Hi, everyone! If you read any of my novels and you liked them, would you add one of my 2015 titles to the Goodreads Choice Awards 2015? Right now, An Immortal Valentine’s Day, Raphael, and The Lonely wolf are eligible. Example on how to vote below. Thank you!!!
Maybe it bears repeating. Who knows?
To the ones who use Amazon like their personal library card:
Please remember that indie authors already give away books for free. Buying an entire series, book after book, only to ask for a refund as soon as you are done reading them it’s like shooting on the Red Cross, while the paramedic is saving a puppy, a kid, and her elderly grandmother, during a catastrophic earthquake which generated a tsunami of Armageddon proportions. You don’t want to be that person, do you?
As any other voracious reader, I have favorite series and authors. Angela Roquet is one of them, and her urban fantasy series Lana Harvey, Reapers Inc. is one I consider an instant classic in its genre. Imagine a whole society populating the after life with its own angsts and day to day struggles. Add a few super villains along the way, an intrepid although unwilling heroine, a few angels and demons vying for her attention, and you got the idea. Death Wish is the fifth installment, and there were so many things I loved about the story, but without spoiling it for everybody else, I’ll only say that all the characters have grown a lot. The atmosphere is getting darker and darker, and I love it. If you haven’t given this series a try yet, I would recommend that you get a copy of the first book, Graveyard Shift, which is free. You’ll be hooked in no time, I guarantee it!
It’s Romancing September time!

Welcome to Day 12 of #RomancingSeptember
Our guest today is Monica La Porta and her book The Lonely Wolf
Where is your home town?
I’m originally from Rome, Italy, but I now live in Redmond, a small town in Washington State, in the US. Rome and Redmond have nothing in common, one is chaotic, colorful, and ancient, while the second is peaceful, green, and new. Yet, I love them both because they fulfill different needs I have.
How long have you been writing romance?
I have been writing love stories since 2009. Publishing a book was one of the items in my bucket list, and around that time I was reminded of how precarious life can be. I started writing one rainy morning and I haven’t stopped since.
What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?
Both paranormal and science fiction romance are my favorite, but throw in the midst…

Well, as final as it can be, considering I’m forever tinkering with my covers. After more than ten tries, here is the one image I chose to describe The Lonely Wolf’s story.
The Lonely Wolf, the sixth in the Immortals series, is coming out next Saturday, September 12th, and it will be 99 cents at launch only.
As it usually happens with my creative process, I’m still tinkering with the cover. After a first poll, I am down to an image, but I’m seeking counsel on the color of the sky behind the model. Which one do you like? Red/orange, blue, or black and gray?
The Lonely Wolf:
The archangel and the alpha werewolf, two men from rival species, an everlasting forbidden love.
A father and a son, estranged for eighteen years and reunited by fate.
Amidst bigotry and racism, Ludwig and Quintilius have been in love for almost two thousand years. Yet, their relationship is put to the ultimate test when Ludwig is named archangel, and he must decide between Quin and his brethren.
Lupo is a young, misguided werewolf in search of an identity and full of anger. Seeking to secure his position among the Reds, the most feared street gang in Rome, he commits himself to a life of crime, only to find love where he least expected.
One morning, after rescuing a vampire from a vicious werewolf attack, Ludwig makes a discovery that will link Quintilius’s and Lupo’s lives forever. But despite their good intentions, love and happiness aren’t in sight for the three men, while vampires, werewolves, and angels plot against them.
Having finished writing The Lonely Wolf, I am in between projects, so I decided to give The Lost Centurion a makeover. I am still undecided on the background color for the cover, and I’m tinkering with the blurb. Thoughts?
The chains of Love are stronger than the bonds of Revenge
Marcus has sworn to avenge his wife’s death—even if it takes an eternity to hunt down the vampire who murdered her.
Once a Roman Centurion, Marcus is now immortal and, for the past two thousand years, impervious to human emotions but for his hatred for the vampire race. Until the night he rescues one of them, a frail newborn vampling, Diana, and she becomes his responsibility.
Hunted by vampires, Marcus must choose between avenging his dead wife or saving Diana from the same man who ruined his life. Will the power of love win over his desire for revenge? Bewitched by the Amalfi moon, he soon discovers life might still surprise him.
