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.

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.

My Chat with Aura

Hello and welcome!

Since the book is coming out in audio format, I was thinking it would be perfect to ask one of my fave book girlfriends, Aura, to come for a chat. But how will I do that? How can I contact her? She is back in time, somewhere in the 10th century, reunited with her love, Thorn. Remember him? He was my guest here a few years back. If you missed it, check it out here.

Turns out that if wished hard enough, they do come true 😀

Read on to see what happened earlier today…

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

As I walk towards my office, I can see someone knocking at my door.  She is covered in a deep, dark red, full-length cape with fur trim that is totally out of sync with our time.  It is also something I think is absolutely gorgeous.

Excuse me, I call out, as I approach the lady, can I help you?

The lady turns, looks at me enquiringly for a moment, and then smiles.  I don’t know who she is, but I smile back, mainly because the expression on her face is so filled with happiness.  I am a little surprised when she seems to know of me, calling my name.

Eniko, I am Aura, and I would like to thank you for the time you spent interviewing my husband, Thorn.  He was quite impressed with you at the time.  He says you are a real lady.  Aura spoke.

Oh Do I remember Thorn!!! 😉

I am honoured he would think so.  Please come into the studio where it is warm, I will make some tea, or would you rather have coffee?  It is cold outside.

Tea would be fine. Aura smiles wider.

I unlock the door and we enter.  The first thing I do is take her cape to hang it up… I know, but it is red, and I have to at least have an excuse to touch it.  I also find it heavy, and find that it is lined with fur, no wonder the cold wasn’t bothering her.

Aura watches me and laughs, as she admits, I did the same thing when Thorn gave it to me, it is so soft and warm.  He says he has to take care of me so I won’t try to disappear on him again, as if I would.

I want that dress! I blurt out, even as I slap my hand over my mouth to stop myself from saying the words.  Too late.

Aura is wearing a dress to match the colour of the cape.  The collar is slightly scooped from shoulder to shoulder, the sleeves are belled, there is a braided belt in black leather that winds loosely around her waist to tie in front and fall to the hem of her belled skirt.  The edges of the gown are embroidered in black thread, and it looks heavenly on her.

You have come a long way. I comment.

I can’t stay long, Thorn will miss me if I do, and he definitely won’t take kindly to my coming back to this time, but I had to at least meet you and let you know that you are thought of fondly in our home.  Aura spoke.  You would be surprised how many people take Thorn for granted amongst those that live in our time.  He is so well known for his fairness and leadership ability that he is in constant demand.  When he is gone, my world is empty, so I understand why he hates it when he arrives to find me missing, even if I am on the grounds collecting herbs for the kitchen, or teaching the children.

You are happy then? I ask, as I place a cup of tea before her.

I have never known happiness like I have with Thorn.  I would never have believed it existed before him.  He is everything I could ever want or need.  Aura admits.

What is it like to live in the time you do, after having known the luxuries of the modern world?  I wonder out loud.

You get used to it.  Sure, there are things I would like to have, but I have learned to do without. Aura states.  There are also things that I don’t miss at all, and before you think of luxuries, those I don’t miss at all.  It is a simple life, but it is ours and as long as Thorn is there for me, that is what is important to me.

There is silence for a while, and I feel the yearning building in my heart.  She looks so happy, so pleased with her lot in life.  She is also gorgeous, more than I imagined she would be, despite the callouses on her hands.  It gives me the feeling that despite the hard work, she feels she has the best of both worlds. 

As a thought runs through my mind, I grin and ask, You don’t think you could find a way to take me back with you, please?  You sound so content, so happy with your lot in life.  I think I might like to experience this too.

Aura smiles and shakes her head, even as she answers, It is not possible, nor is the life I am living for everyone.  The only thing that binds me to that time is my family, and the love of the man that prayed for it to happen to make his wish come true.  I have to admit, there are still times I have trouble with that, but I have learned to accept it.

As Aura stands to leave, I have to know one question about that gorgeous hunk of hers, Is Thorn ticklish?

Aura smiles and winks, then after donning her cape, she walks out the door.

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

I wish I could have gone with her. Would you?

As I mentioned earlier, the audiobook format of Aura by M. A. Abraham was released today and I hope you will give it a chance. It is my fave standalone from Ms. Abraham’s books. Narrated by Paul Woodson, one of my fave voices I listen to with delight every chance I get, I am sure it will provide many hours of listening enjoyment. If you missed my chat with Mr. Woodson, you can check it out here.

