Why I love series
I love writing books in a series and reading them. Part of the reason is that I love delving into a world, not just a single book. I think this is especially true of paranormal books where so much time and effort is taken to create a believable environment to support the plot. World building, if successfully done, lets you see and feel the struggles and motives of the people and culture involved. There are rules for the supernatural creatures to follow and oftentimes complications to overcome, whether they’re in the form of another species, discovery by the humans or some other unique issue. The reader invests the time into learning the rules and it’s nice to know it’s not wasted on one book.
The story presented in a paranormal series is an escape from reality. I often compare them to a favorite TV show. I look forward to downloading the newest additions to my favorite series as much as I enjoy watching the latest episode of my must-watch shows.
The other reason I love series is that I tend to fall in love with secondary characters. I think a well-rounded book has a support cast that enhances the main hero and heroine’s development and plot. They’re the antagonists, the supporters and sometimes the villains. Some of them I root for, others I want to see be put in their place, but when I connect to them, I want their story. I especially love sibling stories. I want everyone to find a happily-ever-after.
In my Royal Pride series, I have story ideas for several secondary characters—Kade, Vader, Xander and others. The only problem I have is deciding which one to write next. They can be a tad demanding, especially Kade since my latest addition to the Royal Pride series, Favorite Obsession.
I’ll be kicking off another series this summer for Ellora’s Cave and have a secret one in the works. I’m excited to share their worlds, but that’s a lot of secondary characters to keep happy. I better write faster.
Book 3, Royal Pride
Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.
One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.
