TBR Thursday: The Beast of London by L.D. Goffigan

I have such a soft spot for Mina Murray books. I fell in love with her in the film versions of Dracula when I was younger, then she became my personal queen and savior in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. If she’s a lead, I’m there!

34615862.jpgAn electrifying retelling of a classic tale, THE BEAST OF LONDON is the first book of the Mina Murray series.

Mina Murray once lived an adventurous life, but after a tragedy in the forests of Transylvania, she left it all behind. Now she has settled into a quiet routine as a schoolteacher in London, engaged to the respectable solicitor Jonathan Harker, attempting to fit into the stuffy upper class London society to which he belongs.

Her dark past comes careening into her present when Jonathan is abducted by a group of vampires from a society ball. Determined to rescue him, she teams up with her former paramour Abraham Van Helsing and his colleague, Scotland Yard Inspector John Seward.

As they pursue Jonathan’s abductors from England to the Low Countries and beyond, Mina realizes that Jonathan’s abduction is tied to a larger threat against humanity…

If you love adventure, romance, and mystery with a paranormal twist, then this is the book for you.


Tentative 2017-2018 Pub Schedule

News, News, News!

As you all know, I had to take a step back and seriously rework my publication plans for the rest of the year thanks to my post-concussion syndrome. Things are chugging along steadily with the old brain. Some days are better than others, and I heard somewhere you needed to measure recovery in 6-month stages rather than week to week feels, so here I am, trying to be optimistic.

At this point, for the sake of my brain, I’m sticking to works 40K and under. They are more manageable in the writing, revision, and publishing stages for my health.

Therefore, larger standalones are on hold until I’m more recovered — including The Queen, which will run close to 90K. Ideally I’ll have the health to complete and publish the final book in the Games We Play duology next year, but I’m not making promises, because brains are silly. I would also love to get another Lovers and Liars installment done, but they tend to run closer to 45-50K, so I’m also waiting on those. Boo.

Anywhoodle. I wanted to give a tentative publication outline for the rest of the year. It’s currently on my calendar, and here’s to hoping that I’ll get it all done. I’m excited. I’m just hoping it’s possible. Pray for me.

Fall 2017:

All In Trilogy (Finn, Cole, Skye) ~ erotic romance novella trilogy + paperback with deleted scenes

Apollo’s Priestess (Lovers and Liars: Immortal Wars, #2) ~ paranormal romance novella featuring, you guessed it, Apollo’s priestess and potentially a wolf shifter (supernatural being still tbd)

Holiday Hell (Erotic Short Shorts, #2) ~ short contemporary erotic romance, holiday-themed

Winter 2018:

To the North (Lovers and Liars: Immortal Wars, #3) ~ fantasy romance ft. Athena and Lugh again, headed to Asgard

Four-book incubus serial, title TBD ~ paranormal romance with darker elements between an incubus escort and a woman who isn’t quite as human as she appears
