Red Moon Rising By Erzabet Bishop   Bare branches of the tree line dotted the twilight sky. A brisk autumn breeze blew past and Kendall shivered. She huddled next to her car for warmth, but it wasn’t helping. The acrid smell of burning leaves tickled her nose. Mischief ran freely in the air tonight. She could sense it. Not much longer till Samhain. Just another month or so.  Time enough before the Witch’s Ball for her to make a bit of cash to get her costume in order. The park lay silent, save for the chirp of an occasional cricket and animals running in the brush. A refreshing change after her hectic day at the needlework shop. The pre-holiday sale had gone a little too well, and Kendall was exhausted. Endless hours winding skeins of yarn and teaching women to wield crochet hooks and knitting needles tended to fray her nerves. Especially the gaggle of stitchers that always seemed to show up on Wednesday mornings. They brought their samplers but for the last three weeks she swore not one x got crossed or one needle actually got run. Clueless the lot of them. She’d never seen a bunch of women take hours to accomplish absolutely nothing. Well, except make her miserable and drink the shop out of iced tea. “Unbelievable.” She muttered to herself. Her nerves were still smarting after one of them had complained to Astrid, her boss, that she had given them attitude. Astrid had rolled her eyes and dealt with the woman but she was pretty certain the discussion wasn’t over. Talk about the last freaking thing she needed. What was it with busy body women anyway? Her mother and Astrid were in the same coven. She was more than capable at setting up her own curses, thank you very much. She didn’t need help. The bitch had better watch her step the next time she came into the shop. Spit might not be the only thing she needed to worry about being in her tea. Kendall let out a throaty laugh that echoed in the silent parking lot. “Okay. This isn’t a serial killer special here. WTF? Dude I have to go.” She stomped her foot and checked her phone for the time. She wanted to get this meeting over with.  Her girlfriend Cybelle waited for her. They planned on looking though the costume shop site once she got paid. After weeks of nothing, a bite on her ad came through.  She texted the client shewould meet him after her shift at Cast Two Stitches. Things were lean and she needed the cash. Spell work for hire. Pretty straight forward. A love spell. A banishing or two. No biggie. What she didn’t like was meeting random weirdoes in the city park after dark. Astrid would kill her if she knew. So would her mom for that matter. The coven kept harping about not going out alone. Get real. It was the city. She was within earshot of practically everyone. If something happened, she could scream, and somebody would come running. The news reported another murder a few days ago.  Kendall wasn’t worried. She felt around in her pocket, palming the pepper spray she kept on her for just these occasions. Her stomach growled and she flipped her black hair out of her eyes impatiently. He had kept her here twenty minutes already. She should have stopped by the drive in on her way but she wanted to get Chinese take-out with Cybelle. The wind cut through her thin outfit, and she let out a curse. “Damn, I should have brought a coat.” Kendall ground out.  Her long black dress and clunky shoes did little to stave off the chill. She rubbed her hands along her arms to try and gather some warmth. If she got back in her car, the guy might miss her and leave. “Okay. Anytime now.” Kendall’s eyes scanned the growing darkness. So beautiful. So quiet. She missed coming here. It’s not like the park was in the country or something. It was only a few blocks away from the store.  The timing was pretty much right on with her needing costume money. At least it would have been if the guy had been on time and she wasn’t starving. The moon hung full and low in the sky and she sensed the pull deep in her bones. In the darkness to her left a light flickered. Kendall turned her gaze and found a dark form bounding out of the tree line right toward her at breakneck speed. “Jeez buddy. Are you okay?”  Kendall took a step back as the guy rushed closer. “Holy shit buddy. Stop! StoooopppNoooooo!”  The wolfen face was twisted, the eyes manic as the jaws opened and snapped against her face. The creature knocked her against the car. The fetid breath blew warm into her face. Kendall reached for her spell bag, but the beast came upon her too quickly. Grabbing a hold of the strap, he tore it from her. A bottle of potion burst, letting loose a spell of confusion.  The creature slipped and fell to the side, allowing her a brief window of escape. Kendall darted off into the woods, running like the hounds of Hell were after her. Branches and twigs snapped as she burst through the trees. No trail visible to her hurried glance, her eyes strained to see in the darkness. Clouds covered the moon. Another light twinkled in the distance. She ran toward it. Someone was there. Maybe they could help. Her feet bounded against the earth, her breath hard and fast in her ears. Behind her she heard the wolf making progress. The source of the light came from a small clearing.  Kendall burst through the trees, her breath labored. Her chest burned. A form stood in the center of a crudely drawn out pentagram gouged into the earth. “You.” Kendall rasped. “Why?” “Why ever not?” A flash of silver emerged from the woman’s robes. Kendall swung around to run. The beast countered her movements, blocking her way. Its yellow eyes glowed in the darkness. She never felt the blade enter. Only the sensation of falling as the ground rose up to meet her face. *** Detective Devi Watson pressed the mask against her face and sighed. The changing room at The Blue Minx was quiet and for the moment deserted. Time enough to get her identity hidden behind the black velvet and sequins.  