Lycan Next Generation

Christmas Katya and Karina copyMy readers have been asking about the next generation stories that go with my three paranormal series, The Siberian Volkov Pack Romances, The Witch Guardian Fantasy Romances and The Shadow Walker Romances. These stories would highlight the children of the various couples you met before, all grown up.

I’m so excited to announce that the first in my new series, The Volkov Family Chronicles is here! Where else would I start, but with the stories of the children of Siberian Lycan, Dmitry Volkov, and his mate, Violet, from Alpha’s Mate.

Some of the themes really hit home for me. It’s now twenty-six years after Alpha’s Mate and the world has changed considerably for our characters. The world is a smaller place. The same could be said about the world changing for you and me.

Do you remember when the first cell phones came out? They were huge and so expensive only the rich or government officials had one. Now everyone has one and most of the time they are within reach.

Not to mention other forms of technology, drones, AI, social media, cameras, and computers. Everything seems to be caught on camera these days. Making it hard to hide anything from anybody. So if you were a supernatural being, how would you stay hidden from the masses?

This is the world my characters will find themselves. All of my characters from all three of my series. We will journey with them as they find their way. I hope you will be excited to join me.

Katya Volkov is all grown-up and working in New York City. She has the unfortunate title of “Ice Princess” because she can’t get past friendship with a man. The only one she ever loved, Illarion Lebedev, left Siberia when she was sixteen and she hasn’t seen him since. Unwilling to return to Russia and a life in a pack where women are expected to mate and have babies, preferably girls. She has worked hard for the last four years at Sunrise Advertising. Now a vice-president, she’s finally accomplished a level of success. But what does success really mean when you’re all alone at the top?

Illarion Lebedev has secretly watched over Katya since she was in college. He’s proud of her accomplishments. Now that his plans are coming together and he’s the new CEO of Sunrise Advertising, he’s ready to finally claim his mate. But wooing the “Ice Princess” will take more than his good looks and social position. It will take a love strong enough to thaw her wounded heart.

ALPHA’S MATE
Book One of the Siberian Volkov Pack Romance Series

I have always loved this book and now after three years of writing and releasing eleven books since this one was published, I thought it was time to go back and bring Dmitry and Violet up to the standards of writing that I am capable of today. I also wanted to release this book in paperback and thought it needed some expansion to make the cost worthwhile for me as the author, as well as for you the reader. So here it is, with more sex scenes, more descriptions and more love.
I have also included two non-fiction articles. “Why Siberia?” and “Love at First Sight, Believe in the Possibility”. These explain why I set my world of Lycans up the way I did, as well as why I believe in “Love at First Sight” which I gave to my characters through the mating bond.
I hope you will love the changes I’ve made, including this new cover designed by Hot Damn Designs with some added parts by me, mainly the wolf and wording.

Love at First Sight – Believe in the Possibility

Book heart

Love at First Sight – Believe in the possibility

Caryn Moya Block

 

I’ve written about my personal experiences of “Love at First Sight” in previous articles, but as I prepare to release the Special Anniversary Extended Edition of Alpha’s Mate, I wanted to visit the topic again. Some people think love at first sight is a ridiculous fairy tale. So, I wanted to find some statistics and dive a little deeper to find the truth.

According to statisticbrain.com, 71% of Americans believe in love at first sight and on postyour.info/statistics, 34 % of people who responded believed. Wow, that is a huge number of people, but that is just those who believe in love at first sight. These statistic do not address if there really is such a thing.

Dr. Earl Naumann, author of Love at First Sight, interviewed and surveyed 1,500 individuals of all races, religions, and backgrounds all across America, and concluded that love at first sight is not a rare experience. What’s more, Dr. Naumann theorizes that if you believe in love at first sight, there’s roughly a 60 % chance it will happen to you. Here’s what led him to that conclusion:

  • Nearly two thirds of the population believes in love at first sight.
  • Of the believers, more than half have experienced it.
  • 55 % of those who experienced it married the object of their affection.
  • Three quarters of these married couples stayed married.

