Thirteen Nights Blurb in Progress

Annie’s always been different. An empathic Amazon, she hides her emotional anomaly beneath her legendary fighting skills. To avoid passing on her genetic disorder, she’s always avoided the Thirteen Nights Ritual—the annual breeding rite among the warrior races of the Greek Pantheon. Only months away from 30, she is now duty-bound to participate. When she meets Tai, a half-human warrior who revs her up beyond legal limits and nurtures the gentleness she’s had to keep secret, thirteen nights of pleasure don’t seem nearly enough.

As a half human, Tai has survived by being faster, more lethal, and a whole lot smarter than his brethren. While the male warriors accept him for his achievements, the Amazons have never given him a second look. Until he meets Annie, whose smile is warm and real and whose body shudders with desire—for him. Determined to have her, he hacks into the Thirteen Nights database and rearranges the pairings to make Annie his breeding partner. Together, their strength and tenderness combust into pure love.

But Tai’s actions are forbidden under Amazon law, subject to a death. To stay together and alive, they must take on the Greek Pantheon and win.

Divine Temptation:  Series Description

The ancient gods live hidden among us. Their powers are waning, stripped away by modern life. To survive, the pantheons shun the mortal world.  Rebels, called game-changers, challenge the rules and join with humans.  Passion, they’ve discovered, creates its own kind of magic.  And they want more.

Science in Writing: Meradeth’s Houston’s Chemistry of Fate Blog Tour

horizontal blog tour bannerI’m proud to be hosting my Triberr buddy Meradeth Houston today as part of her Chemistry of Fate Blog Tour.  For my fellow geeks and sci fi fans, Meradeth is a writer and a scientist and I am thrilled she penned a wonderful piece on science in writing. Take it away Meradeth.

Science in Writing

Thanks so much for hosting me! I thought I’d talk a little bit about using science in writing. Not scientific writing (trust me, that’s way too dry!), but using bits of science in coming up with a story. Not just science fiction either, but any kind of fiction that uses some kind of scientific reference. I regularly do this, and my newest release, The Chemistry of Fate, is no exception J.

Okay, so why this topic? Well, mainly because by day, I am a scientist. Technically I’m a molecular anthropologist, but mostly I just tell people I sequence dead people’s DNA. Usually really, really dead people from thousands of years ago. So, I’ve spent a lot of time learning about anthropology, history, chemistry, biology, and a whole lot of other –ologies that I won’t bore you with. To say I like science would be a bit of an understatement.

Anyhow, with this as my day-job, it’s hard for it to not get added into my writing. Like in The Chemistry of Fate, Tom and Ari meet in his chemistry class and get to know one another studying. Tom also works in a lab that is a lot like the lab I worked before I moved to teach in Montana. I try to keep the details to a minimum so I don’t bore the daylights out of everyone, but a few little ones are there to keep it real.

The only real problem with being a scientist in my “normal” life is that I do admittedly have a lower, let’s say, tolerance for some kinds of science-y mistakes in books and movies. While I’m not about to say everyone should be perfect, but some blatant errors make me cringe. Generally, my rule of thumb when referencing a topic I’m not an expert in is to keep the handling of it general. For example, if you’ve never worked in a lab and haven’t read a ton about it, it’s probably better not to try and describe the sounds the machines make (I Am Legend does this and my co-workers had an absolute field day making fun of it). While little details can really make a scene come to life, wrong details don’t help!

Of course, other than reading, reaching out to someone who does know a lot about a certain subject you want to incorporate can really help. A polite and quick email to a researcher in any field usually sparks more interest than irritation. I know that when I started using lasers in one of my novels, I asked my physicist-in-residence (hubby) all about them, and that was totally helpful! That being said, does anyone have any anthropology or genetics questions?

