My Chat with Endural… and Eöl and Askandar? o_O

Hello and welcome!

Once again the Elves do whatever they want, they show up and hijack my blog… and I LOVE IT 😀

Read on and see what happened earlier…

I look at my watch to see if I had messed up the time of the meeting, but no, everything was as it should be. Except, my guest isn’t coming like he said he would, or he is very late. Considering who it is and the beliefs of his people, I find this rather shocking. I also have to wonder if King Askandar will allow him to get away with what he has done? That, I can’t see happening.

Sure enough, about the time I decide that nothing is going to happen, I hear a knock at the door. A second one follows immediately after the first, just before I hear the sound of Eöl’s voice and … giggles? From Eöl? Can’t be… I open the door to reveal two Elves sporting grins the size of Canada. This undoubtedly means they have been up to no good.

We come bearing gifts, Eöl snickered, as he led the way into the room.

Sure enough, there is a long cylindrical package made up by a blanket is being carried into the room by Eöl and Askandar. Now what are those two up too? I can hear the muffled sounds of someone trying to talk from within the confines of the material, but I can’t make out the words. I can also tell that whoever is rolled into the center is trying to worm his way free from his bindings.

Please tell me you haven’t hogtied my guest, I tsk.

No problem, Askandar chuckled, We can keep a secret.

I thought Ancient Elves were more serious than this, I gasp at Askandar’s flippant remark.

Askandar and Eöl exchange a look of amusement, and then burst out laughing. Unfortunately for whoever is in the blanket, they lose their grip on him and he hits the floor with a thump.

A moment later, I see Endural roll out of the bedroll, as he begins to brake free from his bonds. As he rips the duct tape from over his mouth, I wince. Even as I grin, I can’t help but admire the view, he is one hot Elf.

While I check out the Elves in front of me, Endural takes a moment to look around to check on where he has been taken. It doesn’t take him long to realize that he is no longer in the Elven Empire. His first words are pretty standard, for a man that has been Elfnapped. Where are we and who do we have the pleasure of meeting? Is she a part of your asinine antics, or another innocent bystander that you two decided to involve?

Endural, Askandar grinned, as he ignored his brother’s mood, I would like to introduce you to Lady Eniko.

I stifle a sigh, as I smile and hold out my hand, Welcome to my studio, Endural.

The pleasure of meeting you goes beyond my powers to express, Endural immediately turns on the charm, as he bows and brings my hand to his lips.

Please, sit down and talk with me, I invite.

What would you like to talk about? Endural wonders. The Eagle Claw wannabee twins standing there, kidnapped me from my work and brought me to you. I have to admit, I am a little lost.

Well, you did agree to do a small interview, as I remember it, I remind him.

Not like this though, Endural waves at the materials they had used to truss him up with.

Granted, I agree, Their methods are rather unorthodox.

As to that, perhaps I can help you a little, I offer. I am not exactly sure how, but I have to admit, I feel a little sorry for the frazzled Elf before me. He has a long time to wait for his Life Mate to grow up. I look at Eöl and can’t help but begin by taking him to task over his comment.

I don’t remember Gabriel and Eden trying very had to keep Endiku away from Ennacas during her formative years, but I rather wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that he is your daughter’s future Life Mate? Are you trying to be difficult?

Probably, Eöl admitted unrepentantly.

I thought so, I smirk. Come with me Endural, I know how to fix their little red wagons.

You would do something like that? All three men chorus together.

I smile smugly and nod, first at Askandar and Eöl, and then at Endural. Askandar and Eöl look at me in disbelief and then Endural, who is wearing the most awestruck look I have ever seen on a man’s face. He tosses a wide smile at the two in front of him as he walks up to me and offers me his arm to escort me out of the room. It would have been perfect, if he wouldn’t have looked back at them and stuck out his tongue.

I didn’t say anything, but I got the impression this was going to be fun.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We did have a good chat with Endural, lots of laughter too.

SpiritoftheLight-cover-lr

Endural hails from Spirit of the Light, book 2 in the ONE EMPIRE series by M. A. Abraham releasing on January 7, 2019.

The main objective of the quest has been achieved, now the Fates had set the chosen Elves on the second part of the task. Now, it is time to face the journey back home and they are to bring the Kings of this long forgotten part of the Empire to meet with the others at the Counsel of Kings table.

There are hidden dangers to face, things which only the Elves they have found encased in the castle at the far end of the Empire know how to break through. To get home, it will take the combined talents of the Ancients, as well as those of the new generation to get past.

Old Kingdoms will be brought back from the brink of extinction, while Elves from different times and cultures find Life Mates and face the challenges it takes to return to where it all began. In the meantime, those in the established parts of the Elven Empire gather, to celebrate their time of Light and Life.

I love this cover so much, isn’t it gorgeous? Cora Graphics does amazing work.

Read Chapter 1 here.

I am so excited for you to read it, I loved it. Add it to your TBR list on Goodreads!

one of my fave parts: “As they moved apart, S’Larea spoke, even as her eyes blazed white, “The future shines bright, for the Empire has been joined. The past becomes the present. The lands are united. Peace reigns. Our peoples smile. It is truly a time of celebration. Our children know the way of it, for they are our guides and the spirits of the light.”

