Happy Memorial Day!

Yeah, I know, Memorial Day isn't until Monday. But I still felt the urge to say Happy Memorial Day, especially since my short story "What Heroes Do" is up at Flash Fiction Online. I'm so proud of this story, not just because this was my first professional story sale (WOOT!) but because of the message within it's short length.

New Review!

Tammy from The Pen and Muse has written a glowing review for Far and Away.

"Perfect for momentary jolts in between the daily moments of drudgery, Far and Away is loaded with slices of life that sting with humor and linger in memory."

Final Retribution: Book Three of the Angelic Chronicles by Marion Webb-De Sisto





This third and final book of the trilogy is an exploration of how opposites attract. No one is more evil than Archangel Samael and no one is more untainted than Angel Manah. These two characters should never hold any interest in each other and yet they do. It was a challenge for me, as a writer, to convince the reader of such an unlikely relationship. I do hope I’ve managed to do this. It was certainly enjoyable for me to demonstrate how what began as a total dislike of each other in Book One eventually changed into attraction and ultimately love. The following is a little breakdown of these two differing angelic individuals about whom the storyline of this book revolves around.

Samael was the most radiant first archangel, who fell from grace and became the Devil. He’s handsome and charismatic, but also cruel and embittered. His mood swings are like quicksilver, but anger frequently dominates him. He is the hero of this story, albeit the anti hero. This archangel rules Abbadon/Hell with an iron fist and has lost the love of Archangel Malkura to his brother. Although completely wicked, there is a hidden reason for his drastic change of character from good to evil. Even Samael has no memory of the true cause and mistakenly believes it is because of an event that never actually happened. In this book his attention has turned to Angel Manah and he hopes to either persuade or coerce her into becoming his consort. In the process of attempting to do this he falls in love with her, but Samael can only claim her if he becomes redeemed.

Manah is Malkura’s pure essence angel and is the heroine of the story. She is beautiful, compassionate and forthright. Compared to Samael, Manah is total purity in contrast to his darkness and wicked nature. Yet she is the only one who can alter his path of damnation; even Malkura could not do that. Manah abhors Samael’s evil acts, but is gradually falling in love with him. However, she knows she cannot be his unless he becomes redeemed. She believes this will never happen and is resigned to living her life without him. Manah is the thorn in his side, rejecting his amorous advances and reminding him with her forthright comments that his evil nature has rewarded him with exile and loneliness. The angel also dismisses his amorous interest in her as either being motivated by the fact that she reminds him of Malkura or it is merely a cruel charade. Considering angels to be inferior to archangels, this seraph cannot believe Samael’s acts of affection are genuine.

Busy busy

The moment I get my new ac adapter in the mail, the motherboard on my laptop craps out on me. I've spent the last week redownloading things that I use and trying to get the info I have off of my old laptop's harddrive. And there are some things on there I really want, like the book trailer for Dream Lover.

It also means that I'm trying to catch up with updating my website and blog. I know I forgot to post on here that I was guest blogging at Creative Chatter last week. I also got the link for the roundtable interview I did with Romance Radio Network. Today I'm guest blogging at MuseItUp Publishing. That should be it for guest posts until Dream Lover is released in August.


WIP update:

Of Wolf and Man has been sent out to publishers. I'm shooting for the stars with this one, so it may be a while before it actually sees the light of day.

Gray Magic is on hiatus. There's something about that story that just isn't doing it for me right now. Don't know what.

"Smut story" has a new name, White Wolf, and I will be editing and submitting it this week.

Sarah Vargas 4, 5, and 6 are outlined. They will be a stand alone trilogy, meaning that you don't have to read the first three to enjoy these. Maybe I'll label these Part 2: Book 1 or something of the sort.

Blood Moon stats

Blood Moon seems to be doing well. Well enough for me to brag, anyways. LoL

On Fictionwise.com, Blood Moon is currently #45 for Fantasy ebooks. It's also #11 for Eternal Press on Fictionwise.

Maybe this will hit number 1 as well, like Fade to Black did in November 2009.

Crazy week

It feels so good to have internet access again! The AC adapter for my lappy died last week, and I had to order a new one so that I could get online. Yeah, I have a desktop computer, but it's not internet friendly. I use that one to write. So, no internet for a week meant that I couldn't update my site or blog with updates about Far and Away's release. It also meant that I had more time to read and write. It was actually nice.

So, I'm back! My mini tour for Far and Away starts up on Saturday. Don't miss the fun!
