MOON BURNING - A Children of the Moon Novel #3 by Lucy Monroe

Bestselling author Lucy Monroe returns to her hugely popular paranormal world where a woman falls under the spell of the beast who is her one true enemy...

Barr never asked to be made laird over the struggling Donegal clan, or leader of its werewolf pack. But he'll do his duty and although he hasn't yet found his mate, he hopes she will be among his people.

Could this woman be his true mate?

On a mission to save her people from extinction, Sabrine pretends she has no memory in order to gain access to her enemy: the Donegal clan. A raven shifter, she is determined to retrieve the sacred stone that rightfully belongs to her people. But soon she'll be engulfed in her burning desire and growing love for Barr - and the dangerous and inescapable secrets destined to keep them apart...

A New Vampire Thriller From Jason Daniel Kowalczyk

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the release of VAMPIRE LAWMAN, a new horror thriller by Jason Daniel Kowalczyk.

Jason was born in Lorain, Ohio, to Jeanne Furci (now Wysocki) and Stanley John Kowalczyk (1942-2009), grew up in Lehigh Acres, Florida, then Long Beach, California, and returned to Florida to finish High School. He currently resides in Moberly, Missouri with his fiance, Melissa, and her son from a previous relationship, Alex..

For thirty years he lived in Florida, writing as a hobby until he moved to Missouri. His first book, "The Blood Companion," was finally finished in 2007. He later slammed into overdrive and belted out several within the next three years.

Jason has been a writer for almost his entire life. He writes his tales as if he were sitting on the couch together with his readers, having a conversation. Writing the way he does has opened him up to a lot of criticism in his chosen career, but whenever he begins to think about changing his style, he'll get a phone call or an email from a reader telling him how much he or she loved his work and wondering when the next book will be along.

So no matter what happens or how small or large his fan base becomes, Jason will always be grateful for the fans he has and will strive to entertain them every chance he gets.

"Jay is one of the best story-tellers I know. He has a way of painting a picture with his words that really draws you in. He has a vivid imagination and is an open person who always wears his heart on his sleeve."-Melissa Tetreault-


VAMPIRE LAWMAN by Jason Daniel Kowalczyk

The "Blood Companion Series" ended with the Great Disappearance, leaving behind only a few of those who were brought to life over the ten years that the series ran.

Here you learn more of Cacious, who was brought to life in the "Blood Companion" as the poor Vampire that was rotting through his existence. Cacious was born in the early 1800's and has seen plenty through his existence, including the Great Disappearance.

Follow Cacious as he deals with the affects of that event and struggles to keep the city of Alucard Heights under control.
