Today we have my mate Mel Teshco up to give us a quick run down of her 2012 and to let us know what we have to look forward to from her in 2013. For those of you unfamiliar with Mel’s work, she writes smokin’ hot erotic romances – mostly for Ellora’s Cave. And she’s ace at it. So without further ado, let’s hear from Mel…
That things don’t always go to plan! And to brush off the bad stuff that happens and look ahead, never back. And learn from those mistakes =)
What were some of your highlights of 2012?
Seeing what started as an anthology come into fruition as a collection of short stories through Momentum. Phew! And meeting some fellow erotic writers at a retreat I organized at Montville was pretty cool too! Was good to hear from other writers about publishers etc.
What have you got planned for 2013, publishing or otherwise?
I mostly want to finish a single title that’s bugging me LOL! Other than that, write lots more of hopefully quality stories to build a fan base and earn a living from writing!
Any movies, books and suchlike being released in 2013 that you're really looking forward to?
I’ve been waiting for the latest Resident Evil to be released on DVD and can’t wait to see The Host, one of my all time fav books. Will be interesting to see how the whole thing will be interpreted on film.
Akeisha is on a mission to be chosen as part of a harem for the desert king, Judas. She’ll use her body to entice and beguile, do anything it takes to save the near-extinct larakytes, her shape-shifting silver panther tribe, from Judas’ human subjects, who are trying to eradicate them.
She never expects to succumb to the wild ecstasy in his arms, a pleasure that threatens to expose her inner cat even as it transcends anything she’s ever felt from one of her own kind.
Falling in love with a human enemy was never part of the plan, but maybe there’s more to Judas than meets the eye.
