Happy Easter Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to my blog post. I’m excited to participate in the hop. I’m giving away a copy of one of my books from my backlist! All you need to do is leave a comment on my post – and if you subscribe, let me know, and I’ll enter your name twice! To be fair, I’ll be using a random name generator to choose the winner.
Also if you want to be a character in my next vampire book go to my post below and comment! http://www.vikilyn.com/be-in-my-next-book/
Now, for those readers who don’t know who I am — I write paranormal and contemporary gay romance.
When I write a paranormal it involves world building and that means a LOT of surfing the ‘net’ for information. Creating a new world with its own set of rules can be challenging. To hone in on my research, I pick a culture or two, and use their myths to build my world.
My vampire series with Loose Id has Kresniks which are the vampire slayers. I created their culture and history from Baltic/Slavic myths. My paranormal that I’m currently writing is about angels, their Protectors and demons that plague them. In my story, heaven has two realms – the highest echelon Caelestia – the city of the Hierachia; where seven archangels including the oracle of God – the Vox Dei reside. In Taelestia, the ‘regular’ angels share the city with the Protectors. My archangels are loosely based on Catholic angel hierarchy. The heavenly cities have an ancient Greek ‘feel’ to them, the language based on Latin. I haven’t sold this book yet, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll be available by the end of this year.
Now to switch to contemporary! My new release is the third book in my contemporary Woodland Village series – John’s Match, and my 10th m/m romance!
This time it’s Ryan’s CFO and VP that’s having heart burn when he needs to befriend a recluse writer that detests him at first sight!
Fantasy writer Scott Marwick just might be John’s financial savior if John can convince Scott to sign over the character rights for a new computer game. John befriends Scott for one purpose — to get him to sign — never planning on falling in love. When John shatters Scott’s trust, can Scott forgive and move on from his past mistakes?
John Kramer discovers two guys humping on the hood of his Ferrari in the parking lot of the local gay bar. When he finds one of the pair alone and in a drunken stupor, John drives him home. To his surprise, the young man’s father is his new next door neighbor, Scott Marwick. Tempers flare when Scott accuses John of getting his son inebriated and taking advantage of him. John plans to never see the man again.
Then John’s boss flips out when he finds out the jerk next door is the Scott Marwick, a temperamental, but famous fantasy writer. The elusive author could save their company from financial ruin if they can get him to sign over his characters for a computer game. Ryan insists John befriend Scott, show him around the Village and get him to agree to a meeting.
The last thing Scott needs is friends. He moved to Woodland Village to forget about the past and to write. Since his partner’s death three years ago, he hasn’t written one word, and his agent, publisher, and fans are clamoring for the final book of his award-winning series. His life is spiraling out of control and he doesn’t know if he can finish his series. He doesn’t need the complication of love and he certainly wouldn’t associate his name with a computer game.
But when John’s life begins to fall apart, Scott must decide where his loyalties lie — with John or his principles.
