Giveaway (US/Int): Satan Jack is back and chatting about his lady love!

by davincikittieJanuary 15, 2013

Let’s give a warm welcome to Debra Anastasia, your 2012 Readers Choice Most Engaging Author!

A huge thanks for letting Satan Jack and I take over GraveTells today. We had a blast last time. Today we talk about Bittersweet Seraphim.

It was dark in my house. I was all alone except for my three nimrod dogs and my hairy pussy…cat. Technically, at lunchtime during a weekday it shouldn’t be this dark. The weather forecasters were tripping all over themselves to report the thick black clouds that filled the sky.

It’s almost as if a volcano exploded, the air is so thick. We’re cautioning citizens to remain calm and stay indoors.

I went to my door and pulled it open. I stepped onto my front porch without fear. I knew exactly what they didn’t. This smoky-cloud filled day wouldn’t be explained by science. The clouds were magic and the man who created them was coming for me.

My dogs began barking so I closed the door. I took a sip of the hot cocoa that warmed my hand.

The dark clouds began to funnel, swirling like a silent tornado. I sat down on the porch swing as I watched the cosmic anomaly. The light gray smoke lifted to join the funnel. The air was filled with the gorgeous scent of his favorite hand-rolled cigarettes.

I associate the smell with my beloved Satan. Finally, the silent storm was filled with the sound of his million-year-old motorcycle boots. By the time I could see him, he was at the top of the path to my front door. The immense funnel tapered from the sky until it was the size of his palm, which he held outstretched.

He held it up to his sexy mouth and blew it kiss-style in my direction. The funnel hit me and embraced me like a hug. Every part of my body was massaged. I tilted my head and saw the gorgeous blue sky beyond his manufactured terror.

After taking a breath I scolded him, “Jack. Knock it off.”

He smirked when he snapped for the smoke, his favorite pet. Instantly it reverted to dark clouds and smoky fog. Surely the news was freaking out. I heard the warning sirens and rolled my eyes.

“Baby, you know I like to make an entrance.” He lit his cigarette and walked slowly to my front steps.

“They think there was a tornado. That’s why the sirens are going off.”

He motioned to a spot next to me on the porch swing. I nodded permission.

“Those sirens are to alert the ladies that my gorgeous dick is in their vicinity.”

“Funny.” I took another sip.

Jack’s dimple showed on his cheek as he swiped my mug and took a gulp from my cup.

“Crap.” He made a sour face while still managing to look handsome. “Thought this was coffee. What grown woman drinks hot cocoa?” He pulled out a flask and added a splash of evil into my childish beverage.

“The kind that finished your frigging story despite everything else.” I took my cup back and wrinkled my nose. It was most likely rum he’d mixed in.

I balanced the cup on my knee. I knew he was here to pass judgment. I’d made him wait too long for the sequel to Crushed Seraphim or as Jack referred to the Seraphim series “My freaking life, god damn it.”

Jack hadn’t been patient but there had been extenuating circumstances that led to my delay, which is probably the only reason he hadn’t tortured me into ending his story. He did stalk my Twitter friends while trying to find me the last few weeks before Bittersweet Seraphim was released. Luckily my girls never gave me up.

“Your house looks nice. And you didn’t even have to sell your soul for it.” He slung his arm around my shoulders, leather jacket squeaking and groaning.

I turned and looked into his endless brown eyes, “I’ll tell you what, I felt like I did some days. That one contractor, crap, I bet you’ll see him in Hell one day.”

“It’s all good now though. You’re happy?”

I nodded. “We’re home. I’ll never take that for granted as long as I live. What about you? Is it all good now? You’re happy?”

He took a drag from his cigarette. It was a while before he answered. I saw a wide array of emotions play across in his face.

“Your imagination is laced with some of the scariest crap I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t go there again.” He took his last drag and stubbed the butt out in his palm.

“You would too. For her you’d do anything.” I was referring to the love of his life, the gorgeous cursing angel Emma.

He stood and leaned against the porch railing. “And you put me through everything.” The smoke in the distance began getting choppy. Jack was angry.

