Poetry Monday

Wednesday-This Wednesday-my firstborn will be sent out into the world! I'm so excited!!! Here is the blurb-and then a poem/spell within the book.
When Meru Tanner receives a mysterious birthday present, The Book of Veils, her world is turned upside down. Now she’s "seeing" things that aren’t supposed to be real, gabbing with gods—and having erotic premonitions about one sexy wolf-man she’d do anything to tame.

She tempted the feral beast inside him to come out and play. Damon Arkadios has kept the animal part of his nature leashed for thousands of years. He is a guardian, the leader of the Fianna warriors—but from the moment he caught her scent, he knew she was more than just another assignment. Protecting the little seer will challenge his own beliefs—and his control.

Can she accept the legacy handed down to her from the distant past and convince her Lycan to be a part of her future? Or will the ancient evil that threatens to destroy their world keep them from making a new beginning together?

And now the spell that starts it all:


I lift the veil behind which lies
Secrets shielded from my eyes
All Others by their Magick hidden
Are from my sight no more forbidden
Awaken mind where true eye dwells
Awaken soul within your shell
I call to Danu in my plight
Illuminate this darkest night
Contest Note:
It has come to my attention that some people are confused by the Night and Day contest Red Garnier and I are holding for our two vampire releases.
We are putting up one to two quotes a week on our blog-from movies and television-all related to vampires. Your mission is to collect them all and on April 30th, email me at r.g.alexander@hotmail.com with a list of the quotes AND their movie/series of origin. We will pick two winners. One will receive a tribal sun pendant with amber/the other a moonstone pendant. Both are gorgeous and I really wanted to keep them, so I'm sure you will love them. On that note.
CONTEST QUOTE #4: “There are worse things out tonight than vampires.”
”Like what?”
“Like me.”

Great quote! And your first born sounds pretty fabulous. Who wouldn't want to be so exciting, she makes her love interest fear losing the control he's kept for thousands of years? Wow!

Really? This is only your first-born? I would not have known that if you hadn't said so.

It sounds like a truly wonderful first-born, too.

I'm bummed you had to cancel RT. Really, I am going to have to make good on my threat to make a writer's commune-type place where we all live in the same town and the conferences are held at our convenience...
