Day 2 in The Hot and Deadly Blog Hop!

It's day 2 in The Hot and Deadly Blog Hop! Join 51 authors for 3 days devoted to those compelling yet dangerous characters populating our novels. Dangerous in this case could also mean those sexy and loveable bad boy heroes.

I'd rather tell you about my shady sociopaths.

The Grand Prize is a Barnes & Noble gift card valued at more than $50 (still growing) Comment on all blogs with your email to win. Each participant is offering goodies on their blogs too. My prize is a readers-choice pick from my backlist. Read my first chapter excerpts and choose your prize on Amazon .

So, about that hot and deadly character...
Other than Hermes Online, which is sort of a sensual diary, my stories generally have bad guys to bring conflict to the table. My villains aren't simply people trying to have their way in the story, and they're never evil just to give the hero/heroine something to do. Besides being handsome or beautiful (which somehow makes them more evil!), they have complex cores and personalities too. As a reader, I like stories with reasons behind actions. My readers will find reasons these people are the way they are and these reasons are told throughout the story in small and large ways. I like to give the reader a point, maybe even a point of sympathy, from which to understand the inner workings of the bad guy.


My offering today are the trailers for books 1 and 2 in The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo. A saga told in two parts, this story was inspired by Native American mythology and a very real urban legend. It involves two ancient Native American shaman, one good, one evil. One tries to build a new life in the modern world, the other vows to take it all away...again. Hot and deadly!

Read the  prologue and 1st chapter of The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo (book 1 Ashewheteasu) with Amazon's Look Inside feature.
