AT WAR IN THE WILLOWS TRILOGY by Kiki Howell
An Amazon Top 100 Bestseller in Vampire Thrillers!
In Book 1, Amberlyn’s vampire brother, Isaac, always one to kick ass first and deal with the consequences later, kidnaps a witch, Winter. He intends to find out what type of retaliation the witch clan is planning against the vampires and werewolves. In doing so, he finds so much more then he bargained for.
By Book 2, Isaac and Winter devise a plan to try to get the Elders of the clans talking peacefully. But, things don’t go as they’d hoped, and the fighting between the clans becomes more devious – deadly. Now, Devin, another vampire of Drake’s making, steps in to help pick up some of the pieces.
When Book 3 begins, it is Devin who hides the biggest secret; he’s in love with a local human. In a moment of desperation – of love – Devin sweeps this human, Sara, away to his home in order to keep her out of harm’s way.

MYSTICAL MAYHEM by Kiki Howell
When rogue shifters capture Aiyanna, a Native American Indian with a dragon spirit, she finds herself tied to the wall of a cave, about to be the sacrifice in their twisted sex ritual. Their intention is to conceive another chimera, the legendary paranormal superman of Alaska. What the group didn’t plan for, is the real chimera, Xander, coming to their sacrifice’s rescue.
Once in his cave, as Xander cares for Aiyanna’s wounds and shares a little of his rough life, the two find they are life mates. The next step in their lives should be clear. Instead, in this world gone mad, where paranormal creatures, which once lived secretly on the fringes of society, are currently joining together for evil purposes, indecision reigns.

Haunting My Dollhouse Giveaway

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I have been considering, for several years now, making the dollhouse that my father built me when I was a little girl haunted. Yesterday, my mom came over, and we finally haunted the dollhouse, or at least made a good start, as there are lots of things that I would still like to add. But for now, below are a few pictures of the macabre editions. I didn't pick a story theme like some suggest, but I did let my mind go to the dark side. Although some thoughts we just laughed at rather than executing. My mom did all the great painting, since I a terrible at it, and we made out of clay things like the pumpkins, drippy candles, cauldron, etc. 

My father said that when he made this dollhouse for me all of those years ago he wouldn't have dreamed that I would still be playing with it in my forties. But then, he probably didn't imagine I would be a paranormal author of often dark and erotic stories either who has an almost obsession with the color black, witches, skulls along most things paranormal and horror.



Here is a before shot.

And, the after. Wish you could see better the amazing pumpkin patch we made on the bottom corner. All hand-carved pumpkins and a gazing ball. The house looks hauntingly amazing when we turn battery-operated flickering, orange flamed, tea lights hidden inside under those ripped up curtains.

The inside before. As you can see, built in the 70's, time had already begun to haunt it for me, with sun damage to some wallpaper, and dust I couldn't seem to get off the floor. 

 Here is the haunted inside. For some reason, even with a flash, some rooms are dark now that they are all painted and distressed. Or maybe the spirits were messing with the camera for effect lol

A close up of the living room. More witchy and old than haunted, but I love it! Maybe the witch and her daughter are trying to resurrect the dead. You will see what I mean in the next image. Of course, there would be no help for the skeleton resting in the master bed.

Suppose the dead dad in the bathroom is responsible for the haunting. Odd though, the spirit image in the mirror looks sinister in real life, but took on a silly smile for the camera. Only a little creepy. I can't think about the giant spider my mom put in the toilet or I just may have nightmares. I have a better chance handling a ghost than a spider in real life. Not kidding there. Love the effect my mom did on the walls in there. She dipped a sponge in paint-colored water and let the thin wet paint run down the walls. Some ended up running under the wall into the nursery, but so is the way of damaging stuff for effect. 

 Well, then, that's all for the house. For now...

Happy October!

Now, strange things are happening to her body. And the mysterious, sexy man who always seems to be watching has her wondering if her aunt’s wild tales could be true.

A battle for her heart

Changeling's Revenge by DJ Shaw
Peyton Milne had grown up feeling like she was different from everyone else. She’d always been able to do things, sense things, others couldn’t. When she turned twenty, her mother told her something every person fears; she wasn’t a Milne and never had been. She wasn’t even human. She was Fae; a Changeling – the only good news, a unique type since she’d survived to adulthood.Now Peyton is on a mission to find her Fae family and find out why she was left out in the human world to die. And for that she was going to need some help. Enter Basil, a shifter with a chip on his shoulder and banishment under his belt.With this kind of fire-power backing her, she hoped her family had a really good answer to her question.
Peyton stood and positioned herself between the two men when she saw Basil tense like he was getting ready to pounce on their visitor, “Excuse me, gentlemen. Remember me?”
The men looked at her, making her feel overexposed, “Yeah, hi. While I’m sure you boys would like nothing better than to beat the shit out of each other, Basil here and I were just leaving so that we could discuss some important, and rather delicate, business in private. Besides that, I happen to like this establishment and would prefer not to frighten the owners and patrons. How about we take this outside?”
