The veil is thin. Darkness calls. Will you answer?

Halloween curses plague the daring heroes and spunky heroines in this spirited collection of tales. A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve brings you 20+ stories stuffed with everything from dark gods to brooding shifters, delivering hours of decadent, pleasure-filled reading from bestselling and award winning urban fantasy and paranormal romance authors.

If you can’t get enough of those supernatural creatures—vampires, ghosts, witches, demons, and fae—this limited edition collection will alternately thrill you with the spicy and tempt you with the sweet. Delve into these worlds where the living haunt the dead and the undead tempt the breathing.

Answer the call, because this Halloween, not all the costumes are disguises.

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What is your personality type?

I’m an introvert with extrovert tendencies. I know, it probably doesn’t make sense. When I was a kid, I was painfully shy with people. I was quiet and didn’t talk much. After I began working at Waldenbooks, I was forced into a situation where I had to talk to people to sell them books. I discovered the art of conversation and it’s a skill I’m grateful to have learned. Now, I can talk to anyone about anything, but I still prefer to keep to myself. I love to socialize, but I also love to be alone.

What was your favorite childhood game?

I spent many nights with my family playing boardgames and card games. Some of my favorites were Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble. Each of these games were difficult since I was no older than 11 years old, but I still loved them. They were challenging, and I love challenges. Also, Uno and Pokeno. My grandfather was fun to play any card game with as he always made me laugh myself silly.

What is your favorite subject to talk about?

I’m a mother of four children, so anything about kids is probably my easiest topic to talk about. Anyone with children can go on and on about their kids! But I love learning and sharing things I learned, so I have many interests such as books and literature, TV shows and movies, history, science, art, quantum physics, religion, and the supernatural. But not math. I don’t want to talk about math. Especially common core math. *shudders*

With Halloween right around the corner, my favorite topic at the moment is the supernatural! If you ever want to strike up a conversation with me, tell me your ghost stories! I love, love, love talking about the paranormal. Give me ghosts, cryptids, vampires, werewolves, witches and spells, aliens and UFO’s. Anything that has a mysterious supernatural element to it. I will talk about it all! I have my own interesting stories to share and I belong to a few paranormal groups with like-minded people. Too many strange and unexplainable things have happened during my life, so rest assured, I am a believer!

What is your favorite book?

Nope. Can’t narrow it down to just one. Skip!

What is your favorite meal?

Grilled salmon with rice and vegetables. Oh, it’s delicious! I could eat this every day. Don’t forget to follow that meal with dessert! A nice warm brownie covered with mocha ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Heaven!

Tell us about yourself as a writer

Meet Tricia Schneider @TriciaSchneider Author of A Cursed All Hallows’ Eve #RLFblog #PNR #Halloween2020

What made you want to be a writer?

I must have been born reading. I don’t ever remember not having books in my home. Even the pictures I drew when I was a child all had stories to tell. I never wanted to be a writer, I just am. It’s a part of me. I always wrote for fun. In a creative writing class during my senior year in high school, my teacher urged me to consider publication. He believed I had talent. It was the first time in my life that I thought of writing as a possible career choice.

What are your favorite books for writing advice?

I’ve got a couple of these which you can find if you check out my Goodreads bookshelf labeled writing-reference.

How I Write: Secrets of a Bestselling Author by Janet Evanovich

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers by Christopher Vogler

Complete Writer’s Guide to Heroes and Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes by Tami D. Cowden

GMC: Goal, Motivation and Conflict: The Building Blocks of Good Fiction by Debra Dixon

Any of Chris Fox’s Write Faster, Write Smarter series

Any of Joanna Penn’s books

What’s your best advice for a new writer?

Read. Read. Read. There’s so much you can learn by simply reading the kinds of books that you want to write. Never stop reading. And don’t give up!

What are your writing goals for the next year or so?

