New Release! Other Side of Night: Bastian & Riley
Today, we have a visit from authors S.L. Armstrong & K. Piet from Storm Moon Press! Not only do these ladies have several books to their credit, but they’re also the owners of Storm Moon Press, a small, independent publisher focusing on GLBT erotica and erotic romance. Welcome!
Thank you for having us today at Sugarbeat’s Books! S.L. Armstrong and I (K. Piet) are thrilled to be here to announce the release of our latest book: Other Side of Night: Bastian & Riley! This is the first book in our Other Side of Night series, which is set in an alternate modern reality in which vampires and their ghoul companions exist alongside humans. This story revolves around Bastian, a newly turned vampire, and his struggle to navigate both the growing changes involved in becoming a vampire and the strain it puts on his budding relationship with fellow college student, Riley. Though they try to remain in the lives they have built for themselves at college, they soon find that there’s a whole other world in the shadows just waiting to consume them both.
While this book is focused on Bastian and Riley’s relationship (making it a gay erotic romance novella), the Other Side of Night series is planned to be very diverse, including both mainstream heterosexual and GLBT erotic romance stories. S.L. and I thought it important to show a broad range of relationships set in this paranormal world we’ve created, so you can expect everything from traditional romance tropes to power struggles to polyamorous bisexuality. This series will give you a taste of everything we love about vampire fiction with our own twists and turns along the way, all served with our usual erotic flair!
We’ll leave you with the blurb and cover art! Look for us in another month, when we’ll be stopping by for Storm Moon Press’ annual blog tour! Until then, enjoy the Other Side of Night!
Vampires walk among us. For centuries, they have adapted, learning to pass undetected in our world. They no longer fear the day, only the sting of direct sunlight. They are students, bankers, lawyers, and even actors. But when the sun goes down, they are all united by their eternal thirst. We do not see them from our safe and comfortable side of the night. But sometimes, one of us is drawn away from the light and we cross into their world. Into the other side of night.
Sebastian Rossi’s second year at the University of Tennessee began much differently than his first. He rushes to and from his classes, covered head to toe in thick clothing. Parties are a thing of the past, and dating hasn’t been high on his list of priorities. No, high on his needs is blood. Lots of it. Adjusting to the changes no one even told him would happen following one great night of partying and sex has been hell for Bastian, but he’s managing.
Riley Lynch’s dream is to be a veterinarian. He works hard to pay his tuition, reads in every spare moment, and tries to forget the nightmare of his sophomore year. Summer has washed away all the bad, leaving him refreshed and eager for his junior year at UT. Life is finally looking up for him, and he has no intention of sliding back down into the depression that had consumed him during his last relationship.
A chance meeting brings their two worlds into alignment and passion sparks between them. When Riley learns of the changes Bastian is going through, he has a choice to make: walk away or embrace the night.
