Like Fathers, Like Son Cover

Xan Dawson is used to getting what he wants, and what he desperately wants right now is to attend the party of the year. Unfortunately, that party will be filled with drugs and alcohol and all sorts of other things that no sixteen-year-old should be doing. When his vampire fathers tell him no—a word he doesn’t hear from them very often—he temporarily succumbs to his inner brat and reacts in a way that he can never take back. The best he can hope for is that he will be forgiven.

This is a Harborview Immortals prequel short story. It contains references to Family Matters, as well as possible nods to the other Extra stories in this series.

Contains mild adult content.

Short Story Announcement: Like Fathers, Like Son

Xan Dawson is used to getting what he wants, and what he desperately wants right now is to attend the party of the year. Unfortunately, that party will be filled with drugs and alcohol and all sorts of other things that no sixteen-year-old should be doing. When his vampire fathers tell him no—a word he doesn’t hear from them very often—he temporarily succumbs to his inner brat and reacts in a way that he can never take back. The best he can hope for is that he will be forgiven.


I originally intended to save this for Father’s Day, but events in this story are briefly mentioned in #2 so I decided to publish it beforehand. Instead, I’ll save the erotic shorts for later. (Erotic short stories, because erotic shorts make me think about crotchless booty shorts or something like that, lol.)

Like Fathers, Like Son will be available to download and read online on January 31.

Small Packages DL and Story Links

Updated from original post on 12/18:

Small Packages Cover

Ah, Christmas Eve. For Jacob, it’s a time for enjoying the presence of his family and friends, making sure that Dominic doesn’t kill his twin brother, and silently hoping that his fourteen-year-old son doesn’t get a thousand tattoos when he grows up because apparently that’s the plan. But hey, at least there are gifts.

Gift-giving isn’t easy when two vampires with a lot of centuries between them have just about everything they could ever possibly need or want. But this year, Jacob has found the perfect gift for Dominic, one that will change both their lives, and he can’t wait to give it to him.

This is a Harborview Immortals prequel short story. While it contains references to Family Matters, no prior knowledge of the book is required.

Contains explicit content.

The Downloads & Story Links page has also been updated.

Okay, that’s it for this year but I’m already working on Book 2 plus a few other Extra stories, one of which I will probably publish in January if time is kind (and one is being reserved for the Smashwords release of Family Matters, whenever that is). In addition to all of that, there will also be those non-vampire stories I mentioned previously. What I’m basically trying to say is that I plan to throw a lot of stories your way in 2016. I hope you don’t mind. 😀


 

This is a special early posting for those of you who are following my blog and anyone else who happens to stumble across this entry. The story will be announced on social media and posted to the usual sites on 12/20.

Enjoy, and thank you so much for your support! ❤

Coming up in 2016

(Heh, coming—did I ever claim to be mature?)

Anyway, lest anyone think that I’m only capable of writing about vampires, I wanted to share some of the things on my plate for 2016:

  • Um, well, there’s Book 2 of the Harborview Immortals series. And yeah, that’ll have vampires in it, but moving on…
  • A story featuring a different kind of Harborview immortal. The angelic kind. (This will be based on an angel-verse I created years ago. More on that later.)
  • A story about two lifelong friends who end up on opposite sides of the law but manage to put aside their differences for one very special night.
  • A story about two members of a gang, ahem, I mean organization who explore what it really means to be “brothers.”

There are a few more  (shorter) things I’m contemplating right now, but the ones I listed are pretty much set in stone. It’s going to be a busy year.

An Unexpected Addition DL and Story Links

An Unexpected Addition Cover

Vampires Dominic and Jacob have been together for almost two hundred years. Despite the pain of their respective pasts, they now have tremendous wealth, power, and—most importantly—each other. However, thanks to a new business opportunity (and an impromptu quest for flavored lube), they’re about to discover the one thing that they’ve been missing in their long lives: fatherhood.

This is a Harborview Immortals prequel short story (I revised the hell out of it, causing it to lose its novelette status). While it contains references to Family Matters, no prior knowledge of the book is required.

The Downloads & Story Links page has also been updated. Please message me if you have trouble with any of the links.

(Lastly, because I’m kind of obsessive, the Family Matters downloads have been updated with versions that have properly centered scene breaks. It was keeping me up at nights, you have no idea. Sorry about the fail.)

Happy Thanksgiving!

If you celebrate Thanksgiving, then I hope you have a wonderful one! (And if you don’t, then have an awesome Thursday!)

Also, as a reminder, An Unexpected Addition will be available for free download and posted online this Sunday, 11/29. This Harborview Immortals prequel novelette explains how Dominic and Jacob stumbled across little baby Xan in the first place and their subsequent adventures in new daddyhood, what with the bottles and diapers and spitting up and such. 😀

Bad news, awesome news

The Smashwords release of Family Matters has been postponed until further notice, meaning at least until NaNoWriMo is over because dealing with this has been murder on my daily word count.

But!!!  Unless I get blindsided by a meteor *knock on wood* the book will be available for download this weekend—Sunday, most likely—in EPUB, MOBI, and PDF formats. So you will finally be able to get your virtual hands on the book. A week or so following this, An Unexpected Addition will also be made available for download; I decided to hold off on sharing this until after the book was out since it contains references to Family Matters that might be somewhat spoilerish to those of you who did not follow the story when it was previously posted online.

Finally… what do you give the vampire who has everything? Find out Jacob’s answer next month in Small Packages, a sweet and smutty Harborview Immortals short story. Because nothing says Christmas like vampires and porn, am I right? 😀

Family Matters, Chapter 1

Due to an unexpected formatting snag, I don’t have a firm ETA for the book’s release. It all depends on whether or not the snag can be corrected with minimal loss of sanity. Fingers crossed. In the meantime, I wanted to go ahead and share the final version of Chapter 1 for anyone interested in reading it. In addition to this, I will be re-posting An Unexpected Addition, a prequel novelette I originally wrote for Father’s Day back in June.

Once I know where I stand with the Smashwords prep, I will announce it here. In the meantime, enjoy!

 

About Family Matters:

Jacob and Dominic are the parents of a young man named Xan. And really, they’re just like any other parents… except they happen to be vampires.

Despite their present-day prominence, the couple has had to endure numerous challenges over the centuries, from plagues to wars to slavery—Jacob even has the scars to prove it. But their biggest challenge of all is giving Xan room to grow while protecting him from the dangers of the vampire world, dangers that are further heightened when Dominic’s estranged maker comes to town and expresses an interest in meeting his “grandson.”

As for the geeky and free-spirited Xan, he only has one thing on his mind: getting laid. But when he meets a vampire fledgling named Michael, he soon learns that there is more to life, even a human one, than screwing every guy he meets.

Family Matters is the first book in the Harborview Immortals series by Emma Peterson. Continue reading “Family Matters, Chapter 1”
