23 Nov
omegashadowsbanner
I’m interviewing Elijah Kane today, one of the characters of gay / shifter / paranormal romance “Omega in the Shadows”. Enjoy!
Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who are you? What is your role in the story?
I’m Elijah Kane, infamous assassin and sexy as hell wolf shifter. My role is to break in that damn alpha, Rowan Gregor, and convince him he’s my mate. Problem is he’s all ‘but I’m not gay!’ Yeah. I don’t buy that for a second. His eyes are all over me, and I can’t blame him.
What is your favorite hobby?
Does killing assholes who deserve it count? I’m an assassin. What did you think my hobby would be? Macramé?
What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during this story?
For one, Rowan doesn’t give in like I planned. He’s got a lot of fight in him. Also, there may have been an issue with some hunters and one of my well laid plans going to shit, but I’m not about to take all the blame for that one. Also, the ex-from-hell shows up. I don’t want to go there. . . .
 
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
For my brother. I wish I protected him when we were kids. Things wouldn’t have turned out like this if I had.
Tell us a secret about you.
I don’t like beer. Rowan does, so I don’t say anything about it.

Character Interview Between Land and Sea

19 Oct

betweenlandandseabanner

I’m hosting a character interview today for the tour for paranormal romance “Between Land and Sea”. I’m interviewing Isabella, a woman who’s obviously been through a lot. Welcome, Isabella.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

 

For the first twenty-three years of my life, I was Isabella of the Mediterranean kingdom, granddaughter of chief elder Annabella. Each year, since turning eighteen, I was crowned Most Beautiful Mermaid—a tribute to my auburn tresses, mesmerizing green eyes, and magnificent tail. All that changed when I swam ashore one evening and met Andrew Bradley III. I fell madly in lust—I now know that wasn’t love—and gave up my tail for him. In a fit of rage, Annabella chopped off my hair, aged me thirty years, and gave me twenty extra pounds to carry. Andrew was horrified and abandoned me on the fog-drenched shores of southwest England, leaving with only a suitcase and a magic tablet.

What is your role in the story?

 

I am the protagonist of Between Land and Sea. The storyline revolves around my struggles to reinvent my human persona of Barbara Davies, a fifty-three-year-old woman who lived in her husband’s shadow. Thankfully, I have the magic tablet with online mermaid support. I don’t think I could have managed with the unimpressive résumé I was given—a Philosophy degree and a handful of volunteer positions and low-level jobs.

 

What is your favorite hobby?

 

In the kingdom, I enjoyed storytelling. Each evening, thousands of mermaids and mermen would gather to hear me spin inspiring and motivating tales. I was able to use those storytelling talents in my career counseling and corporate training positions on Earth but felt the need to do more. So, in my spare time, I wrote It’s Your Time, a self-help book for middle-aged woman trying to reinvent themselves. To unwind from all that cerebral activity, I cook and bake.

 

What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?

 

Unlike other mermaids who maintained their spectacular looks, I faced an upward battle as an overweight, middle-aged woman with few prospects for the future. While I am grateful for all the support I received from Lisa738, the Numbers mermaid assigned to my magic tablet, I had to dig deep and find those internal gifts that had not been taken away. I also had to heal my bruised heart and learn to love and trust human males.

 

If you could make one wish, what would it be?

 

If you had asked me this question when Andrew first abandoned me, I would have wished for my easy, comfortable mermaid life. The more time I spend on earth, however, the more I realize the necessity of blooming wherever I am planted. In this case, Carden—a small town just west of Toronto. Right now, my goals are motivated by anger toward my grandmother, who cruelly transformed me, and my mother, who abandoned me four days after my birth. My wish—I want to thrive as Barbara Davies and demonstrate to everyone that I can survive and thrive without my spectacular Bella looks and powers.

About The Book

BetweenLandAndSea_highResjpgTitle: Between Land and Sea

Author: Joanne Guidoccio

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 After giving up her tail for an international banker, Isabella of the Mediterranean kingdom is aged beyond recognition. The horrified banker abandons her on the fog-drenched shores of southwest England, leaving her to face a difficult human journey as a plain and practically destitute fifty-three-year-old woman.

