If you look down further on my blog, you'll see some photos of the fires that burned with such devastation here in California. What's that got to do with writing, you ask?
I want to tell you about a special new anthology coming from Changeling Press. Its called Fire Storm, and all the stories are related to fire, fire elementals, and shifters. Remember a few months back when there was flooding in the east and fire in the west? Well, I was unfortunate enough to be right in the middle of a circle of some of California's worst fires. We got to talking and decided to do this anthology specifically to benefit national disaster relief organizations. I'm really proud that my story, Cougar Meadow, was selected to be part of this anthology.
A collection of short Paranormal Erotic Adventures from the Changeling Press family of authors. Royalties to be donated to National Disaster Relief efforts.
Catan’s Fire -- Jade Buchanan: Asad needs to teach his mate what happens to submissive Felidae who disobey orders. This is one lesson Catan will never forget!
Brimstone by Mistake -- Alice Gaines: Lucifer has grown tired of processing soul after soul through hell -- until Sally Upshaw appears unannounced. The little temptress turns him on as no other woman ever has. The problem… Heaven's made a mistake. What will Lucifer do when the Man Upstairs wants Sally back?
Shifting Priorities -- Anne Kane: Solar flares have sparked random wildfires amongst the out-ports, and stationmaster Tome Rimmer forbids females to travel alone -- a decision that doesn't sit well with Jexx. Her battle implants more than compensate for her gender. But when the sexy hunk she picks up in the station bar turns out to be more than human, she has more important things to worry about than her profit margin.
Wolf Style -- B.J. McCall: When a wolf races out of the flames and straight into Volunteer Firefighter Matt Reynolds’ arms, he has no idea how his life is about to change.
Cougar Meadow -- Belinda McBride: When firefighter Ellie Cameron is separated from her crew and trapped in a firestorm, the last thing she expects is to be rescued -- by a shapeshifting mountain lion who awakens the heat buried within her -- and the need to mate.
Going Somewhere -- Cameo Brown: Leonora Palmer, an undercover arson investigator, gets an unexpected lesson in desire when the mysterious owner of a wild animal sanctuary catches her snooping in his garden and gives her no choice but to surrender to his primal needs.
Burning Down the House -- Isabella Jordan: Katurah has always had the ability to start fires with her mind. Will she use her powers now to end it all -- or will she give in to a fiery lover?
Stockings -- Jade Buchanan: What do you get when you throw a gorgeous female cat shifter, an enticing pair of stockings, and a very interested lady wolf into the mix? Enough heat to burn down the house...
Fire Thief -- Jordan Castillo Price: A glittery glam rock waif and a tattooed existentialist duck into a closet behind the bar. It’s just another gritty, anonymous, gay encounter in the dark…Isn’t it?
Britta's Beast -- Kate Hill: When Max and Britta met at a convention for members of magical law enforcement, they seemed like a perfect fit. But Max believes women should raise the family while men do the protecting. Problem. Britta’s a Valkyrie, and that’s just not her style. Time for the centuries old cat to learn a few new tricks -- before his lover takes wing.
Firehorse -- Mary Winter: When wildfires threaten a Nevada wild horse sanctuary, photographer Billie Mote takes one chance too many and finds herself needing rescue -- from a man who teaches her that there’s only one thing that burns hotter than the wildfire outside, and that’s the passion between them.
Mating Fever -- Selena Illyria:The moons are full, and Courtney's trapped with Devin Langley -- the man of her dreams. It's mating season for cat shifters, and she’s in heat. Perfect opportunity. The only problem -- she's been promised to another man.
