New Fiction: Dusk’s Warriors by Emerian Rich

Super excited to announce the release of my vampire sequel, Dusk’s Warriors! Check out the sites and dates of the blog tour below.  Dusk’s Warriors
by Emerian Rich

Heaven has opened up and welcomed the vampires of Night’s Knights into a new reality. As they struggle to find their place in their new world, trouble brews on Earth.

Demon servant, Ridge, is causing havoc by gathering up all the souls on Earth that have been touched by immortality. When he injures one of the Night’s Knights crew, he launches a war between the vampires of Heaven, the Big Bad in Hell, and a mortal street gang of vigilante misfits.

Will Julien, Markham, and Reidar be able to defeat the evil that’s returned, or will they once again need Jespa’s help?

In honor of the release, check out the blog tour! You can learn more about the book, read excerpts, and read more about your favorite characters!

Sonoma Book Festival 2011 – The Recap

Great seeing everyone at the festival! Hope to see you again. Here are some pictures from the event.

Laurel Anne Hill, Ann Wilkes, Emerian Rich

There were tons of authors there. More main stream and non-fiction authors than I’ve ever seen congregated in one place. We had an awesome time meeting new fans and old. We also had a beautiful place to read from. Our Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading set was as follows:

Emerian Rich (that’s me!). I read a portion of Night’s Knights. For all you fans of NK, it was the part when Markham is killed by coach robbers and Severina saves him.  It was the only section I could fit a complete scene into the 5 minute allowed time and still be PG. This was something new for me. I’m usually asked to read longer and read the steamy bits!  This was also the first time I’ve ever read outside. Quite an experience… but a nice one!  It’s wasn’t too hot, so no fear of melting under the horrible rays of the sun!

Laurel Anne Hill

All puns intended.” You can find out more about her at: http://www.annwilkes.com/
