#RocktoberMusicFest ♫ “Mouth” – American Werewolf In Paris Soundtrack

Yesterday’s post got me thinking about Werewolves and my Wolf Shifter novels, which of course led me to this song, because I snuck it into my book as one of the obscure references I love weaving into my tales. Plus it’s Gavin Rossdale, I shouldn’t even need an explanation. 😉

I know, I already droned on about my obsession with Gavin Rossdale in my other Bush post this month when I shared my favorite guitar song by them “Warm Machine.” But for anyone who’s ever watched and secretly loved the movie, American Werewolf in Paris, this is usually the first song that comes to mind.

The movie American Werewolf in Paris managed to be both absurdly corny and freaky as hell, which should be impossible, but they did it and found a way to twist a love story into it, as well. If you’ve never seen it, I can’t honestly say you’re missing out on anything – except that it may be considered a cult classic now. Anyway, it’s Halloween week, so what better time to broaden your horror film horizons? Enjoy!

Hearthstone Alpha (the Úlfrinn series, #1)

 a Contemporary Paranormal Romance novel

Hearthstone Alpha.final.fiona

Blurb

All Reyna Daniels wants is to secure her return home to Minneapolis. The last thing she needs is to find her world completely inundated by the magnetizing, hostile Corbyn Bruschard and his group of male-model friends.

Corbyn’s not ashamed at being everywhere, since it’s his territory, and he’s certainly not going to apologize for trying to keep Reyna safe. Especially, when she’s his mate.

With all signs pointing to an old enemy’s return, Reyna’s going to have to suck it up and face her ancient Norse heritage fast. That doesn’t mean she has to accept being mated to an Alpha who threatens all of her hard-earned independence.

Excerpt

His silvery eyes roamed her freely now, rather than trying to penetrate into her bones.

“Won’t that leave Serena and Justin alone?”

“No,” he answered, leveling her with a stubborn stare. “You’re not going to win this argument, Reyna. There is no way in hell we’re leaving anything to chance, not with those who matter most to us. Now, get over here.”

Reyna scoffed. As if!

“Please,” he added gently.

It took Reyna about ten seconds to reluctantly scoot across the bench seat, still leaving a good arms length between them, because it appeared he wasn’t going anywhere until she did. If he thought she was done with her side of their little compromising barter, though, he was in for a big surprise! She inhaled sharply, when Corbyn hooked his arm around her waist, lifted her, and set her down across his lap. Her feet faced the passenger door, her back cradled in the crook of his left arm still clutching the steering wheel.

Desire unraveled in her veins, starting in her toes and working all of the way up to the roots of her hair. Every inch of her was once again hyper-aware of every inch of him, and she fought hard to keep her composure intact.

“Do you really think distance keeps you safe, falleg?” he asked softly, brushing her ponytail out from between the back of her head and his shoulder.

Fawk…what? “Did you just call me fugly?” she snapped.

“Not even close,” he replied. “Answer the question, Reyna. I’m onto your evasion tactics.”

Well, aren’t we clever?

A Kiss To Build A Dream On

by Louis Armstrong

Give me a kiss to build a dream on,
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss.
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this:
A kiss to build a dream on.

Give me a kiss before you leave me,
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart.
Leave me one thing before we part,
A kiss to build a dream on.

When I’m alone with my fancies, I’ll be with you,
Weaving romances, making believe they’re true.

Oh, Give me your lips for just a moment,
And my imagination will make that moment live.
Give me what you alone can give,
A kiss to build a dream on!

When I’m alone with my fancies, I’ll be with you,
Weaving romances, making believe they’re true.

Oh, Give me your lips for just a moment,
And my imagination will make that moment live.
Oh, Give me what you alone can give,
A kiss to build a dream on!

I do not own any right to this song, lyrics or video. All rights remain with the artist and their respective agents. No copyright infringement intended.

In celebration of the Release of Hearthstone Alpha this week, I wanted to feature a song that makes an appearance in a rather endearing scene in the book. I tend to incorporate my favorite songs into my writing like most authors reference their favorite books, I can’t help it. Enjoy! 😉

Opportunities Galore!

