Looking for costume clothes for AAD? Girls I got your number!

I have been getting questions about the Masquerade and such, and I have decided, since I wont have much to blog about by way of books for a while, Ill give you guys some pointers on places to get AMAZING clothes at super prices not only for AAD and for costuming, but for any time your at a convention. Today Is going to be Costume style cuteness!

Gal Friday! Yes thats what I think of when I see this dress! its cotton and just enough spandex to hold everything in and in the right places. Yes its very vintage 50's and even a bit pinup rockabilly, But it could be something you would wear to be ANY of the gals in Noir. You can get this HERE.
They have it in the red and black, and black and white. Perfect dress for someone that is looking to sit at our Noir table!

How about being a goddess? We got one for that too. Its a double duty dress, as it can be used for a costume (just dress it up with some jewelry) and you can wear it for a night out too. I love the color (Also comes in Black) and it gives you a lot of choices on what you can do with the dress by way of looks because its so basic. This one is polyester and spandex. It is completely floor length, so when you walk with it, you will glide. Perfect dress for someone that chooses to sit at our myths and gods table! You can buy the dress HERE

Next Post will be about Victorian looks for Sherlock Holmes sort of looks, and Gothic romance style looks (I know Leanna Renee Hieber is going to love that post!) Stay tuned!

New releases and fun for AAD!

Eliza wasn't kidding! Can we get any busier now that Spring has, well... sprung? Seems I finish one story, to have to dive right into another one, while between I'm revising, rewriting, and editing stuff.

One of the lastest finishes was BELLONA'S WAR RIBBON. This will be available at AAD as one of the Love's Immortal:Pantheon series collections this year. Woot!! This will release April 15th on ARe, so watch for it.

A persistent obsession with a goddess could jeopardize one man's sanity, or could give him eternal love.

An Ancient Civilizations Professor has hungered for one woman for over twenty years. The only problem--she
hasn't existed in millenia. When he is swept from modern times to the birth of the Roman Empire, he thinks his
sanity has finally snapped.

All he wants is to have one chance to love her.

If he can win the heart of the Goddess of War, he might find more than any obsession could ever promise.

I'm also happy to say that Watching Her Every Move and Alpha Awakening have been approved to go to print! The catch?

Gotta write Sheridan's story... Bummer, right?

LOL Nope! She's in the works right now, and I'm really liking her. Imagine Elizabeth Taylor in her Cleopatra days... Oh, and she's a wolf shifter, just like Rush. And wait until you see who she meets.... I'm sincerely hoping to have this for AAD as well.

And let's not forget the Aiza Clan... Brooke will be in print for AAD.

Brooke Aiza has returned home after staying with her Aunt Jerry for more than a year to learn she's an aunt herself by her brother, and her sister is married! Overwhelmed by the changes taking place with her siblings, she begins to feel more than a familial affection for her new brother-in-law, and sees no escape except to put distance between them until she leaves for her parent's home.

Mitch isn't interested in any woman, content with his life. Mostly. Even his brother senses a restlessness building within him, but for what? Then when Mitch suffers a major accident, he and Brooke are all but confined to the same house, and he is left trying to remember why he didn't want anything to do with women. Because the more he sees of her, the more he needs her kiss.

The resurgance of an amulet into the sibling's lives changes everything, for the amulet can control them all. It will take two to destroy the evil stalking the Aiza family, and if Mitch refuses to face his feelings and Brooke can't overcome her hesitations to form a deeper trust, the opening of the gates of Hell could be the result.

So tons of goodies! I'll also be donating a basket for the charity draw, so make sure you bring your luck! You're goooonnnaa waaannnnnnt to wiin.

That's all for this month! See you next round!

Busy Busy Busy

How does the 25th of the month keeping coming and going and slipping my mind? Seems we all have busier than ever lives these days. I'm going to have to talk to the DH about a vacation soon I think. :)

But keeping busy means that there's lots of writing going on and lots of new books to share.

