Check out this amazing photo by my friend Kate Bateman. Kate and I, along with our friend Erin Kelly Brown, went for a walk last weekend in Portland’s Forest Park (the largest wooded park within a city in the nation) and took all sorts of photos of the fall foliage, trees, moss — and moss growing on moss. More of those will pop up on my blog over the next few weeks as Kate adds some cool creatures and an Otherworld feel to what is very much our world, right outside my door…and that’s the wonder we live with! Snap out of the screens and see the beauty, people! End of sermon. Ha!
Back to this photo: Kate took a photo on our walk that is the background, and she’d created the faerie a while ago. Now she has a lovely, sparkly home. 🙂 This will be added to the Otherworld Inspiration page on this blog. Because we all need to be inspired!
Here’s a chance to read Tribute just before the release of Vessel:
Many of us addicted paranormal romance readers despise having to wait months or years to read the next book in a series once we’ve gotten our hands on the first. So I thought I’d let you know about this opportunity to read my paranormal romance novella Tribute — for free! — just before the release of the second book, Vessel. I’ll release Vessel Thanksgiving weekend, but I’m still going to let this giveaway run until the end of the year.
With this series, it’s definitely best to read the novellas in the sequence they were written. These books are written with a contained romance and adventure plot (no cliffhangers on the romance!), but also have a storyline that continues through the Children of the Sidhe series. They are also intended for an adult audience, 18 and over, because there’s plenty of steamy sex. 🙂
Here’s a short description of Tribute, and the series:
Tribute (Children of the Sidhe, Novella One)
Hazel Fintan is the reluctant daughter of the Irish love god, Aengus. As much as she loves the Sidhe lifestyle, with baubles and leisure galore, she’s never cared for her father’s world, or his kind. So who could expect her to be happy when she’s drawn into a conflict with a legendary race over an impossible tribute?
The tribute may be what brought them together, but Ian MacIlroy knows destiny when it stares him in the face with stunning green eyes and a gorgeous smile. He’s asked for Hazel’s help, but now he has a new mission. Hazel will be his, at any cost.
Children of the Sidhe
The Sidhe dwindle. Slow to breed and quick to war, the ages have worn away their numbers. An old enemy threatens Otherworld, fearsome in numbers and in newfound magics. The Sidhe’s unloved part-human children strewn about the mortal world are suddenly their greatest source of hope.
