I'm Guest Posting at Fangtastic Books today


I'm guest posting at Fangtastic Books today. Stop by and leave a comment for a chance to win my e-novel, Slipping the Past.

Here's the blurb: 

Some love affairs last a lifetime…others never end.

Fifty years into the future, if you’re one of the damned, you don’t run for your life, you run to save your soul. Jocelyn Miller is wanted for crimes she committed before she was born. Homeless, blind and out in the elements on one of the coldest nights of the year, her desperation results in a bad decision. When Jocelyn and her brother Nate rob a convenience store, Jocelyn comes face to face with her worst nightmare and greatest love, a reaper named Gabriel.

Gabriel Solaris is an Enforcer, a genetically enhanced psychic often referred to as a reaper for his ability to take souls, and he’s charged with collecting Jocelyn’s. When he finds Jocelyn outside the store, he’s sure she’s up to something illegal. Proving it isn’t necessary. He holds a warrant and it’s all he needs. But the closer Gabriel gets to Jocelyn, the more he begins to question his duty and why he believes her claims of innocence. When Jocelyn tells him she loved him once, Gabriel loses control and kisses her. Instead of taking her soul, he gives her a week to prove innocence in her past-life crimes, something he has no authority to grant.

I hope you'll stop by and visit.

This is one of the most imaginative novels I've ever read, with one of the fastest paced, smoothest fight scenes between one of the deadliest villains created and Gabriel, that had me on the edge of my seat. In fact, the entire novel did.

Thanks, Arlene. This book challenged my creativity and world-building. I hope all who read it enjoy by reapers as well as my villian. I've been working on a novel that follows this story and one of the cuts from the novel, posted on Fangtastic Books, has been recycled into it.
Stop by and check out the chops from the cutting room floor.

Just did, before I read this. It's a great interview, one that I'm gonna read again when I'm more awake.
