When I decided to take a few copies of The Bigfoot Chronicles 1 and 2 with me to RomCon, I didn't know what sort of reaction I would get from them. I was pleasantly surprised and then overwhelmed by the reaction.
The readers LOVED IT! Whoohoo!
Now you all know, I'm one of four pen names for Tammy Dennings Maggy (my real name is actually Tammy Smith!). The four of "us" write in a variety of genres and various heat levels. My Bigfoot books are definitely not a traditional romance and are more erotica. Yes, there is a romantic element and I think I put a different twist with these tales compared to the others in the monster erotica genre. That's what makes this genre intriguing to me. There are so many different takes on the monster/human couplings so we have something for everyone.
The response to Ashar and Bryanna's story proves it. Of course there were some who had me sign their books to other people. *wink wink* These folks tickled me to no end. To think they'd stop by and give a new author a chance as well as try out a taboo genre—well, let's just say I'm still smiling from ear to ear.
This experience has inspired me to push the envelope even more with the third book in the trilogy. It's going to be longer than the first two, maybe even longer than those combined as there is so much these characters keep showing me. Because of the fabulous response at RomCon, my publisher is pushing up the release of the eBook version of the combo book so look for that to go live within the next few days. You all know how Amazon can be. They could have a delay, or things could go up in a flash! LOL
Thank you again RomCon! We'll be back again next year with even more monster tales and other dark erotic fantasies to share with everyone. Until then, I'll leave you with the cover for Bigfoot's Revenge (The Bigfoot Chronicles 3). ~Tawny

Welcome back to my little corner of the blogosphere. I'm happy to announce the print version of my Bigfoot Chronicles 1 & 2 is now awaiting final approval before we can order copies to take with us to RomCon in less than three weeks. Denver won't know what hit them when the readers get their hands on my taboo tales.
Why will my book be at a romance convention? Well, my publisher will be there and so will I. For those of you who haven't figured it out yet, I'm one of FOUR pen names for the same person. It's fun to keep up the tongue in cheek pretense that we're separate people, but we're all ME. It's simply easier to keep the various categories and heat levels my work falls into separate if I use different pen names. It helps readers know right off what sort of storyteller they're tackling just by the name on the front.
Enough of that. Here's what all of you came here to see. The print galley mock up of the new cover.
I love how they have Bryanna in shadow on the back. It gives the illusion that Ashar is hovering over her, out of view of the camera. We had to keep his features hidden again in this cover because we have major reveals for the last in the trilogy. Of course I already spilled the one big one here on the blog. Click HERE to find out.
Shocked? LOL! Many others are too and can't wait for the conclusion in Bigfoot's Revenge (The Bigfoot Chronicles 3). Look for that release in late July/August. I'm shooting for that but this story keeps taking on more twists. This part me end up being longer than the first two combined!
See you all around and come talk to "us"in Denver. The hubby will be there too.
