413 Remembrance Lane: Diary of a House

The 413 Remembrance Lane anthology that I have been working on with Emma Wildes, D Musgrave, Skyler Grey, Cheri Valmont, Jude Mason and Jamie Hill is about wrapped up.

We chosen our cover art ...

We've written out blurbs ...

Two centuries, many owners, and the question has been asked . . . is it blessed, or cursed?
There is a certain house in New Orleans at 413 Remembrance Lane. Within the walls lives end and begin, myths and superstition blend with reality, erotic fantasies are realized, and always love has held the upper hand.

It is the house, steeped in history and the emotions of those who have lived there? Or perhaps the legend goes a little deeper.

'Midnight Confession' by Cheri Valmont offers a journey to the wild,untamed settlement of 1750s New Orleans. A place where a specialhouse, a magical diary, and a pirate captain named Miles Chadwick holds the key to Catherine Ashbury's everlasting happiness... or complete ruin.

Serena Duclos is torn between two men and one very extraordinary request. Luckily, she lives in a house where wishes can come true and passion isn't always defined by convention ... in Emma Wildes' 'An Extraordinary Request'

In Jude Mason's 'Of Death and Desire', Jonathan Strand moves himself and his terminally ill lover, Philip, to one of the lovely historical houses of New Orleans. Later, consumed by grief and tormenting dreams, he finds a diary, and perhaps the answer to his prayers. But at what price?

In 'The War Within' By D. Musgrave, William Beauregard returns from WWII, only to find the visions of the death and destruction haunting him still. He can't shake them and it's pushed him away from his wife, Sheila. These hauntings, have him afraid of the voices and images and worries he may lash out at them, hurting his wife. To rid himself of the ghosts, he must take a huge risk, one that could lose his wife to him for ever.

In 'Let The Sunhine In' by Jamie Hill, Scott and Terri Walker move to Remembrance Lane hoping for a fresh start in their marriage. Handsome, hirsute Rafe McAllister isn't precisely what they're looking for, but might be exactly what they need.

Mix in an old house, a magic diary, a sexy young college student and a sinfully handsome vampire and you've got a story sure to stir the... blood in Skyler Grey's 'My Vampire, My Love'.

Natasha has come to regret the choices she has made in her life, the biggest one being turning away from the one woman she had ever loved. But thanks to a late night visit from a succubus and the diary of 413 Remembrance Lane, she can have a second chance, in Michelle Houston's 'The Life Not Lived'.

And now we just have to wait until August to see it published. Oh, the agony of the wait!


But I do know we are all very proud of how this anthology turned out, and each and everyone one of us is looking forward to its publication date.

Forgot that did I. : )

It's coming out in August from PHAZE. And yeah, the cover is great! I was so happy that all of our names were able to fit on the cover.
