Heroes and Babies
For those of you that have seen my rebranding by the super talented Jay Aheer, I wanted to explain and answer a few questions!
Does that mean you are going to have babies in every book?
Probably not in the way most people think! Its not suddenly going to become about milk and diapers, night time feeds, or saving for college – its more a narrowing down of themes.
Let me explain…
You couldn’t get much different.
But the themes of heroes saving the world either for the younger generation or the younger generation being hands on are crucial.
For example – In my fantasy MPreg book The Alpha King, the baby is actually delivered by the very competent thirteen-year-old younger sister of the Alpha King.
In Five Minutes Longer the key to making the world a better place is by saving the enhanced kids, and there are quite a few talented teenagers involved. Obviously, all of the books are about the enhanced adults falling in love while battling prejudice and the odd serial killer…but you get the idea.
I’ve even thought about writing a young adult in the series.
And not in the way most people think. In my series Sirius Wolves the first ever human to become a pack Alpha wasn’t even a wolf. He was a bilateral amputee and he definitely didn’t need physical perfection to save the day or the pack, he just needed a big heart. Amputees feature in my books frequently because of my dad. He served in the Royal Navy and was an amputee, and growing up he was my biggest hero.
But heroes come in all shapes and sizes. The next “team” enhanced book is called The Strength of His Heart. This is a direct quote from the Disney movie Hercules. “A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.”
And for those of you that have read the series I think this sums up Vance perfectly.
Sometimes, okay probably more often than not to be honest. The next enhanced book to be released is called Guarding His Melody – and yes with a bodyguard who brandishes a very large gun. (!) But the real hero is Sebastian who has been deaf since he was six years old. His battle for independence is every bit as fierce as any war.
Future Plans and a Giveaway! 😊
Guarding his Melody (enhanced) is to be released September 25th
The Strength of His Heart (enhanced) is to be released in December
Matt’s Rainbow (Rainbow Key) somewhere in between I hope.
In Safe Hands – book one of my new series containing – yes you guessed it, heroes and babies will be out early next year. In Safe Hands is the story of an ex-military bilateral amputee who has to be a bodyguard to an actor who is being stalked, threatening not only himself but his seven month orphaned niece.
I have a special give-a-way this month. An audible code for a copy of Beneath This Mask the third book in the enhanced series featuring Gael and Jake, and a very special enhanced child, or any ebook from my backlist. Leave a comment to be entered!