I’ve recently joined a writer’s group on Facebook that has inspired me to push my writing abilities. In that group, I’ve joined several multi-author boxed sets. For 2021, I’m all about writing shifters and alien romances. Between my own series and the stories that I’m writing for the boxed sets, it’s going to be a busy, busy year! I’m looking forward to it!

Bucket list of Gwen Taylor from Hidden Gypsy Magic @tenastetler #RLFblog #ParanormalRomanceDiscover the consequence of awaking Hidden gypsy magic in Tena Stetler’s new Paranormal Romance Hidden Gypsy Magic. Gwen a wildlife rehabilitor, and Brock a veterinarian, discover the mysteries of magic and Gypsy heritage when he buys an old house in Salem, Mass.

Let’s meet Gwen Taylor from Hidden Gypsy Magic. Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Hidden Gypsy Magic.

Hidden Gypsy Magic by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery/Timetravel

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

The Salem Wildlife Sanctuary is Gwen Taylor’s life work. Her Irish Gypsy heritage provides a hidden talent she uses to help the creatures under her care. But even her magical skills can’t help new rescues in dire need of veterinary care.

The opportunity of signing on as the vet for Gwen’s sanctuary dropped into Brock Scutter’s lap after he expanded his practice to include wildlife. The personal attraction he and Gwen experience is undeniable the more their professional and personal lives collide.

Touring the only “non-haunted” house in Salem they both feel a spark of magic. A trip to his family’s cabin uncovers a heritage he didn’t know existed. If they want a future together, it means facing the consequences of awakening hidden Gypsy magic and a race against the clock to correct past wrongs.

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”

Age: 30’s

Gender: Female

Birthplace: Salem, Mass

Profession: Wildlife Rehabitator and Sanctuary manager/owner

Ethnicity: Irish Gypsy

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’ve been called tall willowy

I have long black hair with pink and green highlights

Large mesmerizing violet eyes

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I’ve worked for Salem Sanctuary since high school. When I discovered the owner/operator was cooking the books, taking money meant for the creatures in their care, I confronted him. The next day, he disappeared but not before he cleaned out the bank account. I couldn’t leave all those animals defenseless. Taking a chance, I went public with what had happened. An arrest warrant was issued for the owner, but he was never found. However, the people of Salem rallied around me and the Sanctuary. Donations poured in and I was able to keep the sanctuary afloat.

Who is the significant other in your life?

Brock Scutter. Gwen fans herself. We were introduced by Pepper and Lathen. Brock is the brother of the veterinarian, Dylan, in Lobster Cove where Pepper built a Wildlife rescue.

If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.

What is your birth order?

Only child.

Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.

I never had many toys. For as long as I can remember, I was always bringing home injured creatures with nowhere to go. Not popular with my family. Anyway toys were frivolous things in my world.

Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.

Pizza! Thin crust, lots of cheese, lots of sauce, and beef sprinkled around. I like other spicy meats, but they don’t like me. Ya know what I mean?

Tell us about your best friend.

That would be Pepper McKay. I first hired her as a volunteer at the Sanctuary years ago. Together, we’ve overcome so many adversities, saved so many creature’s lives, it’s impossible to put into words what she means to me.

What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?

Australia – They have so many different species of wildlife found nowhere else on the planet.

Ireland – I’d like to look up… will find out of any of my relatives are like me – rather than my immediate family. Enough said

Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?

I’ve not been to many places. So far I’ve not found one I wouldn’t return to.

Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?

Terry, Binde, Robert Irwin. They are trail blazers in wildlife conservation. I’d like to have met Steve. But…

Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?

The damn banker. He did finally get what was coming to him. I don’t feel bad about that. And the original owner/manager of Salem Sanctuary. He is a terrible person.

If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?

The day the former owner/manger of Salem Sanctuary ran off. I’d like to have beat him to the bank and prevented him from taking all the money. Sometimes I wonder if he and the banker were in cahoots. Never prove it, so best to let it go.

Meet Tena Stetler

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?

Putting a different spin on the Salem Witch Trials.

