Thank You SR for breeding Kindness, Love, Redemption, Gratitude, and Appreciation. We can't help but catch the flame of your spirit and want to be more kind, charitable, humble, and snarky just like our author! You inspire us daily through your writing and your daily tweeting and messages through social media. You do little to promote yourself so we gladly take a part in spreading the word about your books and the causes you do promote on a regular basis. Every Sunday you tell readers "Peace be with you." ✌ Peace be with you as well dear author and friend!!!!

PS: That was so much fun! Cran And Iris actually talked to the point of having to be cut off. ;-)

Here are the questions they asked us to prepare with Iris's answers and I'll add Cran's soon!

Activities for the party.

- When did you discover and read his books?
I discovered SR's writing around March 2010 and the muse Iris was born. I read GI for the first time the first second I could get my hands on it whenever jut was first published by Omnifics in the Spring of 2011. GI and GRa came out quickly. Shortly after this The first rendition of Argyle Empire was born around August 2011 . We were @TheGISeriesFans on Twitter then, started by four of his original muses, Coco (it was her idea) Mango Cran and Iris. That Fall Berkley publishing picked up his books and they were re-released and he announced he would write a 3rd book in the series for his fans. GRe then came out. I have several copies of each book he has written, some signed and some with signed book plates. And one very special GI that is my muse copy. That was Cran's idea to use it as a year book of sorts when the muses gathered together.

- How long did it take you to read the first book/series?
I was reading it as it was being written. I believe the first 20-30 chapters were up when My elder sis turned me on to FF and his was o R of the first 4 stories I read and caught up to. He was alway very regular about his posting schedule. Teaser Tuesday, and Saturday 9:00 AM EST (6:00 AM my PST) it was the highlight of our week.
When he announced he was going to try to get the story published the idea came with mixed reviews but I was alway a supporter of the idea. It was so exciting. I read them all ASAP they were released. And I have all renditions, print versions, kindle versions and audible versions.
As I said some signed some not.

-What have you learned from the SR?
SR is as much if not more of a teacher than his Professor and his Julia are. I have learned so much from him. His generous, kind, humble, charitable nature is contagious. You can't help to want to Lear from him, fall to your feet, or rather stool ;-) and just get ready for story time with SR. He is such a gifted story teller. I admire his ability to remain a bit of a ghost. Disappearing into his fox den, down the rabbit hole, beamed up by the tractor beams, into a wardrobe and to a portal to Middle earth, and I respect his privacy. This doesn't keep me from wondering about his mystery. I often think of the Christian Slater and Samantha Mathis film "Pump Up The Volume." In the film Christian is Mark, who runs a pirate radio station. Nora is his biggest fan, and as she listens, she adds details about Mark on a poster on her bedroom wall. It reminds me of how I feel about SR.

- How has reading and interacting with the Boss SR changed your life?

He is like the older brother I never had and I'm proud to be a part of the SR Fan Family. Because that is truly what his stories has created. A world wide family of readers. I'm an academic myself, but for the beginning of life. I'm an early interventionist and I work with kids from birth-3years old. I love learning from SR. And he truly has added to my life and has made me a life long learner and a lifetime reader. I truly wasn't that before. My learning disability makes it difficult to read. I'm still slow and I can't spell well. I was one that would wait for the film. But when I finished my Masters, I was finally ready to read for pleasure and that has grown in this community. I never thought I would be a contemporary romance fan, but here I am! The greatest gift SR has given me is this community. I love the muses and fellow fans I have met both online and some
In real life. I gladly contour to promote his and other independent authors.

- Using 3 words for each, how would you describe the Boss and his books?
SR- Kind, Humble, Charitable
GI- Flame, Dragon, Maia
GRa-love, miscommunication, soul-searching
GRe-redemption, life partners, family
the Prince- connection, underworld, bridge
The Raven- transformation, Inner beauty, reawaken
The Shadow- darkness, protection revenge
The Roman ???

-5 Reasons you love SR aka the Boss.
He's a talented writer and storyteller and I love reading him.

He is charitable, spiritual, humble, generous, and kind

He appreciates and listens to his readers and fans

He has been able to keep his identity protected and private. I respect that.

He is an inspiration to his fans and other aspiring authors

The Shadow Resease Day! February 2, 2016

We are so excited that the day is finally here!
SR's The Shadow that has been lurking has now arrived and is coming out of the darkness.

(picture edit by Iris~Elli)

The Shadow Synopsis:
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Gabriel trilogy comes the hotly anticipated follow-up to The Raven, a sensual novel set in Florence featuring the dangerously intoxicating coupling of Raven and William…

Raven Wood’s vampyre prince has returned, pledging his love and promising justice for every wrong done to her. In the wake of their reunion, Raven is faced with a terrible decision—allow the Prince to wreak vengeance against the demons of her past, or persuade him to stay his hand. But there is far more at stake than Raven’s heart...

A shadow has fallen over the city of Florence. Ispettor Batelli will not rest until he uncovers Raven’s connection to the theft of the priceless art from the Uffizi Gallery. And while the Prince hunts a traitor who sabotages him at every turn, he finds himself the target of the vampyres’ mortal enemy.

As he wages a war on two fronts, he will need to keep his love for Raven secret, or risk exposing his greatest weakness...

I love that SR opens with a dedication of thanks to his teachers. In my heart SR has the spirit of a teacher not just that of a writer. He has taught me so much through his writing and I admire his dedication to charity and bringing kindness and humor to the world. It makes me think of my teachers, my father, my favorite teacher, and I appreciate it as a teacher myself. ~ Iris~Elli~

The Shadow Teaser! by Sylvain Reynard 8/21/2015

Raven watched as William efficiently disrobed, neatly folding every article of black clothing (with the exception of underwear, which he never wore), and placing it on the vanity.