My review: 5 stars
A fun story where the readers joins back with the group of young Elves selected by the Fates on the journey that started in “Hidden Kingdoms”, and continues in this one. It was intense to say the least, battles, wins and losses, some good news and there are the signature shenanigans too that will bring on a chuckle or ten. I can’t wait for the next instalment.

Buy Links Smashwords (only this so far, but check the author’s website for other sites, they will be added as they come available)

Surprise visit… Elven children invade

Hello and welcome!

My friends say that is never dull around me 😀 read on and see who is… or rather are… my newest unexpected visitors.

As I walk into my chat room I see several Elven children spread over the furniture and none of them look happy. What is this about? I can barely wait to find out what has happened?

Why so glum? I asked.

They left us behind, Valendil complained, and the other little Elves nodded then sighed.

Why? I wasn’t following the conversation and needed more input.

They think we are babies, Quillian sniffed.

I stifle a smile when she says that, they are babies, or close enough. I can’t let them think I agree with their statement though. That is horrible! I exclaim. I know, bad.

On the other hand, they were doing boring things where they were going, so I guess we shouldn’t complain too much, Andris stated.

They were doing Tratchar things, that is not boring, Marla sniffed, as she smacked Andris on the back of the head with her open hand.

Do that once more and you will be sorry, Andris warned.

Marla stuck her tongue out at Andris and dared him to follow through with his threat, You can try to tackle me, but it wouldn’t be a good idea.

I am not so sure I should let this get out of hand, after all, I don’t want there to be problems with my landlord, or their parents. Calm down, I am sure things are not as bad as you think.

You weren’t left twiddling your thumbs in the background while your elders got to go partying, Piliam sighed.

True, but I am not whimpering like tiny tots now. I engage my mouth before putting my mind into gear… oops.

A dozen sets of Elven eyes focus in on me and I can feel my eyes grow large. I am in deep trouble now. That wasn’t meant the way it sounded. I try to backpedal.

What do you think? Valendil asked the rest of the family members.

She is a dead honorary Elf, Uriel answered.

Sadly the others nod in agreement. Even worse, I think they can outrun me. How am I going to get out of this mess? I look to the side and there is a bag of candy left over from Halloween, will it work? Anything is worth a try, Anyone interested in some suckers?

I can see them wavering, even as they exchange glances. I just might stand a chance. I pick up the bag and hold it out for them to make their choices.

Lemon, cherry and orange, Quillian notes, I like those flavors.

Any blueberry or watermelon? Andris asks.

Not that I can see, Valendil answers.

Uriel sniffs as he comments, She probably already ate them, you know how the grown ups swipe all the candy around this time of the year. They think because we are children we won’t know the difference.

Hey, I speak in defense of myself, So not true. I never touched any of them, blame it on someone else.

With a sucker in their mouths and more in each hand, they all refocus their attentions onto me again… this can’t be good.

Who are you trying to shift the blame onto? Valendil asks.

Well… you know… Mary Ann was here on the weekend before Halloween, I point out.

Twelve sets of Elven eyes narrow in thought as they eat the candy. Did they buy my suggestion? Am I going to get away with this? I have to admit, they are touchier than their parents ever were. They take a couple of slow steps forward and smile, my mind bursts into action and it is thinking only one thing… run.

When I get my hands on you MA… you are going to be so dead!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the visit of the children from the Elven Empire. They are little devils I tell you, but oh so cute.

hiddenkingdoms_medium

You can visit with them in Hidden Kingdoms, book 1 in the One Empire Series, released November 6, 2018 from M. A. Abraham.

Add it to your TBR list on Goodreads! Sign up to Ms. Abraham’s blog and follow her on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.

Here is an excerpt … enjoy!

Everyone turned to see that all twelve of the toddlers had armed themselves with every weapon they could find, as well as had dressed the part.

“You are not coming,” Eden stated bluntly. “You are staying here with your Aunt Serenity and Tamarak. They will need you to guard our homes in our absence.”

Twelve sets of silver blue eyes filled with tears as they locked on Eden, even as their chins rose and their lips tightened in determination. They were not about to be left behind. This was a family matter, and they didn’t care if they were only five and six years old. They knew how to hold a sword as well as anyone.

“Tell me I am not seeing tears or receiving signals of an upcoming mutiny,” Gabriel stated, as he met the stares of his children and Grandchildren. “An Elven Warrior does not second guess an order. Need I say more?”

“No sir,” the twelve members of the various Eagle Claw families chorused. They might question their mother’s right to take command, but never Gabriel’s. He was the High Lord General and everyone looked up to him, even the Emperor Lothrariel.

To soften the blow of what was happening for the children, Serenity announced that they would be making chocolate fudge. She then stated that there were no battles happening where they parents were going. They were just headed to see to the health of an ailing tree.