I've got my next contemporary book, Fire & Desire, coming out any day now. This story is the fourth book of my Purgatory series, which is a lot of fun to write and allows me to mix things up when I'm not in the paranormal mood. (although that's not often.)

April brings all kinds of fun. Like Stella, I'm busy preparing for RT. Her and I were just talking about costume make up last night. Luckily she talked me down from the ledge and make up that would stain my skin. lol I'm making my own costume for the fairy ball (call me crazy)and I'm considering on going all out. Maybe medium out would be better.

April also brings two more new releases. The long awaited book 2 of the cougar series, Kane. I cannot wait for this. Looking forward to hearing what readers think as the trilogy continues.

Also, Dirty Deeds, my demon novella will be out at the end of April from Loose Id. My AC/DC loving sex demon was one of my favorite heroines to write. I just got the cover this week and am fascinated by the artists talent for painting. (Christine Griffin)

Found my "vest" for my AAD costume!

I'm going to be the Mad Hatter for the AAD masquerade event. Im in the process of designing and buying the pieces for the costume, and While I have been looking, I have been taking several things into account: Comfort, reuse-ability and breath-ability. And I think I found my Vest for the costume, once again at Chicstar!

The vest is cotton, comes in two colors (white and black) and isn't gathered anywhere that might become uncomfortable. And its so plain that it can easily be worn for a costume or with jeans and a blazer. Versatile? Hell yeah.

See I like clothes that can do double duty with costuming. This piece is one of those, mostly because its so basic that the possibilities are endless. I mean its double breasted, has just enough spandex in it to make it fitted and the best part? The Price: Under 25$ You can buy the vest HERE and check out all the clothes at

Can you tell I LOVE this website? So many cute clothes for cheap I'm completely addicted.

OOh and guess what? We have three new books coming out! thats right... short stories, but still you will be treated to something new starting in May! Check out the covers!

More about these stories and books as we get closer to release for them! I know your going to be loving these... ooh and did I mention they are all 99 cents books? thats right! So stay tuned!

Hey everyone!

I thought I would show off one of the really cute dresses I got for RT/AAD this year. Its total Fifties style, which I love, and is cotton which I TOTALLY love! I'm going to be wearing this for the EC party at RT this year (which for me is like a half hour because I cant deal with the insanity) and Probably the signing at AAD because its a totally comfortable dress. Ooh and it was cheap too. Very happy with it.

YOu can buy the dress HERE.

Does anyone know what they are wearing for the parties or the signings for AAD? Dont forget, the masquerade this year is Literary Characters. I will be going as the Mad Hatter (no , not that freaky depp one) and Audra will be the March Hare (no not throwing things left and right)

I'll be posting again soon with more cute clothes for the event!

Can the devil be a romantic hero?

While daydreaming, I wondered if Lucifer, Satan, the Devil, whatever you call him, I wondered if he could be a hero - a romantic hero with honest love and respect for a woman.  I didn't want it to be a man called Lucifer or a devil of a character who finds love, I wanted to rework the actual evil incarnate into a dreamboat.  A dreamboat who isn't a neutered version, but one retains some naughtiness that he embraced for an eternity.

It was a blast to flesh out someone with the worst reputation known to exist.  So, was I successful in the challenge I set out to fulfill?  I think so, but now you can judge for yourself.

Call Me Lucifer by Tilly Greene
Paranormal Erotic Romance/Bondage and D/s
Available through Whiskey Creek Press Torrid

He is much more than the horrific job title and now he needs to prove it to her!

Lucifer, the Prince of Darkness, works hard dishing out punishments and asks for little in return, until now. He's been waiting an eternity for a woman who would bring out his gentle side, his need to love and be loved in return. He’d started to wonder if she even existed but at last he’s found her, in a courtroom arguing for a tougher sentence.

