Blurb for the Anthology

Monsters deserve love too…

From werewolves, vampires, and even Bigfoot, these beasts manage to find love. Whether they are able to sink their claws into that love and keep it is another story. When it comes down to it, don’t judge a book by its cover. This anthology brings a mixture of what ifs and happily ever afters.

Graphic sexual content is included within this anthology.

Blurb for The Beasts of Hank's Wood

Joe Schola III is the eighteen-year-old son of Joseph Schola Junior, a fire-and-brimstone preaching Fundamentalist televangelist. While young Joe is far less homophobic than his father, he is struggling to come to terms with his own sexual orientation. Will Joe dare accept the invitation to become part of a clan of shapeshifters, and will he accept the love being offered to him by the handsome fox shifter Lovell Azarola?

Read the previous snippet here:

“You might never make MVP, Joey, but you’re a good solid player,” Dad declared, patting my shoulder. “You were the most dependable Behemoth for three years in a row.”

“My son the Dependable Behemoth,” I mused, feeling happy as Dad leaned against me, grinning. I loved being with him when he was like this.

Dad and I were a study in contrasts. He stood just five feet six inches tall, a portly middle-aged WASP with a bit of a pot belly.

The Quest for the Wizard's Key: Strange Visitors #8Sunday #SnipSun

 

Genre: Sci-Fi Fantasy

Length: 60,000 Words

Heat Level: 1 Flame (light romance)

Blurb

The Quest for the Wizard's Key is the second book in a series of New Cthulhu Mythos tales. This fix-up novel features a fascinating cast of outcasts joining in a quest to save the Cosmos from destruction by malevolent forces. Join them on their madcap journey.

Are you tired of the same old formulaic romance dance?

Are you sick of slap-dash slashers and predictable plot point rehashers?

Are you at the end of your rope with sparkly vampires and sexy werewolves?

Have you had it up to here with silly space operas where the otherworldly setting is just a veneer for the randy crew to make out with aliens?

Is it time to drop the buddy cops and stop watching the detectives for a while?

My friend, let the New Weird Tales refresh you!

You’ve tried the rest, now it’s time for the best. Welcome to an adventure like no other!

Snippet

Read last week's snippet here:

http://www.naughtynetherworldpress.com/2022/12/the-quest-for-silver-key-meeting-king.html

“Why do they suppose that I would have this key?” King Rokon inquired.

“They do not believe that you have the key, Sire,” the guard clarified. “The Yithian brought them to this dimension in order to escape some sort of malevolent entity.”

“So, these are Yithians?”

“The one that led them through the gate from Lake Hali is a Yithian, my king.”

“Of what variety are these other visitors?”

“One is a human spirit and the other two are former humans transformed into ghouls.”

Notes

This fix-up novel follows the events that transpired in Ketil and Yitzy’s Adventures in the Xura Dream House. The book can be read as a standalone, but for a better understanding of the characters and events, it is suggested that Ketil and Yitzy’s Adventure in the Xura Dream House should be read first. It is a fun, fast-paced buddy story. Grab your copy here!

Once you have read Ketil and Yitzy’s Adventure, you will be In the Know so you can be In with the In Crowd! Then you can join us at the Kewl Eldritch Horrors table.

I am currently doing final edits and managing the book's details on Amazon. A pre-order link should be available soon.

When I was a senior in high school, my televangelist father provided me with a list of ten colleges he recommended. I selected Elk Grove Christian College for Men, located in Parsard, a bedroom community of Billings. Mountain Ridge Christian Women’s College was located in nearby Coboia. I knew I wanted to be involved in athletics, and EGCC had a thriving sports program. I initially considered joining the rugby team, but Dad wanted me to play football. My height and weight were just right for a quarterback at six feet one and 225 pounds.

“Revered Leader, we have visitors from the Third Dimension.”

The speaker was a great snake with flexible, boneless arms. He held a trident in one hand. His golden scales glittered under the red sun that baked the desert world of Zandanua.

“Indeed,” mused the mighty emerald-scaled anthropomorphic snake king seated on the colossal throne of red stone in the grand hall of Ajnevan Palace. “Were they sent by my brother, Yig?”

“They are renegades, Mighty One,” the guard explained. “They are searching for a key to assist in solving a quest given them by Nyarlathotep.”

