I looked at the blog and saw that it’s been a month since I posted. Wow, time flies! What have I been doing these past thirty days, I’ll assume you asked? Lots of things.
From April 1st to 14th, I was feverishly working on my novella for THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS anthology. Longtime blog readers may remember that the first half of a novel is the hardest for me to write. This novella is close to the length of half a book, so it felt like pushing uphill the whole way. Despite this, I’m pleased to say that I heard from my editor yesterday and she really liked the story, so revisions will be of the lighter, clarify-this, expand-on-that variety. Cue me wiping my brow with a “whew!” sigh of relief. What’s this story about, I’ll again assume you asked? :). It’s a Cat and Bones tale called Home for the Holidays, where long buried secrets of Bones’s past resurface to take a bite out of their holiday cheer. I’ve mentioned in other places that a member of the Night Huntress crew has known some bombshell things about Bones’s history that even he wasn’t aware of. In Home for the Holidays, I finally get to reveal who that person is and share those secrets with readers, which I’ve been itching to do.
Then, on April 15th, I did something I’ve wanted to do for over a decade – moved out of South Florida. Don’t get me wrong, if you like the sun and heat, that is the place to be. I burn easily and get migraines in high temperatures, though, so from April through November (yes, heat indexes in April already topped the 90’s on a regular basis), I stayed indoors most of the time. That’s not fun, even for an introvert like me. I am now in the North Carolina mountains and I love, love, love it. I’ve been outside almost every day since I moved and it’s been wonderful. Even my dog seems to love it. She wants to go on long walks with every potty, whereas before, she’d run outside, pee, and then dash back into the air-conditioned environment, lol.
As with all things, though, there have been some drawbacks. At some point between our closing on the house and arriving there two weeks later, a valve on our water heater had burst and flooded the downstairs. Good thing I’d already decided I hated the carpet, because the sodden mess had to be pulled up. Then the movers had taken all my paperwork out of my various desks and piled it into one big box, forcing me to do something I hadn’t done in years – organize *cue screams of horror*. That took a scary amount of time, but now I’ve weeded through all of it and only saved the things I really needed. After doing that, I was bitten by the Organize bug and went through all my clothes, pulling out things that I had kept under the myth premise of “If I lose ten/fifteen/twenty pounds, this will look great on me!” Ahem. Goodwill, you are about to get a lot of clothes, many of them never worn.
Aside from that, we’ve had little blips. Took over a week for the cable to work properly, and it was a tennis match between Charter saying it was TiVo’s fault while TiVo lobbed the blame on Charter. The house needed blinds everywhere since it was a second home for the former owners and they must not have been here enough to worry about privacy. We also had security installed, the gas checked (the fireplace smelled, well, gassy to me), the furnace cleaned out, and the list goes on. Every day, a new company or repair person has been by to check or work on one thing or the other.
In the midst of that, I went through galley pages for ONE GRAVE AT A TIME and made a lot of changes and corrections. Every time, I think I’ve been so thorough at the copyedit stage, yet once the story is formatted and laid out in book form, I find so many glaring errors. It’s extra frustrating to know that the Arc’s will not have any of these corrections. Yes, every Arc is marked with a big note about how it’s not a finished copy and errors are likely, but one day, I dream of having a clean, error-free Arc! (Dream on, everyone in publishing just muttered). I don’t have Arcs yet, but when I do, I’ll hold my usual contests. Reviewers and bloggers interested in receiving one will need to contact Avon’s publicity department. I only get a couple for contests and have no control over which sites get sent an Arc for reviewing purposes, sorry.
Because of moving and deadlines, I wasn’t about to attend the Romantic Times convention in Los Angeles, but I heard that it was loads of fun as usual. I was also very happy to hear that ETERNAL KISS OF DARKNESS took the award for Best Vampire Romance. Big smooches to the RT reviewers for that, though they’ll have to wait until next year in Chicago to get those smooches in person.
