Have cool new cover for the first book of my series: Stormwalker.

The "prequel" to this series is in "A Midwinter Night's Magic," in the Hot for the Holidays Anthology. The heroine, Janet, doesn't appear, but I introduce the town of Magellan, Coyote, and some of the other characters.

More about this series on my Stormwalker page: http://www.allysonjames.com/stormwalker.html (and more info will appear there as we go on).

Book is pubbed May 2010![image error]

I've been enjoying the werewolf series by Bonnie Vanak pubbed by Silhouette Nocturne (The Empath, Enemy Lover, and her Oct. release, Immortal Wolf ). Hot shifters, cool magic, heroines in distress--oh yeah.

I started to get interested in a character called Indigo, a half vampire, half werewolf who's become part of the pack and is a tattoo artist. He's tasty!

I asked Bonnie if he would get his own story, and sure enough, he is--and it's FREE!

Starting today, you can read Indigo's tale: Seducing...

The cool news is that Hot for the Holidays made USA Today at #50 and the New York Times list at #15! (That list will be published in the 10/18 edition of the NYT).

Yay!

Also, I have revamped and updated my entire website. New graphics, new info., new look. Check it out: http://www.allysonjames.com

Tales of the Shareem: Eland is in the hands of my editor, and I'm awaiting more info on that before I can post any pub dates and whatnot. I did, however add Eland to the Shareem page! http...

I got back from Lora Leigh's Reader Appreciation Weekend (RAW) last Monday, but I've been crashing on getting a ms. done, plus I caught a cold (darn it), so I'm just now getting around to talking about....

How much fun it was!!!!

RAW is a smaller reader conference (about 250 people), but it focusses entirely on the reader. There are no writer's workshops, no panel discussions, nothin' like that. Readers party with their friends and buy books.

For me the writer, it was a great chance to catch up ...

I really should post something new! First, thank you to all of the readers who emailed me about Calder . I am happy to hear you liked his story! I turned in a short story about Eland (a Shareem who popped up briefly in Aiden & Ky), and I'm working on Braden's.

News: I'm working on overhauling my website with new graphics, info on new series, and other cool stuff. Please bear with me the next few weeks while I get it up and running. I'll try to make the transition painless.

I'll be at Lora Leigh'...

Today is the release of the fifth Shareem story: Calder.

Access all info on the book, plus excerpt, plus purchase info here:

http://www.ellorascave.com/pm-7500-90-calder.aspx

More about all the Shareem here: http://www.allysonjames.com/shareem.html

Basically (if you're not familiar with the series), Shareem are men genetically bred to be pleasure givers. They were made in a factory called DNAmo, then the making of them was outlawed, and they're only accepted in society as second-class citizens. Poor guys. Not that they don't have any fun. :-)

This series launched my ero-tic romance career, and I'm very, very fond of the Shareem. Writing them is like being with old friends.

Braden's story is next!

Today is the official release date of Mortal Seductions.

Yay!!

If you've not read an excerpt, it is here: http://www.allysonjames.com/mortalseductionsexcerpt.html

This should be on bookstore shelves everywhere (this is the HEAT line, so it's mostly at Borders, B&N and the like, no Walmarts).

I'll be sending out a newsletter tomorrow all about this release and Tales of the Shareem: Calder which is out on Friday. Plus a new contest to celebrate The Mammoth Book of Vamp Romance II, in which I have a s

I'm excited that it's 15 days from the official release date of Mortal Seductions . (Insert confetti throwing here. *g*)

The Mystic Realm is holding a constest until AUGUST 31 for a free, signed copy of Mortal Temptations (book 1 in the "Mortal" series).

Do you have to read Mortal Temptations first? Not necessarily. Demitri, the hero of Mortal Seductions makes an appearance in Mortal Temptations to help out the heroes in that book, and you learn he's a tiger shapeshifter. But you *really* get to kn
