untitledAuthor A. K. Michaels has just announced the release date for The Dragon and The Vampire, the first title in the Supernatural Enforcement Bureau series. Mrs. Michaels’s new book will be out September the fifth, but since I can’t wait that long I asked for an ARC copy. And if you take a look at those teasers below, you’ll understand why I must read it now. Plus, I love dragons.

Decisions, decisions, decisions…

I have left people vote on my Facebook author page for a few days, and the majority seems to like the cover with the couple. Having taken in consideration several suggestions, here is another trio to vote for.

New Release Cover Dilemma

I am almost ready to release The Immortal Greek, second title in The Immortals series, and I am testing two covers. So far, the consensus on my Facebook author page is almost unanimous. I am curious to see if the blogverse thinks differently. I threw a third cover in the midst just to gauge reactions about two similar concepts.

My Very First Facebook Giveaway

I probably failed to mention here that I have a brand new Facebook author page. In my immense wisdom, I named my official page as my personal one, so…

Anyway, on my page I mostly post pics of handsome guys with fabulous abs, and if anything else fails to grab my audience’s attention, I’ll also post about adorable kittens. Today, I’ll give away an ecopy of one of my titles in exchange for likes and shares of my Facebook page. After the weekend, I’ll report for duty with the results.

The gist of it:

My Writing Process–Blog Tour #2

I was tagged by author D. R. Johnson to take part in the Writing Process Blog Tour. Debra and I both wrote a short for the horror/paranormal anthology Off the Beaten Path. Debra’s zombie series The Phoenix Curse is getting rave reviews, and the first title, After – Part One is currently free for the grab, if you want to give it a try.

Now, I’ll answer my 4 questions for the second time—I was tagged the first time a few months back:

1) What are you working on?

I am currently writing The Hidden Demon, the fourth title in The Immortals series. At the same time, I am waiting for my editor to send me back the third in the series, while I am preparing the ARC copy of the second. Meanwhile, I am marketing, marketing, marketing my existing titles. Little sleep and tons of espresso.

2) How does your work differ from others of its genre?

The Lost Centurion was compared to Gena Showalter’s paranormal novels, but I guess what makes my stories in The Immortals series different is the Roman setting. My flawed heroes live and fight in modern days Rome, and the city is as much a character as the immortals, vampires, and shifters populating it.

Love is Love Always3) Why do you write what you do?

I love writing about tormented love stories, and passions so pure they are everlasting. I like to dream with my eyes wide open.

4) How does your writing process work?

With The Immortals series, I have changed the way I write. I used to sit down and let the Muse inspire me. Now, I plan the story chapter by chapter, outlining everything from characters’ development to plot. It takes me days, if not weeks, to define the whole project, but when I’m done with the outline, I am able to write from 2k to 6k words a day.
