Drawn In by Krista Ames ~ A Cursed All Hallows' Eve Author Spotlight Interview @kristaames #CursedHallowsEve

 

 


Blurb:

Archer Danvers was destined to be alone for the rest of his long, unending time on earth. He’d carved out a good life, but it was lonely. That is, until Mia Blackwood blew in like a hurricane and needed to be rescued.

The pull between them was undeniable.

 Other immortals want her, but he has to have her. There’s a mysterious connection between them and he won’t let her go. His life was about to change in more ways than he could even know.




Excerpt:

“Another quiet night. Please end the misery.”

Why wasn’t he used to it by now? He should be glad there wasn’t upheaval. Then he’d feel obligated to get involved. Protect those needing protection. It was his neighborhood, after all. Humans were frailer than they realized.

Archer rested his fingers on the spots nearest his temple where his tension pulsated. It wasn’t as if the undead could feel their blood pressure rise but he knew from when he’d been alive years ago that those were the target areas. And who knew, anyway? Vampires had made great strides in evolving over the last few hundred years.

He was just frustrated.

He looked on from his balcony as the city slept. He didn’t care about the humans much—anymore—as he’d made a life of blood-in-a-bag or the occasional run in the nearby woods to satisfy the more basic, primal needs. He did, however, like to go mostly unnoticed among them and even had a human friend or two.

He wasn’t like the others anymore. He’d grown tired of the all-night bar life and the string of girls traipsing through his bedroom every night. He wanted to be a homebody, to be as normal as he could be and wished there were someone to share his never-ending life. He simply wasn’t attracted to any of the women like him. They had an air about them, like they were better than the rest, just because they were going to live forever.

And, unfortunately, searching for a life partner outside of his own species didn’t really constitute as a life partner. At least one that would live as long as him. And after so many years, the thought of turning someone no longer appealed to him, either. There were enough immortal in the world and who was to say it was his decision to make more. 

So, basically…he was just complaining.

After a long intake of the night air, and a deep exhale, he turned to leave his  balcony, same as every other night, he caught the smell. It was undeniably strong and unmistakable and gone again in a flash. 

It was fear.

Not just your everyday fear though, but a shaking terror.

Another human perhaps? But why was this one calling to his inner immortal all of the sudden? He’d learned to block them out years ago. So why wasn’t it working now?

Struggling with the decision, he stood for several seconds with his back to the city, wondering if he should … deciding that he shouldn’t … but turning to look anyway. As his hands gripped the railing, the keen vampire night vision he’d been blessed with focused on the streets below. However, he saw no one. At this hour of the night, most humans were safely tucked away in their beds. Then why was it he couldn’t walk away?

He stood with his eyes closed to focus on the fear he could feel all the way to his soul. Its body shaking. Its heart beating erratically. Its quiet whimpers.

It was hiding.

It wasn’t his responsibility.

It was female.

Damn it.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW


Hello and welcome, readers! We have Krista Ames here with us today. Krista, thanks for visiting us.

Krista:  It’s my pleasure, thanks so much for having me!


How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

I suppose I’ve been dabbling at being a writer for 12 or 13 years now.

I was a heavy reader back then and after reading one of my favorite authors for the millionth time, I just decided that it was something I wanted to try so I did.


Tell us about your title featured in: A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve

My title is called DRAWN IN and it is about a vampire who had more or less become familiar with his unending existence even if it was a little lonely but then one Halloween night, there was something—different in the air…he could hear it even though there was no sound. He could sense something out there and he went in search of it…it had drawn him in. 

It ended up being a piece of his existence he never knew he needed…and he couldn’t go on without her.


How did you come up with the storyline?

Honestly, I’m not sure how I came up with it. As with most of the stories I write, they just pop in my head from something I’ve seen or read or even watched.


What inspires you to write?

Lots of things inspire me, it’s not any one given thing. It could be a song or a movie, or even a sign along the road believe it or not. Just never know where it’ll come from.

Malediction by Erzabet Bishop ~ A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve Author Spotlight Interview @ErzabetBishop #witch #Salem #Halloween #party #wolves #curse #magic #curseworkerseries #shifters#CursedHallowsEve

 

 


Blurb:

It’s witchcraft…

Nestled in the shadowy thoroughfares of Salem, Bridget has created a new life for herself. Saved from the noose by the mysterious Mr. Black during the witch trials, she runs Broomstix, a thriving curse worker and hex shop. Dangerous cravings thrust her back in harm’s way as evil stalks the streets. Will the allure of the forbidden be her curse or her salvation?


