Dog Days of Summer: Author Brigit Aine Writes the Paranormal


Good morning! This time as part of our Dog Days of Summer BlogTour we are hosting author Brigit Aine of Ellora's Cave.

For those of you unfamiliar with Ellora's Cave, they are a publisher of romance (and have earned a good chunk of the market--quickly-- specializing in erotic romance).

I'll let Brigit introduce herself. ;-)

Hello. And thank you for visiting me today. My name is Brigit Aine. I am an erotic paranormal romance writer although I also do non-erotic paranormal romance. I am almost 37 years old, I have a husband and two sons. I live in wonderful Northern California where I can reach San Francisco or Reno/Tahoe within 2 hours.

Although Brigit is an author, like most of us she doesn't get to devote every minute to her craft but has to balance her life to succeed. She says:

I write in my “spare” time. I have a full time out of the house job that keeps me fairly busy and I write as an escape. I love to read and I write what I read.

Brigit uses a pseudonym, privacy always being a necessary concern for writers in certain genres. But she's also happy to share her writing journey and snippets of her life with readers and writers and can be contacted in a variety of ways.

You can find me on the web at http://www.brigitsworld.com , http://www.brigitsworld.blogspot.com , www.twitter.com/brigitsworld , and www.facebook.com/brigitsworld . So please stop by and visit, follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook. I love to hear from my readers and you can also e-mail me at brigitaine AT gmail DOT com (you all know the drill when it comes to email addresses--get riid of the spaces, replace the AT and DOT with the appropriate symbols).

What is the rating for your recent book?
The rating on my book(s) is above R. They are erotic paranormal.

What can you tell us about your most recent books?
I have one out and one coming out in September. They are both set in a wonderful town called Torrent. Torrent is a place where those who have unique abilities or talents of all sorts have gathered and are loved and protect each other. This includes shifters of all sorts, psychics and those with other more unique talents. In “Red’s Wolf” (out now), Red has the ability to put the emotions she is feeling into the food she is cooking. In “Cassie’s Awakening” (coming in September), Cassie has the natural ability to dampen high emotions in those around her. “Kraig’s Kat”, Book 3 of Torrent’s Talents has a natural psychic and tarot reader.
They are all full of fun and romance and passion.

What formats are your books available in? Where can we buy them?
“Red’s Wolf”
is available in e-book and print.
You can buy “Red’s Wolf” in e-book at Absolute Xpress: http://www.absolute-x-press.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=80&osCsid=9b39f486fa2798a97efbff8c2a0c81b1
Or in print at Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Reds-Wolf-Torrents-Talents-Book/dp/1894817532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248877856&sr=8-1 “Cassie’s Awakening” will be available for pre-order soon at http://www.absolute-x-press.com and will be out in September. “Kraig’s Kat” is in pre-production right now with a release date that is hopefully early next year.

I also asked Brigit what sort of publicity she's done for the release of "Red's Wolf" (I love the title, by the way--and the cover's beautiful, too). Here's what she's been busy doing--outside of regular work, family and writing--
Oh my goodness what haven’t I done? Blogs, joined 300 Yahoo groups, Facebook, twitter, sent out free copies in contests, had the local libraries pick it up, and my mom is by far my biggest supporter.

Think about that a minute. Brigit's done that much work towards getting the word out about her writing--what are you aspiring authors out there actually willing to do? ;-)

Come back tomorrow to read an excerpt of Brigit's writing and get a glimpse into the town of Torrent!

Howdy

I just joined this sweet place. Lots of individuals have contributed so many good things here. I would also like to add some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you want to know how to lose 10 lbs in a calendar week, you are likely not searching for a regular diet and work out plan. You can lose weight with a general diet and workout plan, Still this demands a lot of time doing intensive cardio exercises and following a strict diet. Here I will draft the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Keep Distance from all deep-fried foods for the week
2. Drink In an 8oz glass of grapefruit with breakfast every day. (this accelerates up your metabolism)
3. Take fair portions (stop eating when you are full)
4. Rather than eating 3 big a meals a day, take 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Do not eat anything after 9pm. Its good to eat before 9 P.M. so that our body gets proper time to burn calories before sleep.
6. Have a proper sleep everyday. Not getting enough rest has been proved to be a major element to the body putting up excess fat.
7. Utilise a body/colon cleanse for the 7 days. This will get rid of needless weight stored around the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those man's/womans who need to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic drink.
10[url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips].[/url] A low GI diet is an outstanding method of loosing fat quickly.

Thanks![url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com].[/url]!

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

She purred as he pulled out, rolling onto her side as he moved aside. His face was devoid of its former markings, the skin smooth and black and unblemished. It may mean nothing to you, but I must say that Im proud of you. They had fought about it too often for Eyrhaen not to know what he meant. Fingers digging into his hips, she pushed herself away from him. Be proud of what you just accomplished. Startled from her thoughts, she glanced up at him. But… Abruptly, she caught Eyrhaen up in a hug. She needed to do this. You need to understand that I wont stand in the way anymore. I love all three of you and probably always have. Ive taken enough for tonight. It put his nose right above hers, his bright eyes boring down into her skull. But Brevins weight kept her where she was. She closed her eyes and groaned, luxuriating under his weight. She frowned a little and squinted to get as best a look as she could. He, too, enjoys your garden. He shared in her laughter, and she gloried at how easy it was. I would cherish any child you had by any man. I cant see where Im going.

It fed her every emotion, prodding her anger and settling an icy lacing on despair. With one last pat on Erikins arm, she left them to climb the staircase alone. Why worry him? Her sinewy warrior had to pummel someone on a regular basis or he became antsy. She let herself smile, let herself fall into him with relief.
