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.

Featuring stories from T.C. Mill, A.K. Moss, Toni Mobley, Barend Nieuwstraten III, Ashley L. Hunt, Charles Kyffhausen, Lil Deville, Kelly Piner, Jess Monica, and Karen Bayly.

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:

“Joey! You’re going to have to rein in that woolgathering, Son! You’re in college now!”

“I’m sorry, Dad. What were you saying?’

“I said we ought to meet with the football coaches. Let ‘em know a little bit about you before practice starts. Give you a leg up on the other froshers.”

“Maybe we ought to put my stuff in the dorm first. I’d like to meet my roommate in person.”

“Your roommate will be here all semester.”

“So will the football team,” I protested, but it was no use. He grabbed my arm and dragged me away to meet the Fighting Elks coaches.

  1. Controlling dad - he has a rough journey ahead of him!

  2. What a take charge dad. Hope all goes well for the son.

  3. The father is a bit pushy. Hope the son survives

  4. Sounds like dad is more excited about the team than Joey is. Tweeted.

  5. I hope the antho is bringing some new readers to your sites, Cie.

  6. Seems a fair assessment between father and son. Guess father has an shock coming. Thanks for sharing.
