I am a bit late to the party here, but I just wanted to share the recently released (and pretty damned cool) cover to “Miranda’s Rights,” Book Two in Lily Luchesi’s Paranormal Detectives Series.

The book will be released on January 8th, 2016 by Vamptasy Publishing.
The cover art is by Rue Volley.

#FirstLineFriday (Chapter Seven)

25 Dec

Amaranthine by Joleene Naylor

FLFMerry Christmas! It’s time for #FirstLineFriday! On Friday, authors post the first one or first two lines of a potential work, a work-in-progress, or a published work  on their blog, and title the post #FirstLineFriday (just like this). It’s  a lot of fun, so feel free to join in! You can share your link on my blog comments, or on Rami Ungar’s (the brains behind FLF).

Today’s first line comes from Chapter Seven of Masque of the Vampire (available for pre-order with an April 1st release date) :

It was near two a.m. when they stopped for gas near the Canadian border. Signs advertising tourist stops peppered the gas station.

“It was almost two a.m.” might be better – what do you think?

Then consider giving them “Ujaali,” Laura Enright’s sequel novel to her widely praised “To Touch the Sun.”

“Ujaali” is the second book in Laura’s “Chicago Vampire Series,” and it’s been eagerly awaited ever since the inaugural book won fans over to the story of Narain Khan, the vampire chef.  Take a look at the uniformly glowing reader reviews for both “Ujaali” and “To Touch the Sun.”  Why not make a gift of both books?

“Ujaali” at Amazon.com

I know this is a writing/author blog, but in the end publishing is really a small business, and so I wanted to take a moment to share links to some other awesome small businesses – they may not sell books, but their wares are no less awesome! Even better, in most cases there is still time to order for Christmas if you’re speedy.

  • Bubbles Bubble Soap. What can I say, I have a weakness for scented things, and I LOVE homemade soap. Add the two together for awesomeness! And not just soap, there are also bath fizzies and even soap meshy-bags (I’m sure there’s a better term for this). I’m excitedly waiting for my order right now. You can check out the Bubbles Bubble Facebook Page, The SquareUp site, or the website.
  • Catie’s Younique Boutique Makeup. I’m a cheapskate and expensive makeup is…

Bad Food. Good Idea.

Secret Diary Of PorterGirl

Whilst always delighted to be in the scintillating company of young Organ Scholar, I am rather perturbed that our unexpected addition to the table will delay Professor Duke’s revelations about his mysterious hat. There is clearly an interesting story behind it and my unquenchable thirst for knowledge has a particular desire to be quenched, I must say.

As the Professor and Organ Scholar discuss the nuances of musical theory, my mind wanders to things beyond the riddles of bloodied messages and haunted hats and into the realms of knowledge itself. They say that knowledge is power and if such a thing is true, it would explain mankind’s relentless quest for it. At Old College I am surrounded by the phenomena; centuries of searching for innumerable truths have left the weighty notions of knowledge almost palpable.
