Welcome to My Writing Process Blog Tour, and I would like to thank medieval award-winning author, Laurel O’Donnell for inviting me to be a part of it. Please stop by her site for medieval as well as paranormal action-packed books.
Now, for my big news, Judging Judas – Book 3 in my Tarnished Saints Series is now available! Judas is the sheriff of my fictional small town of Sweet Water, Michigan. This differs from a lot of series by the fact it is about twelve sons of a preacher who are far from saints. Matter of fact, they are nothing but trouble!
This is my 30th published book, and I’d like to thank you all for your support. In celebration, and for the first time ever, I am offering Doubting Thomas,Book1 of the series FREE from May 6-10th only. And be sure to pick up Luring Levi – Book 2, as well, followed by Judging Judas.
To talk about my writing process, my idea was to have 12 brothers – each named after an apostle. Their domineering preacher father wanted them to carry on in his footsteps, but as you’ll see, the Taylor boys didn’t have the same plans. <Grin> This series is about romance, redemption and finding the will to carry on no matter what hand life deals you. And since I don’t like books to get too dark, I’ve managed to bring a little humor into the stories to keep them balanced.
My tarnished saints are just that – men who have been raised with rules and morals but also lost most of them along the way, becoming a little tarnished. They deal with real-life problems and issues that we all go through, and are forced to make decisions for a better future because of their mistakes of the past. There is a lot of inner turmoil that makes them search the depths of their souls to find forgiveness as well as to change. For example, Levi has gone to prison for tax evasion, turned in by his own brother, Judas. Ok, so I’m having fun with this idea, but beware, these are steamy romances and not G rated.
My idea for Thunder Lake and the little town of Sweet Water came from my own experiences of growing up and visiting my grandparents who lived on a lake in Michigan and were five miles from the nearest, small town. And though my Taylor boys have all gone their separate ways after the death of their parents, an inheritance left to them in their father’s will is bringing them all home to be reunited once again. (I feel a TV mini-series in the makings here.)
And as for the process of how I write – I do not plan everything out ahead of time because these Taylor boys end up doing whatever they want and changing it anyway. I admit, I’m having a hard time controlling them. But with 12 brothers and their personal stories in the making, I’ve decided to finally start writing down info to help me keep things straight by the time I get to the last book and also keep me sane.
So please pick up a copy of Doubting Thomas today, and I hope you will continue with the stories of his brothers, Levi and Judas. And keep watching my website, as Seducing Zeb will be released this summer. I hope to have a different brother’s story released every few months.
