Welcome! A huge thank you to fabulously talented author, Alisha Paige, for including me in the Writing Process Blog Tour. This little romp through cyberspace is a great way for authors to share more about how their books get written. So cozy in and enjoy my contribution to the tour!
My four questions...
What am I working on?
Right now I’m about halfway through Vow of the Highlander (The MacLomain Series- Next Generation: Book Two). In this tale we follow Bradon MacLomain (youngest son to Iain and Arianna MacLomain from Fate’s Monolith ). He’s on a quest to bring home his sister, Torra, who is being avidly pursued by not only the evil Keir Hamilton but Colin MacLeod.
Keep your eyes peeled this week for the release of Mark of the Highlander (The MacLomain Series- Next Generation: Book One)! Here's a little something about the story...
Up and coming romance novelist sensation, McKayla never could have imagined that the medieval Scottish Highlands she wrote about were anything more than pure historical fiction. But little did she know that her Broun ancestry would prove an irresistible pull for one very remarkable highlander.
Colin MacLomain, skilled assassin and fierce warrior, is ready to make right his jaded past. Newly seated as chieftain, he’s determined to win over his clan and one true love. But when she’s pulled back in time will McKayla, his unknowing best friend, be able to see past his shaded history to the man he’s determined to become?
How Does My Work Differ from Others of its Genre?
Focusing on the MacLomain Series, I think what makes my work a bit different than others in the fantasy romance genre is the underlying struggle between Christianity and Paganism.
Why Do I Write What I Do?
Honestly? Because I love it! Both paranormal and fantasy romance have always appealed to me. Add in medieval Scottish Highlanders and it’s hard not to immerse myself completely. New stories keep forming and I can’t help but share!
How Does Your Writing Process Work?
I write books in series so my writing process typically begins by going over previous books to make sure I know exactly what direction I want to head in with future work. As a general rule, I like to give my readers a little something new in regards to medieval Scottish history so spend time researching. After that, I dive right in! Every day before I start writing I review what I wrote the day before. It’s a great way to get back into the zone. :-)
