Disturbed Connections, gay paranormal romance

Gay Paranormal Romance 

 

A werewolf and a vampire, forbidden love. What could go wrong?
CHRIS, a werewolf on the run from his abusive clan, hides in a vampire house. ALEC, a vampire who has comfortably lived in the house for years, has no intentions to ever leave it.

Their connection is obvious from the first time they meet. But the house rules are strict, werewolves and vampires can not date. Unable to fight their attraction and unwilling to leave, they instead choose to hide their love.

Then Chris’ old clan finds him and takes him back.
Will Alec ever see Chris again?

 

Vampires and werewolves, a lot of growling and hot scenes, who doesn’t love that? This second book in the Otherkin Spirit series is a stand-alone novel with two new awesome characters.

Chris is a sexy long blond haired werewolf who loves to listen to metal music. Alec is a bulky but timid vampire who spends most of his days training for kickbox tournaments. Until, of course, they meet.

 

You can grab your copy of the book in most online stores and a print edition will be out soon. For your ease, here are some of the links:

Holidailies 31: My goals for 2013!

So, after I looked at what I’ve done in 2012 I’ll now look forward to 2013. Here are my goals.

My goals come in four types: health, university, writing and other.

Health:

My health goals for 2013 look a lot like 2012 and are in line with my lifestyle of the past couple of months.- Keep to a livingschedule and sleep well. This means no 4 o clock nights and waking up early.
– Eat healthy. Meaning, make bulk foods and other things that are easy to freeze and easy to eat. I do need to make a bit more variation in this though, but that might not be too hard, I’ve got a few ideas.
– no smoking (after I finish this pack, which might take me about 3 weeks).
– no caffeine, apart from 2 cups of tea a day.

University:

University gets it’s own goals this year, especially since I need to switch universities as the schoolyear ends.
– Get into university of choice for my master.
– Finish Dissertation on time.
– Find good placement for masters degree.
– Don’t leave work to the last minute.

Writing:

This one is interesting since I’ll be combining some goals from different years again for this year. With my new writing technique I should be able to finish these goals without too much trouble (hopefully).
– write 100.000 words in the whole year, this is an old goal but I’m bringing it back. It’s not a set goal just something I would like to try again to see if I can do it with my new writing style.
– edit Disturbed Fate and Disturbed Connections and publish them.- write 2 more books to publish this year (not a set goal, just something I hope will work).
– publish at least 4 and hopefully 6 books in 2013, all novels or novellas. 4 of these are already finished and only need rewriting and edits (and in some cases covers).
– try my hand at a couple more short stories.
– try another new genre to write. (in 2012 I tried my hand at traditional romance)

Other:

List of random stuff I would like to try and master this year.
– Learn Japanese, I don’t have a set goal for this yet since I don’t know how quick I’ll pick it up.
– Learn to write left handed, weird goal but it’s something that interests me to try to get a hang off.
– Read 50 books and list them on Goodreads, and hopefully write reviews for at least half of them. I’m participating in a group where we try reading challenges and read 6 books together this year, I’m looking forward to trying this.

All these goals can potentially die on me and stuff like that but I’m trying not to be too hard on myself and actually choose goals that I can do.

Don’t forget that these books are only cheap or free for one more day: Holidailies 26: Moooooore presents

And that was it, the end of the Holidailies, very interesting to do, I did really like it.

Read on!

Holidailies 30: Small Present. Black Sheep excerpt 3

For today I’ve got a small present for you all, the third excerpt I’ve used in the blog tour. Since not all the people had added the excerpt, I’ll post them as some of the Holidailies.

Black Sheep, excerpt 3.

The first time I saw Vic I was standing in the schoolyard. Marie was hanging around my neck and we were listening to music, like every morning since we started high school. Suddenly she squealed into my ear and out of reflex I started playfully choking her. That was… until someone cleared his throat near us. We stopped and turned around. I froze. There, right in front of me, was the most beautiful guy I had ever seen.

He had long black hair, piercing blue eyes, perfect round and pink lips. The black long-sleeved top he was wearing had chains which were attached to his black skater pants with even more chains on them. He was just damn sexy… He looked very confident even as the whole school was staring at him. He didn’t seem to care or notice at all.

“You squealed, madam?” He grunted but grinned and asked, “You know where room 304 is? I’m new here and need to be there for my first class. I’m Vic, by the way.”

“Uah! Addams Family reference!” Marie jumped up and down. “We’re going there too. I’m Marie and this is Jack.”

Vic looked me up and down and smiled.

“Nice. So I assume you’ll be helping me today?” He seemed to be talking to Marie but his eyes were on me.

“Sure!” Marie grabbed his arm and dragged him with her as she bounced into the school. Vic looked back at me with large eyes as if unsure what was going on, but I shrugged and smirked at him as I walked after them.

It was never boring after that. Marie kept going on and on about him, about how she liked him and how sweet he was. It was annoying, but heck, even I couldn’t get him out of my thoughts. He was just so… intriguing…
