Author Offerings From Cinsearae Santiago

Title: Abraxas: The Haywire Halloween
Release Date: August 30, 2009
Author: Cinsearae Santiago

Author Website:

Publisher: Lulu Press

Genre: Horror/Comedy


Abraxas clanster Jonathan stumbles upon a skeleton key he believes was part of someone's Halloween costume. What it really winds up being is a demon's not-so-subtle way of getting Jonathan to do his dirty work for him. Jonathan's wishes start to give his Clan more headache and hassle than the 'fun' he hoped they would, as fellow trick-or-treaters and party goers start becoming the things they're dressed up as---with horrifying results, and much, much worse...

Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you as my guest once again and to find out what your latest author offerings is. What do you have for us today?

Thank you for having me back again, Rie! I’m happy to announce the release of the first spin-off from the Abraxas Series, The Haywire Halloween. This and future spin-offs center around Jonathan and the clan, who very often get into dark but humorous misadventures… usually Jonathan’s doing, lol.

I just loved loved Seeing Green. Tell me about The Haywire Halloween.

Jonathan finds a pendant that resembles a skeleton key while he and the gang are out on Halloween. Unknowingly, when he wishes for everyday to be Halloween, it sets the scene for total chaos for the rest of the night. Folks start to become the things they’re dressed up as, (which becomes VERY problematic for those who have really disfigured, monster-like and bloody-looking, mutated masks on!) Their source of their problem is a little trickster demon called Ock, who likes toying with humans by offering them a chance to play with his magic, hence Jonathan happening to ‘find’ the skeleton key in the street. Even the dead come to life, which is bad news for another character, Kurt, who absolutely HATES zombies, lol.

That sounds awesome. How did you come up with the idea for this series?

I absolutely, LOVE Halloween, and I doubt I’ll ever stop, lol. The idea came to me as I actually have the skeleton key necklace pictured on the cover. And knowing how Jonathan is, and how much he loves this time of year, I started thinking up a ‘what if’ scenario expressly for him, centering around Halloween.

Tell the readers about the other books in this series.

Book five in The Abraxas Series, Seeing Green, was also released this summer, immediately picking up where the last book, “The Abraxas Series: Books 1-3” leaves off. Both books are available at

What can we expect from you in the future, Cinsearae?

I’m working on Book 5 for The Abraxas Series, which should be out sometime by early next year, and also two more spin-offs now, lol.

I can't wait until they're out! Thank you so much for joining me, and please come back anytime. Before we wrap it up, is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?

Thank YOU again, Rie, and definitely! Jonathan is holding a special contest over at his (and Kiera’s) blog! I think he’s trying to reach out to everyone and say hi to folks in the process too, lol! You can find details about his contest at Http://

All the Best, Ms. Cinsearae S.

Author Offerings From Jessica Coulter Smith

Title: Whispering Lake

Release Date: August 25 2009

Author: Jessica Coulter Smith

Author Website:

Publisher: Wild Horse Press

Buy Link:

Genre: Paranormal Romance


While on vacation with some friends, Cassie finds herself drawn to a handsome stranger. Hoping she will finally have a shot at a normal life, she allows herself to care for Cole. When things get hot and heavy, Cassie's spectral best friend Matt materializes - literally.

Cole is secretly a werewolf... will Cassie be able to handle the truth? Or will the fact that he turns furry turn her off...

More importantly, will Cole be able to handle Cassie's psychic abilities? With ghosts popping up here and there, will they have a shot at a real romance?

Cassie has a choice to make. Will she choose the hottest werewolf of all, or the ghost of her dreams?

Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?

Whispering Lake is my newest release.

What is Whispering Lake all about?

It’s a ghostly love story that includes three very hot and yummy werewolf brothers. Cassie is a college girl who has fallen in love with a ghost. In order to take her mind off her really screwed up love life, she travels to Whispering Lake with some friends. While she’s there, she meets Cole – a tall, dark, and scrumptious werewolf. Things get pretty hot and heavy between the two, but Matt is never far from Cassie’s thoughts. When he materializes at Whispering Lake, Cassie realizes she has a choice to make. The ghost of her dreams or the hottest werewolf of them all…

That sounds very cool. How did you come up with the idea?

Well, I’ve always had strange dreams and bits and pieces came to me when I was asleep. As I delved further into the characters of Matt, Cassie, and Cole, a story started to emerge. Several months later, and hours upon hours of obsessing over the story, Whispering Lake came to fruition. Writing it was the easy part. Editing it and getting it published was another matter!