Aura_AudioBook_cover

Aura is her mother’s love child, a living memory of the biggest mistake she ever made, and she never lets Aura forget it. Shunned by her mother, dismissed by her stepsisters, Aura drifts through life. She has little to sustain her miserable existence but her dreams. Until fate takes a hand and tosses her far into the past, a past she must learn to survive in. Alone with nothing but a couple of pets Aura learns what it is like to be on her own. She learns how to make a life for herself in a time where she does not belong. Or maybe she does.

Thorn is the right hand man of the Duke Vernon. He is a warlord, a great warrior and leader. He also has a belief that somewhere in the world his soul mate waits for him. Each day he prays for the guidance that will bring her to his attention, but when it does, will he know her? Will he accept that she is the one who is meant for him?

Aura finds a knight beaten and left for dead and she nurses him back to health. It is the first time Thorn meets her, but not the last. A year later they meet again, by then she is a favorite of the Duke Vernon because of her knowledge. Vernon wants to keep her close because of what she knows. Thorn wants to keep her closer but for other reasons. Here is the woman he has searched for, his soul mate. Can he hold on to her, or does fate have other plans?

My review of the book from 2013

5 stars loves transcends time and place

I really enjoyed M.A. Abraham’s story, Aura. It is very powerful and deep tale of a young woman, Aura, who is very unhappy due to the lack of love she craves from her mother which is never freely given. This has repercussions in her dealings with facing her soul mate. She finds him in the distant past where she is transported back in time from the cave she takes refuge from the hurt heaped on her yet again by her Mother. She adapts and grows as she did all her life, she is strong, witty, but afraid to believe that love does exist.
Thorn is a highly respected warlord, a very strong and proud warrior, also very warm and caring. He has dreamed about his soul mate for some time and those dreams come true when he meets Aura. Despite the rough beginning, their relationship blossoms into love. Makes us believe that you have to really believe in something, never let go of the hope you hold strong, and only then it will become reality.
I strongly recommend this book, it is a journey of two people who complement each other and together they are whole. A story showing that loves transcends time and place.

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.

The release is scheduled for April 17, 2018.

My Chat with Chania!

Hello and welcome!

As you know I am an Elfanatic and I was the happiest when I found out that the Elven Chronicles by M. A. Abraham does not stop with the last book, Kings of the Empire, number 12 in the series released in February of 2017!

There is one spinoff that started in December with the release of Rising From the Ashes, book 1 of the One Empire series, continuing from where the Elven Chronicles left off. I hope you gave it a try, if not, check out my post with my review, I know I will change your mind 😉

GOTE-logo-4web

The second spinoff is the Guardians of the Empire series, and the first book, The Goddess, released on February 4, 2018.

My guest today is the heroine is THE Goddess 😀 SURPRISE!!!

Please welcome Chania!

I do a double take as one of the most gorgeous Elven females I have ever seen walk through the doorway and begins to pace in my interview room. She doesn’t look happy about something.

Chania?

Right now I am not so sure if I want to be Chania, but yes.

Is something wrong?

Nothing a good smack to the side of a lunk head won’t fix. Chania adds, even as she heaves a deep sign and carries on. Oh, I know I wouldn’t come here to vent, but sometimes I find men can be so close to being brain dead I can barely tell the difference.

Boy, do I know where you are coming from. I remark, even as I feel somewhat shocked by Chania’s words. Had she not bonded with Daeron yet? I thought that was a border that had already been crossed.

You would have thought that smack I gave him across his head with my Dragon’s tail would have kick started his brains, but maybe that is impossible. Chania continues to rant.

Alright, I remember that. I don’t say it, but I think, most men have hard heads.

You know what is even more frustrating? My Dragon has the hots for his, the hussy Chania snorts, belying the impression I always had that gorgeous women don’t act like this or have trouble with men.  I mean, lets be truthful here. The woman is drop dead gorgeous and probably deserves a man that isn’t up for twit of the year.

I thought all Life Mates loved their mates, doesn’t Daeron feel the same for you as you do for him?

Chania plops herself on to the couch as she heaves a sigh He is going to drive me crazy. First he treats me like I don’t exist. Then, when he notices me, he is like a heat seeking missile and yes, he is enough to make a girl want to permanently lose her underwear, but you have never seen anyone so clued out. Most men are like that, aren’t they?

Yes, they are. Don’t get me started!