She scooped her brown hair up into a messy up do and un capped a tube of blood red lipstick. She stared at the brilliant shade, her mind traveling back to when Astrid first gave her the silver tube. Astrid. Goddess she missed her. It had been three years. Yeah. And whose fault was that? “You look sexy in that shade of red.” Astrid came out of her bedroom with a small object in her hand. The florescent glow of the bathroom lights brought out the silvery blue in her eyes and the inky black waves of her hair. All ready to hit the club, Astrid was a knockout in her blue micro skirt and black corset. It was their place. No one from the coven went there and they could be themselves. Not a witch or a cop, but a couple.                 “Thanks.” Devi zipped up the side panel on the dress and adjusted her cleavage. Her breasts filled out the top portion of the vintage pinup outfit to a tee. Her hair was styled in old fashioned large curls parted down the middle, letting her long brown hair flow in waves down her back. One glance at her girl and her pulse pounded in her throat. “Are you sure we have to go? You’re good enough to eat.”                 Astrid laughed, her lips curling up into a smile. “You’re just afraid one of your cop friends is going to see you.”                 Devi’s eyes met Astrid’s in the mirror. She’d hit home and Astrid immediately frowned. Cops and witches didn’t get along. It was well known Devi’s family were hereditary witches and it had taken her a long time to help them see her as a cop, not a supernatural freak they had to worry about.                 “I’m sorry Devi. Your mom is still really pissed at you quitting the coven. Now I hardly ever see you anymore.” Astrid wrapped her arms around Devi and kissed her on the cheek. “I thought going to the club was good for us. You love to be adventurous.”                 “I love the club. But tonight I just wanted it to be us. Here. Together.” Devi protested, moving out of Astrid’s embrace to find her earrings. If Astrid wanted to go, then she would, but with great misgivings.                 “If you want…only I sort of reserved us one of the special rooms. It is our anniversary after all.” Astrid’s lips quirked into a flirty smile. “My mother knows full well why I left.” A slow burn of anger began to simmer in her gut. Her mother found ways to ruin everything. First her coven family and now her time with her girlfriend. She jerked the back off the earring and fastened it, repeating the action with the other ear. Two diamonds sparkled back at her in the glass. She could never tell Astrid why she’d left. Only that she didn’t want to be in the family business. Witches…great. Fine. Whatever. She looked at the tell-tale scars along the fleshy part of her arm. What she would not be was a monster.                 “Are you ever going to tell me what happened?” Astrid put her hand on her arm.                 “No. Just drop it okay?” Devi sighed. “I want to enjoy the night.”                 “So let’s get out of here.” Astrid looped her arms around her and held out a small silver tube. “This is for you.”                 “What is it?”                 “Can’t you guess?” Astrid purred, running a finger down between her breasts.                 “Oh you are  naughty tonight. I ought to take you over my knee and give you a swat for teasing me.”                 “Is that a threat or a promise?” Astrid taunted, turning around and wiggling her very sexy derriere at Devi.                 Devi caught her by the hand and swung her around into her arms. “I’m going to paddle your backside until you won’t be able to twitch that sassy ass for a week.”                 “Oh really?”                 “Yes really.”                 “Prove it.” Astrid reached up and planted a kiss on Devi’s lips.                 All the anger at her mother leached out of her in that second. The only thing was the warm and caring woman in her arms. Astrid ground her lips against Devi’s, urging them to open wide. Her tongue slipped inside and mated with Devi’s, making her weak in the knees. Then Astrid reached up and pinched Devi on the backside.                 “Come here you wicked girl.” Devi ground out. She led her to the bed and sat down. Careful not to wrinkle the vintage costume, she pointed to her lap.                 “Over my knees, saucy wench.”                 “Well whatever for?” Astrid lowered her lashes and tried to look demure. Her long black hair framed her face, making her appear like a child playing dress up. A very adult dress up.                 “Three swats for that pinch, missy. Then we’ll see.”                 Magic sparked in Astrid’s eyes, making the blue swirl bright purple. “You think I’m going to make it easy for you?”                 Devi smiled her own brand of wicked smile. It was only the two of them and she could be herself. If she was careful. Harnessing the element of air, she reached up and snapped her fingers. Astrid hurtled toward her, Devi catching her mid-flight.                 “Never think I’ve given up on being a witch. I just choose how and why.” She whispered in Astrid’s ear.                 “Oh.”                 “Now. I want you to count with me.”                 Devi raised her hand and lifted up the flounce of the micro skirt. Her hand struck Astrid’s ass and she smiled.                 Read more this summer in: Red Moon Rising coming in late summer or early autumn 2014.

