Wolf Enforcers book two

bloodenforcer-2800x4200

Glenna McReynolds just wants to go home, but the strangers holding her captive say she’s one of them now—and she can never go home again.

It was just another ordinary day for Glenna Mc Reynolds…until she was violently attacked and ended up in the hospital. Now, Glenna is on a whirlwind discovery of the world of wolves, dreamwalkers, and spelltalkers—a world she never knew existed. And she is hell-bent on escape.

After nearly going wild wolf, Sam Wulfric is back and sane—mostly. The last assignment he wants is babysitting a new wolf shifter, and all the chaos that involves. Even worse, she’s one of the sexiest women he’s ever seen and she’s driving his inner wolf crazy. But when everyone from the US Government to an unknown assailant comes after Glenna, Sam’s instincts take over. Now, he’ll do anything to keep Glenna safe—even if her new found mating urge drives him over the edge.

CD Hersh and Son of the Moonless Night

Fantastic Fridays

a blog for the paranormal romance lover

SON OF A MOONLESS NIGHT_505x825It’s here! Son of the Moonless Night, a paranormal romance suspense by writing team, CD Hersh, has been released! Join me today in welcoming CD Hersh and find out more about their Turning Stone Chronicles and how they write as a team.

AUTHOR’S PERSONAL SPECIFICS:

  • Tell us a little about yourself and your book. We are a husband and wife writing team who have been married for 45 years. We met in high school, got married in college, started writing plays and dramas for our church about 18 years ago, and paranormal romance about 8 years ago. We like to travel, go to movies, and just hang out together.

The Son of the Moonless Night is the third book in The Turning Stone Chronicles series. Thrust back into the world of paranormal huntress, Deputy Coroner Katrina Romanovski must unravel a string of murders she believes are vampire attacks. When she discovers the shape shifter she’s in love with is the murderer, she must reconcile her feelings for him, examine her life of violence against paranormals, and justify deceiving him in order to bring him to justice.

This book continues Owen Jordan Riley’s story, whom you met in book two, Blood Brothers, a year after the loss of his best friend whom he thinks was killed by Rhys Temple. This book also continues with Alexi’s and Rhys’ story to become the long awaited bringers of peace to the Turning Stone Society.

  • Do you have cheerleaders supporting you as a writer? We would have to say that we have family who are cheerleaders. They are always asking when the next book of the series is coming out and what is it going to be about.
  • What are your hobbies or other interests that get you away from the stress of writing? Disneyland!
  • Give two random thoughts, quotes, or surprising tidbits about yourself, something that might surprise your readers. Hummmmmmmmmmmmm. A quote Donald likes is “Don’t take life too seriously, nobody gets out alive anyway.” Oh, Catherine cut a record when she was a teenager. She also made a recording recently at “The Grand Old Opry” at Ryman Auditorium.
  • Tell us the story behind your pen name? Our pen name came about after a lot of research to be sure it would stand out. Ultimately, we decided to just use our initials. The “C” stands for Catherine, and the “D” stands for Donald. Hersh is a shortened version of our real name that Donald always got called when he was younger when someone wanted to get a rise from him. He hated it, but enjoys it now. Catherine just said, “You never told me that before!” LOL

WRITING BACKGROUND & THOUGHTS:

  • Pantser/Plotter/or both? Tell us how you work. We are plantsers. We plot heavily but allow room for the muse and characters to lead us. Together we lay out each character’s story arc. One of the things Donald always looks for is having two plot lines, one major the other minor, but woven together. We usually have the chapters and scenes plotted by character. Catherine will often apply the hero’s journey to the story as well. Once the plotting is accomplished, Catherine sits down and fleshes out the story. Then Donald critiques each line after Catherine has it on paper. Then together we do line-by-line edits adding any missing elements before showing it to anyone.
  • Come on, dish…is there anything unusual about your writing habits? We work together and apart. Then together when doing the final version. Also, what’s said in the writing office stays in the writing office, because we can get kind of heated.
  • Do you get writer’s block and if so how do you get past it? Not really. If she’s not ready to write, Catherine gets writers avoidance and will do things like clean the toilets.