 

Okay, now we’re talking numbers. What about science?

According to an article on pychologytoday.com, after changing the wording to “love at first acquaintance”, Elliot D. Cohen, Ph.D concluded that yes, love at first sight does exist and there was no reason to suppose otherwise.

Then I found an article about the really interesting scientific study that published in the Nov. 7 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. Jeffrey Cooper, a psychology researcher who conducted the study while he was a postdoctoral student at Trinity College was able to map the specific areas in the brain that were involved in our love at first sight decision processes.

In the first few milliseconds of seeing a new face, we’re evaluating physical attractiveness using one specific region of the medial prefrontal cortex, called the paracingulate cortex. But the rostromedial prefrontal cortex goes a bit deeper, very quickly asking, “Yeah, but are they compatible with me?”

“These really are separate processes,” Cooper said. “But they really are both happening in your head as you make those initial evaluations.”

It seems that the truth of “love at first sight” is that our brains are wired to make that evaluation in milliseconds and believing it’s possible is the beginning. So, I invite you to believe in love at first sight, it might happen to you or someone you know.

Confessions of a Para-Normal – The First Book

Rose on pageConfessions of a Para-Normal – The First Book

By Caryn Moya Block

I always wanted to write a book. I loved reading and stepping into other author’s worlds. But the dream of being an author had been put on a shelf until I approached turning 50. Several things happened at that time. I got sick, and had to quit my job. Then it took me six months to get well. For the first time since moving to VA, I wasn’t working at least part-time.

Money was tight, since I wasn’t working, so I stayed home. One morning I began to write. By 2010, I had fifteen or so stories done. I won’t go into how I cyber-stalked authors and learned their marketing techniques. We’ll save that for a regular post on author techniques.

Anyway, in January of 2011, I went to a Theta healing class and announced that I was going to write a book and self-publish it. My friends all encouraged me and I went home feeling pretty good about myself. I had a goal. In April, I turned 50.

During that year, I took several other Theta healing classes with the same group of people. In one of them, we were learning how to connect with the Divine and give answers to a client’s questions. I asked the person I worked with, which book I should publish first. Remember, I had written several by this time.

Her answer surprised me when she said “I’m getting the name Violet. Does that mean anything to you?” It took me a minute, and then I remembered my character’s name in Alpha’s Mate. So that told me which book to focus on.

Some people might think I rushed home and got to work on my manuscript. But they would be wrong. My story wasn’t long enough and needed major revisions, and I let life get in the way without accomplishing anything.

In October of 2011, I went to a new age convention in Ohio. The friend I was traveling with told me to get online and decide which psychic I wanted a reading from. She explained that we would have to go first thing, and get in line at their booth, so we could sign up for a scheduled time.

I didn’t know any of the people coming, so I looked through the names and found one that resonated with me. Instead of standing in line, I emailed the lady and told her I was coming in from VA. She graciously gave me an appointment time. So I was all set and with very little hassle.

I went to my reading at the scheduled time and sat down, my notebook in hand so I could take notes. The psychic said “I see a book in your future, in fact, I see three books and you are way behind!”

I was stunned. The year was almost over and I hadn’t done anything to get my manuscript ready for publishing. I asked myself some hard questions. Did I want to be an author or didn’t I? Was I willing to sit and let time slip by, when not only was the Divine clueing me in but was telling me I was way behind?

When I got home, I got to work on Alpha’s Mate and self-published it January 1st 2012. The book went viral its second month and as they say, the rest is history.

When I look back, I am so glad I listened to the Divine and the messages it shared with me. Thanks goodness, those two people were willing to be used as vessels to give me the information I needed to hear.

It’s not always easy to listen to those communications from the Divine. It’s so simple to think it a coincidence or ignore the idea completely. But the messages are there if we will only listen, myself included.
