Hi Everyone! We’re so excited to see you come and join us at the grand opening of ShapeShifter Romance! Wow. (Taking a deep breath). This has been a dream of mine for a few months. A place where the lovers of shapeshifter romance can meet the authors of shapeshifter romance, and, well… have fun! We want this to be as interactive as possible, so we welcome all your comments, jokes, and dreams of that perfect shifter wandering into your life!
First, let’s get some business out of the way. 🙂 We created a Yahoo Group that everyone can join. It’s not your typical group, where everyone goes and chit chats. There are tons of those around, and if you’re like me, you’re starting to get overwhelmed. This is just an announcement group so the authors of ShapeShifter Romance can reach you if they have a special event. It will be used to tell you of new releases, contests or signings, things like that. To subscribe,

You will NOT be able to post a message at this list – remember it’s just so we can send you goodies in email now and then. If you want to chat, wander over here, we’ll be happy to have you. If we grow as we all hope, who knows, maybe a message board is possible for the future.
*sighs*. Excellent, that’s out of the way. Now let’s learn a little bit about the fun that’s yet to come.
So what is ShapeShifter Romance? And why do we each write it? I think each of our ladies can give you different reasons why they find Shape Shifters so much fun to write about, but for me, it’s the pure animalistic power of them.
This weekend, I was working on “Getting in the mood” to edit a really fascinating scene in “Tigress by the Tail,” and did so by hitting up YouTube and watching all the tiger video I could find. The sheer power in those animals just calls to something inside me. When that heroine trembles when she meets the hero, it’s not just because he’s handsome. Instead, there’s something pure, and animalistic. It’s nature at it’s best. The mix of both worlds, human and animal.
I’ll never forget my first shapeshifter story I read. It was written by Ronda Thompson, and was in an anthology. It wasn’t the series she’s known best for, but was instead Secret Serenade, in the After Twilight anthology. I bought it because it contained a Christine Feehan story. When I got to Ronda’s, I thought “Ok, I don’t have anything better to read, so I guess I’ll go ahead of and read this.” I wasn’t enthused to say the least. How can something like a werewolf be exciting and sexy?
In moments I was caught up in Rick Donavon’s story. My heart cried for this man willing to give up his life to save the woman he loved. I was hooked on a new genre. It wasn’t long before I discovered other shifter authors (I’ll admit, Rebecca York was one of those authors).
Before I knew it was writing my own. Then I discovered that the shifter authors were out there, but the readers were dangling, searching for new work to read.
That’s where ShapeShifter Romance comes in. We hope to give you the best of all worlds – more about our work and guest authors to tell you about theirs! Shapeshifters are here to stay and they have a home at ShapeShifter Romance!
So my question to you is – What is it about shapeshifters that appeal to you? Is it the instinctive power? The acceptable level of aggression that would never be tolerated in humanity? Or is it just the hot, instinctive sex that you know they can’t hold back because it’s just “meant to be?” Come on, you can tell us – it’ll be our secret. *evil grin*
So now’s your chance! Jump in and tell us all – why YOU like ShapeShifter Romance! And while you’re thinking, here’s a fun animal video to keep you company. Just picture your favorite hero in these images! (Just remember, this is NOT a book trailer, but sure looks like one)
