Holiday Blessings By Louisa Bacio
What a year it’s been for me! After releasing my first book in June 2010, I’ve published three more erotic novels, The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Threesome; Sex University: All-Girls Academy; and The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: Chains of Silver.
That’s a lot of good cheer (and hopefully steamy reading)!
This week brings out my very first Christmas-themed novella, the m/m erotic paranormal The Vampire & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Christmas. While I’ve visited New Orleans, I haven’t had the pleasure of celebrating the holidays there. YouTube has become a favorite for researching and getting personal accounts of local events. One video of Christmas in the Oaks stood out.
Here’s a look-see:
Don’t you love those holiday-themed ’gators?
Somewhere, somebody is probably wondering what my favorite book has been so far, and that’s such a tough question to answer. Many point to their most current release. In book 1, The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Threesome, readers are first introduced to my paranormal threesome of Lawrence, Lily and Trevor. Book 2 The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: Chains of Silver continues with the original trio, and also introduces Silver Ashe, Trevor’s sister who was adopted at birth.
By far, Silver stands out as a character. There’s a lot at stake in Chains of Silver, and that’s an intentional play on word in relation to Silver’s love interest, Nick. Nick happens to be a vampire hunter. Can you imagine what happens when these two sides get together? It’s kind of like feuding at the holidays!
Finally, coming this week via Ravenous Romance is the prequel: The Vampire & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Christmas. The events take place about five years before the first book. The timing of A New Orleans Christmas was challenging because it takes place about a year after Hurricane Katrina. It’s a lot to work into a novella.
Here’s a little teaser:
Vampires and werewolves don’t mix … or do they?
Before there were three, there were two. When a vampire swoops in to save Trevor from a rogue gang’s blood sport, the werewolf must fight his own inhibitions. The magic of New Orleans and the holiday season bring together these two unlikely lovers.
It’s definitely been a full, but rewarding year. I’d like to thank all the readers who picked up my books, and all of my writer-friends for their support and encouragement. May your holidays be filled with much love and pleasure!
