Terry Spear is one of my favourite paranormal romance writers and a frequent guest (yes I play favourites). Her werewolf series always entertains and pleases and Wolf Fever, the sixth book in the series was just released at the beginning of this month. Each book is a standalone and doesn't require you to have read previous volumes in the series. The series style is a perfect curl-up-on-the-couch paranormal romance and a mystery thriller. If you would like to win a signed copy of Wolf Fever or if you prefer, an earlier book from the series, just leave a comment or question for Terry and fill out the form at the end of the post. The giveaway is open to US and Canada residents until Midnight EST, December 23rd.
Terry's post today is about the writing process and how Wolf Fever originated. So on with the fun stuff. Welcome Terry !
If You Have to Have the Fever This Holiday Season, Make It WOLF FEVER!
Wolf Fever is the 6th book in the werewolf series to hit the book stores and for those who are following the stories, like the others, it’s a stand alone title. But it’s more directly linked to Destiny of the Wolf (book 2) than other books have been so far. That’s because the characters in this book are the same ones, for the most part, that were in Silver Town, Colorado in Destiny of the Wolf. And it’s because I had multiple requests from fans to see more of what became of Carol. I love it when readers find a character so interesting, a happily ever after must be found for him or her, too.
Like in each of my stories, I don’t plan who all will be in them and everything that they will do in the book. I started out with Lelandi wanting to solve the mystery of her sister’s death. And when she was at a historical celebration, I had a human woman wanting to make friends with her, while Lelandi’s wary. But Carol had a darker purpose in making friends with Lelandi. She had a warning to impart, knowing it was too late for her own salvation, but she wanted to save Lelandi.
In all of the stories up until now, the newly turned werewolves have come to embrace that side of themselves, or are already werewolves and happy to be so. So this is the first time to deal with a stubborn werewolf who refuses to shift! But that isn’t enough to base a story on, so with all my stories they must have: romance, adventure, mystery, and conflict. Now, about the time I was writing this when it was really cold last year, the World Health Organization was putting out the word that we could have a flu epidemic. And I got to thinking about that. How could it affect werewolves?
Wolf Fever was born.
One of the exciting things about having the upcoming release of a book is receiving notification that the cover art is done. It’s always fun to send photos of the area and season that the story takes place and see what the art department does with it. The resulting covers are always great! So when I received an email from the art director that they wished to get into contact with the photographers on some of the photos I sent of summer in Breckinridge, Colorado, the location for Dreaming of the Wolf, I was ecstatic! They are working on the cover for Book 8! It’s amazing how real it feels that the book really will be out when a cover is done.
So whether you’re just getting started on the series, or have read all the books, everyone could use a little wolf in their lives! And here’s your chance to comment and win a free copy of any of the books I have on hand.
Anyone ever see the movie, LadyHawke, about the heroine who is a hawk during the day, and the hero is a wolf by night?
Only in my stories, the wolf gets his mate—romance dictates having a happily-ever-after!
Thanks again, Doug, for having me! Wishing everyone a safe and fun-filled holiday!
