Wanted to let you know that my e-novel, Fallen Angels, is free on Amazon for 5 days. It’s the first book in that series, and it’s a little different from most urban fantasies. I mixed supernaturals and mortals together, letting the mortals play important roles in the story, too. My thought was, if vampires and fallen angels lived in a mortal world, wouldn’t they all interact now and then? And don’t the supernaturals and mortals have, basically, the same wants and needs? The same types of struggles? Don’t they mirror each other in many ways? It’s one of the reasons I enjoy writing about Enoch and Danny.
When I wrote my Wolf’s Bane series, I was a good girl and played by the rules. Mortals are merely a backdrop to the struggles the gargoyles, witches, and werewolves engage in. Good supernaturals respect mortals. Bad supernaturals see them as weak, and therefore as pawns or prey. THAT makes for fun, too:)
Lastly, when I wrote the Empty Altars series, I decided to go for broke. Why mess with mortals and supernaturals when I could write about gods and goddesses? I’ve always loved myths, so what better choice for protagonists than my beloved Greek and Norse deities? The thing is, even gods and goddesses struggle with right and wrong, how to protect mortals, and with limitations. I guess there’s just no getting around it. It would be bad news for a writer anyway. Where would the wants and needs come into play? The internal and external conflict? If life were perfect, there wouldn’t be much to write about.
