When the characters take over…

A few days ago, Sasha’s Spirit (Spectrum Security Inc. #2) went to my editor. At this point, I’m supposed to be getting into writing my next Club Aegis book—Soul Lost—which is the 8th book in a planned series of nine.


Sometimes, the characters take over. Sean and Nia, from Soul Lost, have gone into a bit of a sulk and won’t talk to me. I’m not entirely sure why, but Lucas—or as he prefers to be called, Brand—and Rachael have decided they’d quite like me to look at their story, for a while, at least.

Their story is currently provisionally entitled Rachael’s Brand. Lucas is a more mature hero—something of a silver fox—while Rachael is strong, stubborn woman who needs his help. There’s a bit of an age difference between them, but as we all know—age is just a number.

So that’s where I am—Brand and Rachael have settled into my head, and are currently debating how best to tell me their story. As for Sean and Nia—I think they’ll get their act together and relent before long.
