Book Signing!

I had my first ever in life, real, honest to goodness book signing yesterday! It was a hoot! Fellow EC author and friend, Lise Fuller, put the whole shindig together (she’s fabulous, ya’ll!) I also met Cobblestone Press author, Diana Bold, who joined us in creating all kinds of mayhem.

We got together at Beth Anne’s Book Corner in Colorado Springs. I tell you, the independent book stores really have our backs. They simply love for authors to come and hang out at the shops and talk to the patrons. And eat lemon cake…and german chocolate cake. Even the lady from the Baskin Robins ice cream store next door came over bearing goodies.

We even met a guy who makes, yes MAKES by hand, chain mail armor. We got some really good pictures, too. I’ll post ’em here…as soon as I figure out how to get them off the camera!

I left my house Saturday morning with a big, heavy box full of card decks, book marks and, of course, books, including bunches of copies of CARINIAN’S SEEKER, WILD WINTER and FERAL FASCINATION. When I got home, I carried only 4 books into the house. Sold out of Carinian’s Seeker (no surprise there, boy I love that book) and almost all the others.

Not bad for a first book signing! I hope all the others (which have yet to be scheduled, heh-heh) go just as well.

Pictures coming…and no laughing at my chipmunk cheeks!

For two Seekers of justice, hunting rogues is dangerous business. But not as dangerous as their yearning for each other.

There’s a rogue on the loose, and the Vampire Council of Ethics has just the man for the job. Alaan Serati, along with his team of elite fighters, is a Seeker for the V.C.O.E. The lethal vampire law enforcement assassin is also the most eligible bachelor of Clan Serati. His job: Take out the rogue vampire who killed his mate years ago. But working with a fellow Seeker quickly becomes a pain in his backside. How is he supposed to accomplish the mission if he can’t keep his mind or his hands off of his fellow officer?

For more years than she wants to remember, Tameth Serati-Cole has worked almost every day, side by side, with the gruff and gorgeous Alaan. It’s been hell considering the special bond between them, something rarely developed between mates. But Alaan doesn’t really want her. He’s still pining away for the woman taken from him years ago. So when he declares his need to bond with her, this lady Seeker ain’t biting…even if she’s wanted to since the day they met.

Reviews

Serati’s Flame is the second book in T.J. Michael’s Vampire Council series. It is hard to believe but it is even better than the first. The struggles that Alaan faces while trying to maintain his distance from Tamath when they are forced to work as a team make for some intriguing reading. Tamath is great as a female lead. Independent and focused, she has longed for Alaan for years but he can’t see past his lust for revenge to realize that she is the one for him. The title is very apt due to the highly flammable interactions between Alaan and Tamath. Whether they are fighting or ripping off each others clothes it is hot, hot, hot! This story has a great plot filled with action balanced by sizzling sex scenes makes for one great read. Tamath and Alaan are well suited to each other with their Alpha personalities clashing to make for a highly exciting ride. Their biting comments to one another make for a humorous read as well. What more do you need, humor, hot men, vampires, and a strong alpha female? Nothing! This book fills all those needs.

This fantastic story is just as good and dangerously exciting as its predecessor. This plot will fulfill your gratification for scorching, hot sexual encounters all while satisfying your hunger for non-stop action. Alaan and Tamath are the perfect mates for each other – both are persistent, strong-minded and have alpha-type personalities. These combinations make for some electrifying interactions between the couple both in sexual and combat arenas. Readers, you will not be disappointed with this flaming novel. I, for one, am eagerly looking forward to Ms. Michael next wildly, thrilling book within the Vampire Council of Ethics series.

xPost – Today is the Big Day!

For more than one reason.

First off – HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Make it an awesome day with that someone special. And if you don’t have a someone special (like me) just take a second look. We single gals might not have a bed warmer, but we do have friends and family that love us and we love in turn. Make them your Valentine. My kids don’t know it yet, but they’re going to be my Valentine’s, complete with goodies and lots of chocolate.
