Happy Halloween!

Or, as my son's school calls it, "Fall Harvest."

Yeah, I'm a day early, but I'm going to be pretty busy tomorrow, so I figured I'd get my post in now.

Tomorrow is my anniversary, so while my son is at school, my husband and I will go out to celebrate. What's funny is that we got married on Halloween thinking how fun they'd be later -- we could dress up as bride and groom! (We're dorks.)

What we didn't think about was kids, and how, once we had them, we'd spend the next twelve years or so taking them out trick-or-treating, and we'd spend the rest of our lives with kids ringing our doorbell for hours on our anniversary.

Yeah...poor planning on our part! *g*

Still, I enjoy Halloween, and even before I started reading paranormal romance, I always read something scary or paranormal around this time of year. Usually I went with Stephen King, but since I found paranormal romance, I've been reading various authors and their takes on vampires, demons, and shapeshifters.

I've just finished Lara Adrian's Veil of Midnight, and I'm about to start Jaci Burton's The Darkest Touch.

What about you -- what are you reading right now? Something in the spirit of Halloween?

Vampires, Witches, Demons and More!

October has been a crazy crazy month so far with all kinds of goody goodness! It's hard to believe that Halloween is less than a week away though.

I have been celebrating two new releases in ebook and a new print book this month over at my annual DAMM blog on MySpace.


We have had vampire week, witch week and are just finishing up shapeshifter week. The last week is going to be devoted to Demons and we will continue to give away prizes until halloween.

The final chapter in the Pentacles of Magick, The Revealing is now available. Also now available is my first vampire book, Awaken which is part of the Vampire Oracle series at Cobblestone Press.

And in print news...Pentacles of Magick, the series collection is now available for pre order at

Please visit my website at to learn more and to link to the DAMM blog for lots of fun and prizes.


I've also been gearing up for the November NANO writing marathon that begins on November 1st. I recently wrapped up a short story so I could concentrate on plotting for the next shapeshifter book. 50K in one month is a huge goal for me but i'm really psyched up and anxious to give it a try.

I am also working on an appearance schedule for 2009 but I do have one last day for 2008. If you happen to be anywhere near Charlotte, NC, I will be signing on November 1st from 4-6 pm with authors Angela Knight, Leigh Greenwood, Sabrina Luna, and Kalayna Price at the Northlake Borders in North Charlotte.

Don't forget to head over to the DAMM blog and leave some comments on any of the fun posts as I have lots and lots of books to giveaway still.

Have a good one!

A huge thanks to everyone who responded. I had a fabulous time reading about your costumes and I'm delighted to discover that I'm not the only Halloween lover around!

I had my husband pick a random number and the winner is......(drum roll)
Pierced Freak!! Love the name :) If you'll send your snail mail to: I'll get your ARC in the mail!! For everyone else I hope you'll check out my web site, I intend to have more contests before Darkness Revealed hits the shelves.

Thanks again,

Happy Holloween!!

I love, love, love October...not because it's autumn (I'm a huge sun and fun kind of gal) and I detest the thought of the coming winter...but, what could be better than Halloween??? I remember when I was young getting to dress up in my favorite costume and spend the whole night as someone else? I've always blamed my love for Halloween for my decision to major in acting while I was in college :) Even when I married and had children and was supposedly an upright citizen (cough) I use to spend the entire day putting the most gruesome make-up on the boys for Trick or Treating. Poor things, all they wanted was a Ninja Turtle costume and I would make them into rotting zombies or metalic spacemen!

So, I hope to get you all in the mood for the festivities with an ARC for my next Guardian novel DARKNESS REVEALED. This is Cezar's story so I hope you'll enjoy!

To win, just tell me your very favorite Halloween costume when you were a child (or adult!) and I'll chose a random number to pick the winner! Oh, and in fairness, I'll reveal that my very favorite costume was when my husband and I went to a party and I made him into Jack the Ripper and I was one of his victims! Strange, I never wanted to be a princess or playgirl...give me something that just crawled from the grave any day :)

The very best to all of you!

