BLINDFOLDS PLEASE...If you all are expecting 

Kat and me to get down and dirty blindfolds are going to be REQUIRED EYE WEAR...'Cause like it or not, Kat is STILL my number One Daughter.

That said My Flaming Kitty is here to tout her hotter than the center of a Magma Chamber Vampire Series 

HEKATE'S WEB with book one 

HIDDEN already out here causing temperatures to rise and libidos to boil over, and Book Two 

SEEKER coming in time to melt many a six foot drift this coming late fall.

Since we're talking about MY progeny, 

KAT HOLMES, expert on all things remotely attached to GREEK MYTHOLOGY...(eat your heart out Great Britain's wanna be brain whiz The Beast who doesn't even know the longest river in the world is the NILE not the AMAZON on the ad currently touting him on the Game Show Network)...who has created a vampire world fashioned by the goddess of dark magic and night 

HEKATE...can it get ANY better?

HIDDEN is book one in this series that is going to be the next blockbuster, breakout, GOTTA HAVE vampire series on the horizon. 

I KNOW this because....(drum roll)....I'm 

PSYCHIC!'s absolutely TRUE...I AM!

In fact 

My Psychic name is...oops...can't tell...Names are POWER and I am NOT giving any of mine away...Just trust me...I'm a POWERFUL SOOTHSAYER.

Now that I've taken care of the prognostication part of this, lets get down to business...speaking with my 

Flaming Kitty.

I am TL (Tarting Ladybug, for future Reference here on this posting.)

TL: Welcome to my Blog Flaming Kitty. You know why I wanted you to pop on over and spend some time before your next 

HEKATE'S WEB comes out don't you?

FK: You don't think enough people have popped onto Hekate's and Lilith's bandwagon yet and wanted to get them to get a powerful hankering before we release the second book SEEKER.

TL: Close. I'm not really sure they'll be ready for what Atu is going to put us all through in SEEKER...what a pain in the 

Orb he's seeking he is. As heroes go, a lot of the time I want to polish his shiny noggin with something other than warm kisses.

FK: True. I have to admit I did make him a bit of a prick...or Hekate did. 

TL: Which I think is a good reason to have a strong handle on who 

Lilith is before you dive into SEEKER and the only way to do that is to pick up HIDDEN and devour it from the opening right smack dab to the very end.

FK: Well, I sort of agree with you, but then I wrote it, so am a bit partial to it.

TL: Let's start with why you have Lilith's SOB brother who is a bible beating pain in the patoot getting married in of all places a Pagan themed 

Renaissance Faire?

FK: I figured even a rigid wanna-be monk like him has to have fantasies that could be allowed some latitude given a once in a lifetime event like a wedding. Besides it's my tribute to my brother...your son...who chose to marry his bride all bedecked as Robin Hood to her Maid Maiden a few years ago. I thought it was such a cool wedding theme I socked it away knowing I would use it sooner or later. This just seemed like a good place to break out the knights and chivalry.

TL: Along with the bite of the vampire?

FK: No one ever said life isn't fraught with danger! And let's face it, anywhere a 

spiderweb can form, Hekate can bespell it into her own design.

TL: Once Lilith's bitten though, you don't let her surface and be known to the vampire world for thirty years. Why?

FK: I'm not the one who kept her hidden. 

HEKATE kept her Hidden, and who am I to try explaining the capriciousness of a goddess? Can you imagine explaining Zeus' idiosyncrasies? That'd be like trying to dissect the entire universe and minutely describing every inch of matter and anti-matter to the nearest amoeba. It's going to look at you like you're nuts. 

TL: Are you saying you don't know what Hekate is up to?

FK: I can guess, but that's all it'd be. Just when I THINK I've figured out what she's up to, she throws me a zillion and one curve balls...for instance, 

Lilith is for all intents and purposes a BABY VAMP and yet she seems to be more powerful than the long-in-the-tooth, been-around-since-The-Big-Bang-Vamps, including all the MALE what IS Hekate up to? Damned if I know.

TL: But the vamps aren't the ONLY immortals Hekate's messing with are they?

FK: Hell no! She's got her busy little claws in just about every immortal species and not-so-immortal-kind you can think of. If you don't believe me, take a look at what she does in 

SEEKER!  Although, come-to-think-about-it...Lilith doesn't START out seems to me Hekate mucked with her mortality in HIDDEN dontcha think?

TL: If you had to give a brief suck-nopsis of Hidden what would it be?"

FK: Lonely girl gets bit by vamp, cooks for thirty years, explodes upon world of good and bad vamps, setting both on their quivering fangs letting one and all know things are about to change BIG TIME and Hekate is in the driver's seat.

TL: So SEEKER just is more of the same? 

FK: Hell No AGAIN! Hekate is not your TYPICAL goddess. Lilith doesn't even show her brilliant red head in SEEKER. Nope. In this one Hekate has a mission for the good vamps and Atu, one of the good vamp Generals shows us the good vamps will get as bad as is needed to complete their missions...even if it means kidnapping and forcing the cooperation of others.

TL: You told me there's some kind of a 

scroll and orb involved in this one.

FK: Yep and death. It's got it all. There are going to be times when you want to beat Atu silly, and not in a good way, but in the end...

TL: Yeah in the end...Will we have a better idea what Hekate is up to when we come to the end of 


FK: I really don't know, because I haven't figured out what she's up to. I have some ideas, but she's keeping the direction she's spinning her web in close to her chest.

TL: Has she at least told you what will be the focus of book three?

FK: If she has, she immediately erased it from my conscious memory.

TL: So we're lost at sea?

FK: Of course not. As long as you have 

HIDDEN now and SEEKER on your e-readers when they're out, you can always go back any time you want to and re-read them!

TL: I raised a Smart-Ass!

FK: Yep, you did and you're proud of it!

TL: {chuckling} Yeah I am. Well there you have it. 


HEKATE'S WEB SERIES available RIGHT NOW and SEEKER...BOOK TWO coming out this fall. You KNOW you want them!
