Souls for Sale Blurb

When demon Saul persuades comic book artist Tom to sign over his soul in exchange for a night of passion, little does he know what lies in store. Demons can’t fall in love—or so he’s been told—but he finds himself smitten and attempts to destroy the contract, desperate to save Tom from an eternity of torture.

With Saul and Tom forced to run, a showdown between Heaven and Hell ensues as the angels and demons argue over who owns Tom’s soul. But does either party have a stronger claim than Saul?

As I already new the story, I knew I would enjoy Souls for Sale. And I was not disappointed. I still love Saul’s humor and sassy nature. I also enjoyed his penchant for breaking through the fourth wall. This romance that’s sparked out of a nefarious contract is always enjoyable to re-read and the light and dark contrast of the main characters drew me in.

It’s hard to re-review this without repeating myself, so I will keep it simple: if you love interesting characters of the paranormal variety, sizzling romance, and listening to the “voice” of a brilliant and funny demon, you will definitely enjoy Souls for Sale. So go on and grab yourself a copy!

Asta Idonea on her Inspiration for Souls for Sale

When I first began contemplating Souls for Sale, which initially came into being as a short story for an anthology call, the character of Saul wandered into my head full formed. I loved his cocky persona, and his voice simply cried out for a 1st person narration. He was the foundation upon which the rest of the story evolved. Once I had him in place, I knew his love interest had to be someone completely different, because there was only enough room for one ego as big as Saul’s on the page!

Saul’s presence was perfect for a ‘deal with the devil’ scenario, and the idea grew from there. In this instance, it was very much a case of character guiding plot, and to date, Saul remains the most vocal character I’ve written, nattering in my ear all the while I was drafting. I fell in love with him the moment he appeared to me, and I hope readers will adore him too.
