My Book – Fun Facts Round #2

“Winter’s Rite” – – was first planned with a different title and to be set in the modern day Gulf ofMexico, pitting merfolk against humans.

“Well Wishes” – – was originally my second self-published novel.

“Gauntlet” – – was inspired by a scene from the film “Batman Forever”.

“Predators or Prey?” – – was the first Wendy Markland novel and not originally meant as Book 1 of a series.

“Necromancer” – – was the second Wendy Markland novel.

“Vindicated” –– was challenging due to my need to create vampires different from those seen in the series’ first book.

The bonus story “Remnants”, included in the print edition of “Predators or Prey?” – – is Wendy Markland’s first encounter with a ghost.

The “Shadow Castes” trilogy, which begins with “Shadow Castes: Book 1 – Aspects” – – began as ideas for two separate books.

“Quintana Roo,Yucatan” – Forthcoming – is one of my rare non-paranormal projects.

Second Sentence Shares

Authors sometimes use the first sentence of a book in promos. For one of my books, the first sentence may well affect the read for the previous book for anyone who hasn’t yet read it. So, I’m going to use the second sentence of each of my books for promos.

Second sentence share: “Winter’s Rite” – – Avari pushed himself upward, breaking the surface of the water with his head and shoulders.

Second sentence share: “Well Wishes” – – Her voice, rhythmic and harmonious, typical of the Elven race, was heavily laced with anxiety.

Second sentence share: “Gauntlet” – – He squinted in the near darkness, checking that he had the Slim-Jim in the proper place.

Second sentence share: “Predators or Prey?” – – Revealed in the wake of the knitted material were white arm hairs and brown age spots.

Second sentence share: “Necromancer” – – The contemplation rolled through Wendy Markland’s mind for the millionth time that day.

Second sentence share: “Vindicated” – – Ahead of her, the sun-bleached blacktop shimmered in the baking sun, the mirage giving the impression that the gray asphalt has been flooded with water.

Second sentence share: “Shadow Castes: Book 1 – Aspects” – noise assaults his ears as the strident sounds of the too-loud music pummel the roof beneath him, shaking the entire building in rhythm with the pulsing beat

Second sentence share: “Quintana Roo, Yucatan” – Forthcoming – Clearing the last micro droplets of sweat away, her vision returned to normal and the green blur she had been seeing sharpened into layers upon layers of leaves, fronds, vines and ferns once again.
