The first book in my new Werewolf Fantasy Series “Wolves of the South” is now available for pre-order! And I am so happy how it all came together, including the amazing cover.
You see, a few months ago, I read a dragon shifter series by an author I admire. It was rather steamy, consisted of short novels and followed the romance of two people in each installment. The sequels were all connected to the previous main characters, and buying through was a no-brainer.
Which made me think. Actually, I thought… I can do this, too!
Except I didn’t want to do dragon shifters. And I have been thinking a lot about werewolves – mostly about what I didn’t like in those stories. You see, that whole alpha wolf stuff is based on very outdated behavioral studies of wolves in zoos. Where animals do not necessarily show natural behavior, after all. So I wanted werewolves, but not the traditional, hairy, ugly ones.
My Werewolf Fantasy Characters
Writer Brain went to work, and presented me with a plot for three novels of my new werewolf fantasy series within a single night. Needless to say, I didn’t get a lot of sleep during that night… but when morning rolled around, I knew about the McMullen family, about Ben, Liz and Nessa, and had a vague idea about their adventures.
So I started writing Ben, and his love interest Sylvia. That story happened very quickly, and I quite love how it came out. However, one thing was a surprise – both of them utterly refused to add steam. So while there is some love-making, it basically happens behind closed doors.
Liz’s story is closely interwoven with Ben’s story, and in fact, her love interest belongs to Sylvia’s family. And the antagonists are partially the same.
Then Nessa came along and met a motorcycle gang, and dark-haired Nick captured her heart, and then another member of the gang raised his hand. So Connor got his story and found Ashley, and then… another character demanded his story. (That’s how my series explode…)
That character was Olivier, Ashley’s father, and of course, he needed a love interest, as well. Which turned out to be Alice, an accomplished wolf doctor from the pack that took in Ben and his sisters.
I already know some details about one more book, which will involve a female main character (no spoilers here) and Dan, a wolf from the big pack. Writer Brain still needs to come up with that particular plot, however…
You also need to know a few more things about my werewolves, just so that you’re not disappointed.
My wolves don’t do that alpha nonsense. They do not howl at the moon. They don’t to that screaming, hairy shifting stuff. Most of all, they are not evil. In fact, they are basically humans with specific, additional superpowers – and some problems that humans don’t have.
Additionally, I’m actually developing a bit of a lingo they use to express their wolf-ness. That makes my linguist heart cackle, you know.
So yeah, no horror vibes in my tales. They are Sweet Werewolf Romance with a large side of adventure and action. And yes, happy endings. I love them, after all.
Why am I telling you all this?
Because I’m gearing up to releasing this entire werewolf fantasy series (6 books so far, and vague ideas for more) starting in July. There will be one new book every month, with a new, fast-paced adventure and a clear happy ending.
The current titles in the Werewolf Fantasy series are (some might still change…):
- A Wolf’s Quest
- A Wolf’s Fear
- A Wolf’s Honor
- A Wolf’s Fury
- A Wolf’s Fight
- A Wolf’s Revenge
And did I say that “A Wolf’s Quest” is already up?
I’m distributing it in all major stores, and it will go live on July 10th, 2021. Grab it here:
And if you’re not good at remembering dates, you can sign up to my monthly newsletter. I will remind you of every new book and pre-order, of course, and even better… you’ll get a cute story about my little, red, dragon sidekick, Ember with every email. Sometimes, I’ll also ask questions and offer ways of contributing to the stories. Working on ARCs, so you can read my stories for free. Oh, and you’ll get another gift: a free, fast-paced short story set in my dragon world, the Cloud Lands, that you can get nowhere else.
Sounds good? Here you go!
