This is a little different than most of you are used to seeing. However, I write so many different things that sometimes a not-so-romantic manuscript squeaks out. I’m a lover of psychological horror. So when a contest (for fun) popped up on a private writing site that had to do with a head, I dove right in. I, of course, thought of a shrunken head. While the contest was cancelled do to drama, the person who sponsored it gave everyone a private critique. The piece was deemed too fast paced. I shelved it, like I do most of my shorts. Truthfully I was knee-deep in other projects.
Flash forward to this year. I’ve had turmoil with losing my editor with one publisher to seeing the same publisher go under, leaving me with pieces I’m still unable to do anything with. Then I find out my editor is with another publisher and they’re looking for a zombie piece. I remember Last Kiss. Way too short, I had to find a way to length it. With the help of the amazing people at Three Worlds Press, I found a way. Plus, I had the opportunity to make some cover art. Finding stock photos of shrunken heads isn’t an easy task. Lucky for me, I know art and have an awesome Wacom tablet. Stock photos? yeah, there’s a reason that I take over 2k of photos when I go on vacation.
One other difference too. I can’t very well use the name Kastil Eavenshade on a dark horror piece. So, without further ado, I give you the cover art for Last Kiss. Publishing details to come later. :)
Cesar has yearned for a better life away from the mines. When a mysterious man named Arturo blows through town flicking a gold coin along his knuckles, Cesar jumps at the chance for fortune. Deep in the woods is a prize to make all his dreams come true. A shrunken head of legends long forgotten in the modern world. With one last kiss, immortality could be his.
;) Want some? ;)
Bad Boys Wanted
An Erotic Romance Anthologyby Various Authors
Release Date: October 21, 2015
Keywords: Erotic, Romance, BDSM, Bondage, Alpha Males, Domination / Submission, Sex ToysDescription: When they’re bad, they’re oh so good. This collection of six steamy erotic tales featuring the best of the bad boys is sure to leave you wanting more.
If it isn’t obvious by now, I love writing naughty twists on fairy tales. This one is far from the last I have. Second in the Beowulf Hollow series, Rumpled Between the Sheets is loosely based on Rumpelstiltzkin. Some of the classic elements are there yet in different forms. The ugliness, the power struggle, and of course a deep secret that’s uncovered. There might be a spinning wheel in there somewhere … and spanking. It’s naughty, after all.
I said it in the dedication and I can’t day it enough. Thanks to all who support me. You are my inspiration.

Some want to find love at all costs
Some believe there is a cost to find love
When Mary Becken’s mother passes away, she takes over her exclusive tailoring business. Not satisfied with the fabrics available, she unearths her mother’s loom and creates a new textile by weaving thin strands of gold. Soon her small mountain town of Beowulf Hollow is swarming with new customers and invitations come pouring in for New York Press Week.
Benjamin Elstiltzkin is downright ruthless when it comes to his fashion business, and no small town upstart is going to dethrone him as king of the fashion world. When he hatches a plan to force Miss Becken to work for him exclusively, the one thing he doesn’t expect is the temptation she poses to his never-ending bachelorhood.
With a deadline looming to gather his collection, Benjamin might have met his match in more ways than one.