The Chemistry of Fate 333x500Book Blurb:
“They are everywhere, can be anyone, and are always the last person you’d expect.” When Tom stumbles across his grandfather’s journal, he’s convinced the old man was crazier than he thought. The book contains references to beings called the Sary, immortals who are assigned to save humans on the verge of suicide. They certainly aren’t allowed to fall in love with mortals. Which the journal claims Tom’s grandfather did, resulting in his expulsion from the Sary. As strange as the journal seems, Tom can’t get the stories out of his head; especially when he finds the photo of his grandfather’s wings.

Tom’s only distraction is Ari, the girl he studies with for their chemistry class.

Ari has one goal when she arrives in town: see how much Tom knows about the Sary and neutralize the situation. This isn’t a normal job, but protecting the secrecy of the Sary is vital. If Tom is a threat to exposing the Sary to the public, fate has a way of taking care of the situation, usually ending with the mortal’s death. While Ari spends time with Tom, he becomes more than just an assignment, but how far can a relationship go when she can’t tell him who she really is? When she finds out just how much Tom actually knows about the Sary, Ari is forced to choose between her wings, and her heart.

THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE is a companion to COLORS LIKE MEMORIES and is set before the latter takes place. It is geared toward an upper YA, or New Adult audience.

About Me
Meradeth’s never been a big fan of talking about herself, but if you really want to know, here are some random tidbits about her:MeradethHouston

  • She’s a Northern California girl, but now lives and teaches anthropology in Montana.
  • When she’s not writing, she’s sequencing dead people’s DNA. For fun!
  • She’s been writing since she was 11 years old. It’s her hobby, her passion, and she’s so happy to get to share her work!
  • If she could have a super-power, it would totally be flying. Which is a little strange, because she’s terrified of heights.

The Next Big Thing

Kasia James, one of my favorite writers and bloggers, tagged me for the next big thing, a tag-you’re-it game among writers on the web.  copy-firesofjustice_msr.jpgI’d love to retag Kasia, whose lovely book, The Artemis Effect, offers a hopeful post apocalyptic quest for survival following a natural disaster.  As an optimist by nature, I appreciate a book that reinforces my long term hopes for humanity. That also explains my love of Star Trek but that’s for another blog.

In addition to Kasia’s wonderful book, I’ve got a host of crit partners whose works I have no doubts what so ever you will all enjoy.  Here goes in alphabetical order:

  • Sarah Cass, Masked Hearts. I was lucky enough to critique this poignant, deep and wonderful book. Historical romance fans, this one’s for you.
  • Tonya Cannariato, Dust to Blood. Smart, fun, and thought provoking book mixes history, mythology and fantasy. Unique  mixing of genres and very, very cool.
  • Fiona Druce, Ace’s Wild. Want to fall off the couch laughing, get sassed by the heroine and get your happy ending. Go no further.
  • Jennifer James, Hunger Embraced.   Hold onto your hat for this fast paced, funny, and very smexy paranormal romance. The heroine is a succubus, the hero a vampire, need I say more.
  • Ellie Heller, A Matter of Fate. Enter a creative, new paranormal world, full of imagination, romance and one sexy hero. ~sigh~
  • Milly Taiden, Wolf Protector. This sexy paranormal suspense is just the thing to spice up your night or your day, or whenever you need it.

Now, I get to answer several questions about my current book.

What is the title of your book? Fires of Justice

Where did the idea for the book come from? A curiosity to merge western myth of witches and shifters with eastern philosophy centered on the elements and energy.

What genre does your book fall under? Paranormal romance

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Scarlett Johannsen and Jeremy Renner because I loved their chemistry in The Avengers.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?  Forced to mate to undertake a task required by the guardians, a witch and shifter must overcome their past to cleanse the magic in the world and learn to love again.

Who published your book?  Ellora’s Cave.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? Its a novella, but I write in bits, so probably five months.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?  It’s part of a series by Ellora’s Cave called Hex Appeal. Most of the books in that series have similar elements.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?  My favorite character is the guardian, Argenta, who forces our couple to work together. When she pops in, she steals the scene. Below is her description.

