They’re here! Yes, the first two books in the Tales of the Darkworld series came out last Thursday the 5th. I didn’t blog about it because I have been in OT hell. The day job was ruthless last week and I’m still exhausted. Deadline on top of deadline just wrung every ounce of energy from me. I’m still not done with month end functions and I’m truly crossed eyed with exhaustion. When the alarm went off this morning at 6 – and I went to bed at an hour that is early for me – I just wanted to roll over and sleep for 4 more hours.
I’m currently sitting in my towel, wet from the shower, and eyes drooping. I could nod off right here in my chair. Seriously. I may have to go home early because I already feel the telltale pressure of a king size sinus headache building behind my face. That should guarantee some sleep though.
So, Tales of the Darkworld are about shifters. In the case of the first two books, the shifters are black dragons. Book One Shifting Winds is the story of black dragon Declan Antaeus and a vampire he’s had a crush on for years, Elysia Granville. It contains sex in the cemetery on Halloween while 6’4″ Declan is dressed as the Grim Reaper with a real scythe and Elysia is dressed as Elvira. No TVC here. Only TDC – throbbing dragon cock. It’s probably all pretty similar to Dave.
In Book Two Hot Water, Bad Monkey will get his fill of TVC because the hero of the story is Elysia’s brother Colin who is, of course, a vampire. The heroine is Declan’s black sheep of the family sister Eden. This story contains sex in an infinity pool that is set to boiling by Eden’s dragonfire. This story has a lot more layers to it than Shifting Winds. It also has two scenes featuring the snarky elf Karl with a K, the very amusing gay wildling Corey Green, and one scene with the mesmerizing black dragon Vahid Delrey. You know these characters as Karl Erikson, Gooster, and Iron Fist.
Hot Water is dedicated to those three for allowing me to morph them into immortals (Vahid needs to email me so I can send him a copy) and to Jennifer McKenzie (ie Jennifer Leeland) who is better at pushing than an electric cattle prod. Jen also had a really great Thursday Thirteen on my release day with 13 reasons to buy Hot Water. Apparently, Jen really liked Gooster too because his character was the #9 reason to buy the book! Go Gooster!
I haven’t promo’d the books much and I still haven’t gotten around to submitting The Wise Guy for reviews. As soon as I’m not so groggy I’ll get on that. But speaking of reviews, I read the funniest thing ever yesterday. If you need a good belly laugh, a spew your soda onto the monitor laugh, you MUST read this. It’s truly hilarious. No TVC but there are things ever so much funnier. Ladyfingers. You HAVE to read it to understand. You’ll never look at those cookies the same way again. Go HERE.
Now, a taste of Marcus on this Monday. I posted some of my favorite photos of him at my release party over the weekend. Ummmm ummmm. He is just delicious! Here’s a really nice image of him to brighten the beginning of the week. Bad Monkey should be pleased.
Since I had two new releases those who post comments for the next two weeks will be entered in a drawing to win copies of the Tales of the Darkworld.
A couple of last items and then I guess I’d better drag my ass to work. First, if you want to BUY my books you can go to Pink Petal Books where they are currently on the front page. Second, if you play WoW and you’re in Blackwing Lair (I think that’s the right server) keep an eye on the mailbox. (But don’t ask me where the mailbox is because I don’t know. I’d have to ask Motley.) Apparently, Motley’s hot character iPanties gets up on the mailbox and dances… while taking her clothes off. Yep. That’s my kid.
Have a great Monday!
