#CoverReveal and Getting Ready for #RomCon2014 #amwriting

I’m so excited to show off the cover for Sweet, Sultry and Oh So Taboo. Sassy Vixen Publishing decided to put out the first six chapters as a sneak peek for the readers at RomCon 2014. I know you’ve all read them here on my blog, but they’ve been edited and now PUBLISHED in this book along with two novellas by my alter egos, Tammy Dennings Maggy and Lia Michaels.



At the book signing on Friday June 20th, we’ll have copies of this collection as well as a few other Sassy Vixen Publishing books available for purchase. During the convention, multiple copies of this one and others will be given away for prizes and in gift baskets. “We” will be involved in the Erotic Authors Panel (Tammy Dennings Maggy…well, me since we are one and the same! LOL), Karaoke and Dance with the Decades with the 70’s games Hungry Hungry Hippos and Kerplunk, Get Crafty with the Authors at the sewing table demonstrating how to make a cool quilted book cover, and running the Naughty Bingo during the Chocolate Mangasm. We’ll have all sorts of candies, swag and baskets for prizes at each event. 



Another thing we’ve put together is a large basket for the Breast Cancer Awareness/Research raffle. In it will be print copies of all our books, swag and a hand made knitted prayer shawl along with a decorated framed poem from Follow Me: Poetry from the Heart and Soul by Tammy Dennings Maggy.

Another framed poem will be given away during the Get Crafty with the Authors event.






On July 1st, the special editions released at RomCon will be made available on all retail outlets in both print and eBook formats. I hope you join me in making their releases extra special and get them to the top of the charts!

See you in two weeks!

#ThursdayThirteen: @HouseofTaboo Author Lia Michaels Shares A Taste of Forbidden Destiny #eroticromance #LGBT #shifters

Welcome to Through Stephanie’s Eyes. Today you’re in for a special treat. My alter ego, Lia Michaels has released her first LGBT erotic paranormal romance. This one is a short story companion meant to wet your appetite for some sexy eagle shifters. To top it all off, these men are in the Army…whew!  I mean, you can’t go wrong with sexy men in uniform.

Forbidden Destiny introduces you to Abraham and Ethan. These two star crossed lovers search for each other through their dreams where they can shift into eagles and soar high up in the clouds together. Have you all seen the National Geographic videos of the courting ritual of raptors like the bald eagle? Well, go look for some and you’ll end up breathless watching them just like I did. It’s an amazing sight.  

But I digress…

Let’s get back to the task at hand and share the blurb from Lia’s short story.


Ethan Quaderer is the Great Thunderbird, the creature of Native American legend.  From childhood, Ethan soared high across the land, as one with the majestic bald eagles—only larger and more powerful. Great Thunderbird has one mission, to save the Native American people. But first, he must find his Chosen, his soul mate.

Abraham Tuttle grew up in a household where being different was unacceptable. Forbidden.  He hid his true nature, a Two Spirit—not male or female, but both.  For many Native American tribes, being Two Spirit is a blessing, one to be honored and revered. Not so for Abraham.

Through the Thunderbird dreams each finds the happiness they long for. One dreams of the Great Warrior who’d someday rescue him. The other dreams of the one he’s searched for through many lifetimes.


Dreams turn into reality when both men come face to face in the real world. Can Abraham find it within himself to let go of his past and embrace his future with Ethan, or will his doubts and fears of who and what he really is cause him to lose the only one who could ever complete him heart and soul?

Got your attention now, don’t we? 😉  Here’s the first thirteen sentences. It’s from the opening dream sequence through Abraham’s eyes.

“Come to me, Abe. Together we’ll save our people.”

Abraham scanned the shoreline for the source of the deep, haunting voice. He walked up and down the trails in the woods surrounding the lake and so far he turned up nothing. That is, nothing but the bald eagles soaring high in the sky. 

As he watched the aerial display, one of the largest birds of the group broke away from the trio circling overhead. Abraham’s eyes followed the majestic creature through every dive and swoop back up toward the treetops. His breath caught in his chest each time the free fall began. “So beautiful.”

“Join me now, my Chosen. Together the Thunderbirds will bring peace and hope to all our people.”


Abraham’s heart raced and goose bumps immediately covered his bare arms.


Sorry folks. That’s all you get for now. If you want to read more of the story, you can get your very own copy today from SmashwordsAll Romance ebooks and Amazon.   I’ve already got my copy in my hot little hands. What’s taking you so long? Go on. If you’re over 18 years old and enjoy M/M erotic paranormal romances, this one’s for you.

About the Author

Lia Michaels is the alter ego of bestselling poet and erotic romance author Tammy Dennings Maggy. With so many characters clamoring for their stories to be told, the job became a bit overwhelming for one sassy vixen to handle. Lia “volunteered” to explore the world of M/M erotic romance as well as menage. Tammy will still tell the M/F and F/F stories but don’t be surprised if the two of them collaborate from time to time. With Lia, very few topics will be taboo so look for more fantasy and paranormal tales from her. She’ll leave the more contemporary stuff to Tammy but still encourage her to push the limits!

Until next time
~Steph
