Oh I love this cover!!!! How many more will there be in this series?
I love turquoise and this color is so close to it!

Too will there be more in the vamp series?

I have already written a couple more to the Wanton Werewolf Series, and need to write at least one more--maybe more than that.

You can look forward to Pack Taboo and Pack Attack.

I've already got the title of the one after that The Pack is Coming.

As for the vampire series, I think I'll have to write a third Dark Lord story. It would be cruel to leave fans without knowing why the sprites screwed with the great love, and how the Dark Lord gets that chastity belt off, don't you think?

The big reason that one isn't done yet, is because I'm toying with whether or not I want to do HIS viewpoint again, or swap off to hers.

What do you think?

Carys, this vampire series is in my basket now. I have to delete a few, no way could I buy all I put in there, oy, but your Dark Lord books are staying in there!

For me who's writing the point of view, it can be either, but one thing is I don't like when a series isn't finished I know that sometimes with publishers or authors or anything, its decided that there would be no more books, I then always ask the author to at least give us a story on the site of the ending of the series. I really get caught up with the characters so I really want to see an ending you know. SO I do hope you do book three. Just wanted to let you know what I felt about ending series, we do need the ending. hugs

Oh I forgot to ask, I remember you posting above too with the titles you come up with to write the story, so you have to have a title to work with or you feel you can't write the story? I always wondered how that was for some authors.

I like what you picked for the titles for the werewolf series. So which books again will be in print? 1-4 or 5 or 6?

I like to give my works titles from the get-go because A)It makes it easier to find in my document file--which is filled with a hundred unfinished things. B)The title gives me an idea to work off of.

As for the werewolf series going to print--each story is slated for ebook first, then print release later. Some of the ones coming out are longer, and actually full length novels. So, some of those will stand alone in their own print book, probably.

But, the prequel (Chaos) and the next, um, three books (I think) will be in the first anthology of the Wanton Werewolf Series.

I think all series should have a finale.

The problem that readers don't necessarily understand about the series that end without a finishing book is--publishing is a fickle business.

For me, I wrote the first Dark Lord book TWO YEARS AGO. The second one last year. I plan to do the third one this year.

When there is a lot of time between the writing of series books, the author gets distracted by other projects and it's hard to get back in the mood to write a certain way.

I don't know if you readers have read enough of my stuff, but, for example, The Dark Lord is very angsty. Those books are filled with beautiful prose--descriptions about the world--emotion is on a different level of intensity than my other works, and there's some serious surreality twisted in there.

My contemporary titles are straight forward. Characters are flip in conversation. (Whole different mood.)

The werewolf books are edgy. More swearing, violence, and the sex is taken up a couple notches to the lines people might not want to cross in real life, but like in a book.

My fairy tale books (Fairy Tale Love and Merry Men and Women-a Robin Hood Spoof) are at opposite ends of the spectrum, too--from everything else AND each other.

I guess what I'm getting at is that I have to be in the right mood to write certain things.

For some authors, who write only, say, contemporary, they might not have to switch modes like I do. And those who only write vampires of a certain type--it's easier to stay in the brain pattern.

I, on the other hand, endeavor to give you a series that is unique. While some of the vampire books I have coming out will have some surreality to them, they won't have the same angst that is specific to The Dark Lord. Each hero/heroine is different. (I hope!)

That said, I want to point something out. My Dark Lord and Fairy Tale Love have 1000 yr curses in them. I didn't realize it until they were already for sale. I had written SIX books between them.

Sometimes things like that happen.
But, I'm trying hard to not let it happen again. I don't want you to pick up one of my stories and then another and throw them at the wall, saying, "They're all alike."

Man, I REALLY hope you never do that.
