Chained in Desire

I’m excited to announce the preorder for Chained in Desire, the fourth book in the Enforcers and Coterie series. Until the release date, the preorder price is set at $0.99 and then will go to the regular price of $2.99, so get it now while it’s cheap. 😉

This book has one of my favourite characters, Victor, a mage who’s irresistible to women. I fell in love with him in Magic Resistant and couldn’t get him out of my head.  Isabella appeared in Sylvia’s Torment although she was never named, and I knew she had a large role to play.

Chained in Desire FB Size

Fourth in the Enforcers and Coterie series, each one is a standalone book delving deeper into a world where magic co-exists peacefully with the ordinary, for the most part…

As a Mage Demon Enforcer, Victor Tremaine is one of the elite classes. Only a handful of mages have earned this distinction since demons are tricky buggers, especially those who have entered Earth illegally. Six months ago, he received an assignment — find and capture something that shouldn’t even exist: a human turned demon.

Imagine his surprise when she appears one day and attacks him.

Isabella Tuarez has been tuned into the emotions of others all her life. She’s only ever wanted to help, but that driving desire may prove to be her undoing. Escape from her captors should’ve been a happy time. Instead she found herself held by someone more ruthless. To survive, she must prove her usefulness.

She must kill an Enforcer.

Preorder today and enjoy the next installment to the Enforcers and Coterie series.

Misbehaving Characters

The past two days I’ve been in a writing slump. The words refused to come to me, the characters thumbed their noses at me and I had nothing but crap to show for all my hard work. Okay, fine, I wasn’t working as hard as I should have. I’d blame the head cold, except that’s a cop-out.

The truth is, I didn’t listen to my characters. I forgot who they were and how they’re react to certain situations. As this is the 4th book of the series and the three main characters have appeared throughout, they have established who they are. Three strong-willed, opinionated and passionate characters.  And I was doing them a disservice.

Some of the scenes were spot on. Their personality shone through, as long as they weren’t interacting with each other. And other scenes were mired down with flatness. Hell, I didn’t want to read it again! Not good when the author is also bored. When the major revel occurred, it was hum-ho. The characters just kinda sat around going “Now what?” Yep, it was pretty damn terrible.

Which begs the question of how the hell am I fixing this?

I did what any good writer did. I thought about it. *laughs* Yep, just sat around thinking. It doesn’t sound like hard work, but damn it’s difficult. After a day and half of mulling it over, processing it, looking through notes and just plain old thinking, I figured it out. I need to start at the beginning and rewrite everything. There are some passages I will keep although it won’t be presented the same way. The interactions with the characters will change.

I listened to the characters and now hopefully they’ll stop screwing around and make a beautiful story with me. 😉

Day 11 on NaNoWriMo

Overall I’m doing quite well with my writing goals. Each day I’m hitting 2,500 although today I kinda sucked. I only wrote 1,100 words. *sigh* Which means I’m 1,400 words behind.

The words I wrote today, well, they were terrible. It was to be a major revel and fell flat. However I’m not doing any editing during this month. If I do, I’ll never reach 50k in a month. I figure lay the groundwork first and then make it shine once it’s all written.

I’ll share a snippet that I’m proud of though. I like the emotions this scene conveys.

He played a dangerous game. One he had no hope of winning.

“Show yourself, Revenant,” she murmured.

“And if I don’t want to?” he asked as he trailed a finger down her bare arm.

Her hair reached for him, needing what he promised. Treacherous hair couldn’t tell the different between the two men. It responded to her desire and didn’t care if Revenant was forbidden.

“Markus is my lover, not you.”

“But I could be.” Again his lips brushed her cheek, dangerously close to her lips. “All you have to do is say yes.”

“I can’t. I love him.”

“You love me as well.”

“That doesn’t matter. He has my heart and my loyalty. I will not betray him”

“Damn you. And damn him.” His breath fanned across the back of her head and his hands ran down her arms. “He doesn’t deserve your loyalty. This is his fault. He knew what would happen. Knew I’d come to love you as deeply as he does.”

“Revenant…” she sighed, hating the pain he felt. There was nothing she could do though.

“Don’t. I don’t want to hear excuses for him.”
