November is my favorite month of the year–Fall colors, a chill in the air, pumpkin spice everything, and National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is the one month a year when I raise writing to priority #1 and quit with the excuses. I have to write everyday to “win” NaNo, and you should know I’m very competitive. For at least the last five years I’ve written messy, delightful, creative manuscripts that have become published novels in my Spell of Summoning, Red Plague, and Beasts of Vegas series.
Do you have a novel waiting to be written? Join me for NaNoWriMo this year. It’s free to participate and a community of amazing amateur and professional writers are always there to bounce ideas off of and meet for coffee and plot talks.
This year, I’m taking a break from my Beasts of Vegas series (but don’t worry–I’ll be back with a new sequel next year) and writing the last novel in my Red Plague series. There’s one more story to tell, and I’m going to share Jared and Olivia’s apocalyptic love story. There will be red-eyed monsters, tyrants, edge-of-your-seat adventure, and so many zombies!
I’m going to need your support to get through the next month, so keep checking back, and throw me a heart or two on Instagram (anna.abner).
I’m so excited to announce Beasts of Vegas #2 is now available for preorder. Roz finally gets her own love story, and it’s with a sexy shifter.
Roz Carrera is a witch on the fritz. Thanks to the Coven’s rejection of her application for membership, she’s been denied a proper magical education. Without a mentor, she’s nearly useless in helping her team of vampire hunters. Complicating matters is the hulking shapeshifter she stumbles upon outside Las Vegas who may or may not be a vicious psychopath.
The only creatures shapeshifter Lukas Larsson hates more than vampires are witches. He’s in the Nevada desert to destroy the vampires who murdered his family, but the witch Roz Carrera and her ragtag team sideline him. He can’t allow the very sexy Roz to distract him from his vengeance.
When Trevor stands up Ian Gallagher, Ian barges into his apartment to find out why. He discovers Trevor bleeding and fading in and out of consciousness after a brutal attack. EMT Ian to the rescue.

Writing paranormal romances has been my lifelong dream, and I will never give it up, but recently I’ve been pestered with new ideas. Short, LGBT ideas chock full of whump. What started as a fun diversion quickly became more serious.
Now, I’m ready to make it official. I’m writing short, gay erotica under the name Sadie West.
All three short stories are available on Amazon, SmashWords, and Barnes and Noble for 99¢ each. A new Gallavich (the Ian Gallagher + Mickey Milkovich relationship from Shameless) fan fiction is live on ArchiveOfOurOwn.org as well as free on my blog.
I hope you enjoy this new facet of my writing. Let me know what you think!
