Hello from an old friend :)

Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3…is this thing still on? 🙂

It’s been awhile.  I slipped in quietly for fear of frying pans and other sweet tortures you may have devised for me.  They would be well deserved, I have been quiet for too long, and for that I do apologize. I meant to swing round and say hi much sooner than this, but it’s been a crazy year for me, as it has for some of you, I am sure.

First, thank you to all the wonderful people who left comments asking when I would be returning, and sharing their love for my stories here.  They always make me smile, and they always lift me up when I’m having a tough day.  Your support and faith in my writing was, and still is, the foundation of everything I am trying to do right now.

What is that, you ask? Holding the frying pan up high, waiting to see if you are going to throw it at me?  🙂   I’ve been writing, trying to build a world of my own that inspires readers like yourselves to the level of passion that we all shared for TB and SVM.

In August I launched  a new pen name, Cybill Cain.  So far, she writes steamy contemporary romance stories that center around a group called The Chimera Club.  The first story I released was called Poker Face, and it told the story of Brandon,  a rich man who agrees to play a one night high stakes erotic poker game while wagering his entire fortune on being able to keep his head in the game while he simultaneously seduces a virgin.   Camille is the woman he winds up with for a partner, and though she is young and dealing with a lot, she has her head in the game to win, and to win his heart as well.  In that story we meet the head of Chimera, a seemingly shady man called Thomas Meenan, who orchestrates the entire affair. It’s funny, and romantic, though the description of the events around the love story seem fantastic and surreal, and it received good reviews from those who were willing to take a chance on it.

My second release, Escape, was the story of a movie star who falls in love with a reclusive artist while staying at her B&B on his vacation.  Thomas Meenan and Chimera co-own the B&B and we get to see a different side of his character, in addition to a great love story between the leads, Max and Annie.  This was more of straightforward old fashioned romance with some mystery thrown in, and again it was pretty well received.

My third book, Haunted, was a second chance romance about a security guard who works for Thomas Meenan and Chimera, named Stacy, and his old high school sweetheart Janine.  There’s some excitement, some intrigue and some action, of all kinds in this one, and readers seemed to enjoy seeing them get their second chance at love.

My fourth book, Delicious, comes out on 11/30 and is a Christmas love story about the billionaire behind Chimera, Thomas Meenan’s boss, and the woman he sees across a crowded restaurant that takes his breath away.  Before he can meet her, he is in a car accident that leaves him scarred and angry, and he locks himself away on the other side of the world, until Meenan finds her and sends her to him, believing only she can save him.

The true function of Chimera is something we are learning about as each story is released, but each story is a stand alone steamy romance that features the couple and how they get together.

It’s not the world we all love here, but it is my world, and I wanted to personally invite you all to join me there! It’s still growing, there is a lot going on both in front of the camera, so to speak,  and behind it, that I would genuinely love for you to be a part of.

Come and stalk me, bring your frying pans and your flying monkeys, and don’t be afraid to use them.  I need your passion there just as much as I did here!

It’s a little early, I know, but I wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons, and hope this finds you all well and good. Know that you are never far from my thoughts, and that many times as I write I stop and think of what you all might say about whatever fool thing that just traveled from my mind to my keyboard, and it always makes me smile.

All my love,

    In case anyone is wondering, Cybil’s books are not supernatural but they are amazing. So, go ahead, take a chance.

    I’ve loved all the paranormal (SVM/TB) stuff you’ve ever written, and while I have no interest in contemporary romances, I wish you great success with your writing and publishing. Thanks for the stuff I do love though 🙂😘

      I understand exactly what you mean. When I first tried this I wanted to go right into vampires and things that go bump in the night. I found that I needed something new to distance me from the voices that weren’t mine. I was still writing Eric, and that was good, but it didn’t help me find that place where I was doing my own thing. Taking this chance to do something different with human stories is helping to create distance from the characters that absorbed me, but were not mine. I do plan to introduce Cybill’s supernatural side in the coming year, because it’s still a big part of who I am, and I hope that you will follow me, and be patient until I can find my own supernatural voice out there.

      Thank you! 🙂 I love that you are such an ardent supporter of my writing, in whatever form it may take. 🙂

        I’ll keep an eye out for more supernatural stories from your alter ego. You write whatever satisfies your inner muse and enjoy it while you do! I’m in awe of anyone who can put pen to paper (fingers to keyboard?) and come up with stories that keep us readers entertained.
        I just this morning re-read all your E/S “I like this better” one shots! 😋

    Do you think you will ever return to Eric? I’ve been out of touch and haven’t been updating in over a year, but I’m slowly getting my feet wet again and plan to begin reading all of your work again. I truly love it! I also just signed up to join your chimera Facebook, so I can keep up with what you’re working on. Best of luck, my friend!

      hello! 🙂 So good to hear from you!

      Yes, I will return to Eric. But, and I think you will understand this-all of you will understand this- in a sense, I have never left him.

      Yes, I have stories that are unfinished, but he is the…mold, yes, that’s a good way to put it, for every male character I create. I mean the inside stuff, the stuff that makes us all swoon about Eric Northman is in my writing now. They live in different times, have different jobs and names, but each is meant as a tribute for the man/character that inspired me to first sit down at a keyboard and try again. It was a lot harder than it sounds, but I am sure you get that part, too. 🙂

      WELCOME TO CHIMERA! I bet there are lots of things you will like about this new world. I’m releasing my fifth book in the Chimera series tomorrow, and I would love to hear what you think of these characters and this world. I’ll follow up with you in the Club.

      I’m very glad to hear you are writing again, too! I know how much you enjoy it! Talk soon idream3223
