Hi, I'm Stephanie Julian...

and I'm a new Casablanca author!

It's great to be here though I'm not new to the romance world. I've been publishing since 2004. I wrote two sweet romances under the name Stephanie Scott for Avalon Books before I found my calling as an erotic romance author. I've since published 11 (and counting) erotic romances with Ellora's Cave in three series.

In July 2011, Sourcebooks Casablanca will release the first book in my Forgotten Goddesses series, WHAT A GODDESS WANTS. I'm so excited for everyone to meet Tessa and fall in love with Caligo. The Forgotten Goddesses erotic romance series is part of my Etruscan world, which I introduced in the Magical Seduction and continued in the Lucani Lovers series at EC.

The Forgotten Goddesses are exactly that...Etruscan goddesses. Once powerful now mostly obsolete. And hunted by a powerful god who wants to consume them.

Of course they need a little help to save themselves. Enter our hot, hunky heroes.

In WHAT A GODDESS WANTS, you'll meet Cal. Who wouldn't love Cal? He's strong, tough and nearly indestructible. The perfect man for Tessa.

And see that cover? Isn't it gorgeous? It's also perfect. The day I opened that file, I gushed to editor Deb Werksman and the mighty art department that it perfectly captured my characters and I can't wait for you all to meet them.

In the meantime, I've got to start work on the next Forgotten Goddesses book. And the next Lucani Lovers story. Oh, and I've got these things called kids and a husband... I guess they need a little attention too.

I've got an abundance of things to keep me busy. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. And I'm so glad to be here.

  5. Welcome Stephanie!

    The plights of forgotten goddesses should make for some interesting and imaginative conflicts. And, we all know what a randy bunch those Greek and Italian gods were. Sounds like you've come up with some fun, and hot reads!

  8. Welcome, Steph! I'm so glad you're here. I loved the Lucani Lovers series. I read one in when I was on a hard deadline. And to think I just opened it to see if I would be able to read it on my MAC. I had no intention of reading it in one sitting when I should have been writing. I believe I even sent you a "Look what you made me do" email. Sigh...

    The book cover is gorgeous and I'm counting the days until I can sit down and read it in one sitting. Let's just hope I'm not on a hard deadline then...