Busy, Busy Bianca

This is a great time of year and things have been going very well, indeed! I got to hang with Jacki and a bunch of other great writers at Lora Leigh's RAW a few weeks ago, I just got back from a fantastic sci fi con and I'm looking forward to a new release in just a few weeks.

Oh! And Sweeter Than Wine comes out in print at the end of the month! It's a sexy paranormal where my cat-shifters and vamps meet. Here's a little bit about it:

Sweeter Than Wine by Bianca D'Arc
ISBN: 978-1-59998-981-5
Length: 232 Pages
Price: 12.50
Publication Date: October 28, 2008

An abused woman has the power to unite werefolk, fey and vampire against an evil that would see them all dead—if she can learn to love again.

Christy lies near death after a brutal beating by her estranged husband. Her preternatural friends reach a desperate conclusion: The only way to save her is to turn her. Sebastian steps forward to take on the burden of being her Maker.

For him it’s no burden at all. She draws him as no other woman has for centuries. With the help of a werecougar friend, Sebastian teaches Christy about her new life and abilities, making certain she is as strong as he can make her. Only then can she face her abusive ex-husband and put her old life behind her. But Christy’s ex-husband is involved in something more dangerous than any of them had guessed.

Vampire, were, and even a fey knight must work together to put an end to the threatening evil. To overcome her past, help keep the darkness at bay, and fight for a new life with Sebastian, Christy must draw on all of her new-found strength.

Will it be enough?

Warning, this title contains explicit sex, graphic language, ménage a trois, hot neck biting and werecougar stroking.

You can get more information about this book on the Samhain site, HERE, or you can even pre-order it from Amazon, HERE. In fact, all three of my upcoming print releases are already available for pre-order on Amazon. October is Sweeter Than Wine, December is Davin's Quest (Book 2 of my futuristic Resonance Mates series), and next March is FireDrake, my next Dragon Knights novel.
In keeping with the paranormal theme of the season, my next ebook release is a vampire story called One & Only. It'll be out in ebook formats on November 7th and is the first in a series of three vamp novellas that will be put together into a single print volume sometime next year. I'm very excited to see these coming out again. (They were previously released in much shorter versions by a publisher that is now out of business.) These new versions of the stories are much longer and more intense. I think (hope!) you'll like them!

For now, you can get more information on the Samhain site, HERE, but that URL will change once the book is released, so check it while it's hot! LOL. Of course, you can always find it on my site, HERE. And just to whet your appetite, here's a little bit about it:

ISBN: 978-1-60504-264-0
Length: Novella
Price: 3.50
Publication Date: November 7, 2008

A deadly crash changes the fate of one lonely vampire.

Vampire enforcer Atticus Maxwell stands at the edge of his own oblivion…until the faint heartbeat of a desperately wounded mortal woman calls him back. The terrible crash that almost took both their lives has brought him a charming, intriguing woman who just might give him a reason to live again.

Lissa was headed for a conference at a resort in a last-ditch attempt to find a job. Instead, on a rain-slick mountain road that almost killed her, she finds the love of her life. A love with the most eligible, reclusive vineyard owner in Napa Valley—one that isn’t quite human.

No barrier—not even breaking the news to Lissa’s friends—seems too great to hold back their blossoming love. Until they learn the accident that brought them together wasn’t an accident at all, but a murder attempt by an unknown enemy.

Atticus saved Lissa once. Can he keep her that way in the face of a renewed threat?

Warning: This book contains graphic language, hot neck biting, outdoor loving and a dangerous man with a killer smile.

The second of these stories, Rare Vintage, will be released in February and the third, called Phantom Desires, will come out sometime later in 2009. All three together make up the Brotherhood of Blood and will probably go into print under that title.

