More Scary Kisses, the paranormal romance anthology edited by Liz Gryzb and published by Ticonderoga is now available in a Kindle edition. For only US$4.99! It contains a short story of mine called “Frostbitten” — which is definitely more scary than kissy — among a stellar line up of new work by Australian authors, including Felicity Dowker, Nicole R. Murphy and Martin Livings.
Vampires and fairies, werwolves and wizards, oh my!
So if you don’t already have the very pretty paperback — or if you also like to grab a handy e-book edition — head on over to Amazon now.
There’s a very nice review of the More Scary Kisses anthology, edited by Liz Grzyb, over at Publisher’s Weekly:
Talent shines in this beguiling collection of 17 paranormal romance stories from Down Under, many of which are more haunting and humorous than scary. Mr. Darcy of Pride and Prejudice takes a turn as a barbaric demon slayer in Fraser Sherman’s “The Sword of Darcy,” while a sugar-crazed cherub does his best to reunite two lovers in Nicole R. Murphy’s “The Protector’s Last Mission.” A telepathic tentacle monster reluctantly wedded to a human woman finds a way toward happy-ever-after in Liz Coley’s “Marriage of Convenience.” On the creepier end, both Felicity Dowker’s “Berries and Incense” and Kirstyn McDermott’s “Frostbitten” will leave readers with chills. Martin Livings and Talie Helene close the anthology with “The Last Gig of Jimmy Rucker,” a brilliantly hypnotizing and heartwarming tale. Readers will be delighted by this introduction to some of Australia’s best paranormal romance writers.
Look! Creepy! Chills! 🙂
Publisher’s Weekly also reviews Dead Red Heart, a second anthology forthcoming from Ticonderoga Publications. Both books will be launched at SwanCon this Easter so, if you’re coming to the convention, please drop by and say hello.
I’m locked in the bunker trying to get my second novel finished over the next couple of months, but the release of this cover from More Scary Kisses was too beautiful not to post. Not only do I have a short story in the forthcoming anthology but so does my beloved husband, Jason Nahrung. Our first shard TOC . . . all together now: aaawww!
