Welcome to our a special party on the Center Stage! I’m Tony, co-owner and head bartender here at Taboo. Those of you who’re regulars may have already figured out Lia and I are more than just partners here at the club. We are partners in real life too.
She works really hard to keep Taboo running, supporting other authors and writing her own stuff. She’s always busy and willing to drop everything for a friend and put her own work on the back burner.
That’s why I’ve decided to throw this party for her to celebrate the upcoming release of her very first short story. Lia doesn’t like to toot her own horn—unless it’s about Taboo. Her writing she keeps quiet and under wraps.
No more. It’s her time to shine. That’s why you’re all here today to join in the celebration to reveal the cover of Forbidden Destiny.
The short story will be available on Friday September 6th…next week! You’ll be able to find it at the usual outlets: ARe, Amazon and Smashwords. Lia’s publisher, Sassy Vixen Publishing is excited to finally have one of the Luscious one’s stories ready for the world.
Here’s a bit about the story…
Ethan Quaderer is the Great Thunderbird, the creature of Native American legend. He grew up knowing exactly who and what he was thanks to his grandfather. At a very young age, Ethan could merge with the bald eagles and soar with them high across the land. Eventually he would learn to shift completely from human to one of them…only larger and more powerful. His destiny as the Great Thunderbird was to find his soul mate and together they would save their people.
Abraham Tuttle didn’t grow up in a household where being different was acceptable. For years he hid the fact he was “berach” or Two Spirit. For many Native American tribes, being Two Spirit is considered a blessing. It’s actually a third gender classification, not male or female, but both. Two Spirits are often honored and revered, considered to be highly spiritual and often take on leadership roles within their tribes as healers.
Where Ethan’s spirituality and Two Spirit nature were embraced by his family, Abraham learned early on his would be shunned by his family and many others within his tribe. He kept his true self hidden and did his best to fit in, all the while dreaming of the Great Warrior who would someday rescue him from all of it. He dreamed of courting eagles night after night. Their majestic free fall toward the ground took his breath away each and every time. It was in those dreams the Warrior would come to him as the Great Thunderbird and claim him as his mate.
And now for our toast. I’ve made up a pitcher just for the two of us. The servers are coming around with drinks for everyone. As soon as you have them, please raise your glasses and join me in a toast to our fearless leader who turns being naughty into an art form.
Congratulations to my one and only, my heart and soul, my always and forever and my Chosen. Lia, here’s to making all your dreams come true! Salute!
Until next time