This made a big difference to the younger Eagle Claw family members. It was one thing to ride into battle to guard the back of the High Lord General. It was another to tend to the well being of a tree, to them that was boring.

Now you understand why they were so frustrated LOL

Book world adventures – Autumn 2018 edition

Hello and welcome!

As I posted about these in September and October, I attended two books signings this fall. It will be a long post but bear with me, it will be worth it.

In September there was Ignite Your Soul Author Event in London, ON Canada.

banner.jpg

Love their slogan: Real books. Real People. Real community. Come ignite your soul with us!

I was a PA for the day for M. A. Abraham but also got to mingle with the other authors, bloggers and readers. Here is my haul.

books bought
swag collected

This year it was the Alzheimer Society of London and Middlesex who was the recipient of the silent auctions proceeds. The authors, bloggers donated some great prizes to bid on. I bid on two and won one, which is not too bad.

After the signing, the VIP guests attended the Autumn Harvest Dinner After Party where the buffet dinner was delicious, there was dancing with DJ entertainment and photo booth to goof around in, I got to use the spanking paddle on a few friends LOL the night ended with tears rolling down my face and holding my stomach from so much laughter. Yeah I am looking at you Tricia and Angie … I am still waiting for the demonstration on how to eat the tiramisu properly 😛

All in all it was a good event and we had a good time, kudos to authors
Crystal St. Clair & Erin Cristofoli and their awesome team of volunteers, looking forward to next signing happening in 2020. Check out the website for more info.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In October there was a brand new 2-day event, KaLiCon held in Belleville, ON Canada

It went beyond expectations and thanks to Kali Willows and Kacey Hammell, along with their amazing team, the event was a great success. Friday schedule was packed. There was the Elven Games I got to put together with M. A. Abraham where we had musical chairs, musical toys (a variation of musical chairs for those with mobility issues), puzzles, crafts, frog games, bow & arrows, also pin-the-tail-on-the-dragon, also games involving balloons, spoons and knees too 😀

There was the Author-Sponsored Luncheon, then Author Speed Dating (chat with the author for 5 minutes then move to the next one), then Cider Sampling with Kayleigh Malcolm. I have to say I never really liked cider before, now I certainly do. Later on was the VIP Cocktail Party where we got to try some yummy cocktails. I tried the KALICON DRAGON and BOOK WHORE… YUM … got to keep the menu sign YAY

We also had virtual signings from authors who could not be at the event and we chatted over video link. Lots of prizes were won, I did too, got a dragon eye necklace from Kali Willows.

On Saturday morning there was the Guess Whose Line is It, where there were lines read from various books and who guessed right won the book. I won Clone – Book of Eva by Paxton Summers got to keep the board and signed too. Also won a t-shirt from her.

Again, I was assisting M. A. Abraham at the signing but also got to sneak out and check out the other tables, meeting new authors along with hugging my faves. My haul is smaller this time 😉

books bought
books won or gifted to me
swag

The silent auction was a resounding success, with the generous donations from authors, bloggers and a few local companies.  My contribution was this necklace I made using aventurine, chalcedony, corralium, turquoise and 925 silver. The chosen charity was the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.

The plans are already in place for next year, I will be there helping M.A. again, plotting the Elven Games. Make sure you reserve your spot as soon as possible, go to the website for more info.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now to the best part… because it is my birthday tomorrow and you are all amazing and I love sharing my loot with you, there are two parcels, each containing:

  • two signed books chosen at random from the ones below. I purchased a copy of the Word Search for Warriors from C. A. King then got thinking, it is for a great cause, so I bought another one to share with you. Shaded by Love – Coloring Book was gifted by Kerri Anne, Clone – Book of Eva was gifted by Paxton Summers and Essence Derived was gifted by Carey Decevito specifically for this giveaway.
  • swag
  • VIP bags from both events

Luce’s surprise visit – OH MY!

Hello and welcome!

Read on and find out about the surprise visit I got lat night.

Ah, a Thursday night to myself, I speak to myself, as I make plans to curl up on the couch and watch a movie munching on some chocolates left behind by MA and maybe some popcorn too..

I get close to my front door and I notice a man standing next to it. He is tall, around six foot two, with medium brown hair he keeps in a tiny ponytail at the back of his head. He sees me coming towards him and a hopeful look enters his eyes. I have a feeling I am going to like this, the heck with the movie. Then again, what is there not to like about him? He is dressed in leather from the top of his wide shoulders to his boots. We all know how I feel about men in leather, especially when it hugs their body like a lover and … OH MY!!! He is built to please!

Eni? The man enquires in a deep husky baritone that cause goosebumps over every inch of my body.

I stifle an appreciative sigh as I look into stormy blue eyes and answer, Can I do something for you?

I have something to show you, as well as a favor to ask, he begins.

I hate to do this, but a woman can’t be too sure of strangers waiting outside of her door, Who are you? And who sent you?

Well, he blushes, to be honest, I stole your records from MA’s computer files and hightailed it to your address. She is being unreasonable and I figured you might be able to help me reason with her.

