Meet Eliza.

She’s a bit prickly and no one has ever called her nice.

But she gets stuff done. And when you’re the vampire running New York City, you get stuff done-nice doesn’t figure into it.

Meet Adam.

Being the sole vampire in the small college town of Albion, Michigan means Adam never goes hungry. It also means the residents are safe – for the most part. Dead humans tend to scare away living humans, and that’s no good for Adam.

Self-control, manipulation, and demanding the will of others to bend toward his desires, Adam plays a precarious game with the lives of those he encounters.

If you let him win, maybe he’ll let you live.

Inspiration.

Today, I’d like to talk about one of my favorite authors: Anne Rice.

The featured image was first used in a post about how I came to be in possession of the books shown. Click here to read it.

When I was 20 or so, a friend of mine lent me her copy of Interview with the Vampire. I devoured it. I couldn’t get enough of Louis and Claudia. Even Lestat, bad guy that he was, got under my skin and found a permanent place in my heart. I had never read anything like it. And to find out there was a series and a whole universe of the sexy, mysterious, melancholic vampires out there. I needed to know more, to read more, about them.

Over the years, I’ve read several other vampire authors, and don’t get me wrong, I love finding a new series or a new author, but I can never forget the influence that Anne Rice has had on me and on my writing.

Who are your influences? Or, do you find yourself gravitating toward the same person, writing style, genre? Leave me a comment and let me know.

A Planning Pantser.

In fiction writing, there are typically two kinds of authors: planners and pantsers. Oftentimes, we fall into both categories, but lean one way or the other. I’m generally a pantser.

Planner or PantserPantsers are authors who ‘fly by the seat of their pants.’ They don’t plan much about the story’s direction, if they plan at all. I like to come up with a general idea and then see where the characters and my whims take me.

I am pleased to announce…I have an idea!

* * * shhh, shhh, I can’t hear over all the clapping and cheering * * *

More importantly, I have an idea of the direction of Book 2. No working title yet.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I’ll tell you this: Alice is a badass.

To hold you over until Book 2 is ready, why not buy Turning Point on Amazon now?