The unsmoked cheroot always dangling from her mouth, the white flannel nightgown that hovered midcalf to make sure everyone got a good look at those muddied combat boots, laces untied. Disheveled silver hair stuck out in odd clumps around her head, creating a wild halo effect around the unending wrinkles that crisscrossed her face. She could choose any avatar in the universe and she opted for defiant old prune.


Alpha Males on the Internet: The blog hop

Welcome to the Alpha Male Blog Hop. Starting today and ending on Oct 22nd, over 200 Authors and Bloggers will share their favorite things about those sexy men we know and love.

What makes an alpha male so compelling? Why can’t we get enough of them?  Here’s my list of must haves in an alpha.

  • A good alpha is damaged but revived by love.
  • Powerful and driven by adrenaline.
  • He embraces risk but not foolhardiness.
  • A hunter, once he  catches the scent of his woman, he puts down his stake, declares ownership and never lets go.
  • Supremely confident, he reveres and respects the power of his woman, wanting her to be all she can be.
  • Fierce and gentle, in bed and out.

That’s how I like to read him… favorites include John Matthew in J.R. Ward’s Brotherhood of the Black Dagger, Bones in Jeaniene Frost’s Kat and Bones series and Kane Tyler and Seth Lawrence  in Lora Leigh’s Breed Series…and that’s how I like to write him. Cullen McMahan, the shifter in my paranormal romance Fires of Justice is all that and a bag of chips.

On my blog, one lucky commenter will win one ecopy of my book Fires of Justice.  I’m not going to ask you to tell me your favorite alpha.  Instead, I want to know what characteristics in the heroine bring out the best in an alpha.  Here’s my take–bravery and/or fearlessness.  Alpha’s may be protective, but they respect courage and respond to women who give as good as they get.  Note all my favorite males have seriously kickass ladies. What do you think?  Don’t forget to leave your e-mail.

Block Hop Swag Prize

Fires of Justice Book Blurb

Always read the fine print when swearing an eternal oath to gods and guardians…

Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.

Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.

Nurturing creativity: Lets share some ideas

I credit my decision to commit myself to writing to The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron.  When my creativity takes a nose dive (guess where it is now) that’s the first place I return to for a jumpstart.  She recommends two tools to unleash creative potential–morning pages and artist dates.

Morning pages are a process of writing three pages daily by hand on just anything that comes out. It helps you work through all your stuff out and just primes the pump before you dive into the rest of your day. Through those pages, my inner need to write fiction (I write non-fiction in my day job) surfaced with a vengeance and here I am.

I struggled over the artist’s date.  Once a week you are supposed to go on a date by yourself and do something whimsical, silly, fun or just escapist to fill the creative well and keep those artistic muscles in shape. Truth is, my life’s so packed with responsibilities and deadlines that when I carve some time out, I don’t quite know what to do with it.  I struggle to rediscover my ability to play like a child.  Over time, I’ve find several me-dates that help refresh my sense of joy and wonder, all fodder for the muse.  Here are a few of things I dreamed up.

  1. Visit used children’s book stores: I love to page through the old books full of illustrations and drawings we lack from the adult fare. (I probably should get more into Manga and anime.)
  2. Pull out a sketch pad, colored pencils and a copy of cartoon drawing for dummies. I had a blast drawing clowns and animals.
  3. Bake an elaborate dessert–something that’s as pretty to look at as it is to eat, drawing out those design instincts when putting the dish together.
  4. Lie down on the grass and just be.

How do you do it? What do you do to keep you’re creativity juiced? I’d love to hear your ideas.

Nurturing your inner fantasy writer: Geeking out with Magi Quest

What did I do on my summer vacation?

I ascended to Master Magi in MagiQuest.  What a head rush, flicking a wand to unlock a chest full of gold and jewels;

animate a suite of armor;

duel dragons and goblin kings with ice and lightning; 

and rescue a princess.  I would have much preferred a prince but at least I got some nifty powers out of the deal so I can’t complain.

