What kind of writer am I?
Hmm. Good question. I’d like to say I’m the meticulously planning type like I am in every other aspect of my life. I’m very controlling and organized. I like things done a certain way—mine—and in a timely manner—as soon as I ask you to do it, thank you—or else I get pissed.
But, ironically enough, with writing I am the opposite. I often plan a book by sitting down and writing. Yup, that’s it. If I need to know a certain detail—such as how to slit throats properly—then I do research on it. But I don’t do outlines. Don’t plot what will happen step-by-step. I don’t even really plot.
Okay, okay…sometimes, I get a scene in my head, and I know it will be in the book at some point. I usually have that happen at least once in a book. I currently have a book in my head, and I have one scene I must get into it, but I know nothing else about it. I only know: they will be in the woods and she will save him. And he’s not used to being saved, by anyone.
I digress though. Where was I? Oh, right.
The majority of the time, though, I let my characters decide. Once I touch the keyboard, my fingers just seem to know what to say. I, more often than not, am just as surprised by what my characters say and do as my readers are.
And that makes it so much more fun. Who wants to know everything that is going to happen right then and there?
Unless, of course, I told you to unload the dishwasher. At which point, you better get on it.
Kill Me Tomorrow is a paranormal romance book, in Decadent Publishing’s fabulous 1Night Stand series. The series revolves around the enigmatic Madame Eve who always seems to be able to find the perfect match for that special someone.
Jasmine Baruch is a jinn-a supernatural being who fights demons with fire. While that’s difficult enough, she’s got bigger problems. She’s a virgin, and in the jinn culture, that is sheer blasphemy. Jinn are supposed to be passionate, promiscuous creatures-everything she isn’t. Due to marry the next day, she takes matters into her own hands by using 1NS. But, like the rest of her life, nothing is easy. The man chosen for her, though incredibly gorgeous, is a demi-sanguine; a half-human, half-demon-her enemy.
Gavin Werbato is looking for an easy night of sex. Nothing more, nothing less. Instead, he gets a gorgeous jinn convinced it is her duty to kill him. He can certainly think of better things to do with her soft hands than murder. He need only convince her of that…
Can the fire sparked when these beings collide be controlled, or will it consume their world as they know it?