Why should I? I decide to give this man a difficult time. You haven’t even told me your name yet, you just confessed to hacking into my friend’s computer, and I have never seen you before in my life. How do I know you aren’t hiding a weapon somewhere on you and waiting for me to let down my guard before you attack me or something.

My name is Luce and, I give you my word of honor as a Four Star General from the Hampton Planetoid that I am not a convict or pervert. I have only come with a small request, he insists.

The weapon? I ask pointedly.

Luce slowly turns, as he raises his hand into the air to show he isn’t hiding anything, Do you see any signs of a weapon?

I can’t help myself as my eyes head south and latch on to the curve of his behind. I have to admit, I don’t see signs of a weapon either. Perhaps, I should frisk him, then again, that would be a bad idea… for me.

It is then that I notice the tube he is carrying and wonder where that came from, What is in there?

It is what I came to show you, Luce admits.

Alright, I’ll bite, I comment, as I open the door, please come in and show me what you have.

Luce enters the room ahead of me and I softly sigh, I really like the view. He looks great in those leathers, especially from behind. Well, now you know… I like a well-defined tush on a man, so sue me 😛

As I hang up my coat, Luce opens the tube and unfurls a poster. I immediately gasp as I note it is a picture of one of MA’s upcoming releases and he is on it. I haven’t seen this before. I love it, but how did you get your hands on it?

I told you, I hacked into her computer, Luce doesn’t sound the least bit ashamed or repentant.

For this? Why? It is only a matter of time before she shows it off, she can’t keep  secrets when it comes to her books, I tell him.

She intended to keep this one a secret, even worse, she wasn’t going to release the book until 2020, and late in the year at that. I am not happy about having to wait that long for my bride. I want her now, Luce sounds fierce.

I can’t help you, I state. Cute tush or not.

Why not? Luce asks.

Her schedule is committed for the next year. There is nothing I can do to change that, I state.

How about next year? I am begging, Luce pleads. Teyla could change her mind and I can’t give her that chance.

Is she that fickle? I am tempted to believe she isn’t worth the effort you are going through for her, if that is the case, I reply.

She isn’t fickle, Luce defends his love.

That is so sweet. I give a sigh as his eyes plead his case. I can’t say no. Alright, I will talk her into it, but I want the poster.

It is yours, Luce all but pushes it at me, as he moves to give me a hug.

Wait! I quickly order him to stop, then I put the poster aside and hold out my arms. Now you can hug me. We will do a press release and she will have no choice but to fall in with our demands.

Luce gives me a hug and smile as he comments, I owe you, but for now, I better get back to my ship. I have a long way to go to get back.

I watch him leave and sigh, I really do love a man in leather.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the visit too 😉 well… maybe not as much as I did, but …

Here’s the poster. Isn’t it gorgeous? Created by amazing Cora at Cora Graphics.

Equals-cover

Teyla Sherman is a military genius that has climbed the ranks quickly on the planetoid known as New York in a cluster that was seeded centuries before by Earthships. She is known for her tactical mind, as well as her beauty and, although she is often sent into areas of the cluster to plan out strategies, she will not like the mission she is about to be sent out on. She is to shadow an equally talented General to develop plans for an attack on his planet, should they be needed. To do this, she is ordered to use every asset she has to accomplish her goal.

Luce Renfrew is known as a ladies man, a handsome devil that attracts women like a magnet. He is used to getting what he wants and he wants Teyla. He is prepared to use every dirty trick in the book to get his way, especially when he discovers that the attraction is mutual.

General Roberts is Teyla’s commanding officer and he hates her with a passion that is not to be denied. He will do anything to destroy her, but up to this point, his efforts have only elevated her career. When he finds out she is in love with a General from another Planetoid, he declares war of a different kind. If he can’t win one way, he will another.

When Generals from opposing sides of the cluster fall in love and the stakes are high, what will it take for those around them to let them come together?

Equals is scheduled to release October 2020. I am editing the manuscript now and I have to tell you, I understand why Luce wants his story released to the world earlier than scheduled.

Here is a taste 😉

“You feel so right in my arms,” Luce groaned, as he wrapped his arms around Teyla to pull her closer. He then feathered her lips with his, coaxing them apart to receive his kiss.

Teyla’s reaction was spontaneous, as she stretched up towards Luce and parted her lips to meet his. Her body strained to get closer, even as her mind screamed no.

Do you think I should help him and convince Mary Ann to release ‘Equals’ earlier than the scheduled date? Let me know in the comments and could win a $5 Amazon GC. Sexy Mr. Random will let me know who the winner is on Monday, November 12, 2018.

Hidden Kingdoms by M. A. Abraham

Hello and welcome!

A new release from M. A. Abraham! CONGRATS MA!

hiddenkingdoms_medium

It has been several years since the Elves created the boundary that keeps them hidden from the rest of the world. They have been busy rebuilding the lands that were destroyed during the Drazon war, and developing new lands.

Now that the bulk of the work is done, the Oracles have called upon members of the younger generation to go on a Quest. It is time to free the High King of the Ancients at the furthest end of the Empire. To do this, they will have to travel through parts of the empire that everyone thought was nothing more than wild and empty territory. This, however, is not the case. What they are about to find will challenge their skills in many ways.