Why am I sharing this?  Because playing fantasy heroine in a 3D game created in the minds and stories of others nurtures my inner geek and fans the flames of my creativity. (How many cliches can I use?)

Creativity needs feeding.

Play is an integral part of its diet.

So I play.

What do you to do to stoke your inner (or outer) fantasy writer?

Playing Catch-up (coming soon on

Wow. Where did the summer go?  I blinked and missed it.

Progeny is now back at school and after school and weekend activities begin in earnest this week. With my new routine in place, I can reinvigorate things that inadvertently got lost in the summer whirlwind.  That means blogging.  To commit myself to this, I am detailing what I will do and when I will do it over the next few weeks. I’m  also planning activities around my book release, but for the next few weeks, here’s my cyber life.

Wednesday, September 5 I’m guest blogging at Larissa Reinhart’s blog, The ExPat Returneth discussing how traveling abroad sparks the creative impulse and helps us to live in our own skin.  She released her debut mystery. Check it out when you get a chance. Drop by if you get the chance.

Thursday, September 6,  Blog post:  Nurturing your inner fantasy writer.  Results of some summer fun.

Sunday, September 9, I will return to Six Sentence Sunday with snippets from  my debut, Fires of Justice which releases October 17 from Elloras Cave.  I am pleased to announce that it won second place in the Passionate Ink Stroke of Midnight Contest novella category.

Monday, September 10, I am doing a wellness cleanse for 21 days. That’s no alcohol, no caffeine, no sugar, no gluten, and all vegan.  I will share my experience of giving it all up if I manage to keep my sanity in the process.

Tuesday, September 11, Blog post: Reader’s Appreciation Award from Kasia James.  Her sci fi novel, complete with three powerful heroines, just released. Worth a look!

Friday, September 14, Blog post:  Child in Flight

Sunday, September 16, the Indulgent Blog Hop starts. Join me as I tour the sites of many other fab writers revealing their most indulgent books.  I’ll also do Six Sentence Sunday.

Hope to see ya in cyberspace!

World building: How do you play?

Have you seen the newest Monopoly game, the electronic banking edition, where players swipe their debit cards to pay for property, taxes, etc…   What did you think?

My gut reaction—Yikes, playing with credit card look-alikes, how can that be good for raising kids?  The rational me reaction—No  surprise. Play mirrors life.  Hard to imagine that our grandchildren will even remember money.  Instead of buying Boardwalk with the roll of a square, plastic die, children playing Monopoly of the future may take a holographic site tour of Martian biodomes and have to calculate Martian-Earth exchange rates to create their intergalactic real estate empire.

And what about sex?  (Where are you going with this Sabrina, you ask.).  Toys depend upon and help shape our sense of touch (e.g. teddy bears, scrabble letters, monopoly pieces, baseballs etc…). They involve the hands and body by definition and develop our sensuality and sense of play.  So if play all happens through a remote, will sex in the future need one as well? Actually, if you look at current game control design, yeah, over there, hmmmm.  And then there’s the joy stick.  Anyhoo, I’ve digressed enough.

Children’s toys and games don’t often find their way into grown up entertainment. When they do show up, they’re not really about having fun.  In Star Next Generation Unification II, we meet a 24th century toy—Vulcan language dice, used by the Romulan Unificationists to teach their children Vulcan. Keeping the unification dream alive, toys are a political statement.  And these were Spock’s toys as a child which explains an awful lot. I adore Spock and the Vulcans, but let’s face it, they’re not a hell of a lot of fun.  Toys will tell.

Designing toys and play is fun part of world building even if they don’t actually show up in our final drafts.  I’ve found when I get stuck with a character, delving into their childhood–how they were parented, how they played, the toys they used—can breathe life into their personality and quirks and drives.

