Thanks, Rose Marie, for joining us. She has a group where she allows authors to share their promos also and she allows for author blogs too. So here is a little about Rose Marie:
From a very young age, Rose Marie Wolf was interested in things that weren’t quite normal, so it was no surprise when she grabbed her crayon and started scribbling out short stories about vampires, werewolves, ghosts, fairies, elves and all manner of paranormal creatures.
Her combined love of writing and the supernatural grew and, in 2002, she began writing on her first serious work, a short story about werewolves she called “Sweet Moon Dreams”. A few years later, with the help of her fiancé, she developed the story into a novel-sized manuscript.
Rose Marie lives in Indiana, with a menagerie of pets, not including her fiancé and his mother. She is currently working on her next supernatural adventure and she encourages readers and fans to join her discussion group on Yahoo! to chat about books, writing, publishing and her upcoming releases.
The Moon Series
A few people have asked me why I decided to write my paranormal books as a series and honestly, I don’t know what to tell them.
Because it didn’t start out that way.
I wasn’t planning on a series. I just wanted to write a book—one book. That was it. But, that one book kind of grew. My first manuscript for Sweet Moon Dreams was huge. There was no way a publisher was going to accept that size manuscript from an unknown author.
So, I took a deep breath and went through the book. I found what I thought was a logical cut-off point and the book became two.
Originally, Sweet Moon Dreams and Blood Moon were going to be the only books. A first book and its sequel. I sent them in to Samhain Publishing, after having about a doze rejections and they accepted it.
But then, I started thinking about the story and what if…
Hunter’s Moon was born. As I wrote the book, I told myself I was finished. Absolutely finished. I wasn’t going to I wasn’t going to do another book. This was the end of the series.
Then my characters, Jason and Rose, took me in directions I hadn’t planned on and left me reeling.
I needed another book.
The last book, Dark Moon Magick which is due out later this year from Red Rose Publishing, is the absolute conclusion of the series.
And I mean it this time!