My sister isn’t helping matters at all either. Of course, she has her own problems coming up, but that isn’t for a while yet. She told me to suck it up because it is already too late for me to change things. Worse thing is, she is right. How do you train a man to behave when all you really want is for him to jump your bones? Damn, but that man is hot, despite his hollow head. Chania huffs

So, what are you planning?

Payback. He thinks he is so great. I have news for him. I will see him grovel before I take him back. Chania decides

You think he will? I wonder.

Chania gives me a smug smile as she replies He will if he knows what is good for him and something tells me he definitely does.

So, what are your short term plans?

Chania grins as she softly purrs, It is time to start teaching that Dragon how to treat a lady and I don’t mean my Dragon, she would only jump on him, the tart.

Oooo, that sounds devious. Are you going to give us an insight about how you intend to do this?

With a devilish chuckle Chania replies, Well, there are a few ideas floating around in my head. The first one runs along the line of killing him with kindness.

And the other? I ask. Yes, I am as curious about this as a cat.

Well… I believe a Dragon can be starved for affection, especially if he sees something he wants badly enough. Chania grins evilly.

You think it will work?

If not, I will hit him on the side of the head with my tail again. Chania declares.

I thought you said your Dragon was a hussy and would jump his Dragon’s bones. I am trying to figure this out.

Yes, but I think I can handle her, probably better than him. Chania worries.

Why do you say that?

Chania sighs as she admits, Because brain dead or not, he is hotter than his Dragon.

Yeah, I can see where that could be a problem. I agree.

What is a girl to do?

Well…. good luck and many blessings! I wish her as she leaves, but she doesn’t answers. I hope they work it out, if Daeron doesn’t behave I could help with the smacks upside the head 😉

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

Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoyed the chat. As usual as with all M.A.’s characters, the chat didn’t go as planned, but I did enjoy it immensely because it is a surprise every time LOL

As I mentioned at the beginning, Chania hails from The Goddess, book 1 in the Guardians of the Empire series by M. A. Abraham. If you read the Elven Chronicles, I am sure you already know that this is going to be an awesome series. If not, I urge you to try it, you will become an Elfanatic in no time 😀 I had Daeron, her mate, pop in for a surprise visit, check it out here if you missed it. It was quite entertaining 😉

thegoddess_medium

Chania has lived most of her life in seclusion. She was placed amongst the humans that had once come to the aid of her ancestors, many millenniums before. She kept secreted by the head priestess, and revered as a Goddess by the people. She knows she is not what they think she is. She is an Elven Princess in hiding, and content to stay that way.

Daeron is an Elven/Dragon shapeshifter, who has served as second in command of the Guardians of the Elven Empire for a long time. He comes from a long line of Kings, and has proven himself worthy of his position of life. He is a proud, noble, Golden Dragon, when he is not an Elf. He is not so pleased with the sudden match making ambitions of his leader though, especially when he has been singled out to be mated with one of the leader’s daughters. He is not about to give in without a fight. He will not be used in this manner, not by anyone.

Captured by her father’s guardians and forced to his side, Chania, learns her fate. She is no happier about their upcoming nuptials than Daeron. They recognize the Life Bond they share, but under the circumstances, refuse to allow it to dictate their future. Can they fight an attraction that no Elf has ever been able to deny?

Read Chapter 1 on the author’s website.

Here is Daeron, Chania’s Life Mate. He is on the inside cover of the ebook.

My 5-star review
Elves AND dragons? COUNT ME IN! A 5-star start to this new series that takes us into the Elven Empire in the far future. Ms. Abraham’s fans of the Elven Empire Chronicles will really enjoy this new era. Despite being a grouch, I liked Daeron, well… most of the time, he behaved really bad for a few but he got knocked-off a few pegs by his Life Mate, Chania, a feisty one that put him thru his paces and made him work for everything. Great secondary characters, I am looking forward to their stories too.

To give you a taste of what is coming, here is the cover for The Princes, book 2 in the Guardians of the Empire series, it is Chania’s sister, Serena and her Life Mate, Theiron, who is Daeron’s brother.

My Chat with M. A. Abraham and her first audiobook release

Hello and welcome!

Do you remember at the beginning of the year I posted about First Contact, book 1 of the Tantalus series by M. A. Abraham being recorded? If not, you can check it out here.

Well… it is done and was released TODAY!!!

Help me congratulate Ms. Abraham and share her big news. Her very first audiobook release and I am soooo excited! I loved the story when I read it. Listening to Brian Callanan, the very talented narrator giving it life, makes it even more special.

