Out in Blue guest post and contest

I'm so happy to welcome Sarah Gilman to the blog today and at the end of this post we are giving away one e-copy of Out in Blue. So leave a comment relating to fangs, nothing too dirty, and I will draw a winner this weekend.

Fangs

A big thanks to the Bite Club for hosting today! I thought it would be appropriate to talk about fangs for my guest post.

Fangs are usually associated with vampire characters for the obvious purpose of bloodsucking. Romance writers have taken vampires and their dark eating habits and have spun many delicious, unforgettable romances. Vampires have a long history in literature and stories often had sexual overtones, though in ways that served the era. I love how vampires in literature have evolved, and I doubt I’ll ever tire of them.

Sometimes a character’s fangs are fixed in place, sometimes they retract. Personally, I prefer the fixed fangs. When I write or read paranormal stories, I like to see the characters deal with the mixed blessing of their features. This is why, in my debut novel Out in Blue, I chose to give my archangel characters wings that did not disappear at convenient times. Same goes for my demon characters, who have an upper and lower set of fixed fangs, like cats.

These demons aren’t bloodsuckers. The fangs deliver venom in a bite deadly to humans. My demon characters are immune to their own venom, so death won’t result if they bite their tongues…or each other! The second book in the series will feature two demon protagonists. The story will explore additional characteristics of my demons, their venom, and the ways a bite might not be such as bad thing.

RETURN TO SANCTUARY - Book One 

In a violent world where fallen archangels are hunted for their valuable
plumage, Wren knows one thing for certain: the human woman who
saved him from a poacher attack will die if she stays with him. The de‐
mon responsible for his parents’ gruesome deaths two decades ago
pines for the chance to rip apart any woman who stands under Wren’s
wing.

Wren doesn’t expect Ginger to stay by his side once she discovers his
ability to drain life with a mere touch, yet she lingers. When an unusual
talent of her own reveals the location of Wren’s father, Wren’s isolated
world implodes. 

With the help of the demon protectors he’s sworn never to trust again,
Wren risks everything to rescue his father, confront the demon who
stalks his and Ginger’s every step, and claim his eternity with the most
courageous woman he’s ever known.




About the author:

Sarah Gilman started her first novel in third grade. She never finished that story,
but never gave up the dream. Her fascination with wings also began at that age,
when images of the ancient Egyptian goddess Isis captured her imagination and
never let go. 

Now a paranormal romance writer, she employs her love of writing to bring the
allure of winged creatures to the pages of her novels. Sarah lives in Vermont with
her supportive husband and two spoiled cats.

About the publisher:
Entangled Publishing is an exclusive, boutique publisher of romantic fiction. Located in Fort Collins, Colorado, Entangled's goal is to bridge the gap between traditional and indie publishing, giving both readers and authors the best of both worlds.
