Into The Pride (Evernight Publishing) -- Celebrating Release Day

One of my writing goals came true to write and publish urban fantasy. From the first time that I read Anne Rice's Interview With A Vampire and all her books, thereafter, Chelsea Quinn Yarbo, L.A. Banks and so many other notable fantasy/paranormal authors, I have felt drawn to this subgenre of romance with a bit of magic and intrigue.

Today, Feb 20, my short story -- Into The Pride (Evernight Publishing) has hit the e-shelf. This gem of an idea started as a anthology submission call. A quick flash of a story that would feature an alpha shifter. At the same time, I was watching a documentary on a lion pride. There was my A-ha moment. I wanted to write about the dynasty of the Nuuba shifters. In a matter of weeks, I wrote about David and Starr.

"David Chastain has one mission—to avenge the death of the royal Nuuba Pride, a dynasty of lion shifters. Enemies abound in all forms. Could Starr, the sultry warrior-priestess who abruptly interrupts his life for a quest, be his mate for life or his downfall for eternity? The adventure promises to be a wicked, steamy erotic ride to the end and beyond."

I'm absolutely thrilled to be welcomed into the Evernight Publishing family. Join me as I participate in a host of promotional events to introduce myself to you and to share the behind the scenes as a writer. Here's my latest blog: Love Around The World With Michelle Monkou

Purchasing the book is easy as pie. You can purchase directly from Evernight Publishing (right now there is a discount), or Kindle or Nook (they are little slow on the link, so I'll update as soon as available), All Romance EBooks.

Happy Reading and let me know what you think. Yes...go with a series?