Why did you choose this character for the interview today?

Gwen has been a staple in all A Witch’s Journey books. She is such a bold character with a heart of gold.

When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?

Her ability to see the best in most people but not in herself.

Are any sequels planned for this book?

Actually, I’m glad you asked. Chocolate Raspbery Magic (Set to release in April of 2021) is the fourth book in A Witch’s Journey Series and one of the One Scoop or Two summer series from The Wild Rose Press.

What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?

Cozy Mysteries. In fact I have one finished (it will be a three book series), just need time to polish it and submit it to my publisher.

What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I was a DJ for a rock and roll radio station.

Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?

Now more than ever, we need heart-warming, feel-good books to whisk us away from our new normal into a magical, fantasy adventure for just a few hours. Hidden Gypsy Magic and all of my books for that matter are a welcome stress reliever, if only for a few hours at a time.

Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers? Thank you so much. I hope stories to whisk you away from your ordinary world into a fantasy adventure where you forget your troubles and stress, if only for a few hours.

Read the new vampire romance Fin d'Espoir by Lisabet Sarai @LisabetSarai #RLFblog #NewRelease #VampireRomanceA former slave turned vampire by his cruel mistress struggles against his nature in Lisabet Sarai’s new paranormal romance, Fin d’Espoir. Etienne de Rémorcy has vowed to never again taste human blood, but he cannot resist the young couple who offer not only their bodies but also their hearts.

Lisabet, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Fin d’Espoir.

Fin d’Espoir by Lisabet Sarai

Genre: Bisexual Paranormal Erotic Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

Bitter and alone, Etienne de Rémorcy haunts the forest around the ruined plantation of Fin d’Espoir. He has sworn to never again taste human blood. Then a fierce storm and a runaway horse bring a slender, raven-haired beauty to his lair. When she begs him to take her, he cannot resist.

Madeleine and Troy hope that a carefree vacation in tropical Jamaica will reignite their faded passion. On a mountain trail ride, Maddy’s horse bolts, carrying her deep into the jungle. Injured and lost, she is saved by a giant of a man whose mere presence kindles unbearable desire. By the time she understands his dark nature, it is far too late for her to escape.

When Maddy returns, Troy finds her greatly changed : ravenous in bed, restless and disturbed otherwise. The elegant stranger he meets on the beach holds the key to her transformation – and soon has seduced Troy as well.

Tortured by his conscience, Etienne is determined to set the young couple free. But their love may be his last hope for redemption.

Why did you write this book?

Fin d’Espoir was inspired by a trip I took to Jamaica, many years ago. On one tour, we visited a ruined plantation buried deep in the jungle. The brooding atmosphere of the place made a deep impression on me. When I decided I wanted to write a vampire character distinctly different from the typical Caucasian, Dracula-inspired blood drinker, that experience came back to me. The book includes other scenes from that journey as well, including a midnight swim in the lava-rock grottoes of Negril.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I read a wide variety of genres, so it’s quite difficult to pick just one. However, if you force me to do so, I think I’d select science fiction. I’ve been reading scifi since I learned how to make out the words on the page, starting with the Mushroom Planet books, moving on to Heinlein and Bradbury, branching out to Philip K. Dick, Neal Stephenson, Octavia Butler, Sherri Tepper, and more. The explosion of books by indie authors offers a wealth of new and exciting choices in the genre.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

That’s another tough question! I don’t think I can provide an absolute answer, since I’m very influenced by what I’ve read lately. One character who comes to mind is Miss Alexia Tarabotti from Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series. I tend to like female characters with strong opinions who aren’t afraid to speak their minds.

What are you working on at the moment?

I am currently writing the second to last chapter of a novel called The Pornographer’s Apprentice, first book in a steam punk erotica series, The Toymakers Guild. I write a good deal of out-and-out erotica, as well as erotic romance. This book is a lot of fun – in fact it features a smart, strong heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind! But I probably won’t be featuring it on Romance Lives Forever.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

I’d like to bring out a sequel to my MM science fiction romance The H-Gene, which was released a few months ago. It’s the first book in a series called After the Plague. I also plan a mature romance for the holidays, possibly reprising the 60+-aged characters from Gray Christmas.

