And Now For Something Completely Different

For anyone who hasn't already heard, my next project is going to be the first book in a new series. White Wolf, book one of the Sons of Rome Series, kicks off a dark and epic paranormal adventure. As with all my books, it's character-driven and doesn't slot neatly into one category. Paranormal? Definitely. But featuring lots of action, some military history, and of course romance. Like Dartmoor, each book will have its own central plot, but the series will work best if read in order. Part war story. Part ghost story. Part love letter to the books that have inspired me.

Right now I'm in the research and strategizing part of the process, and that's always my favorite stage of every project. It's that magical time when your head is full to bursting with ideas; when you can shut your eyes and see your scenes unfold with aching clarity, accompanied by the perfect soundtrack. You splice together the best bits to form the perfect pretend movie trailer in your mind. Everything seems possible at this stage - before you start writing and muck the whole thing up with crappy writing. I've found that I love a story most before I start...and that by the end, I love it little, hoping that I've managed to give that love away to readers through the course of the telling.

In the months to come I'll be sharing what I can when I can, and hopefully convincing some of my regular readers to come on this new journey with me. I've hinted at the supernatural in some of my other work, tales of hellhounds and such, but now we're going all in. I can't wait.

  6. A new series, wow! I hope it's about a group of ex-military wolf shifters, that would be really interesting, written Lauren Gilley style!