Alistair is a wolf caught between desire and duty to his pack. His Alpha goes missing and evidence of arcane magic and murder come a little too close to home. A chance encounter at a Halloween party brings his beast to the forefront and one night of passion leaves him wanting much, much more.


A war is brewing in Salem between the wolves and witch kind. When more deaths are found linked to rogue wolves, the two join forces, but wild magic reigns on Samhain and the moon may just have a mind of her own…



Excerpt:


Chapter Four

Bridget stood at the entrance to the Hawthorn Hotel, fidgeting with her cranberry red skirts. She’d bypassed the Witch’s Ball for the first time in a decade, instead opting for the Hawthorne Hotel Halloween Gala the following night. The Seven Deadly Sins theme fit a little bit better with her state of mind these days. 

The thought of going to the Witch’s Ball and being surrounded by a room full of people dressed as the white rabbit or the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland made her want to close herself in her apartment above Broomstix and stay there till the season passed. Not this witch. Hells no. Not this year.

Limousines and expensive cars queued up at the entrance through the valet parking area. The red carpet to the entry door was packed with women in brightly colored gowns and glittering jewelry. Men in tuxedos held out their arms, and Bridget thought it was just the thing to get her out of the witchy politics of her everyday life.

When she’d stepped in front of the mirror after trying on the dress her best friend and fellow witch Isabel had chosen for her, she’d almost feigned a case of the flu. Except, she didn’t get sick and Isabel knew it.

“Put the dress on. And yes, the shoes too.”

Long and flowing, the dress was made for a woman with moderate assets on top, not the ones she was blessed with. They had long been a source of fascination for the various men in her life, and the undoubted reason for many of the shadowy curses carved into her body. And the heels… goddess but they were fuck me shoes and she’d be lucky if she got through the night without either breaking her ankle or falling on someone—or for them.

The shoes could be enchanted. It had happened before. Bridget knew Isabel just wanted to make sure she went out and actually had a good time, but the thought niggled. She shot her a glance.

“Did you?”

“Did I what?” 

“Spell the shoes.” 

“Would you stop that?” Her best friend frowned, grabbing at her hands. “You’re supposed to be Lust. Not anxiety.”

“What? Anxiety isn’t one of the seven deadlies.”

“Are you sure? Cause, I’m thinking it should be.” Isabel narrowed her eyes, witch fire glimmering in their depths.

“Okay… okay. But, if I find out you did…”

“Yeah, you’ll curse me. I know. How long have we known each other?” Isabel arched an elegant eyebrow in her direction.

True. 

“What did you say your costume was again?” Bridget eyed the gorgeous dress and sidled beneath the large green overhang, avoiding the spit of October rain that decided to make an appearance. 

“I didn’t,” Isabel smirked. “But, I’m Envy. Don’t you love it?”

Hers to Bear by C.D. Gorri ~ A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve Author Spotlight Interview @cgor22 #PNR #BearShifterRomance #FatedMates #CDGorriBooks #BarvaleHolidayTales #ShifterFatedMates #ShifterHolidayTales #ShifterMateRomanceSeries #shiftermateholidayromance #CursedHallowsEve

 


Blurb:

Barvale might be home to one of the biggest Bear Shifter Clans in the entire continent of North America, but shhhh…it’s a secret!

“Crazy” Maisy Daniels couldn’t leave Barvale fast enough after high school. She’d earned that hated nickname after telling her classmates she’d seen a boy change into a Bear just behind the football field! A social pariah and the butt of every joke in her grade, it was no wonder she’d promised herself to never step foot in that godforsaken town again.

But when her dad has emergency surgery, who else can help? Maisy returns home to find things are a mess. The tractor is broken and there are only a few hours until the Daniels Farm Annual Haunted Halloween Hay Ride & Spooky Soiree begins. Unfortunately, the only repair shop open belongs to the bane of her high school days, Arthur Lance himself. It’s time for Maisy to just grin and bear it!

Arthur Lance just opened his third full service garage and automotive repair shop in his hometown of Barvale, New Jersey. Business was going great, but his Bear wasn’t satisfied with a job well done. The silly animal was still pining for the one who got away back in high school. Burying himself in work was the only thing he could do to keep his beast placated and his human side sane.

Maybe his fate is to be alone as punishment for hurting the only female he’d ever wanted? His Bear can’t stand the thought. He’s stuck at work on Mischief Night, when to his surprise he gets a frantic call from Maisy Daniels herself. Finally, Arthur has another chance.

