Writing Christmas… Channeling The Nightmare Before Christmas while Writing with @MeganSlayer #iamwriting #christmas #inspiration #gayromance

As I write this post, I’ve got the movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas, playing in the background. I’m an odd duck. I like to listen to movies and television programs, in addition to music, while writing. It’s Christmas and Nightmare is one of my favorite cross-holiday movies. Hey, I like it during Halloween straight through to Christmas.

I like to have noise on while I write, as I said. I can honestly say the stuff I’m watching doesn’t show up in my work, necesarily, but what happens is I get an earworm instead. So I’m typing and all I can hear is the song, Making Christmas. It’s not even playing in the movie. But I was working on a Christmas story for next year, so I guess I’m making Christmas. I’m writing it, anyway.

Do you ever get earworms? What? Maybe we can commiserate.

In the meantime, here’s a little bit about my Christmas story for this year, Pick Me Up!

bookcover_resisting2bthe2brock2bstarWhat the rock god wants, he gets—including her.

Mason ‘Kross’ Khan left the rock and roll stage to connect with the son he never knew existed. He’s used to electrifying crowds and romancing the ladies. Money’s never been an object. He’s not looking for a relationship, but when he meets the saucy brunette at a club, he’s smitten. Danya’s perfect—curvy, smart and has no idea he’s a giant in the music industry. The one-night stand is just what he needs and he’s convinced he’ll never see Danya again—until he attends conference night at the local high school.

Danya Littrell isn’t just his one-night stand. She’s also his son’s art teacher and the woman who sparks his muse. Can he balance parenthood, a relationship with Danya and his music career? Or will his secrets be too much for the relationship to withstand?

Book Blast ~ THE SWEETEST OCTOBER by @MeganSlayer #contemporary #sweet #halloween #romance #meganslayer


I’m taking my book, The Sweetest October on tour. I’d love it if you’d come along. This is a departure for me, since it’s a sweet romance. Check it out! I will be awarding a prize pack featuring a necklace made by the author and a signed swag pack to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

Love and Halloween are an odd couple, but they can be the best means to heal a broken heart.

Allison Prince never planned on leaving her job with the Waite Gazette, but when the chance to discover her past comes along, she can’t say no. She’s determined to learn about her grandmother and make the advice in her column more relatable. With her rescue dog, Woofy, beside her, she sets out to learn as much as she can about Hallowsville, Ohio.

Erik Greene doesn’t believe in love and isn’t fond of Halloween. He’s convinced his broken heart won’t heal—until he meets Allison and visits the local animal shelter. He doesn’t want a journalist snooping around Hallowsville. But Allison isn’t all she seems and the pup at the shelter proves love is possible.

Can he open his heart to new opportunities and chase the love of his life? Or is he destined to be the Dandy Devil of Hallowsville all alone?

QUESTION: Of your published titles to date, which heroine is your favorite and why?

Megan Slayer said:
My favorite heroine has to be my goddess, Ariadne. I love characters that are survivors. I don’t know what you know about Ariadne, but this poor girl has been through a lot. First she helps a man and gets him to safety from not only her father, but a beast. In return, the man leaves her on an island. Nice, eh? Then she is spotted by another man, who saves her, but because he’s got another woman in his life…he ends up sending Ariadne to the underworld. Oh, and he’s got a drinking problem. So she’s been left twice and is in hell. But she’s not done.

That’s what I love about her. She doesn’t give up. She’s scared, but she’s not going down without a fight. She gets out of hell, but she has to run. Her ex isn’t done with her. I mean, how do you move forward from that? I don’t know how, but she does.

I love that she’s fearful—like many people would be—but she doesn’t quit. She runs to find freedom. She can hold her own and won’t back down from a fight. She’s got a sharp tongue and when faced with the man who could be her future…she’s not ready to jump right into bed with him.

So this woman who has run away from a man with a drinking problem who cast her to hell, who would she possibly run to? A creature of the night. A creature from hell. A vampire.

Does this stop her? I said, she’s tough and headstrong. She keeps going. She doesn’t let him direct her, but she also is savvy enough to know when she wants him. How cool is that? That’s why I love her. She’s a hurricane in a dress and can’t be stopped.

Ariadne’s Vampire (A Goddess After Dark novella)

[Paranormal Erotic Romance]AriadnesVampire

Ariadne defied her father for love, only to be abandoned. She married for what she thought was love, only to have Dionysus leave her for another woman. Even Aphrodite won’t smile on her because Aphrodite wants Dionysus. Ari can’t seem to win. What’s a goddess to do if she wants love?

Find a vampire.

Caden, a vampire and creature of the night, gave up on love long ago. Draining victims, sex and sleep are his orders for each evening…until he’s tasked with tracking Ariadne. He doesn’t expect the goddess to call to his wounded soul in ways he thought long since dead.

Can a vampire and goddess go the distance or will their happy ending die with the dawn?
