Usually when I think of romance I think of extravagant gestures: a huge bouquet, front row seats at a concert, a midnight cruise down the Seine through Paris, a suite at... well a girl can dream.
Actually when I think of romance I really think of holding hands, laughing together, dinner at some scruffy, undiscovered but wonderful restaurant, a warm hug, kisses and love.

Er... I mean it's now available on Amazon.
No more pre-order, it's alive! There I go again. I admit it, I'm excited.
Let me be a little clearer. My newest novel, Shapeshifter Prophecy, the second novel in the Cancordian Adventure series is now available for immediate download on Amazon.
The two main characters, Ja'Nil and Ee'Rick, can't seem to avoid trouble and they can't seem to stay away from each other.
There are werewolves, a beautiful mutant, a dangerous queen, sibling rivalry, and families pulling together when danger threatens. There is also the possibility of romance.
If you click on the book cover it will take you right to Amazon where you can read a sample.
By the way, like all writers I like reviews: good, bad or indifferent, I appreciate them. I like to know what my readers think about the work.
Enjoy life, read a book.
One of the great things about being a writer is that you get to meet a lot of other writers.
Christopher Bernard and I have been friends for more than twenty years. We argue, we bitch, we talk into the night, encourage each other and try to be tactful when the other acts the fool. Most of all we admire each other.
So let me brag a little about my friend Chris. He's a fantastic writer and it's not just his friends who think so. The following is quote from one of the reviews of his collection of short stories,
In The American Night.
"Christopher Bernard is one of the most unique voices in American literature today. His latest, the short story collection In the American Night, is a sampler of what makes Bernard a fascinating literary figure."
The entire review can be seen at http://www.cclapcenter.com/2014/09/book_review_in_the_american_ni.html
Also, just click on the picture of his book to learn more about Chris and his work.
Finally! At least that's how I feel. If I had a genie who granted wishes I would ask to be able to write faster.
Shapeshifter Prophecy is the further adventures of Ja'Nil and Ee'Rick. The following is a quick blurb:
For Ja'Nil of the Fisherfolk, life is almost perfect. Her village is safe, the new Queen is her friend, and Ee'Rick, the handsome blond warrior wants her as his woman.
Into this almost paradise slithers Ma'Sk, sowing fear and so much hatred that not only is Ja'Nil's village in danger, but the entire country.
Both Ee'Rick and Ja'Nil have a plan to defeat Ma'Sk, the trouble is their plans are in direct opposition to each other. If one wins the other could die. Just how tight is their new-found bond?
This ebook is available for pre-order on Amazon:
One of the things I like about book series is that the characters become so real and their lives so engrossing. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think about the book...and the series.
