A hot book for cold winter nights. The ultimate in romance!

A hot book for cold winter nights. The ultimate in romance!

There are those times when you just want to escape from the day and wrap yourself in romance.

Romance for a Good Cause

Aside from writing this blog I also write short stories for the WPaD group – Writers, Poets and Deviants. This month we’re going to offer my favorite “Passions Prisms” for only $0.99 (electronic download.) The price is cheap but these are anything but cheap romance stories.

A portion of royalties will be donated to Multiple Sclerosis research in support of a fellow writer who lives with MS.

VM_Tellias and Eleora

– A Greek god seeks out a woman he once seduced…
– A tragic letter from 1910 chronicles a young woman’s quest to find her lost love…
– A terminally ill teen finds forbidden love with Native boy.
– A historian travels to the past and finds herself in the arms of Benedict Arnold.

Enjoy these stories and many more in this passion-filled collection of short stories and poetry from the writers of WPaD.

Love can be many things.
For some, it’s sweet and sensual. For others, it’s tragic and painful.
Just as a prism transforms a beam of light into all colors of the rainbow, love blooms to its full potential, taking on a different shade with every heart through which it passes.
The stories and poetry in this book are as diverse as their composers. You will find a bit of everything in here, from tenderness, sensuality and magic to the inevitable darker sides of romance – pain, tragedy and deceit.

Passion’s Prisms is our salute to romance, presented for your enjoyment.

Authors of Passion’s Prisms:
Mandy White, J. Harrison Kemp, David W. Stone, Daniel E. Tanzo, Diana Garcia, Marla Todd, A.K. Wallace, Marie Frankson, David Hunter, Robert Betz, Michael Haberfelner, Suzanne Parlee, Anand Matthew, Juliette Kings.

Cats

Flat Cat (Oscar)

Flat Cat (Oscar)

I used to let my cats go out at night. I mean, they’re nocturnal, I’m more or less nocturnal so it made sense. Unfortunately there seems to be more urban and suburban wild life around in the past few years. We’ve always had a lot of possums, skunks and raccoons around but lately there have also been coyotes. They’re everywhere and thrive among people. But with people come pets. Coyotes eat cats and sometimes dogs. So if you hear of coyotes in your area please keep those kitties inside at night so they don’t end up being midnight snacks. If you have rabbits, chickens or other critters in outdoor hutches make sure they’re safe and secure.

Writing

 Vampires write love letters tooWhile I am not doing NaNoWriMo this year I encourage any budding writers to give it a try. That is National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a novel in a month. Ready – Set – Write!  It is a lot of fun plus you can interact and meet other writers with the same like-minds as yours.

Romance

Everyone needs a little romance! You’ll find it in Passion’s Prisms!

As the weather grows colder and the days grow longer (for my Northern Hemisphere friends, for those to the south think beach books) we spend more time inside with a pot of tea (or mulled blood) and curl up with a good book. For a short time the short story anthology Passion’s Prisms. I love this book. And good news – for a limited time it is available on Amazon and Goodreads for only $0.99. Can’t beat that price. Plus, not only will you feel good reading this book but you’ll know that part of the proceeds go towards MS Research.

Vampires

Halloween is over but we’re still here. If you hear any reports of Vampire Hunters or rogue Vampires please call your local Circle so they can take care of it. Please educate your kids, especially your Vampire teens of the risks. Also make sure all new Vampires and those Vampires who are out of touch get the same education. It is now time for outreach folks.

Halloween Hotties: Literary Vampires

vamp classic vbook4 vd books vbook hot Vbook vbook2 Vr&J vbook 7 vbook5 vbook 5    creepies images-1 nightcoach vampire empire

I love book cover art so no season of Halloween Hotties can be without Vampire Book Cover Art.

I’ve been designing book covers professionally for years, but unfortunately I’ve never had the opportunity to design covers for Vampire novels. Maybe…one day.

There are so many wonderful authors who are fortunate to have great cover artists/models/photographers/illustrators on their team.

So enjoy… and I think I’m going to be reading a few hot Vampire stories during the upcoming cold fall nights!

______________________________________

FYI – Passion’s Prisms and Creepies are both from the WPaD group – the publishing group I’m involved with. Both of these books include my stories as well as those from authors with impressive story telling talents. Both books are available on Amazon. Portions of the proceeds go to MS research.

For more information on Night Coach CLICK HERE (and be prepared to laugh out loud.)

And PLEASE if you have any suggestions about Hot Vampire book covers (or any Halloween related hotties on book covers) let us know in the comment section and feel free to add a link (even if it is your own book – we’d love for you to share.)

 Note: I added Creepies, not because it is “hot” but because it is a great book cover, a great book and I think it is really cute and sweet in a scary Halloweenie sort of way.

I’ve re-read so many of these works, by both male and female authors (15 in all) and I’m still amazed at how absolutely wonderful these stories are. Had me laughing, crying and just giving out a romantic “sigh”.

 

And by the way, I’m not receiving any money from this…I’m just posting it because it is a REALLY REALLY REALLY GOOD ANTHOLOGY and it is for a good cause.

I hope you all live happily ever after. Hugs and kisses.
