Staying true to the muse #rewriting #WildHunt

Staying true to the muse - a lesson in creativity

A few weeks ago, I made the decision to buy back rights to two of my series-the Wild Hunt and Elemental Desire series. It was a difficult choice to make for a lot of reasons, but one I'm glad I made. I won't bore you with the details of why I took the path I did, but I wanted to share an important realization. In an effort to make a word count limit, I didn't stay true to my muse. Yes, the stories were there, so was the happily ever after, but I cut corners. The result was that I shorted my characters and their once in a lifetime journey. Having the stories in my possession again allows me the chance to expand on the books I'd originally created and give my characters the time to tell their tales the way they wanted in the first place.
Suffice it to say, I'm extremely excited about slipping back into the sexy, paranormal worlds of the Wild Hunt and Elemental Desire series. I've halted my new projects and have jumped headfirst into rewriting and reediting these books so I'll be able to rerelease them as soon as possible.
So what's coming up, you might ask?

For the Wild Hunt series:

Hunter Sacrificed - the prequel to the Wild Hunt series

Arawn, Lord of the Underworld, understands pain and suffering. Every second of every day, he shares in the agony of those who have been wronged and vows to avenge them. His sacrifice turns him into a pawn, but there’s strength in numbers. And he’ll need every one of his Huntsmen to win the greatest game of all time — the Wild Hunt.

Hunter Deceived - book 1 (originally released as Hunter Betrayed)

Every day, Harley is tempted to embrace her dark heritage. Only a promise made to her ghostly savior stops her from becoming a monster, but he’s not the hero she’s envisioned. He’s a Hunter bred to eliminate her kind. He’s also her only hope of salvation.

Calan, the leader of the Wild Hunt, was created to protect mankind from the Unseelie Court, not love one of them, but Harley is irresistible. Saving her, on the other hand, has the potential to damn him… and the world.

Hunter Forsaken - book 2

For the Elemental Desire series:

Mist Revealed (originally released as Mist Unveiled)

Cat has one love in her life—science. Facts rule her, not passion. At least it doesn’t until an unknown deadly virus claims her sister’s life. Cat’s quest for answers takes her to Greenland and drops her into the arms of the one man who sways her devotion from logic to passion. Rune stirs her lusts, ignites her desires and fuels her carnal cravings, but he isn’t simply a lover, nor is he human. He’s a weapon, one that has the potential to save or destroy her.

Rune, a child of the mist, awakens into a world hovering on the verge of destruction. Rising temperatures have released his enemies from their frozen prison without his knowledge. He searches for them but finds Cat, a human with the power to save him and the world. He hungers for her—blood, body and soul. Every moment of shared passion convinces him of the truth—she’s his greatest treasure, one he’ll die to keep.

Book 2 - coming early 2016!