She brushed imaginary lint from her dress as he stood in front of her, naked.

He was under six feet in height, his body lean and strong. Raven took a moment to appreciate the definition of his muscled chest and abdomen, and the strong cast to his thighs. Not even a statue carved by the most talented sculptor could create a being with so much perfection.

His face put her in mind of an angel with intense, gray eyes that now looked at her expectantly.

She hid her face. “You said you loved me.”

“I did. What’s more, I meant it.”

“Love is a peculiar thing. I’ve seen it. I’ve even cheered for it. But I never believed it was for me.”

“Why shouldn’t a beautiful, fierce young woman hope for love?”

“Because, as you put it, human beings are shallow.”

“Love is deep.” His rich voice echoed in the bathroom.

“Love is having the power to destroy another person.”

William stepped closer. “Are you afraid of being destroyed?”

“Destroyed, consumed, betrayed.” She fidgeted with the neckline of her gown.

William placed his hand over hers, stilling it. “Love creates; it doesn’t destroy.”

His lips found the place where her neck met her shoulder. He kissed her leisurely, tracing the path of her bared collarbone with his mouth.

His fingers brushed her zipper. “Let me.”

He undid her dress, dropping it to the marble tiles.

Her bra followed. She was as naked as he.

His eyes roved her body appraisingly. His pale fingers caressed her cheek, her mouth, and her neck. His strong hands cupped her breasts, her abdomen, and her hips.

His gray eyes met hers.

“The power you describe is the power you have here.” He touched her forehead before moving his hand to cover her heart. “And here. It’s the power you have over me. Power I haven’t yielded to another since I was human.”

He brought his lips to her ear. “Your fears are shared.”

With a slow kiss on her neck, he led her into the shower, standing behind her underneath a tropical rainfall showerhead.

Raven closed her eyes and lifted her face, like a flower following the sun. The warm water soaked her hair and streamed down the generous curves of her body.

“I’ve never showered with another person. What happens next?” William rested his hands on her shoulders.

She wiped the water from her face.

“Whatever you want. Just don’t let me fall.”

William’s gaze dropped to her right leg, which she was favoring.

“Is the pain terrible?”

“It’s worse after I’ve been lying down. Sometimes I topple over.”

William spread his arm around her waist, drawing her back to his chest. “Then I must be sure to catch you.”

She kissed him, reaching up to run her fingers through his wet hair as the water poured down their shoulders.

Her motions were fraught with an eagerness born of love and affection and the relief of remembering she hadn’t lost him.

He was hers.

Even now, naked, with a myriad of flaws few men overlooked, he embraced her. He embraced her imperfections.

He loved her.

His cool hands scorched her skin, splaying fingers wide over her abdomen and bringing her backside into contact with what rose between his hips.

She gave him her weight and he held firm, nipping and licking at her lips before enticing her to enter his mouth.

He entertained the intrusion for a moment or two then, with a growl, he spun her around, pressing their chests together.

Raven looked up into blazing gray eyes.

“Are you certain?”

She nodded.

“I need the words, Raven. I need to know you want this.”

“I want you.”

He took her mouth, his tongue alternately penetrating and retreating in a sensual rhythm.

She tilted her head, welcoming him, as the water continued to rain down.

Hands roamed over slick skin as their lower bodies came into alignment. She touched his neck, his shoulders, his biceps, holding them tightly in an effort to remain upright.

William was not a tame lover.

In his arms, she sensed his control, his desire, and the war that waged between the two. But he’d never harmed her and had always focused his attention on giving pleasure before taking it. Usually more than once.

“You’re a dream,” she sighed. “A dream of love I never thought I’d have.”

His eyes burned into hers.

Without warning, he lifted her, tugging her thighs around his hips.

He lowered his mouth to her breasts, tasting and teasing before sucking droplets of water from her eager flesh.

She wrapped her arms around his neck, feeling him eager between her legs.

He lifted her higher, hands beneath her backside, making sure he was correctly aligned.

“Breathe,” he commanded, his eyes boring in to hers.

Here was the vampyre, proud and powerful, teetering on the edge of control. He bared his teeth as if on instinct and his chest rumbled.

“Just don’t break me,” she whispered, pushing a lock of blond hair from his forehead.

William’s expression grew even more fierce.

“I won’t break you. Whatever harm I bring to you I vow to heal.”

He swallowed her reply with his kiss. Then with a single thrust, he entered her.

His kisses were as fierce as his movements as he pushed inside and withdrew, over and over. His grip on her backside tightened as he lifted and moved her in concert with his own motion.

Raven clung to him, her hand trailing to his lower back so she could urge him deeper.

Not that he needed the encouragement.

Her breasts brushed against his chest, the friction teasing and arousing.

She ignored the warm spray of the water, the scent of soap and William, and the nagging discomfort in her leg and ankle. Her focus was on feeling as he brought her swiftly to the brink of orgasm.

Before she could signal how close she was, she climaxed, her hand clutching his neck as she threw her head back.

William continued his pace until she’d finished, his mouth dropping to her breasts, drawing one of them into his mouth.

When she opened her eyes, she found him staring at her hungrily.

“I have only begun,” he rasped. “Breathe.”

WOW!!!! We're breathing pretty heavy in anticipation! SR, we are looking forward even more to 2016!
