Love is Complicated

Book heart

Wow! Here it is February and I haven’t written a blog since the New Year. I’m so sorry. Life has been kind of exciting around here, to the point where I had to move my deadline for “Trapped In Shadow” back to March. Still not sure of the exact release date, but I will let you know as it gets closer.

For those of you who are signed up for my newsletter, you’ve seen pictures of my granddaughter, Amilya. She was born a preemie and had a hard time coming into the world. She and I bonded while she was still in the womb and I delight in every second we have together. So when my son said he was taking his family to live in Florida, I was heartbroken.

I had been doing so well with my writing, too. Up to Chapter 14 in “Trapped” and planning four or five more. Now however, I am grieving the loss and break up of my family and have a hard time even thinking of what words to put on the paper. I’m afraid it may take me a couple of weeks to get my mojo back.

You probably think that’s funny since I’m writing this blog without a problem. But the truth is, writing this blog helps me get some of my emotions out so I can move on. I keep reminding myself that the world is different from when I was a child. We have Facetime and Skype now. I may not be able to hold Amilya, but chances are with some effort on my part she won’t forget me.

So bear with me. I will get my act together soon and the next and possibly last Shadow Walker book will come your way. I know you’ll love Hugh and Stacey’s story.

Throw Me To The Wolves: A Quick Chat with Caryn Moya Block

By Madeline Iva (Originally Published Nov. 19th on LadySmut.com)

So this week I just had time to grab a quick chat with Caryn Moya Block who was at the Washington Romance Writers luncheon for Bloggers & Readers back in October.  Caryn is such a sweet woman, as well as a very successful romance author.  She currently has three series, but by far her most popular is her wolf shifter series. 

 

Have a favorite wolf character? Do tell.

 

MADELINE IVA: you write paranormal stuff — can you recommend anything that you really loved reading in the paranormal realm that’s super steamy or erotic romance?

CARYN MOYA BLOCK: I just read Kate Douglas’s DARK WOLF from her new Spirit Wild Series. It is both steamy and erotic. I loved it!

MADELINE IVA:Why do you love it so?

CARYN MOYA BLOCK: It celebrates love and I think that is hugely important. The love between mates and between friends, no mater what the gender. I hope that one day the world will be able to do the same.

MADELINE IVA:What’s your fav paranormal movie?

CARYN MOYA BLOCK: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s’ Stone

MADELINE IVA: Any fav wolfie stuff to share?

Hello Mr. Wolf.

Hello Mr. Wolf.

CARYN MOYA BLOCK: I have been coveting one or two of these wolf statues.

MADELINE IVA:What’s the latest/greatest in the world of paranormal?

CARYN MOYA BLOCK:  *LOL*, I have seen bigfoot and yeti romance, which might be fun to write. Also Zombies seem to be huge, but decaying flesh is not romantic to me, so I don’t get it. The nice thing about Paranormal is that it includes everything out of the normal. That covers a lot of topics.

MADELINE IVA: Tell us about your latest book.

CARYN MOYA BLOCK: My Newest Release is HERE.

New Release – Shadow Mate – Sneak Peak #3

New Release, November 17th, “Shadow Mate”, Book Eleven in the Siberian Volkov Pack Romance Series.

Shadow Walker meets Siberian Lycan.

Sneak Peak #3:

A pull on the heartmate bond made him hope that Lindy was once again coming out of her drug induced sleep.

He reached for her through the heartmate cord, letting his dream take him. He sent her a mental caress and walked out of darkness into a room filled with people. A bar served drinks while a band played in the corner. Puzzled, he frowned. This wasn’t his dream. He’d never been here before.

A woman with long dark hair, wearing a red dress, turned at the bar and smiled when she saw him. “You came,” whispered in his mind.

He moved toward her, taking in her slender build and small stature. A punch of lust hit him hard. She was the most beautiful woman he’d ever seen, and she was his. Her chocolate eyes filled with warmth as he reached for her hand and brought it to his lips. “I will always come for you, Lindy.”

New Release – Shadow Mate – Second Sneak Peek

New Release, November 17th, “Shadow Mate”, Book Eleven in the Siberian Volkov Pack Romance Series.

Shadow Walker meets Siberian Lycan.

Sneak Peak #2:

Raven brushed Lindy’s mind. Her thoughts were fuzzy, but she fought the drugs in her system.

“Mate comes,” she sent him.

“Joe, Lindy’s mate is coming to her. Who is it and why hasn’t he contacted me?”

“I haven’t heard of anyone being marked. Are you sure?”

“Yes, she just told me. If her mate would track her through Shadow, we could find her in minutes.”

“I’ll alert security. You should check with Hugh Thunder Hoof. As far as I know, no one has come forward.”

“When we know who it is, I’ll walk him through Shadow to Moscow myself.”

“Raven, has it occurred to you that maybe he isn’t a Shadow Walker? Doesn’t it seem strange that Lindy has found a mate in Russia?”

New Release – Shadow Mate – First Sneak Peek

New Release, November 17th, “Shadow Mate”, Book Eleven in the Siberian Volkov Pack Romance Series.

Shadow Walker meets Siberian Lycan.

Sneak Peak #1:

Sergei nodded and then raised his arms over his head to call the change. His body grew warm, as sparks of light coalesced around him. He felt the first movement of energy, as his bones reformed and fur sprang from his skin, rolling down his body. The transformation finished in an instant. Where a man once stood, a large white wolf appeared.

Artur opened the front door and Sergei ran into the snow.
