Finding time for writing has been difficult these days, as I’m packing and preparing to move (and still looking for a new place too– yikes). But I did manage this quick collaboration with Peter Wyn Mosey. What do you think?

Moving

Moving, always moving, from place to place.

Accumulating more but never keeping it,

never keeping anything of value.

She kept looking for something,

something true,

something worth staying for.

Something she would never find.

Moving to escape the lonely places,

but they always followed.

Cover Reveal: Get Set…

Tooth & Claw cover reveal part 2 Aspasia S. Bissas
All will be revealed on Saturday…

They left the other vampires with the humans. Mara wanted to call out, to tell them to get away. But she stared at Omar and Wallace grinning at their prey and her voice fled. There was no help for them. There was no help for any of them.

Mara, Dominic, and their vampire associates arrive in Marseille, France in 1909, only to find another predator already on the loose. My new FREE short story is set in the Love Lies Bleeding universe and was inspired by real events.

Come back Saturday for the title and cover reveals, and to pre-order this new FREE story!

(PS: In the meantime, don’t forget to download my other FREE short story Blood Magic, and while you’re at it, pick up Love Lies Bleeding too, available in paperback or e-book.)

Cheers,

Guest Post: Disrespecting the Gods

New guest post I wrote on Druid Life. Take a look…

I blame Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson & the Olympians) and Neil Gaiman (American Gods).
