Just wanted to update everyone on the progress of some of my current WIP the first is a M/F Paranormal Romance called Mated to Myth (Check the previous blog post for the pitch) I'm about 60% complete now. I really like the story and plan to get it wrapped up by the end of the month. As far as whom I'll submit it to, I planned to send it and the second one I'm working on both to Silver. The second (that I just mentioned) is a Paranormal mange story involving shapeshifters (Werecat). The working Title is Mate Calling. Once both thiese are wrapped up I plan to jump head first into all the Holiday stories I have started for both my publishers. I'd like to have both Xmas and Halloween done by end of July. Though I have a plan or two for a Jun/July release with Rebel.
Did I mention that I could not be happier with Lustful Reflections Performance! If you have not grabbed a copy be certain not to miss it. I also have a short Western Menage story coming out from Rebel in May.
If you had a chance to read my latest pieces please let me know what you thought (honestly).

Drum roll please..... Here are my final pitch(s) for the  Pitch-ilicious Blog Hop Contest!

Mate Calling…

Alexandra Hinkle is a mountain lion shifter, a secret that has kept her isolated most her life. Moving into the same small town the Hyatt brothers call home, she discovers her ability might not be as unique as she thought. When a string of deadly accidents plague the town, Alex wonders if the three men stalking her are up to more than ensuring the continuation of the species, and if she is their next target.

Mated to Myth…

The creatures of the Myth have long haunted the dreams of mankind. Now through Mia, a scientifically altered Myth hybrid, a group of militant humans are hunting them down. But, the radical human group never counted on the earth Demon capturing Mia’s heart and causing her to question everything she’s ever been told. 

 
 
After some great comments and cruising other sites I've come to 2 conclusions.
1. I'm the only who writes Paranormal Erotic Romance in this thing.
2. I really suck at squishing it into 3 sentences.
So here is take two on both Pitches!
Pitch one - Mated to Myth

The creatures of the Myth have long haunted the dreams of mankind. Now through Mia, a scientifically altered Myth hybrid, a group of militant humans are hunting them down. However the radical human group never counted on the earth Demon capturing Mia’s heart and causing her to question everything she’s ever been told.  

Pitch two -  

Alexandra Hinkle is a mountain lion shifter, a secret that has kept her alone for most her life. Moving into the same small town the Hyatt brothers call home, she discovers her ability might not be as unique as she thought. Now with the three men seemingly stalking her at every turn, Alex has to wonder if they are simply looking to ensure the continuation of their species or could they be responsible for the string of deadly accidents plaguing the area.  


 
 
Three Line Pitch…

Mate Calling:

Alexandra Hinkle has a secret, one that has kept her alone for most her life which is probably why, she had no problem just pulling up stakes and moving half way across the country to the small mountain city of Red Cliff Colorado.

The Hyatt brothers have called Red Cliff their home since they were kits, and the town folk have always watched out for the troublesome threesome despite their unique abilities to become ferocious mountain lions.

Now that they can see the means to keep their blood line alive how do they convince the elusive Alexandra to answer their Mate Call and how to they put a stop to all the accidents that seem to surround the woman at every turn?

 
 
Alright here is what going on... I am taking part in the Pitch-ilicious Blog Hop Contest which means I am going to post a three line pitch for my current WIP. Folk participating will come by and give feedback. So dont worry if you feel lost a bit cause you know us crazy authors we tend to be a bit off sometimes 8) JLO

Three Line Pitch for Mated to Myth

  Mia is a Myth hybrid, a manmade mixture of creatures that haunt the darkest part of mankind’s dreams.
Knox is Demon in search of someone he thought lost.
When their worlds collide it will either spell disaster or passion unlike anything either has ever experienced.

This also lets me share my Newest work which will be released on April 17th!
Lustful Reflections: A Witch Among Werewolves Menage
Blurb:
Picture
Haylie Fairbanks is the youngest child in a legendary witching family. Of course being at the top of the magic food chain doesn't come without consequences. Wizards like Adrian Caproete will always be plotting your downfall. Now Caproete has enlisted help from the plane lying on the other side of the mirror and he’ll do whatever it takes to bring down the Fairbanks, including kidnapping Haylie and ransoming her for an amulet said to be able to drain a witch’s power.

 Enyalios, Gar, and Anut are werewolf warriors of Eridu, a world parallel to our own and reached by stepping through the reflective surface of an enchanted mirror. The mission that brings them to our plane seemed simple enough when the wizard proposed it, but one look at their quarry and a chase through the open air market in Morocco proves this is far from the easy snatch and grab they expected.

After realizing they can't turn the beauty over to Caproete for any fee, the men decide to instead offer the Fairbanks elder an unexpected option. They will allow Haylie to remain in their keep until the danger passes. Of course none of the three expect the girl’s father to make a counter offer, one that could certainly be a pleasure to fulfill.

Caught in a plot that could cost her family everything, Haylie must decide if she can submit to what's best for her family and give herself over to the care of the Werewolves, the very men who sought to kidnap and trade her to her enemy. Men who offer more than a home and family, but the hopes of a love unmatched by anything Haylie has ever known.    

Hope You Like
