For my time travel readers out there, I know you'll know who I'm talking about. As some of you know, I'm about 3/4 of the way through writing Simon McAllister's story - That would be book 4 in my time travel series. He's a tough one, I tell ya. Unlike the other three books, which really worked as a trilogy, this book has an entirely new 'bad guy' and a whole new set of characters that my readers will get to know. Don't worry, I can't leave the MacCoinnich's in the dust. I love 'em all too much for that.
However, Highland Shifter, the title of Simon's story, will be worth the wait. I want the next three books in this series to stand alone but connect enough so that those of you who love series romance will pine for the next book. Nothing tickles me more than to have readers send me an email, or comment on my blog, facebook, or twitter to let me know they look forward to more from these characters.
The challenge of this story for me is removing the image I once had of Simon... ie, the picture I added to the top of this blog, and growing him up to be a hero fit for a romance novel. Same thing with Amber, to the right - and Cian ie, picture at the bottom of the post. ~ They were kids in the last book. Now they're adults. They all have a story to tell.
There will be some surprises in this story, some familiar faces from the past and the present. Most of all, you'll be able to fall in love with every page.