Opportunities

Image source: pinterest.com

Okay, so there are only 2 opportunities, but that doesn’t sound as catchy. 😉

Many of you already know from my endless, shameless, self-promotion that I have a new Contemporary Paranormal Romance coming out on June 1st. Hearthstone Alpha is a full-length novel and is the first in my new Úlfrinn series about a unique kind of Wolf Shifter species created by Odin, himself.

If you like that kind of stuff or just want to promote supremely hot Scandinavian men who can shift into wolfies, then I have the materials link HERE for the Release Day Blitz being hosted by Goddess Fish Promotions.

My second opportunity is more of an idea in the making, so it will depend on the response on whether or not it becomes a regular thing (as I hope it will) – I want to interview your Heroes/Heroines! I know this is not a new thing by any stretch of the imagination, but I would like to have a monthly or bi-monthly character interview to help promote your books! Again, the frequency will depend on the response and I’m sure it will take some doing getting it up off the ground.

I am currently putting together an interview questionnaire for either Hero or Heroine and will leave it up to you writers on which character you’d like to see in the limelight. If you’re interested, just let me know in the comments. This will be for any romance genre and any relationship situation, M/F, M/M, F/F, Menage, etc. I am an equal opportunity interviewer. 🙂

Happy Sunday!

#TacoTuesday

Disclaimer: This post has absolutely nothing to do with food – sorry foodies!

Welcome to a new kind of blog hop, engineered by moi for anyone who wants to join in. This is for fun, creativity, mostly cuz-we-can and designed to work for both readers and writers!

Objective: Every Tuesday I will introduce a new ‘ingredient’ until we have the biggest and best tacos in town. The only things you need are your own WIPs, published works &/or favorite books you’ve read. Answer as a writer, a reader or both, it’s completely up to you. There are no rules against using a different manuscript for each week’s writer answer, but please make sure to tag them with the story’s title so your followers know which books to look out for!

Here we go…

Writers Menu

Taco Shell/Wrap: Share a moment when a supporting character played a part in keeping your protagonist held together, even if it’s in memory.

“The problem is the whole in so deep already, though,” Reyna admitted, once she’d caught her breath. “I mean, he’s everywhere! He even knows my boss, for crying aloud. There’s no place in my life where he’s not already involved.”

Serena paused and softened, giving her a sympathetic look. “You mean like me and Maddy?” she pointed out. “Do you think it was any easier for us? You’re my best friend and his sister. We all grew up together, our parents used to barbecue together. We went to the same schools, the same family outings. Even if we went out separately, the other turned up there or was friends with those who were there. Do you know how long it took for me to get up the nerve just to admit to myself how I felt about him?”

Reyna opened her mouth, then closed it. She’d never thought of it that way before, but Serena was absolutely right. Madison had already been such a huge part of every part of Serena’s life, just like Corbyn was turning out to be in Reyna’s.

“The hardest part was getting past the fear that I would lose everything I loved, everything I’d known, if we didn’t work out. You, your parents,” Serena continued. “At the very least, that nothing would ever be the same again.”

“How did you do it?” Reyna asked quietly, desperate for any kind of wisdom her friend could bestow.

“I just did,” Serena shrugged. “I knew that if I didn’t try, if I didn’t give him or myself that chance, I would regret it for the rest of my life…”

Readers Menu

Taco Shell/Wrap: Which book have you read with a memorable supporting character, and why did you like them?

itbiotc-front-coverMargo from In The Best Interest of The Child, by Felicia Denise. I loved every moment she was on the page, because her character came across with such a genuinely supportive personality. Even though Olivia hadn’t let her in all the way with her traumatic past, Margo was still there for her, without hesitation or judgment. She brought laughter, a shoulder to cry on, advice and even a good ‘shove’ in the right direction whenever Olivia needed it. I really hope we get to see more of her in the second book. (hint-hint!) 😉

This probably goes without saying…but
