Courtship of the Vampyres

Courtship of the Vampyres

Awakening before the setting sun,
Desire burning for my Promised One.
Longing to embrace you under the light of the Moon,
To drink our fill of each other until the dawn.
Your smile alone is enough to make me swoon.

The veil of darkness at last falls,
Allowing me to pass through these damp, lonely halls.
Our home is cold and dark without you by my side,
But not for much longer.
Tonight you will be my Vampyre Bride.

The full Moon illuminates the clearing
Where I find you feeding from one of your admirers,
His face full of bliss.
Watching you drives me wild with desire
To touch you and taste the blood
Still warm on your lips.

My pulse quickens as I draw near.
The need to give my body and blood to you
Grows sharp and crystal clear.
Still I hold back just a moment longer
Watching you quench your insatiable hunger.

Your scent is an intoxicating bouquet.
Your beauty eclipses all those around.
I long to lay with you and bite you again on this day,
As always my love for you knows no bounds.

The desire to have your fangs deep in my neck,
Drinking from the Well of Life
And Power in my veins can no longer be denied.
Moving across the field, silently praying for you to see.
You come to me at last, eyes burning,
Arms open wide.

Melting in your embrace,
Exposing the well at my neck for you to taste.
The Life Force of the Elders courses
Through my veins.
The perfect gift for you:
My love, my heart,
My Immortal Mate.

I’m visiting another blog today!

Hello all!

My friend and fellow author, Amber Lea Easton was kind enough to let me take over her blog today. I shared what it was like to pour my heart and soul out into my writing.  Come on over and leave a comment. Let me know what you think of the poem I put up in the post. If you like that one, check out the whole collection in Follow Me: Poetry from the Heart and Soul.

Six Sentence Sunday

It’s good to be back in this group again! I’ve been away with other projects and unable to choose six sentences to submit for the last few weeks. Now that I have several works in progress, the hard part was choosing which six! LOL!  This week’s submission is from The Island (Now and Forever 2) which I hope to finish and get off to my editor before the end of the month.

Let me set up the scene a little bit. It seems our so called villain, Julia Santos has once again found herself in the hospital after a self inflicted injury. Her boyfriend of two years, Jacob Hartley has just left her to rest in the hospital overnight in the good hands of Dr. Carlos. Little does Jacob know…well, see for yourself.

She thought of nothing all day except how she felt with his tongue darting in and out of her ass and pussy. Just the flick of his tongue over his own lips made her shiver with delight and soak her thong.

The very same thong the good doctor tore from her body seconds after lifting her up to sit on top of sink in her bathroom. Her finger wound tight in his dark wavy hair as his mouth plundered hers, taking her breath away. She loved the power she had over this man. Any time, any place she wanted, he was always willing to oblige.

Another direction for my poetry and other writing

I’ve been a tossing around the idea of writing a vampire erotic romance novel or even a series. Since I’ve been a bit preoccupied with working on the Now and Forever series, changing things around a bit so to speak, I had put that idea on the back burner until yesterday.

My friend and fellow author Maya DeLeina suggested I write some vampire inspired poetry. She is looking for submissions in this vein (pun intended 😉 ) for a new website she is putting together that will feature authors of vampire novels.  I confided in her that I had been thinking of writing a series with vampires sort of inspired by my time playing the game Vampire Wars. Even with all the technical issues Zynga and Facebook have with that game, I had fun playing it for a while. I loved the intricate storie/plot lines they came up with for the challenges at each level. Why not create a world similar to that for my erotic romance novels?

I know what many of you are thinking. Why go off in so many different directions? Why not finish the series and ideas I already have plotted out? Well, my mind doesn’t work that way. I have to go where it takes me at the moment. If I don’t, the scene may be lost to me later. I have to write it down. That’s why I have several notebooks with me when I go to work at the veterinary hospital. If something hits, I jot down quick notes on any piece of paper, and then when I get a free moment, grab the notebook and write the scene all down.  I don’t write my novels in order from the beginning to the end. That’s not how I see the story. For me, it’s an ever evolving process. What I had originally plotted out, may not be how the story plays out.

