Many thank to S.L. Armstrong and K. Piet of Storm Moon Press for donating an ebook copy of their recently released paranormal m/m romance, The Other Side of Night: Bastian & Riley, for a lucky commenter to win as part of the Storm Moon Press 2011 Blog Tour!
Vampires walk among us. For centuries, they have adapted, learning to pass undetected in our world. They no longer fear the day, only the sting of direct sunlight. They are students, bankers, lawyers, and even actors. But when the sun goes down, they are all united by their eternal thirst. We do not see them from our safe and comfortable side of the night. But sometimes, one of us is drawn away from the light and we cross into their world. Into the other side of night.
Sebastian Rossi’s second year at the University of Tennessee began much differently than his first. He rushes to and from his classes, covered head to toe in thick clothing. Parties are a thing of the past, and dating hasn’t been high on his list of priorities. No, high on his needs is blood. Lots of it. Adjusting to the changes no one even told him would happen following one great night of partying and sex has been hell for Bastian, but he’s managing.
Riley Lynch’s dream is to be a veterinarian. He works hard to pay his tuition, reads in every spare moment, and tries to forget the nightmare of his sophomore year. Summer has washed away all the bad, leaving him refreshed and eager for his junior year at UT. Life is finally looking up for him, and he has no intention of sliding back down into the depression that had consumed him during his last relationship.
A chance meeting brings their two worlds into alignment and passion sparks between them. When Riley learns of the changes Bastian is going through, he has a choice to make: walk away or embrace the night.

About S.L. Armstrong
S.L. Armstrong has been writing for as long as she can remember. Art and reading have played a large part in her life since young childhood, but around fourteen, writing became her passion. When she discovered M/M romance, and how it was now a legitimate branch of romance writing, she knew her course. S.L. plans to release F/F, M/M, M/F, and multiple partner books as she continues her writing career. M/M romance is where her heart lies, no matter what else she may write or read, and it’s where she keeps returning to. There is something about two men passionately in love that just makes her heart melt, and she has no intention of giving that up anytime soon.
S.L. Armstrong lives in Florida with her husband, two dogs, and seven cats. She hates the heat and longs for a northern, snowy climate. She writes with K. Piet on a number of projects, but she also writes her own solitary titles as well. S.L. Armstrong owns Storm Moon Press LLC along with her husband and K. Piet, and she is proud of all they accomplish with the micro press.
About K. Piet
K. Piet was born in California and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona with her older sister and two cats. A college graduate of Kinesiology, K. is a licensed massage therapist and specializes in therapeutic bodywork for those involved in artistic sports such as gymnastics and figure skating, circus performance, and professional dance.
After working with S. L. Armstrong on a number of small writing projects in college and coming to see the act of writing as a learned skill, K. found a new zeal for the challenge and now writes as a sideline career. Though she didn’t get her literary jump-start until college, she can no longer imagine her life without writing.
K. currently lives in Florida, but she dreams of a time when she can move back to the pine forests, far away from the heat and humidity. K. is also a proud co-owner of Storm Moon Press LLC, a micro press specializing in GLBT and alternative lifestyle erotica and erotic romance.
