It's Official!

I’m getting published!

Yes, you better believe it. It’s been a pretty long journey, but I’m happy with the results. So far I can tell you these factoids:

- The book will be published by Decadent Publishing
- It’s a short story feature for their 1 Night Stand Series (click to check it out).
- This will be an e-book release only.
- It is erotic romance and for my friends who may not read those types of stories I completely understand. I’ll write more stories for other genres I’m sure.
- I couldn’t be happier. This story blazed out of nowhere and I really didn't plan on writing it right away; until the characters wouldn't leave me alone. *Fellow writers you know how that goes.

There were so many people that helped make this possible and I can’t thank them all enough for the feedback, the support, and the Hoo-Ra’s since the announcement. If you have heard my personal thanks you can be sure that it will be coming soon.

Tour Stop: This Time Next Year Blog Tour +Giveaway

Blog Tour!
So there's this awesome book out. I beta'd this book, and I have to admit I'm really excited about this release. Here's a blurb:

Vampire Kiernan Shaw has never forgotten the night twenty years ago when he’d been forced to stand by while another vampire killed a six-year-old girl’s parents in front of her. He’s spent the better part of the last two decades watching over her, protecting her and hoping for an opportunity to make amends one day.

Ever since surviving the vampire attack that killed her parents, Moira Curran has dealt with the resulting nightmares and abandonment issues the only way she could—by throwing herself into her biochemistry career, preferring a life of a hermit in her lab to facing the reality of her lonely life.

Madame Eve brings them back together for one fateful night. An immediate bond of sizzling chemistry and respect forms, but can it heal her fears and his guilt?

Still not sure? Well, as a special treat I've got our hero Kiernan in a chair and ready to answer some questions about himself. Maybe that will help make up your mind. :) 

I've never hosted a vampire on my blog before, let alone one as good looking and steadfast as you. Moira is a lucky woman. 

*chuckle* You’re too kind. And if you wouldn’t mind passing that along, I’d appreciate it.  ;)

But I've got a few questions for you. One being, what's your take on true love? 

Excellent question, and one I’ve thought quite a bit about over the last several years.

I believe true love is something rare and beautiful, and that once you find it, you should never let it out of your grasp. You guard it with your life, you fight for it, you defend it. If you’re lucky enough for someone to love you with their entire being, you do not take that love lightly.

What's your motivation, career goals? Blood? Companionship? 

*Grin* My motivation is currently in the other room talking to her best friend on the phone. Currently, I’m focusing on training Moira to curb her…less loveable traits. So far, she’s proven a good student, though she enjoys hunting a little too much. I have the feeling her lab experiments were never quite as exciting.

Otherwise, since I have all of my old Master’s assets, we lead a comfortable life. I’m hoping to continue Moira’s training, then perhaps find a coven.

Your favorite word and why? 

Spifflicated. When I was…well, human…it was a favorite word for “drunk.” Words these days don’t have the same punch. Sometimes I say it just to make Moira laugh.

Your least favorite word and why? 

Any of this new vernacular. My mate is a fan of the word “whatever.” She uses it at every opportunity, and it makes me insane.

What advice would you give for those of us considering a 1 Night Stand? 

Trust in Madame Eve’s choice. I still don’t know if she’s a jinn or a goddess, but she’s a miracle-worker.

Another treat is Cate's giving away copies of her book. That's right. So enter for a chance to win.
