Ayla Hammond has come home. After years as a lone wolf in a self-imposed exile, she's rejoining the pack and trying to mend fences with her parents. She's convinced them to accept her girlfriend, but can a lone wolf change her ways? As if homecoming wasn't hard enough, Ayla also can't help getting involved in a missing person case. With pressure to solve the case mounting from the pack alphas, Ayla is starting to question where her loyalties lie—and if a return to the pack she left behind is really what she wants.

As Halloween is rapidly approaching, I thought I might shine the spotlight on one of the supporting characters from SILVER KISS - drag queen werewolf Glory. Read on for Glory's Scary Story...


Midnight. The fire burned low in the hearth. Shannon was half asleep in my lap. We'd all told our Halloween stories except Glory. Cannibalism, ghosts, and witches so far, with Vince throwing in a psycho nurse for good measure. But we all knew Glory's story would be the best.

She patted her beehive and smiled at us. 'Did I ever tell you how I lost my orange Carvela heels?'

'It was a poker game, wasn't it?' Joel asked. 'One seedy night in Vegas, you said.'

'Those were my cerise Louboutins,' she corrected. She sipped her wine and cleared her throat. 'But I was in America. Nevada, in fact. I'd been out for a run and was just putting my clothes back on when I saw the UFO. An eerie green light in the sky, getting brighter and closer with every second, lighting up the night. I was horrified, sweeties, obviously. I could not abide being abducted. All that probing.' She shivered theatrically.

'I wanted to run, but I wasn't dressed and I certainly wasn't going to run across the desert in the dead of night half-naked. Not with aliens in pursuit. So I dumped my stuff and hid behind a rock, hoping they'd go find some redneck hick or something. You know, like they do. But the craft landed just a few feet from my rock and these two aliens... Oh!' More exaggerated shivering.

'Little green men?' Shannon yawned.

'Little red men,' Glory corrected haughtily. 'And the first thing the little monsters did? They started poking through my clothes! With their creepy long fingers and their weird little mouths, just pawing at my clothes.' She clutched her hands to her chest. 'Diesel jeans, people! Covered in sticky alien fingerprints!'

'What did you do?' Vince asked, toasting a marshmallow in the fire embers.

'Well, I wasn't going to let them ruin my jeans! I leapt out and grabbed my clothes and started running like holy hell.'

'Did they follow?' I asked. The image in my head was somewhere between slapstick and tragedy.

'God, yes. And let me tell you, Ayla, aliens are fast as any wolf. They were gaining on me, making this awful high-pitched noise. Probably trying to hypnotise me, but I wasn't stopping for anything, sweeties. And then one grabbed my shoulder.'

Glory paused to snatch a marshmallow, leaving us all in suspense for a few long seconds.

'What did you do?' Joel asked.

'I swung my Carvela heels in the ugly freak's face! Spike heels are a girl's best friend, let me tell you. I caught the alien right in his big, freaky eye. Little creep just keeled over. Eyes are the alien's weak spots, obviously. I battered them both with the shoes and got my ass out of there.'

'And the shoes?' Vince prompted.

Glory wiped an imaginary tear from her eye. 'Probably a souvenir on an alien's mantelpiece now, darling. Such a waste. They clashed horribly with the alien.'

  1. I'd choose to become a Panda, for no real reason other than it's my favorite animal. However for practicalities sake I'd say I would like to be an Eagle, they can fly, have great vision, sharp beaks, and they can fly like really really high so yeah that awesome factor. :)

  2. Thanks for giveaway

    1. And I have thinkg for phoenix. Love them.

  3. I would shift into a wolf. They are loyal beautiful creatures. Thanks for sharing.

  4. one of the big cats

  5. I would shift into a tiger, they are stealthy

  6. I would absolutely love to shift into a phoenix! They're so beautiful and I love what they represent. prettylittlepages[at]gmail[dot]com

  7. I always thought I would love to shift into a powerful panther or bear. Seeing you mention The Phoenix however , makes me change my mind. The Phoenix is absolutely gorgeous and powerful. The myth surrounding it rising from the ashes captivates me. So I now would love to makeshift into the Lovely Phoenix.

  8. I used to want to be something big like a panther or wolf, but since I live in a large urban area that would be a good way to get dead. So I'd say something like a house cat or mouse where I could sneak into places or be mostly ignored.

  9. Love the excerpt it was hilarious. I would love to be a bear their quiet and when riled can turn deadly. lavidabrisco(at)yahoo(dot)com

  10. I would go with dragon.

  11. I'd be a dragon shifter.

  12. I'd be a black panther, or a white tiger with blue eyes!! I think both are beautiful creatures! <3

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Take care & I hope you have a great day! =)
