I’m excited to welcome a long-time friend of mine to the blog today in advance of her 12/20 debut, Blood Betrayal. Alison Beightol and I met through QueryTracker and she read the first draft (eeep, and she still talks to me after how TERRIBLE it was) of what became MY debut, Blood Rage and I read what ultimately became Blood Betrayal back in 2010. So, let’s give her a nice round of applause and a warm Word-Slingers Welcome!
Wow, over twenty years. Right now it feels like I have been writing over twenty years on my WIP.
Daily? At least 3. I work full time, am a single mom and am a student. I don’t add writing into that because lately writing is a luxury. Somehow I make it work though!
Blood Betrayal is about flawed characters who happen to be vampires. (TM – hehe, sounds familiar) LOL. What I’m trying to say, my vampires aren’t perfect. They still happen to have the same personality quirks that most of us have. That said, I wanted to write a story about an ancient vampire who wanted a companion but had no idea about truly modern women and women who would tell him no (something he isn’t used to hearing). At the same time, he gets drawn into the underworld of vampire politics and intrigue.
The thing about paranormal romance is that it gives your characters a bonus. They aren’t just people with love issues, they have the added complication (or bonus) of being a vampire, being a shifter, a ghost or whatever else!
I’m trying to write a women’s fiction novel but it has been on hold for a while while I finish out the Primigenio Tales series. However I’ve found that writing in other genres is more difficult for me because there isn’t any paranormal elements in it L I’m beginning to think that I’ve found my niche!
Both! I’m not partial to either. Even in ice cream. And that becomes even more complicated because I like Neapolitan ice cream (TM – oy, woman). LOL.
