True Blood Mate 3

Logan Stone lives a lonely existence as the beta of his wolf clan. It's his job to protect his people and follow out the orders of his alpha. That doesn't leave much time to find a mate or fill the empty hole in his heart. When he spots a set of sexy eyes staring at him during the moon festival, Logan knows he has met his mate.
Finding Love Star is not as easy as keeping him. Love may be fascinated by all things wolf but when Logan goes feral during their mating, Love runs for his life. Logan has to call for help to find Love, only discover his mate is hiding right under his nose at the Stone Clan compound.

Instead of convincing Love of the merits of being mated to a wolf, Logan has to depend on Love to protect himself even as he tries to shield the man from the dangerous world he has just entered. If they survive the interference of well meaning friends and a coyote shifter bent on killing Love, they just might have a chance of finding out what fate has planned for them.

Interview with Stormy Glenn

1.) Do you ever sleep?  How many words do you usually write per day?

Yes, actually I do sleep, strangely enough. I've found a good night's rest makes me more productive the next day. Although, there are those nights every once in awhile when a story just won't let me go and I end up writing all night long. I've been known to stay up 22 hrs straight, writing. Doesn't happen often because I'm usually dead afterwards.

How many words I write in a single day varies depending on my characters, my family, and what's on TV. In the last week, I had one day where I wrote 849 words. The day before that, I wrote 9,006. So, it greatly varies. I'm pretty satisfied if I get 5,000 done in a single day.

2.) What is the appeal of writing a series opposed to a stand-alone novel?

I like revisiting old characters, even if they are just supporting characters. I like seeing how their lives progress along with the new characters. I like that in what I read and I like that in what I write. 

3.) What got you started in writing m/m romance?

A love for romance, what else? Yes, I get it that it sounds a little strange but I love romance. I am a firm believer in true love, love at first sight, and happy ever afters. I do not think that the sex of the people involved changes it. You love who you love. It's as simple as that. I've loved my high tech redneck since the minute I saw him 25years ago and it just keeps getting better every day.

4.) How do you come up with so many original ideas?

It's not easy, let me tell you. Luckily for me, I'm slightly crazy and see stories everywhere I look. For example, I saw the word "den" the other day and got to thinking…what if the home base/house/compound/ whatever you wanted to call it, was called a "den". Or, what if when two shifters mated, they had a certain amount of time to complete their bond or it faded? Or, what if…you get the basic idea. I love to play "what if". I do it when I'm driving, cooking dinner, watching TV… basically all the time.

5.) What are you working on now and what can we expect from you in the future?

 Oh, that’s an interesting question. I have a lot of books in progress right now because I never know what is going to grab me and what won't on any given day. As many of my readers know, I have a short attention span but a huge imagination. If something catches my interest, I'm off to work on it, research it, create characters for it, and see where the idea takes me.

Besides my current work list, and some stories I want to add to several of my series, I've been researching dragons and Greek Mythology lately, and not necessarily for the same book. I've also had an idea about King Arthur and the Knights of the round table… gonna go to my yahoo group for that one and we'll play the "what if" game, see what we can come up with. I love brainstorming with my yahoo group. They have a wicked imagination and an even great sense of humor. They've been a lot of help to me when I need a little extra inspiration.

***Stormy will pick one lucky commentor to win an ecopy of Love Sexy!***

Great interview! I love Stormy Glenn's work, I have read just about everyone of her books. I say just about, because she has so many and I read so many books it can be hard to keep track sometimes, LOL...

Brandi said...

Great interview. I've been really looking forward to Love Sexy ever since Stormy mentioned her idea for this story in her yahoo group.

Can't wait for Love Sexy, but then I can't wait until any book of yours is released. What can I say, I'm an addict!!

Great interview - it's always fun to get a sneak peak into an author's writing process. The True Blood Mate series has quickly become one of my favorites.

This is a great interview! I really like the Knights of the Round Table idea; you could take that in a lot of different directions. And I CAN'T WAIT for Love Sexy. :)

Sarah said...

Sounds like a great book! And I love the cover :-) How many books will be in the series, do you know?

I have a short attention span, too. My dh calls me a Kender. I'll be in the middle of doing something or talking to him, and go off on a tangent in mid word! Kind of like walking a path and all of a sudden, OOO! Shiny! and heading off in another direction! LOL!

Stormy, I love your books! Are you going to do more in the Love's Legacy series? If there is more, I apologize for not getting them yet!

Stormy Glenn said...

Thank you for all your wonderful comments. Glad you've enjoyed the books. I have no idea how many books there will be in this series. Currently, there are 4. I'll keep writing them as long as the ideas keep coming.
Currently, there are only 2 books in the Love's Legacy series. I hope to write more at some point though. Love cowboys!

Great interview, Stormy - I have to say I never liked reading M/M until reading your books and now it's one of my favorite genres. I look forward to each of your releases.

Stormy is not only a great writer with a magnificent imagination but she has to be one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to work with.

I do like visiting the old characters too. Lucky for us you like to write that.

Bring on the dragons, please, I love shifters in many forms. :)