Find out what Aaron from Bitter Thorn Tribe wears to bed. Juli D Revezzo "bares" all @julidrevezzo #RLFblog #paranormalromanceA chat with an immortal warrior about what he wears to bed and more…

Aaron, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Bitter Thorn Tribe (Stewards War, book 2) by Juli D Revezzo

Genre: paranormal romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Destined to be a bride, if only the gods will let her…

Stacy Macken tries to acclimate herself to her training under Tuatha dé Danaan druids–as if she doesn’t have enough work in planning her wedding to her beloved guardian and fiancé Aaron.

When Fomorii loyalists violate their treaty and seek deadly revenge for their recent defeat, even Stacy’s druids are at a loss to explain the mayhem that ensues.

Can Aaron and his brothers-in-arms stop it before Stacy and her family are caught in the crossfire?

Let’s bare it all and chat about what to wear

First, what is your name and how old are you?

Hello, my name is Aaron and… I’m 3,000 years old, give or take.

What is the time period in which you live?

Currently, I’m living in 2015. I came from the Iron Age, however.

What is considered “appropriate” for someone of your gender to wear?

These days, you folks are pretty simple in your clothing. Or restricted, depending. There was a time, my dear, when I’d go naked and no one would, as you say, bat an eye.

How do you feel about wearing that type of clothing?

I don’t really like ties. The damned things are too choking.

Considering the role you play in society, what is expected for you to wear?

These days? My Irish stick fighting school has a pretty loose uniform; in battle, I usually wear battle leathers, and every day, I’m fond of jeans and a t-shirt. In the Iron age, it was usually just loose linen pants, shirts, and cloaks when it was cold. But I live in Florida, now, and don’t usually have to break out the cold weather clothing.

Ever required to wear something you don’t like? Tell us about it.

Ties. Shudder. What fool came up with those things. You might as well wear a noose.

Do you make your own clothing?

No. The women in my tribe used to do most of the clothes construction; now, the Tuatha de Dannan have their own tailors, so I and my brothers-in-arms, usually go to them. For modern street clothes, the local tailor does well, but again, I usually turn to those of my tribe. But in a pinch, I’ve had to mend them before.

Mending and laundry are chores for anyone. Do you do it or someone else?

I do my own. Well, did, before I moved in with Stacy. Now, we share that chore.

What determines the type of clothing you buy? (example, money, fashion, job)

I go for comfort.

When you wear something different, who’s the first person who notices?

Usually Stacy.

Tell us your favorite thing to wear.

Nothing. ;)

What kind of shoes or boots do you wear?

I’m fond of combat boots. The last few years, I never know when I’m going to need them.

Does what you wear make you feel good, or do you dislike it?

As I go for comfort—especially if, you know, a battle with Balor’s minions should break out—I don’t hang my self-esteem on my clothing.

When others see you what is their first impression?

Bad guys, usually think twice.

How do you feel about that impression?

If it keeps Stacy safe, I’m all for it.

What do you wear to sleep?

;D Nothing.

Ever dealt with a “wardrobe malfunction”? Depending on your era, you might need to ask your author what this means.

Find out what Aaron from Bitter Thorn Tribe wears to bed. Juli D Revezzo "bares" all @julidrevezzo #RLFblog #paranormalromanceNot that I can remember.

Does anyone help you dress (other than a lover)?

*stares* My dear, did you miss the part about my age? Okay, I’ll say the Tuatha de Dannan tailors, and there may’ve been a back buckle on a bandolier or two that was tricky.

Have you ever worn:

a uniform : Yes, if battle leathers count.

a costume: Maybe when I was a child, I don’t remember, it’s been so long ago.

a disguise: We did in our tribe for different ceremonies, but I haven’t worn one in… donkeys years.

an outfit for the opposite gender: no.

