Denyse Bridger has done it again with her Quickie from the New Dawning International Book Fair, Hunter's Game. I read this and I had to read it a few more times and it is more than just a bodice ripper-the woman didn't have time to have a bodice on to rip! Just what is a Quickie? A Quickie is like a short story-a bit shorter than a novella that are becoming wildly popular with Kindle, Nook, and other E-Reader devices. Quickie's are ideal for those who want a quick read. Hunter's Game for those who love romance especially paranormal romance will fall in love with this Quickie.
IN HER OWN WORDS
My first major fantasy novel is AS FATE DECREES. (Available in bookstores everywhere, and on Amazon.com.) The novel relies heavily on Greek Mythology, and is set in Ancient Greece and modern Athens. If you enjoy a tale of Gods, Destiny, and the battles of an Eternal Champion, this is the book for you! Not surprisingly, there’s a touch of romance throughout, of course! “It’s what I do best, after all!” The next fantasy novel, already in the works, is about pirates, parallel worlds, and sorcery.
At this point in my career, I’ve had published in the vicinity of 500 stories and novellas, in almost any genre you can name. “The only thing I haven’t tried yet is hard-core science fiction, and horror. Since I don’t consider vampires as I write them to be the fodder of horror, I classify those stories as Dark Fantasy.” Many of my vampire stories have appeared in Margaret L. Carter’s anthology, The Vampire’s Crypt, and Night To Dawn, published and edited by Dawn Callahan for the first two years, and now published by author/editor Barbara A. Custer.
My poetry has been published internationally, as well. I’ve also been the recipient of numerous awards, most notably the Fan Quality Award, which is given annually for excellence in fan-written fictions based on film and television. As of May 2005, there are four awards in the collection, and no less than a dozen nominations to my credit. I’ve had one of my books end up being a finalist for book of the year in 2008, and been a finalist for the Aurora Award six months after As Fate Decrees was released. I’ve lost track of the 5 star reviews, but I am always grateful for each and every one of the amazing endorsements given to my work. Readers are everything, because they are the real reason any author is successful.
In 2006, I formed a partnership with actor/producer/singer Branscombe Richmond to create and write a serial that is best described as a modern day western. (Think motorcycles in place of horses!) Installments of the book appeared on the American Motorcycle Company website, the first in April 2006. Since then, I have gathered all the segments together and they will be released as a novella in future, with a conclusion to the story of our Rebel Knight. The first half of the tale is again available from XoXo Publishing™ in eBook format.
Simply The Best was the title of my first full-length erotic romance novel, and was my debut title with Liquid Silver Books. Upcoming projects are diverse and many, with a possible sequel to As Fate Decrees in the future. In the erotic romance genre there is also lots to explore, including the Victorian mystery series set in and around the infamous Ripper murders; and soon a set of tales that take place at a Venetian Masquerade Ball; as well as many other stories set in a variety of genres.
I am presently at work on several very exciting projects, many of which are inspired by the wonderful romantic love songs of Italy, and the wonderful men who have brought this music back to today's audience. I am working on a new vampire/fantasy novel that has involved a lot of world building and will be very detailed and possible series if all goes well. There is also a new vampire novel with an ancient Sicilian Prince as my hero.
I've been lucky enough to add Ellora's Cave and New Dawning International Book Fair to my list of publishers this year, and I hope to have many future releases with these two great companies. My first books with them have been well accepted and very successful, so a huge thanks to readers for that!