Congrats to Mr. Callanan too, looking forward to listening to more. My ears really like his voices 😉

Check out the short audio clips on youtube…

FCaudioCover

Twenty ships have left the gravitational field of the Earth with the intention of colonizing Mars. Each is independent of the other and set to become domed cities upon landing. The mission is simple: go forth to develop the new planet, make it an extension of our home. Well, it sounded simple.

No one expected life on Mars to be easy, they are pioneers and that is a type of life that comes with dangers. What they didn’t expect was for the settings of one of the ships to be off enough to miss their landing, to miss the very planet they were meant to settle.

Even more astounding was to find another planet within a three-week travel period that lies in the shadow of the red planet. It is where they will land, where their ship will unfold to become a domed city. Where life is dangerous in a hostile land and they find unexpected help. The indigenous winged people of the planet don’t live on the surface of the planet, they live in cities in the clouds, but they are willing to extend a welcoming hand to those who have come to their land, as well as teach them what they can to survive. Their relationship begins with three words.

“Welcome to Tantalus.”

Here is a clip of the story at the beginning of the book …

… and here is one at the end and one of my fave scene in the book, I got goosebumps reading it, but listening to Mr. Callanan telling it … he captured the characters and their temperaments very well and the voice he gave for my love, Kyllan, the Tribunal Elder is PERFECTION

Buy link: Amazon •  Audible USAudible CAAudible AUiTunes

I got to chat with Ms. Abraham about her experience…

Tell us about Tantalus.
Tantalus is basically about a planet that is inhabited by people that have been seeded from other worlds.  There is more than 1 species on it, but the main one is the winged people who are dominant.  They are open to interaction with others, but are not deluded as to the problems that could cause, or the negative, as well as positive sides of the relationship this could cause.  They also realize that they are not perfect, for those that should have been watching over the direction the main population took during their rest period, neglected their duties and it had very adverse reactions from the order of things on the planet.  They are not only being approached by people from the Human race, as they wake up to what needs to be done to correct their error, but the restructuring of their social and governmental order within their own people.

First Choice… why the format of parallel stories?
You have to know where you are coming from, to have any idea where you are going.  The people from Earth have to make the trip to get to the planet.  We need to know what it took, and the problems they encountered on their journey.  Also, things are going to take a while to improve.

How did you come to decision to plunge into audiobook world?
Well, I had this little voice poking at my subconscious mind for a few years.  We all know who owns it.  I need not say more.
I am grinning big and fist pump yessssss

What is the process from deciding to go for it and releasing the audiobook? Was it easier or harder than you anticipated?
Deciding to go for it was making sure that the funds were in place before taking the initial step.  Once you get past the first hurdle, it doesn’t seem to be that difficult.  Getting the right narrator for the task is a huge plus.  It seems simple when you find the right person for the book, one who can connect with the feel for the people you are writing about.  I think in most cases it is like anything else, the wrong impression can destroy something that you believe is good, or it can make something mediocre sound like a song to be repeated many times over.

Personal feelings… are you excited, apprehensive?
Nervous as a cat trying to bury something on a marble floor before getting caught.  I am even having difficulty writing, and I need to get these books written, I am way behind.

What is the reaction of those close to you to this new adventure?
Some are pacing with me, others are not audiobook fans.  It is like picking a car, Ford, Chrysler, Mercedes, GM… one person’s poison is another’s candy.

Why should people pick up this book?
Because it may give you a different perspective from what is on the market today.  I do not tend to follow the beaten path when it comes to writing, which means you can expect something different.

How was working with Mr. Callanan… from author’s point of view?
Brian is very professional, if something is off, he catches it, even if it is something that shouldn’t be there.  He caught the nuances of the characters right off the top, and the few he didn’t, he rethought when it was pointed out.  Some narrators won’t listen to what you have to offer for advice.  Those I tended to reject straight off, the last thing a writer needs is more stress in their lives.

Are you glad you did this?
Well, we will find out.  I have done a lot of crazy things in my life and often the ones I thought were the nuttiest, were the best.

Why didn’t you do this sooner?
I looked into it, but unlike some, I don’t jump off a mountain unless I know there is a safety net beneath me.

Why Tantalus first and not the Elven Chronicles, which is the bigger selling series of the two?
The right narrator at the right moment.  Gabriel was up there, but 90% of the auditions were just wrong for that book.  The one I am looking at right now nailed all the names, and that is a feat in itself.

