I don't write a series, it writes me. Sounds like a funny thing to say, but lately that has been how I’ve been feeling about world building. For example, when I sat down to write Unwanted Mate, for The Edge, I had this idea of how I thought the story should go. Two people who had known each other, one a shifter, for a while who were now coming to terms with the fact that they were meant to be together. Great. The story progressed as I imagined it would and I was happy.
But, I kept thinking. Gunther owns a bar and he lives above it. The bar is happening down below them. What is happening at the bar? Oh wow. There could be a whole series of things happening down stairs in the bar. Suddenly, I didn’t have a story I have a series.
However, bars, as much as we might sometimes wish otherwise when we are having a bad day, don’t exist outside of society, they have to be part of it. So, what was happening in the world right outside of Gunther’s bar that brought in patrons? Well, there is a major construction site going up down by the river. All of a sudden, we have a whole slew of characters that need their night on The Edge and I’ve found myself a series that I am excited to write.
Not to mention, the stories are HOT! Sizzling and so much fun to do. Comment here and tell me about your craziest night in a bar ever. One lucky winner will get to choose from my Decadent backlist and select a book.
Hope you’re all doing great today.
