cruel author.

Hence I set out to write a number of stories recording my own personal vision of angels Falling. And they Fall in such fascinating ways.

Because I thought, you know, angels, in the writings, never fell for other angels. They crave what is truly forbidden, and different. According to the scriptures, they fell for mortal women.

But demons are far more interesting as love interests. Fallen angels themselves, they are they ones who have already given into desire and need. They are tragically doomed by their choices, serving Hell and suffering the consequences, yet unrepentant and beautiful. They are the epitome of bad, sexy boys in leather. Who wouldn’t love them?

You do see where I’m going with this…

I threw together angels – handsome, repressed and aching with unfulfilled desire –  with demons – sexy, bad-ass, cool guys – and waited for the fireworks.

They were beautiful together. I had fun and so I secured for myself a little piece of “heaven”. 🙂

Do you love reading about angels and demons and their erotic adventures? Then check out Jay’s stories featuring the hot angels and cool demons (click on the covers for links to the book stores):

Meet Idriel and Eligor!

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. 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.

Meet Mador and Jay!

Binding Spell (m/m novella) published with Cobblestone Press.

Mador, a fallen angel turned demon and slave to a prince of Hell, never thought he’d lose his heart to a mortal – again.

Discovered by the heavenly host, Suriel is branded as a sinner, and told that if he gives in to temptation again, he will be banished from Paradise. Suriel must choose whether to remain in Heaven and lead the only life he knows, or follow his heart and go to Arioch.

 

Meet Jazar, Seden and Mayon!

“Angel Blood” (short m/m/m story) published in the Ravenous Romance anthology Three’s a Charm.

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.

https://jaydimeo.wordpress.com

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! 🙂

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!

Six Sentence Sunday – Iron bullets in Song of Love and War

Happy Sunday everyone!  🙂  Today I give you another snippet from my recently released m/m fantasy novella Song of Love and War, featuring Suresh, a beautiful elf warrior, and Thane, a dashing human soldier. Last week, Thane witnessed Suresh being attacked by human men and fight them back. Afterward, Suresh appeared to be in pain, but when Thane asked him if he was all right, the elf brushed him off and left.

Here is what happened next, this time from Suresh’s point of view:

Suresh stumbled through the roof garden, and made it to the bench under the potted olive trees before his legs gave out. He fell on the bench with a groan, pressing a hand against his chest. What was wrong with him? The wounds were almost healed, the iron bullets out. The effects of iron poisoning should be lessening, not getting worse.

Just breathe. Keep breathing.

More to come next sunday – stay tuned! 🙂