What is the strangest question you have had someone ask about the Tantalus Series?
Why I didn’t connect them to the Elves.  I could hear it now, Elves in space using light sabres.  That would have been so wrong.  Then again, who knows, the night is young.  😉

What is next?
Aura – and I have heard the audition that makes that book come alive already.  It will be done in February, and I am soooo looking forward to it.
Me too! It is my fave standalone book of yours! I can’t wait to hear Thorn sigh

Integration, book 2 in the Tantalus series, will be done in April and so you know the narrator on this book, to quote someone we all know,  “The scintillating voice of Brian Callanan will narrate this masterpiece”.
LOL I remember that

Thank you so much MA for chatting with me and I wish you much success with this new adventure. I am looking forward to more stories and my ears are ready for more audio time.

To celebrate the brand new release. Ms. Abraham is giving away a few audio copies of First Contact. Let me know in the comments if you would leave Earth for Tantalus if it was an option. I would be on the first ship! 😀
Sexy Mr. Random will pick winners on Sunday, January 28, 2017.

Awesome news from Tantalus!

Hello and welcome!

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were merry.

I had a relaxing week off and put quite a dent in my TBR pile, especially the audiobook one.

Now onto the awesome news from Tantalus!

I am having a great time listening to an audiobook in progress as it is finished chapter by chapter. The book is First Contact, book 1 in the Tantalus series by M.A. Abraham.

I AM SO EXCITED and I can’t wait for you all to hear it when it releases soon, I do not have an exact date, but you can bet I will share it when the date is set.

The talented Brian Callanan is the one narrating it, he chatted with me back in October. If you missed it, you can find it here. It is such a pleasure working with Brian, he has an uncanny ability to capture the many characters’ temperaments and quirks and the progress is swift. I am hoping he will be narrating the whole series. I love his various voices, male and female, young or old, the colourful nuances, the way I can hear the emotions behind the words.

I will have a trailer for First Contact audiobook to share soon. Until then you can check out his voice on Audible or ACX.

Rising from the Ashes – NEW RELEASE

Hello and welcome!

I am so excited for this new release! CONGRATS M. A. Abraham!

RFTA-banner

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.

Buy links.

 

My fave scenes in all the Elven books are the bonding scenes… Here is the one from “Rising from the Ashes” by M.A. Abraham.

“Séreméla, from the moment I saw you, I knew you were meant to be mine. You became the center of my world, the light of my soul. I reach for what my heart cannot help but yearn for and my heart cannot function without. Séreméla, I am yours.”

“Séreméla’s eyes met Åndorin’s, as he spoke, and she sought the golden thread she knew she would find, the one that would bind them forever more. It shone brightly, and the strength it revealed was astonishing. This was not something she could ignore, not that she wanted to. She held his gaze with hers, as she spoke.

“Even when we were battling the enemy, I could feel your presence, the love you felt in your heart surrounded me, and the strength of who you are held me close. I cannot deny what my soul needs anymore than my body can stop breathing the air it needs to survive. Åndorin, I am yours,” Séreméla declared.

“Séreméla, you who are the blood of my heart, and the light of my soul, I will always hold your words close within my memory, for you are mine,” Åndorin promised.

“Åndorin, forever you are mine,” Séreméla answered.

They then spoke the final words of bonding, “Together, we are one.” As they finished, they sealed their vows with a kiss.”

MY REVIEW – 5 stars

Like the many Elfanatics out there, I was so happy the stories from the much loved Elven world were not over. After so many centuries of battle and struggles, the time for peace is here. But there is so much to do to restore the Empire and as in the past, the many kingdoms come together and work side by side to make sure it gets done.

Many of the characters we came to love are making their presence known, along with many new ones. There is laughter, there is heartache but there is also hope as many of the new Life Mate pairings make their way to where they can make their mark, like Séreméla and Åndorin who start a movement that spreads like wildfire and gets everybody mobilized and eager to help with what they can.

An exciting beginning into the new era of the Elven Empire. Looking forward to more.

 

I hope you give this new series a chance. I promise, you will not be sorry.

There is a giveaway on The Reading Café blog, where you can read their review too.

My newest adventure in the book world

Hello and welcome!

