Author Guest Blog: Eri Nelson

Hi, my name is Eri Nelson or as I rather like to call myself an Ohioan Hermit (lol) and author of Dearhart Clan Series. Life is pretty simple for me. I like being home where my family is. This family also includes are far too many pets. Although I try to put limits on our personal zoo we are hard to pass off a stray.

I have always enjoyed writing but never feeling that the patience was within me to write a book. So on a whim I wrote my first book of forty thousand words in the fall of 2010. Quickly following that up with a sequel in hopes to make a series of it. However these were not the series I chose to put out for readers?.. That is, not until this December where I will be releasing Vol.2 in the Dearhart Clan Series “Double Call From Desire”.

Loving challenges as I do, the call out for a paranormal romance caught my eye. So in my haste I threw out a fifteen thousand word book in hope that it could find its way into becoming an E-Book. But alas this was turned down. However, like myself I did not write a series that was solely a romance. More what I think of as primal fantasies. Course I did not let the denial of what was not classed as their type of romance stop me. With the story still raging in my head my fingers typed off another round, making my one into two books. This one verging on a little over twenty-four thousand words. Well as it usually does in my case, the story line would not leave my head so now I am working on book three in the Dearhart Clan Series.

What is the Dearhart Clan Series? They are a collection of short face paced E-books that outside of this first release will stay as E-books until the series is complete. With my first in these line of books we are introduced to Owen and Kristen. They are two of the many faces we will be introduced to as we dive deeper into the world of heated lust that is urged on with fear of extinction. Owen, our alpha leader of the Dearhart Clan, is pushed by duty and misguided loyalities. He never saw life beyond what he has become. That is until a unchanced meeting with Kristen, a meger waitress hooked on desires. Kristen finds that turning away from Owen is impossible and possibly dangerous for her own well being. The two are forced to forge bonds that to most will be seen as primal and out of control. However to those of us who have known urgency and the need of release it will be a ride in which we will hope that will never end.

Now I must say that it was not just my love of writing that pushed me into looking for alternate publishing paths for “The Call From Within”. No that honor goes to my husband, Jeff Nelson. He truly has been my most honest critic. It was not easy at first for me to concede to his thoughts. In fact it was every curse word I could think of stating how wrong his views were (lol). Nevertheless we came to a few resolutions and became a team in the editing process (so any errors in my books we blame him, ok?.lol?just joking ?wink wink).

You will never hear me claim to be this glorious fantastic writer. For I am just pleased when another simply enjoys the read. It truly amazes me when someone likes my writing style. I hope with all my heart, you dear reader will be one of those who do.

If you would love to follow me further and trust me when I say that would be a huge honor! You can find me at http://www.dearharts.com where all my various avenues of social networking are available.

My dearest thanks to our host Lisa”s World of Books. It is a great privilege to be here and be able to have this opportunity.

Eri Nelson 

Dearhart Clan is a series of fast paced books that dabble in the world of paranormal and remain in the erotic pulse of what can only be classified as a primal fantasy.  If it’s a typical romance you’re looking for you won’t find it in this series.   

 

Eri Nelson writes in a darker world where heat and need are the forefront for a slipping existence.  There is not time for all the tenderness love deserves but if you’re imprinted to another you are far beyond those mortal requirements.

 

Our author is driven by swift action packed intrigues that often leave you wanting more.  As she writes each new book into the series the number of pages might increase but the action never lets you feel the increasing distance to the final page.

 

The Call From Within is Eri Nelson’s first look into this series.  It is here that we meet Owen our Pack’s clan leader.  He has been driven by what is expected of an alpha.  Facts that were told through the decades all but look like fiction to him now.  So he never dared to believe in fate and only let duty push him forth.  Although now his resolves make no sense and it took little to no time at all in showing him through the lust he feels for another.

