Hello Everyone I'm New Here


My name is Roxanne Rhoads. You might know me if frequent the site paranormal book blog Fang-tastic Books.

I always have authors dropping by for guest blogs, interviews and lots of giveaways there. I also occasionally promote my own work ;-)

Yes, I am a writer as well as a book blogger and reviewer, some days I think my whole world revolves around words. But I am not complaining, I love books- both reading and writing them.

I am thrilled that I was invited to contribute to this new site (thanks ladies for the invite) and I'll try to post as often as possible, but if I miss a few weeks you can find me over at Fang-tastic Books for sure.

My first post here comes just in time to announce the release of two brand new paranormal erotica anthologies that happen to contain a few of my stories. Each book was just released this past week.

I do hope you'll drop by the sites and check them out, even possibly purchase them if you think they look like something you'd like :-)

The new Circlet Press anthology which contains my story "A Last Goodbye" is now available for purchase.

Like That Spark is a collection of short stories that explore the sensuality and eroticism of the moment when two characters finally realize they are meant to be together. These are tales of relationships and the beginnings of romantic and sexual connections. The stories here will challenge you and your notions of what constitutes a relationship in the first place. You will not find the common tame romance tale here.

Here erotic connections are represented by the science fiction and fantasy worlds; a realm of infinite possibilities. Nothing is ever as it seems. There are mythical kingdoms, distant planets, futuristic cities, surreal dreamscapes, sultry bedchambers, and even the furthest reaches of space to tempt and entice you.

Clear Sight in the Double Full Moon Night by Shawn Erin

It contains my story "Halloween Surprise"

Here's a blurb:

A collection of five erotic short stories with paranormal themes.

Widow’s Walk
By Giselle Renarde

In all the time Marley's produced and starred in his web-only paranormal series, Ghost Hunting on a Shoestring, he's never encountered a spectre like this one! Lottie haunts the Widow's Walk of a New England house, where she waits for her lost-at-sea fiancé to come home. As Marley discovers, rumours of Lottie's despair have been greatly exaggerated. She wants a man – any man – and this girl takes what she wants!

Halloween Surprise
By Roxanne Rhoads

Alcina and Estra are ready to enjoy everything Halloween has to offer them – food, fun, and, most of all – the pleasures of the flesh. After enjoying each other’s bodies for hours they decide it’s time to find a man. Luckily for Michael he’s the one that happens to cross their path. After quickly deciding that he is exactly what they were looking for, they convince him to take them back to his place for a wild Halloween ménage ‘a trios. He ends up getting more than he bargained for with a sexy, but shocking, Halloween surprise.

Third Time Lucky
by Kitti Bernetti

Sally can't seem to forget her old lover. Maybe it’s something to do with the day he jilted her at the altar. Something makes her journey back to the same old church every year to try and exorcise her demons. But for Sally, a mysteriously warm evening and a careless stroll through the eerie churchyard catapults her into a sinister world she had never imagined, one which co-exists on the fringes of our own. The extraordinary and unsettling lover she encounters there offers her delights she can only dream of, but what does he expect in return…?

The Washstand
By Elizabeth Coldwell

The Victorian washstand is a real bargain, but Ros never wonders why it might be quite so cheap – until she's woken by splashing noises in the middle of the night. Soon she is being visited by a ghostly figure with an exhibitionistic streak. But who is he – and how far will Ros have to go to grant him the release he craves?

The Tree
By Roger Frank Selby

An accomplished but plane-wrecked aviatrix, stranded on a desert island, would have a bleak sex life – one would imagine. But as all hopes of her rescue fade, naked in a leafy glade, she finds solace among the branches of a strange tree surrounded by exotic mushrooms. And who could resist toying with and sampling mushrooms shaped like … that?

Her waking relationship with the tree, its soft boughs and her playthings become woven into increasingly vivid dreams of a Viking invader. The mighty Bork and his longship crew are on an eternal quest to ravish her, until finally, reality itself is called into question.

Well, that concludes my post for today. I do hope to drop by often. Until next time...

Welcome and thanks for telling us about the anthologies. The stories sound great and I LOVE those two covers!! Your blog is wonderful too, by the way :)

Roxanne, what a great blog you have. Easy to navigate, and anyone who writes paranormal should hop onboard hoping you'd review them. The Last Goodbye seems like something I'd really enjoy. I plan to start using my netbook as a reader. Thanks for adding to my fun list.
