Living A Nightmare: Barbara Elsborg

Can I confide in you? Don’t say no. I don’t have anyone else to talk to. But keep this to yourself. I’m eaten up with worry and I need to understand why. It all started last month, when I was in the park. One minute I was standing there admiring my new high heels, the next I was racing after a tennis ball. Unbelievably, even in heels, I managed to get to it before a greyhound!! Fitter than I thought which is a good thing but an inability to pass a lamppost without sniffing the base can’t be good. Though they all smelled wonderful. I hope no one saw me pee on the one next my house. Buts it’s mine- MINE, I TELL YOU.

Oops. Sorry about that. I seem to be a bit short tempered lately.

Another thing I’ve noticed, is -- hair. I mean, we all shave our legs and underarms and sometimes those other bits but not five bloody times a day. I’m having to buy razors in bulk. Plus my silver jewelry has started to bring me out in a nasty rash and I’ve developed a craving for rare steak. Until a few weeks ago I was a vegetarian. Go figure.

Oh and I should mention – sex. Well I’ve always liked sex – now I can’t get enough of it. Even the sixty year old postman with the glass eye and wooden leg looks tasty. But no more missionary position, only doggy style will do. Does that make me kinky?

Did I tell you about the moon? Makes my mouth water and my skin prickle and my voice all husky. Goodness knows what I’ll be like when it’s full in a few days time.

Lady next door has lost her cat and wants me to go look for it. About time I had a word with Fluffy about crapping in my yard. I’m sure I can make the little pussy cat see the error of her ways.

So what do you think? Have I caught something? Do I need to be worried?

* * * *

If you like your werewolves with a sense of humor – try my books. ‘Falling For You’ ‘The Misfits’ and ‘Fight to Remember’ all feature werewolves and are available from Loose-Id. My latest with Ellora’s Cave is ‘The Small Print’ – with a werewolf hunk called Catch.

The Small Print – Barbara Elsborg – out on 1st October with Ellora’s Cave

I’m in trouble.

Matty suddenly finds herself back in her childhood home, naked and alone, with no clue how she came to be there. When her greedy uncle sells Milford Hall from under her, Matty hides in the attic.

The woman is trouble.

Vampire historian, Turner, has long had his eye on Milford Hall and there is no price he won’t pay to own it. He doesn’t expect to find an aggravating female living in his attic insisting she has a right to be there. The small print in the contract backs her up but Turner is determined to maintain his privacy. Doesn’t matter she’s the hottest thing he’s seen for years— in order to protect her from his mistakes, Matty has to go.

I eat trouble for dinner

After a self-imposed twenty year absence from Turner, werewolf Catch arrives to put the past right and save his former lover from circling enemies. But one kiss from Matty and Catch has more than Turner to worry about. Neither boy wants to share their new toy.

Love werewolves and vampires. This story does look like fun read. What else are you working on?

KC Burn said...

Looks like a great story and OMG - what a fabulous cover!

Jennifer Mathis said...

That was great I'd be worried too.

Barbara Elsborg said...

Thanks for the comments! I've just finished a story about a gargoyle that I'll send to Loose Id once my crit partners have finished reading it.
The cover is great, isn't it! Not quite how I'd imagined the guys but never mind.

Arlene said...

Very funny, Barbara. You always crack me up. Your consistent subtle humor, along with awesome characters, sexy and unforgetable no matter if they howl or not, make you the best writer I know. I can't wait to read what's around the corner next.

Jean P said...

That was very cute, understated humor. Sounds like a fun story to read, it has werewolves and vampires, what more do you need.

Chrystalla said...

I think men's sweat smells great.
Should I start worrying? ;-)

Barbara Elsborg said...

Oh yes, worry!!!!
You're either a werewolf or married to one, Chrystalla!!

Cathy M said...

Great post, Barbara, you had my laughing, and since I love werewolf stories, I will be sure to check out your titles.

Happy Halloween

PhyllisC said...

Thanks everyone. I'll draw a winner at random in a couple of days and post details!

Rebekah E. said...

Sounds like a great story.

Brandlwyne aka Brandy B said...

Hi, I love werewolves aswell and when you make them funny it gets even better. I am going to put this on my book list and WHEN did you say your gargoyle book be out??? Also do your books come in print? Thanks for sharing with us!!!


Barbara Elsborg said...

Hi Brandy,
ah print - how I would love my Loose-Id books to come out in print. But they have a 70,000 word rule - longer and they won't consider it. BUT if they accept Gargoyle (Not yet sure of the title) they said they will consider printing all - even though the 5 I have with them are over 70,000 words - well four are!

Of my other books - three are in print with Ellora's Cave and four more will be in print this year. I heard that this week. Yippee!!!

ilona said...

Oooh, someone's got the werewolf bug :D

Actually I love werewolf and vampire stories and this one sounds really great. The cover alone would have me interested but the blurb sells it to me as well :D

*yadkny* said...

Werewolf love stories are my favorite! Adding a dose of humor to the mix is always nice too:) I'll definitely be putting this one on my wishlist.

Barbara Elsborg said...

Thanks, guys!!! Your names are in the hat!

Barbara Elsborg said...

Right - and the winner is - PhyllisC - I'll email you!!!
Thanks to everyone for commenting.