 

Kristen Still bares the imprinted mark to our handsome alpha.  However he wasn’t the first to notice what she was and it’s that bedding of prior passions that control her new weakness.  Yes, Owen is pushed by jealousy to possess what his four footed insight tells him is his.

 

A former distraction wanted more than heated moments with Kristen.  In her he saw a stronger life force for his young and if Brinston Drake must he would take what he needs from her.  He just did not foresee another finding her as well.

 

While the rest of Eri Nelson’s cast of characters find their selves caught up in furthering personal existences. Another by the name of Wash seeks to use their distractions as his gain.  A rogue sent to track and update, Wash is tested by his hatred and desire for revenge.  He’ll have it but not as quickly as he would like.  But soon enough Owen will slip farther into his madness over a bitch in heat.  Then Wash perhaps can use the heated vixen to distract both her and the alpha into their future demise.

 

Available on Amazon in print and for the Kindle

Teaser Excerpt: To sink his teeth in that ivory clad hide and nibble on her most womanly parts. Her moistened heat to be lavished under the weight of his tongue. She smelled and looked better for breakfast than any food the diner had to offer. He knew nothing about her outside the fact that she was his and he had to have her.”

Guest Post with Laurie Bowler

Death Bite and Hacked Up

 

Let me introduce myself, I’m Laurie Bowler a fantasy and horror author from the United Kingdom. I just wanted to drop by and tell you a little about my new horror stories that are available.

My paranormal fantasy stories are Moon Rising series, Depths of Darkness and Serena Embracing Darkness to name a few, there is definitely no stopping me from creating as many books as I can. So far, I have written, edited and published 31. In addition, I have another 6 that are waiting to be edited, additionally I am currently creating Blood Fusions, Death Bite 2, Vampire Hunter, Skelthra and Sliced or Diced: A Real Slasher.

Writing for me is so much fun, it certainly wasn’t in my plans to become a writer, I literally woke up one day and decided to write a book that I called Vanquished and then I had it published. Since then I have not stopped and I am enjoying the creation of different worlds, creatures (some of my books have creatures written that have never been created until before) and of course the characters.

 

Death Bite is my new horror story, and is incredibly graphic in the details of the storyline, and I have had immense fun writing these.

With Death Bite, I had an idea that writing something with Zombies as the featuring storyline would be a bit like an icebreaker to start my writing getting into the right direction in the horror scene, and so it began. I will admit at first I thought I was going to puke, I put that much detail I gave myself nightmares and my stomach turned over with every chapter that I wrote.

Normally I only write paranormal stories but I felt like having a change, I will be publishing plenty of new paranormal stories in the next few weeks but I need to get over my newly acquired horror bug first.

Here is the synopsis:

Jessica Hargreaves knows a thing or two about being a strong woman. But as a deadly epidemic sweeps across the world, she is put to the test as the flesh eaters rise from the dead and begin to consume the living flesh of the people they encounter. Can Jessica and her small band of survivors escape the evil that is rising across the land or will she be consumed by the unholy hunger of the damned?

This blog rocks!! Thank you so much for posting this.

 

Hacked Up, this was a sudden idea and I sat down one night and decided to start writing this little number. It has turned out, in my opinion anyway, to be much better than I had originally anticipated. However, you people can let me know your thoughts!

The storyline itself sprang up from almost nowhere, and the flow just came to me, it was a consistent flow and I certainly enjoyed it. I also gave myself nightmares writing this one too, but I cannot seem to stop writing in the horror genre now that I have started!

The main character Allie leaves her small town due to being harassed by an unknown source and she is seeking peace. She moves to a countryside small house, and this is where the fun begins.

For years rumours have circulated about the house opposite hers, some say it is haunted, others say an old man inhabits inside, while others warn against going near the property due to the screams of terror and the pungent smell from outside! You will have to read the story to find out what happens to Allie!

I would say this story is definitely the most fun, and the most gory to read and for me to write.

 

I really hope you will like them. Here are the links:
