Southern morning

Hi everyone. I hope you're doing well. I am. So far. Getting some #writing done today I hope, and should have an announcement soon. ;) More on that in the coming days.

For today though, I'm just dropping in to say I've got, yes, another guest slot. I'm visiting with my favorite Southern Belles over at Southern Fried Gothic today, talking about the Battle of Fort Pickens, that tiny fort that features in The Artist's Inheritance.

Tempted by Rebecca Zanetti (review)

by Rebecca Zanetti
(procured from Amazon as a freebie)  
Tempted is a short story by paranormal romance author Rebecca Zanetti, recently released as a companion to her bestselling Dark Protectors series. Here, she introduces outcast vampire Max Petrovsky who is sworn to protect a little girl from their hated enemies the Kurjans. He’s also asked to collect a grown woman, one Sarah Pringle, lately confined to an insane asylum by her family. But, she might just be a vampire mate, so what’s Max to do? He goes after her, and catches her trying to escape the hospital and the Kurjans, and end up spending the night in an abandoned forest rangers’ office.

Things go on weird from there. They break into the hospital, steal Sarah’s files and end up in court. The goal of all this? Well, I don’t want to give away too much, as this is just a short story. You’ll have to read Tempted for yourself to learn all of its secrets. I won’t spoil it for you by saying why. You’ll just have to—yep, you guessed it—read the story yourself.
However, all in all being book 2.5 of five total (so far) in the series, Tempted, is a fair introduction to Rebecca Zanetti’s popular vampire romance series so if you’d like to check it out, it’s available on Kindle at Amazon, Sony, Itunes, and at Barnes and for you Nook users. Unfortunately, as of this writing, the story's no longer free. Still, if you're curious I say give it a chance. Enjoy!

The Fairy Queen of Spencer's Butte by Jolene Dawe

The Fairy Queen of Spencer's Butte
Jolene Dawe
(author provided review copy)

What can I say about Jolene Dawe’s new book? Jolene's a bosom friend so I heard about  The Fairy Queen of Spencer’s Butte, being currently available for Kindle and paperback, and pdf from its earliest inception. And I've looked forward to reading it just as long. The book encompasses her latest collection of tales of magic and mystic wonder fueled by the landscape around Eugene, Oregon, of which she is clearly fond. But this is no mere travelogue. In these tales, she twists reality to create a stage for the mythic side of nature. Each story tells of an underground (quite literally in some cases) community of faeries, werecats, werefolk of all species, dryads and trolls making their lives among the mortal community of the area.

I enjoyed them all, but I think the standouts among the collection were “The Elk King” about a young woman who, finding herself lost in the woods, happens upon a ruffian who offers her rest, and a place to spend a long dark night. Nine months later, the woman realizes her baby is the Elk King’s son and that discovery leads to true love, and a little insanity.

“Crown her With Poppies” is a dragon tale of a different sort, a love story between two different peoples that results in war, and sorry.

The title story, “The Fairy Queen of Spencer’s Butte”, tells of a young woman who is saved after a vicious rape and tended to by the Fairy Queen and her people. From them, the woman learns what she now owes to them. And that is—well, I’m not going to tell you. You'll just have to read it to find out.

Don't let the fact that I know her, or that she's about to host me on her blog, sway you away from this title. I urge you to give it a try. :) I think fans of mythic flavored tales will enjoy it very much.

The Secret of Lighthouse Pointe by Patty G. Henderson

In Indie supernatural suspense author Patty G. Henderson’s recent title The Secret of Lighthouse Pointe, she delves into a somewhat new form, a Lesbian Gothic Romantic Suspense. She sets her heroine in the time of the War of 1812. Desperate after losing her job as a milliner, Constance Beechum considers suicide a viable alternative.

Until she receives a letter from her uncle asking her to become caretaker of a dying woman in Castine, Maine. She immediately packs what little she owns and moves to Maine. Here, she meets the Elizabeth Gerard’s strange family, Roger, Edward and Catherine Gerard. There’s something weird about all of them; the dying Elizabeth seems to be the only normal one in the bunch. And then there’s the handsome, mysterious George Kane.

Constance doesn’t know what to make of any of her new acquaintances, but she knows to tread lightly, as both Edward and Roger want nothing more than to get her into their beds. She, however, wants neither of them. More importantly, the men are waiting for their aged, infirm mother to die so they can get their hands on a great treasure, supposedly discovered by their grandfather in the early 1700s. Constance must tread lightly and do the best she can to ease Elizabeth’s final days. But what are those strange lights she’s seeing from the nearby lighthouse, who are the hooded men she’s seen in the hallway and outside, in town; and why does she find George Kane so appealing? Odd that, when she doesn’t usually go for his type.

You’ll have to read to find out!

Yes, Ms. Henderson experimented with a new form in her The Secret of Lighthouse Pointe, harkening back to the Gothics of the 60s and 70s, but her usual hallmarks are here. If you enjoyed her Brenda Strange novels, I think you will enjoy this too. I did. If you’d like to give it a try it’s available at Amazon for Kindle and Paperback, and also for Epub through

Also, while we have your attention, I interviewed Patty this week on my main blog. Don't miss the Q and A, here.


Juli D. Revezzo has written the Victorian romance novel WATCHMAKER'S HEART. Check it out at Amazon.

So, what's up with GFC? Is it dead and gone like they predicted or what? I still see some Bloggers using it--and it seems still with success? I've added some new favorite blogs myself using it lately so I just wondered. Honestly, that was part of why I moved this blog over to Wordpress. GFC's supposed to drop dead sooner or later, isn't it?
