eurydice james: pepperlandgirl4

New release and contest

What a crazy week this has been! On the plus side, pepperlandgirl4 and I finished all our edits for Chasing Silver, as well as wrote out our proposals for the subsequent books we want to write for them. My other writing has slowed dramatically, though, hopefully that will pick up again tomorrow when she goes home.

Speaking of writing, I have a new release out today!

The 10k short story I wrote for Phaze's Snuggler line, The Ice Butterfly, is now out and available.

Ten years ago, a searing affair nearly derailed Tomas Dalmau’s budding career. Now Rana, the winter elemental who robbed him of more than his innocence, has struck again.

As a sentinel, charged with keeping order in the paranormal world, Tomas knows his witchcraft can’t touch Rana. He asks for the case anyway. Why? Because he has a weapon the other sentinels don’t have. And he is bound and determined to take back what she stripped away the first time they met.

The only problem is…desire doesn’t die. No matter how cynical you are.


I have to tell you, I love Tomas, and I'm incredibly proud of this story. It's far more erotica than romance, too, which lends it a different air than some of my other work. But I love it so much, Tomas is slated to have his own story told, a full-length work that is likely going to be far more plot than romance. I'm going to be pursuing print with that one. I think he deserves it.

To celebrate The Ice Butterfly's release, I'm having a contest. Everybody who buys a copy before December 31 will be entered to win either a copy from my backlist (signed if you choose a print book) or a $10 Amazon gift certificate. Three winners will be chosen.

All you have to do to enter is buy the book. To let me know you've done that, e-mail me at vivien_dean@yahoo.com with either a copy of your sales receipt, or the answer to the following question: In what city did Tomas first meet Rana? (It's in the very first part of the story.) I'll announce the winners on January 1. And did I mention it's only $2? :)

Fic: From Heaven Above to Earth I Come, ch. 1

Well, with our edits done, pepperlandgirl4 and I have decided to indulge in Christmas fic. Porny, happy Christmas fic. But what started out as something to merely entertain us has evolved into 2 stories, each 3 chapters long. The first of these is Wes/Faith, and the second will be Spike/Buffy, and we're going to post this over the next week or so (outside of my other updates).

So that being said...here's chapter 1 of the first fic.

TITLE: From Heaven Above to Earth I Come
AUTHORS: Eurydice & Pepperlandgirl
RATING: NC17
SETTING: 6 months post-NFA
PAIRING: Wes/Faith
DISCLAIMER: Not ours, which is a shame because usually we're nicer to them than Joss was.
