I think it's interesting to see the reader perspective about Zoe/Silver in regards to the relationships she has (or doesn't have) in the book. Each man presents himself as a worthy guy in his own way, and while this is not a PNR book, I'm hoping as the series progresses, readers begin to understand the relationships.
People are brought into your life for a reason.
Silver is a woman who has desires, and has never felt truly revered as a woman by a man (on various levels, not just physical). This of course does not validate who she is, because she has thrived on her own independence and is now forced to depend on others. This puts her in a very confusing situation.
Suffice it to say, that I cannot wait to release book 2 and really touch on this subject again in more detail. I think it would help to have context behind what I'm doing with all the characters. :)
The cover work is coming along, as I'm doing various mock-ups. I'm debating if I should post some of them here for reader opinions, or if that would ruin the fun if I selected one some didn't like. Maybe I'll just show you all the rejects, how's that? lol
Thanks to those who follow me and enjoy the series. I hope you see it as something different than what is typical in "Urban Fantasy". Yes, we love our girls who kick ass, but how did it all begin? What if YOU became Breed? That's the question I posed when writing this. How easy it would be to acclimate to this new world, this new life, new abilities - especially when it was never your choice to begin with.
Where am I with the book?Still waiting on the betas. They have a month, and yes I'm becoming as anxious as the rest of you. I'd love to get all the results so I can get my hands back on the book and editing again. However, I'd prefer they take their time and really give it a thorough read. Anyone who takes time out to do this is really amazing.
So send them some chocolates!
Now, for a humorous glance at what keywords are bringing people to this webpage for this week! What wonder kind of readers I would attract if I started writing about hot, steamy, romance? lol
- Sexy Mysterious Guy (oh yeah)
- Leather Pants Boy (If you find him, let me know)
- Attractive Male at 40
- Dannika Dark (Glad you found me, all 41 of you!)
- Knee Socks
I have posted this on my facebook wall - I've written 4 books in the Mageri series. I wrote these well over a year ago, and during my editing some things have become glaringly obvious.
In other words: I could potentially have a few doors open for a book five. This, of course, would all depend on whether readers embrace the series as a whole (which I hope you all do). I can only stick with it as long as my heart is in it. I know some publishing companies pressure the authors (or fans, even) to continue a series until maybe it's a little like beating a dead horse.
In any case, I have other series that I'm DYING to release also! Perhaps before a book five is on the horizon, I'd like to get one of these going. I hope some of you are in for the long haul, because I have a lot in my trunk.
