Book Rec: Cherry Stem released!

Sotia Lazu's Cherry Stem

ISBN: 978-1-61118-718-2

Genre: Vampire Paranormal

Length: Novel Plus

Turned at the cusp of a promising career in the adult movie industry, vampire Cherry Stem is currently unemployed but uses the squint, her compelling vampire gaze, on men for her meals and pocket change. With the rent deadline approaching, settling for pocket change isn’t an option. She sets her sights on tall, dark, and handsome Alex Marsden, who takes her home for a night of blistering passion. She doesn't tell him who she is.

Cherry isn’t the only one keeping secrets. Alex is the police detective investigating the disappearance of young women from the local clubs. Like most detectives, Alex has a good memory for faces and Cherry looks familiar. When he finds out she’s a vampire, he goes digging and discovers she's an up-and-coming model who went missing six years before.

When Cherry met Alex, she expected him to be nothing more than another “girl meets boy, girl feeds from boy, girl erases boy’s memories” hook-up. But once missing young women, the vampire council, and her irresistible ex are thrown into the mix, she realizes nothing is as simple or random as she thought it was, and Alex is either the biggest gift or the biggest mistake of her un-life.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: anal play/intercourse.

What I Don't Like

What do I not like? Seeing search hits like this:

my once and future love carla krae mediafire.com

Any book of mine downloaded from Mediafire or anywhere like it is stolen, my friends. Stolen.

Not okay. Period.

It's called e-book piracy, and I know I can't stop all of it or prevent it, but please.....getting a book free from a download site is NOT like visiting a library and borrowing a book for free. You're stealing money out of the author's pocket every. single. time.

So don't do it. Tell your friends not to do it.

The vast majority of authors are not like Stephen King, J.K. Rowling, or Stephanie Meyer. We're not rich at all. Most of us don't even make a living wage off our writing alone, so when you steal books, it hurts us. Enough people do it, it hurts a lot.

Do your part to fight against media piracy.

January 2012

When did that happen? Doesn't feel like a year has passed since I went public as a writer. My first stories debuted January 2011.

What's in store for 2012? Finishing and polishing the sequel to My Once and Future Love, of course. Continued posts of The Unsuspecting Bride. More from The Sanctuary War universe. I have lots of plans for that.

I'm grateful for all of you that keep visiting. The support on Facebook and in reviews really means a lot. I hope you'll enjoy what's to come.
