Author Angelia Sparrow is well established in the Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender genre. So it was no surprise when her novel, ‘Power In The Blood’, was part of the selection for the 2012 Rainbow Awards. You can learn more about it here: http://elisa-rolle.livejournal.com/1529866.html

Teaser for ‘Power In The Blood’
“Oren Stolt understands the natural order better than most people. Vampires prey on humans and Undying keep the vampires’ numbers in check.

Until now.

Now, across the United States, vampire numbers are exploding, thanks to a new church. The Tabernacle of the Firstfruits preaches a Risen Lord and invites believers to follow Him in death and resurrection… quite literally.

In Memphis, the church is about to host its first conference, with an eye to converting the whole world to the vampiric gospel.

And all that stands between humanity and eternal night is Oren, his kids, and a thin line of insane immortals.” (Care Of Storm Moon Press,http://www.stormmoonpress.com/books/Power-In-the-Blood.aspx)

Her dayjob is as a truck-driver who lives quietly in the Mid South, and she perpetrates romance when not playing with her four kids or serving the two cats that own her and her long-suffering husband. Sometimes called the “Queen of Cross-Genre” she writes everything from Weird West (steampunk lesbian ranchers fighting zombies) to Dark Future Trucker Romance (a road trip across the Disunited States) to a popular Gay Christmas Werewolf short story series that included a Lovecraft pastiche. She has several novels and numerous short stories to her credit. Most of her current work can be found from Ellora’s Cave, Amber Quill and Pink Petal Books. (care of Imagicopter)


Angelia Sparrow can write children’s stories as easily a horror, without missing a beat. Writing the stories on her long drives, she usually has the meat of it worked out by the time she reaches her destination and is able to write it down. Of her many novels available, now two collections of her short stories are available – one for a limited time!

From Ink Stained Succubus:

Howl at the Mistletoe
(limited time)

A mixed bag of same sex romance, male and female, and horror. Gay Christmas werewolves, steampunk lesbians fighting zombies, a PI in an urban fantasy Memphis, kinky cosplayers, truckers of both sexes, and more.


Ten tales of lesbian adventure take you from the far reaches of the galaxy to the science fiction convention down the road, from a steampunk west to a world where the Confederacy obtained nukes. Come along and fall in love with a waitress or a pirate or Medusa herself.

About the author:
Angelia was born in 1967 in Kansas City, MO, to Ron Moss, a billing clerk, and Sue Wymer, a nurse. She is their only mutual child, although she has two half-sisters, one on each side.

Writer Angelia Sparrow will be at the first, of what hopes will become an annual literary event that features Gay Romance in Literature. “Get Steamy in the Big Easy” is about bringing the author and the reader together for an event unlike any other. From the Bourbon Orleans hotel, located in the famous French Quarter to the River Boat book signing cruise on the Creole Queen, there are organized events and parties taking full advantage of the location while providing a multitude of opportunities to mix with readers, other authors, and publishers.

There will be no seminars or workshops – this is about showcasing the authors and publishers.

Join them down in New Orleans, October 13 – 16 of 2011, to get Steamy in the Big Easy.