After his first introduction to Nia Adams, a sexy petite firebrand, he spends all his time on the surface at her side. They have a serious relationship and he’s sure the emotion bouncing between them is love. Then she lies to him about how she feels.

While difficult to hear, the lie opens a door. It gives him the only chance he’ll ever have to show her who the man behind the horrific job title really is. And he takes it with both hands.  

Read an Excerpt.

The first eBook in the Mythological Messes Redux series is FREE!

Mistakes aren't bad, they are often something that can be learned from, but what if they are really bad? Cruel. Whatever the original intentions may have been, it's time to set things right, no matter how difficult it is to make things right for everyone involved - mortal or immortal, they're all equal.

Today "Hephaestus Lays Down the Law" is free from All Romance and it also happens to be the first book in the series, although they don't need to be read in order.

It's time some of the ancient Greeks who were shafted in the original myths to be given a new ending.  They derve one that befits who they really were and not what the one thing that defined them.

I'm here!

Phew! Okay, I'm here! I know, long time no blog. I guess I get like that sometimes. You know, a little reclusive? I've been going through so much personally that I just needed to step away and focus on where I was and what I was doing at the moment. But I didn't forget about you guys. I am on Facebook every day these days playing around and giving out tidbits about my day and state of mind at any given moment. Sometimes over sharing :P Things you never wanted to know about your favorite author! But hey, that's just who I am. Real. Human. Flawed.

But let's get to the juicy stuff. Everyone wants to know what the deal is, right? Here's the deal. Number one...I look hawt! Heeheehee! Yeah that's me! Uh huh. Take a close look, can't you see the mischief behind those eyes? I am SO up to no good. But that's good news for you all because that means I am coming up with all kinds of freakishly weird shit to entertain you.

Case in point, the second GATHERERS book, STEALING KATHRYN.

Isn't that an awesome cover? Love it. I am a lucky gal, and I get to pass the luck on to you all.

The thing I love about the GATHERERS series is that I can take it in all kinds of weird directions. The hero in this story is so twisted by the energy he reaps for his people he is nothing but a base creature really, thinking only about what he wants and caring nothing for anyone else. This is an unfortunate turn of events for our heroine because, unbeknown to her, he wants her. It's almost like the retelling of a dark fairytale we all know, but with a few more layers and a touch more darkness.

Meanwhile, back at home base, is undergoing reconstruction. Rather like it's owner! The current site is, admittedly, out of date. It is NIGHTWALKER-centric and, as you all know, I'm not just about the NIGHTWALKERS anymore. You've made some complaints about having difficulty navigating the site and not finding the updated information that you want and I have heard you. But this is going to mean some serious changes, some you may not like. For instance, the chatroom and notice boards are going to be taken down. They've been all but dead anyway and are basically only a home for spammers. Jerks. I would much rather spend the bandwidth entertaining all of you guys. I hope I pull it off.

Books. I have A LOT of them coming out this year. I have an anthology called NOCTURNAL with a very primal story in it called THE PHOENIX PROJECT. Wanna see a spooky cover?

How's this for a blend of sexy and dark? But pay attention to the story within. You may see these people in the future.


Okay now let's get back to current events. I have a stand alone book coming out I think will thrill you. Once again I have created a whole new world, and by new I do mean...not Earth as we know it. Possibly not Earth at all. Probably not Earth at all. LOL. I left that open to your interpretation. And...oh...probably mine too!

DRINK OF ME is the name of the book but, alas, I have no cover for you at present. They are working on it hard and fast over at Kensington. Now, it's not planned to be a series. Frankly, I sometimes get tired of writing within a series. Creatively speaking anyway. I like to do new things. Keep my brain fresh. Keep entertaining you in whole new ways you haven't seen before. That doesn't mean I won't ever go back to the NIGHTWALKERS. (*cough* *cough* JASMINE *cough* *cough*) or the SHADOWDWELLERS, it just means I like to keep it fresh. I mean, don't you get tired of the same old crap over and over again? Of course you do. I like to change it up.