Come with them as they travel through this perilous land to find out if they can successfully free the Ancient King from his jail. If they do, will they return with him unchanged?

Hidden Kingdoms, Chapter I

Hello and welcome!

I am excited to share Chapter 1 of the upcoming release from M. A. Abraham.

HIDDEN KINGDOMS is book 1 of the One Empire series, the spinoff from Elven Chronicles and releases November 6, 2018. The beautiful cover was created by talented Cora Graphics.

hiddenkingdomspaperback

It has been several years since the Elves created the boundary that keeps them safe from the rest of the world. They have been busy rebuilding the lands the Drazon destroyed in the war and developing new ones.

Now that the bulk of the work is done, the Fates have decided it is time to tell them about the second portion of the Elven Empire and send then into the uncharted wilds on a quest. They are to find the Hidden Kingdoms and begin the restoration of the Empire as it was in the days of the Ancients. How are they to do that? All knowledge of those days have been lost to time, or has it?

The sons of King Liessen, Marious and Gabriel are amongst those that have been chosen and, as they venture away from their homes, they find more than anyone expected, for there are Elves of different colours and cultures living beyond their world. It makes them wonder what is in store for them, as well as why they have remained hidden for so long?

Click on this link Hidden Kingdoms, Chapter I and read on.

Preorder links : iBooksSmashwordsKobo and more coming soon.

RFTA

Make sure you read the short story, Rising from the Ashes, before Hidden Kingdoms.

Continuing from where the Elven Chronicles left off. We bring you the ONE EMPIRE SERIES.

The Drazon is dead, and the Demons have been eradicated from the Elven Empire. Now the Elves can begin anew, and this is exactly what they are about to do. Their lands are scarred by the war, their original Kingdoms fragmented and their people are in need of healing as much as the world around them. The boundary has been raised, to separate the Elven Empire from the rest of the world, and they settle down to work.

The new era starts with the Elven Kingdoms uniting as the One Empire, Life Mates are found, relationships cemented, and peace reigns. There is no better time to rebuild their world, and raise a family. First, the men who took advantage of Gabriel and Eden’s spell must convince their Life Mates that what they did was not such a bad thing. That could take a while, especially for any Male Elf who is bonded to a Light Elven Female.

Sten & Errisa … surprise!!!

Hello and welcome!

If you are following this blog for a while, you know that I get the most unexpected visits and they are usually from one of two places, the Elven Empire or Tantalus. Not that I am complaining, far from it, I really enjoy myself every time and I hope you do too.

Keep on reading to find out what happened earlier today.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I look up from my desk when a sudden cool wind distracts me from the edits I am working on and notice a man ushering a gorgeous looking woman through the doorway of my office. They are both wearing capes and have most of their faces hidden from view, but I can tell she is drop dead gorgeous, and he is enough to make a woman kill for possession. DAYUM the cape can’t hide his physique, but  I want to see more, much more.

Eniko? A deep voice enters my mind, telling me this is another alien from Tantalus, but there are no wings on these two.

I nod quietly and he smiles as he adds, I needed to make sure I had the right place and the right person.

The couple removes their capes and I can feel the drool collect in my mouth. I also catch the whimper that threatens to escape from my throat.

I am Sten, and this is my fiancée, Errisa he quickly introduces them both.

I can’t believe I am looking at these two. I happen to recognize them from one of the stories I read and I give a sigh of appreciation, along with a huge smile, as my mind thinks, how often does anyone get a chance to interview a merman and his mermaid Life Mate? I am talking about reality here, not one of those fake shows that you can tell have been formatted to suit the storyline.

Who sent you? Did they stick around long enough for me to thank them? Can I ask you questions? Hear your Siren voices? adding deep in my mind ‘jump your bones?’ I hope I am not rattling too much and you don’t read my mind, Boy, do I hope you aren’t reading my mind. I have never met a Siren before and I am suddenly feeling shaky.

Errisa immediately rushes to get some water for me as she hums a light song that I find soothing. It feels so good I can only wonder if she added something to the water. I turn to ask her, she smiles and speaks with a light melodic voice. I only took the impurities out of the water. You will feel better in a few moments, she assures me.

What can I do for you? I am game to offer you an assortment of services, I continue to speak without engaging my mind.

Sten grins, and I have a suspicion he has plucked the thought out of my mind where I considered a wish to jump his bones. I feel my face go up in flames and Errisa rushes to get more water, in hopes this might help my condition. Nope. But some ice might help to cool my cheeks. Sten only watches me with a grin on his face and chuckles. The cad!

I will be alright, I speak. I know it is a lie, but I have to do something, other than pretend to recover. Sten isn’t helping as he folds his arms across that incredible looking chest and continues to watch Errisa and I. What can I do for you?

We had hoped you could help us find a place where we can hide from Echoe and Vikor. They are hounding us to death. Sten explains.