Is this your first author offering, or do you have other books the readers should know about?

I have a werewolf series, The Ashton Grove Werewolves, where we delve a little further into the lives of Cole (from Whispering Lake) and his two brothers, Gabriel & Michael. There are various other werewolves involved in the series and it’s currently set up for at least 5 books – but that could change. Moonlight Protector, book 1 of the series, and Moonlight Hero, book 2 of the series, are available through Wild Horse Press in both e-book and trade paperback formats.

I have a witchy stand-alone novel titled Magnolia Magick, about a lonely ghost who falls for a woman staying in his antebellum plantation home. Jesse’s been dead for quite a while, but Lissa makes his heart pound, leaves him breathless (well, if he had breath), and makes him want something he can’t have – his life back. Or can he? Lissa may have a few tricks up her sleeve that could very well grant Jesse his greatest wish – but there’s a problem. Knowing that she can’t fall for a ghost, Lissa throws herself into a whirlwind relationship with local banker, Jared. But will the small town banker accept Lissa as she is? Or will he turn tail and run when he finds out she frequents a magick shop, has witches for friends, and casts a few spells herself?

You can find my e-books on All Romance Ebooks, Amazon Kindle, 1RomanceEbooks, and OmniLit. The trade paperbacks can be found on Amazon and Target websites.

What can we expect from you in the future, Jessica?

In addition to Whispering Lake being released in August, the 3rd book in the Ashton Grove series will be available October 27th, 2009. I have also finished a stand-alone werewolf novel called Vicus Luna. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but it will come out in 2009 (if I had to guess, I’d say possibly December).

I have two current works-in-progress: Heart’s Desire, a paranormal YA, and Moonlight Champion, book 4 of the Ashton Grove Werewolves. Both will be released in 2010.

Thank you for joining me. Is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?

If anyone would like to follow my blog, I often post book reviews and author promos at In addition to writing, I review for We Write Romance, The Novel Blog, and Long & Short Reviews.

I will be hosting a contest/giveaway on my site in late August. I will be giving away a canvas tote with an autographed copy of Magnolia Magick, a t-shirt, and several other goodies. Also, I’m going to participate in LASR’s scavenger hunt, so be sure to check out their website/group for more details!

Publisher: Noble Romance Publishing

Genre: Contemporary, m/m, suspense


In Vegas on a week-long business trip, attorney Steve Elliot isn’t as interested in buxom strippers as his co-workers, Jake and Dylan, seem to be. Steve has other interests, and at the first opportunity, leaves the strip club for a nearby gay bar. To his surprise, Dylan follows him there, hoping for a chance to get Steve alone. After a quick battle with his conscience about dating a co-worker, Steve relents and goes back to the hotel with the younger, sexy man.

Their night of passion ends abruptly as Dylan’s past comes back to haunt him in Sin City. Will Steve and Jake be forced to pay the price for Dylan’s prior indiscretions?

Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?

What Happens in Vegas is a Naughty Nibble recently released by Noble Romance Publishing.

What is What Happens in Vegas all about?

Three lawyers in Vegas on a business trip wind up in a strip club after their meetings are finished one evening. Steve Elliot isn’t interested in the naked women but his co-workers don’t know he’s gay, so he makes excuses and leaves in search of a gay bar. When one of his co-workers follows him there and Steve discovers Dylan has been hoping to get him alone for a while, he has a decision to make. And the repercussions from his choice might be more than he can live with!

That sounds like fun. How did you come up with the idea?

I’ve had the title niggling around in my head for a long time, it just sounds fun. So I dreamed up a plot that would fit. M/M is my favorite genre right now, so naturally I went with that.

Is this your first author offering, or do you have other books the readers should know about?

I have several titles available with Phaze, Total E-Bound, Freya’s Bower as well as Noble Romance. I’ve got at least a dozen gay books or stories in anthologies, just as many hetero books and stories, three lesbian titles, and four ménage novels. Some of these I’ve co-written with my writing partner Jude Mason. All the exciting details can be found in the books section of my website!

What can we expect from you in the future, Jenna?

Jude and I have just finished the fourth book in our Untamed Hearts series about horse shifters, called Stallion’s Pride. We’re working on the next Kindred Spirits title, and a couple shorts for Phaze. I have about one release per month from now through next spring, and counting!

Thank you for joining me. Is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?

