It is my pleasure to have Asta Idonea on the blog today with her new release 
"The House Guest"

Heat Level: 4

Zach is thrilled with his new flat, until strange noises disturb him. Who wanders his home at night, laughing and singing, and why is the place always spotless when he never cleans? There was no mention of a house guest in the contract, but it seems Zach has a nocturnal visitor.

Bogdan never expected to end up in Zach’s tiny flat, but now that he’s here, he intends to make the best of it. Zach seems preferable to his last master, and he waits for the right moment to announce his presence. He doesn’t count on Zach’s determination to seek out the truth himself in the meantime.

“Ha, ha, ha!”
Zach shot upright and blinked into the darkness. He strained his ears, listening for the smallest of sounds, but the flat was silent, save for the gentle creak of the window when the wind buffeted against it and the refrigerator’s soft hum. For a moment, he could have sworn he heard laughter, but it must have been his imagination, or else the remnants of a dream he had not realized had begun. Chastising himself for his jumpiness, he settled back down.
“Ha, ha, ha!”
This time he was certain it was no dream. There was laughter coming from within the flat. Someone was in the next room. For all he’d joked earlier in the day about how ridiculous the idea was, it turned out there was an intruder in his home.
Zach gripped the covers and wondered what to do. He’d left his mobile in the lounge when he went to bed, so he couldn’t call for help without going out there. What was the best way to deal with an intruder? Should he stay still and quiet and hope the man—the voice had sounded male—left without attacking him, or should he get up and attempt to scare him away by catching him in the act? Either seemed risky, but he needed to decide one way or the other. For a moment, he wished his older brother were there. Steven was a black belt in karate and a weightlifter. His strong build was better suited to putting robbers to flight than Zach’s skinny frame. However, Steven wasn’t present. He had no choice but to handle this alone.

Happy Tuesday everyone. Well, Glass City is over for 2016 and I'm already making plans for 2017. Thank you to everyone who stopped by my table and visited with me. I was so excited to meet some folks that I had been chatting with online for ages. To finally meet them face to face, share a hug and conversation, was a dream come true. The venue was huge but had an air of "Welcome. Come in and join us for the fun". 

It was a pleasure to see authors, I'd met at other events again, and catching up and admiring new releases with them. I was thrilled to see my VIP winners and the excited looks on their faces at such an amazing event. 

Coming up I will be at Queen of the West Book Bash at the Duke Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio on Saturday, October 29th. Below there is a link for more information and a link to where you can get tickets. General Admission is now $2.50. Hope to see you there.

Queen of the West Book Bash Information

Here are a few pictures from Glass City, I thought you might enjoy. The official photographer hasn't posted his pictures yet so I'll share them as soon as I can. You just won't believe how huge this event was until you see them. There were so many authors that we had to be split into two groups for two pictures of us. 

Until next time, have a lovely week and enjoy the coming fall weather and changing foliage.
