Welcome to 2013! This year promises to be a much bigger year in terms of success for all of us, due to it supposedly being lucky 13! I’m behind that, aren’t you? *g*
One of the things I did at the end of last year was re-examine some of the things readers have said. They love my work, they love the characters and the stories but most of them wanted longer books. I have those, but they’re tied up with agents right now. Both of them drafting pitch letters and looking for ways to sell my Burning Desires series and Covenant of Wolves series. I DO have my Nights of Lust series that only I control. Except those stories need new life, because they’re all in various states of finished.
Endangered is with a beta reader who is helping me with tightening the plot.
Separated Self will go to her next, and I’ll go back and fix/extend/slow down Cursed. Might write a brand new novella in between Cursed and Broken and Beloved, but I’m not sure yet. I have to really bring out a lot of the characters as I realized there is a LOT to play with.
Ultimately, Josef, Livia and Kissa are a triad BUT Livia and Isabel have been lovers for the last 400 years. Oh, she’s got a male lover too, Josef’s second in command. And Dave/Lucian, my “lycanthrope” (not a true wolf shifter) has a lover also but he’s possessive. You can probably see the fun I can have with the series without telling you about WHO these people are LOL!
Since I’ve talked about the characters, here’s their profiles from my old plotter!
Josef Staganov: Russian, 6’2 and dangerous. Long black hair, slicked back into a ponytail sometimes, but mostly worn slicked back. At the start, he’s addicted to drugs, all of them. Silver eyes, Dirty habits, controlled by lust and fueled by anger at the situation, Joséf is a man with a need for control in his life.
Livia: Hungarian, 5’4, cute and round, long black hair with pale skin that’s practically effervescent. She’s been dead for over 3-400 years. She’s relatively young compared to her friend, Isabella. Blue eyes. She and Isabella have forgone the need for last names at the moment.
In a world where vampires and shifters are powerless against the forces of evil, a queen must find her salvation in the suicidal man she’s been watching for so many years.
Endangered is the story of Livía Ilona and Joséf Staganov, female vampire and rogue cop fighting against the same enemy. She knows he can help her recover something the Syndicate stole from her and is determined to get what she wants, but first she must get past Joséf’s desire to end his own life.
Joséf Staganov is a frustrated former cop attempting to bring down The Syndicate, a large crime organization that has created a new drug that’s very addictive. Ultimately, Joséf must his true gift of uniting others against evil and must leave for Hungary to learn more about his heritage as a wolf with an ancient pack before returning to America to help and truly love Livía.
