Thursdays, this month, are saved for snippets from The Lady in the Mist, The Western Werewolf Legend #1. The second book in this series is coming soon, so I wanted to devote Thursdays to sharing small parts of Tyler and Sonja’s story with the readers. Please drop me a line and let me know what you think. Remember, you can pick up a sample of the story at Amazon entitled, The Lady in the Mist, A Werewolf’s tale for free!
Her anxious directive caught him off guard. Ty opened his eyes and blinked. Sonja stood in front of him with her forehead creased in frustration. The effort to free him from his pants proved too much. Did she realize how beautiful she looked standing there in the half-light of the sun streaming through the window? Ty’s head swam as he watched her frustration with the buttons of his trousers.
“Here, let me.” Ty stilled her hands and deftly undid his pants, stepping out. The scare along his thigh, still angry and tender, stretched taught. Ty flinched involuntarily. How long had it been since he’d been with a woman?
She reached out and laid trembling fingers on his arm.
He swore low as his shaft jumped. His blood, already warm, surged through his body like a fire through dry tender. Unable to stop the rush, he let his head fall back and reveled in the sensation. No woman had ever made him feel like Sonja did.
Her slow glide downward awakened nerve endings, igniting them into flames. Tentative fingers slid along the taught flesh just above the crisp hair surrounding his shaft. Her face filled with anticipation as she touched his heat. Closing her eyes, she smiled as he throbbed in her fist. Suddenly, her eyes flew open and she reached out, taking his hand in hers as she picked up her skirt and headed for the bedroom.

When you don’t want to go into the family business and bucking your father can get you killed, what do you do?
If you’re Rayea, daughter of Satan, you get the hell out of Hell!
Rayea discovers what life can truly be like with a trip to the House of G, earth and plans to return to hell to face her greatest fear – her family.
Ms. Thomas paints a vivid picture of a young woman’s trip in self-discovery while trying to do the right thing for those she’s come to care deeply for. She chooses a different path from the one her father chose for her – will she survive?
The Vampire from Hell, Part 4 should answer the question.
I loved the concept of a fire shooting vampire who uses the internet to learn all she can about humans. She wants desperately to be one, but living among them is a good second choice. Her journey is fraught with conflict and puzzles she must solve because lives depend on her. Strong and smart mouthed, Rayea is a wonderful heroine. I loved this fantasy paranormal book!
So, who’s doing Nanowrimo this year? November is under way and I have committed to writing 50,000 words in thirty days. Who’s with me?
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Nannowrimo, the concept is simple. You accept the challenge to write a novel in a month. Oh, did I mention the letters stand for National Novel Writing Month? The website explains all you need to know, www.nanowrimo.org. I said I was committed, by the end of the month I may be committed.
With the interest in The Lady in the Mist, The Western Werewolf Legend, I decided to write a follow-up book entitled Waking up Dead. Tyler Loflin and Sonja Brooks will learn how to deal with being werewolves in love as they battle vampires disguised as Yankee soldiers.
You can keep up with my adventure this month as I try to complete my first draft of Waking up Dead. You’ll have a firsthand look at how I’m progressing and some of the tips and obstacles I encounter along the way. I’ve started the journey with my first post – check it out!
Nanowrimo Update – Setting Sail
November 4, 2012 – Since this is my first year of Nanowrimo, I wanted to document my travels through these unexplored waters. The trip should be exciting. Like any seasoned traveler, I planned on being prepared for delays and storms along the way. So I decided to stockpile a few words in case I found days where the writing weather was just impossible. Maneuvering through the Nanowrimo waters can be tricky. Learning how to paddle around was a problem for me in the beginning. But with a little help from my Nanowrimo “writing buddies” I managed to set sail on schedule.
I’m a panster when it comes to writing a novel, so a shell of an outline is all I stowed in the hull of my boat. Character development was documented in the first novel , check that off my packing list and we’re casting off with 8,000 words validated on the website. I’m happy to report the beginning of the novel is underway with an action scene and a rescue fiasco. My cast finds themselves in hot water and have to come up with a plan on the spot. A bit of back story inserted along the way will explain some interesting details of Sonja’s birth family as well as her mentor besides proving useful later on in the book. Check back in next week when I discover what Sonja and Ty will do to save the day. I’ll keep you posted as the month floats along. Happy Writing!
Ally Thomas, author of the Vampire from Hell series, asked me to answer a few questions she had about my latest release and I’d like to share those with you today. Please check out my book on Smashwords and Amazon.
Here it is…
How did you come up with the title for your book?
The Lady in the Mist refers to the hero’s first glimpse of a woman approaching him following an ambush by Yankee renegades. Tyler Loflin is sure of one thing – that he’s dying. The woman is shroud in mist as a fog rolls in. There’s fire and smoke impairing his view of the woman. All he can tell she is a vision, like an angel with golden hair. The working title was Renegade Rebel.
Did you brainstorm the idea for The Lady in the Mist with family and friends?
I talked extensively with my sister about this book and the protagonists. My characters have some serious decisions to make following some life altering events. How they react will have a lasting effect on their future.
How is The Lady in the Mist different from other books in this genre?
I love westerns and western romance. However, I also enjoy most storylines in the paranormal genre.I blended the two genres for this book. Really it’s a blend of western romance with paranormal elements involving werewolves and vampires.
The year is 1863 and the story begins in Pennsylvania near the Virginia border. Ty and Sonja are from opposite sides. She is a Yankee and he is a Rebel facing death. Her instinct is to save him despite his being the enemy. He is loyal to those he cares about and honorable to a fault. They fall in love before discovering the truth about one another. How they handle the changes they face will test their strength and their love.
Also I’d like to thank Ally for creating my cover for this book along with my other covers. She’s a great graphic artist as well as writer! Learn more about Ally and her books at allythomas.wordpress.com
