Debut book launch + Giveaway: TALON is LAUNCHING TODAY by ALICE WADE

Please give a warm welcome to debut author, Alice Wade, joining us today with her spanking new release, Talon

Talon (BOOK LAUNCH TODAY April 7, 2012)
Vampires only fear one name -- Talon. The elven prince and his mate, Kailani, have made it their mission to hunt down the violent vampire covens that have been destroying hundreds of innocent lives in their pursuit of selfish and depraved entertainment. Their strategy would have been fool-proof, except for one problem: Talon and Kailani are vampires too.
But when they enter a castle overrun, they realize they are out of their league. The vampire leader has stolen elven magic, something Talon takes personally and can’t fight alone. This sets them on a path of redemption, destruction and closure. Along the way, they pair up with two humans who are destined to become the family Talon craves.

I’m getting published? Really?
When I opened the email with my acceptance of Talon, I read the email two times before I laughed. I think a few exclamations were yelled out before I started letting my family know.  How do I feel now? Terrified, excited, nervous…excited. Oh, did I say that twice?  I really didn’t intend to have Talon published, but after I took a chance and Eternal Press liked it, I realized I actually had a story that would be embraced broadly.

I think I grinned like an idiot for about a week in stunned shock that it was adopted. I love this story, I really do, but it was my one and only trip down the vampire road and I have to say, it was a fun road to travel. But the process to get here has not gone without some nail biting, all in good ways of course. Letting go of my normal control freak habits and putting the manuscript into someone else’s hands has been the most terrifying experience and one I am embracing. Eternal Press has been amazing and very supportive, which only eases my mind. I love the cover and I have really enjoyed the editing process. Most of all I am throwing myself into and enjoying the marketing aspects.

And…did I mention, I have a book being released TODAY?

Vampire Erotic or Vampire Gore?

Oh boy. I totally did not just write a gory vampire story or one that is purely erotic. It’s really a heated romance with many steamy scenes peppered throughout to support the plot. The sensuality with my ‘good’ characters is spicy highlighting the love shared between those characters. They are enough to get your blood moving, I promise. But with the ‘bad’ characters, well, their moments are written in such a way they augment their demented view on the world around them. This is a highly sexual tale any vampire romance lover will enjoy. I had fun with writing each one and really cut loose with the one characters Kaen and Deandra, so you’ll have to tell me if you like it.

Now the fun part…Giving you a copy of my first book!

About Alice:
I am a normal everyday working marketing professional who is also a mother and a wife. In my spare time, I write – a lot. It helps to keep me sane and to balance the hectic demands of work and life. I also choose to write romantic fantasy because it is the farthest thing from reality that one can get, not to mention I am quite attached to elves, dragons and magic (oh my). I do take breaks .  When I am not writing, I love camping with my family (two step daughters plus husband), learning to fly fish around California, and playing with my two Boxer dogs.

I used to be terrified of the written word, but once I started with one page, then two, they quickly grew into hundreds. I realized something -- anything can be achieved if you are determined! I have written a total of nine novels, three of which are being published with Eternal Press. Talon  (April 2012) is a Erotic Paranormal and will be the first to release. This is followed by two books in the Flame Thrower Saga:  Flame Thrower (May 2012) and A Jewel of the Kingdom (TBD), both books are Romantic Fantasy.  I’ve also got one more novel (Gem) in the works and the chapters can be found on my website.

In the end, what you get is the output of my utter devotion to writing. I love each and every story for different reasons.  Each story has a purpose for why it was written. I mostly love the characters, and find I just can’t say good-bye, therefore I write another story when one ends to keep them alive.
