About Verlene Landon

Verlene was born and raised in the south. Thanks to the military, she's traveled the US, but now calls Sin City home. Self proclaimed zombie apocalypse enthusiast, word porn peddler, human canvas, Manowarrior, serial grammar killer, rabid Bama fan, accidental dust bunny population specialist, and abuser of the word f*ck.

Title: Reckless Youth (Part 1)
Series: Reckless – The Smoky Mountain Trio (a 3-book MFM/MMF serial)
Author: Sierra Hill
Genre: Contemporary Erotic MFM Romance
 
Release Date: Tuesday, September 18, 2018
 
BLURB:
A forbidden love. A lustful love. A doomed love.
 
Part One of a three-part, epic, MFM love story that spans the course of 25 years. It has drama, love, betrayal, sacrifice and of course, lots of steamy MFM action!
Conventional wisdom says you can’t love two people, but I’ve proved that wrong. Because I did.
I’ve loved two boys in my lifetime. Two boys I grew up with; boys I laughed with and cried with and eventually fell in love with.
Our love morphed into an overwhelming devotion eventually opening our eyes, bodies, and hearts to a very different type of love.
A Forbidden Love.
A Lustful Love.
A Doomed Love.
They say that the heart isn’t meant for that kind of duplicity, but my stupid stubborn heart never listened.
Loving them was a necessity, something akin to breathing.
Nothing could keep us apart.
Until that fateful night – the night that tore my heart into two equal, broken parts.

League of Eternals is…

… outdated?
But, they aren’t even published yet. ROFLMAO
OMG, ok, so I decided to open up LoE today. (You know, that book series I initially wanted to start with as a writer but can’t let it into the world because it’s my baby.)
I had 1 and 1/3 stories in the series rough drafted as of, well, let’s not name years. I didn’t realize how long ago I finished book 1 until I got the bug up my ass to open the file.
Let’s just say the Sahara was still around the year I started Grant & Mac’s story and finished their rough draft shortly after the Sahara was no more.
(It’s mentioned in the first paragraph of the book and had an impact on a pivotal part of their history, so, um, yeah, rewrites will be needed for more reasons than my skill as a writer then.)
I just found it interesting and wanted to share.
If you are not familiar with LoE at all, they are eternal beings from different points in time who are currently living in Vegas kicking team evil’s ass, while making all the ladies…and some dudes, swoon. There’s a knight for the 1700s, a privateer from the 1800s, a cop from the 80s, a cowboy from the 90s, a male stripper from the 2000s, and a Fremont street celebrity impersonator from no one knows, who looks a hell of a lot like a murdered rapper. There are others, but we have to keep some things a secret.
Anyway, when I opened the file and was met with my partial character board, I just had to let y’all see it.
(The people in the pictures do not endorse me or even fucking know me. These are inspirational pics ONLY.)

Do You Smell That?

If you’ve followed me from my very first book or if you’ve chatted with me at an invent, you probably know scent in my books is a big thing for me.
The way my characters smell is described in each book. Becuase scent matters to me, from the start of this journey, I’ve custom blended melts for every one of my main characters.
These little wax melts smell exactly as I imagine my characters do. I give them away with the purchase of their corresponding books.

I always believed, as a reader, if I could smell the characters I love as I read it would add a layer to the experience. Like an awesome immersive experience, so as a writer I try to give that to my readers with these melts.

I have a giveaway about it going on right now on my Facebook profile. Go find the original post to enter. https://www.facebook.com/verlene.landon

OSCAR MIKE by Verlene Landon

As a soldier, Cassie was always on the move, but when her husband was killed in an explosion overseas, her life stalled.

She lost her best friend that day and had nowhere to turn in her time of grief.

Rob, Jeff, and Cassie had been inseparable in high school. When Jeff and Cassie became a couple, and Rob realized his feeling ran deeper than just friends, they drifted apart.

But fate was cruel and spiteful. Ending up in the same unit as the “happy” couple was hell. Not being able to act on his feelings for Cassie? Pure torture. When a new assignment brought him and Jeff to London, Rob was excited, but losing his leg and watching Jeff die in his arms took his life in another direction.

Now he has a secret, one he isn’t sure Cassie can forgive him for.

Will Cassie allow herself to find love with the one person who can truly make her feel? Or will Rob’s secret destroy any chance of a happy ending, and send Cassie running?

Man hugging woman in underwear.

Life Hack Novels

I posted on my website a while back, or so I thought, I forgot to make the page public. So I’ve been sitting around thinking people knew, but they had no idea. LOL

ANYWAY…

I’m working on an exciting series of stand-alone novels based on some basic and not-so-basic life lessons, the Life Hack Novels.

Learning to Fly, Learning to Cook, Learning to Walk, Learning to Write, Learning to Talk, Learning to Volunteer, and Learning to Ride, are just a few examples of what’s to come.

Each book is a complete stand-alone with new characters with new lessons to learn or relearn.

Keeps your eyes open for Learning to Fix Things, coming this year…hopefully.

Rhys Cole’s life has always revolved around hockey. Growing up, he knew he’d play in the National Hockey League, but when his dream of being drafted didn’t happen, he chose the next best thing: becoming a hockey sportscaster for a local sports station. But just like in sports, you win some, you lose some. When Rhys discovers his girlfriend cheating with a stranger in his bed, he walks to the local bar down the street to let off some steam.

After moving her way up the journalism field by covering stories in extreme weather conditions and working late hours, Ashtyn Valor is now the lead anchor for the nightly news. Finally settled into her career, Ashtyn is ready to take the next step in life with her boyfriend. But when he unexpectedly breaks up with her, Ashtyn decides to numb the pain with alcohol at the closest bar.

Rhys and Ashtyn both expected an evening of alcohol to mask the pain of that October night. What they didn’t expect was meeting someone who could shield them from the darkness of their heartaches.

When an obsessed stalker turns dangerous, Ashtyn turns to Rhys for safety. Safe in each other’s arms, they realize fate has other plans for their hearts. But what will happen when Rhys finds out that their pasts are intertwined and Ashtyn’s stalker decides murder is the only way to make the obsession reality?

Rhys and Ashtyn learn the game of love always goes on.

And their game was just beginning.

Whew, October!

October was so busy, I can’t share everything in the newsletter so I am making this post about signings so you can see some of the pics.

October 7 was Brew City Book Signing in Milwaukee, WI.

I hit up the Harley Museum the day before and meet some awesome authors and readers at the event. My room sucked, it had mold, but it couldn’t ruin my weekend.

 

October 14 was Arch City Book Signing in Columbus, OH.

WOW, such a good time. I got to hang with some of my favorite people and saw the best drag show ever!

October 21 was Desert & Wine with the author at Vegas Valley.

I got to sit and chat with an amazing woman over cupcakes and hear some interesting information from other authors.

October 28 was Love N Vegas, right here in my hometown.

What a way to close out my year of signings. This event was ah-mazing. I hope to get an invite in the future.
