Now in Paperback and Audiobook: The Electric Desert Nights Series by Jewel Quinlan (@JewelQuinlan)

Humans aren’t the only ones drawn to music festivals, especially ones that run from dusk to dawn for three nights straight…

Entranced

When vampire Wade is told by a psychic that he’s going to meet his soulmate at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, he thinks it’s a load of crap. But his curiosity won’t stop plaguing him. Could a vampire really have a soulmate?

Kandi

Mya hopes the music festival will take her mind off the gnawing hunger that has plagued her for months. Even though she eats plenty of food, she’s become dangerously thin. When cute stranger Somer kisses her, not only does she feel an enticing heat curl within her but something else that could be the key to making her well.

The Drop

It’s the last night of the festival, and Tyler is less than thrilled. Both his friends have met love interests, and they arrange for everyone to hang out together, which means Tyler gets stuck with the other third wheel, a girl named Scarlett. She’s sweet and has girl-next-door good looks. But when she touches him, his mind is filled with thoughts and memories that aren’t his own.

Interview With the Author

What is the Electric Desert Nights new series about?

Electric Desert Night is a series of three short stories all set at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. It is a three-night event where DJs from around the world come to play various styles of electronic dance music, or EDM. Being a lover of EDM myself, I had the pleasure of attending the carnival this year and was amazed at how huge the venue was. There were seven stages total and all of them were packed with people! Each night runs from dusk till dawn (yes, I did see the sun come up a couple of times). Anyway, while I was there I couldn’t help thinking what an ideal place it would be for paranormal creatures to come and feed on humans. And, bam! That was how the series was born. You never know when inspiration will strike, lol.

In each book of the series a paranormal being is brought together with a human, and each experience is a discovery of an underlying connection between them.

Who was your favorite character to write?

Somer, the incubus, was my favorite. He’s just kind of a cheeky, comical, fun-loving incubus. He seemed to speak all on his own in my head. I myself am the opposite of him so it was interesting how his description and dialogue popped up out of nowhere from the very beginning.

Your series includes a vampire, an incubus, and a ghost. Why have several paranormal creatures?

I know most authors stick to one at a time. But I find it hard to believe that only one paranormal creature can exist in the world. If vampires can exist, why not the others? I don’t think having a ghost was too much of a stretch. Even in our world today there is a ton of evidence to support the existence of ghosts. I guess I just don’t like limitations. I actually loved the way the three of them played off of each other and had their own unique stories to tell.

Why write short stories? Why not full length novels?

I write all lengths of books. It’s really up to the story to let me know how long it wants to be. I am at its mercy, lol. But I think short stories are great for lunchtime breaks or waiting rooms or other times when you just need some quick entertainment. At minimum, I hope my stories provide readers a break (from whatever they need a break from) and let them experience something they never actually would in real life.

Wow, it’s been a super-busy week here… but an exciting one, too.

First of all, you’ve probably already noticed that my website has been given a sexy new lick of paint – do you like it? I’ve also got matching Facebook and Twitter banners, as well as an email footer. I’m loving it! I just thought it was time to have a new look, and I’m really happy with the result.

Also, since I’m now into double figures with my audiobooks, I thought it’d be a good idea to make it easier for listeners to find them. Therefore I’ve created a new page listing all the audiobooks I currently have available, plus a lovely new button in the site’s sidebar which takes you to that page. To celebrate, I’m running a giveaway – five lucky winners can get their hands on one of my audiobooks – just use the Rafflecopter below to enter!

Aural Pleasure, Anyone? #audiobooks #audible

Hi folks,

As some of you may already know, I’ve been working hard to get as many of my books into audiobook format as possible. It’s not a quick, easy or simple process, hence it’s taking quite a while. But it is fun, and I’m delighted that it’s given me the opportunity to work with some really amazing people that I might not have met otherwise. It’s also giving readers more options for how they receive their books, which I think is really important.

Anyway, in the past month, two more books have been added to the list of those available in audio format. Love Through a Lens, my M/F May to December erotic romance, and A Taste of London, my M/F erotic story, which is also book one in the World of Sin series. I’m working with the same fab narrator to get the other two books into audio format, too, and I’m hoping to find time in my writing schedule to pen some new stories in the series, too!

So, for those of you that enjoy aural pleasure, here’s the information and links you need:

Love Through a Lens Audiobook

Celine Patterson is a recent graduate eager to begin her career as a camerawoman—with the fashion world and all its glitz and glamour calling to her. Things aren’t that simple, however, and she’s forced to take a job making a documentary in the Peak District countryside with a mid-list British actor.

In spite of her initial disappointment—not only is the job not what she wanted, the pay is appalling, too—Celine warms to the project. The actor she’s working with, Edward Robson, is kind, considerate, funny and a consummate professional. She realizes she can learn a great deal from him, and resolves to do so.

As the days of the shoot pass by, Celine grows increasingly fond of Edward, and that fondness quickly goes beyond the platonic. Convinced her crush is completely one-sided—he’s over three decades her senior, for starters—she tries hard to ignore it, hoping the feelings will go away.

But then something happens to change Celine’s opinion, and flip her world upside-down. How will she react? And can she emerge from this project with both her career and her heart intact?

A Taste of London Audiobook

Ryan Stonebridge and his friend Kristian Hurst are heading off on the trip of a lifetime. They’re spending their gap year traveling the world and expect lots of sun, sights and sex. The guys have a couple of days in the English capital before catching the Eurostar to Paris. Unfortunately, a family emergency means that Kristian has to head back home for a while, leaving Ryan to continue the trip alone.

Luckily for Ryan, he’s an attractive guy and there is no shortage of gorgeous women available to help take his mind off Kristian’s family drama.

Desert Heat & Native Tongue Now Available in Audio Format! #gay #romance #audiobook

Hi everyone,

I’m delighted to announce that Desert Heat & Native Tongue are now also available in audiobook format, narrated by the amazing Joel Leslie! This is a new thing for me, so I’m really excited to see how it goes. I actually had a discussion over the weekend with someone about audiobooks, who pointed out that as well as being great for people when they’re commuting, they’re good for the visually impaired and people with dyslexia. I admit I hadn’t even thought of that side of things before, so I’m pleased to be potentially widening my market in this way. I’m in talks with various narrators to get more of my books made available in audio. It’s quite a long process, but do watch this space!

Desert Heat:

Their love is forbidden by rules, religion and risk. Yet still they can’t resist.

Captain Hugh Wilkes is on his last tour of duty in Afghanistan. The British Army is withdrawing, and Wilkes expects his posting to be event-free. That is, until he meets his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, who awakens desires in Wilkes that he’d almost forgotten about, and that won’t be ignored.

Native Tongue:

They may be back on British soil, but the battle isn’t over.

When Captain Hugh Wilkes fell for his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, he always knew things would never be easy. After months of complete secrecy, their return to England should have spelt an end to the sneaking around and the insane risks. But it seems there are many obstacles for them to overcome before they can truly be happy together. Can they get past those obstacles, or is this one battle too many for their fledgling relationship?
