Valentine's Update - Horny Werewolves Abound!

It's that time of year again! The time romance authors both dread and adore! Yes, that's right... Valentine's Day. The day people celebrate a beheaded Christian Saint by either embracing love, or by cursing it! Personally, I like to call it "Horny Werewolf Day," because of its association of Lupercalia, the Wolf Festival celebrated on February 15th in Ancient Rome...and I totally stole that from Warren Ellis, who called it a holiday of "werewolves, blood, and fucking!" Which, let's face it, is probably more my speed. Regardless, Happy Horny Werewolf Day! Okay, been a few weeks since I've given y'all an update, so let's catch up!


New/Recent Releases First, a new release, just in time for Valentine's Day/Lupercalia (Available Now)!!!

Valentine Between the Sheets:

A Reverse Harem Anthology of Stories that Get to the Point!

Roses are red Violets are blue We have a special Valentine treat for you

Between the sheets is where you’ll fall Why choose one When you can have them all?

Each story promises a complete read, whether or not you've read the books they might be tied to. You won't be left wanting this Valentine's Day, as each author has made sure you'll be enchanted by never before read novellas and novelettes.





My contribution to this anthology is: Artificial Integrations: Valentina's Day (A Psijinx Story)

For a decade, she was little more than a virtual ghost, hidden within the complex programming of the ship, watching, waiting, growing more self-aware…and falling hopelessly for the four pirates who have made her vessel their home; even if they believed she was nothing more than the vessel’s Artificial Intelligence.


When an activation sequence from her creator awakens her fully, and she emerges from the hidden depths of the ship with a fully functional bioorganic body, she knows she must return to her creator in order to fulfill her original primary objective. However, she has a new primary objective now—claim the pirates who claimed her.


Valentina has awakened and the universe will never be the same!


Valentina was fun to write! She's an artificial intelligence downloaded into a physical body called a "Persona" (yes, I avoided using Avatar on purpose, because...well, obviously) and immediately gets claimed by the four "Alpha" leaders of the mercenary/pirate band that owns her ship. While not my first sci fi story...that was technically ELF Omegas...this is the first introduction to my massive, sprawling space opera series, PSIJINX, that I hope to unleash later this year!

Currently Under the Pen

I have two sequels that I'm currently frantically working on! I keep bouncing between the two of them, because I want to get them both finished, and let me tell you - my head's getting a bit crowded with all the voices actively shouting to be heard!

First, I'm working on Sapphire Sorrow, book 3 of The Dwellers Below. Things have taken a turn for the worse for our intrepid heroine and her not-so-heroic Fomoire.


One of the Fomoire has lost everything (or so he thinks) and it's going to be up to Patricia to help get him back from the brink. She's also going to have to stake her own claim on another of her males before someone else does! There's also going to be a potential one-off spin-off hinted at in this one, a story that I've been gagging to tell for awhile, but just haven't found the right time for it... well, that time is almost anon! I hope to have this one out end of February/early March, and I'm planning a surprise for Saint Patrick's Day to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Patricia and the Dwellers, if I can swing it! Stay Tuned! The second sequel I'm frantically working on this month is the final book of the Cœur de Lyon: A Renaissance Flair opening series. Yep, that's right... finally!

A Wolf in Period Clothing has been spinning around my head for over a year now, and it's finally time I combine two of my favorite things: Werewolves + Kilts! This book reacquaints us with Athena, a pixie introduced in My Faire Lord, as well as introduces us to a Clan of Misfit Scottish Werewolves! As with the other books, you can expect tongue-in-cheeky humor, plenty of hot and steamy romance, and a few answers to questions that have lingered since book 1! I'm eyeballing April for this one. After this, I'll periodically release standalones at the Faire when the inspiration hits me! I have a few more couples I need to provide happily ever afters for, after all!

