Howdy from Texas!
Hello everyone! Catherine Spangler here. Thank you, Lucy, for inviting me to be a guest on your blog. Hey gang, isn't Lucy awesome? She's one of the nicest people I know, and her books are hot! Love those sexy alpha heroes. We adore you, Lucy.
Now down to business. Lucy suggested I talk about my writing and my books. I didn't want to sound full of myself or bore y'all, but then I started thinking, I can talk books and never get tired of it. I love books. I love reading and I love writing them, and I love talking about them with other readers. So I'm guessing y'all are the same way, and your eyes won't glaze over when I discuss my new paranormal series ::g::.
The first book of the Sentinel Series, Touched by Darkness, will be out in January. The book has a *awesome* cover, with ultra-hottie Nathan Kamp. If you look closely (no, ladies, a little higher), you can see he's wearing a pendant, which all Sentinels wear. I had a goldsmith design it, and it's pink quartz crystal, hand wire-wrapped in sterling silver. I'm giving away a pendant this month and next month, so visit my website to enter at http://www.catherinespangler.com/.
This series features Sentinels, who are in human bodies but have superhuman powers. They psychically track specific evil beings, and a small handful of normal humans, conductors, have the ability to enhance their tracking abilities. Matched Sentinels and conductors are always opposite sex, and the conduction process raises some serious sexual energies. The sparks fly! I love alpha heroes, and the hero of Touched by Darkness, Damien Morgan, is no exception. He's tall, dark, and dangerous - and not completely human. Not to worry - Kara, the heroine, has been to hell and back and gives him a run fro the money.
Book two, Touched by Fire, will be out in October 2007. I hope you'll check out the series. There are excerpts and reviews on my webpage, and of course, the contest for the gorgeous pendant.
Discussion question (I think it's mandatory - LOL): What are some of your favorite book series?
I'll start it off: Besides Lucy's Mercenaries trilogy, I like J.D. Robb (Roark is yummy), J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Janet Evanovich (Stephanie Plum), and Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse) - and that's just to name a few. Okay, your turn. Tell us what series you like. We'll draw a name from the responses and the winner will receive her (or his) choice of one of my books and some chocolate (to enhance the reading experience
Happy Holidays! ~ Catherine
