Blood Avenged and My New Project: the Sons of Navarus Series

It's Friday, and I'm so looking forward to the weekend.  Edits continue on Blood Avenged, and the book is on track for a December 14 release.  The wonderful Talina Perkins is making me a banner that is going to be stunning (they always are), and the entire first chapter of the book is being included in the one volume book for The Victorian Erotic Romance Trilogy that's going on sale early next week.  Looks to be another busy weekend. :)

On the day job front, next week is my last week of school until January, so I'm looking forward to another break.  LOL  The fall and winter breaks seem to be right on top of one another, but that's ok with me. 

I plan to start writing the first book in the Sons of Navarus series that will begin at the end of Blood Avenged, so that will be terrific fun.  I'm hoping to have at least the first book out in 2012, if not the second.  The basic premise is that Vasilije isn't just an incredibly seductive and powerful vampire sire but also a member of an order of vampires that must protect their fellow vamps from the Archons, vampires who since ancient times have been chosen to act as the police and judges of the vampire world.  Long ago, a prophecy said that the Archons would take over the vampire world, eliminating the most powerful of the vampires to ensure their power to rule is unchecked.  The Sons of Navarus must act to end the takeover and protect their world.  The first book is about Declan, one of the Sons and the brother of a vampire the Archons have already murdered. I have to admit I've already fallen in love with him as I've been sketching out his character. Unlike Vasilije, who's seductive and smooth, Declan is dark and brooding with a secretive past. I'm a sucker for brooding vampires. ;)

2011 has been a good year for me.  I've released five books since June (to be honest, two of them were written, for the most part, in 2010) and the sixth will be released in just a little over a week.  Sales have surpassed anything I could have imagined when I first put Vampire Dreams on Amazon that late May night, with almost 15,000 books sold since June 1.  All I can say is thanks and I promise to keep them coming as I look forward to 2012 and this new series.

Unless 2012 means the end of the world.  Then I'm not so pumped.  LOL Here's to a wonderful weekend of holiday fun!
