When the Moon is Full…

On Sunday, something amazing happened. Sure, there was the super moon and lunar eclipse. I made sure to take some pictures, though they didn’t turn out as nice as I’d hope. But that’s not the amazing thing I’m talking about.

Dani released her book.

I’ve mentioned Dani as my cover model for the Cera Chronicles, including This World Bites, and the friend who neatly plans her chapters. I met her a little over two years ago when she joined my critique group, and then she started coming to the early Friday morning write-ins. I admit, I have a bit of a girl crush on her.

Pure of Heart released on Sunday to coincide with the full moon. Can you guess why?

Pure of Heart CoverIt’s not easy being a werewolf. After claiming her first (and hopefully last) victim, Harper thinks she has it all figured out. Her job keeps her busy. Her family locks her up during the full moon. She’s even friends with the local vet who is always armed with tranquilizers.
But her fragile grip on the situation can’t last. Not when newcomer Emerson moves into Harper’s small town and sets the wolf free. Now Harper must figure out what the wolf wants, and stop it before she ends up with more blood on her teeth.

You can pick it up on Amazon and add it on Goodreads.

About the Author
Danielle Parker is a musician and lives in Boise, Idaho with her dog and her boyfriend. She has been writing and publishing short stories online since 2004. As a child she told her parents that when she grew up she was going to be an author. When she’s not writing she enjoys working on cars and riding motorcycles. Despite the rumors, she is not a werewolf.

I’m happy to say this is a good read. If you like sarcastic werewolves, self-discovery alongside unexpected romance, and girls who don’t trust themselves not to eat people, then I’d recommend this for your book shelf.

Do you like werewolf stories? Did you see the super blood moon? Have you checked out Dani’s book yet?

  1. Oooh. It sounds good. I love the blurb. And the cover is awesome too.

  2. Congratulations to Dani! She’s famous on covers and in the pages now.

    • Alex, the way you worded that kicked my dirty mind into gear. 😛

  3. Sounds amazing. I do like werewolf books, although I haven’t read a ton of them. (What can I say? Vampires a cooler. Literally.) Going to have to check this one out.

  4. I like me some werewolf stories! Very cool to sync the release date with the supermoon– and the blood moon (I saw it)! Congrats to Dani!

  5. Christine Rains says werewolf stories do well. Major congrats to Dani!

  6. Congrats to Dani! It sounds like the two of you have a very beneficial friendship. 🙂 I’ve been reading more and more werewolf stories lately and have to say that I really enjoy them. Pure of Heart sounds really good.

  7. Ooh…nice cover. And if you say it’s a good read, I believe you. I’ll check it out. Besides, who doesn’t love a sarcastic werewolf who can’t trust herself not to eat people? Truly. Awesome. (Yes, I did see the Lunar Eclipse/Harvest Moon–it was gorgeous.)

  8. I saw the moon. It was super f*cking creepy.

    I’m not well-versed in werewolf lore, but I’ve been digging the idea non-standard lyncanthropes lately. I’ve heard wereseals, weregroundhogs and werekoalas bandied about and I cackle with glee.

    Congratulations to Dani!

  9. Congrats, Dani! Sounds like a great story. 🙂

  10. Like a clever werewolf story, and a cool werewolf. Need to add this one to my Must Read list. Fan of Seth Green’s Oz werewolf in Buffy series.

    Oh and what is it with Boise and all these writers? The water in the Boise River? Will have to move there and float.

    • We writers seem to find each other around here. I could list off a number I know. 😀

  11. so awesome! I love it. and yep I saw the full blood moon and lunar eclipse. Long Island got really lucky it wasn’t cloudy. I had the best view from my side bedroom window. 🙂

  12. Releasing a werewolf book on a day when everyone’s paying attention to the moon is a brilliant idea. ^_^ Hope her book does well.

    • Oh, and it’s not your beta-reading (listening?) method I found bizarre – it’s having to make my book into an enormous plain text file. 😛 Never done that before….

  13. Yay! Exciting stuff! And hurray for Dani 🙂

  14. I’m not a huge werewolf story fan, but I have family who is, so I always make note of new scary fanged books. Thanks, Loni
