Thank goodness this is a blog for whatever I want to write!
I did it! I finally finished the sequel to Little Red Riding Wolf. I’ve turned it in, so now we’ll see what happens next. One of the things about hitting send is that I now think that everything should have been changed. I start second guessing myself and my plot and my characters. But I had fun!
This story is a little darker than Little Red Riding Wolf, which makes sense. It’s a tale of two people who desperately need to trust each other, but have lots of reasons why they should never have met in the first place. Take one anti-hero and put him in a situation where no one else will step in, add in a dark haired damsel in distress, then mix in hot chemical attraction and what do you have? Snow and the Seventh Wolf.
Or at least that’s the title I’ve been working with. Hopefully you guessed that it’s based on Snow White, and given the amount of Snow White stories in the media it should get some attention. Between Mirror Mirror, and Snow White and the Huntsman, there have been lots of Snow White stories out there. But mine is about werewolves and hot spicy romance.
If you’ve read Little Red Riding Wolf you know Seth as the bad apple. In Snow and the Seventh Wolf he’s been sent up to Wyoming to stay with his six cousins. (I couldn’t do dwarfs, not with hot muscular werewolves to choose from instead.) Seth is moody and unhappy, but when he has the chance to shine, he does. Even if it’s with a good dose of reluctance.
I moved my wolves from Radon, Colorado, mostly because I wanted to make the story darker. Many of the characters in Radon have taken on a lighter cast. Shapeshifting grannies just lend themselves to a little bit of humor. I wanted to create a dark background and the steep mountains and gorgeous forests of Jackson Hole just did that better. Also Seth needed some kind of punishment for his actions in Little Red Riding Wolf, and exile suited my needs.
I’m still intending to write more about Radon and the wolves there. Luckily there are a lot of fairy tales still unwritten in my world of tongue in cheek, spicy-hot, Radon. Next on my list is Goldilocks. Watch out whose house you wander into!
Have you seen any of the twisted fairy tale movies? I have yet to watch them, but as soon as they are in Redbox, I’m on it! I know some of you watched Grimm and Once Upon a Time with me. I’m excited for next season. What stories do you think would lend themselves to hot, twisted, romance? Any favorites you haven’t seen done yet?
