Children of the Wild

Hi folks,

Werewolves and werehawks, vampires, and strange things in between, that’s what the Hawk and the Wolf is about.  Yep, I’m back to telling you about the Children of the Wild series, and there’s more to come, soon.  Okay, for now, the Hawk and the Wolf.  This is the fourth book in the series and it’s one of my favorites.

The story begins with a bad accident in a government lab, the results are strange, unique, and extremely dangerous.  Mix in werewolves, a werehawk, vampires, top secret government agents, and a deadly exploding stone, and anything can happen, and it will.  Check it out here:

Freedom Reborn

Hi folks,

Today I’ll tell you a bit about the Elvish Chronicles.  For thousands of years the High Born Elves have languished in the chains of slavery, their great strength gone, their extra keen senses dulled, and their immortality broken. Somehow, in spite of their harsh master’s efforts, the royal line managed to survive. Now, with the aid of a deadly assassin, the heir is about to shake off the chains of slavery, expose the lies, and bring her people to freedom. And she has no idea the magnitude of the task she has undertaken.

Revise and Revive

Hi folks,

Today I’ve got my mind on the revise and revive process of my earlier works. We’ve been updating a number of the romances and just recently re-released Book #5 in the St. John’s Series. It was originally titled Gudrun, but we changed that to Nordic Desire. It seemed like the right idea, seemed to fit. We have one more title to go to complete the series, but since the book Wildflower also features the city of St. John’s, I’m considering pulling it into the series as book #7.

I’d also like to wax poetic about the new covers for the series. These covers rock. Check out the latest, Nordic Desire.

All right, just so you don’t think I’m slacking here, the third story in the Children of the Wild is nearing completion. just the final chapter or two to go. I’ve also got a start on the second in the Elvish Chronicles. Seriously thinking of devoting a lot of time to the Chronicles this years. Having said that, Kait Nolan put an idea in my head and I can’t seem to shake it. I just might write something completely different for the heck of it. Anyway, that’s a big maybe at this point.

So, would anybody be interested in a story where the everyday world has a fair sprinkling of magic mixed in? Let me know what you think.

So, on to other stuff. I’m currently working on the third book in the Children of the Wild series. hoping to have it ready for you in January, and also working on the second book of the Elvish Chronicles which I hope to have read by Late February or early March.

In the meantime we will be continuing to upgrade and re-release some of my earlier works, beginning with the last two of the St. John’s Series.

See, lots of interesting things coming your way from the Castle MacLeod workshop.

More Writing Process

Hi folks,

It’s time to tell you about the writing of Lady Seeker now. This was an odd one for me. I had the story in my mind, but no main character. Usually, the character comes to me first then tells me her story. This one was so very different. I let it sit for a while, just making notes, but not having any clear vision for the girl. Finally, in the throes of panic  I began to write down events and traits from my own life. She began to come to life then. No, she’s not me and I’m not her, but we do share a few common traits and similar events in our backgrounds.

Get your copy today before the next book comes out. 🙂

Those of you who know me well will know which traits Lennie has gained from me, and which bits of life experience we share. However, her ease of finding things is not one of them, I lose stuff all the time.

Okay, now a teaser for you from Watcher and the Warrior.

Lacy scooped up her backpack and hurried out of the alley. She’d put up one hell of a fight, but she’d been finished and she knew it. Lady Blue. Her stalker was Lady Blue. Why? Why in the name of all the gods was that nightmare stalking her. Lacy had no fear of any human, she’d fight any who came along, but legend had it Lady Blue wasn’t human. She’d seen what the woman was capable of. That was not a fight Lacy was in a hurry to face.

Okay, that’s all you get until the book comes out in a few days from now. Enjoy!

The Muse

Hi Folks,

Well, here we are again with more on my writing process. Today I will tell you about writing the latest book in the Nova Series, Red Nova. Red Nova is my favorite in the series and it was the easiest to write. Here’s what happened.

I had just finished the fixes and up dates on another book and, to reward myself, I decided to take a day off and just play World of Warcraft. While I waited for the computer to boot up, I felt a presence behind me. I felt a touch on my shoulder and heard a voice in my mind. “There’s no time for this, you need to tell my story. Now, here’s what happened. After we …”

That’s how it was. Deann dictated her story and she wouldn’t let me stop until it was finished. We all dream of that magic book that writes itself, and I’ve had a few, but Red Nova was pure magic to write.

So, that’s how I came to write Red Nova. Next time I hope to be telling you where to get your copy of Lady Seeker which is due out any day. Starting in early June I’ll tell you about writing the Children of the Goddess Series starting with Lady Blue.

Well, that’s it for me today. Have a great weekend and remember to take time to read a book or two.

Why a Publishing House.

Hi folks,

Well, as I posted earlier this week, I have signed a contract with Shadoe Publishing. ( http://shadoepublishing.com/ ) 

Well you may ask why, as I have been preaching the gospel of self publishing for years. Here’s the story.


Self publishing is a lot of work, albeit incredibly rewarding. Life, however, sometimes demands your attention be elsewhere. Thus it has been for me this past year. It reached the point where I was faced with perhaps having to give it up altogether.

Enter Shadoe Publishing. I’ve spoken with publishers before and remained unimpressed. Not so much this time. This lady spent more time telling me what she was willing to do for me  as well as making it clear what was expected of me.

It seemed like the right fit at the right time, soooo, now I am officially with a publisher. You can expect a few changes in how and when books come out, but the great news is, everything will soon be available in paperback too.

Okay, that’s it for now. I’ll keep you posted on all new developments as they arise.

Writing Process

Hi folks,

Today is something a bit unusual for me. Today’s post is part of a blog hop. I’ll answer four questions below. This will give you a window into  how I do what I do. I’ll also post links to some other great writers so you can see their process and compare. I warn you, the mind of a writer is a unique thing and everybody works differently. So, here we go.

Me, hard at work.


1. What are you currently working on?
Right now I’m finishing up the fixes and rewrites for my next release, Blue Rider. By next week I expect to be working on the third book in the Haunted Treasure Series.

2.How does your writing process work?
My process is pretty primitive. I walk dogs, knit, play World of Warcraft, or sit and stare out the window until an idea hit. It usually doesn’t take very long. Once I have the idea I jot it down in a fresh notebook then set up the document in the computer. Once I have the format set I celebrate with chocolate.
From that point, I sit to the computer each morning until I have a minimum of two thousand words written. Simple as that. I write the first draft from beginning to end, no plotting, no planning, just tell the story.
Once I have a first draft then I go back through it and clean it up, fix the boo-boos that I find and send it to the editor. We then go back and forth until we are both satisfied it is ready. That’s it, the whole process.

3.How does your work differ from others of its genre?
I’m not truly sure how to answer that. Perhaps that’s best left to my readers to answer. However, I will tell you, I don’t like cliff hangers, even if the book is in the middle of a series. Each book I write comes with a satisfactory conclusion. The reader will know there is more to come, but there is breathing room.

4.Why do you write what you do?
The simple answer, I can’t help it, I just have to. I began years ago when a friend told me I should write a self help book. That was a bust. Instead I started writing romance so I could share the things I have learned about creating a happy and fulfilling life through story telling. I moved on to sci-fi / adventure because I love it and now I usually blend the two. What can I say, I love telling stories.

Okay, that’s how it works for me, folks, now, please go check out these awesome authors to see how they do it. I know I’m going to.