So how about you, any examples of other worldly toys you’d love to get your hands on or toys of the future you know are coming down the pipeline?   You are invited to play along.

Alien Anatomy, Where is it?

Riddle me this. Why do almost all humanoid species and paranormal supernaturals sport the same sexual equipment and it works just like ours?  Their ears may be cupped, their blood silver, and two hearts beat in their belly, they buzz or glow in the happy moments or  have different erogenous zones but the sexual apparatus is non-negotiable.  Anatomy cannot impede true love.

It makes it easier to get it on with an Alien dude or dudette, but we’re more imaginative than that.  Invention is a human specialty.

Lets look at this logically? Vampire traditionally are dead, they don’t have kids so why does their equipment still work? What are the men ejaculating anyway?  Live sperm from the walking dead?  Dead sperm, now that’s a cold shower if there ever was one.  Yuck.  There are ways around this, of course.  We can make them a new, living species, ignore it because its fantasy, or innovate with it. In Morgan Hawke’s House of Shadows, our vampire hero Rick shoots blood. Messy but so very vampire.

Seems to me, playing with alternative genitalia can really spice up a paranormal, sci fi or any other story for that matter. Just because.

There are a few fun examples out there.  In another world created by Morgan Hawke’s Imperial Stars Series, skeldhi males have two, one for the front and back door. Aah creativity.

Laurell K. Hamilton’s Merry Gentry Series gave us  Sholto, King of the Slaugh, a hybrid, whose extra bits and bobs stimulate multiple parts. So you have the physical pleasure of a ménage but the emotional depth of a single partner.  That’s what I’m talking about.

These worlds don’t just push at the edges of the box, they obliterate it and rebuild.  (Hamilton goes well beyond anatomy but you’ll have to read it yourself).

How do we explore the depth of who we are, if don’t hack away at our barriers, including the anatomical ones?

Any favorite alien body parts out there? Examples of other books that don’t let human anatomy get in the way of a good story?

Overlooked but Not Undervalued: Reflections on Being a Kick-ass Babe (and those who missed the first list)

The A to Z Challenge has ended for the year, reflections on the experience offered, and now it’s time for take a microscope to what it means to be a kick-ass babe in the 21st century.

I chose sci fi and fantasy because this genre has put swords and spells in the hands of women warriors as a right on a regular basis longer and more thoughtfully than almost any other.  Sci fi and fantasy bend rules, kick ass women bend rules. Its an easy fit.

I am going to put myself out there and say women have been accepting the male definition of kick-ass for too long and its time to take it back, which I’ve hoped you’ve noticed I’ve been trying to do.

Kick-ass is not just fighting techniques or skills or destructive potential or the ability to wear an iron bikini or leather cat suite. Although it would be nice.  Sure Trinity, Ripley, Lara Croft are fun and we want to be them, or at least be able hit  (and dress) like them.  When Velma Dinkley wins the day, its more likely to be a day like ours. `Geeky girls are worthy.

Kick ass is so many other things. The willingness to fight against the odds for something that matters (Charlotte), being the brains of the group (Hermione), social IQ (yes indeedy), compassion (what Xena learned from Gabrielle), loyalty to friends, leadership, nurturing, working in teams, skills women have in abundance. (If you want the research, I can get it for you.) And most importantly, kick-ass is the power to make choices even when the universe is trying to stop you at ever turn.

Kathryn Janeway turned a ship of battling enemies into a family, something I don’t think Kirk or Picard could have done nearly so well.

And a woman should not have to give up the things that matter (one of the reasons Zoe Washburne was so special, she kept her marriage together in the middle of chaos and the woman could shoot)–take that mommy wars.

So, my big audacious goal is to take what I am learning and create the most kick-ass woman ever. It started here. I’ll keep you posted. But first an expression of sincere gratitude to those bloggers out there who  have been regularly sharing additional women you like that I had forgotten to put down during the challenge.
