Dragon Dance

Self-preservation, not cowaradice, drove Cora Phillips to run from the supernatural intrigues surrounding Salim Aridi, Greg Cho, and their respective dragon aspects.

The moment Salim loses control, however, the dragons demonstrate just how meaningless human distance really is, and return to remind Cora that dragon ties are not so easily broken.

Happy Father's Day!

For All the Daddy’s
For all the Daddy's everywhere...
For all the Daddy’s who did bad hair
And woke us up and got us ready
For all the Daddy’s who did without
To see that we did not
For all the Daddy’s we think about
who caught us when we fell and held us steady
For all the Daddy’s who taught us right from wrong
And math and spelling and how to get along
For all the Daddy’s who showed us love
Day after day, no matter what
You were a gift from above
We thank you. Wherever you are
Not ours to keep forever
Yet your voice lingers in our ear
A gentle guidance through our fear

Sunday, April 1, 2007


In the words attributed to Mary Frye:

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Immorati by MK Mancos is now available for download from Triskelion Publishing.
When the corpse of an unidentified species is found in the woods near Pine Haven, New Jersey along with a human female, anthropologist Edie Campbell is called in by local law enforcement and the medical examiner to help identify the strange humanoid male. The discovery of a heretofore unknown species is thrilling for Edie, up until she realizes the creature has recently mated with the human female.
Questions form with no apparent answers until Aidan LaMont arrives in Pine Haven to identify his cousin’s body. But the secretive Aidan hides as much of the mystery surrounding the strange creature as he explains. And Edie has no doubt that behind his simmering sexuality, and amber eyes, he knows much more than he’s willing to tell.

First Review for Leap of Fate!

The waiting is finally over! I have my very first review for Leap of Fate from Romance Reviews Today Erotic. A huge thank you to Ms. Holly Tibbs for her kind words. Here's a snippet:

LEAP OF FATE -- Antonia Pearce
ISBN: 978-1-60088-101-5
February 2007
Erotic Paranormal Romance
RRTE Rating: Multiple O's

"I’ll admit that within the first couple of pages of LEAP OF FATE I knew what was coming, but Antonia Pearce does it with such finesse, that it kept me turning each page to see what happens. The story is short, but long on fiery passion as the chemistry between Merryn and Luke sizzles. Head on over to Cobblestone and pick up this gem of a tale."

My Very First Blog! Oh, My!

LEAP OF FATE, from Cobblestone Press, LLC will be coming out in electronic format on February 2, 2007! Yay!

I'm very proud of Leap. It's my first paranormal erotic e-publication. It is marginally a tale of what can happen when a woman agrees to be a bridesmaid at her best friend's wedding. Besides "The Bridesmaid's Dress," I mean. And we've all heard stories about that--or experienced "The Dress."

But, it is mostly the story of an enduring love and an exploration of life, death, love and the hereafter. We are all fascinated by the concept of love, therefore it should come as no surprise I would delight in writing about that subject and so many enjoy reading about it. But, the metaphysical, the paranormal...There has been an explosion of interest in these subjects. Why?

I think, in some way, the process of searching for explanations for the unexplainable, gives a sense of control. A sense of comfort. That, yes. We can understand why things happen the way they do. In reality, perhaps we understand. Perhaps not.

I lived for many years in Santa Barbara, California. It's close neighbor, Summerland, was actually founded as a Spiritualist colony--the movement in the late 19th Century that sought to communicate with the dead through seances. I even took a college course in Paranormal Phenomena. I think it is a combination of this and some personal experiences that inspire me to write in the paranormal genre. Do you believe in paranormal phenomena? If so, have you had any paranormal experiences?
