Giveaway: Cranberries and Spice Blog Hop!


I love blog hops. 🙂 Today I’m going to feature a short excerpt from my upcoming release STOLEN. The first 15K words of STOLEN will be part of the RISEN anthology. ((STOLEN will be released January 15th, 2016 as the full, stand alone book) RISEN features all sorts of zombie fiction, in all different subgenres. The book releases on December 15th and I am SO EXCITED to be a part of it.

Here are a couple teaser images I’ve made from the POV of my hero, Lucien North. STOLEN is a darkly erotic urban fantasy story with a-typical zombies, a strong, silent-type anti-hero, and a heroine who doesn’t appreciate being tied up and dragged around like chattel, no matter how sexy her kidnapper is. Riona Foley is in desperate need of some TLC, but her version of acceptable ways to express affection is a whole crap-ton different than Lucien’s. 😉 They meet in the middle eventually,  sorta, if your middle is skewed, off center, and on the dark side of love…..

And here’s the cover and blurb for the entire anthology:

Anything is possible when a scientist plays God to cure cancer, lab experiments go wrong, and amber eyed monstrosities hunt the night.

The taint of rotting flesh corrupts “happily ever after.” Between every page of a mad man’s grimoire rests the fate of the world– and some have devastating consequences.

Ancient evils latch onto your soul and bind you to madmen infected with an unending hunger. Corn fields can hold the truth or hide the beasts.
Are you fearless enough to tread the pages with the undead and misunderstood?

Six authors and a poet dare you to join them on a journey into the dark….

Jon Lee, HAVEN: “An old nightmare hunts Humankind across the Earth. Safety lies amongst the stars… in Haven.”

Rachel Evans, FIELDS OF GOLD: “Corn knows what’s up. Corn knows what’s come. And corn knows how to stay out of it.”

Patrick Hauser, HERMAN RUDOLF PAULUS, NECROMANCER: “Disgusted by a society he views as abhorrent accountant Herman decides to take revenge… by unleashing terror and the undead.”

Roxy Stone (Rachel Firasek), PROTECTING PROJECT 21: “In darkness….he waits.”

Jennifer James, STOLEN: “Riona Foley courts death, until a man who dances with madness kidnaps her and she discovers tenderness in bondage.”

Elyssa Allen, MANGLED: “Welcome to Rosenberg Castle: home of captive princesses, flesh eating minions, and a lost Prince Charming. Enjoy your stay…”

Eva X, poems INFINITY LOST and INFINITY FOUND: “John Donne gone zombie.”

    My fav kind of zombie? It would be a toss up between a Shambler and Undead.

  2. bn100 November 23, 2014 at 4:48 pm

    don’t have a fav

  3. Jessica Hale (@blaisezillah) November 23, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    i don’t have a fav either but i do like watching to see what they come up with next like with resident evil and warm bodies etc

  4. JeanMP November 23, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    Don’t have a favorite, haven’t really read a lot of zombie stories.

  5. carly November 23, 2014 at 8:34 pm

    I love them all, but the runners are the freakiest to me 🙂

  6. erinf1 November 23, 2014 at 11:35 pm

  7. Mary Preston November 24, 2014 at 3:27 am

    A shambler for sure – I reckon I could out run it.

  8. JanD November 29, 2014 at 2:11 pm

    I prefer the rotting type.

  9. Sha'Mona November 30, 2014 at 4:10 am

    I don’t like any type of zombie. They’ve given me nightmares since I was a kid and to this day I can’t watch movie with them in it. Working on getting over that though.

  10. Sherry S. November 30, 2014 at 8:25 pm

    I haven’t read many zombie books so I don’t have a favorite.

  11. Juana Esparza December 2, 2014 at 11:29 pm

    The only zombie I loved was R from Warm Bodies.

  12. Anne December 3, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    They have to be able to really move to be frightening, so shamblers would be out as a real character for me.
