You probably noticed that there isn’t a pre-order set up for the next DragonFate novel, or even a cover for you to check out. That’s because I’m not sure whose story will be next. There are several possibilities.
I had thought that Alasdair would be next – it’s time for him to be healed enough for his firestorm, and I like Yasmina – but then Wynter showed up at Bones. The energy between Wynter and Arach is interesting, and I like the idea of writing about wolf shifters with attitude. They might jump queue.
On the other hand, things are intriguing between Sebastian and Sylvia. I’ve left them in an interesting place but want to know more. Is it time to step away from the dragons to explore a little vampire romance?
Another contender is the romance of Theo and Mel, with the love triangle of Raymond. Theo and Mel have been in the background so far, and this is the story I was most intrigued about writing when I began this series. Hmm.
In the meantime, now that the magick has gone back to Regalia, it’s a good opportunity to return to its sister planet of Incendium. Oh, and the next hero there is Nero, an aspiring wizard. What a perfect coincidence! Look for Wyvern’s Wizard next, probably in the summer. I won’t put up a pre-order for this one until the book is done. I need a little break from deadlines right now.
I’m charging along on Dragon’s Heart, which is Rhys and Lila’s book, and having a wonderful time with their story. It’s so interesting to include heroines with powers of their own, and I’m loving the challenge of building out each heroine’s world, history and abilities, then fitting that in with the world of the Pyr. Lila is a selkie with an intriguing past who challenges Rhys’ expectations in so many ways. (It’s good for him to have things shaken up a bit. He likes to think he has everything sorted out, planned and organized.) She’s one of my favorite kinds of characters, a healer who is wounded herself. I think you’ll really enjoy their story!
I’ve also been adding to the Pinterest board for their book, and you can have a peek at my inspiration right here.
I’ve also been working on Sebastian and Sylvia’s story, which will ultimately become a book in its own right – and that has drawn me into the Coven of Mercy, with all of those characters’ stories. I think I’m going to be in the realm of DragonFate for a while!
Have you ordered your copy of Rhys and Lila’s story yet? July 22 isn’t that far away!