A few people have asked if I could post deleted scenes from ETERNAL KISS OF DARKNESS. Sorry to say, but there really weren’t any. As for THIS SIDE OF THE GRAVE, there’s one small scene snippet featuring Vlad in a cowboy outfit that I’ll have to dig out, but give me a little time. I’ll be sure to let everyone know once it’s up.
And finally, I spoke to my editor firming up the plot summary for Vlad’s book and discussing my wish list for the cover. My editor and I are in agreement that we’d like to see just Vlad on the cover, with him and Leila on the stepback (kind of a reverse of the Cat and Bones covers). Now, I need to brainstorm a title for the book. It won’t have “grave” in it to denote that it’s NOT a C&B book, but I don’t know if I want a recurring word in his titles or not. Do you like it when a series has a recurring word in the title, or does that make you crazy? Also, if anyone wants to share their idea for a title for Vlad’s book, please do. If my editor gives your suggestion a thumb’s up, I’ll be sure to mention you in the acknowledgments, if you’d like.
That’s it for now. The rest of this week/weekend, I have some contest prizes to address and mail out, then on Monday, I start writing Vlad and Leila’s story. Onward!
I prefer when the same name is in the titles, as it helps me easily tell if it’s part of that series or not.
I too prefer same name in titles it’s unique to You J.F. so why change a winner?
Some names I think are interesting to work with for Vlad series…
Magestic Flame, Prince of Hearts, Forever Knight, Lord of Justice, Royal Dragon, Blue blooded Desire
oh I could go on and on here 🙂
woke up in a wee frenzy as I dreamed of Vlads books ha ha, must be so little sleep that’s doing it but some more for FUN, ENJOY 🙂
As Vlad is the Master of hilarious expressions and puns on everything these came to me
To be or not to be…
It’s a hard knock life…
Don’t fear the Reaper…
The hunger Cuts Me (infamous Romanian saying)
The Mrs says
Phew! I’m tired just reading about everything you had going on.
I like having a reoccuring word or theme in a book’s title. With Vlad, I think it would be cool if that word or theme revolved around Vlad’s bad pyro self – Up in Flames, Burning Desire, Smokin’ Hot Romanian 😛 , something like that.
Can’t wait to read all that you have in store for Cat, Bones and Vlad.
Sharon S. says
oh, Snap! Welcome to NC! I live in the Triad area (lived in NC my whole life). My brother is up in Asheville (you must go to The Grove Park Inn!!!)
The cool thing about you living in my state? I will be able to go to your book signings!!!! Yeah!
Crystal aka Bones Lover says
I really appreciate when a series has one word or theme in their titles, but maybe its just me. It denotes cohesiveness and also looks pretty awesome all together on one’s book shelf! I don’t really have a great title suggestion for Vlad (so excited btw!!) but a great theme would be something fire related since..well you know why 🙂 whatever you choose will be awesome as always, congrats on your move!
Loved the “Ketchup” blog! Hmmm, a Vlad book title…hehe, I always remember how Cat said he smelled like cinnamon…or warm…and I think “Burnt” could be used a pun to some degree! Muse On!
I like the recurring word in the titles also :)!
I like books with recurring titles, it makes it easier for me to remember the whole series.
best titles for Vlad I can think of…
Burned in Blood
An Immortal Flame
Dracula’s Inferno (okay, that one is kind of a joke. :D)
And that is all… Oh wait! Sparky Gets a Stiffy, it’ll sell millions. 😀
P.S. Please don’t send Vlad to kill me for that last title.
I like An Immortal Flame, that’s a good one.
Congrats Jeaninene on the new digs. How about Kiss of Flames for Vlad’s title? I can’t wait to see the cover for Vlad’s book!
Debi Murray says
Congrats on the move. I know you have wanted to do this for a long time. I’m glad Gypsy is enjoying herself, too.
