This is what December 2007 Romantic Times Book Review had to say about Half Moon Rising:

“[an] entertaining and action-packed addition to the werewolf genre…”

“…characters are likable, the villain is nicely evil and the ending is highly satisfactory.”

They gave the book 4 stars! Yippy! Needless to say–I’m thrilled.

Today is also the day it is available in print.  You can buy it any of these links: Barnes and Noble.com, Amazon.com, and MBAM (Samhain’s store).

Blog Hopping Happiness

October 15, 2007 at 9:14 pm (Books of Interest, Cool Web Stuff, not Romances) (, , , )

I will be the first to admit it–I don’t read many blogs.

I don’t have the time.  I write on a laptop which isn’t connected to the ‘net and when I do get on-line I usually have a “to do” list in front of me.

But tonight I had some time to kill between cutting my husband’s hair and waiting for Heroes to finish recording, so I checked out Rebecca James’ blog–she always has something interesting to read.   I spent a few minutes catching up on her blog and decided to check out the people on her blogroll.

I struck gold with the first click:  A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing.  Needless to say I read some of his posts and they struck a chord.

I’m debating a rather major decision about my career and his posts were enlightening.

If you’re a writer, check out that blog.  It’s worth the time.

FREE SHORT STORY!

October 2, 2007 at 5:36 pm (Half Moon Rising, Margo Lukas Books, romance, Romance Books) (, , , , , )

I’ve added a new 2000 word short story to my page menu– Half Moon Origins: The Witch’s Spellboook  Check it out–the heroine isn’t your usual girl–she’s an elderly witch!  Hey, romance doesn’t end when you’re a senior citzen 🙂

Here’ the intro paragraphs.

Village of Lucia, Spain; 1485 

      The moonlight glowed too dimly through the cottage window.  The thick wax seal remained an undecipherable blur to the old witch, her eyes clouded by years spent toiling in the garden.

       While the stranger loomed over her small table, Isabel DeLagado caressed the wax ridges and let her fingertips prove the truth of the package’s sender.

      Surprise jolted her frail frame.  “The seal of the Alpha King himself?” 

     Carlos, her companion, protectively laid his gnarled hand on her shoulder, mistaking her awe for fear.  Her lover’s struggle to bring his frame to full height filled her with sadness.  Alas, any defense Carlos mustered against the stranger would have been useless.  Utterly useless.   READ THE STORY’S END.
