  1. Thanks Rebecca,

    Twilight's Eternal Embrace is a vampire tale.
    ~ The Legend… ~
    There was a time when the nightwalkers lived among the humans, before they were known as vampyres or vampires to the modern world. The nightwalkers had their own clans and names they called themselves: Dearg-due, Oiche Sith, Draugr, Kyuuketsuki—to name a few of the older clan families. The nightwalkers' way of life was similar to the daywalkers. The only difference being the nightwalkers required blood to sustain life, a source easily supplied within their own clan. Male and female shared their blood with each other. There was no need to seek outsiders.

    As time marched on, their way of life became compromised. No more children were born to the females of the nightwalker clans and their numbers dwindled. For a preternatural being, that was virtually immortal in comparison to other life forms of the world, the idea of fading into
    history as merely a legend proved terrifying. Something had to be done…

    Though there are many stories of courage, this is Adryanna and Bram's story, a daywalker and a blood drinker, who defied the odds and forged a new destiny.

    The day was hers. The night was his. But Twilight was theirs.

  2. Happy Halloween, Rebecca!

    I see you have several of my spooky stories pictured.

    A Distant Call is a ghost story with a twist, my first Appalachia tale and will always be one of my favorites.

    It's 1920s Appalachia, and Preacher Jessie rides into town with nothing but a mule and Bible to his name. He fixes up an old church where the previous Preacher had mysteriously disappeared several years ago and starts ministering to the local mountain folk.

    But he soon meets a beautiful, wild mountain woman named Anna, a girl that local gossip claims might be a witch. And he's warned that legend has it folks who walk the mountain trails in the full moon sometimes disappear, never to be seen again.

    But Preacher Jessie has never been one to listen to gossip or legends...

  3. Hello, Becca & anyone visiting! My story is "Conceived in Darkness." It's a short I wrote a while back and I hope to write a few more and continue the series. Below is a brief excerpt. Enjoy & Happy Halloween!!

    Conceived in Darkness - excerpt

    The tall man smiled again and Kathryn relaxed, especially when Orekon came to stand by her side and wrapped an arm around her waist.

    “Am I correct in assuming this is your mate, Orekon?” The prince nodded. “From Earth, I gather.” He nodded once more. “How unusual, her eye color and the curls in her hair. She is lovely, my boy. You’ve chosen well.”

    He turned to Orekon’s mate. “Forgive me for asking, Siena… May I see?”

    Kathryn looked confused for only a moment before she realized he wanted proof they were mated. Tilting her head to one side, she pulled her hair back so the man could see Orekon’s mark. A heated blush rose to her skin at revealing something she believed to be intimate. Kathryn felt Orekon’s grip tighten around her waist.

    “Excellent. Congratulations, Orekon and…” He left the sentence open-ended, looking expectantly toward Kathryn.

    “Ohh! I’m sorry. It’s Kathryn Schaffer, although I imagine I can drop the Schaffer now.”

    The tall man laughed and bowed to each of them in turn. “I imagine you can, Siena Kathryn. I am Valder Piershin—much like Sir Piershin, if on Earth—Orekon’s uncle and advisor. Welcome to Astovia, your new home.” He smiled and bowed deeply once more.

    “If you will excuse us, I need to speak with Orekon about a problem on the planet below.”

    When Kathryn moved to retreat, Orekon tightened his grip on her waist so she couldn’t move. “Kathryn is to be more than my mate, Piershin. She is the new princess and soon to be Astovia’s queen. We will make decisions and serve our people together.”

    Kathryn glanced up and found Orekon’s gaze locked on her own. “I’d be honored to help you, Orekon, in any way possible.”

    Piershin focused hard on the two before allowing a satisfied smile. “Yes, you have chosen well, my boy. Siena Kathryn will make an excellent queen of the people.”

    Orekon picked up her suitcase and led the way to the landing area and the pod waiting to take them to the planet’s surface. Three androids passed in the opposite direction, going into the main room of the ship. Moments later, the door swished closed.

    After setting the controls in the pod to take them to Astovia, Orekon sat down and placed his arm over the back of Kathryn’s seat. He looked hard at his uncle. “Is it Gammon?”

    “Yes. He heard you left Astovia to find your mate on Earth and has issued a challenge.”

    Kathryn’s eyes opened wide, startled when Orekon growled a warning.

    “So be it. He has done nothing but push for the chance to take my family’s throne for the last two seasons.”

    “Piershin, forgive my ignorance, but what will this mean to Orekon, this challenge?”

    “If a royal is challenged for the throne, he can rebuff the challenge and still remain in power, but he will lose the respect of his people. If Orekon agrees to the challenge, he will fight Gammon or his champion.”

    “You mean they’ll have an actual, knock-out fight? Until one of them goes down?”

    The men exchanged a telling look. Piershin answered.

    “No, Siena Kathryn. The challenge is to the death.”

  4. Oh I love the dripping blood and the witch stirring the pot. I have some of these books and I am more eager than ever to get to them.

  5. I should add that The Violin is a time travel story and the violin that the lonely Genevieve buys at an auction is a calling card to the past in 1927 and to John Douglas who just might change Genevieve's future. There's a mystery to solve and magic.
    I wrote this book from my heart.

    Loneliness...Mystery...A step through time

    BLURB:
    Genevieve dreams of him almost every night and has for most of her lonely life. Intrigued, she buys his violin and finds the remnants of his life and the mystery of his death in 1927 revealed within its case. Intrigued, she makes a decision, one that will change her life forever.
    Is there a way to change the past and save this man who haunts her heart?
    I absolutely love this cover.

  6. Very entertaining! The gadgets and the covers of the stories. What a good job--tedious, I'm sure, to put it up...but you did great.

  7. Rebecca, you did a great job on the graphics and captions. I love it! Thanks so much for putting these stories up and giving us a place to talk about them. I will post to facebook, too.

    TIME PLAINS DRIFTER:

    Trapped in Indian Territory of 1895 by a quirk of nature, high school teacher Jenni Dalton must find a way to get her seven students back to 2010. Handsome U.S. Marshal Rafe d’Angelico seems like the answer to her prayers; he is, after all, an angel. In a race against time and evil, Rafe has one chance to save Jenni’s life and her soul from The Dark One—but can their love survive?
