Miranda’s Rights (Paranormal Detectives Series Book Two) Coming soon from Vamptasy Publishing! The dead don’t always rest easy. Retired detective Danny Mancini is haunted by nightmares after he found out that paranormal creatures exist. All he wants is to forget them…especially a certain half-vampire. When cursed werewolves show up trying to kill him, he is forced to go back to the Paranormal Investigative Division for help against a powerful old enemy. What he was not expecting was a dead ex showing back up after twenty-six years. Sound good? I hope so! If you haven’t read Stake-Out yet, I advise that you do, so you will be caught up by the time Miranda’s Rights is released! You can purchase it as an ebook or paperback by clicking here!

PUBLICATION ANNOUNCEMENT: “Death, Love and Lust” Anthology

Hello, readers! I am very happy to be able to announce my next project! I signed the contract today that my short story “The Devil’s Dozen” will be featured in the upcoming anthology Death, Love and Lust! The anthology will be published by Hot Ink Press (a sister company to Vamptasy Publishing, the company who published Stake-Out), and edited by the wonderful Catherine Stovall. It is set to release on November 14th, so mark your calendars!

Below is the synopsis of the story and some teaser images I made for it. This is my very first attempt at writing erotic romance, and I am very pleased that my submission was considered acceptable to be placed amongst some truly talented erotica writers! (Of course, this is erotic horror, as horror will probably always be my main genre.) NOTE: this story is LGBT!

All Claire wants to do is get some gas and go home. She never expected to become involved in a very deadly Friday The 13th myth with a very beautiful woman.thansbedroom devilsdozen devilsdpzenpromothanclaire

Detective Danny Mancini is on a case, following a murder suspect. When he catches him, he finds out that the perp isn’t even human: he’s a 200 year old rogue vampire!

The department doesn’t believe him, and puts him on early retirement, despite his many years of service to the Chicago Police Department, which sends him into a downward spiral.

Two years later, Danny gets an invitation from the beautiful, young and very attractive Detective Angelica Cross to join a secret branch of the FBI to help her track down Vincent, the wayward vamp.

But renegade werewolves, meddling immortal witches and Danny’s strange visions of a life lived a century ago with Angelica make things more difficult than it should be.

PUBLICATION ANNOUNCEMENT: “Love Sucks Anthology”

Hello, everyone! I am sorry for my radio silence on WP, but I have been hard at work on my upcoming debut novel, Stake-Out (coming May 19th from Vamptasy Publishing for those of you who might not already know).

But I have a second announcement!

My short vampire story, “Undead Ever After” is going to be a part of the Love Sucks Anthology, which will be published on June 13th from Crushing Hearts And Black Butterfly Publishing (the owners of Vamptasy). I am very excited to share all of my work with you! Thanks to everyone who follows me, who reads my tweets, likes my Facebook posts and generally supports me! Looking forward to sharing these and many more vampiric stories with you in the future! (The image attached is a promo photo you can use to help promote Love Sucks, not the actual cover, as that has not been revealed yet!)

PUBLICATION ANNOUNCEMENT: “Wishful Thinking”

wishfulthinking coverwishfulthinkingcontents

Hello, readers! I am so very excited to be announcing the official publication of the anthology Wishful Thinking from Fireside Press, the first in the Wishes series of books.

In Wishful Thinking, you will find my horror/sci-fi short story, “Kill ‘Em With Kindness”, about a young man who wishes people would just be kind. He gets his wish, but it all quickly goes horribly wrong…

I was inspired to write this story because of two things: one, the state of this absolutely crazy world we live in and two, a quote I heard a few years ago, about wanting kindness to be a normal thing instead of a rarity. This is my favorite story I’ve written to date and I am so glad that Fireside Press picked it up!

Below you will find the Amazon link (the book is only $0.99!). Please purchase it and leave a review, helping the indie writer community that came together to make this book possible. Most of all, ENJOY!

I grew up surrounded by books, and to know that my story is out there, in a book, for people to enjoy at the leisure, it amazes me. I am so grateful and thankful to God and to everyone who believed in me and encouraged me through this journey. My mom, for one, has always been just the best. She;s the reason I keep pushing onwards. But I have so many friends who keep me going by being supportive. You all know who you are.

Enjoy everyone! xoxo LL

Light You Up (a poem)

Woke up this morning missing you more than ever
Been so long since we were together
I long to feel your skin on mine
Hear your laugh resonate from your chest
See your smile face-to-face
Sit down & talk about
Everything & nothing
At the same time
Are you happy now?
Where you are
Does it fit you now?
Do you think of me at all
Unbidden in the m middle of the action?
Or am I nothing but
A memory
A little girl who
Never really meant much to you?
I want to be more
I want to be there
Or I want you here
Anywhere
Where we can be together again
You light up my life
Let me might up yours