GENERAL WRITING INFORMATION:

  • Have you had many rejections? How did you deal with them? How did they push you? As C.D. Hersh we never got a rejection on the series. It was snapped up the first time out to an editor. Catherine went through all the rejections working as a solo journalist and author. You deal with rejection by just going forward. Whether or not someone likes a book is subjective. Once you realize that, and you know that you have a good grasp of the basics, it’s just a matter of trying until you succeed.
  • Do you have a writing schedule? How do you juggle writing, family, work, and life’s surprises? Not really, unless there is a contract deadline. Then Catherine gets antsy to get it done even if there are six months left. As for juggling the other stuff, Donald’s retirement has made things easier. For life’s surprises, well, that’s what a laptop is for. We finished book two, Blood Brothers, as we supported Catherine’s best friend dealing with her mother’s hospitalization and death.

Owen Todd Jordan Riley has a secret. He’s a shape shifter who has been hunting and killing his own kind. To him the only good shifter is a dead shifter. Revenge for the death of a friend motivates him, and nothing stands in his way . . . except Katrina Romanovski, the woman he is falling in love with.

Deputy coroner Katrina Romanovski has a secret, too. She hunts and kills paranormal beings like Owen. At least she did. When she rescues Owen from an attack by a werebear she is thrust back into the world she thought she’d left. Determined to find out what Owen knows about the bear, she begins a relationship meant to collect information. What she gets is something quite different-love with a man she suspects of murder. Can she reconcile his deception and murderous revenge spree and find a way to redeem him? Or will she condemn him for the same things she has done and walk away from love?

When she rescues Owen from an attack by a werebear she is thrust back into the world she thought she’d left. Determined to find out what Owen knows about the bear, she begins a relationship meant to collect information. What she gets is something quite different-love with a man she suspects of murder. Can she reconcile his deception and murderous revenge spree and find a way to redeem him? Or will she condemn him for the same things she has done and walk away from love?

 

Excerpt:

A crash in the alley stopped Katrina Romanovski mid-stride. Like the October mist swirling in off the lake, her gypsy blood stirred sending her intuition into high gear. Something unnatural was happening.

Go see what’s wrong. She heard her father’s voice as clearly as if he stood next to her.

On the heels of his words came her mother’s pragmatic warning in clipped British tones. You know what curiosity killed. Katrina pushed the ever-present warning aside. Mom never approved of Dad’s supernatural hunts and even less of his drawing her into them.

Pulling the oversized cross she always wore out from under her shirt, Kat looked around for a weapon. Please, not a vampire. I hate vampires! A piece of wood sticking out of the trashcan at the front of the alley caught her eye.

Grabbing it, she broke the end off into a sharp point. The mist-filled air filtered the light from the single bulb over one of the alley doorways. The wind swirled the loose trash around making a quiet approach difficult. Sidestepping the paper, with the stake in one hand and holding the gun she took from her purse in the other hand, she crept into the alley.

A roar echoed against the buildings, the sound nearly sending her running. That roar wasn’t a vampire. It sounded more like an animal. Kat inched closer. In the yellow pool of light from the back door of the building, a black bear, over seven feet tall, reared on its back legs and swung its paw at the man standing at the edge of the light. He crashed to the ground, shirt torn open from the slashing claws. Blood covered the fabric, and he clasped his left hand over his shoulder to stem the flow. The bear bent toward him, teeth bared in a smile. A wicked smile.

Kat aimed her gun, but before she could pull the trigger, a shot rang out. The flash of gunpowder lit the face of the injured man. The blast reverberated against the buildings. With an enraged bellow, the bear staggered backward against the wall. Shaking his head, the animal dropped to all four paws. Weaving like a drunk, he lumbered toward his attacker. The man took aim again, shooting the animal between the eyes. Animal and human collapsed on the dirty, littered pavement.

