Interview with  Laura- 

Can you tell us a little more about your characters that we might not know?
Novie, the heroine, is a bit of an unusual person. As a werewolf, she’s at the bottom of the pecking order, a submissive wolf, yet she ended up working as one of the Alpha’s guards. She’s super fast and stealthy so she’s a scout.

She’s also pretty prejudiced against dominant wolves. They boss her around, they take up too much space, they’re always talking and never listening. That’s when they’re not fighting over something stupid.

Kyle, the hero, is one of eleven brothers—all dominant wolves. He’s cocky and cheerful, but he doesn’t seem to know or care about the rules of pack politics. Novie doesn’t understand how his brain works, at all. But for some reason she can’t stop thinking about him…

How hard is it writing a 2nd book- is it a whole new project or just more of the same book?

It’s a whole new project.

I do a lot of worldbuilding to write the first book. This makes the second book easier in some respects, but you have to continue developing the world as you go, and keep it consistent through a series. I’m keeping a series “bible” to help me along.

The other thing is that you can’t assume readers have read the previous book, so you have to put in enough backstory in each book in the series for it to make sense to a new reader. You also don’t want to bore people who have read the previous book. It’s a fine balance.


And of course, there are new characters and a brand new story arc, too, and that’s as much work as it is in any book.
