And, at the same time, I distract myself by doing something physical, watching a funny movie, or writing something different from my usual. When I figure out what the emotional/mental issue is, I take steps to heal/address it. Usually, that brings me back to the computer.

The most fun aspect has been meeting other writers at groups, classes and conferences. Writing can be lonely, so it's great to have a community of like-minded sufferers!

AuthorIsland Congrats on the US release of BLOOD THERAPY!

The U.S. Release Of Lynda Hilburn's Second Kismet Knight Novel

BLOOD THERAPY by Lynda Hilburn

Book 2, Kismet Knight, Ph.D., Vampire Psychologist Series

Dr. Kismet Knight and the dark world of vampires are back in this sexy sequel to the wicked romp The Vampire Shrink.

Still reeling from her earlier adventures, the spunky, smart, and tough heroine tries to adjust to her new reality--and new undead clientele. Then she discovers a frightening secret about these powerful immortals that further warps her world.

Needing to escape, she flees to New York for the American Psychological Association's conference, where she meets up with hottie FBI Agent Alan Stevens. Unfortunately, he's not the only blast from the past in the Big Apple: so is Lucifer, the demented tormentor who nearly killed her. As the killer closes in, everyone is rounded up for a shocking finale that no one will survive unscathed.

AuthorIsland Happy Release Day Lynda!!

Today on www.CyberLaunchParty.blogspot.com , we're celebrating Lydna Hilburn's US release of THE VAMPIRE SHRINK.

THE VAMPIRE SHRINK by Lydna Hilburn
Book 1, Kismet Knight, Ph.D., Vampire Psychologist Series
Denver Psychologist Kismet Knight, Ph.D., doesn’t believe in the paranormal. She especially doesn’t believe in vampires. So what happens when she finds herself neck-deep in the vampire underworld?

Kismet is smart, witty and attractive. She’s respected in her field, successful and prosperous. She’s followed all the rules – done everything right. So, what’s the problem? Her life is empty. There’s no passion. No vitality. No excitement.

That is, until a new client introduces Kismet to the vampire underworld, and a drop-dead gorgeous, 800-year-old vampire named Devereux. Kismet isn’t buying the vampire story, but can’t explain why she has such odd reactions and feelings whenever Devereux is near. Kismet is soon forced to open her mind to other possibilities when she is visited in her office by two angry bloodsuckers, who would like nothing better than to challenge Devereux by hurting Kismet.

As Kismet gets pulled deeper and deeper into the vampire subculture, she struggles to hold onto her professional ideas about what is and isn’t “real.” The more she finds herself attracted to the charismatic, handsome Devereux, the more out of control her life becomes.

When one of her clients shows up in her office almost completely drained of blood, Kismet finds herself immersed in an ongoing murder investigation. Kismet is questioned by irreverent, handsome FBI profiler Alan Stevens, who warns her that vampires are very real. And one is a murderer. A murder who is after her.

In the midst of all this, Kismet realizes she has feelings for both the vampire and the profiler, but even though she cares for each of the men, facing the reality that vampires exist – along with all the other supernatural insanity she discovers – is enough of a challenge. For now.

AuthorIsland Sexy Vampire Satire From Lynda Hilburn



DIARY OF A NARCISSISTIC BLOODSUCKER by Lynda Hilburn





Told in first person by the vampire herself (Zara), this is the diary of an ancient, self-absorbed, yet-amusing nightwalker.

She lusts for both sex and blood. Unfortunately, something has gone awry and her normal habits now create new problems to solve. In the midst of sorting things out, she meets an intriguing human named Niven - a musician who lives in the magical kingdom of contemporary Boulder, CO - and discovers that he is much more than he appears to be.

Then, if things weren't interesting enough, Zara encounters her old mentor/lover - the vampire who originally turned her - and things get downright supernatural.