I also write for the charitable anthology line Coming Together, those details can also be found on my website. I have two audio stories available with the site A Woman’s Goodnight, which is a really fun thing. I hope readers will check it out.

Author Offerings From Belinda McBride

Title: Belle Starr

Release Date: May 12, 2009

Author: Belinda McBride

Author Website:

Publisher: Loose Id

Buy Link:

Genre: Sci Fi/Fantasy, futuristic, shape shifter, menage


Marshal Annabelle "Cowgirl" Oakley is the best law enforcement officer in Interstellar Coalition Enforcement. With her wolf Tucker at her side, Belle is clearly the best man for the job. Unfortunately, the job comes with hazards, and one of those hazards comes in the shape of tall, mysterious Armand.

Armand de le Croix is a werewolf with amnesia. He has no idea how he came to be living in Coalition space, he doesn’t know where his people are, or why his inky black hair is now snowy white. He just knows that the tall dangerous redhead is all that he wants, and he means to have her regardless of what he must do to win.

When they meet, it's magic. When they part, it's mayhem.

Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?

Thank you very much for hosting me! My latest book is Belle Starr, which is described as a paranormal space opera with a kick of the Old West. It’s now available at Loose Id.

What is Belle Starr all about?

Belle Starr is the story of Marshal Belle Oakley, a law enforcer in outer space. A random encounter with the amnesiac werewolf, Armand de le Croix, kicks off a system-wide chase when Belle suspects her one night stand of stealing her wolf companion Tucker.

That sounds like a book I want to read. How did you come up with the idea?

The story started with the first line of the book playing through my head, but the actual plot and characters were inspired by my Siberian Huskies; particularly my alpha pair, Echo and Logan. I have 6 Siberians, and watching their ever-changing yard dramas gives me a lot of material for stories!

Is this your first author offering, or do you have other books the readers should know about?

I have several books published at Changeling Press, most notably the Imperative series, the Black Planet series, and the Bad Angel trilogy. I also have a full length novel, Soul Keeper, which is available at New Concepts Publishing.

What can we expect from you in the future, Belinda?

I have a couple manuscripts in progress for Loose Id, one is a follow-up to Belle Starr. My next release is Bad Angels: Burn, which is available at Changeling Press. Over at NCP, Leather is scheduled for December. I jokingly call this book my Porn Star Fairy Tale. It’s a BDSM contemporary, which is a very unusual genre for me to cross into.

Thank you for joining me. Is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?

Scarlet Myst is about Erin aka Mysti who is a stripper/assassin. She's hired to kill Sean Uriel, who is kidnapping the daughters of upper class families.

Author Offerings From Nicole Morgan

Title: Love Knows No Boundaries

Release Date: 7-7-09

Author: Nicole Morgan

Author Website:

Publisher: Hearts on Fire Books

Genre: Romance/Romance with Mature Content

Buy Link:


Isabelle first fell in love with Sean when she was fifteen years old. Six years her senior he only saw her as a gawky teenager. Years later, at eighteen years old Isabelle decides to act on her feelings. Panicking from his attraction towards her, Sean pushes her away refusing to give into his desire.

Over a year passes and Isabelle has tried to move on. She has found the perfect boyfriend. Justin is patient, kind and a complete gentleman. Sean’s feelings for her haven’t died though and he is tired of sitting idly by while she is with another man. Driven by desire and love he does everything within his power to get her back.

Justin, the once perfect boyfriend begins to fall apart at the idea of losing Isabelle. In a moment of rage and desperation he does something horrific, effectively changing their future forever.

Will Sean’s love be enough to get them through the pain? Or will Isabelle walk away from Sean forever? And does love truly know no boundaries?

Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?

My latest book is titled Love Knows No Boundaries.

What is Love Knows No Boundaries all about?

Love Knows No Boundaries is a story about a love that forms between two people who meet when their widowed parents marry. Sean is older than Isabelle and tries to step into the shoes of her big brother. He does so rather successfully until she is older and begins to pursue him. Relentless in her pursuit he finally gives into her advances and into his own desires as well. After a night of passion Sean is overwhelmed with guilt over what he believes is taking advantage of the young and sweet Izzy. While she is an adult he can’t get past their age difference and his role as step brother. He pushes her away and into the arms of another man. A year passes and Sean is tired of his guilt and missing the only woman he’s ever loved. He goes after Izzy and vows to get her back. The other man in her life, Justin, is not ready to let her go though. Taking matters in his own hands, Justin commits an act that he is sure will bind Isabelle to him forever.

