Day 9: 30+ Days of Christmas 2013


The winner of Day 8 is…Moria! You know Moria, you shouldn’t beg like that because you might just get what you wish for! I number all the comments in the order in which they come in. Then I ask Rott to pick a number. He picked your number so somehow he must have heard your begging in the cosmic void… 😉 Congrats!

Today’s line up is really special for me. Every one of these books has a cover done by ME! Jambrea’s book is a brand spanky new release (like yesterday!) Barry’s book is award winning and critically acclaimed and Angel’s book has superheroes! Having met Barry and Jambi in person I can tell you that they are two of the nicest, coolest people I’ve ever met. As for Angel, this is the first cover I’ve ever done for her and she was super easy to work with which is such a relief for a cover artist. As for my own cover, it’s one of the hottest I’ve ever made. I can’t take my eyes off of Brooks Johnson, the model. You’re going to love every one of these books, I promise!

Life is good for vampire Wilson North.  His family left him well off. His job as an estate attorney is prestigious, well paying, and non-demanding.  He’s gay and out and never had any issues being either. In fact, until the day he ended up beneath his car, bleeding out and only a few pints of blood from a sure trip to the Afterworld, life had never been a challenge.

When Will meets his destiny in the form of an enigmatic Magia named Garrick Forrester he finds the challenge of his life. Garrick’s gay but doesn’t live an openly gay life.  Instead, he hides his nature behind his ownership of a BDSM club.  The two men instantly know they are mates, but that doesn’t smooth the path to their bonding.  Garrick wants Will but threats from his past convince him that the only way to protect his lover is to leave him. Shocked by Garrick’s ability to walk away, Will struggles to understand why his mate doesn’t want him.  For the first time in Will’s life, something isn’t easy and he must fight for what he needs or give up his chance for happiness.

Drawn together by destiny. Torn apart by self-doubts and fear. Two men on the cusp of a dream must set aside the lives they’ve always lived for a chance at a new and brilliant future.

Warning: This book contains virgin sex between a sexy self-sacrificing wizard who’s never been catcher and an angelic-faced vampire who’s never pitched, a BDSM bad guy with dark magic, a mysterious royal Acerbian, and a host of characters from previous Tales books who do everything from implode buildings to change diapers…all to help two reluctant heroes find true love.

Damien just wants to be left alone. Too bad his variant talent as a locator makes him the go-to contractor for the government’s missing person cases. He can refuse, but it’s not so easy when the missing are variant kids.

Blaze Emerson is a sparker. People fear him as much for his ability to call fire as his obnoxious, violent temperament. He’s good at what he does, though, and he’s intrigued by the quiet man who can find people with his brain. Conspiracies, treachery, and wild rumors are only the start. First Damien and Blaze have to survive each other.
