Hello everyone! My name is Meagan Hatfield and today I’m going to be giving you all a teaser of my upcoming dark paranormal dragon story. But first I’d like to thank the lovely and talented shapeshifter ladies for letting me join the fold. I’m truly in awe and have serious fangirl moments everytime I check in here. *smiles*
Oh, and I have to mention that I saw Underworld – Rise of the Lycans last night…ohmigosh, it rocked the casbah! I totally agree with Marcia – definitely a B+, maybe even an A from me, since I knew all the flaws going in and therefore failed to think they were that huge.
It’s funny that I’m just a few posts behind Marcia’s wonderful review of Underworld 3. Not only did I go yesterday, see and love it just as I knew I would, I actually used the phrase ‘it’s like Underworld with dragons instead of werewolves’ in my query letter to help pitch Book 1 in my dragon-shifter series, DRAGON FIRE. lol!
Now, I don’t know about other writers, but when I first starting writing toward publication, I was convinced I would never write anything but historical romance. I just couldn’t see myself being able to branch out into a multi-genre writer. Then I was asked to participate in an anthology with three other authors, and decided to try my hand at something maybe a little dark and a whole lot paranormal – my first shifter story. I set what became my award-winning novella, “Claiming the Lamb” (now out of print) in a world of battling vampires and dragon-shifting heroes. I absolutely adored writing it and I loved, Lachlan – the sexy alpha dragon. There was something about him, about his story, his past that, no matter what project I happened to be working on, always kept talking to me. So, I continued to write my historical romance novel, while tinkering with my idea of writing something similar and yet new and different from CTL on the side, adding plot ideas, character notes, etc.
Then one day, the perfect reason came along for me to sit down and commit to said dragon story…I won a first chapter critique from an editor at Silhouette Nocturne – the perfect house for the characters and stories going through my mind. So, I sat down, wrote the story that had been brewing for the better part of a year and sent it off to New York. Never did I think winning that critique would lead to selling my book. But boy am I glad it did! I’m so excited to be writing these about these yummy dragon heroes and the women who can’t resist them!
All right, teaser and CONTEST time! This one is easy. Just watch the book trailer for DRAGON FIRE
Then post a comment below with the dragon hero’s name, and you could win this beautiful dragon bangle bracelet!
I’d also love to hear what everyone thinks of dragons as shifter heroes in general, so if you have an opinion, if you love them or if you like wolves or vampires better, just holler! I’ll be popping in and selecting a winner tomorrow.