In this story, two questions remain throughout. Will Isabelle and Sean overcome their obstacles and find a way to be together? And will the acts of one man effectively ruin any chance they have at happiness?

That sounds like you've created a wonderful love story. How did you come up with the idea?

You know I’ve been asked this question before and I wish I had an answer. Sometimes I sit down to write a story with just the opening chapter in mind and wait for the story to tell itself. I wish I had a method to my madness that I could share with the readers, but unfortunately even I don’t know which way a story is going to go when I start it. I’m often just as surprised as the reader.

Is this your first author offering, or do you have other books the readers should know about?

I do have two other books currently released with Hearts on Fire Books. My debut novel, Sweet Redemption was released in March 2009 and Sweet Salvation, which is the sequel to Sweet Redemption, was released in June 2009. They both center on two former Navy SEALS who have had their own difficulties in life but find love with the right women. Of course I’ve thrown a bit of turmoil and suspense in the mix to keep it interesting.

What can we expect from you in the future, Nicole?

I have a tentative, late September release for a book titled Death Vengeance through Hearts on Fire Books. I also have a book coming out in November 2009 with Siren Bookstrand, titled Intimate Persuasions and another with Siren titled Sudden Devotion which does not have a tentative release date at this time.

Thank you for joining me. Is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?

Just that I love what I do. I love to write stories and bring the characters to life for the reader. I myself am an avid reader and know how exciting it can be when you feel like you know the characters and experience the same things they are feeling.

Author Offerings From A.P. Miller

Title: Librarians Dont Get Married

Release Date: August 17, 2009

Author: AP Miller

Author Website:

Publisher: Excessica Publishing

Genre: Menage, interracial, gay/lesbian, group sex


Miss Weiss is a librarian. She’s old fashioned, plain, wears glasses with a chain attached. She is dutiful, always knows where the good books are and everyone seems to like her. Miss Grundy is the town gossip. She’s hateful, spiteful and she spies on everyone so she always has the latest information to share in her gossip sessions. Thank goodness she has Miss Weiss to share with because Miss Weiss always agrees with her.

Miss Weiss might be a plain Jane everyone knows they can come to for cookies and advice, but she’s got a couple of secrets only a select few know about. Of course, Miss Grundy is in the dark; after all, she’d probably have a stroke if she knew the truth.

Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?

Thank you Rie for having us. It is a pleasure being here and we would like to say hello to all of our readers and thank you for your years of loyalty, it means so much to us. Without you our books would never be.

One of many actually, which is a fun story titled Librarians Dont Get Married. Ever wonder what's beneath their facade? We seem to think it's just a cover up for something deeper...(snicker) which is why we created this fun little romp.

What is Librarians Dont Get Married all about?

Well, it's a story based in a town where the head Librarian Heidi Weiss holds a secret town society where everyone loves each other and has sex with only those in the group. They are identified by a bracelet with a happy face on it. The men wear theirs on their wrists and the women wear it as an anklet bracelet. There are twists and turns in the story and the sex is said to be very hot by those who have reviewed the book. (thanks for the wonderful reviews ladies!) This is one of four books that are going to DVD in Europe.

That sounds very sexy, twisted and yummy! How did you come up with the idea?

Hmm...we thought it would be a good twist since we hadn't read any stories with a Librarian in it. Of course this is taboo considered by most God fearing people since a Librarian is a symbol of Intellect and purity. So we placed Heidi in a most compromising position and ran with it.

I know you have many other offerings on the market, tell me a little about them.

We have so many...All hallows Eve, No More Roses for Lily, Management Training, Lone Huntress series, Unpredicted Prophecy, Beyond the Looking Glass, Good Guys Deserve Bad Girls, Beyond the Looking Glass Darkly, Amelia, When Evil Rises, Book of Erotic Tales, Good Boys, Conditioning, Petting Zoo,Thriller, LeFemme Sophia, Gallows Mountain, Book of the Dead and many more coming out by 2011.

What can we expect from you in the future, AP Miller?

Great things, new stories and books in film. Stories that relate to many, some that will make you cry, make you laugh, scare the hell out of you and probably shock you.

Thank you for joining me. Is there anything else you'd like the readers to know?

Yes you can find our books at Red Rose Publishing, Excessica Publishing, Double Dragon Publishing, Noble Romance, Carnal Desires Publishing, Dark Roast Press, BDSM Books and Ravenous Romance...coming soon from XOXO Publishing.

If you want to know more about us you can find us at and at our blogs at Living Las