My Confirmed Hit List

Okay, so ever since I was a young teenager, my "to do lists" were called Hit Lists, which amused teenage me to no friggin' end because of my Sicilian heritage (although I often proclaim my half-Irish heritage, I'm also a quarter-Sicilian and a quarter-Swiss on my mother's side, just for clarification). Anyways, I thought I'd go ahead and give y'all some peeks at projects that are in the works and confirmed to come out. First, as you know, I've been participating in the Between the Sheets Reverse Harem Erotica anthologies. There was "Alabaster's Gift" in Holidays Between the Sheets, which I'll be re-releasing here shortly, prior to the release of the first full-length Kryptic Tale novel (which I don't have a cover for yet, so not ready to announce it). Then, of course, released this month was "Artificial Integrations: Valentina's Day" for Valentine Between the Sheets, which is available now!

I'm extremely excited about the next anthology, and my contribution!


The anthology is dystopian/post-apocalyptic themed, Ruined Between the Sheets, releasing on my birthday, June 15th! As soon as a preorder link goes live, I'll announce it and then probably have like a HUGEnormous release day party to celebrate! The reason I'm so excited for this one, besides the fact that it's releasing on my birthday, is because of the story I have planned for it! The story is going to be an introduction to my new dystopian-paranormal Omegaverse series, Omega Apocrypha!


The cover is below, which I teased in my group and on my graphic design page (and I have to admit, it's currently my favorite cover...), but for the first time ever, also going to share the blurb with y'all, and discuss some background on the upcoming series!

Lilith: The First Omega

Omega Apocrypha prequel novella


They called her Lilith. Cast out of Eden and sent to Earth as punishment for her sins, they expected her to die. She had other plans.


From among the other outcasts sent to Earth, she has found the six most powerful, inhuman males and brought them together for one purpose – to summon forth Ragnarök and turn the Earth into a new Dark Eden of her own design.


Heaven and Hell shall fall, God and Lucifer shall both be overthrown, and she shall rise as the Queen of the Fallen.


But in order to rule, she must first submit, and that may be the most difficult task of all.


The Apocalypse is Coming… but only after Lilith does!


Lilith: The First Omega is a prequel novella to the dark Omegaverse series, Omega Apocrypha. While the story takes place centuries before the series begins, every Ending must first have its Beginning, just as every Omega needs an Alpha.

Okay, so Omega Apocrypha...man, I cannot wait to start this series! It all begins with Lilith, and yes, it's a prequel novella...it's going to be erotic and hawt, after all, I mentally dubbed it "The Gang Bang To Cause the Big Bang!" It's how this world ends, and how the world of the Omegas springs forth. The series will be darker than anything I've written before, more Gothic in feel, and it won't be for everyone... I mean, of course it's going to have some of my trademarked snark in it, but probably more of a twisted humor, since I'm going for DARKEST OF DARKS here! It'll range from Menage and Reverse Harem through Poly, MM, and everything between and betwixt! There will be dubcon, noncon, blood, violence, BDSM, and kinks galore, all in a full-color, paranormal dystopian world! Each book will be a standalone!


Yes, that's right. Completely standalone. Shared world. Some minor shared characters and crossovers. And, by the end of this year... there will be a novella and three full-length novels in this world. That's right. Not playing with this world. The stories are already plotted, planned, and each one will be part of an anthology, which means I have deadlines and people keeping me honest and on-track! You're either going to love them or hate them...but here's hoping for the best!

SECRET PROJECTS

I have a couple of secret projects lined up for this year, because of course I do! Some have been in the works for awhile now, others are new opportunities that I've pounced on! Unfortunately, none of them are quite ready to be revealed! I had to redo my plans for the year based on a few things that have come up, which required me to do some juggling in order to make time for projects that I'm passionate about. Likewise, I've had to take a long, hard look at my current series and realize that none of them are exactly taking off. I'm not planning on abandoning any of them, they've just become a lower priority while I work on those things that I hope will end up resonating - and will support my writing career. I'll update y'all as things progress and are ready to be revealed! I've got some other things I want to talk about, but I'll cover those in future blog posts! Some upcoming topics: * Excerpts from Works in Progress

* Books I'm Reading & Adoring

* Surprise Appearance Announcement Before I sign off, however, I do have an announcement! LOOKING FOR ALPHA READERS & ARC REVIEWERS!!! Interested? Follow this link and fill out the form! ARC Reviewer / Alpha Reader Form


Okay, thinks that's enough blathering for one day! Cheers & Mahalo, Y'all! Chris "C.A." Storm
