Vale isn't immortal, but he is longer lived than your average human. If Bludmen can live to 300, I'm guessing Vale would hit 150, maybe, since he's half human. And as for Cherie... what happened to her is a reflection of the child sex trade, and her time there was a nightmare. In Wicked Ever After, I mention that she finally got her happily ever after, though. As a rape victim myself, I can't imagine a world in which women weren't weighed down by past abuse, but I also want to see them move past it and triumph on the other side, like I feel I did.(less)

Thanks so much for reading! Unfortunately, I don't see it happening until rights revert back to me some day, at which point I hope to Kickstart an omnibus with all 4 Blud e-novellas packaged together in print. I'll be sure to update on Goodreads whenever that happens. This is just one of those unfortunate things about traditional publishing-- for now, it's totally out of my hands. :((less)

“I would burn down the world for you," he whispered fiercely. "Your world or my own. I would rip down the entire city with my bare hands without a second thought. I don't need to taste anything else, I don't need a comparison.”
Delilah S. Dawson, Wicked as They Come

“Time to beat back the bunny hordes," he said gallantly,knowing that any blood-hungry animals in the area would be waiting outside for me.
He threw open the door, shouting, "Bunnies, prepare to meet your doom!”
Delilah S. Dawson, Wicked as They Come

“Dammit, woman! You're scent, your stupid bloody delicious scent lingering in every crevice of my body and my wardrobe, driving me nearly mad. Do you know what it's like to want something so badly, to have it so close, and still feel that it's out of your reach? Out of control?”

Liv Chanin Thanks for accepting my friend request! I've always only had three favorite fictional characters: Hannibal Lecter, Dolores Claiborne, and Lestat. I have officially added Criminy Stain to that list. He is absolutely delicious!

Sophia Thank you for accepting my friend request, Delilah. I only just finished catching up on your fabulous series yesterday. Talented lady!

VampireNovelFan Thanks for friending, Delilah! And thanks for dropping by my blog the other day. I was totally not expecting that so it was a huge pleasant surprise! I can't wait until the giveaway is over so that I can talk about it with even more friends. You're doing a stellar job!

Oh and FYI, when you reply to comments made here on your profile, the other user won't receive an alert that you've posted. You have to post over on their profile comments for them to know. It's a weird Goodreads quirk that they have yet to fix.

They asked how they knew I was Delilah, and I told them I was wearing Delilah's underpants. I guess that was good enough. =)


Stephanie Look at you with your author goodreads page! Yay! :)

I'm kind of a late adopter, as you can tell by my camera-less flip phone with collies as one of 4 available wallpapers. =) But if you're here, it must be cool.
