Welcome Skhye Moncrief

I'd like to introduce a friend and fellow author Skhye Moncrief. Welcome, Skhye -

Many thanks to Patsy for having me over! My latest release, a werewolf space opera, is being released Friday, February 18th!!! I'm so excited my brain just can't think beyond the book. So, I decided to have a little quiz... Just for fun. But oh so revealing. Let's get in the mood. Close your eyes. Inhale deeply. Exhale. Let all that stress out. Feel your muscles relax.. What if your psychic abilities manifested just a little more prominently than those of everyone else in the population?

Psychic werewolves are saving the universe. And they're recruiting. Read chapter 1, http://www.newconceptspublishing.com/skhyemoncriefbooks.html,
to learn how to avoid being inducted into the war!

Of course, you might be gungho about joining the Blood Wars...
Do you have what it takes to become an elite were-assassin? Run through this checklist to determine if you've got the right stuff to keep Earth safe from the evil emperor's reign of mind control:

1. Are you into that legendary conflict between werewolves and vampires?
2. Do you think--deep down inside in an intuitive, rather instinctual way--that something is going to happen on Winter Solstice 2012? (You aren't alone. Many cultures around the world think something's going down... And the universe's free thinkers are determined to see it doesn't happen.)
3. Can you read minds, levitate objects, remote view, heal with your touch, sense truth with your gut, etc.?
4. Have you been told you are ADHD or a labeled a Violet Child?
5. Have you experienced lost time or alien-abduction nightmares?
6. Are you drawn to blood as if the substance somehow inherently exuded power?
7. Are you into Gothic anything?

If you answer yes to any of these points, read up on the Blood Wars at

Book 2 in the FERAL series: FERAL FLAW (available Feb 18th at


Sexual espionage never got any deadlier!

As the Blood Wars between psychic werewolves and vampires continue, Commander Goro’s deepest desire, his love, his promised mate, is taken from him in the worst possible manner. He learns she’s given birth to his arch enemy’s child, a deadly rumor for both his honor and her life. If he discovers she’s a sex spy, he’ll have to kill her. Now they must mate to disprove the rumor of sexual espionage. Although he’d postponed that moment of divine completion bonding their bodies through mystic sex and blood exchange to safeguard her from the treacherous game of manipulation—a game he and his intended play with everyone aboard his starship, he has no choice but to mate.

Just one problem stands in his way…

Psychokinetic earthling Crazy Darla, manipulator extraordinaire unequaled by none other than Goro, realizes the only way to survive the rumored lie is to run for her life. But there was always something more in her motives than fantasies of delicious sex with the man she’s craved for years. Even though those motives felt carnal. Something else, pure and, perhaps, metaphysical haunted her. Perhaps in his goddess, Destiny? She had to believe in those feelings of love. But to trust is to show weakness in handing over one’s fate to another who just might ritually disembowel you.

Who is playing whom in the battle of masterminds? Sexual espionage never got any deadlier. With the secret baby, bounty hunters, an entrancing crystal, and a space opera between werewolves and vampires forcing Goro and Darla into dark secluded corners, pushing them into carnal sexual interludes and dangerous blood exchanges fueled by the frenzied blood lust of were-mates, the future holds both promises and lies in the psychic war. And one wrong move means you’ve succumbed to the deadliest thing in the universe, your FERAL FLAW.

Reviews for Book 1 in the FERAL series: FERAL FASCINATIONS...

"FERAL FASCINATIONS ...a surprise and an exciting read. It's not an easy novel to summarize but take my word for it…a summary can't do it justice any way. You have to read—and enjoy it—for yourself!... There's a lot of sex in this one but it's neither intrusive nor too graphic and every thrust of it moves the plot. Both Kindrist and Straightarrow, as well as the other characters—even the Bible-quote spouting Darla—are drawn with sympathy and realism. Pithy dialogue—a lot of it going on inside Jake's head, give the novel just enough of a quirky nature to keep it from the run-of-the-mill storyline of alien-abductee-saves-Mankind-and-gets-girl. 5 Stars!" ~Tony-Paul http://www.tony-paul.com/

