1st Edits Complete

I've just finished the first round of edits for Convincing Emily and emailed them to Siren yesterday (5/29/13). Now, I'm waiting for the cover art and the second round of edits. More information coming soon. 

Story Excerpt:

     Being a bear shifter wasn’t the easiest thing for a woman. The ability to shift into a giant, four-hundred-pound polar bear was amazing at times, but gaining that much weight in a matter of minutes, wasn’t the most flattering ability a female could have. Emily Barre loved her clan with her entire being, but there were often times when she felt something was missing, like she didn’t quite belong. She’d already passed her thirtieth birthday and still remained single. She’d had her share of lovers in the past, other men in her clan, but they eventually left. Mates were sacred among their kind, and all shifters longed for that person or persons who would complete them.
     Emily huffed out a breath and blew her hair from her eyes. She picked up her cleaning rag and resumed wiping the counter of Mack’s Bar and Grill. As far as jobs went, it wasn’t so bad. She’d gotten to know most of the regulars who frequented the place. Some of them were friendly with a smile always in place, while others sat quietly and nursed their drink in private. Everyone had a story, some good and some bad.
Emily was lonely, and even when surrounded by a room full of people, she felt alone. It was past time she found her destiny and settled down. She wanted to have cubs, to feel connected in a way she never had before. Her heart felt heavy in her chest as she looked around. Would she need to leave her home in order to find what she was looking for or was there someone here she’d overlooked? She glanced up and stared blankly at the ceiling, wondering what fate had in store for her.
     She blinked a few times. It seemed like just yesterday Evan Novikov was walking her home through the snow. She had been dating the twins for a while until their mate, Katie, showed up. She had no harsh feelings toward the woman. Mates were sacred. That damn mantra played through her mind repeatedly, and Emily let it comfort her like a warm blanket. Just once though, it would be nice if she was someone’s mate. She yearned to be a priority. If she ever found him or them, she vowed to never let go.
     The phone rang, startling her from her wistful thoughts. Emily took a deep breath and snatched it up. “Mack’s.”
     “Emily…we need the clan. It’s an emergency, Emma’s been taken by a wolf.” Takoda Youngblood panted, sounding frantic and Emily froze, fear choking her. Poor Emma, she was a human the Youngblood brother’s had recently claimed and marked. How could a mere human defend themselves against a wolf? “Emily!”
     “I’m on it.” Heart in her throat, she hung up the phone. Without thought, she raised two fingers to her mouth and pierced the room with an ear-splitting whistle. The ruckus in the bar stopped and all eyes turned toward her. “Clan emergency…Emma’s been taken by a wolf.” She sneered, and en masse her clan jumped to their feet and began stripping down.
     The noise became almost deafening with chairs scraping back and the growling and snarling echoing through the bar. This was one great thing about being a shifter. Clans always stuck together. They would all march into the forest as one and take back what was theirs. If you messed with one, you dealt with them all. An arm reached out and stopped Emily as she started to strip down, preparing for battle.
     “Not so fast, little sister. You stay here. I don’t think all of us are needed.”
     “Damn it, Tommy. I’m not a child.” She pulled away, hating the way he always babied her in front of the rest of the clan. Most of them thought she was useless. This time, she would show them she could fight alongside them, that she was an equal.
     “It’s Thomas,” he scolded, “and I think you should stay behind. It’s one wolf. I’m pretty sure we can handle it.” He pulled his T-shirt off and patted her on the head.
     Before she could respond, the bar cleared out and she was left standing there, alone. Emily ground her teeth, wanting to scream. She hated being left behind. Tightening her fists, she stomped out of the bar and watched as her other clan mates stripped and headed into the forest. She wouldn’t be left behind, not again. Emily took off her clothes quickly, shivering from the cold before she let her bear rise to the surface and shift.

Convincing Emily

Siren has set the release date for Convincing Emily, Wolff Pack, Book 2. This book will be released August 2013.

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Update

Hello Friends!

Things are changing in my life. I applied to a college here in my area to get a higher education, I'm moving, and life had been a bit of a roller coaster.

Convincing Emily is complete and was submitted to Siren Publishing on 4/30/13. This will be the 2nd book in the Wolff Pack series. At first, I thought this book would be apart of the Novikov Clan since Emily is a polar shifter, but this trio spends most of their time in North Ridge, MN with the wolves. The men in this book are from the Wolff Pack and made an appearance in 'His Mating Mark', Cole & Charlie.

Rough Draft BLURB:

Emily Barre is a polar bear shifter living with her clan in Alaska. She’s been dreaming about her happily ever after since she was a cub in the form of a big, strong male bear. Unfortunately, none of the men in her clan fit the bill.

Cole and Charlie Ward are in Alaska on a mission for their Alpha, Gabe Wolff.  They both are caught off guard by an enticing scent…their mate. They want her immediately, but Emily runs.

Can a skittish bear fall for two wolves? Can Emily get over her past?

Character Inspiration: 
My readers know that I love to share pictures that inspire my characters. Meet Emily Barre and identical twin, Cole and Charlie Ward