For instance...let's talk about JAX. Who the hell is JAX? Well, hmm...good question. Let's just say she is an author who writes for Aphrodisia, you know...Kensington's super naughty erotica line of trade-sized paperbacks. She has a book coming out this fall as well. And since I am such a good friend of hers (ahem) I thought I would debut her cover in this blog for you :) Wanna talk strange new worlds? Wanna talk about alien sex?

Then let's talk about THE BID. This is such a perfect representation of the story within this book I can't even tell brought me to tears. I mean, after all I the book. Yes. I most certainly have. It's a much naughtier book than anything Jacquelyn Frank would write...and I've been pretty naughty already! But JAX is a lot like me (ahem) in that she creates in-depth new worlds with all new rules and then breaks all those rules. (I mean look at her, she's BLUE!! And she's a SEXY blue!!) I can guarantee you'll be hearing from JAX again in the future.

Okay I think that's everything. Heh. I may be quiet for a long time, but when I have something to say, it's a whopper, aint it? That reminds me, I am doing only three scheduled signings this year. Signing one is for STEALING KATHRYN'S release at Fireside Books in Forest City, NC. The date is May 1st and the time is from 6-8:00. Plenty of time to do what you have to do that day and then tuck the kidlets in with a sitter and enjoy a couple of hours with me.

Fireside Books & Gifts
2270 Hwy 74A Byp., Ste. 509
Forest City, NC 28043

The second signing of the year is in Tennessee. Saturday May 8th, for STEALING KATHRYN's release, at SHERLOCKS BOOKS in Lebanon, TN. Thank you to Blood Lust for the invitation!! I think the time will be 1-4:00. Three whole hours! Trapped there with nothing to do but talk to you all and sign your books! Heh!

And my third...yep, you guessed it! September 16th in New Jersey at the AUTHORS AFTER DARK weekend! YEE HAW!! WOO HOO! I am so psyched about this year's event! We had a great time last year (excluding my little foray into the disgusting little hospital they forced me to stay at. Eww. I mean...eww!) This year we will not have any of that! I will make it to the signing in one piece! I have been working on my core strength and balance and won't be tripping over my own feet and cracking my head open this time! I am thrilled to have Susan Sizemore as one of our guest authors. I am such a fan! (SQUEE!!) And of course all my favorite ladies who are returning this year. We are hoping to get a ton of baskets for the raffle and the donations to our pet charities (no pun intended). Maybe we'll even get more puppy visitors this year! I loved the puppies from last year and I know for a fact at least one of them was adopted!

That's my schedule. I know it's not a lot, but I need to write more than I need to travel. But I do promise to make it to the west coast sometime soon. I know somewhere out there someone would love to have me come sign at their store and I would love to go visit. Maybe, you know, California somewhere. I've never been to California. Or the Oregon coast. Heck, I'd even love to go to Seattle.

But I digress into shameless coaxing. I hope you have found this to be a nice informative blog. Making up for my absence. I will try to do better. I swear. But hey, it's quality that counts, not quantity. And look at all you learned today!!

Anyway, love you all. Thanks so much for bearing with me. I gotta go to bed!!
Hugs and Kitties,
Jacki Frank

Yes, the title of my post is "Coffee." It's all I can manage this morning, mainly because I'm drinking it by the gallon.

Rough night. You know, the kind where you get out of bed and feel like the bed beat you up? Like instead of sleeping, you'd spent the night in the ring with Mike Tyson? Your back, neck, and hips shouldn't hurt after sleeping.

Not that I slept. It was one of those tossy-turny nights, and when I did get little naps between the long periods of wide-awake, I had bad dreams. Nightmares. Maybe I can turn some of the nightmares into stories, but only after I kind of forget them a little.

Because they were scary.

Do you ever have nights like that? Where you can't get your act together in the morning because the night was so bad?
