FIRST, I wanted to announce the winner for the weekend blog! I forgot to do so yesterday. It's been a really hectic last couple of days! Becky is the winner! Thanks to everyone who entered! There are tons more contests coming up!
To Tempt the Wolf is officially out TODAY!!! No more, it's coming soon. It's almost here. IT'S here! :)Thanks to everyone who has so anxiously awaited the third book in the series! :)
I keep feeling like I've got more of the series out already because of all the gorgeous covers and when I was thinking this is only the third one??? That's why! LOL
A site in Canada wants to post a book cover blog about Legend of the White Wolf even...They are beautiful and I want to thank the cover art staff at Sourcebooks for making it happen!
Woohoo! That was quick! The SciFiGuy.ca already posted a terrific blog about Legend of the White Wolf here! I loved what he had to say. Thanks so much!!! And please, everyone stop by and comment on the cover! :) Thanks!!
I'll be interviewed there on Sep 16 for another free give-away, so be sure to drop by then!!!
Fans have asked, "Do you have any say in the cover design?"
Yes!!! I ask for a hunky man with a naked chest, the scenery that showcases the story, and the right kind of wolf--gray for the first three books of the series, an Arctic wolf for the 4th, and a red for the 5th book. I'll be back to a gray wolf for the 6th book. :) I send photos of the area that I'm writing about--Colorado backdrop in books one and two, and the Oregon coast in Book 3, the snowy woods in Maine for Book 4, and lush spring green Oregon forests in Book 5. And then the cover artists wield their magic wands and the covers are works of art. I love showing them off!
There's been some discussion on another loop that some like the scary monster type of werewolves. Hmm, for a horror scary story, they can be fine. But to me, a real wolf can be even more scary when it's riled up like this one is. :) No need to make them monster like. :)
And part of me knows that those "animated" scary horror wolves are just fake, whereas the idea of running into an aggravated wolf in the wilderness like this one sure makes the blood run cold!
And what's great about a real wolf is they have that nicer, loving side to them also. Whereas I can't see that if they're werewolf monster-like creatures.
This is Dad with junior. :) The adults adore the pups in a pack. So yep, I'll stick to real wolves when my werewolves shapeshift to that form.
So how to celebrate the third book in the series? First, chocolate is a no-no for dogs, so I imagine for wolves too. They love meat, though, so...steaks all around for everyone. And fresh spring water to wash it down. :) And wolves love to have fun, so definitely playing tag is a good game for all the partygoers. Just remember to run REALLY fast, in case the wolves get a little carried away. I mean, yes, they're werewolves and all, but you know how it is when guys are into playing games! They really get into the business of wanting to win. And they might forget they're werewolves and not plain old wolves.
And prizes? Absolutely! I'm here talking about researching various aspects of the wolf world for a chance at a free book.
For the rest of this week, I'll be here:

So have fun, and play nice...you never know what you might win to take home with you after the games are all done. :) Okay, I'm excited about beginning the 6th book in the series...and was consulting with one of my fellow librarians today at work about possibilities...and now??? I'm ready!
What is the part of the story you like the best when you are reading? The opening that sets the stage? The middle where you've learned quite a bit about the characters already? The drawing to a close?