Will Maisy accept him as her fated mate when he finally reveals the truth?


Excerpt: 

Her eyes widened when she saw what Arthur was about to do, but wild horses couldn’t make Maisy look away as he pulled his sweatshirt over his head to reveal smooth, bronzed skin. He seemed to be sweating, and he grunted like he was in pain, grimacing and gritting his teeth hard before pushing down his pants. She covered her mouth with her hands.

It wasn’t that she was seeing a naked boy for the first time that had her so freaked out. Or the fact that said naked boy was one she’d often daydreamed about. Nope. None of that was as frightening as what had happened right before her eyes.

Arthur Lance, high school royalty, had crouched down on all fours, panting and groaning, wait, was he growling? Holy smokes! Yes, he was growling. He was like some kind of wild animal. Maisy gasped as she realized he was getting bigger, and bigger, and, oh goodness, furrier. She bit back a scream when he stopped writhing and grunting. The enormous, dark creature that was Arthur Lance turned his glittering black eyes on her and chuffed out a cloud of warm breath in the cool night air.

Holy crap! The boy she’d been crushin’ on had just turned into a Bear!

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Hello and welcome, readers! We have C.D. Gorri here with us today. C.D. Gorri, thanks for visiting us.

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

Thank you so much for having me! I began publishing in 2014, but I have always wanted to be a writer. I went to school for English Lit and Creative Writing, but I have been a doodler and dabbler for years. Raising my children was very important to me so I waited until the youngest was school aged before setting about to get published. This is basically my dream come true. 


Tell us about your title featured in: A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve

Hers to Bear is the second in my Barvale Holiday Tales. The Barvale Clan is made up mainly of Black Bear Shifters in the fictional South Jersey town of Barvale, which literally means Bear Valley. Maisy left her hometown after being bullied in high school for claiming to see a boy turn into a bear, only to return years later to help her dad with their farm and wouldn’t you know it, that same boy still lives there! Halloween is a time for all sorts of magic, wouldn’t you say? Maybe even the kind that brings fated mates together.


How did you come up with the storyline?

This is a spinoff series of my Bear Claw Tales and Barvale Clan Tales which feature the Bear Shifters of Barvale and their mates. I wrote a Christmas short over the summer and knew immediately when I saw this anthology that I would write another one of these holiday shorts for this set. My story is lighthearted, romantic, and most of all, fun.


What inspires you to write?

Inspiration comes from so many sources for me. I find it in my husband, my children, a song, the tiny little day to day nothings that a million people go through but for some reason get stuck in my head. Hopefully I don’t foul it up too much when I put ink to my ideas.  


Tell us about your other books:

I started out writing Young Adult Urban Fantasy which then developed into Paranormal Romance. Now with over fifty titles published, I have to say I can’t even imagine a time when I won’t be writing. Most of my books are set in the same paranormal world and mainly take place in my home state of New Jersey. I call it the Grazi Kelly Universe in honor of my first heroine, Maria Graziana Kelly aka Grazi (grah-tzee). Characters and creatures overlap, but each series can be read alone.

Sometimes, I get to play in other authors' worlds and each experience has been unique and has enabled me to write a broader cast of characters and scenarios. My thanks to those wonderful authors who opened the doors and let me in! You can find me in MT Worlds and Evel Worlds.

I like to write sizzling Shifter romance books that are sexy and fast-paced with epic heroes, sassy heroines, and guaranteed happy endings for all!

The Ghost of Morley Manor by Tricia Schneider ~ A Cursed All Hallows' Eve Author Spotlight Interview @TriciaSchneider #pnr #paranormalromance #gothic #gothicromance #ghost #ghostromance #spirits #spells #magic #Halloween #CursedHallowsEve

 

 



Blurb:


When Alice Worthington’s father dies, he leaves Morley Manor and all his debt to her and her younger brother. Desperate to find a way to pay the creditors, Alice performs a séance to contact the spirit of the last man to have seen the jewels rumored to be hidden within her home.

Sir Nicholas, a two-hundred-year-old roguish ghost, strikes a bargain with Alice. Find his earthly remains and bury them in consecrated ground. Only then will he reveal the location of the hidden jewels. Alice agrees not knowing when the time comes, she must decide between saving her home or saving the soul of the charming ghost who haunts Morley Manor.