I agree that there should be an identifying word keyed to the main character would be great. Like flames or burning for old hot hands himself, Vlad. FLAMES OF DESIRE or BURNING HEART, although those may be too “romancy” for him.
Amy T says
Congrats on the move! I think the recurring word title is a good idea also. As for a title I nominate “Sparky Gets A Stiffy” (just kidding). I laughed so hard on that one.:D
It may sound a lil corny but maybe u could call the book A night with Vlad I dunno just a suggestion LOVE THE BOOKS THOUGH
Jackie B. says
Welcome to the Carolinas!
Personally, I like when a series has a recurring word in the title. I agree with Jen. It helps me easily know it’s part of a series.
BTW, I’m super excited about new C&B stories and a Vlad series. But I also hope you’ve got some plans for more werewolf stories. I really liked the short story you had in one of the Mammoth Book Of anthologies a while back.
Emily (UrbanFantasyReads.com) says
I guess I’ll be the dissenter on the recurring title thing. I like different titles, even for books in the same series. It gets cheesy for me sometimes to keep using the same word in different ways. Plus, I think totally new titles could possible denote more of what the new book is about, too.
By the way, I can’t wait to read this new series!!! I love the Vlad character and always want to know more when he appears.
Well I know exactly what you mean about the weather, I live in constant summer and I’m sick of it most of the times. You are just lucky you have a portable work!!!!
I will agree with everyone else here about the recurring word in the book title, it’s easier to remember the series.
Now about Vlad’s book title you all are refering in Vlad’s ability to manipulate fire but that’s not the only think that describes him…..He is the first well known vamp, the most terrifying of them all, with the most horiffic reputation, he is from Europe (the Old Country). All these thinks define him also very stronly so keep them in mind before you deside.
Viki S. says
Wow have you been busy. I am very glad to hear that you’re happy with your move. The mountains are beautiful.
I am so looking forward to THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and everything else too :). Thank you.
Dana McEntee says
Congrats on the big move! It sure sounds like you made the right decision!
I personally love something reoccuring in the titles. It groups them well together.
As for Vlad’s books I – why not instead of a word, use a letter, like V? Like Victorious dead? Venomous delights? You get the drift. 🙂
I like recurring name then I can keep the series straight!! lol just want to say I love the Cat & Bones stories… I actually read the story in Death’s Excellent Vacation 1st… & I asked my cousin if she read any of your books, she said yes your were her favorite author! so I ordered all the books last month… I read them so fast I just couldn’t put them down!! so now I’m reading them a 2nd time a little slower this time!! can’t wait to read about Vlad! I love him too! thanks for writing these great books!
Yay! Thrilled for a Vlad update! And congrats on the new pad, too!
Love the reoccurring title for series books. Love that Vlad is a series book! I know it will be fantastic!!! Too many exclamations? I have to agree with the others, something to do with Vlad’s pyro gift. Fire is my first choice, but anything you come up with will be great!
Yeah I like the same titles names it helps tie the books together in a way that I love.Here are book names THAT I thought of.A LONE FLAME IN THE NIGHT. THE FLAME IN THE DARKNESS.THE BURNING OF NIGHT.THE FLAMES THAT BURN IN THE NIGHT.BURNING OF THE HOTESS FLAMES.and my fav THE FIRE THAT BURNS IN THE NIGHT.Hope you like it.
I have got to go with the linked titles, since I do love me a theme going on. As long as it isn’t the word Dark or Darkness, since I think every author has a series with those and I can’t keep them straight anymore.
Congrats on the move to the Carolina’s. I moved from Connecticut over 10 yrs ago and love it here.
As for using the same word in the title…I don’t really have a preference. Either way is fine with me.
Hmmm…book titles…I was thinking a play on Vlad’s name…like TEPES RISING or VLAD RISING. Or how about a play on Shakespeare phrases, like FOR EVER AND A FLAME…MUCH ADO ABOUT TEPES…
I liked another title that was already posted, UP IN FLAMES…
Good luck with the title names.
