Coming Soon: The Third and Final Sullivan Vampires Book ❤

So, I thought long and hard about what my last book for 2017 would be. In the end, it came down to this: I wanted to give a gift to my readers. ♥

You guys are with me through every step of the book process. You cheer me on, you love my stories, you make my life immeasurably brighter and better for being. ♥ ♥ ♥ I love you, and I know you know that…

But I wanted to show you, too. ♥ ♥ ♥

I started this journey as Ms. Essex with the Sullivan Vampires. I wrote the first novella during the worst depression of my life, right after I almost committed suicide. My wife had told me to write something, anything, to try to take my focus off the pain. “Write whatever makes you happy,” she told me, holding me close.

So…I did.

I wrote the story of Rose, who is completely broken–who, through love and coming into her own power, decides to keep living.

Love saves her.

The Sullivan Vampires have been my strongest loved books–and my most hated. To be perfectly frank, I’ve been going through really bad writer’s block on them because of the hate. I’m human. If I wasn’t a sensitive person with emotions, honestly my stories wouldn’t be worth reading. It’s emotion and rawness and honesty in a story that makes you love it. So the very thing that helps me write is the very thing that has kept me from finishing this series…

But I started the Sullivans because I loved them. And then *you* loved them. And, my goodness, did you love them. There is not a SINGLE DAY that goes by that someone doesn’t comment or message or email me about when the last book is coming out. You have consistently and valiantly loved these stories with your whole heart. ♥ ♥ ♥

People are going to love or hate your book…that’s the danger of being an author. And also the incredible beauty of it. I wrote these books for myself, and I wrote these books for you. And that’s what matters.

It’s easy to say that, but it’s taken so, so, so much courage to come to this place.

And to give you the greatest gift I could think of.

The story of Rose and Kane runs deep in my heart. It is the very second stitch that started to heal the wounds there, right after the first one sewn by my beautiful wife. ♥

And it is with greatest love that I tell you: thank you for reading my stories. Thank you for loving my stories and characters and thank you so, so much for reading my words.

And thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for believing in me. ♥

CHOOSING ETERNITY, the final book in the Sullivan Vampires trilogy, is set to release at the very end of this month. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ x infinity

ALPHA is out now and available to read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited!

It is with MAXIMUM DELIGHT and SHEER JOY that I tell you my latest book, ALPHA, is released today!!!!!!!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

ALPHA is the love story of Mel and Dani–two women who were in love, once upon a time. They grew up together in the tiny town of North Versailles, Pennsylvania, and while Dani loved the place with her whole heart, Mel…did not.

Oh, did I mention they’re werewolves? ♥

Mel couldn’t wait to move away from the pack, and she did the minute she turned 18. But her life is now in shambles, and she has to move back home…and come home to the pack.

But Dani’s now the Alpha, and since Mel left out of the blue one day, when they were madly in love…she has a pretty big chip on her shoulder.

This story is powerful and passionate, and I loved writing it with my whole heart. Dani and Mel’s relationships was so tempestuous and raw and so damn sexy…

Note: I think the one sex scene (YOU WILL KNOW THE ONE 😛 ) is the best I’ve ever written. 😀 ♥ ♥ ♥ And that is SAYING SOMETHING, since I think the one DARK ANGEL sex scene was always my favorite…

I just love this book so, so much, guys–I poured my heart into it, and I hope you love it as much as I do. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Is love forever?

Melanie Goodman has been running her entire life. Born a werewolf, she escaped to the other side of the country to try to run away from who she was…but it didn’t work. Her wife cheated on her, her business is in ruins, and down on her luck and destitute, Mel has no other choice but to return home…and to the pack.

Enter Dani Ingram, the woman Mel never thought she’d face again…the leader of the pack. They fell in love, once upon a time, but Mel left. Now, Dani’s different from when Mel last saw her…she’s sexy as all hell, but has a chip on her shoulder. When Mel sees Dani after all this time, there are sparks hot enough to start an inferno…but an inferno is often too powerful to control.

What follows next is a fiery, passionate story of love, lust and embracing who you really are.

$7.99 or available to read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

Transgender Day of Remembrance ❤ ❤ ❤

On this Transgender Day of Remembrance, I not only honor and remember our trans family members in our big rainbow family who have died due to violence and discrimination committed against trans folk…I reaffirm, passionately and with my deepest conviction, to fight like hell for the living. &heart;

A reminder that this is a trans safe space, and *any* space that is mine is a trans safe space. That I am a passionate advocate of trans rights. That I have a zero tolerance policy of slurs or hatred directed against trans folks.

A reminder, to my trans loved ones and fans, that you are seen and heard and I love you with my whole heart. I will fight for you, always. If you are ever unsafe, I will protect you. If you are ever hurting, I will help you in any way that it is in my power. You are a loved and vital and cherished part of my rainbow family. I love you. &heart;

I light a candle tonight for every trans folk who has left this beautiful, hard world because of hatred. And I light a candle tonight for memory and honor, but also for love.

I read from A Knight to Remember! ❤

I always do readings from books that have just come out, but my older books don’t have readings that are searchable, and some books I didn’t even do readings for!

SO, I had the SUPER EXCITING IDEA to do readings from all of my older books, as time permits.  ❤  ❤  ❤  ❤ I was SO EXCITED ABOUT THE IDEA, IN FACT, that I wanted to film one today.  ❤  ❤  ❤

So, of course, I chose A Knight to Remember.  ❤  ❤  ❤  ❤

This is a reading of the third chapter of the book, when we first meet Virago, because it’s honestly one of my favorite parts.  ❤  ❤  ❤ Bonus Emily being EXTRA ADORABLE and cuddly.  ❤  ❤  ❤