I took a drink of the cocoa. It was horrible now, but I swallowed anyway, feeling the burn.
“It only happens one way in my head.” I wasn’t about to apologize and he knew it. “Answer the question. I answered yours. Are you happy?”

He shrugged. “It ended the way it had to.”

I heard police sirens in the distance. “That’ll be the cops trying to find the tornado you caused.”

He ignored my warning. “So are we done? You and I? Is this it?”

I was unexpectedly choked up. “Pretty much, I guess. You want more?”

Jack laughed. “Not really. Seriously, kissing a dude? Where did that come from?”

I laughed with him. I knew he hated that particular scene. “Well, I never say never. You’re a favorite Jack. For me when I have you in my head, feeding me lines I’m excited. Thank you. Thanks for being the most unexpected devil I never saw coming.” I wiped a tear from my eye.

He held out his hand and pulled me off the bench. “You did good lady.” Before I knew it, I was in a bear hug. “I’m here if you need me.” He pointed to the center of my chest.

I nodded, not trusting myself to say more. He kissed my forehead and disappeared. The smoke and dark clouds drained down the sides of the sky, save for one little patch of fog on my front lawn that remains there still.

Thanks again! Feel free to comment, Jack might even drop by to answer your questions.

Go here to check out Jack and Debra’s last guest spot on GT
the one that earned Ms. Anastasia Readers Choice Most Engaging Author of 2012, Readers Choice Favorite Author of February 2012, and see all Jack’s sexy antics with the readers!

Suffering is worst when you’re doing it alone. But Emma’s taking Hell like an angel-even though her languishing began with having her seraph wings torn from her back. Now her worst enemy lords his body and his evil desires over her while she tries desperately to remember the words to her favorite prayer.

As Devil, Jack used to have Hell and its women humming like well-oiled machines. Too bad he’s nowhere near the place now. Stuck on Earth as a human, he must work with a ragtag team of exiled minions and half-breeds to save the angel who’s become all that matters. Rescuing a seraph is the plan, but breaking into Hell means letting evil things out. Once they collide, minions and angels converge in the battle of the ages: good versus evil. But which side is which?

Will Jack destroy the world as he fights to save Emma, his true and timeless love, from a damnation he designed? An action-packed sequel to Crushed Seraphim, this tale reveals-time and again-what happens when the heart’s deepest desires break free. With a story both sizzling and sensual, emotional and enigmatic, Debra Anastasia invites readers to join a battle with nothing less than love on the line.

You can find Bittersweet Seraphim at AmazonBarnes&Noble

How does a foul-mouthed angel end up as the last hope for all of Heaven and Earth? When Seraph Emma is maimed and tossed from Heaven by a rogue angel who’s taken charge, she fears she’ll never be allowed to return.

Tasked with the impossible job of showing the self-loathing (and not even human!) Jason his worth, Emma is sure she’s doomed to fail.

Meanwhile, having wormed his way into Heaven, the corrupt Everett has trapped God in Hell and has designs on unleashing evil everywhere. Fortunately, if there’s one thing Emma can’t do (in addition to minding her language), it’s give up. Determined to save Jason and get back to Heaven-even if it means going to Hell-Emma’s plan is simple yet impossible: trick the Devil to save God.

What she doesn’t count on is the devotion and, well, humanity she finds in Jason; the spirit, hidden compassion, and raw sex appeal within the Devil; and the vulnerability of her own heart.

With the help of two unlikely allies, she’ll wage the battle for Heaven. But will Emma be sidetracked by a new sort of heaven along the way?What’s truly more dangerous? Falling from Heaven, or falling in love?

Debra Anastasia has twisted a fast-paced tale of intimate relationships with literally universal impact. Rich with humor and electrified by attraction, this novel offers a playfully off-beat take on the good and evil that make up the world.

About the author

Debra Anastasia is busy, just like every other mom. There’s dinner, the dogs, the kids, and their homework. The laundry pile turns into a big, heaping monster. When the clothes finally make it into the washer, it gets unbalanced and puts on an elaborate show before it cuts out. This crazy job that never ends is her first love and her crowning achievement.