Excerpt:


A scream tore into the night, a high-pitched, frightening sound that sent shivers coursing down my spine. I scrambled back against the headboard of my bed, gripping my candlestick and gasping for breath. As I struggled to breathe, I realized those were my chilling screams.

I stopped screaming and faced the man, raising my candlestick in front of me like a shield.

“Come no closer, demon!”

“You can hear me?” A look of wonder passed over his handsome face. His eyes widened. “You can see me?”

“Of course, I can!”

“But how?” The man glanced around the room as if searching for the answer. “How can this be? No one alive has seen me for over two hundred years!”

“Begone from my chamber!” I shouted and my voice trembled with fear. “Leave me in peace!”

“This makes no sense at all.” He continued his dialogue, ignoring my rising panic. He stood and began pacing at the end of the bed. My eyes widened as I witnessed him walk through the edge of the bed a time or two as he was so absorbed in his thoughts, he failed to see in which direction he walked.

“You had no awareness of me before you left this night. What changed?” He lifted his head and turned to face me. “What did you do when you left Morley tonight? What happened to you?”

“I—I—”

My stammering annoyed him. He leaned over the bed, resting his fisted hands against my feet. I could feel his weight as he leaned onto the mattress.

“Tell me, woman! I must know!”

I whimpered and struggled away from him, trying to meld myself into the headboard. I glanced over his shoulder, judging the distance between myself and the door, wondering if I was fast enough to run by him. Wondering if I was brave enough to try.

“Ah,” the specter said, for I knew he was no mere man. He was a ghost, a demon, a creature not of this world, for whom on this plane of existence could pass through solid objects.

“I see I’ve startled you.” He stood and raised outstretched hands before him as if he placated a frightened animal. “I will not harm you. I cannot. I have no mortal flesh. I cannot touch you. 
Observe…”

He reached toward me, placing his icy fingers on the hand holding the candlestick. I say icy fingers because I felt the press of them firmly against my skin, a solid enough touch for a specter.

He gasped.

I looked to his face and if I were not so full of fright, I might have found amusement to witness the color drain from his face. Did ghosts grow pale as humans when in a state of bewilderment?

He stumbled back, staring at his hand.

“What sorcery is this?” He whispered. “What did you do this night?”

“I… I…” I licked my suddenly dry lips so I could speak. “I attempted to summon the spirit of Sir Nicholas Weatherby.” I might as well be truthful while speaking with a ghost. After all, how could he condemn me when he, himself, was dead?

“Sir Nicholas Weatherby?” he repeated, his eyes wide. “I am Nicholas Weatherby.”

AUTHOR INTERVIEW


Hello and welcome, readers! We have Tricia Schneider here with us today. Tricia Schneider, thanks for visiting us.

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

I've been writing for about twenty-five years since I was 15 years old, but I've only been a published author for the last ten years. I began writing for fun. I was a kid looking to entertain myself. My brother and I used to create our own newspaper and forced our family members to subscribe. We'd include outlandish articles which now kind of reminds me of The Onion! As a kid, I also wrote a series of short stories about my brother's pet turtle called, The Adventures of Gonzo the Turtle. That turtle was quite a hero, saving the forest and the lives of the other animals.   

Tell us about your title featured in: A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve

I've been a fan of gothic romance since I was a kid watching Dark Shadows re-runs with my mom. It was one of her favorite shows and has influenced a lot of my writing. In my twenties, I discovered Jane Erye, Rebecca and a long list of Victoria Holt novels. The Ghost of Morley Manor is a gothic romance featuring a penniless heroine who is desperate to find a way to keep her home and her brother safe. She resorts to summoning a ghost who might tell her the location of the hidden jewels that are rumored to be stashed somewhere in her home.

How did you come up with the storyline?

The story started from a writing prompt challenge several years ago about setting a story in a graveyard. My scene began with the heroine and her brother traipsing into the graveyard to conduct a seance and the story grew after that. 

What inspires you to write?

I have an inner drive to tell stories. I can't explain it. It's part of my DNA, I think! But, my children inspire me to publish those stories. I want to teach them to pursue their dreams and what better way to do that than by pursuing my own?

Tell us about your other books:

All of my books are in the romance genre. I require a happily-ever-after with the books I both read and write. Heat levels vary from sweet to steamy and I've written short stories, novellas and novels. The romances I write are primarily paranormal, but also I write romances that are historical, gothic, fantasy, and sci-fi.