Also, I wanted to say Thank You to you for sharing your stories with us, your Readers. Your stories help take me out of my very ordinary, sometimes stressful, everyday life and let me escape into something different and fun. It is a nice escape and I just wanted to say THANK YOU.
Keep up the great work. We love it! 🙂
OMG I can’t wait to read THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!! Long buried secrets of Bones’s past?!?! Some bombshell things about Bones’s history that even he wasn’t aware of?!?! I need to know now!
Thank you Jeaniene for writing these books and knowing how to tease us!!! 😀
I like the recurring word theme as well. The only time it really bothers me, is when it’s decided on as a theme after the second book has been published without it, so you have like every single one in the series with that word but not the one. I have a couple series like that on my shelves and I can’t help but see that inconsistency every time I look at them, lol.
I am actually really happy that Ilona Andrew’s next book is called Magic Slays, because right now the first, second, and fourth all say Magic, then a verb starting with B, (Magic Bites, Magic Burns, Magic Bleeds), but the third one is Magic Strikes. Its such a minor thing to notice, but I can’t help but be glad that it won’t be all Magic B____ except for the one! Now there will be two that don’t have a verb with a B!
But anyway, that’s also an example with a recurring word theme that I like, because it does create a sense of unity, you can readily understand they are all connected.
I like that the non-series books sort of already have a ‘theme’ to their titles. Four words, something something of something. First Drop of Crimson, Eternal Kiss of Darkness. How about for Vlad, “Immortal Flame of Desire”?
Maybe not ‘quite’ there, but something along those lines? Love the series, love the spin-offs, love the anthologies, love it all! 🙂
Hi i have been waiting for your post impationtly
Congrats on the move , i completely understand your need to run away from the heat . i love in a country that has two seasons only and summer is the longest one .
have i told you that i live in the Arabian Gulf well i guess not but i am happy to tell you that you have a big fan base here in my country and they are all hoping that one day you can come to visit ah one more thing have you ever thought about translating your books into Arabic many of my friends who can’t read English are asking if there is atranslated virsion , they are very excited to read them after i told them about C&B books.
well thank you for your hard work
hi its me again . i forgot to write my suggested titles
i so go with the flames theme
( Taming the Flames )
( Undying Flames )
( Fangs and Fire )
thoes are my top three
So first off thank you for everything you write (vamps/demons/wolves etc) and for continuing to write. As soon as both books C&B 6 and the Xmas antho were listed I had them preordered…and am in anxious anticipation for Vlad’s books as well.
Personally I’m not terribly picky when it comes to book titles but I do like the fact that there are recurring words in the titles of some series like yours another example would be Ward’s BDB series with Lover in the titles.
The only title I can think of for you to go with the theme for Vlad’s pyrokinesis would be: Enflamed Darkness.
My only other suggestion would be to leach a title out of Vlad’s purported “biography” Dracula — examples
Dracula: Do you believe in destiny? That even the powers of time can be altered for a single purpose? That the luckiest man who walks on this earth is the one who finds… true love?
Dracula: I have crossed oceans of time to find you
etc etc etc 😀
It would be so cool if there was a cat Helsing mmet Vlad scene! And i am hoping (vain) that Draculas 3 brides will show up… There could be a lot of jokers with them.
Maby you could use these titles:
Count of Flames – This and the one below got a name pun… Dracula was a count in the good ol’ days:-)
Count on flames
Burning desires (to corny..?)
The Dead Un-Dead was Stokers originaly title for Dracula… Maybe something like that?
Dracul means The devil or dragon, so maybe something with that?
Sandy Sagitto says
High five, Jeaniene on the continued success! You are indeed at the top of my list of fave writers! I can’t enough of Cat and Bones, and your writing prowess continues to wow me every book!