With the help of a magic tablet and online mermaid support, Isabella evolves into the persona of Barbara Davies. Along the way, she encounters a cast of unforgettable characters, among them former mermaids, supportive and not-so-supportive women, deserving and undeserving men, and several New Agers.

Author Bio

Guidoccio 001In high school, I dabbled in poetry, but decided to wait until I had more life experiences before writing a novel. The original plan was to get a general arts degree and take a few years off to travel and write. Instead, I gave in to my practical Italian side and obtained degrees in mathematics and education.

While I experienced many satisfying moments during my teaching career, I never found the time and energy to write. In 2008, I took advantage of early retirement. Slowly, a writing practice emerged and my articles and book reviews started appearing in newspapers, magazines and online.

My debut novel, Between Land and Sea, a paranormal romance about a middle-aged mermaid, was released by Soul Mate Publishing in September 2013.

I live and write in Guelph, Ontario.

Nathan Grier’s dark fae bounty looms overhead. As he faces the very real threat of becoming a slave to the bounty’s owner, his brother Jim uses his changeling abilities more and more trying to save him. Every changeling throughout history turns evil once their powers manifest, meaning time may be running out for both of them as Jim nears True Awakening.

Fae hunter and incubus, Sasha Kelly, is prophesized to save Nathan, but while Nathan has embraced his feelings for the other man, he fears their time together will be cut short—either from his impending fate…or Jim’s.

Incubus_cover_FRONTNathan only ever wanted a normal life, but for him, life, family, and love are anything but normal.

On the other side of the Veil, dark and light fae exist outside the knowledge of most humans. Nathan Grier was born human, but his twin brother Jim is a changeling. On the run since they were children, time for both of them is running out. Turning to fae hunter Sasha Kelly for help, Nathan must soon face his growing feelings for the other man while trying to save himself and his brother from a fate worse than death.

Book Excerpt

Nathan Grier was exhausted, his body drained entirely of energy from his days spent recovering from an unfortunate shotgun blast to the chest. Sleep was a welcome friend as of late—well, some of the time. A part of Nathan feared the drooping of his eyes and what might be waiting for him in the darkness. But he needed rest. Craved it. The comfort and warmth of the bed beneath him. The quiet of a room that wasn’t in the hospital. The gentle touch of Sasha’s fingers trailing up his thigh.

Nathan sighed. His thoughts were vague, hazy. He was definitely in a bed, in a quiet room, but he wasn’t surrounded by the comfort of covers; he was lying naked on top of them, displayed for Sasha to see. Nathan knew the hand caressing up his side belonged to Sasha Kelly—of course it did. He knew the soft skin of the incubus too well after their night together to imagine it was anyone else.

It had been a week since their run-in with Gabriel, the sealgaire who had murdered Nathan’s parents—and who had turned out, in the end, to be family. Nathan hadn’t told his brother, Jim, about Gabriel being their uncle, and he hoped he never had to.

Character Interview Shadow’s Moon Tour

15 Jun

shadowsmoonbanner

I’m hosting a character interview today with one of the characters from “Shadow’s Moon”, a paranormal romance / urban fantasy by Jami Gray. Enjoy!

Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who are you? What is your role in the story?
Moi? Let’s see, basic deets: Xander Cade, Tracker for the Northwest Motoki Pack, sister to one very annoying, lawyer-y type, and the one and only squeeze to the stubborn ass, alpha, Warrick Vidis. I’m more than enough for him to handle and he claims I’ll turn him gray early. (snorting) Please. More like, he needs me to remind him there is more to life than politics, meetings, and the end of the damn world. The man needs to lighten up a bit, take a few chances, maybe learn to socialize a little.
I’m me, short, curvy, blonde with an attitude. One I have no intentions of ever changing. In my world, females who don’t know what they want, when they want it or how they want it, get steamrolled. Hell, even Raine has to watch out for Gavin. That man can be downright sneaky in getting her to do things she doesn’t want to do. As for me, well, let’s say I take notes on Gavin’s skills. You never know when they’ll come in handy for nudging my alpha on the right path. And when nudging doesn’t work, there’s always a two by four.
Jami decided to throw a metric crap ton of  game changers at my alpha, so I’m not real happy with her right now. I know that’s why she’s hiding out. Damn good thing she made sure to keep me in the picture. Warrick gets so blinded by his past and what he thinks he needs to do to protect everyone else, he fails to see the dangers circling him. I’m here to watch his back and stand beside him, not behind him. Not only is he vital to the life I intend to be come accustomed to, but he’s vital to our pack, and our people. And by that I mean the Northwest Kyn.  Of course, I’d rather hand all that stress to someone else, but he won’t walk away.  (Looks away) But if he did try to walk away, he wouldn’t be the man I love  either, damn catch-22.

What is your favorite hobby?
(Tapping nail against her lips in thought) Hobby? I love my baby—she’s sleek, fast and can make the road weep under her tires. Ducati’s make the most beautiful creatures, and mine’s the top predator, no doubt about it. (Secretive smile) Besides, Warrick tends to like sitting behind me, makes the rides so much more fun.

What is the challenge you’re trying to overcome during the story?
(Looks uncomfortable) If you ask me, it’s trying to get Warrick to realize what “partner” really means. (Frowns) According to Jami, it boils down to trust—do I trust Warrick enough to accept me, the real me, not the laughing, teasing, quirky face I give to everyone else, and can Warrick trust me enough to stand beside him, not view me as a weakness for our enemies to exploit.
If you could make one wish, what would it be?
Wishes are dangerous things, they can come back and bite you in the ass.  (Tilts head to think)

Tell us a secret about you.
I’m a closet gambler—seriously, if I can bet on something I will.

Shadow’s Moon

Shadows Moon CoverTitle: Shadow’s Moon

Author: Jami Gray

Genre: Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy

Even a wild heart can be broken…

A blonde, a brunette and a monster walk into a bar and all hell breaks loose.

It should have been the start of a bad joke, but days from a full moon Xander Cade, Tracker for the Northwest Motoki Pack, finds nothing funny about confronting an enraged Shifter in a crowded Portland nightclub filled with unsuspecting humans. The resulting carnage frays an already thin veil of secrecy shielding the supernatural Kyn community from public scrutiny, and ensures she can’t escape the one man she’s been determined to avoid, her Alpha and mate, Warrick Vidis.  Dominating, protective and compelling, Warrick threatens her individuality like no other.

As the Northwest Alpha wolf, compromise isn’t in Warrick Vidis’s vocabulary, but when his reluctant mate, Xander Cade, refuses to leave off the hunt for a killer, he has no qualms using whoever or whatever necessary to protect her or his pack. A series of unusual deaths involving lone wolves, along with anonymous threats against him and his Pack, begin to jeopardize his normal steely control. Add in Xander’s continual reluctance to fully accept their Soul bond, and the line between intellect and instinct begins to blur, leaving him wondering if one woman’s love and acceptance will be enough to save both man and wolf.

As the danger escalates, threatening not just their Pack but those closest to them, Warrick and Xander must find a way to trust each other and accept their rare bond or risk losing everything-their pack, their friends and each other.

TheUncovering smallerTitle: The Uncovering

Author: Jes Young

Genre: Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy

“Tab Bennett is normal — unusually, excessively normal. Her job as a bank teller is safe and secure, her grandfather finally let her move out of the house (at least to the cottage at the end of the driveway), and her fiancé fiercely guards her chastity, whether she wants him to or not.

It’s something of a shock, then, when Tab learns that she is the elvish queen of the fabled kingdom of the Inbetween. Also shocking is the appearance of the staggeringly confident and gorgeous elvish warrior who claims to be Tab’s true betrothed. Even amidst a steamy love triangle, Tab must tell friend from foe in an unknown world of danger, deceit, magic, and sex.

The first in the Underneath and Inbetween trilogy, The Uncovering sparkles with wit and unadulterated fun.”
