I'm right now writing the second book in my paranormal romance/erotica series Forever Yours - Angel in Madness. It's Raven´s and Renée's story. Renée is Yorin's daughter. If you have read book one, then you know who Yorin is. That alone points to a story loaded with drama, crazyness and passion. :)

There has been a lot of talk going on about the movie Fifty Shades of Grey ever since the book came out. When it was announced that a movie was going to be made, it felt like the whole world went crazy because of the books "sensitive" subject. There was so much bad criticism about everything, it seemed. I must say that I haven't read the book, but all this made me want to see the movie. And just like the book, the movie recieved a lot of bad critisicm. For me, it felt like people where criticizing something they themselves had no experiences with but felt they had the right to critizes it because it is not a "normal" thing to do or want. I'm talking about the BDSM. So, because of that, I had to go and see the movie for myself.
I didn't know what to expect when I sat down in the movie theater and the film started to play, but to my surprise, I found myself really enjoying the movie. It was loaded with emotions and hot sceens, but nothing was too much. Dakota Johnson was perfect for the role. She managed to play a sweet and innocent woman with little experiences in life very well. Even Jamie Dornan made a great job with his role, but he didn't really put off those vibes Anastasia seemed to get from him. I didn't experience him as intense enough.
I loved the acting, but I also enjoyed many of the sceens, especially the business meeting sceen. That one was just perfect! The music was perfect for the movie as well. I found myself laughing quite often, and sometimes it felt like I was watching a comedy as well, but it was all fitted just right into the story. Some have said that the movie lacks a story line, but I thought there was a very clear story in it. It was about two peoples sexual experiences and relationship, how they got to know each other and how things evolved for them.
In my eyes, this was a great movie. I wouldn't mind seeing it again. I would also like to say: Don't listen to the critics! Go and see for yourself.

I was out walking with my dog the Yorkshire terrier Shanti when my cat Cici made us company. I managed to take a few pictures of her when she was walking toward me, and I think they turned out really well. It became an interesting sequens. :) In the last image, you can see a little bit of Shanti.

Sanguinary, by Margo Bond Collins
A Night Shift Novel
Forthcoming October 8, 2014
Pre-Order on Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Sanguinary-Night-Shift-Book-1-ebook/dp/B00MR5VGV8/
Only fifty years left before vampires rule the world.
When Dallas police detective Cami Davis joined the city's vampire unit, she planned to use the job as a stepping-stone to a better position in the department.
But she didn't know then what she knows now: there's a silent war raging between humans and vampires, and the vampires are winning.
So with the help of a disaffected vampire and an ex-cop addict, Cami is going undercover, determined to solve a series of recent murders, discover a way to overthrow the local Sanguinary government, and, in the process, help win the war for the human race.
But can she maintain her own humanity in the process? Or will Cami find herself, along with the rest of the world, pulled under a darkness she cannot oppose?
"Hey, Bradley." I beckoned the crime-scene tech, who had finally arrived and was snapping on gloves. "Is that a piece of paper under the vic's head?"
He bent down over my shoulder to get a clearer view from my line of sight. "Looks like it's tangled in her hair," he said. He pulled a pair of long tweezers out of his kit and snagged the sliver. "Yep. Looks like it has a word written on it . . ." We both peered at the brownish, spidery writing.
"Sanguinary," I said. "Is that written in blood?"
"Maybe. I'll get the lab to run a basic analysis on it. If it's blood, we'll be able to let you know pretty quick if it's human and if so, what type. DNA will take longer."
"Sounds good." I stared at the woman a little longer. Her dark hair—almost the same color as mine—spilled out around her, matted with dark, coagulating blood. The two bloody marks on her neck shone like black stars on a white background.
I knew that if I lifted her dress, there would be other puncture wounds all over the body, and strange symbols carved across her skin—pentagrams within circles and other ritualistic signs. Exactly like the others. Ten murders in the four weeks since the beginning of September—all centered in downtown Dallas, and many with affluent victims whose families demanded action.
The department had been in a barely suppressed uproar.
I stood up, my knees popping a little. Five years ago, they wouldn't have done that.
And five years before that? Vampires hadn't existed, except in books and B-movies.
It took time for the world to believe. We hadn't even realized how to fight back when they'd first shown up.
This victim's ragged, bloody fingernails suggested that she had tried to resist, but obviously failed.
The red dress she wore would have originally matched the color of the relatively scant splashes of blood surrounding her, but those stains had dried to a muddy brown, the same color as the writing on the paper caught in her hair.
Her clothing suggested that she'd been at the opera that evening, though the manager, roused from her bed, swore that the building had been cleared and empty when she left.
One black, high-heel shoe lay several feet away, toppled over onto its side, the heel broken, as if she had stumbled out of it when it failed her as she ran from a pursuer.
I'd heard the word before from vampires I had taken down—whispered as a threat, shouted as a warning: the Sanguinary is coming, the Sanguinary will kill you all.
The Sanguinary is here.
It was why I was about to go undercover among the vampires.

From time to time, I enjoy making graphic designs that has nothing to do with covers. It's a great way for me to learn something new. Here, you have my latest attempt. Under my image, I show you which photos I used to create the image. To create the white, flowing wind and magic, I used special brushes. The image was made in GIMP. Let me know what you think! :)
Here are the photos I used to create this image:

I have made no secret of the cover for the first book in my upcoming series Bound by Her, but some of you might have noticed that I have made some changes a few times. When I think it can't get any better, I find something to improve it with. So I thought, I'd show you the changes the cover has gone through. Which one do you like best? :)
This is what it looks like now:
I like this version too:
