His Omega by A.C. Katt

His Omega, the first book in the Werewolves of Manhattan Series is now out in audio. The book is narrated by the talented Joel Froomkin, who makes His Omega come alive with his interpretation of the accents of an international case. Dimitri, the Russian villain sounds appropriately ominous, as if he arrived from Moscow, yesterday. Armand, The Alpha of French origin comes across as sexy and Sean, the young American caught up in the drama is portrayed as young and uncertain.

His Omega as the first book of the series starts to build the world the loup garou inhabit. It introduces the loup garou concept of Betas and Enforcers, letting the reader know that Betas are assigned to their Alpha at their majority and unlike other werewolf books, you are born to your position and will retain that position for all of your time on life’s wheel. The series follows the eight Alphas who sit on the Loup Garou governing council in their quest for Mates and their Mates’ journey to their Alphas.

Here’s an excerpt:

He wasn’t sure he wanted to do this; but it was either sell himself or stay out on the street. Sean was frightened; but too hungry to care and enough of a pragmatist to know what had to be done. He had to talk himself into it. Prostitution, simple, he was going to make himself into a rent boy. Tears dropped from his eyelashes and down his high cheekbones. He never understood before why someone would sell themselves for money. Now he knew, rent himself out or starve; those were his choices. Leroy, one of the boys on Chelsea Pier he knew through a friend at NYU, told him that he could make good money at the trade.

“You’re small, blond with fair skin lacking freckles, dude. Your lips are full, your eyes a brilliant green. You look a lot younger than you are. You could make a fortune in this business, the perfect twink, but I think we need to find you a pimp to be safe.”

“This isn’t a life choice. All I want is money to eat and get a place to sleep until I have enough for a bus ticket to Boston. My friend Tony lives there with his wife. He’ll take me in and I’ll get a chance to make a few bucks at an honest job so I can finish school.”

“I’ll watch out for you until you land on your feet. You can crash with me on the sofa; but I can’t afford to feed you.”

“Thanks, I owe you.” They walked down to the pier together.

A huge man lurked at the edge of the pier looking over each boy as he arrived. He appeared dark and menacing.

“Oh shit, we gotta go hide. Run behind that dumpster in the alley and don’t come out until I come and get you. That Russian is into rough trade. The boys he likes disappear and he goes for twinks. If you want to stay healthy, run.”

“What about you?” Sean looked around in a panic.

“He doesn’t want me, so I’m safe. Now go—trust me.” Sean ran. Leroy didn’t have to tell him twice. He was about to prostitute himself, but he was no fool. He hid behind a large green dumpster on the right side of the alley. He pulled garbage bags and garbage in front of him for cover.

“I saw him, the blond. Where’d he go?” Sean listened as the huge Russian interrogated Leroy. “You talked to him no more than five minutes ago so you must know him.” The Russian grabbed Leroy by the front of tight black T-shirt and shook him. “You told him to leave, you little rat bastard.”

“He asked me for a joint then, disappeared.” The big man slapped Leroy then held his fist out menacingly. “Okay, Okay. I know him from NYU. He’s green. Look, he isn’t in the trade. He has no experience, you wouldn’t want him.”

“I saw him and I want him, tell me where he went, or I’ll beat the shit out of you.”

“He went over there, toward the pier,” Leroy said, turning way from where Sean hid behind the dumpster.

The Russian went into a rage. “What? You think I’m a fool? He slid into that alley.”

“No, no, he went back home. He’s not into this. He’s uh…waiting for someone else, he made an appointment.”

“I thought you said he wasn’t for rent. You’re fucking with me Leroy. I don’t allow anyone to fuck with me.”

Sean heard and watched in horror as the big man pulled a knife and shoved it into Leroy’s gut. Too frightened to call out, he saw Leroy fall to the ground. The man moved away from the alley, down toward the dumpster; for a minute Sean thought he saw the guy’s eyes turned red.

Vampires and Me, by J.P. Bowie

So, it’s no secret I have a thing for Vampires. I have written seventeen stories about them, and given the time I might just write seventeen more. After all, they do give a writer a lot of great stuff to work with. First of all, they’re immortal, so their stories can go on forever, unless they meet an untimely demise at the end of a silver stake or severed head… Yeah, even the strongest vamp can’t survive that. And then there’s the daylight thing, but vampires are usually really, really smart and can generally avoid most of those inconveniences.

In my books, I’ve dispelled some of the myths surrounding the vampires, the no reflection thing, the holy water and the cross making them weak, and that they all hail from Transylvania. Those were Bram Stoker inventions, and although I loved his Dracula, I wanted to work on the premise that vampires could actually mingle with humans without being all that noticeable. And of course, as the stories are mostly pretty erotic, the guys have to be super hot, if a little on the pale side.

Here’s the blurb for my latest, The Vampire and the M.D.:

When Dr. Blake Farnon hits a shadowy figure with his car, he is astounded when the man almost instantaneously recovers from the accident. But Daniel Vale is no ordinary man, as Blake soon discovers. Daniel is Vampire, and not only that, works for the US government in a secret department of the FBI. At first, although wary of the undeniably handsome vampire, Blake cannot resist Daniel’s allure for long. From the moment Daniel shows up at Blake’s apartment with a poisoned silver sword imbedded in his side, Blake is hurled into an adventure he never dreamed he would be a part of.

Demons, ancient gods and a vindictive goddess determined to tear apart the fragile fabric of world peace after the Middle East War, can only be stopped by other supernatural beings—vampires. And Blake finds himself caught up in the fight, whether he wants to be or not. Can his fledging relationship with Daniel possibly survive? He’d thought it crazy enough he’d fallen for a vampire, but the rest of it? What would his mother say?