Meet #SciSpanks authors Erzabet Bishop, Louisa Bacio, Anne Ferrer Odom, and Sue Lyndon!

Anastasia Vitsky

Hi. I’m Erzabet Bishop and I write urban fantasy blended with erotic romance. Sigil fire is an urban fantasy lesbian fiction tale. My Sci Spanks story is an excerpt from Blood Red Moon. Let me take you to a place where magic, myth and mayhem abound with an erotic edge to keep you coming back for more. The full novella will be out in the early fall. Yes, there will be spanking…

What would my superpower be?

If I could have any superpower, I would want to be a blood witch/vampire like Fae in Sigil Fire. She can take on anything and kick butt doing it-and still have time to fall in love with a woman who needs her to break a curse that has followed her for a millennia.

I would also love to simultaneously clean my house while writing. That would be the best trick ever. Oh…and add…

Reading on The Dark Side: The Compiled List of Series Devoured in 18 Months

Here are some great books in the urban fantasy realm. Elizabeth Hodge rocks with her series lists.

Queerly Reading Fantasy and the Dark Side of Things

Women Authors of Series (Only That I Have Read In the Last 18 Months)

Notes and Caveats:

  1.  While I did rate each series, I refrained from reviewing , giving only a quick snippet of the elements/themes focused on within the series.   The series was rated as a complete series, not via individual book.
  2. This list includes anthologies, within which many of the authors are contained.  I did not rate the anthologies.
  3. Included in the list are series & authors that I merely skimmed over or read one book only.   These remain unrated,  as insufficient information available for a fair rating.
  4. Excluded from this list: authors of multiple, single novels which may be connected by theme or genre, but are not series per se.
  5. Male authors are purposely excluded.   Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, Terry Goodkind, George R.R. Martin specifically


Armstrong, Kelley            …

I am a huge fan of romance authors and the stories they tell. I know how much work goes into perfecting your writing and getting your stories published. As an editor I recognize my authors as my greatest assets and work hard to help them recognize their goals.
I am interested in adding to my talented roster of authors and would like to invite you to sub your manuscripts directly to me.
