Long time, no see!
I’ve had a number of things that have kept me away including finishing a MS in Psychology and a total life overhaul. I won’t bore you with the details because, in short, I simply owe an apology to all those who’ve been so patient and checked on me repeatedly. And I am sincerely sorry for the detour. I never expected that to become so life consuming (along with all the other mess that happened).
But I’m back now just as fast as I could get back. I finished the last graduate school class last Sunday, and what a relief! The good news is, I know more than ever that my heart lies in crafting fiction (and I have some new tricks up my sleeve thanks to the psych classes). I’ve missed it and you guys dearly.
On a small side note, I also finished writing the next installment of Blood & Sex. *grins* Yes, I finally did it this week. I can’t give you the release date yet because there is some editing left to be done, but I can tell you that “Tori” is the title. (Yes, ladies and gents, she has her very own book among the guys.)
Since everything else in my life is changing, I’ve decided to add all my work to this site under all names. I’ll be adding things under both writing names here from now on and making it easier to find all of my material. I also have outlines of a few other stories drafted and ready for writing. Who’s ready for another story?
I am so excited to announce that Ravenous Romance and Red Wheel have teamed up to offer paranormal romances in print. My work (the Blood & Sex Series) is a part of this offering and will be available in bookstores starting this summer.
According to the write-up in Publisher’s Weekly, “Reaction from Barnes & Noble and Borders has been very positive, Kerber added. Red Wheel will also sell the books into foreign markets and hopes to licensing foreign-language rights. ” (see the whole article here)
You can also take a peak at the covers and preorder on Amazon or on Red Wheel’s site at http://redwheelweiser.com/p.php?id=22
A wonderful and flattering new review is up at http://www.lisabetsarai.com/michaelreview.html
Here’s a clip of what the reviewer has to say about my book Blood & Sex, Vol. 1: Michael.
“I have scant patience with vampire romance. Forgive me the pun if I say that the genre has been done to death. It’s rare to find a treatment of vampires with any original aspects. Equally unusual are vampires who are convincingly dark or who demonstrate the complexity one would expect of creatures who have lived for centuries. These days, vampires are the new rock stars. (In fact, a distressingly large number of books actually feature bands composed of the undead.) Romance vampires are trendy, sharp, sexy and as shallow as a kid’s swimming pool.
Angela Cameron’s vampires are an exception. In Michael, Ms. Cameron offers a vampire society with echos of the Mafia: a society based on authority, loyalty, kinship and honor, threaded with the tensions of power struggles and possible betrayal. The vampires have reached an accord promising mutual co-existence with mortals. They own the night, cavorting in their fetish clubs and feeding from willing humans seduced by their glamor, but they supposedly no longer hunt mortal prey…”

I suppose bookmarks for an author as a promotional tool are a bit cliche at this point, but I caved and ordered some. I sweated the design a little, since these were the first that I’ve ever designed. It wasn’t that I didn’t know what I was doing. I do. I’ve got years of print design under my belt. But it’s just different when you design them for yourself. I bet I changed the design ten times.
Anyway, here’s what they look like. If you’d like one (or some), just check out my website for information on how to get swag.

I’m so pleased to announce that the author of Vampire 101 read Blood & Sex, Vol. 1: Michael. Here’s what she had to say about it:

BLOOD & SEX, Vol. 2: JONAS
Will release March 3 from Ravenous Romance
Here’s a little inside information about the book…
Jonas Luciano is the new owner of The Dungeon, a newly renovated, vampire themed, bondage and blood club. He also has his hands full protecting Michael, the new padrone of the Italian vampiro cosca in Collins Bay, Florida. He is perfectly content to carry out Michael’s orders and scramble the brain of anyone who threatens their safety, but protecting the Tori, Michael’s new compagna, without indulging his lusts is proving more hopeless by the night.
Dr. Elena Jensen is an immunohematologist with DIACorp, the world’s leading medical research facility. Because of her life’s work, she’s on the eve of a speech to announce the groundbreaking discovery of a new immune system booster for humans that will revolutionize the medical industry (and the lives of ever human on earth) with supernatural healing abilities.
Elena and Jonas’s worlds couldn’t be farther apart.
But when the Council discovers a plot to kidnap Elena and the formula, Jonas jumps at the chance to become her guardian angel— and get away from his family.
Will Jonas manage to protect her from the Bureau without breaking the Alleanza?
Or will Elena’s obstinacy be enough to drive the dominating beast out of the shadows?
I will be conducting contests and interviews on the release day, so keep reading for all the details.
