Pamela K. Kinney aka Sapphire Phelan--Love Halloween!

Halloween. The time when people dreamed of ghosts, werewolves, vampires and other things of terror. For me, it’s always been my favorite time of the year. The lingering scent of the candle-lit jack-o-lantern, reading scary stories, dressing up, and trick or treat.

Nowadays, I get to write those scary stories. As both Pamela K. Kinney and under the pseudonym, Sapphire Phelan, I write different types of tales. As Pamela, I even have two nonfiction books on the paranormal, Haunted Richmond, Virginia and Haunted Virginia: Legends, Myths and True Tales. Doing the research for these books has added fodder to my imagination for future fiction.

But let’s talk about Sapphire Phelan, and how she took the Deep Ones that H. P. Lovecraft wrote and made them the stars of a different erotic paranormal. Normally, I write erotic romances, with witches, demons, shapeshifters, aliens and more, but when I jokingly told my editor at Under the Moon about a short story, ‘Dark Eyes,” that I wrote and got accepted into an anthology, The Parasitorium: Parasitic Sands, deeming it a sort of Lovecraftian tale with sex with the monster in it, she thought it would b e a great idea for an anthology. Well, I wrote the novella, Unwitting Sacrifice, but the anthology never panned out. Instead she accepted it for Under the Moon. It is in both download and print form. And yes, the heroine has sex with Lovecraftian god/monster.

I’m sure Lovecraft is rolling over in his grave!

Blurb from Unwitting Sacrifice:
Lisa Selvey moved to Necro Bay, just on the outskirts of Chesapeake, Virginia. She moved there because of its reputation for peace and quiet. To free herself of her nightmares. But her nightmares were just beginning. . .Necro Bay was just your average American seaside town. The house she bought a normal home. The handsome man, Jacob Lindan that she met, nothing more than a sexually attractive man that whose touch made her mad with desire. Things nightmarishly changed and made her wonder if she wasn't going mad. Even worse, it made her wonder if something lurked in the shadows.

But the Lovecraft beasties aren’t the only monsters I have out for Halloween. Let’s try a tale set before and on Halloween, with a mortal who has a destiny to become a witch, but only if she allows one hunky demon Familiar to make love with her. If she doesn’t, well, let’s just say Armageddon just might kill her. Along with the planet.

Quite a dilemma for poor little Tina. But believe me, Charun will work on convincing her. After all, before he became a Familiar he had thousand years of Incubus under his belt.

And in honor of Halloween, I will be giving away a download of Unwitting Sacrifice and a download of Being Familiar With a Witch. You have to answer a question. What is the name of the town Lisa comes to live in? The answer is in the post above. The winner will be chosen at random from all correct entries.
