Thanks so much to Lucy for hosting the Reader At Home Conference this week! As an author who was supposed to be at RT but couldn’t make it due to a scheduling conflict (sob!!!) I for one appreciate this fun, interactive week she’s put together for all of us. I hope you’re enjoying it as well!
Someone asked me recently how I came up with the idea for my new paranormal series, The Eternal Guardians. The answer is simple – I love Greek mythology. Always have, probably always will. When I was writing STOLEN FURY – my debut book (and 2010 Double Rita® finalist!) – I immersed myself in the stories from ancient Greece because my main characters were on the hunt for three priceless relics of the Three Furies. At the end of that book, I knew I wanted to write something else that was Greek myth centered, and an off-hand comment on the Bradford Bunch blog about the heroes – you know, those sexy guys who were half god, half man - ignited an entire series.
Today, the first book in that series hits store shelves. MARKED is a dark, sexy paranormal about an Argonaut hero who has to find the one woman who unknowingly fulfills an ancient prophecy that will save his people from extinction. The catch? My bad boy hero falls for that woman. Big time. Even knowing she’s marked for sacrifice. What better conflict could there be? If you love paranormals, I hope you give MARKED a chance. And if you love my romantic suspense books, I hope you enjoy this one as well. Same voice, same fast-paced adventure style, whole new world.
Since today is release day and I’m giddy, excited and nervous as hell, please help take my mind off what’s happening in the book stores. Do you read paranormals? Who are some of your favorite authors in the genre? And what cross-over genre authors have you fallen in love with lately?
