Halloween fun with Tierney O'Malley


Cate: Please welcome Tierney to my special Halloween celebration. Tierney, please tell us a little bit about yourself.

Tierney: First, let me thank you, Cate, for the invitation. It’s great to be here and to be a part of your special Halloween celebration. Now, a little bit about my self. I’m published with eXtasy Books, Cobblestone Press, Museitup Publishing, and Silver Publishing. Writing Contemporay Erotic Romance is what is keeping me up all night. Recently though, I published my first Paranormal Romance, Wolf’s Soul. It is the first book of the Midnight Howl Series. I enjoyed writing this book as much as I enjoyed writing my contemporary romances.



Cate: Very cool. :) What do you love most about Halloween?

Tierney: I love Halloween because, like other special holidays, it brings us together. We would look for special pumpkins, help each other carve them, take pictures, and we often talk about the past. It is something that helps strengthen the bind that keeps us stronger as a family. And, yeah. I love the candies as well. :)



Cate: Well put. What frightens you the most?

Tierney: Horror movies. LOL.



Cate: I can't watch them! Tell us about your latest release, and where readers can find it online.

Tierney: Wolf’s Soul, A Midnight Howl Novel is my first paranormal erotic romance book. Unlike other shapeshifter books, the characters in Midnight Howl are not totally immortal. J The book is scorching hot and will not disappoint you at all.



Cate: Care to share a blurb or excerpt? (suitable for general audiences, please)

Tierney: My pleasure. Here is the excerpt for Wolf’s Soul.

Excerpt:

The look Callum gave her was enough for any woman to faint. He looked deadly, menacing, and angry. However, she wasn’t just another woman, was she? She had guts, and she was capable of killing bad shape-shifters.

Callum got off his bike. She stood and waited until he was toe to toe with her. She had to tip her head up a bit to see his eyes.

“Baby, you are seriously pissing me off.”

“It seems I always piss you off. I’m not afraid of you, or of your guns strapped on your...What kind of guns are those?” She pointed at his thighs.

“Beretta 92Fs.”

“And the two on your back?”

“Br├╝gger & Thomet MP-9 9x19mm.”

“And you have a sword, too? Good God! You’re a walking arsenal.”

“Mari, you shouldn’t be afraid of me.” He bent down to pick up the sword and sheathed it in the scabbard.

To Marisol’s surprise, he helped her strap it on her back again. When he was done, his large hand took her face and caressed it gently. “I’d never hurt you, but Atos would.”

“I’m not afraid of him, either.”

“You should. Fear is not a sign of cowardice or weakness. When you feel threatened…afraid of losing your life or someone special…that’s when courage, energy, and the will to live surfaces. Fear is good sometimes. It was fear that made me push my bike to the limit, to find you and bring you back to my cabin.”

“You can’t keep everyone safe, Callum. Do whatever it is you think you should to keep me safe, but stay away from me. I won’t be responsible if you become a Cancer.”

“I already told you, I don’t care if—”

“Yes, you do. I watched you talk to your brothers. They love you, Callum. And with me, you’ll be facing far more danger.”

“If they love me, they’ll have to accept you. I can have both you and my family.”

“I didn’t give you leave to have me.”

“Yes, you did. We mated. You’re mine.”

“We had sex. It was great, but that’s it. Let’s face it. You’re here because of my sword. I’m giving it to you freely. Take it.”

“I don’t want your sword. I want you. And we didn’t have sex. We made love, baby.”

“Whatever. Leave me alone, Callum.”

“Can’t.”

“Why?”

“Who knows? You talk to yourself, you can’t carry on a conversation without getting distracted, you don’t finish your sentences, you’re a brat, you punch people when you wake up, you can’t cook, you tried to feed me raw meat, and you hog the blankets. I’m beginning to think that my brothers are right.”

“About what?”

“The way I feel about you,” he said the words forcefully, but amusement showed in his eyes.

He was laughing at her. “Well, you made your feelings obvious to him, to all of them, didn’t you? I’m such a goof to like a shape-shifter.” She meant to keep the last remark to herself, but the words flew out of her mouth.

“You’re not a goof.”

“Whatever.”

Callum lifted her chin and licked her lips. “Open your mouth.” He put pressure on her lower lip until she was forced to open for him. His tongue swept inside.

His kiss melted Marisol’s anger. She wrapped her arms around his neck and returned his kisses with fervor.



Cate: Anything else you’d like to share?

Cate: Tierney has a giveaway! Yay!

Tierney: To help celebrate Halloween, I am giving away a pdf copy of Wolf’s Soul to one lucky commenter. Good luck everyone and happy Halloween!



Cate: Happy Halloween to you, Tierney! Thanks for being part of the fun.



Speaking of carving pumpkins, I'm amazed at how creative people are these days. Someone sent me this photo they'd taken. The poor thing must've had too many treats, lol.






Here's a video showing how you can carve some amazingly creative pumpkins:

 

Tierney, your book made me think of a song I love. Enjoy!

Welcome Tierney! Your cover makes me want to howl, lol

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cat, you're doing a whole month of Halloween features and you don't like horror films? That gave me a chuckle.

Cate Masters said...

I like some, Alex, but not the gory-blood-and-guts kind. Or the ones about possession. I'm selective about my horror, lol

LD Masterson said...

Oh heck, now I have to ask...what kind of horror movies do you like?

(Nice interview & excerpt.)

Cate Masters said...

Horror with a little humor mixed in, Linda - like Young Frankenstein, or Scary Movie, or even tongue-in-cheek horror. No chain saws, please, lol

Cate, thanks for the awesome invite. Glad to be your guest. Is it okay if I post the video on my blog. I love it!

Sure Tierney! Neither video is mine (shh, lol)
