Tuesday Teaser: Stone Solitude by A C Warneke

For today's Tuesday Teaser, I thought I would feature a book that showcases an obsession of mine - gargoyles. Yes, you heard right, gargoyles. Those gruesome stone creatures that sit on top of gothic cathedrals and castles. Why do I find them so sexy, you ask? For that, I blame Danielle Monsch. After reading her Stone Guardian, I became completely obsessed with them and started reading every gargoyle book I could get my hands on. Some are better than others. I'm rather excited about this one. And oh goody! Reading the blurb of this one tells me she has more gargoyle books, plus, she's working on book two of this series too!! Glom! Glom! Glom!

A cursed stone Beast

Isolated and alone, without family or fortune, Roman Nosuntres is a gargoyle forgotten by the world. He just wants to get back what once was lost and his only hope of breaking the curse that binds him lies in the unconditional surrender of an innocent. He just never anticipated someone like Daisy, who slowly brings color into his black and white world.

An innocent & beguiling Beauty

Born into a life of love and privilege, surrounded by friends and family, Daisy Tremain doesn’t quite fit in. She’s a wolf who can’t shift and a Siren afraid to sing. Not broken or damaged, just a little lost, Daisy’s life finally starts to make sense when she meets the mysterious Roman. Imperfect apart, they are perfect together.

As long as they don't piss off too many gods.

STONE SOLITUDE is a full length novel at 107+K words. It can be read as a standalone and there is no cliffhanger but if you're interested in other gargoyles, there is the Stone Passions Trilogy (Stone Lover, Stone Romance, & Stone Destiny.) Siren Song is the story of Daisy's parents. Not recommended for anyone younger than 18 due to sexual situations and strong language.

About the author
Like most writers, I spend most of my time telling myself stories and occasionally writing them down when they get too loud to remain in my head. The characters are also very demanding, wanting to go out into the world to be discovered by millions of adoring readers, though they are most satisfied with having only a few readers that truly love them. From the gargoyles that sit on top of the roofs to the Siren who lures her wolf astray to the Aradians and Apocritae to those who battle evil, the characters are everything.

Instead of going through the traditional gatekeepers of the publishing world I have leapt over the walls with the help of digital catapults (starting with kindle direct and createspace) and messenger e-birds (goodreads, facebook, twitter, RNC, etc), going directly to the public. It has been a year and while my strong hold is small it grows larger every day as I connect with other rebels throughout the lands and the readers who support our work. It is a glorious day to be a writer.

When it comes to the actual writing I have discovered that every single one of my books likes to be created in a different way, which makes establishing an environment that is most conducive to my writing is not likely, though it occasionally involves chocolate covered raisins, music, minesweeper, occasionally Mahjong, lots of solitaire, notebooks and scraps of paper, doodling and day dreaming, and fruity, sugar-free bubble gum, not necessarily in that order and not always at the same time.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the love and support of my very loving and very tolerant family: my husband who encourages me to keep writing even when I act a little insane in regards to the worlds in my head, and my three kids who help out so much when I get lost in those same, darn worlds. They politely listen as I go on and on about my characters' motivations and back stories, their connections within the worlds created and how they fight to gain control of their destinies. But I am a cruel writer and make them earn their happy endings.

Since I am also a Romantic at heart, they are all happy endings.
