I finally managed to get back on my Pinterest account. If you want to see all of my covers, I made board for them.
I also plan on posting some new book related images soon. So check back once and a while for updates.
Some of you may recall my recent fan request for a Bad Boy Spectrum, and I got to thinking… why should the ladies be left out of the fun? So today I am going to attempt to give you the ladies from best to worst.
You really don’t get any nicer than Keely. Sometimes she’s too nice, even to people who don’t deserve her. Thankfully she’s got just the right amount of backbone stand up for herself when she need to.
Amy (Is My Mate A Robot?)
A total marshmallow… and just a little bit sneaky.
She mostly thinks she is doing the right thing. Or at least what she thinks is the right thing.
Anna (Luna in The Dark)
Stuck between the rock and the hard place she’s trying to do right by everyone.
But sometimes you just can’t.
Sometimes you have to make yourself happy.
A vampire who has never tasted human blood, and for some reason no matter how much she goes though she’s generally trusting. Though she does sometimes try to play both ends off the middle, it’s usually for a good goal.
Tracy (She’s Your What?)
She sharp, and she knows when to keep her mouth shut. Though not being big of forgiveness is a serious issue for her.
Just because you can’t do something yet does not mean you don’t want to. She pays attention and she can be extremely insightful about the minds of others. When she decides to use that to her advantage… watch out.
Zoey (Fur, Fangs and Secrets)
There is something to be said for being a really, really good liar. It takes time and Zoey has had plenty of that.
Hannah (Is My Mate A Robot?)
Another veteran liar, but it can be hard to blame someone who has no ability to grasp emotion for responding to a sudden influx of feeling. But hey… that’s having an Alpha mate for you.
Juliana (The Beloved’s Endgame)
If love is all you need the Juliana has too much of what she needs. Since a direct confrontation won’t help yet she’ll do everything she can to get her way. Other people are handy tools after all.
She a manipulative man stealer who is willing to get between true mates to get what she wants.
Oh and lets not forget, she’s the cause of a war.
Revenge has its rightful place in this world. While she does bad things… she has a good reason. Well… most of the time.
Cassidy (Hunter’s Night)
Her personal sense of morality aside, she does kill people for a living.
Livia ( The Beloved’s Legacy)
What’s a little murder…. as long as you’re getting your way.
Today, I had a fan request. She wanted me to rank my male characters from Baddest Boy to Nicest Guy. It took more thought than I imagined it would, but since I can’t say no to a fan, here is the list, from nicest to baddest.
Josh (The Hunter’s Night)
A real match in a man who can be with a strong woman, without needing to minimize her. He truly sees himself as half of a couple, and he knows how to trust. Little wonder he earned the heart of one of the hardest people on earth.
A true love, and a true equal to Lilly. It’s a shame he has to die (see below) for the books to move on. Still, he has some selfish moments, but whose perfect? We’re only human….
Except for those of us who aren’t.
Sure he betrays a few people, but always with a valid good reason, and always in service of protecting the life of a certain special other.
On one hand he’s kind, he’s sweet and he lets Keely take her time. He really gets to know his lady-love and he never puts the pressure on to mate.
On the other, he wasn’t exactly forthright about things, and he didn’t mind doing a little dirty to get around the competition.
Carter (The Hunter’s Night)
He loves his mate, and his mistakes are mostly in the past… mostly.
For being about to work with his enemies for her sake, he gains a spot on the top half of this list. Forgiveness isn’t easy.
Mike (The Beta and The Omega)
He lied. It was stupid and he was willing to betray someone he cared about in a split second bad choice. Or maybe he was just willing to go for what we wanted, no regrets? You decide.
Harry (Is My Mate A Robot?)
On one hand he’s willing to take what’s not his.
On the other, he’s just respecting her wishes. What less could you do for love?
Turning your human mate into a werewolf. A good idea, but an awful execution. Eventually, he gets the lesson, but it takes some time for that stubborn streak to work its way out.
Cole (Fur, Fangs and Secrets)
Kidnapping is a crime. No matter how nice you are about it and if your mate does not choose you… then the gentlemanly thing to do is to let it go.
Marcus Duprey (Luna in The Dark – not the same Marcus Below)
Yup, kidnapping is still a crime.
And keeping a girl from her family is uncool.
But it gets worse.
Trey (Is My Mate a Robot?)
He breaks his mate just to have her. I can’t tell you more without a spoiler alert, so I won’t. Lets just say the story ends in a very dark place.
He’s above Marcus only marginally, because everyone survives him.
Because they’re getting what you want, and doing whatever it takes to get what you want. Murder? Lies? Manipulation? Murder again? All worth it if he can have Lilly.
The only thing worse than a murder? Quite possibly when you’re willing to throw everyone into upheaval to have what you want. Plus, there is a creepy factor here when it comes to a certain interest. Making an alchemist skin crawl is hard, but he manages it.
You don’t become the king of the vampires for no reason. Since the book is as yet completely unpublished I can’t tell you anymore yet.
But bloody would be a good word.
So that’s the list. Best to worse in my eyes. If you disagree, I’d love to hear from you about it.
I just wanted to let all of you know that my newest offering Luna in The Dark is out. You can find it for a variety of file formats (including Kindle, Nook, PDF, RTF and many other file formats here.) A sample is published on Wattpad.
You can see the cover art here on the left and for those of you who are curious here is a sneak peek on what the book is about:
Waking up in the bed of your Alpha mate is disorienting, especially for a wolf whose never met another of her kind before. Torn between the man her wolf calls to and the vampire who raised her, Anna has a big choice to make.
I hope you’ll consider checking out the sample, or buying a copy of the book, it’s only $1.99.
Currently, I have two projects in the works. One is the start of a new project. The other is the third book in a series of novellas. I have two of them on Wattpad, and they’re doing OK. Not amazing, but I love the stories.
The other is important to the world. You couldn’t know this, unless you live in my head, but all of my stories in the supernatural realm will eventually connect in one story that brings them together. That’s the story in question.
It’s big. It’s important and to be honest it intimidates me a little. I might be avoiding it out of fear.
They’ll both get done, but the fear is an issue. I’m starting a full-time, practical but boring so that I can eat and pay my bills job. I know it’s going to be draining, but I need to do it to move onto the next stage of my life. So not finishing up one means the other might not happen for some time. I’ll need to adjust and the commute is… not insubstantial.
If any of you have thoughts on the matter, I’d love to hear them. Maybe there is a way to split the difference?
