It’s been a long time since I wrote a whole 50k words on one work. For the past year I’ve been much more focused on smaller works. From the very beginning of the series I knew I wanted all the Naughty Holiday List stories to be shorter works (though each one is a little bigger than the one before it).
It’s been so long I’ve forgotten all the prework that goes into a novel. A novella I can keep in my head, but a novel, with all the side characters and multiple story lines, emotional growth and falling love, it’s too much for my little noggen. So I’ve spent a majority of my writing time for the last few days putting together an outline and blurb to focus my writing.
Here’s the preliminary blurb for my nano project (still untitled)--
After being kicked out of the pack and from the home she’d known her entire life, for becoming pregnant with a half breed, Madison has learned to support herself. The only priorities in her life are taking care of her daughter, Brianna, and the wonderful human, or two-leg, family that helped her when she had no one else. She doesn’t need a mate, and she doesn’t want one.
Hunter never thought he’d find a mate. Banished from Wolf Lake for crimes against the hierocracy, Hunter believed he’d be destined to wander forever without a pack or mate of his own. But fate turns in his favor, when his bike is crashed, and ends up in the repair shop complete with not only the sexiest she-wolf he’s ever seen, but one who’s scent tells him she is undeniably his mate.
Madison may not want a mate, or believes she needs one, but Hunter doesn’t plan on giving her a choice. And come hell, high water, ex-boyfriends or meddling two-legger foster parents, Hunter is determined to prove that Madison she not only wants him, but she needs him, forever. Because Hunter always keeps what he catches.
