FROM ME TO YOU
November 18, 2014
I’m embarrassed! Seven months since I updated the news section of my website. Shame on me! I promise to do better in the future.
But, you know, the speed of time has changed. Really. When I was forty years old, and presumably middle-aged (on the assumption I will live until at least eighty based on family history), I can recall thinking, "This isn’t so bad. Forty years is a looong way off. Look how long it took to get through these first forty years." Hah! What the old folks don’t tell us is that the speed of time changes after forty. It’s like a climb, climb, climb, then a slick sliding board through the following years.
Anyhow, that’s my excuse for tardiness, and I’m sticking to it.
And isn’t it nice that I’ve come back at this perfect time of the year? I love the Christmas season, especially those weeks leading up to the special day. In fact, I’ve promised my grandson Max that we will put up a tree the day after Thanksgiving.
Speaking of the holidays, which means you must start thinking about gifts to buy, stop right there. If you haven’t already signed up for my mailing list, do so now. In the newsletter to be sent out at the end of November, there will be a bonanza of gifts offered, and they’ll arrive in time for gift giving. Everything from audio books to St. Jude medals to signed trade size Christmas novels to Viking mementoes.

|My latest Deadly Angels book, the fifth, VAMPIRE IN PARADISE, was just released. Reviews on this book have been fabulous. I think you’ll like it. In this book, Dr. Sigurd Sigurdsson, a Viking vampire angel, gets his comeupance by being transferred from his presitigous job at Johns Hopkins to serve as a physician on a tropical island where a porno convention is being held. While there, Dr. Sig meets every kind of weirdo in the world, not to mention the evil Lucipires, demon vampires, who have been lured by the sin scent. But then he meets the beautiful Marisa Lopez who is desperate to earn money to save her dying daughter’s life. Smiles and laughter guaranteed with this one!|
And don’t forget CHRISTMAS IN TRANSYLVANIA, my new novella which has been out for a few weeks now. Love that cover. All the Sigurdsson brothers are back at the rundown castle in Transylvania, Pennsylvania where they’ve been talked into a traditional Christmas celebration. Santas with fangs. Fake-O blood in the egg nog. A twenty-foot tree chopped down with battle-axes that won’t fit through the door. Mistletoe hanging from the cobwebs. Into this chaos comes an abused waitress from the local diner whom vangel Karl Mortensen has rescued. A human and a vangel? No way! But she thinks Karl’s fangs are sexy. Tears and laughter with this one, too!
A print edition of this book will be available on Dec. 9. Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Powell’s | Books-a-Million | IndieBound
Here’s something exciting. All of my Deadly Angels books are being made into audio books by Tantor, and the first four which have been completed have the nicest covers, even better than the print ones. Check these out. I have never been a big audio book person, but I have to admit I am really impressed. Not only with the packaging, but the narrator of this series, Erin Bennett, does a wonderful job of portraying all the different voices in my world of Viking vampire angels. I was afraid my Viking would come off sounding hokey, instead of manly, but, no, they are perfect. You can check out samples on the links below. See if you don’t agree with me. And, hey, that bonanza of gifts I mentioned…there will be some audio books offered, too.
And here’s a time critical offer. Belle Bridge Books is offering three of my Christmas novels for only $1.99 each at Amazon, but the offer ends on Nov.28. SANTA VIKING, A DIXIE CHRISTMAS and ’TWAS THE NIGHT.
Kindle | B&N Nook | Kobo | iBooks
|A three-book bundle VIKINGS AND VAMPIRES is also being offered by Avon for only $2.99, for a limited time only. These are the first three books in three different series, THE RELUCTANT VIKING (Viking Series I), THE LAST VIKING (Viking Series II), and KISS OF PRIDE (Deadly Angels) If you like the first books, we hope you’ll want to try others in the series.|
And, hey, check out this cover for my sixth Deadly Angels book, EVEN VAMPIRES GET THE BLUES, which comes out next August. This is Harek’s story, and this cover portrays him perfectly. Harek is the vangel who is a computer geek, but more sophisticated than his brothers. At one point in his story, his heroine says that Christian Grey has nothing on him.
I’ve mentioned it before and it bears repeating…I love hearing from readers. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your telling me how you feel about my books and how they affect you personally.
