Writing in the Dark

Everybody’s reading preferences and personal tastes are different. Everybody’s. Some readers wish I’d stop writing darker, edgier stuff while others say they want more of that. Some tell me not to write as many shifter stories. Others say no more romantic comedies. Votes have been lodged for more contemporaries, more novellas rather than novels (???), and more scifi. My mother wishes I’d go back to writing het (though she gets credit from me for fully supporting me in writing M/M even if she doesn’t understand why I like it). A few think my writing strength is teh smokin’ hot smexy so I should concentrate on erotica, while several believe I should stretch and challenge myself with other stuff—this “stuff” defined by each person, of course.

Career by jury, anyone?

If I listened to it all, I’d be nuts. Seriously—nuts.

I like writing dark. I like sappy sweet (for me anyway) shifter stories too, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes, nothing but the dark will do. Have you ever lost everything? I have. When you’re at your lowest, when you’re in pain and don’t know what to do, that’s when you reveal your true self. All the bs we think is so important—money, status, the thousands of things capitalism (God bless advertising) tells us we need—all of that is stripped away. The money’s gone. The social climbing’s done, your career is finished. All the pretty things you thought were so vital have vanished and it’s just you. Only you. Sometimes what you find there, in the dark, isn’t very flattering, but it’s part of who you are, warts and all. Nobody’s perfect. Recognizing what and who you are, the good along with the bad has, its own magic. You discover your truth.

Wyatt, in Tame a Wild Human, has everything taken from him. What he finds in the dark is terrifying. Horrifying. I’m not just talking about the wolves. Nope, sorry. The dark isn’t that easy. He also sees human cruelty. He sees, with painful clarity, what the society of which he was once part does to its weak and vulnerable. It isn’t a beautiful picture, not about that society or about him for having, if not actively participating in those abuses, at least tacitly condoning it by doing nothing to stop it.

Only you can decide what you will do with what you find once you become part of the dark. Wyatt will need to decide too. Will he continue with his plans to return to the city and the predation he knows he’ll find there…or dare to try something else? Maintain the status quo, despite the dark, or…?

What would you do?

TameAWildHuman_400x600About Tame a Wild Human

Drugged, bound, and left as bait on the cusp of the lunar cycle, Wyatt Redding is faced with a terrifying set of no-win scenarios. Best case: he survives the coming days as a werewolf pack’s plaything and returns to the city as a second-class citizen with the mark—and protection—of the pack. Worst case: the wolves sate their lusts with Wyatt’s body, then send him home without their protection, condemning him to live out the rest of his short life as a slave to the worst of humanity’s scorn and abuse.

Wyatt’s only chance is to swallow every ounce of pride, bury his fear, and meekly comply with every wicked desire and carnal demand the wolf pack makes of him. He expects three days of sex and humiliation. What he doesn’t expect is to start enjoying it. Or to grow attached to his captor and pack Alpha, Cole.

As the lunar cycle ends, Wyatt begins to realize that the only thing to fear more than being sent home without the pack’s protection is being sent home at all.
