January 2013 Full Moon Book Signing

Jess: January 26th 2013, and I arrived, despite delays that drove me crazy, on Irish soil. In Dublin. It's not often that I get to see Paula, so every trip over is cause for manic excitement. And on this particular visit, we were set to sign books for the giveaways that have been hosted recently. It wasn’t all work and no play though. We met the lovely @samanthakane25 who has been a most enthusiastic supporter since before we published, and who introduced us to Baby Guinness, which Ash wholeheartedly prefers to the real thing, had drinks, and toured Dublin’s streets. We met hounds and leprechauns, and took a few photos along the way, causing mayhem (not so much mayhem) under the full moon. We thought we’d share. 

We have a few additional signed copies in our possession. Should you wish to purchase one, just click the 'Add To Cart' button at the top of the page and we'll send one out to you :) It's on a first come, first serve basis, as we have a very limited number.

Got a kindle version and feeling left out on the signing? Have you heard of Authorgraph? We're signed up for it and you can get a personal message from us fixed to your kindle copy :)

Author Kara Leigh Miller reviews Becoming Red

Kara Leigh Miller, author of  'The Aurora Island Resort' series and 'Never Date a Cop' posted her review of Becoming Red on her website, Kick Start Your Heart Romance today

"When I first started reading, I was convinced this book would be lucky to get 2 Kicks from me, but now here I am trying to decide whether it deserves 4 or 4.5 Kicks. This was one wild ride. Hang on and read on..."
"For me, this story didn't start until Chapter 14/15...Once I got past all that stuff in the beginning, I could not put this book down."
"Holy! Friggin'! Hell! OMG! WTF! I cannot believe they did that."
"I fell in love with Ashling and Connal. I was rooting for both of them throughout and yes, I even cried. Three times. I was shocked by some of the twists that the plot took. My mind is still reeling over this story. And the ending? I'm both shocked, worried, and pissed off! "
"To Jess Raven and Paula Black: I'm on my knees, begging, and pleading for you to please send me book two for review. As a reader, I'm hooked. As an author, I'm envious of what you've accomplished with this book ..." 
"I have truly enjoyed reading Becoming Red and I have every intention of recommending it to a lot of people."

Kara's Rating: 4.5 Kicks to the Heart

Bookish Temptations reviews Becoming Red

"A paranormal book that also features some great erotica...the story these two authors have crafted is fresh and original...Connal instantly attracts...sexy and mysterious...Ash is independant and feisty...a great deal of humor...fast-paced action, a must for any great paranormal book, and the writing is very descriptive. 'Big Bad' and 'Little Red' will take on a whole new meaning once you've read this book." 

Rating: Four Loved It Hearts From Tamie at Bookish Temptations

Reading Lark after Dark reviews Becoming Red

"At last, a fresh new take in paranormal mythology and world building has arrived. Black and Raven are a new paranormal author duo who have struck gold in the originality stakes with their first novel!"
"Cracking plot and oh yeah, the sex was hot. That is all."

The Full Moon Erotic Flash Fiction/Roleplay Event

When? Every month during the full moon.

Got the Full Moon Fever? Come join us for our very first Full Moon Erotic Flash Fiction/Roleplay Party

Here’s how it works:

During the full moon, we will be hosting flash fiction erotic shorts and role-play storylines on our twitter lists.

Perhaps you’ve written an erotic short story involving your characters that you would like us to show-case for you on twitter.

Want to share a steamy scene from something you’re writing?

Perhaps you have a steamy DM storyline you’ve been secretly dying to share on timeline, but it never seemed appropriate or didn’t fit into your main story arc?

Or maybe you’d prefer a time-slot for some spontaneous sexy roleplay with your mate?
Maybe it’s not written yet, but this event will inspire you.

Original or fanfic characters are permitted. All writers and/or roleplayers, canon or non, rogues or family members are very welcome to participate. It’s an opportunity to show off your writing outside of your normal following and maybe gain some new readers. There is no competition involved, this is pure entertainment.

As far as content is concerned, anything consensual goes, (just nothing illegal please, eg. abuse, rape, pedophilia will not be hosted). We are pitching to an 18+ audience.

The brief is for erotic short stories, (full moon entirely optional) guideline length about 1500 words or under, that can be posted in tweet form to twitter, over about one hour to ninety minutes maximum.

We’ll agree a time slot that suits you to post, we’ll announce your story to timeline and either we can either tweet your story for you, or add your twitter account to the Full Moon Party list so that followers can read along.

If you tweet from your own account, you’ll need to be unlocked for the duration, so that all our followers have the opportunity to follow your story through our lists.

If you prefer us to post your story for you in tweet form, with full author acknowledgement, or anonymously, that can be done too, from the @FullMoonErotica account.

Got a photo to go with your story? Send it to us and we'll post it too.

Afterwards, we'll promote your blog/site/tumblr so that interested followers know where to find your work, and if you wish, we will post your fiction or storyline to our blog’s Full Moon Event page and share the link through our twitter accounts.  

Have we piqued your interest? Tempted you inner exhibitionist from the shadows?

Drop us a DM to @FullMoonErotica or an email to
ravenandblack@gmail.com and tell us the usernames of the account(s) you would like to tweet your story from and your preferred performance time (include a timezone please) on Sunday January 27th or Monday January 28th

Who are we? A pair of role-player dinosaurs turned writers, who love to share our erotic stories and to read yours.

Why the full moon? Because it ties in with the release of our first novel Becoming Red. We will be contributing some flash fiction of our own featuring some of the characters from the Becoming world.