Now aside from that little commercial, I've been writing up a storm. I finished a cat-shifter urban fantasy novel for which I'm trying to find a home, and have nearly finished my next Resonance Mates book, called Grady's Awakening. It's been a busy time, but very productive. Now I'm looking forward to Halloween, how about you? ;-)

October and Me are good good freinds...

Hey everyone! Today is my day, and I have a lot to do aside from blogging. I need to get ready to leave to drive up to Albany for AlbaCON! I'm on a bunch of panels and get to hangout with Bianca D'Arc all weekend. Not bad for my last big event of the season. If your in the Albany area, I will be signing at noon on saturday, and Bianca at 4pm saturday. So come and see us, we have cookies.
Ok not really, but we have goodies.

Its October, and my favorite month of the year. Forget the awesome programing on SCIFI channel, forget the fact that MAX PAYNE is out this month in the theaters. Or that I get to start making apple pie and go apple picking. The leaves in NY changing rapidly? Nope guess again. Give up? Well poo!

No I'm a halloweenie through and through, and this is the first year im not going out trick or treating. Yes, I still do trick or treat. Why? because I can get away with it. I dont look like I'm going to be 30 next May, So I can get away with it. Will probably be able to get away till I'm 40. Hows that for slick? Anyways, this year Im giving out candy at Joe's parents house, which should be fun, then hitting a costume party later on. Nothing as fantastic as the ones Audra hits in Scotland, but its a chance to be social. I think Im going to be my old standby this yeat, Pirate Stella. Heh. I have enough Pirate gear around to start my own crew. Arrgh be darr.

So lets see, whats new in the Eververse... Well Audra and I have been hard at work on a new book, new series, new world. We decided to step away from the Eververse for a while, get this story out that is begging to be written, and its been very prosterous. In a week we have almost hit 45k, and have outlined the other stories in the series. I'm super excited about this book, and it's keeping us writing after a very unhelpful progress slump.

OOh and I'm happy to announce that Romantic Times gave The Soft Edge of Midnight 4STARS in their November issue! This is what RT has to say:

Once again the Price sisters come up with a darkly original tale set in their Eververse world. With an assortment of shapeshifters, witches, demons and the fallen, it's a feast of supernatural characters. The romantic leads are an interesting pair of unicorn-shifters, but the demons take center stage with more personality, more plotlines and more sex.

So excited! That review as a year coming, and we are super glad it finally came out. Very awesome!

So its getting to Holiday time isnt it? Im SO not ready, and this year everyone is getting gift cards cuz I have too much on my plate. But, its about time i start getting my Holiday card list ready to go. So if you would like a card from the Eververse this year, email me your snail mail address at and Ill add your name to the list. Also, if you have read the books, lemme know which character was your favorite, and I can see about sending your name to their place for their Holiday card list. And be on the look out for the November Contest. That one is a great big prize you will just love.

So our contest winner from last month is MYA. Congratulations. Please email me at and tell me which print book you want so I can get it in the mail lickity split.

So this month, in the spirit of our RT review, Im giving away a e copy of The Soft Edge of Midnight and a print copy choice of another of our books. I wanna know What your favorite halloween candy is. Personally, I LOVE me some of the Taffy b-b-b-bats, either the strawberry or the chocolate and I love anything Wonka, Bottlecaps most of all. Yeah I get my sugar on when I go a-treating. It's how I do.

So comment here, and maybe win a print book and a cool e book. Also, I'll be choosing two other winners for a Halloween prize pack from me, filled with some cool promo, and a I DO IT DEMONSTYLE bumpersticker for your car.

So thanks for stopping by to see what I have to say this month, and If your interested in keeping tabs on the progress of our new book, check out our personal blog for all the updates! Im going to leave you with the video we did recently for Frost and Flame, the third in the Eververse series. You can see the rest of our videos at our YOU TUBE page. Masquerade will be out early 2009.

OOH. and for those who dont know, Frost and Flame, along with all the other Eververse books and the Paranormal genre books from our publisher, Tease Publishing, are 20% off for the next week at ARe. Stop by if your curious and or pick up the books your missing!
