“Back Home Again” Writing Diva’s Anthology
Crossroads, Indiana is preparing to celebrate their final Memorial Day Strawberry Festival before they are forced to relocate their small town due to weird sinkholes, rumors of aliens, and other strange goings-on. But even as bizarre events upend the town’s future, love and hope blossom for several who have called this place Home.
This multi-genre anthology of short stories interprets this theme in a humorous, heart-warming, edge-of-your seat, sexy, uplifting variety of ways; all proceeds will be donated to a local animal shelter. Only available in 2021, before the stories are released back to the authors.
My contribution to the anthology is a sexy alien cat-shifter reverse harem:

Dracula was an upstart nobody from an alien race of bloodsuckers… Kaz just met the planet’s King.

She struggles against the attacks of a bloodthirsty monster and her growing attraction to the sexy and mysterious vampire king. Amidst murdered palace staff, political power struggles, and the king’s blood-searing seduction, has Kaz bitten off too much? Will she return to the unhappy safety of her failed life or stick her neck out and embrace a future with the lusty king who thirsts for her?
Away from his homeworld for far too long, King Rune Lahdunae’s political influence has weakened and his vision for his people is now a relic from a bygone era. He struggles to regain his royal standing as monarch, resurrect his race’s proud heritage, and keep his randy fangs off his beautiful guest. Yet Kazandra’s spirit and humor arouses a hunger in him more primal than the need for her life-giving blood. Can he entice her to remain as his honored guest… and possibly his wife? And can he thwart the relentless killer who is drinking his people dry before Kazandra becomes the next victim?
