Character Reading: Devlin

This is a reading for a fictional character. I do these to help my fellow authors promote their books and to give you a chance to win some things. I am very pleased to have been able to read for Joey Hill’s hero from A Vampire’s Claim–the very sweet and a bit flirtatious, Devlin.

vampiresclaimDevlin is a human. Born in the early 20th century, he hails from Australia. I really enjoyed reading for him. He has some secrets that he’s not telling me here, but I am sure he reveals them in his story.

Author Joey Hill is well known for her romances.  She is an accomplished writer who writes for Ellora’s Cave as well as Berkley.  Her latest book comes out August 4, 2009. And you could win a copy for yourself.

Warning! This is a spicy love story and Dev uses some very real language. On to the reading. Don’t miss that contest at the end! Continue reading “Character Reading: Devlin”

It’s given me some amazing breakthroughs, and it was instrumental in writing my last outline for a proposal. It’s almost eerie when I look back and think, wow, if I hadn’t pulled that card, the novel might have taken an entirely different turn.–Jeri Smith-Ready
