On the Hunt with Ellora’s Cave Authors

wantedonthehuntWhen Ellora’s Cave posted a call for books in the On the Hunt theme, I couldn’t wait to get started. Hot books with bounty hunters? Sign me up!

And fortunately or unfortunately, depending on whether you asked me in November or December, I chose to work on this book during National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. This is a month where authors pledge to write a 50,000 word novel in November. On November 1st, I was raring go to. On November 4th, I thought I made a mistake. How on earth could I do this? I must have been out of my mind.

The more bloodshot my eyes grew and the more sleep-deprived I became, I started to see the end of the tunnel. Although I wasn’t sure I could even write 20,000 words at the beginning of the month, during the last week, I started to have fun with it. The more the characters revealed themselves to me, the more I loved the story. The premise I thought was fun–a young woman reinventing herself as a singer of an 80s metal band–my dream as a 16 year old, ha ha! Well, she happened to be a vampire and had no idea that a shapeshifting bounty hunter was tracking her down.

What was even more fun for me was how the characters clashed. Vampires and shapeshifters didn’t mix. Both Devon and Layla approached each other with caution as the enemy they were supposed to loathe. Their taunts were only a ruse to cover the mutual attraction they had for each other.

A forbidden attraction.

Devon St. Clair is the bounty hunter hired to track her down. As a shapeshifter with extraordinary skills, his reputation is known throughout the supernatural world.

They should hate each other, but instead they’re keeping the sheets steamy. When circumstances force them on the run together, their preconceived notions are challenged.

  1. Great post! I often experience the phenomenon you describe, where the writing starts out feeling very slow and difficult, and then at some point I hit my stride and start to have a good time. Love the 80s cover band thing, too — that sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. Bounty Hunters are hot because they are portrayed as tough guys. But all tough guys have a tender side that the right woman has to find. So makes for a great story to read!
