The Wolf Pack Presents the Bad Boy Alphas: breaking Rules, Hearts, and Headboards one Book at a time!
Marie’s Journey, the fourth book in The Ginecean Chronicles, and my first young adult title, is out.
The core of this novel was written during Nanowrimo 2012, and since then it has changed title several times. The original idea was to depict what happened between the last two chapters in The Priest, but the character of Marie, a young fathered woman, demanded a different story. So, while I was writing this book, titles changed to reflect the overall atmosphere of the novel. The City of Men became Journey to the City of Men, and finally I surrendered to the evidence that I was never going to center Marie’s story around the City of Men’s wars, and I decided that the best title would be Marie’s Journey.
Or the ceaseless quest for that perfect image.
As it had already happened a few months ago when I published Prince at War, I hit the button to release Elios into the Amazon wild with a temporary cover. The image I wanted had the wrong measures and wouldn’t fit the required parameters.
The preliminary stock images I bought for the cover:
Image I wanted in the first place:
Alessandro Fiorini, my cover artist and miracle worker sent me a mix of the two:
I decided I had bothered Alessandro enough already, opened Corel Painter and added the lapis lazuli accent to Elios’s eyes, plus a little bit of turquoise here and there on the sky.
Gaia & Elios are finally out! To honor my loyal readers who have supported me above and beyond my expectations, both books will be $2.99 for two weeks, then they will go up to $5.99, their normal price. My first two romance/science fiction titles, Gaia and Elios are set between Greece, Italy, Seattle, and far away distant planets. Now, alien societies and Etruscans have something in common…
Four years in the making, but Elios’s & Gaia’s love story is finally out. A few minutes ago, I hit the publishing button for both books. Here are the covers by Alessandro Fiorini. Elios’s will be slightly changed, because I don’t like his eyebrows, but it’s a minor thing and it will do for a few days.
Hi, everybody, just a quick shout to all the wonderful bloggers out here. My editor, Amy Hohnsbehn-Eye, has just compiled a great anthology, Christmas Lites III, for which I wrote my very first vampire story. As with the first two editions, 100% of the proceeds will go to NCADV, National Coalition against Domestic Violence. Amy is looking for bloggers who are willing to host the cover reveal on the 26th of November. She will send you all the material needed to spread the word about this project. Pretty please, help us out, it’s for a great cause.
Before the summer, Jason T. Graves asked several indie authors if they were interested in collaborating to a horror/paranormal anthology. I was one of the lucky indies who were asked and having never written in those two genres, I immediately said yes. Fast forward a few months later and Off the Beaten Path: Eight Tales of the Paranormal was published.
Beside yours truly, who had serious fun writing a paranormal short, these are the intrepid writers who co-authored the anthology:
Sharon Sant, author of Sky Song and The New Moon
Angela Roquet, author of the Lana Harvey series and Crazy Ex-Ghoulfriend
D. R. Johnson, author of The Phoenix Curse saga
Jason Graves, author of On the Bridge, Blood Roses, and Morning Stars
Chip Putnam, author of The Reason Why Grandmothers Should Not Be Allowed To Read Vampire Novels and Prairie Zombies

I’m happy to announce that a few minutes before midnight last night, my newest addition to The Ginecean Chronicles, Prince at War, was released into the Amazon Wild. Baby’s fine, although with a temporary cover.
A friend of mine, C.R.S., just posted a comment about my Ginecean Chronicles on Facebook and I must share.
“It’s day two of hearings in the Supreme Court regarding the equality of marriage for same sex couples and everyone is changing their profile picture to show support… A thought came to mind… how about if, in an alternate universe, it was it the other way around? What if in an alternate universe there were only same sex couples and heterosexual couples were “discriminated against by society and the Law”? Well…my friend Monica La Porta covers this topic in her “Ginecean Chronicles”…”
