Werewolf Loving



The lone wolf stands on the hillside on a dark night, staring up at the moon. He tilts back his head and howls. The bleak and lonely sound echoes through the forest. He is alone, watching guard over his pack. He’s also more than just a wolf. He is a werewolf.
 

What is it about werewolves that fascinate us? Tales of such creatures—part man and part wolf—are sprinkled throughout European folklore. Some stories are even older, going back to ancient Greece. Part of us fears such a creature, while another part is drawn to the very idea.


Werewolves make perfect heroes for romance novels. They understand the importance of pack and family. They’re primal men who live by instinct as much as intellect. They’re stronger than a human male and have enhanced senses. One minute, they can be human, and the next they can shift into a magnificent and deadly wolf. What’s not to love?


Okay, so maybe they’re a tad bossy and have a tendency to be more than a little overbearing. There is nothing more dangerous than a wolf protecting his mate. It takes a very special woman to be able to love and live with such a man.


And there are a whole pack of men just like this living in Salvation, North Carolina. Interested? Check out the Salvation Pack series, starting with Wolf at the Door.


Wolf at the Door
Salvation Pack, Book 1

Gwendolyn Jones is working on an article about werewolves, not that she believes they exist. But there are people out there who do, like the nervous man who slips her a flash drive with information he claims will prove to the world shifters are out there. Gwen starts questioning just what to believe when two very real werewolves come knocking on her cabin door later that night.

Someone has a flash drive with pictures that could endanger his pack, and alpha Jacque LaForge will do whatever it takes to destroy it. But something deep inside him ignites when he knocks on the door of that "someone". He didn't think he'd find a mate, or that when he did, she'd be human. But now that he has found Gwen, he knows he has a fight on his hands to protect her from his former vengeful pack who are out to hurt him by any means necessary.

Off to Phoenix!

I'm off to Phoenix today to attend For the Love of Books and Phoenix on Saturday, October 20. Coincidentally my brother lives in Phoenix so I will get some time to spend with him and his family. Then I will have the honor of meeting with readers at the signing and seeing some writer friends, including Victoria Saccenti, Maria-Elena Alonso-Sierra, and Dorothy F. Shaw. 

It is the final leg in what has been a wonderful year traveling the country for various signings. I have met so many interesting people. Anyone who says romance readers aren't as engaging as those in other genres hasn't made an effort to meet them. Everywhere I have gone, from Nashville to Dallas to Cocoa Beach to Seattle to Reno to right near me in Staten Island, NY., I have had a wonderful time with friends new and renewed. It has also been the best way to network with other writers in my genre.

Next year won't be quite as active, but I will be going to Wild Wicked Weekend in San Antonio, Kinky in Kansas City, Delightfully Dirty in Dallas and Tempted and Tantalizing in Staten Island. I will also be attending a few author-oriented conferences. Maybe I'll see you there!

BOO HA HA

My favorite time of year is here and with it, lots of costumes designed to make you giggle. The costumes most giggle-worthy? The ones for dogs! Behold some of my favorites this year:



This little guy looks earnest enough to get the package delivered, especially if there are treats inside.




Bob Ross is everyone's favorite happy painter, so of course there should also be a Dog Ross.





I mean, really. How can you stand the cuteness?!





This dog blends so seamlessly into his costume I don't know where the dog ends and the toast begins. 





The small dogs don't get all the fun. This winner says I'm good enough to eat and then some.


HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

A Little Spice for your Autumn by Ripley Proserpina

In one week, the final book of my Wishes and Curses duet releases. I started this series two years ago, during NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. The goal of NaNo is to write 50, 000 words in one month. In the subsequent years, I’ve tried again to hit that goal, but I haven’t been able to do it. 



In any case, the first book poured out of me. I spent a month thinking about what I wanted to write, so on November 1st, I was ready to go. My plan was to just write one book, but at the end, I wasn’t done. 

Now I’m about release Revolution and Rising, and I’m feeling all nostalgic. Why can’t I write 50k again? Was it a one-off made up of the perfect amount of childcare, easy work days, and take-out? 
Or maybe it’s the badges that NaNo offers. I feel like everything in life can be accomplished if there’s a badge at the end of it. 


Also coming up, November 1st, I’m releasing a book I co-wrote with author, Rebecca Royce. This one is a reverse harem dystopian romance called Lightning Strikes. I’d never written a book with anyone before, so this was a blast. Both Rebecca and I tend to write spontaneously, so each time I got a section of work from here I felt like I got to choose my own adventure. 


I hope everyone is having a great October, and since I won’t be blogging again until November, here are some autumn quizzes to hold you over. Enjoy!

Lip Biopsy & Eye Surgery Part 2 by Jennifer Kacey

So last Tuesday I had a tarsoconjunctival graft on my right eye. Think that extra eye lid some lizards have that blink sideways! :P
I was a pirate for a day! On my Dad's Bday which totally delighted me!!

Took 45 minutes for them to get the tape off and my eye cleaned so I could see again. Talk about disoriented with only one eye functional!

It looks super owwie but it doesn't feel too horrible. Lots of sutures still in that should let go in the next couple weeks and everything should settle back down a bit.
Good thing...because I go back in tomorrow the 2nd to have the other eye done. My eyes are already super tired with only one done but I'd prefer to get everything done super quick so I only feel really bad for a short bit of time. Go Team!!

OH and today I'm having a lip biopsy done for one of my auto immune conditions.
OH and next week I have to have skin cancer removed from my back.
For realz....when it rains......

So I'm hoping for uber speedy recoveries for all the things and hopefully some more answers and relief from some of my special snowflakeness. :)

Sending love to everybody and hoping you're all doing wonderful.
Love you all and thank you so much for all the support! You guys rock!!!
