Wow. First, let me say how much I adore your virtual book club that you’ve put together here. Traveling via a virtual book tour is a bit akin to heading out to different parts of the country that you’ve never visited before, and I’m glad that I’ve discovered this literary treat.
Wine and reading: Two of my favorite pastimes. In fact, so much so that I’m fighting the desire for a glass of wine while writing this guest column. Oh, damn … why fight it? The power of suggestion. The kidlets will be staying the night with Grandpa tonight. Well, there is that whole matter of trying to curl my hair. But, one glass?
*Goes to open a bottle*
Can we add music to the mix, too? Currently I’m listening to Cold Cave’s “Confetti.” There, perfect.
Now, where were we? Oh, you want to know what type of wine? Seven Daughters, it’s a white mixed blend. I’m not much of a purist. I like the combination of flavors, and I think that tendency comes through my writing also.
My erotic paranormal series starts off as a m/m/f and in the sequel The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: Chains of Silver, we continue on with the original threesome, but the main storyline focuses on a m/f couple. Recently, I finished a prequel for the series that’s just The Vampire & The Werewolf, and if you’ve been following the storyline that means m/m.
As a writer, it can sometimes be detrimental to jump all over the place. People like to pigeonhole a write into a genre or niche. That’s where the tagline Love Knows No Bounds comes from. For me, with writing and in love, the gender of the person doesn’t matter as much as the individual. So while in many mythologies a vampire would never get together with a werewolf … why not?
If the relationship works between the characters, that’s what matters. What are some of your favorite unlikely couples, whether it be in fiction or through film/television? Anyone that doesn’t seem like they should be together, and then it totally works? And, how do their differences sometimes bring them together? Sometimes the combination can really work.
I totally have a soft spot for the geek girl and star athlete. Maybe because I swayed way more on the nerdy since while growing up …
Thanks for stopping by. Now, to finish this glass, and the book I’m reading.
The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: Chains of Silver
Adopted at birth, Silver Ashe discovers her blood-brother Trevor Pack is a werewolf, with a vampire and witch for lovers. All her teachings about the evils of the paranormal Others come into question. She runs to a family friend, Nick, for help.
Nick Stake takes his hobby as a vampire hunter personally. He strives to rid the world of evil bloodsuckers. When his best friend’s “kid” sister comes to him for advice, Nick discovers Silver’s more than grown up. He battles his growing desire for Silver and blindly holds true to his convictions.
Once Silver reaches her sexual maturity, she’ll inherit her full genetic heritage and turn into a werewolf. When death comes calling, Silver and Nick must face their darkest fears in order to break free from the chains that bind.