On the subject of Vlad, I’m a bit torn on the recurring theme in the book titles, although I’ll admit I love the Grave theme for Cat and Bones. I have to agree with Marina’s post though….one must consider Vlad’s status as a vamp, his age, and his talents/abilities extend beyond manipulating fire (and gee, maybe he has other abilities you have yet to share with your readers!). It’s like Vlad is to vamp society like the Queen to England – “royalty” for lack of a better term.
Anyway, just food for thought! I’m sure the title, artwork, etc. will be outstanding as always! Keep up the great work!
Gloria Esau says
Vlad definitely has to have FLAME in his titles!!
I do love the recurrung title for series books. It helps us to instantly associate titles with the characters involved. It was great hearing from you Jeaniene. Good luck in your new house. Aren’t you closer to Cat and Bones’ house in Va. now?
Amanda Wilcoxen-Morgan says
Flames of Tepes
A Deal of Spikes
I love the mountains of North Carolina, Jeaniene; enjoy!
Can’t wait for Vlad’s books. He’s quite a character.
My title suggestions? Smartass – The Legend Continues; Let Me Impale You. Just kidding, but in a series I do like using the same word in each title that essentially identifies that series.
i quite like a running theme with book titles makes them say ‘look at me iam a series lots of lovley reading hours!!’
as for titles for Vlad’s book (btw wooot woot)
*light my fire
*burn for me (buffy referance ep lie to me)
*prince of flames
*fire in motion or motion in fire (defenition of pyrokinesis)
*the harsh light of day (play on vampire myth about being in the sun)
*conversations with dead people
*bound by flames
*fire in the blood
thats its hope these help or at least rule out thing 😉
It ma sound cheesy but” Tempted by the Dark” sounds good
I am sorry you moved out of South Fl. I live in Miami. Glad you love your new digs though.
I have to agree with most of the others, I like recurring titles.
Its a bit hard to come up with a name of a book if you dont know the intimaticies of the story…but..how about these \(^_^)/
Drac’s Just Dessert
Sometimes recurring words in titles just confuse me. They are often similar and so I will forget which ones go in what order. With the Grave ones it’s not so bad because it’s mostly from one side of the grave to the other 😀
Example: Black Dagger Brotherhood- I have no idea which title goes with which story or in what order they go. :S
I really like it when a word recurs in a series, especially if an author has more than one series!
Thought about “Flaming Prince of Darkness”, but I guess that gives the wrong connotation!
How about “”The Real Vlad – Burning Prince of Darkness”
I think the book should be called ‘Vlademire’s Quest’. Some people think i have a poor choice of titles but i hope you don’t think the same.
Shiloh Walker says
Oh, North Carolina… lucky!
One day, I’d like to move to the mountains, but I suspect we’ll wait until the kids are grown and settled.
Re: Vlad…yay! Oh, man-want that book! On the title, I think the recurring word is a good way to tie a series together, if you can do it like it was with C&B.
By the way, I was talking with Diana Pharoah Francis and Yasmine Galenorn on twitter, and we saw some boots on Amazon-I saw them and thought CAT, right away.
Thanks for updates! I like the ‘theme’ in titles and I love your stories.
For Vlad’s book:
Blood and Thunder
Blood Is Thicker Than Fire
Through Fire and Blood
and just for fun: Bloody Hot Love
WOW well you have been busy. Congratz on your move.
I like the idea of having a reaccuring word or theme in the titles, but it depends on what its about coz sometimes it can get a bit confusing to keep them in order.
Here are some ideas for titles: A burst of Heat. Icy flame. Forever Burning. Sparks Fly. Blade of Fire. Killer Flame. Burning Naked. Smoke and Fire. Twisted flames. Burn for Eternity. Wicked Heat. Save my Flame.
Cant wait to hear what the title will be. (bet everyone will end up smacking their forheads thinking “Now why didnt i think of that?”)
I like having the same word in each title of a saga. Sound like all books are united, that’s very cool.
