I finally have a bit of time to post that Midnight's Paradox is now with the editors! I'm hoping that I get it out on August 31st.
It's been a long campaign literally and figuratively. The irony is that Blake's story is about fathers and stepfathers. Obviously I didn't expect something to happen to me. After all, this is fiction.
I had a couple of alternative endings but decided on one that.....I'll leave you guys to read it. ;)
I came up with the blurb for Paradox yesterday. Ask any author and I'm sure they'll say that writing blurbs is a necessary evil. So Here goes....
Three years after the raid on Dac Valerian’s club, Dare You!, and the discovery of a secret, Blake finds himself in the streets and closes of Edinburgh in search of answers – still believing that he isn’t worthy of being called a Cynn Cruor. Thing is, he didn’t anticipate meeting a woman so beautiful in her simplicity that his Cynn Cruor instincts demand he protect and claim her as his.
Phoebe Ruth has read of the Cynn Cruors in her father’s journal and believes that they are the ravings of a grief-stricken man after losing her mother years ago. A chance encounter with a stranger in Edinburgh Castle’s Great Hall, being beset by thugs in the cemetery, and a cryptic note from a tourist crying for help makes her realise that the Cynn Cruors world is real.
So is the Cynn Cruor immortal whose kisses burn a trail into her soul. The warrior whose touch ignites the fire she didn’t realise she possessed. And whose burden she’d willingly take as her own unaware that their lives are inexplicably linked in more ways than one.
An immortal searching for himself. A woman discovering that nothing is as it seems to be.
Blake and Phoebe must accept the truth of who they really are if they want to have a future together in the middle of a war that can rip them apart.
Hope you like blurb!
I'm taking a break for a while. Writers need to move away from their characters so that they can get a better perspective on how to write the next one in the series. Blake's story was the most complex story I've written - the hardest so far. The Cynn Cruors world is becoming more real that I need to fill in the gaps which I don't see when I'm too engrossed with writing my characters' points of view. There will also be a spin-off though I'm not telling at the moment!
