Are you in the mood for Halloween this year? I have a new release coming October 27th. It’s called “bones”, and it’s the second gothika anthology. (The first was “stitch”).
Last time, in “stitch”, four of us m/m romance authors wrote a story about a Frankenstein-like creature. That book included a novella by myself, Kim Fielding, Sue Brown, and Jamie Fessenden.
In “bones”, the novellas are all around the theme of Voodoo. The anthology includes a novella from myself, Kim Fielding, Jamie Fessenden, and BG Thomas.
Here’s the blurb for the anthology:
Vodou. Obeah. Santeria. These religions seem mysterious and dark to the uninitiated, but the truth is often very different. Still, while they hold the potential for great power, they can be dangerous to those who don’t take appropriate precautions. Interfering with the spirits is best left to those who know what they’re doing, for when the proper respect isn’t shown, trouble can follow. In these four novellas, steamy nights of possession and exotic ritual will trigger forbidden passion and love. You cannot hide your desires from the loa, or from the maddening spell of the drums. Four acclaimed m/m authors imagine homoerotic love under the spell of Voodoo.
And for my novella, “The Bird”:
Colin Hastings is sent to Jamaica in 1870 to save his father’s sugar cane plantation. If he succeeds, he can marry his fiancée back in London and take his place in proper English society. But Colin finds more than he bargained for on the island. His curiosity about Obeah, the native folk magic, leads him to agree to a dangerous ritual where he is offered his heart’s most secret desire—one he’s kept deeply buried all his life. What happens when a proper English gentleman has his true sensual nature revealed and freed by the Obeah spirits?
Jamie’s novella “The Book of St Cyprian”:
“When Alejandro Valera finds a book of black magic in New Orleans, he ships it to his friend Matthew in New Hampshire so he can read it when he gets home. Unfortunately, Matthew’s dog, Spartacus, gets to the package first, and Alejandro returns to find Matthew locked out of his apartment by the suddenly vicious pit bull. The boys call on all the magic they know to free Spartacus from the evil spirit, but they might need to accept that they’re in over their heads.”
I don’t have the blurbs for Kim and BG’s stories, but I can tell you can I really loved reading them!
