Spring Break on Location, Vampires! and an Author Spotting

Shew, reader-friends! The first day back to work after vacation is always the hardest.

Last week, the fam and I drove due south and spent six days rambling around Baldwin County, Ala., also known as the setting of The Dragonfly Series.

Since we lived there almost ten years, we've got many friends and favorite locations.

Dragonfly was the very first book I ever wrote, and since I was learning, I thought it would be easier to have all the action occur in a very familiar location.

Basically that means all of the major scenes in The Dragonfly Series happen in "real" places. Like this one...

Jesse's Restaurant on the Magnolia River

Jack and Anna's dinner date at Jesse's was doomed from the start, but I still like that scene and how it came together.

Do you have a favorite part in the series? Let me know what it is~

In the meantime, I'm back, digging out, and looking forward to writing more Mosaic very soon! I can't wait to share this final installment with y'all!

Now, what's this about vampires?

It's coming. April 19th...

The first book in the second season of Blood and Snow is entitled VAMPIRE LIES.

My good friend RaShelle Workman is releasing her super-popular vampire series a little differently this time. Instead of 12 smaller volumes and a bunch of short stories, there will be at least three full length novels.

You can pre-order Book 1 by clicking HERE.

In Season 2 there will still be plenty of Snow White and her true love, but the story will be told from Jasmine's point of view.

Here's this summary: 

Vampire Lies
by RaShelle Workman

Blood and Snow Season 2, 
Book 1 ~ 

YA Fractured Fairytale

Eyes like violet sapphires. 
Wings of smoldering fire. 
Consume your true love's blood. 
Become the Eternal Vampire. 

Once upon a time there lived a vampire with wings and the genie who loved her...

Born of the seven magics, Jasmine is different in every way, including the obnoxious wings on her back courtesy of the original Vampires. She wants to be normal, to be a regular teenaged girl.

When a gorgeous dark-haired boy named Laeddin shows up and promises to sneak her away from all her problems and hide her in the human world, she agrees. 

But an evil lurks in her nightmares, a man with red eyes. 

It doesn’t take long for Jasmine to realize that no matter how far she tries to run from who she is, he’s only a dream away. He wants her. He needs her. He acts as though he loves her. 

It’s becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between the path that’ll lead to her happily ever after, and the path that’ll lead to her destruction as well as all magic.

I like starting with real places. That helps me with the description, even if I don't actually use that real place in the end.

Beautiful vampire on that cover.