What would you wear to avoid attention?

Whatever the dominant culture is wearing.

What do you wish you could wear?

I’m fairly happy with my current wardrobe, so I don’t really have an answer for that question, Kayelle.

What do you wish you didn’t have to wear?

Battle leathers. I’d love it if our war with Balor ended permanently.

For the character to answer…

Tell us what your author wears when writing about you.

Usually jeans, t-shirt, and a flannel shirt.

If your author has a pet, is the pet ever dressed in clothing?

She doesn’t have a pet, but when as a child, yes she had cats and dogs. Her family never dressed them up, though.

Same question for you. Pets in clothing, yay or nay?

Hey, if it makes the owner happy, why not?

Read the series: Seducing the Darkness by Shiela Stewart @shielasue#RLFblog #Paranormal romanceNo one is safe when the sun is gone in Shiela Stewart’s Paranormal Romance, Seducing the Darkness. Not even the vampires.

Shiela Stewart, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your series.

Seducing the Darkness in the The Darkness series

Genre Paranormal Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R

An outcast by her kind, Trinity Ford has learned to live on her own…not an easy thing to do when you’re a vampire.

Trinity was once a fragile girl. Being taken by a powerful vampire prince changed her. Discovering him in the arms of another woman changed destiny. Alone, she’s learned fast how to be tough, how to survive, and how to protect the people in her city from the evil that lurks in the dark. She was managing just fine, until Basil walked back into her life.

Basil Hawthorn has been the reigning prince of vampires since banishing his father to the Realm of Dark Mystics decades earlier. When a prophetic dream makes him realize Trinity’s life is at risk, he decides the only way to save her is to push her away. Doing so is not easy. Trinity is the only woman he has ever loved, ever will love, and he can’t seem to let her go.

When rumors arise of a plan to raise the King and blot out the sun, both Trinity and Basil know they must do everything to stop it. Even if it means working together. Despite the betrayal and the threat, they find themselves drawn to each other. Love has no boundaries, especially in the face of danger. But will they be able to stop the ritual before it’s too late?

Or will the darkness capture them both?

Which book is this in the series?

Seducing the Darkness is the first book.

How many books do you plan for the series?

Originally it was only going to be a single book with everything wrapping up in Seducing the Darkness. After my publisher read it, she asked if I might consider making it a series. She was thinking 3 books. I couldn’t let the characters go, so 8 were created.

How many books are completed?

All 8 books are complete. I was writing one book while editing the other so that all 8 could be released in one year.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

The heroine is Trinity Ford and she’s a vampire as is the hero, Basil Hawthorn. He is also the Prince of vampires. They are the lead in the first six books, then make guest appearances in the last two.There are also 3 other characters that are key in every book.

What is the overall theme in this series?

Trinity isn’t your normal vampire. She wants to keep her city safe by taking out as many bad vampires as she can. But when a ritual is performed to blot out the sun over Jacob’s Cove, she has her hands full. Each book introduces a new character that are love interests for the 3 other main characters. With the sun gone, the vampires are taking over. Trinity, Basil and the other characters try to save what humans haven’t fled the city while trying to bring the sun back. In the midst of all the mayhem, love blooms adding brightness to a very dark situation. Each book takes up where the previous ended.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

Seducing the Darkness Bk1
Desiring the Darkness Bk 2
Embracing the Darkness Bk 3
Charming the Darkness Bk 4
Tempting the Darkness Bk 5
Penetrating the Darkness Bk 6
Consuming the Darkness A New Beginning Bk 7
Surviving the Darkness A New Beginning Bk 8

What did you like best about writing this series?

The ability to keep the hero and heroines storyline going. Unlike most other romance series books, I give the readers a look at what happens to the couples after their budding romance begins.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

To date I have 15 published books with a 16th and 17th on in editing.
Awaken the Demon. Offer the Demon. Conquer the Demon
