Turns out adding another pen name to my writing drawer is more than just fun. It’s a lot of work. Twitter accounts, Facebook accounts, and blogs need to be created. I already have FIVE Twitter accounts for my various pen names and blogs. The lazy chick in me begged, “No more!!!”
So the romance I was writing for the “Ilaria” pen name will be published under Bijou. Here's a Gator mini-blurb and my hot guy inspiration:
My scars terrify most people, but she views me as the sun, shining light into the darkness of her past. I am a killer, yet gave her life. She is mine and I dare anyone to stand in my way.
So how is Gator different than the Damaged series? Let us count the ways:
- Story is mainly from the guy’s POV.
- It’s novella length.
- It’s a standalone.
- It’s darker, i.e. a little more f’ed up than the Damaged books.
How is it the same?
- The guy wants what he wants and refuses to allow anyone to stand in his way.
- The chick is f’ed up, but gets stronger with the love of a sexy man.
- HEA, an epilogue, and no cheating.
So Gator is in the hands of my beta readers. Next week, I plan to have a few flash giveaways on Facebook for advance ebooks. Never done those before, so I’m super excited.
With Gator in the editing and proofing stages, I’m focused on Dragon and Bulldog. I am writing them together which might sound crazy, but I usually write two projects at a time. Working on the books simultaneously will ensure a shorter wait time between Dragon and Bulldog. ***Not every guy is a stud, but look at this dork giving it a try. :P
I want to leave you with a quote from Gator. On Friday, I’ll post a snippet from Dragon. Oh, and there’s an amazing blog giveaway everyone should check out. My ebooks are included along with gift cards and a ton of cool books by many awesome authors.
Here’s the Gator quote. I’ll babble again on Valentine's Day!
Mia knows me. I am not Gator. I am not the scars or the fearsome look or the body women drool over. I am not a killer or a man to be redeemed. I am just me. Failed and fucked up. I am ruined by life, yet live on to ruin others. I am complicated and simple. I am her savior and just the kid trapped in the swamp with monsters. I am everything and nothing. Mia knows me in a way no one ever has and this is what makes us special.