I had a million questions, some of them not suitable for polite company. I’d not only pictured myself turning into a werewolf, but I’d also read and masturbated to gay shifter erotica, including the most graphic of graphic novels. Was it acceptable for a wolf shifter to mate with a fox shifter? While some lore says yes, other tales say no. Either way, I suppose it only mattered to Lovell and me.

I shuddered as Lovell nudged my hand with his cold nose.

Notes

In the past, some folks have complained about the brevity of my snippets. In this case, I am under a contractual obligation not to share more than 500 words from the anthology until it has been published on February 23, 2023. 

As a secondary consideration, I like to share snippets from stories featuring lesbian, gay, or bisexual characters with the Rainbow Snippets blog hop. This group likes six-sentence snippets: one sentence for each color of the rainbow.

Also, since many of my works are novelettes or shorter, I prefer brief snippets. I don't want to give away the entire book within the space of a month!

The girl appeared to float just above the ground as she crossed the lawn. Her rose-colored lips bowed in a reserved smile. As she drew closer, Valentins noticed her unusual eyes. At first, he supposed that the rufous shade was a trick of the
light, but the color remained constant when the battery-operated lantern shone directly on the girl's face.

Candi knew hot things happened behind closed doors at the Pearl Beach Resort. After all, the place was owned by bisexual billionaire playboy Boris van Donk, who had a reputation for taking on all comers. 

Candi's family of origin was strictly religious, and she has never given or received more than a chaste kiss in her 21 years. Between bad-boy Boris and her geeky, fun-loving, porn-writing housemates, an awakening of her desires is inevitable.

“He’s so full of shit. Do you remember the last time he got laid, Candi?”

“How could she remember if she wasn’t there, Lulu Panda?”

Luisa and Parsifal were both children of military families. Luisa’s family was Latino, but her father was stationed in Italy when she was born. Parsifal jokingly called her the Hoe of Venice, to which Luisa responded, “it’s the Venetian Dreamboat, my Tennessee lamb,” in a Latin-tinged Southern accent while blowing the provocateur a kiss; the Tennessee lamb nickname both addressed Parsifal’s Southern roots and compared him to the lady of loose virtue in a humorous song by the band Little Feat.

Parsifal observed the fabled Dirty Dutchman through binoculars as van Donk and Valentyn Smolarek, a tall, slender, dark-haired, twenty-five-year-old Ukrainian man with striking navy-blue eyes, canoodled shamelessly on the deck of The Curious Elegance. The mature swain stroked his fingers over the younger man’s angular cheek and down his slender neck as he parted his conquest’s lips with his tongue.

“Oh, my stars, Girls, I swear the Amsterdam Hot Daddy might just be fixin’ to fuck the Ukrainian Stud Muffin right there on the deck of the Good Ship Lick My Lollipop,” Parsifal reported, his Tennessee accent lilting with excitement.

“Well, don’t keep it to yourself, Pendejo,” Luisa admonished. “Spill the frijoles!”

“I’m not even kidding, Louie. The old Silver Fox just squeezed a big ole dollop of suntan oil onto his hand and is rubbing it all over our boy Valentino’s gorgeous chest and abs. What I wouldn’t give to have my hands where his are!

WTF Blogger?

 


Just in case you were under the mistaken impression that Blogger had stopped being stupid, allow me to correct you. Blogger just went through and decided that an old story-planning blog I hadn't even posted to in several years violates community standards. I wasn't even my usual profane self in any of the posts on this blog. I'm now going through and setting any blogs I'm not currently actively using to private to avoid having this same nonsense happen to any of them.

Genre: Paranormal, Supernatural, Vampires

Blurb
A young man makes a new friend who is much older than she appears to be.

Snippet
Deborah Virgo and Valentins Hines met on the first day of summer 2017. The youngsters lived at the wrong end of Fox Avenue. The electricity had been turned off in Valentins's house, but he didn't mind sitting on the covered porch painting figurines. His mother, Doriend Hines, was gone most of the time, working at the Daily Grind Bistro or The Zealous Whistle Tavern or staying overnight with old folks who paid her under the table for her caregiving services. Doriend was a workaholic who would have been thriving monetarily if not for being a functional alcoholic and opioid addict with a love of gambling. 

Valentins was sitting on the porch at dusk, painting a vampire figurine for his haunted house, when a wraithlike girl with an alabaster complexion and waves of xanthic hair flowing to her mid-back entered the gate.
