True love’s kiss isn’t enough for this Blud princess. But blood and music may win her heart forever… .
Delilah S. Dawson’s delightfully dark series takes readers into a clever new world of endless discoveries and sensuous encounters that will leave them breathless.
After four years crammed in a suitcase, drained and unconscious, Ahnastasia Feodor, Crown Princess of Freesia, is not sure which calls to her more: the sound of music or the scent of blood. The source of both is the handsome and mysterious Casper Sterling, once the most celebrated and self-centered musician in Sangland. Fortunately, bleeding one’s subjects dry is expected of Blud royalty. Much to Ahna’s frustration, however, the debauched and reckless enigma—he is definitely not a Bludman, though not exactly human either—is her only ticket back to her snow-rimmed and magical homeland. Ahna needs Casper’s help to defeat an evil sorceress and claim her throne—if she doesn’t drain him first. But as they team up for a harrowing journey filled with pirates and painted ladies, daimons and dashing Bludmen, her craving for blood becomes an unrelenting hunger of the heart… .
“No sophomore series slump here, as Dawson invites readers back into the land of Sang, where Bluds (vampires) rule and Pinkies (humans) struggle to survive. Told mostly from the viewpoint of a dethroned Blud princess, Wicked as She Wants is delightfully edgy with hidden charms— and Ahnastasia is definitely no shrinking violet. Dawson is on the fast track to the top of the genre!” -RT Book Review - 4 1/2 stars, HOT!

Remember those steampunk flamingos in THE THREE LIVES OF LYDIA in the CARNIEPUNK anthology from Gallery Books and featuring works by Rachel Caine, Jennifer Estep, Seanan McGuire, Rob Thurman, Kevin Hearne, and many more, including le moi?
Of course you don’t. It’s not out until July 23.
Hint: my story includes clockwork flamingos.
“Arthropod sub-species of the Insecta class. A creature whose instinctual and physical qualities have adapted so uniquely to the modern urban environment that it has rendered itself, by nature of camouflage, virtually invisible in it’s normal habitat. When seen in isolation ‘Litter Bugs’ appear to be composed of everyday ‘found’ objects.”
Mark’s beautiful Litter Bugs are made using materials like eyeglasses arms for antennae, clock hands for legs, and covers and pages from books that form delicate wings and carapaces. There are plenty of tiny gears, carefully cut-up tin boxes, fuses, and other beautiful old objects as well.
Each specimen has its own common and scientific names, both of which are based on some of the objects from which a particular creature has been composed. All of the insects are gathered in two beautiful zoological posters entitled A Compendium of Carabid & Terrestrial Detritus and A Treasury of Winged Insectum & Metamorphosibus.
DUDE. I see a lot of steampunk insects, but these guys take the copper cake.
Yep, that’s me, reading the first chapter. Just for you.
THE PECULIAR PETS OF MISS PLEASANCE is the next e-novella in my steampunk paranormal Blud series for Pocket, and it’s out tomorrow!
Or, technically, tonight at midnight.
A lady with a penchant for pets meets a sexy fireman in this magical and saucy steampunk eNovella from the author of Wicked as They Come.
In a world ruled by blood, live pets are rare and kindness rarer still. London pet shop owner Frannie Pleasance has a mysterious way with animals and keeps her charges (and heart) locked in a veritable Eden. She thinks Casper Sterling is just another stray…until she takes in the troublesome lodger (and unwelcome suitor) and becomes the victim of a series of strange and dangerous occurrences.
When an unexplained fire threatens to destroy Frannie’s carefully guarded world, firefighter Thom Maccallan is there to extinguish the blaze and help gather the lost creatures. The heat between Frannie and Thom begins to burn,but someone’s still after the lady. Could it be Casper himself, or is Frannie’s new lodger just another victim of fate? Will they be able to figure out who’s pursuing Frannie—and stop them—before she loses everything?
A complete, snack-sized romance in about 150 pages, only $1.99!