For example, I didn’t originally plan to have Quinn fall in love with two men. I had originally planned on having her fall hard for Jake, him abandon her when she needed him the most, and her settling for her loveless marriage. What fun was that? I had to find a happily ever after, at least for the moment.  After watching an old episode of Grey’s Anatomy when the character Izzy falls in love with cardiac patient Denny, the idea for Steve was borne.  The actor’s smile and voice just kept playing in my head as I developed the story between Steve and Quinn.  Of course, he is the perfect contrast to Jake.  With both men, Quinn is able to learn to work through some devastating losses in her life and finally move forward into her own happily ever after.

Now for book two in the series. Originally I had planned on My Love, My Friend as the second book…second and third actually. Once again that story is long so I have split it up to give my heroine Sammi a happily every after for now with Nathan in My Love, My Friend.  The book that follows this one is the second half of their story reintroducing another love interest for her in the form of Michael, the man she’s been in love with for over a quarter century. I have finally settled on the title of that one as Faithfully Yours.  But…and it’s a big but, I felt that more of Jake’s story needed to be told especially after writing the short story A Christmas Miracle for Jake.  That small prequel helped explain how Jake and Quinn’s bond was so strong and helped me dip more into a bit of the paranormal by introducing their Guardian Angels.  So look for book two to be the expansion of this short story and be called The Island.

Didn’t I tell you that you haven’t seen the last of Quinn, her friends or her family? The Quartermarsh, Hartley, and Eischer families are going to be around for a while!

The other series that I have been slaving over is now called Songs of Fate. Book one of that series is based on one of my poems and has the same title The Vixen, the Witch, and the Daemon. I will be writing this series with another pen name: Lia Michaels.  The reason I’m doing that, is that the series will feature several menage scenes. Since I currently write M/F type erotic romances, I felt it was best to use another pen name to write M/F/M, and F/F/M and more. This series has witches, faeries, shifters, gods and goddesses interfering in the lives of these beings, vampires, elves and more.

Now don’t get all freaked out!  I will be writing the vampire M/F books as myself and leave the menage to Lia. The poetry will all be under my name as well. So much to do and so little time in the day. (sigh) Thank you all for following me along this journey. Let’s see how much fun we can have, shall we?

Blessed be,

Tammy

Hello Everyone!

I got word from Smashwords today that my book was accepted into their premium catalog! That means it will be sent out to distributors such as Barnes and Noble, Apple and Sony within the next couple weeks. Amazon on the other hand may take a bit since they are working out some sort of digital issue between the two sites. No matter. If it takes too long to get there, I will put out a separate edition to be on Amazon, but for now, you can get the electronic version for your kindles all from the Smashwords website.

To celebrate, I have decided to offer the book for 37% off the list price from now until January 14th.  By using the following coupon code, you can get the electronic version of your choice for only $2.50.  Here is the code JB53Y

Feel free to share the code with your friends and let me know what you think of my poetry.  Is there one poem in particular that “speaks” to you?  I would love to get your feedback! Go ahead and leave a review on Smashwords if you like.

Thank you all for sharing in this with me!

Considering adding another book to the Now and Forever series…

I had such a great time writing the short story “A Christmas Miracle for Jake” that I have been mulling over in my brain the idea to expand upon it.  I was tinkering around with the idea of making it part of the Now and Forever series, but as a prequel.  Jacob’s story really needs to be told.  How did he become such a broken man unable to trust his own heart?

In For the Love of Quinn, I touched upon his story a bit through conversations between Jake and his brother Eric and other characters.  The woman who broke his heart and nearly drove Jake to kill himself keeps coming up in my head.  Julia Santos is a piece of work.  She is the classic “mean girl” all grown up and even more evil, sort of like Sharon Stone’s character in Basic Instinct.  Catherine Tramell was wild, devastatingly beautiful, used to getting what she wanted when she wanted it no matter the costs.  For her, murder was not off limits.  Would it be for Julia? I think the idea that a man would nearly die in a motorcycle accident because he was so distraught over seeing her with another man would be just the kind of thing to get her juices flowing.

Oh, now my mind is definitely going there!

While Jake is in his coma and on The Island with Quinn, Julia is busy stirring up trouble in the real world for him and his family.  Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t know that the Hartley family has two Angels watching over them and Jake.  Of course there is Karma and Lady Fate waiting to get their claws into Ms. Santos!

Okay, looks like I got some writing to do! I am going with the title The Island for now. Any other ideas?
