For today's Tuesday Teaser, I thought I would feature a book that showcases an obsession of mine - gargoyles. Yes, you heard right, gargoyles. Those gruesome stone creatures that sit on top of gothic cathedrals and castles. Why do I find them so sexy, you ask? For that, I blame Danielle Monsch. After reading her Stone Guardian, I became completely obsessed with them and started reading every gargoyle book I could get my hands on. Some are better than others. I'm rather excited about this one. And oh goody! Reading the blurb of this one tells me she has more gargoyle books, plus, she's working on book two of this series too!! Glom! Glom! Glom!

cursed stone Beast
Isolated and alone,
without family or fortune, Roman Nosuntres is a gargoyle forgotten by
the world. He just wants to get back what once was lost and his only
hope of breaking the curse that binds him lies in the unconditional
surrender of an innocent. He just never anticipated someone like Daisy,
who slowly brings color into his black and white world.
innocent & beguiling Beauty
Born into a life of love
and privilege, surrounded by friends and family, Daisy Tremain doesn’t
quite fit in. She’s a wolf who can’t shift and a Siren afraid to sing.
Not broken or damaged, just a little lost, Daisy’s life finally starts
to make sense when she meets the mysterious Roman. Imperfect apart,
they are perfect together.
As long as they don't
piss off too many gods.
STONE SOLITUDE is a full
length novel at 107+K words. It can be read as a standalone and there
is no cliffhanger but if you're interested in other gargoyles, there is
the Stone Passions Trilogy (Stone Lover, Stone Romance, & Stone
Destiny.) Siren Song is the story of Daisy's parents. Not recommended
for anyone younger than 18 due to sexual situations and strong
About the author
Like most writers, I spend most of my time telling myself stories and
occasionally writing them down when they get too loud to remain in my
head. The characters are also very demanding, wanting to go out into
the world to be discovered by millions of adoring readers, though they
are most satisfied with having only a few readers that truly love them.
From the gargoyles that sit on top of the roofs to the Siren who lures
her wolf astray to the Aradians and Apocritae to those who battle evil,
the characters are everything.
Instead of going through the traditional gatekeepers of the publishing
world I have leapt over the walls with the help of digital catapults
(starting with kindle direct and createspace) and messenger e-birds
(goodreads, facebook, twitter, RNC, etc), going directly to the public.
It has been a year and while my strong hold is small it grows larger
every day as I connect with other rebels throughout the lands and the
readers who support our work. It is a glorious day to be a writer.
When it comes to the actual writing I have discovered that every single
one of my books likes to be created in a different way, which makes
establishing an environment that is most conducive to my writing is not
likely, though it occasionally involves chocolate covered raisins,
music, minesweeper, occasionally Mahjong, lots of solitaire, notebooks
and scraps of paper, doodling and day dreaming, and fruity, sugar-free
bubble gum, not necessarily in that order and not always at the same
Of course, none of this would be possible without the love and support
of my very loving and very tolerant family: my husband who encourages
me to keep writing even when I act a little insane in regards to the
worlds in my head, and my three kids who help out so much when I get
lost in those same, darn worlds. They politely listen as I go on and on
about my characters' motivations and back stories, their connections
within the worlds created and how they fight to gain control of their
destinies. But I am a cruel writer and make them earn their happy
Since I am also a Romantic at heart, they are all happy endings.