I can’t help the nervous giggle that comes out of my mouth, as I remember Errisa’s sister and her husband’s actions. They still making your life interesting?

Something tells me you were told too much about what went on, who should we blame for that? Errisa asked.

I won’t tell, I replied, adding in my mind ‘Do your worst, I won’t rat out my friend.’

I see, I think we should make a little social call to our writer friend, Errisa suggested to Sten.

Perhaps she can help create a safe zone for the two of you. I add.

I can tell Sten is considering both ideas. In the meantime, I ask, Would you answer some questions? You are the first Sirens I’ve have met.

Sten frowns, as he wraps his cape back around his gorgeous body and then helps Errisa with hers. Then he comes close to forcing her out of the room. He stops, looks at me and comments, I am sure you are right, but we are leaving anyway. We have a writer to throttle… errr… I mean talk to.

Don’t hurt her, I call out. She hasn’t finished writing all the books pertaining to your series yet.

Sten stops and asks, This is important to you?

I reply, Probably to you too.

You do know she doesn’t deserve you, Sten declares.

I know, I can’t help but grin, But, she is stuck with me anyway.

As we are with her, Sten points out.

You won’t consider doing an interview? I can only hope and ask again.

Perhaps sometime in the future, Sten states, then escorts Errisa out of my office and they are gone.

In my mind I shout very loudly in hopes they hear me, That is totally unfair.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, there you have and I hope you enjoyed it. I did, despite leaving me frustrated. I know, I am greedy, I always want more… more information… more time… more… more… more … 😀

Sten and Errisa hail from the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham, their novella, THE SIREN CONNECTION will be releasing on September 18, 2018. I hope you will join them and find out how bad Echo and Vikor are, they made me so mad at times, I wanted to smack them, how much interference they ran between Sten and Errisa.

TheSirenConnection-cover-lowrez

The oceans of Tantalus are teaming with Aquarians, the dangerous, predatory mammals that feed off anything that lands in their territory. What is strange about them is that they are avoiding the part of the ocean, close to the shoreline where Trysuil is planning to build the city of learning for the future generations. His question is, why this area? What is keeping them at bay?

As the water is no place for a winged man, Kyllan turns to his friends, the Sirens. They will soon get to the bottom of this, but it will come at a cost to the Tantalarians. The Sirens take one look at Tantalus and the sight of all that water feels like home. The home they knew on Mars never called to them in the same way and they know it is time to move on.

My Chat with Riven

Hello and welcome!

Today, I just wanted to stay home, put my feet up, watch a good movie and relax. Nothing more, well, nothing that I can write about on an open forum at any rate. 😉

Imagine my surprise earlier today when I get home after doing a grocery trip, there is a note waiting for me on my front door.Dinner is on me. If you are interested, call this number. They will give you the address and send a car for you, dress accordingly. Riven

Right, as if I am going to believe this. I enter my apartment and the smell of hot food teases my nose and I suddenly feel hungry. The only problem is, my son ate it all. He looks at me in surprise and comments, I thought you were going out, or so the note on the bag said, so I ate it all. There wasn’t that much anyway.

Right, this is the ‘hollow leg’ talking, there is never much of anything and what there is, gets absorbed. I swear that teenager inhales the food and goes looking for more. It did smell good though. I look at the number on the note in my hand and think I have nothing to lose. I will give it a try and see what happens. At the very least, I might get a free meal out of this. I dial the number and a man with a slightly nasal sounding voice answers. I might sound prejudiced, but usually that type tends to be stuck up.

Good evening, you have reached The Chase Restaurant. What can we do for you?

I roll my eyes and then answer, I was given this number and told to mention Riven has instructions for me.

Of course, Ms. Eniko, I will have the limousine dispatched for you immediately. It will arrive in a half an hour. Our dress code is formal, I will tell Mr. Riven that you are on your way.

I hang up and my eyes grow big… It is real… and The Chase? Oh yum, and I am starved.

Dress code, formal… of course… and in half an hour. I am going to break the speed limit getting ready and making sure I am not late for my ride.

I smile as a stretch limousine arrives at the front door exactly a half an hour later and breath a sigh of relief that I beat it by a mere minute and a half. So, I am a little out of breath, but I am having dinner at The Chase.

A gorgeous dark haired male meets the limo and opens the door with a bow and a smile that makes me sigh, amongst other things. Man, this man should have a warning label on him. I can’t help but return his smile with one of my own and he offers his hand to help me out of the back of the car. Of course you know I am not going refuse his help, right? Snort. I am feeling sooooo shameless right now. The moment I am out of the car he tucks my hand onto the crook of his arm and leads me into the restaurant.

I hope you don’t mind my sending for you the way I did, I am Riven, Teryka’s husband. Merika said I am to treat you right, or she will make my life interesting in ways I don’t want to think about for the next year. She didn’t tell me that I would be greeting a lady though. I am very impressed. Teryka says to say hello, and she sent a little surprise for you, homemade truffles made with the best chocolate she could bring through the portal into our world. She says you are partial to them.

Merika knows me well. Many thanks to her.

