I just finished editing my first novel, Summer Blood, and I’m discovering that the characters are not finished with me! I can’t stop thinking about them. When I drive to work in the morning, they start having conversations and doing things… I think that means I need a sequel… hmm.
It is an odd sensation. I thought I would be starting a new project by now, but I can’t let these guys go yet. Their story isn’t finished.
Summer Blood is about two wicked and powerful vampires that find love and their humanity when they kidnap a strangely attractive human – until their makers step in and change everything!
Gwinafel O’Dale is a sexy, flirty, and very tough vampire. She kicks ass or kisses it on her own whim. She meets Tobia. He’s the broody dark one that hates himself. Their relationship causes them to grow up a bit. She finds she can make a commitment past a few hours and he learns he doesn’t have to cast a gloomy shadow over everything in his life. Then they meet Matthew.
Matthew is an enigma. Gwinafel is drawn to him in a supernatural way…
That’s all I get to tell you!! I hate spoilers! But, I hope you’ll be interested in finding out more about these characters from the Desolate Incubus series. Summer Blood will be the 2nd installment. I’m going to release Blood Pact, The Desolate Incubus Histories first.
I had to cut a lot of juicy material out of Summer Blood, and it will end up in Blood Pact. Yes, I do mean juicy!
So, I’m excited about these characters! I hope others will be too… and I hope I can write enough about them so they’ll get out of my head.

Another great post.
Be happy! If the characters you created are hijacking you brain it means that you made then well, and that they actually do have a life!! That´s great for your writing. As you already know for sure, you have to be in love with your story and your characters to be able to write a story at all. It takes time and energy to stick with it. I can only say. CONGRATULATIONS!
I still have 4 chapters to go.
Thanks for the encouragement! I’m certainly enjoying it all!
