Nothing in the World is So Certain as Change

Well, I heard from my editor the other day. Seems they've decided to change the title of my upcoming book from Before Sunrise to DESIRE AFTER DARK. My editor thinks it sounds sexier and I have to agree. I did like Before Sunrise, though. It kind of went with the previous book's title, After Sunrise. Oh, well. One thing I'm sure of, this is one of my best books, no matter what they call it!

The back cover copy says:
"Sexy vampires, dangerous devotion, unparalleled romance—no one does desire after dark like bestselling author Amanda Ashley. Now, in her enthralling new novel, she explores a passion as smoldering as it is risky...

Vicki Cavendish knows she should be careful. After all, there’s a killer loose in town—one who drains women of blood, women with red hair and green eyes just like her. She knows she should tell police about the dark, gorgeous man who comes into the diner every night, the one who makes her feel a longing she’s never felt before. The last thing she should do is invite the beautiful stranger into her house...

Cursed to an eternity of darkness, Antonio Battista has wandered the earth, satisfying his hunger with countless women, letting none find a place in his heart. But Victoria Cavendish is different. Finally, he has found a woman to love, a woman who accepts him for what he is—a woman who wants him as much as he wants her...which is why he should leave. But Antonio is a vampire, not a saint. What is his, he’ll fight to keep and protect. And Victoria Cavendish needs protecting...from the remorseless enemy who would make her his prey...and from Antonio’s own uncontrollable hunger... "

At last, I have a DVD of Phantom of the Opera. Am I the only one who thinks they could have made his face uglier? I mean, granted, he was kind of scary but not really horribly disgustingly grotesque.

14 days until STAR WARS. I bought the book and read the end. As promised, this one is definitely dark in tone.

May the Force be With You....Always.