Tyrus and Kodac have added a little something for you too, which left me to gift you with flowers. As I never know what to order for a woman, I have told the florist to sent a couple dozen blush peonies to your home. Unfortunately, they won’t arrive until tomorrow.

Oh those are my fave!

I have been told by a little birdie a few of your favourite dishes, Calamari, Veal Masala and Filet Mignon. They are preparing them all so you can take your pick or try them all if you wish.

I feel spoiled already, and so hungry. My stomach makes a noise agreeing heartily.

The man has an slight accent that I can’t place, but I bet it could slay dragons. I am going to enjoy this… 

We chatted well into the night and I managed to get some answers out of him. Read on and find out.

What is one word best describes you?
Generally I would say down to earth, but something has thrown me off my game lately.

maninsuitsource

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
I have found that while I am more comfortable wearing work clothes, I do like my suits. I am wearing a dark grey Gucci 3 piece suit at the moment. What do you think? Does it suit me?
It sure does… very well!

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
The way she carries herself. You can always tell if she is confident with who she is deep inside.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
There is and always will be only one woman for me, Teryika. My wild rose.

Thank you Riven for the lovely evening. Sending hugs to Merika and Teryka and regards to Kodac and Tyrus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed my little surprise dinner. I sure did.

Teryka-cover

 

Riven hails from Teryka Rose, book 2 in the ‘Daughters of the Valley Trilogy‘ by M. A. Abraham releasing on July 31, 2018.

Teryka Rose is Tyrus and Merika’s youngest, and the apple of Kodac’s eye. She is beautiful, powerful and popular. This is something she takes in stride, along with the training her parents offer. She believes she has her life all mapped out, until life throws a twist at her in the shape of Riven and his friends.

Riven took one look at Teryka Rose soon after she had been born and he knew she would one day be his, although that would be a long time in the future. The years have passed and he is ready to settle down, only she has another love interest. This is going to take some creative planning on his part and a little help from his friends to change.

As she her world feels like it is falling apart around her, Teryka decides to make changes. With the help of her mother, she moves into Merika’s old apartment in Los Angeles, and gets a job as an actress. The last thing she expects is for Riven to follow her, or end up in a starring role in the same show, but his being by her side feels so right, and she can only wonder how that happened.

My review – 5 stars
I fell in love with the Valley and its people in book 1 and book 2 is feeding my addiction to this wonderful world the author created. Destined to be together, Teryka and Riven do not have an easy journey. Loved Riven and we get to see another side of him. Kodac is still full a mischief, he is still my fave secondary character. Great continuation of the series. I can’t wait for the next one.

To celebrate the new release, Ms. Abraham is giving away an ebook copy of ‘Teryka Rose’. Tell me what is your fave dish. Sexy Mr. Random will pick a name from the comments on release day, after 3pm on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. Good luck!

Unexpected visit from Tantalus

Hello and welcome!

Earlier today… as I was writing in my journal … YES! don’t judge! I still write by hand on paper, in a notebook, not as much as I used to and my handwriting suffered for sure. That story is for another day though… ok… where was I? Ah yes! Sitting in my comfy chair, writing in my notebook …

Are you busy? A soft, melodious male voice flows through my mind.

I can tell whoever is contacting me hails from Tantalus, but I have never heard this voice before. I am curious to find out what kind of surprise awaits me.

I am never too busy for my friends. I respond.

I will be brining some special people with me, if you don’t mind. The voice returns.

The more the merrier. You do realize I will be asking questions when you do. I tease.

I can hear the smile in his voice as he responds, We would be surprised if you don’t. You may be even more surprised with some of our answers. There are many changes happening on Tantalus and, although we can’t fill you in on all of the details, we can leave hints about what some of them are. The voice teases me back.

I can feel whoever contacted me leave my consciousness and I shout, You can’t tell me something like that and then leave me in limbo, get back here.

There is no response. NONE! As I pace the room, I swear I can feel my blood pressure rise and I want to hit someone. How dare he leave me hanging like this? You wonder why I hate cliffhangers so much? This is a prime example.

When I think I am about to blow a gasket, I hear a soft rap on my door. He is here, I can feel him, and boy have I got a few words to say to him.

I open my mouth with the intention of speaking my mind as I fling open the door, and then freeze. DAYUM!!!

Hello Eniko, I am Kyran.

I am Kystan, and it looks like Trysuil was right about you.

Trysuil? Right? Okay, so I sound brain dead, but DAYUM …. great mounds of Angel flesh!!! They are Kyllan’s sons, I can tell they are, they look like a younger version of him. Somehow, I find my misplaced wits and ask. What is Trysuil right about?

Your reaction to our presence. He sent us to fly you up to the ship. Would you like us to hold you in our arms? Or, would you rather ride on the platform?

I can’t help but grin or stop the words that flow unchecked from my mouth, nothing new there, right? Your arms are for me. M.A. would have chosen the platform. She is such a scaredy cat 😛

Who would you like to fly you?

Do I get to choose? I ask. Perhaps I could be the one in the middle, I think I would like that.