As she started to move forward, Kat’s gypsy senses crawled over her skin like angry red ants. As she slipped back into the shadows, the bear shed fur. Changing size. Then, finally, turning into a man.

Shape shifters. Her stake wasn’t any good against them, and her bullets weren’t silver. This one appeared dead anyway. Had the wounded man seen the shift? Tossing the stake aside, she paused by the shifter and quickly moved to the wounded man. Out cold. Still human.

When she touched him, his eyelids fluttered open. “Did I get it?”

“What?”

“The bear.”

Allie Quinn on Being a Writer

Whimsical Wednesdays

Please welcome guest author, Allie Quinn. to Jessica Aspen Writes. Allie not only writes erotic romance about vampires, but she also moonlights in paranormal suspense under the pen name, Allie Harrison. Today she’s sharing with us what it’s like to write erotic in the real world.

 

under the cover of moonlight by allie quinnHi! I’m Allie Quinn.  I write erotic romance. I also write as paranormal/suspense as Allie Harrison. UNDER THE COVER OF MOONLIGHT by Allie Quinn, released June 10, 2014, by Loose Id, is the second in my Moonlight Assassins series. My Moonlight Assassins are the good guys. Never mind they are also vampires, and not your run of the mill vampires, either. No, my vamps can be out in the sunlight and can eat regular food. Do not get on the bad side of my vamps!

In UTCOM, Zack McCullin travels to a small mountain town determined to stop Rachel Maxwell, who he believes has stolen his research information. What he soon discovers—besides his attraction to Rachel—is something far more deadly.

I’m careful who I tell I’m a author, even more I’m an erotic writer. A fellow high school graduate congratulated me when I told him I was an author. When he introduced me to his wife, however, whom I’d never seen before, and told her I’m a published author, she looked at me and said, “Oh, I’ll bet you write smut.”

I smiled and said, “I write award-winning novels.”

Writing has always been my stress relief. After a bad day anywhere, I can sit down, place my fingers on the keyboard, fall deep into another world, and fall in love or kill off someone I don’t like. I miss gothic stories and Stephen King is my first true hero, creating stories I couldn’t stop reading until the end. My goal is to scare you like he does, but make you fall in love, too. I never planned to write erotic romance. It kind of fell into my lap with the rejection of a fun ghost story. So here I am. Some people make fun of erotic, but I can honestly say keeping the sex fresh is very hard (no pun intended).

I don’t believe in writer’s block. I believe sometimes the words come and sometimes they don’t. I don’t believe in wasting my time since I’m only given a certain number of minutes. So if the words aren’t coming, I get up and do something else. I keep a notebook, pen and flashlight by my bed for when the words come in the middle of the night. I prefer to write with colored pens, usually purple or blue. I also think the use of blues and purples on covers go over well.

I’m usually inspired by characters I see around me. I can stand in line at WalMart, watch people and play the ‘what if’ game.

Of course I’ve had rejections. If I get feedback from them, I use it. Such is the case when my ghost story was rejected. I see a rejection as a new path I’m supposed to take, not as a road block. It’s like getting laid off. You aren’t meant to be there. You’re meant to be somewhere better. Never be afraid to try a new path and never stop looking ahead.

Under Cover of Moonlight

When Zack McCullen thinks his research program has been stolen by Rachel Maxwell, he wants nothing more than to kill her. At the very least, he wants her arrested. But something about her photo haunts him and makes his heart pound. He even dreams about her. When he finally meets her in person, he’s blindsided by his burning desire for her. As hard as he fights it, with one touch of her hand, he loses the battle.

After one passion-filled night, Zack knows she’s the soulmate destiny has chosen for him. There’s no way in hell he can allow her to be taken from him, much less arrested; he can’t live without her. Then he discovers who the true thief is, and anger gives way to terror. Terror of the thief, but more, terror that neither he, nor the passion he’s discovered with Rachel, will survive under the cover of moonlight.