Her writing started a decent handful of years ago when along with the dogs, cat, kids, and husband, the voices of characters started whispering stories in Debra’s ear. Insomnia was the gateway for the plots that wouldn’t give up, wouldn’t let go. In the shower, a twist would take hold and–dripping and frenzied–she’d find somewhere, anywhere to write it down.

Debra grew up in New York and got a bachelor’s degree in political science at SUNY New Paltz. At the start of her marriage, she moved to southern Maryland with her husband. She still doesn’t trust crabs and all their legs, though everyone else in her family thinks they’re delicious. Her favorite hobbies include knitting, painting furniture and wall murals, and slapping clowns.

Omnific Publishing published her debut novel, #1 in Kindle best selling comic fiction Crushed Seraphim, followed by Poughkeepsie.

    I haven’t read any Debra Anastasia Books, but I have seen many positive reviews on them. It is only a matter of time before I do read them.

    Satan Jack seems like a delicious rogue and wow, that was an interest. I live in a tornado alley so he’d definitely have me scurrying if he made a grand entrance here. ;D

    Thank you so much for the generous giveaway opportunity.

    I have always thought God was all powerful. How did the devil trapped God in Hell? Kind of scary that evil would win over good.

    Hi Jack, very beautiful post. Thank you for the giveaway.

    The trailer is really good.

    • January 16, 2013 at 7:38 am

      Hello sweet Artemis,

      The trailer is very good, I particularly like the smoke and the song. Shall we dance to that music? Your hair smells lovely today.

    Gah! You kill me! That was entirely unfair to not confirm OR deny that there MAY be something more from Jack (read – my interpretation was such lol, or maybe that’s just me being hopeful that we haven’t heard the last from that unlikely group of beings) ….I mean this in the nicest way possible..and without euphemism….YOU SUCK! lol j/k I wub you!

    • January 16, 2013 at 7:40 am

      Gorgeous Michelle,

      She does suck, doesn’t she? I think you and I should find a quiet bar and toast to how horrible she is. I’d love to know what your lipstick tastes like.

  • Isabella

    Never thought I would root for the Devil much less be intrigued by him. You are coming back Jack, aren’t you? Maybe as an angel this time?

    • January 16, 2013 at 8:39 am

      I could never be an angel. With these skills? Seriously Heaven wouldn’t know what to do with me. How about we chat? In bed? With no words?

      • Isabella
        January 16, 2013 at 8:51 am

        I beg to differ, Angels are very sensual creatures. You would fit right in. Plus I can see you do have a good soul. We can chat, in bed if you’d like. But words we will use not our bodies. Until I’m the only one you share a bed with and I’m the only one your heart belongs to.

    I feel like I’m going to tear up with Debra. I loved both books so much. The story could end now, and I would be okay because I wouldn’t feel like questions went unanswered. But I would love a third book because I enjoyed all of the characters so much and I think Jack’s and Emma’s story could go so many places.
    By the way Jack, you’re hot and I’d love to flirt with you, but your girl has some friends in high places. Don’t want to get the big guy on my bad side. 😉

    For those of you who haven’t read these books, you are missing out! Excellent writing, unique and well thought out storyline, and characters you love (satan Jack) and those you want to kill all by yourself (Everett). These stories are great, Poughkeepsie is even better! Check them out. You wont be disappointed!

  • January 16, 2013 at 11:16 am

    I love having Debra and Satan Jack visit us here on GraveTells!! You guys are so gracious and always make us feel special. As a reader I LOVE that. As the GT admin I ADORE it! Much <3 to you both. Especially you, Jack, who looks suspiciously like my favorite pirate…

    • January 16, 2013 at 4:37 pm

      Sweet Kittie,
      That pirate wears my face! What big eyes you have…better to see what’s in my pants with.

      And Debra is making me tell you it is our pleasure, but I rather it was your pleasure we were talking about!

  • Martha Lawson
    January 16, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    Always lovely to see you again Jack. Wonder what you and I can do with those bracelets? Hmmm…
    Sending several of my friends your way after warming them up with Poughkeepsie. Most of them are newbies, so be nice to them. I know you will in your own way.
