Born in England a very long time ago, I now call South Carolina home where I live with my wonderfully supportive family, who have come to learn that meeting deadlines translates to pizza for dinner! When not writing, I’m just like everyone else, trolling the internet looking for recipes (I love rhubarb) checking out cute animal videos (who knew baby owls were so adorable?) and trying to get through my never shrinking stack of to-be-read books!

I would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact me through my website: carlasmithauthor.com

Seriously though, I'm not a writer who feels the need to write every single day, so if the words aren't coming then I simply step away from my laptop and go read. It's amazing how helpful losing myself in the work of a favorite author can be. (less)

Hi Hengy,

It's so good to hear from you!

There's a reason you haven't seen any new books from me, well no Vampire's Promise books anyway - I have a historical trilogy coming out in January and February, called the Corsets & Carriages series. The three books are titled, Mischance, Resolve and Salvation. It's something different, but I hope people will give them a try.

Don't worry though , this doesn't mean I have given up writing paranormal romances! I'm hoping to self-publish 'A Vampire's Dream' which is a novella telling how Aleksei and Anasztaizia first met, and I hope to have that out before the end of the year, and then my current work-in-progress is a demon and fae novel. No title as of yet, but it's about a human girl who can see the fae as they truly are - and they don't like it!

Your idea about Rowan and Gabriel having a child is an intriguing one, and, I confess, something I've never actually thought of! I'm not sure how I would pull that off, but it's definitely something to think about. I was planning on writing a book about how Rowan and Gabriel first met, but then I've also had requests to tell Ryiel's story and we can't forget about Kartel (you just know he's up to no good!)

I promise I will send out newsletters once I have something either ready to release or I have cover art or plot details to share. Sadly I'm not a very fast writer but hopefully I'll be able to share the historical covers soon.

It was lovely to hear from you and you can e-mail me anytime. Take care and I hope all is well with you.

Best always,
Carla

“The world as I knew it came to a screeching halt and tumbled off its axis. And I knew, no matter whatever else happened to me in the rest of my life, something had just changed. It was one of those pivotal moments that happen once in a lifetime. One that said nothing was ever going to be the same.”
Carla Susan Smith, A Vampire's Promise

“Together we watched Jake and Gabriel do the guy head-nod thing. That weird communication gesture that is only understood by those born with a cock. I have no idea why guys do that instead of actually verbalizing, but it seems to work for them. I put it down to one of those men-are-from-Mars things.”
Carla Susan Smith, A Vampire's Promise

“Every experience we have leaves an imprint that affects us. Good or bad, it’s just a matter of degree.”
