Exciting News!

Mated in Treason has been contracted by Hartwood Publishing and is due to be released in June 2017! I am so excited to share this news and to be able to expand on the Kan Asma Vampire world. This new story delves deeper into the world of the vampire refugees first introduced in my Blood-Vine series. Mated in Treason looks into the deep sacrifices and intense fight it takes for a love match in a society that forbids emotion in a blood-bond. Stay tuned for cover reveal and opportunity for ARC reviews. I’m working diligently on the next book in this series, as well. I can’t wait for you to meet Gunnar and Nadia. She’s no vampire Cinderella and he’s Prince Charming’s Valet. To find their Happily Ever After it will take enduring hardships, fighting their societal laws and turning to their enemies. The consequences for falling in love are vast. Losing the chance to be together is not an option. If treason is their only hope, they will take it. Mated in Treason. Kan Asma Vampires Book 1–coming June 2017! Christa

Daily Writing and Goal Setting

I’m so lucky to be an author. Writing allows me to tap into my creativity. It stretches my mind. (It drives me bonkers.) I can do a writing binge and type my fingers off attempting to put everything whipping around inside my brain onto the page. But, I can also have terrible bouts of nothingness where words Just. Won’t. Happen.   At my local RWA meeting, we were asked to write a goal that we would try to reach by the end of three months. I chose a goal I think I can achieve which means I didn’t go for something easy and I didn’t reach too high for fear I might just give up. Do any of you feel like that when you set goals? via GIPHY So, this post is essentially my–> How I am going to achieve this goal (OHMYGOD what did I agree to do) list. 1st up: I will attempt to write 3 thousand words at least 5 days a week. Next. I will turn off the television/netflix/streaming/tablet– anything distracting– from ten in the morning until 2 in the afternoon. Also, I WILL NOT SELF EDIT each and every scene I write. Finally, I will … Continue reading

Kan Asma Christmas Tradition

Merry Christmas! Here is a little glimpse into the Kan Asma- style Christmas tradition. I hope you have a wonderful and merry Christmas day! ~ “It’s time for the blooding.” Mikhail launched from the second-floor banister and did a tight somersault landing on the main floor with hands up like a gymnast. The loud stomp of his boots echoed through the vaulted atrium as he rushing into the kitchen. “Who’s it going to be this year?” Lucas flashed his fangs. “Should we do a lottery or pull names from a hat?” Tray waved a long, serrated knife in the air.  “This should do the trick.” Anna slipped through the open doorway, her mate Dimitri right on her heels. “I’m partial to using fangs.” He winked but mostly just for Anna. Therese shook her head and backtracked through the kitchen moving through the crowded dining room to where her mate waited with a glass of sparkling wine. She sipped it and savored the sweet bubbly Moscato as it danced on her tongue. “You’d think they’d want presents and Christmas Carols. Instead, they are stuck in the middle ages, still.” Davran nuzzled her throat, a scrape of fang teasing along the pulse … Continue reading

When you type The End!

I did it! After a 5 year hiatus–thanks rebellious body– I have started a new series and finished two books in it. The Kan Asma Vampires series is going to be coming soon. This is an exciting moment for me. I feel almost giddy. These vampires are truly like my own family, minus the fangs and biting and stuff. A few things happened when I wrote those awesome words. First, there was EUPHORIA— via GIPHY Then there was a bit of PRIDE: via GIPHY I’m pretty sure I CONGRATULATED myself:     via GIPHY I felt a bit ADORING:   via GIPHY Then I got ready to start flexing my author muscles and begin the editing WORKOUT:   via GIPHY Then a little WORRY crept in: via GIPHY There might have been a little DOUBT floating around my thoughts: via GIPHY But I squelched that and got myself back to the YIPPEE I DID IT phase of finishing a novel (2 actually): via GIPHY Blurbs to come. And, hopefully, publishing details to follow soon! Christa

Inspiring Myself: Day 3

Well, I am still working on the scene from yesterday. I spent a lot of time searching for images and not as much time writing. Before I knew it, my kids were home from school and the afternoon rush had begun. So today I am not going to go overboard on the image searches. I will only search for one photo and it will be my proverbial carrot to finish the scene I am working on. This “carrot” is going to be highly sensual and embody the scene that comes next. It involves a tight space. A wall. And the romantic couple engaged in something sensual. (This should be easy. Easier if I turn off safe search mode, too. Probably could be time consuming. Okay must limit myself to searching for only 15 minutes. Right now it is 12:02. I have until exactly 12:17 to get this post done and back to writing.) Ready. Set. Go……             Oh and because I am nice, here’s a bonus picture:     Okay. Now I really have to get back to the scene at hand, erm, I mean, the scene I’m writing. Share your sensual wall kiss images … Continue reading

Inspiring Myself Day 2

Wow, yesterday’s inspiration seems to have done the trick. I wrote 7 pages and finished the scene that so needed completing. Mind over matter? Or Subject matter over mind? Hmm. Today we must think of inspiration for one of two scenes. There’s dastardly and bad. And, there’s naughty and sensual. The romance author in me wants to go look at pretty sensual photos of a couple in complete abandon. The realist in me says get to the difficult stuff, first, then you can play. So, as I drag my feet to Google Image Land, I reluctantly decide we must search for the bad stuff. Search Tags: Eerie parking garage, man in the shadows, daybreak–hey that’s a no-go for vampires, evil bad guy (who is sexy), men in suits talking–that can be sexy too… Alright, now on to the searches. Like yesterday I will post my top favorites and get to writing. On my first try, Google rewrote my search as Erie Parking Garage. Nope Google. We are not in the Midwest here. We are in Los Angeles. I want eerie. Scratch eerie. Only a few popped up and they were all copyrighted. So, changed search to “scary.” Seems a lot … Continue reading
