With Samhain as my main publisher, digital releases tend to be the “WOW-new story, it’s here, it’s here,’it’s here…” release days.
But the longer I write, the more I realize that’s not very fair, because there are a lot of print only readers still. Part of the reason I love working with Samhain is is because my digital works DO go to print–either as anthologies for the shorter works or… like BLACK GOLD.
I love this book. It was a challenge to write in some ways because it’s enough like the Granite Lake novellas and yet it’s twice as long–and that makes the actual writing a whole new thing. Plot twists increase, characters get more time to develop–it was a challenge that I wanted to try and when I succeeded, I was hooked. With the second book in this series coming out next month, the third on the writing schedule, I can honestly say that this series was a a turning point in my paranormal writing.
I still love the Granite Lake novellas, and there will be another coming in Feb 2013, but the richness of the world in the Takhini series makes me smile. I hope you’ll celebrate with me as my ninth print book hits the shelves. No matter how you end up reading it–digital or print!
Their wolves are howling at the moon. Their human halves are on different planets.
Lone wolf Shaun Stevens’s automatic response to the words “happily ever after”?Kill me now. Yet with all his friends settling down he’s begun to think there may actually be something to this love-and-roses crap.
One thing’s for sure: his dream mate will have to out-cuss, out-spit and out-hike him. So he never expected the one to push his forever button would be a blue-blooded Southern debutante with a voice as dark and velvety as her skin.
When Gemmita Jacobs steps off the plane in Whitehorse, Yukon, it’s about more than her caribou research project. It’s her declaration of independence from an overprotected upbringing. Except there’s something in the air she can’t quite define—something that unexpectedly rouses her mating instincts.
Moments after their eyes lock, the deed is done—and done thoroughly. When the pheromone dust settles, though, all the reasons they don’t belong together become painfully clear.
It’s enough to make a wolf learn a whole new set of cuss words…
Warning: Two strong wolves getting exactly what they deserve. Includes wilderness nookie, shifters being naughty in public places, the Midnight Sun as a canopy for seduction and grizzly shifters on the loose. Oh, and don’t forget the sarcasm.