For Vlad, I don’t mind having the same word. As he can control fire, why not put this word in the title?
Also a fan of recurring titles, if for no other reason than that they help me identify a series! As for titles…hmmm…I agree it would be great to give a nod towards Vlad’s fire gift but it’s hard to pluck something out of thin air when we don’t know what the story/ies will entail. Regardless how about something like:
The Fire Within
A veil of Flames
Apologies if these have already been mentioned, I didn’t have time to read through the tonnes of replies!
As for a recurring word in a title, it doesn’t matter to me. I can see how it can be a bit challenging to stick to the theme so if you go this route choose an easy word. The only drawback for me as a reader is remembering the order of the books, because after a while all the titles look the same, but the book covers help me with the order. Book 1 is known to me as “thigh high boots Cat” and book two is “motorcycle Cat”. Book six will be “new model Cat.” Looking at the publishing date helps me too. I’m just not good with titles, although the BDB series seems easy to remember. Go figure! LOL
The only title for Vlad’s book that came to mind is “Vamp on Fire” or “Man on Pyre.” (I must have Denzel Washington on my mind.) But maybe it looks too silly. Maybe his series can just have a fire theme, using words like blaze, inferno, or kindle.
Anyway, good luck with the new home and relocation! Looking forward to the Christmas story and upcoming books. ;o)
Congratulations on the move! I lived in the NC mountains for four years while in college; I grew up in the Triad area (Greensboro), and now live in the eastern part of the state. I love NC 🙂 But I love the mountains the most.
I’ll also be one of the few dissenting voices on similarly themed titles. I have an e-reader and if the names of the books all sound alike, I have a hard time remember their order or which book it was that I really wanted to re-read then. Plus I think it can sometimes eventually back authors into a corner; after so many titles, there aren’t many options left.
Really looking forward to reading everything you have coming up!
I think a name for Vlad’s book could be something like “Darkness Eternal Kiss” or “Kiss of Eternal Darkness”.
Cool title but it’s probably too close to Kira and Mencheres’ story, which is titled “Eternal Kiss of Darkness.”
I LOVE it when a series has a recuring word in the title! It gives the series a sense of unity and ownership on that certain word. Like whenever I hear or see the word “grave” I INSTANTLY thinko of your C&B books! ^_^
I used to live in North Carolina. I LOVED it up there too! It’s gorgeous and the whether and my perfct climate as well! I’m glad all went well with the movig proceed, even if everything was not so well once you got there. At least you’re being a good sport about it (or so it seems ^_^). Once you get through all this your house will be even more enjoyable for all the work you put into it. Hmhm! ^_^
Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! I compiled a list and sent them to my editor. Will let you know if one of them makes it for the final title! 🙂
Welcome to North Carolina. I love living here and hope you injoy it as much as I do. As far as the title to Vald’s book I like:
To Hot to Handle
A Touch of Heat
The Burning Touch of Desire.
I hope it will not take to long for the Vald story to hit the shelfs. He is one of my favorite Characters.
I really love the C&B books and all the off stories. I have to agree with Acheronlover, “Wicked Heat” sounds like a great way to explain Vlad. He is my favorite character and I have been eagerly awaiting a book about him. Congrats on your move!!
I think a good title for Vlad’s book would be “If Unburned” I think it captures Vlads past and hopeful future in two words.
hey jeanine,I just started reading your book and it is awsome!the night huntress series and I will be moving onto the 2nd book soon:-)I usualy not a book reader because it hard for me to find one that keeps my attention but yours do.I like the fact its got the supernatural twist to it cause i also like twilight!and the fact your books are bout a young woman in her 20s is a plus:-)thanks again for writing these cool books:-)
Hi Jeaniene! This is my first posting and wanted to start out by saying how much I love your books. My sister actually suggested the series to me and once I read the first book, I flew through the rest and was able to catch up by the time “This Side of the Grave” was released. I also love that you have such a broad collection of items and prints on printfection.com. I wish more authors would offer book memorabilia for their fans. My sister bought me the “If I Die” tote bag for my birthday yesterday :). And since I am a future med student the fact that part of the money goes to Doctors without Borders is an added bonus and only makes me a greater fan.