Tricks, Treats, & Trials By Fire by Sapphire Winters ~ A Cursed All Hallows' Eve Author Spotlight Interview #pnr #steamy #witches #werewolves #magic #fatedmates #paranormalromance #wolfshifter #magicalmates #foreverlove #CursedHallowsEve

 


Blurb:

It's All Hallow's Eve, and Andrea Ralowski is ready to get over her ex and live it up and let it go down at her town's masquerade ball. 

But the sleepy little town of Briarwood Hollow just outside Salem is hiding more behind its masks than Andrea knows. Turns out the werewolf she got her howls on with is literally a werewolf and now alpha Rex Rivers wants to make her one too as his fated mate. But it's her choice. After all, he says, someone like her could become too powerful once bitten...

As cryptic as that is, it prompts her to dive into her past, sure her life couldn't get weirder than a predestined wolf man mate... but it does. She learns that she doesn't just have a little magic in her past, but a lot. The kind that got her ancestors burned and could make things around Briarwood a little hot for her too. 



Excerpt:

“You need to realize that I’m not a shifter and I don’t abide by your shifter rules.”

“You’ll abide by whatever I say,” he says. His voice is grouchy, and the words come out through a growl.

I close my eyes. I’m not supposed to react this way. I’m not supposed to like him talking to me like this.

But I do.

God, I do.

“You aren’t the boss of me, Rex.” I force my eyes open, only to realize he’s closer to me. Too close. Our bodies are inches away from each other, like we’re magnets just waiting to attach to each other. “You don’t get to tell me what to do.”

“I hate to break it to you, sweetheart,” he says, tilting his head down so his lips are so close to mine, “but you belong to me. Every inch of yours is mine. And I’ll prove it.”

With that, he lunges for me.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW


Hello and welcome, readers! We have SAPPHIRE WINTERS here with us today. SAPPHIRE, thanks for visiting us.


How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?

I haven’t been a writer very long. I started on fan fiction in 2018 and when 2020 took a turn for the worst I decided to create my own worlds through writing. 


Tell us about your title featured in: A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve

It’s HOT and I mean scorching hot. Andrea and Rex steam up the pages as they learn all about each other and their powers.


How did you come up with the storyline? 

As cliché as it sounds, it came to me in a dream… just bits and pieces of course but it was enough to create a mini outline and go from there.


Tell us about your other books: 

I’m currently have a phoenix shifter book out now and she meets a shifter hunter, its amazing, if I do say so myself ;) I am working on a gentlemans club/ BDSM shifter series that I’m super excited about.


Where can readers find you?

I'm so excited to announce that RIDING WITH WARRIORS Book Three is now live, go, run, grab your copy and reach the climax of this trilogy with Mahpee, Hinto and Yas.








Alone. Exhausted. Hunted...Found.

Alice Bennett's situation couldn't be worse, but that's not going to stop her fighting. She has a plan - a plan to escape the cruel man leading her wagon train and survive alone in the mountain wilderness.

She has skills, a few supplies, and a loyal horse. But life is about more than just staying alive, and when a mysterious and handsome local with a proud, passionate glint in his eyes and an affinity with the forest shows up she is as captivated as she is terrified.

And then she meets his warrior friends!

Tensions soar. Desires flare. Jealousy rears. Can Alice handle the fierce determination of the men promising to protect her? Will her spirit ever truly belong with the people who've welcomed her into their lives? And will the love of three Chochmi warriors be her true salvation?

ON SALE at #99c - DANGEROUS TO KNOW By Lily Harlem #erotica #fantasy #suspense #notromantic

 

 ON SALE



My one piece of pure erotica, DANGEROUS TO KNOW, is on sale this week at 0.99 (usually it's 2.99). So if pure filth, whore fantasy and dangerous liaisons are your thing, take a trip to the dark side! Notice I've put a warning at the end of the information!

AMAZON US

AMAZON UK

(sorry, they're the only two Amazon sites that are on sale)


ABOUT 


For too many years I've hidden a sinful, erotic craving in the darkest corner of my soul. Within this deeply buried sliver, shameful fantasies rule and images--seedy, degrading, filthy images--burn through the dark of night and hold my dreams hostage.


Luckily, the center of my whore obsession is keen to play my slutty game. I know nothing about him, other than his taste, touch and smell, but that's how I want it, because of one thing I'm certain--this man is dangerous to know. But despite the risks, in the very heart of New York, in open view, I'll tempt him with my wares, show him my skills and prove I'm up for the job.


Please note this book was previously published with different cover art. Also if you're looking for romance and a happy ever after, this isn't the book for you, it's pure erotica.
