Behind

Oops I'm behind on my blog posts...

if you were wondering, Chapter 24 of Taken by the Wolf is up on Lit.  It's got some answers to questions people have been having.  I think it's kind of funny that some people think I went "too far" with one aspect of it... that was planned from the very beginning and I think it's a lot less messed up than things I've written for other stories, so I find it amusing that it's the line for some people.  I'm also kind of amused by how upset people are that the Wolf is letting other people touch Bella and Alex... he's an anti-hero, not a damaged hero that just needs some TLC to turn himself around.  Granted, I think he's a lot more fond of Bella and Alex than he has been of any of his other previous Moon pets, but that doesn't mean his personality is going to change.

Probably the most amusing comment I've gotten thus far is the one saying I'm degrading women.  lol.  apparently they just skipped the chapters between Alex and the Wolf?  Or Cora?  Or Lorena?  I wanted to do waaaaaaaay more with Cora, but I ended up deciding it doesn't actually fit into the story line, it literally would just be me dragging out the story because I want to fit Cora and Trace back into it somehow.  *sigh*

I'm right on track to have On His Knees out next month, official release date should be July 15th =)

Right now I'm trying to pick out the cover - thoughts?

Part of me wants to keep it beachy like the other Venus Rising covers, but I also really like the ring one.  Which one would make you look at the cover and think "I should read that"?

  2. I like the ring but *pedant moment* isn't Hilary a blonde not a brunette?
    I like the beach one too but *another pedant moment* do they go to the beach in the story?
    The other two don't say Liam or Hilary to me though. Sorry.
    (*third pedant moment* Always meant to say that I like the cover to 'Punishing His Ward' but bras are a C20th invention.)
    Tx, toddling off...

  3. The ring cover is great for Liam and Hilary. The first cover is also great and maybe you could save it for something else. The one with the man is not interesting. There are more exciting ones out there. The couple on the beach is wispy. BUT i love your work and would read anything you wrote even if you use M.L. Briers type covers.

    2. LOL1 I am one of those who had problems leaving a reply. I wanted to leave a name but that went wonky and had to do it again so took the easy way out and went with anon.

  4. Thought I'd already commented here and on another post, not sure what happened.
    Anyway, I like the ring but thought Hilary was blonde and the girl in the ring is a brunette. The solo pics don't cry out Liam or Hilary to me, and I'd be confused if there's no beach in the story if you used the beach one.
    Sorry. I echo Anon's comment above, I'd read it anyway, but understand that covers are important.
    Tx
