P.G. Forte. Thankful Blog and Contest

This year what I’m most thankful for is family. I know, that doesn’t sound very original, does it? I think most of us are thankful for family most of the time and especially this time of year. But the last couple of years have been challenging for my family. Both my own family and my husband’s have been dealing with aging parents, with dementia, with grief, injury, illness, with caregiving—all the fun stuff we’ve mostly managed to avoid.  

It has not been an easy time, but it’s been made immeasurably more easy thanks in no small part to the way that we and our siblings have dealt with each other. I’m on a bunch of caregiver lists. I know how often families fall apart at times like this. And I know how alone you can get to feeling when you’re one of the primary caregivers for a parent who’s failing.
That’s why I’m endlessly thankful for my sister, my brothers, my husband’s sisters and brother—and all their very wonderful spouses for their concern, their compassion, and—lest it seem like we were the only ones who were affected or involved (we weren’t!)—all their time, energy, patience and hard work they put into making this stressful time more bearable for all of us.  
I never realized how lucky I was.

Coincidentally, my new book, To Curse the Darkness, which releases on Tuesday is the sixth book in my Children of Night series—all about a very solid vampire family. Yeah, not really a slice of real life, but whatever. Distraction is good. lol! Still, the Fischer-Quintano vampires do care deeply about each other, so I guess art does imitate life sometime.
I’ll be giving away a signed print copy of the first book in the series, In the Dark to one lucky commenter.  
I’d like to wish everyone a very happy holiday season. Hug your family.  
About To Curse the Darkness:

A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing…

Children of Night, Book 6

When Conrad goes full disclosure on the twins’ heritage, Julie isn’t all that surprised. She’s already figured most of it out. But Armand’s shock over learning the woman he loves was born vampire drives him away for space to think. The chasm between Conrad and Damien yawns wider than ever as Conrad grapples with the pain he’s unintentionally inflicted.

As all hell breaks loose at home, Marc is dangerously out of touch on a trip down the coast to find Elise and bring her home—though she insists he’s a fool to trust her.

Armand, still struggling with his own feelings of guilt, inadequacy and betrayal, returns to find the Fischer-Quintano house in chaos. Julie is determined to go ahead with her plans to save Georgia for Conrad’s sake, though the knowledge she seeks—and the venom-drenched ritual she must endure to get it—could cause her to lose her mind. If not her life.

Product Warnings

Handle with care. Contents are under pressure. Contains past violence, present violence, future potential violence, including, but by no means limited to, matricide, fratricide…possibly even patricide. In short, pretty much everything you’d expect to find in a multi-generational vampire love story.

About PG Forte:

PG Forte inhabits a world only slightly less strange than the ones she creates. Filled with serendipity, coincidence, love at first sight and dreams come true.

She wrote her first serialized story when she was still in her teens. The sexy, ongoing adventure tales were very popular at her oh-so-proper, all girls, Catholic High School, where they helped to liven up otherwise dull classes...even if her teachers didn't always think so.

Originally a Jersey girl, PG now resides with her family on the extreme left coast where she writes contemporary and paranormal romance in a variety of sub-genres.

I absolutely love The Year Without a Santa Claus. I look a little bit like the heat miser when I'm angry...
