Let's welcome Author E.I Jennings to the blog.
She has some great info to share with you all!
Let’s start with my bio:
I live in Derbyshire in the UK with my husband and two black cats. I have always had a keen interest in writing and a vivid imagination. At the age of 16 I wrote my first romance short story as a hobby and never thought about publishing. After a few jobs I re-evaluated my life and have become an author full time specialising in Paranormal Romance Erotica with the support of friends and family. I am an Indie author and published my first novel Rising Dawn in April 2013 which was quickly followed by the novella Burning Desire: Juliet's Story. I am currently working on the next instalment in the Jessica Dawn Series and am hoping to release Darkest Dawn September 2013. They are testament that through hard work, imagination and a little help from friends anything is possible and dreams can happen.
My first novel Rising Dawn was published 15th April 2013 and follows Jess (a Pureblood vampire and written from her perspective) and Reuban (a wolf shifter). It is Paranormal Erotica so for adult reader only 18+
Jessica Dawn has felt alone all her life and a personal tragedy has set her on a path of revenge and self-destruction. Always searching and longing for the family she lost has meant that she has spent the last two years hiding and fighting in the shadows. One night her life would change again, thrown into a world she never knew existed she will find horrors, hope, friendship, love and a strength she did not think she had. She is a Pureblood; the only known Vampire Pureblood in existence and she has been protected all her life by a secret organisation called the Council. Reuban is an Alpha, a Wolf that has sworn his life to this women and in the process has lost his heart. He will see that no harm will ever come to her and she is destined to forever hold his soul. From the moment he disobeyed orders and interfered in her life he knew he could no longer deny his Wolf and she would be his. An old threat is rising, Reuban and Jess will have to fight together for their lives and their love, a love that has been written by Fate herself. But can they overcome new lies and truths that could destroy the very world they are part of? The Queen and her army must be stopped before she can break her bonds and return to this world bringing Hell along for the ride. Jessica never asked for this life but she sure as hell won’t be going down without a fight and Reuban will be by her side for every second – bring it on!
My Novella follows Juliet (a vampire) one of the secondary characters in Rising Dawn and Troy (an elder witch). My hope is that between novels I will continue to write novellas to explain the back stories to all my secondary characters as they have so much to tell. I published this 15th May 2013 and as you may have guessed is also Paranormal erotica.
Juliet has been living her life day by day for over four hundred years but being burnt at the stake can do that to a woman. A lover lost had burned deep within her veins ever since and continues to cloud her judgement. A Vampire with a broken heart is not someone to be messed with but the Council has given her the escape she needs. However she also acquires a troublesome nineteen year old in the process that is in danger of melting her heart. Fate is laughing in Juliet's face and situations are beginning to drag her designer clad ass through hell but with the help of friends a light is blooming on the horizon. Troy has lived with secrets all his life and his family have paid deeply for them at the hands of Juliet. His heart is torn between his love for her and the need for revenge but every time he sees her he cannot control his desires. He knows he can never replace the love she lost but he hopes he can open her heart again and make her realise she is not the 'Ice Bitch' she believes.
My current WIP is Darkest Dawn which follows on directly from Rising Dawn. The plot thickens and this time is written from two perspectives; Jess and her father (who I can’t tell you who it is as it would be a massive spoiler for Rising Dawn). I am hoping this will be released 1st September 2013.
The Darkest Days are finally upon us and the Daughters of Eve shall rise again.
Jess sacrificed herself for the people she loved but she now has to pay the consequences for her actions because something dark is coming and it is heading straight for her. She really did not think her life could get any more complicated but when another tall dark stranger walks back into her life she realises she has a decision to make. All she wants is for everyone to leave her alone and let her live the life she thought she once had but things are getting out of control fast. The love she has for Reuban can only ground her for so long and her anger is beginning to spiral out of control. If she tells him how she really feels she could lose him forever or get him killed and that is a risk she could never forgive herself for.
The Council have accepted her for what she is but has she? There is a huge possibility everyone she loves is going to die if she stays, but if she walks away she will have to leave the love of her life behind and that would rip her soul apart.
The only way out is to work with the one person she hates more than anything in this world and that was going to take a lot of self-restraint if she was going to get through this nightmare without killing him.
Reuban can see the torment within Jess and it is breaking his heart. He would do anything to ease her pain even if it meant letting her walk away, destroying him in the process. His only hope is to seek guidance from Brigate and finally understand the true meaning of Megan's Prophecy. It started with a Prophecy and it is there he will find the truth and it is a secret that could tear the Council to pieces.
A fractured alliance will be formed again with a new generation of warriors and Jess is at its centre. The war is about to begin and a destiny will finally be fulfilled!
I will also have a companion for the series as another ongoing project that will have character interviews and deleted scenes which will be released early next year.
