New Interview!

Check out my interview with Tammy from Fallen Angel Reviews!

Find out how I got started in writing, and what inspires me!

Speaking of inspiration... I always talk about how I get my ideas from all kinds of strange places. Well, yesterday afternoon, I was watching an old BBC movie called "Flirting," when I got an idea for a pub and gathering place in my upcoming dark fantasy project, CITY OF NIGHT.

Just a five second shot of a building in the movie opened up a whole new avenue of possibility for the story.

So remember -- always keep your imagination open, and you can find bits and pieces of stories anywhere, anytime!

AWESOME new cover art for THE VEIL!

Dun dun-dun DUNNNN! Ladies and gentlemen, the NEW cover for THE VEIL v2.0, coming in October from Cobblestone Press!

Isn't it beautiful? I'm so happy with it -- it portrays the story and the tone of the book PERFECTLY, and I think it's truly compelling. It'll go a long way toward attracting readers who might otherwise have avoided it, thinking it was "just" romance. It IS romance, but it's Dark Fantasy as well.

I have to say, seeing this has gone a LONG way toward inspiring me in my ongoing work on the sequel, OTHERWORLD. I'm about halfway through the first draft now! It's a LOT darker, and a LOT spicier than the original.

I think readers are going to be really pleased with both. I know I am! Stay tuned for more about THE VEIL, OTHERWORLD, and other projects!

And don't miss SWORD OF REGRET -- two dark, erotic short vampire stories that explore what can happen when vampires and humans, who hunt one another in hunger and hatred, start to see things from the other's point of view. A FREYA'S BOWER BESTSELLER!

Check it out now!

New Review! Sort of...

The Veil by H.A. Fowler

Woohoo! See what you can find when you Google yourself? :)

I assume this came out around the time that Inara was making their announcement about closing, so it never came out.

Still a nice one to see though!

SWORD OF REGRET and The Bloodthirstymuses Library!

is a Freya's Bower BESTSELLER!


I've FINALLY got some work done on the Bloodthirsty Muses' DARK LIBRARY. It's going to be an EXTENSIVE bibliography of vampire and other horror fiction... eventually. Check out what I've got so far. If you click the links and buy from Amazon, I get a little kickback. ;)

If you have any vampire, shapeshifter, horror, or dark fantasy recommendations, please email them to me at heather @! And check back often, as I'll keep adding books, links, and discussions.

I've also applied to be an affiliate for -- a great source for out of print books!
