Cover and Upcoming Contest

Posted in Romance on August 6th, 2007 by Cynthia Eden

My Avon Red cover is now official! Yay! :-) To the right you’ll see the cover image for A RED HOT NEW YEAR, featuring my novella, New Year’s Bites. Here’s a little blurb for my tale:

While on her way to a New Year’s Eve party, Anna Summers is attacked and bitten by a large, wolf-like creature. She is saved by sexy security expert, Jon York. But Jon isn‘t quite who he seems to be, and Anna…well, she’s starting to change. The quiet, good-girl she’d been before the bite disappears, and a wild, sensual, almost…animalistic woman takes her place. The hot lust that burns through her body every moment she’s around Jon soon flares out of control. Filled with new strength and passion, Anna begins to think she may be starting the best year of her life. Yet in the shadows, someone is stalking her–waiting for another sweet bite. For Anna, the New Year that began with a blaze of passion may burn out with the dangerous rise of the moon.

Now, this story was a bit different for me. I wrote a werewolf trilogy for Red Sage, but my wolves were the heroes in those tales. This time, well, I thought it was time for a switch.

I’m going to be running a contest soon in conjunction with the release of A RED HOT NEW YEAR. I’ll be giving away a New Year’s Eve Party Pack (with party supplies–hats, noise makers, etc., for 25 people). More details on the contest will be posted soon.

Least favorite paranormal creature?

Posted in Romance on August 5th, 2007 by Cynthia Eden

For me, well, there isn’t any contest–my least favorite para creature has to be the zombie. Oh, jeez, but I hate zombies. Maybe it’s because they are depicted as being so dim-witted (or just, um, no-witted). Maybe it’s the fact that, in general, their flesh falls off their bodies as they lurch after their prey (prey that can never run fast enough). Or maybe it’s just because they eat brains. Not sexy.

Now, sure, I saw Shaun of the Dead a few years ago, and I (pretty much) enjoyed the movie. But I do not WILLINGLY make a habit of watching zombie flicks.

Now, my husband, he’s a different story. The man loves zombies. Zombie video games. Zombie movies. Zombie books. If there’s a zombie involved, he is a happy man. He even has a not-so-secret (especially now that I’m posting it on my blog) desire to make his own zombie film: Zombies from the Deep. Here’s a plot breakdown: Scuba divers find zombies in the deep–wake ‘em up–zombies then storm beaches and terrorize beach goers.

Ahem. Not necessarily the movie for me, but hey–different strokes for different folks, right?

So, tell me…just what is your least favorite paranormal creature–and why?