Interesting byplay on words, considering what you are thinking. Kyran snickers.

So bite me, right here, I don’t even think as I motion towards the spot I am thinking of with my hand. I am not even aware of the fact that I have spoken aloud, or that I am already blurting out the rest of my thoughts, Can I lick you, to see if you are real or if I am dreaming?

I thought that phrase was pinch me, to see if I am dreaming, Kystan wrinkles a brow as he considers the matter.

It is and I am willing if you are. I answer with a grin. All right, so I am flirting outrageously, but I can’t seem to stop myself.

Within moments Kystan whisks me into his arms and we are off to… who cares where… I am clinging tightly to his shoulders OH MY!!! I hope it will take long. A small opening appears ahead of us and we land inside their ship where Trysuil is waiting to greet me.

Welcome to Tantalus, Eniko.

Damn, he is hot. I allow my thoughts to flow through my mind and watch as he smiles slowly enough to make my blood heat up. He spreads his wings wide, so flames can ripple freely amongst them. I watch and give an excited squeal of delight. I can’t believe the Adjudicator has come to see me. Where is Alena, his lucky mate? I wonder if the Tantalarian Females realize how good they have it. They not only have men that are handsome enough to make a gal drool, but they are treated like precious dolls. I want one for my own.

Can I go back to Tantalus with you? I ask.

Trysuil shakes his head as he answers, You have important work to do here, but we have heard so much about you from Kyllan that we felt we should come see you for ourselves. We also have brought someone to show you, although this part of the story has yet to be told, as is Kystan and Kyran’s.

So far I am not complaining about a thing, I reply.

I would introduce you to my mate, Alena, Trysuil speaks, as he turns slightly to wind a wing around someone approaching him. There is so much love and pride in his face as he speaks that I can’t talk past the lump that forms in my throat. This is how love should be between two people!

Alena is covered by one of Trysuil’s wings as she comes forward. He unfurls it and I can see she is holding a small bundle in her arms. She is also glowing with happiness in a way that makes me glad I am wearing sunglasses. She is so beautiful. Are there Tantalarians that are not drop dead gorgeous?

We wanted you to be the first human to see our son, Alena’s voice is light and airy, and she unwraps the child from its little blanket.

My eyes grow wide, then misty as I see the perfectly formed little cherub being revealed. I reach for the baby and then stop. It is not my place to take a child from its mother. Besides, Trysuil might object and then he would fry my hide. Not a good thing.

Alena smiles wider and moves close, so she can place the baby into my arms. I feel tears running down my cheeks as I touch his soft skin and downy feathers. He smiles at me and I coo at him.

His name is Tyrell, Alena speaks while she watches her son with a tender expression. He is our miracle.

He certainly is that, as are all children, I agree, as he begins to fuss.

Alena is immediately there to reach out and hug her child to settle him. It is everything I can do to give him back to her, babies are so precious.

I look at Trysuil and ask, So what can we expect in the future?

Much! comes the answer Our world is coming into its own now and those that were hidden are almost ready to come back out into the world and out of their sanctuary. First, we must come to this world, so we can help those in need here.

When will we get to know more about the future? I want this information now, not in a couple of years from now.

Patience, Eniko. One story at a time, you have a much better idea now what to expect from us later, when People of the Phoenix releases. Until then, we will work to sever our ties with this planet.

Does that mean I will never see you again? I worry.

I give you my word, I will not forsake you, Trysuil promises wrapping his wing around his family.

I heave a great sigh as I watch him leave the room. I am already beginning to feel abandoned.

Kyran and Kystan wrap their wings around me and I am nearly smothered in wings and the heavenly scent of male Tantalarian bodies. I grin as I realize I forgot to even check to see what they were wearing. And here I am, sandwiched between Kyllan’s sons. I have to admit, I definitely don’t feel alone at this moment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That was bliss even though it was fleeting encounter and I didn’t get to ask many questions. We got glimpses of the distant future that I even didn’t know about, how cool is that? It was disconcerting at the beginning hearing the voices in my mind, but I like it! I would want that power too.

You get to meet Trysuil in The Phoenixes Choice, book 5 in the Tantalus series by M.A. Abraham.

The Phoenixes Choice-cover

Kyllan has come home to find several surprises waiting for him, one in the form of a man he had thought dead. Trysuil is most definitely not lost to their people, and he couldn’t be happier. His daughter, Alena, is ecstatic, for her love has been returned to her.

The Phoenixes saved Trysuil from what would have been a certain death, for he had more potential than anyone could have imagined. They kept him in a state of suspended animation, until the time was right, with the knowledge that their world was about to go through many changes in the future. In his new position of power, he will be known as the Adjudicator. He only answers to the Phoenixes; he is their judge and jury.

Those who have gotten to know Kyllan respect and admire him as a good leader of uncanny foresight and abilities. As they get to know Trysuil, they find out that he is fair, just and a man of vision. He will not abuse his position. He would rather help those who have come to live on Tantalus build a future for the generations that are to follow, but he can bring down the might of the Phoenixes to bear on them, if there is a need.
