Another contest coming…and a brag!
Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Yesterday, I spent the entire day flipping through research books looking for story ideas. Finally, I had to close the books and went for a swim. By the time I’d finished my laps, I had five really cool ideas—including a very strong premise for a YA fantasy novel.

Today, I’m going to plot something sexy and spooky. Mostly I’ll be working in worldbuilding notes. Today’s message from me is short.

Get ready!

I have two releases coming out at the end of this month and I have a great big contest that will begin as soon as my webmistress gives me what I need to get this ball rolling. I’ll need your help to get the word out!

If you’ve been wondering whether you would like Darkness Burning, here’s a review I found on AlienPlaces:

“…if you like a wonderful, sensual celebration of life and love, amazing storytelling, great plotting, powerful worldbuilding, and delightful writing, try [Delilah Devlin]!

Darkness Burning is a fantasy set in post-storm New Orleans, filled with vampires, demons, and other supernatural creatures. Don’t expect any Hollywood monsters in Delilah’s books, though. Her worlds are full of well-researched mythology, of legends based on ancient archetypes and myths that are the very foundation of our imagination.

Her characters are powerful and complex. No cardboard villains here, or white-hat heroes. Good deeds may have unintended repercussions, and sometimes, you must rely on your very enemy at a moment of need. In the best tradition of swashbuckling intrigues, Delilah Devlin creates a larger-than-life cast of characters with motivations that peel away like onion skins. And once you reach the core…

You’ll just have to read it. Because Delilah only promises more at each turn of the road.

And you will want more, because you will fall in love with her characters from the first page, and in lust at the second. Love, lust, need, irresistible attraction, and unstoppable fate mix and weave together to form the lifeblood of Darkness Burning. You can never fully trust your allies, and you must never close your ears to your enemy.

Only love is a certain beacon in darkness.

Or so you think.”