"This isn’t one of your brother’s Sci-Fi Books – it’s Rebel Mercenary meets Paranormal Alien Chick. ...Complex and well written, Ms. Moncrief seamlessly blended earth religion, new-age mysticism, paranormal events, shapeshifing rogue spies, and a who-done-it twist. The love scenes were not overly explicit, but very romantic & emotionally heart felt." ~LynnMarie, HEA Reviews

"Feral Fascinations is one of those werewolf science fiction novels that captures the imagination. Skhye Moncrief has done an amazing job of bringing a new world out and showing it to the reader with such amazing clarity. ...An original novel many will enjoy as it combines both modern and futuristic elements twinned with horror... True horror and science fiction fans will take to this novel really well as the characters are fascinating and well worth reading about. The sex scenes are not descriptive, but leave plenty to the imagination so the reader can make of the scenes what they will." ~Sandra, Romance at the Heart Magazine

Hi, Patsy. Just in case someone reads the blurb at NCP... They've posted the blurb for book 3 FERAL FEVER. You'll have to read the blurb here if you're interested in purchasing a copy. I've sent in a note to hopefully get the cover info fixed for readers. :) But, you get a sneak peek at Book 3!!!

Hope you're having a wonderful Saturday, Patsy!

Beth Caudill said...

Hey Skhye

Congrats on the new release. Love werewolves in space. :)

Skhye said...

Thanks, Beth! Have you pushed your weres into space yet???

Brandy B aka Brandlwyne said...

Hi Skhye. The only think I could come up with about the crystal skulls is that they could be used to amplify psychic/magical energy and either help prevent 2010 from happenning or help it along...

Your books sound very cool and I put them on my book lists :)


Skhye said...

Good guess, Brandy. I'm not spilling the beans yet though. Thanks for stopping by!

P.L. Parker said...

So mysterious Skhye! Since I'm crazy about vampires and werewolves, and I love SciFi - I will have to check these out.

Skhye said...

Thanks, Patsy!

Skhye said...

Hey, Patsy! I see your next release is with Damnation Press. Or is it with Eternal Press? Either way, I've seen some INTERESTING books over there! You'll have to tell me all about that press too. ;)

Linda Henderson said...

Congratulations on your new release. The only thing I can think of is they block psychic abilities and protect the earth.

Skhye said...

Excellent guess. I've got a few days before I can post the answer. But loved that, Linda!

catslady said...

Oh I think I totally agree with No. 2 - something is at least going to be happening if not quite the end!! Congrats on your new release. All sounds fantastic!!

Maeve Greyson said...

I'm definitely going to follow this series. Sounds like awesome reads.

Skhye said...

Thanks, Catslady & Maeve!

Catslady, a futurist/statistician says just that we think something will happen makes something happen. Kinda Buddhist as well! But fun to sit back and watch. I'm a huge fan of doom & gloom documentaries. So, I've probably heard it all... And somehow put it into this series. LOL

Karen Michelle Nutt said...

Popping in to say good morning, Skhye.

Sci-fi, vampires and werewolves are my favorites. Sounds like a winner series to me.

I wish you the best!

Skhye said...

Thanks, Karen. :)

Linda LaRoque said...

I didn't know you had a vampire book out. I'm so excited. Will check it out and good luck with sales!

Skhye said...

Thanks, Linda! I'm waiting on that next Native-American hero of yours!

Ilona Fridl said...

This series sounds great! So different from your run of the mill paranormal.

Skhye said...

Thanks, Ilona. It's definitely different. That's what gets me in trouble with marketing my stuff! Thanks for stopping by.

P.L. Parker said...

It is hard to jump back and forth, especially with several publishers - which I am finding out right now. I start to post, realize I'm on the wrong site so have to regroup. Confusting at times.

Skhye said...

LOL, Patsy. I almost did that with a WRP feature day at a yahoo group. I don't know if I could have claimed it was a mistake... I'm feeling for you.

P.L. Parker said...

LOL, Skhye - Life and times of the rich and famous . . .so to speak. Or maybe life and times of the not so rich and who knows who the heck I am.

Skhye said...

Patsy, thanks for having me over. :) ~Skhye
