Call Of The Beast by Erica Reeder
Love turns to blood when Shiloh, Alpha of the Catskill Wolf Pack, meets newcomer Austin Turner. Her beast wants the mouthwatering werewolf with a desire like she’s never known. And despite the tattoos running up and down his arms, he seems like the perfect mate. That is until mysterious things start happening in the pack. Then Shiloh finds herself in a race to find out where the violence is coming from, and all signs point to him. Can she stop the violence? Or will her hunger for Austin leave the blood of her own pack on her hands?

quiet of the night. “May I?”
leader kissing a relative unknown. Uncertainty clouded my judgment for the
first time in forever. I looked back to the pack and realized we were alone in
the clearing. Shouts of laughter and howls could be heard deep in the woods.
They were off doing God knew what.

this really happening?
in sexual situations, but this time I just waited. Waited to see what he would
do. The anticipation ratcheted as he brought his hand up to cup my jaw line.
The tips of his fingers reached my ear. I forgot to breathe as his finger
caressed my earlobe.
came ever closer, inch by inch. My lips ached for him. He stopped though and
just stared at me. I could almost see the stars reflected in his eyes.

softness of his lips played against mine: touching, tasting. It was heaven. The
world fell away as my eyes closed.
focused on the way his lips slipped over mine. My mind spun as he pulled me
closer still. The heat of his body seared me. I nipped at his lips. He wasn’t
close enough. Urgency flooded through me. I pulled at him. Groaning, he molded
his lips to mine.
opened my mouth. My breath hitched as our lips and tongues danced. Heat flooded
through me. My beast reached for him through our lips. She wasn’t the only one
either. I tasted the dusky earthiness of his own beast as he reached for mine.
my name, do you? You want to know me. The REAL me. Not the veneered person from
the picture. Well, you’re in luck- this is your chance!! And if these questions
don’t satisfy you, my books certainly will. 😉 (If you know what I mean! *wink,
wink- nudge, nudge*)
long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
been writing for 24 years. I know that makes me seem like I’m 100 years old,
but it’s not quite that dramatic. I started writing in 6th grade. I won Young
Authors and it opened up a whole new world (cue the Aladdin music!) I was all,
“Wow, I REALLY enjoyed writing that! Wait…people LIKED it? Hold on, you’re
saying I can do this for a LIVING?! Sign me up!!!” And the rest, as they say, is
you come up with this storyline?
wears heels for quite some time. I love the idea of a strong woman leading the
pack and completely reversing gender roles. It’s so important to me that she be
feminine too. It gets so old this idea that only manly women can be strong.
Screw that- put on some heels and work it! Anyway, I had the chance to write that
character, Shiloh, in my last book, Nevermore. She kept calling to me, so I
stopped what I was doing and gave her this story.
are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
of writing is when I’m writing I understand everything in the world I’m
creating. Good. Bad. Innocent. Evil. It all has a reason. It all has a place.
That is so attractive to me because I don’t always understand the world we are
in. Senseless things happen everyday. I like reason and logic.
be asking what that has to do with Paranormal and Fantasy. That’s a damn good
question! And that’s where I get to be me! I crave the impossible and the
infinite possibilities that go along with the thought, “What if the impossible
WERE possible?” How much fun would that be?! Those are the best parts of
writing to me. The worst aspect of writing is trying to revise the story on the
page to match what’s in my head. There’s so much I want to put in, but as a
writer you can only include what moves the story forward with only a few
auxiliary pieces sprinkled in. That can make the process painful!!!
inspires you to write?
If I don’t write for awhile, I start to become bitey. I get irritated easily
and unhappy. It’s like my brain forgets why until I write again. Then it all
comes back like, “Oh, that’s right. I need to write to not be a jerk!” I can’t
be sane without it!
were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it? Do You
Want To Touch Me There? An Inspiring Tale of Freedom, Faith, and Glitter
are 3 of your favorite lines from Call of
the Beast: Head over Heels?
- “Austin Turner had lips that screamed of ecstasy.
They called to me: taste me, touch me.”
- “He broke our kiss only long enough to toss my shirt
and lace bra to the ground. I took the same amount of time to grab his
shirt by each side and rip. Buttons popped and fell onto the wood floor
- “My beast bumped against me when she noticed it was
just him and I alone in the woods. She thought she was going to get what
she wanted. Get what she’d been begging for since she’d smelled him. She whispered to me, Take him.”
would your friends say is your best quality?
Reviews couldn’t be more important. First it’s direct feedback. If a reader
doesn’t like something, I need to know so I can change it. I write to
entertain, so if I’m not succeeding, there is a big problem! If there are too
many poor reviews, I’ll actually revise an entire book!! It’s also important on
the business side of things. Reviews can sway a reader’s opinion on whether to
buy a book or not. And being able to continue to do what I love means the world
one funny trait your have that you would like others to know.
the uncanny ability to turn almost anything into a sexual innuendo. It’s my
place to eat?
were one piece of clothing, what would you be?
because I’m the cute of a skirt but can’t restrain myself enough from fun to be
anything other than shorts beneath it all.
about your other books?
series is about a faerie princess who doesn’t want to be a faerie princess.
She’s been living away from faeries for some time and is a kick-butt bounty
hunter now. The series starts out with her taking the case of a murdered
faerie. During the case, unbeknownst to her she falls for her mortal enemy. I
love the series because her wit and attitude leave me rolling.
check out Violet Chaser, the first in the series, here: https://www.amazon.com/Violet-Chaser-episodes-Erica-Reeder-ebook/dp/B01A6B5MFA/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1452087877&sr=1-1&keywords=violet+chaser
you’ve already read that one, you can pick up Nevermore, the second, here:
could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what
would it be?
glitter. Ok, love doesn’t quite cut it. Obsessed. Yeah, that’s closer. Nothing
makes me happier than seeing my glitter all over everything: my kid, my
husband, my yoga mat, my keyboard- you name it. It makes me happy every time.
And that isn’t an exaggeration!
things you never wanted to know about the REAL me: I don’t think anyone ever
sat down and explained the word “Boundaries” to me because I don’t have any. The
ones I do have are just ones that I have to force myself to acknowledge to be a
decent person. I always joke that I need to establish more boundaries because
the ones I have are like lines in the sand. Someone keeps rubbing them out!
(See- I told you. I can’t help it!)

Erica Reeder spends her free time…wait- what free time?! In her mind, she’d spend it taking trips and playing on the beach with her son and husband. In reality, her time is filled with cooking up kooky characters and scheming plot twists, sprinkled in with playing The Sims and a healthy dose of family time.
Fairytales, and more!