As most of you know I am not  a bookworm, but a huge book dragon, and I have the cup to prove it too. 😀 thanks Becca for the decal! Good conversation starter…

bookDragon-cup.png

My latest adventure in the book world took me to London’s Ignite Your Soul Author Event and I had a blast. London, Ontario that is. When I posted on FB that I am going to London, everybody was so excited, until I told them it was not the one across the pond but 2-hour drive away, they called me a tease, not sure why 😛

banner.jpg

Check out the pictures posted on their website. This was their 4th year and my 2nd and every year they sponsor a local charity. This year it was the National Service Dogs who received the proceeds from the raffle and silent auction.

nsd-header-1920-2.jpg

I had the opportunity to add my contribution to it by adding various swag to the registration bags and also bringing three baskets with books and swag I had on hand from 3 generous authors: M. A. Abraham, Sharon Hamilton and Renea Mason and added my own little surprises to them. THANK YOU again ladies.

baskets.png

I updated my signing bag adding my own logo, what do you think?

myBag.png

… also made some fans to give out with one of my faves memes…

seelk-fan.jpg

Of course I went over my budget, it is the norm for me and my friends laugh when I tell them that I have a budget for books and ask why I even bother 😛 Here is my hoard from this signing. Carey Decevito‘s hunks are finally in my possession, I’ve been eyeing them since the Ottawa signing YUM

bookBought.jpg

I also got a few freebies which are always welcome, some will go on my signed treasures shelf and some will make their way into giveaways or care packages that I mail to friends. Thank you Kayleigh Malcolm for always looking out for me. Thanks go to Freya Barker who donated “Menu for Romance” & “Shaded with Love” for the giveaway on this post.

free.png

… and lots and lots of swag, fun stuff, sweet goodies and a few prezzies that were received along with book purchase.

swag.jpg

Amy Ruttan‘s duckies are so cute… R.K. Gleason‘s chocolate pops are a favourite and the red tentacle finger thingy almost disappeared in my son’s room, otherwise known as the black hole LOL ….  Emerald O’Brien‘s cup was a welcome gift and I know the perfect recipient for it too… the mini rubber man is a wine glass ornament and won it at Shannyn Leah‘s ‘poke a cup’ contest.

swagGoodies.png

I bought myself a t-shirt from Marianne Maguire because the one she gave me years ago is getting really tattered from so much use, the words on them crack me up…

bitchdraft.jpg

She is a riot and the time spent with her at the signing and the hours between the signing and the dinner afterward were well spent. We talked, laughed and got the inside scoop from her Otherworld, a world I happily immerse myself whenever I have the chance.

MM-tshirt.png

I also got myself a pair of fingerless gloves from Erin Cristofoli, impulse purchase for sure since I could make them myself. She has a page for her creations on FB, the Butterfly Kissed Crochet. Check it out, some really neat things are available for purchase.

gloves.png

I got to meet some new authors, sweet AW Clarke and his fire-cracker wife, they were also dinner companions, lots of laughter.

C.J. Lazar is another new author and I was so embarrassed because I was addressing his sister sitting at his side until she mentioned that the author is him *facepalm* He was gracious about it and laughed it off, but I think my face was all kinds of red at the time.

Another dinner companion was Elle Klass with her boyfriend, they came all the way from Florida. They were very entertaining. If you are into horror check out her books, they sound good and if you contact her, ask her about the audiobooks, tell her I sent you or let me know and I can get you connected 😉

Kayleigh Malcolm and her hubby were sitting at the table too and they were so entertaining as usual, loved seeing them again. She gives the best hugs.

Kendra Mei Chailyn is another one of my fave authors, a fun lady that is full of sunshine and smiles, she was joined by her sweet niece who gave me a naughty bag with all kinds of goodies… and no I will not show you what was in it, use your imagination… NAUGTHY imagination 😉 We danced our tushes of after the dinner and shared some laughs.

Do you know who is another awesome hugger? Zoe York! She is bubbly and energetic, you can’t help but like her. Her books are yummy, especially her naughty alter ego, Ainsley Booth. She was there too and bugged her about the book I am waiting for in paperback LOL

I tried to chat with everybody, buy at least one book from every attending author, paperback or ebooks on a stick. All in all it was a great event, kudos to authors
Crystal St. Clair & Erin Cristofoli and their awesome team of volunteers, looking forward to next year.

Now lets get to the best part. Sexy Mr. Random will pick a winner on Monday, October 16, 2017, from the comments to receive this bag, including a bracelet made by yours truly among books and swag. Tell me, if you had to pick one, what is your fave swag.