I am so excited that you made the move to North Carolina! I’ve lived there all my life and the weather really is one of the best things about the region. And the Blue Ridge/Appalachains are, as you already know, gorgeous. I hope this means you will have more book signings in this area now 🙂
My suggestions for Vlad’s book are “Up in Flames” or “Fire My Desire”
Can’t wait for the next books!
Sarah Barr says
Great books recommend them to everyone!!!
How about Into the Fire for Vlads’ book.
I think a good name for Vlad’s book would be “Feel the fire” I love your books and I can’t wait for”One grave at the time”.
LOVE your books! I was hooked SO fast! I agree with the other title suggestions…”Fire” should be in the title. Also I really like the recurring word in the title. Thanks for all your hard work!
Michelle B. says
Your books are fantastic and I can’t wait for the next one!
Some suggestions for Vlad’s book, “Passions Ablaze”, “Compassion Ablaze” or “Hearts Ignited”.
I love me some Cat & Bones, best series so far, im so excited Vlad is finally getting some much needed attention…oooohhh can’t wait.
I really thought there might have been something between Vlad and cat’s mum, but never mind maybe that will be Ian aye? (hint,hint)
How about Vladhelsing for a title, ties in with his movie humor, and still has a Cat & Bones feel to it.
LOVE your series Jeaniene.
Your books are the best I love them. There the only worn out books I have because I’ve read them so many times.
Can’t wait for Vlad’s book!! I thought of some names:
‘Eternal Flame of love’
‘Fire of my Heart’
‘Beyond the Burns of Passion’
‘Tempt the Flames of Mercy’
‘Dark side of Fire’
I know I got too excited but I hope they help 🙂
Carrie T says
I like and dislike the reoccuring word in titles. For one it’s easy to know what series the book belongs in BUT sometimes I personally cant ever keep them straight..lol.(unless I look at the covers). For Vlad’s title how about: DARKNESS AWAKENED, TAKEN BY FIRE, HEATED SURRENDER. I keep wanting to use works like eternal, kiss, and crimson but those are in Spade and Menchereses titles. May post more if I come up with any that moves me.
<3 your books ……
Which is why I wanted to suggest – Under Fire – as the book title.:D
Hope that helps
<3 your books ……
Which is why I wanted to suggest – Under Fire – as the book title.:D
Hope that helps
I was reading your forum for a long time now and just thought I might wanna get an profile here and comment once in a while.
everytime I read your books I can’t stop. so, yes I’m an addict. gosh, I’m so happy that I attended my english lessons, otherwise I would have needed to wait until the translated versions would be on the market. and let me tell you that bones british english slang is totally lost on them. anyway, just wanted to tell you how excited I am about all the new books coming! I was looking forward for Vlad. A recurring word in the title can be ok if the story fits as it was by c&b. By Vlad words come to mind like hot,heat, burning and fire. maybe a variation of them would do? for example: hotshot, heated atmosphere, burning desire/heart/man, fire hazard and so on… I find the suggestions further up very fetching: Fire Unleashed, TAKEN BY FIRE and HEATED SURRENDER
by the way thx for all the excerpts!they keep me going while waiting an rereading!
just one question: did I get it right that there will be a book about Ian? Because I really would like to know who are the other 2 people he cares about (mentioned in spades story).
greetings from germany (Husum an der Nordsee)
hi love ur books can’t wait to see read Vlad’s story i think as for title for this book something to with fire or touching cause of Vlad power n Leila’s power so i guess something like “The Burning Touch” kinda corny i know but i’m guessing that most of the story will be about Leila learning to except her power so i think something along that line of thought would be good for the book title again can’t wait till the book comes out!!!
