HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

And hold on to your hats for a busy January from me, usually a most erratic blogger :). I have guests throughout this month, who'll be entertaining you with all or any of the following: fiction, fantasy, fury, flippance, fetish, fascination and above all, FUN, I hope!

See what it's all about and who's lined up HERE.



Today is a special day for me, as the Immortal Fire anthology from loveyoudivine is now in print HURRAH!
Buy it at Amazon HERE.

I was invited to take part in this antho by the wonderfully generous dontkickmycane aka the great author Jaime Samms who has 2 titles in the antho and who'll be joining us later this month with her own day :).

The authors include Jaime, me, Bryn Colvin, Adrienne Brennan, M. J. King and Nix Winter - who also created the fabulous covers.
(and it was particularly refreshing to be writing with some authors from MY side of the Atlantic LOL).

What would you do with an infinite stretch of days? With immortality?
Among the pages of this book, immortals of all stripes must decide what to do with the endless years before them. Some want to live forever, some will to give it all up in the blink of an eye if it will end their loneliness or save a lover. Some earned their immortality, and some had it thrust upon them. A few don't even know they have it. Some are human, some are not. But they all have one thing in common. They don't want to go it alone.

Six authors weave tales of love on an eternal scale, between men who have learned that nothing is impossible, and dreams can come true if you just want it badly enough. And have enough time to work at it. Forever is a long time.




Dawn of The Seraphs – Adrianne Brennan
In a future where psychics called Seraphs belong to the ANGEL institute, Tamar must team up with Kir, an old rival, to save ANGEL from destructive forces. Can the two Seraphs find love and passion in a dark, bureaucratic world which seeks to manipulate and destroy their kind?

Timeless – Nix Winter
Different worlds, different expectations, but when a Captain saves a Prince, it may be the Prince's love that saves the Captain.

Almost Human – M. King
In a world where everything has changed, two immortals flee for sanctuary. A violent, pitiless order pursues them, but why? When Kalyan and Lazarus made the mistake of stealing from the Agisci monks, their theft revealed a dark truth. Now they must expose it, or let it claim them.

Black Roses – Jaime Samms
Nothing grows in captivity, except maybe lust and the desire for freedom.
Death and The Immortal – Bryn Colvin
William returns home to find a beautiful stranger collapsed on his doorstep. An ancient yew tree has been felled, its dryad is in peril and the world is a far stranger place than this gentle curator had ever imagined.

Out of Time – Clare London
Two vampires; immortal life; an anguished courtship. Ambrus, ancient and hedonistic, revels in his powers. But Edward is shocked and bitter when he’s turned against his will. Irresistibly drawn to each other, it may take a century for them to reach the love Ambrus wants – and that Edward needs.

Windblown – Jaime Samms
With immortality, Triann and Garith expected lifetimes to love one another, not the windy, empty landscape of broken hearts, and one mortal man could bring them back together, or tear them apart.



I'm particularly grateful to Jaime for nudging me on this. Any why's that, Clare?! sez my Muse, rolling his eyes.

Because I'm starting the year with my (frighteningly frequent) diva-angst, where I don't think I'll ever write again, let alone anything decent etc etc. But not only was I thrilled to be with these authors in such a great project, I am also immodestly proud of my story Out of Time. I loved writing a vampire tale again, I loved the steady Ambrus, whose centuries-old immortal confidence was shaken by the newly-turned Edward, a young man full of fear and anger and hostility - and passion. And I loved twisting the idea of immortality being a fabulous gift we should all crave right on its head.

There's a FREE READ at loveyoudivine HERE where you can read an excerpt from all of them, to whet your whistle :), plus a great Scavenger Hunt that's running for one more month, to win a great basket of goodies. Details HERE.
