Hello from Paris!

I'm really thrilled to be part of Shapeshifter Seductions! I'm new to the paranormal world, shapeshifters included. Several years ago I had an idea for a shapeshifter novel and I've always loved the big cats so I knew that's where I was headed.

My first jaguar shifter novel, tentatively titled "Blood on the Moon" is a finalist in Passionate Ink's, Stroke of Midnight contest and I couldn't be more thrilled! Passionate Ink is an Erotica Chapter of Romance Writers of America. If RWA is the voice of romance then Passionate Ink is the voice of erotica. They give erotica authors a place to celebrate.

On a personal note, after years having family members shake their heads over my little "hobby" I finally got to tell my mom that I my erotic novella was being published by Ellora's Cave. Something must have gotten lost in the translation because my brother called the next day and his first words were, "What the hell are you writing that I can't read!"

I then explained, very patiently that Ellora's Cave was publishing me electronically. He thought it was cool and asked when he could buy it! My hubby and sons have always been very supportive. In fact, they tell everyone what I do!

Although I'm not new to writing; I've been with RWA for thirteen years, I am new to being published. My first contemporary novella, "No Holds Barred" was published this past February by EC and was the culmination of a life-long dream. This one doesn't have shifters but don't hold that against it!

Hopefully I'll have an update on my shifter novel, soon. very soon.

Happy writing,

Paris, congrats on being a finalist!

Also, why don't you share a blurb and excerpt in a future post from NO HOLDS BARRED... heck, something on the male anatomy shape-shifts, doesn't it?

Serena Shay said...

Ooh, good idea Savanna!! Erhm...Sunday snip-it Paris??

Savanna and Serena, thank you, and thanks for inviting me to share the blurb and excerpt., yes, something on the male anatomy does shift! I'll post a blurb and excerpt on Sunday.
