You might have seen a recent post on my Facebook page in which I asked for readers' opinions on the growing sexual tension between my heroine Jessica Stone, and the alpha werewolf Danny Mason in my Redcliffe novels. Jessica is in love with Danny's identical twin brother, the vampire Jack Mason, so she is understandably very confused right now.
Anyway, I digress. My Muse has been very bossy this week, and has had me furiously typing away on the manuscript whenever I found time. I am very excited about our progress with the third book Love Redeems (A Redcliffe Novel) but now I am faced with another dilemma. My books seem to favour rather violent endings, and poor old Jessica is feeling the brunt of it.
So far I have managed to keep the body count to a minimum, killing a few werewolves and one vampire in Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel) and Love Kills (A Redcliffe Novel). There were plenty of near-death experiences for Jessica, the Mason brothers, and their close friends. But that's not enough apparently. My Muse (who, by the way insists that she be known to all as Suri Sans) is demanding more bloodshed. It means I now have to rewrite the ending of Love Redeems, because the one we have is too soft.
I am just slightly unnerved, but I will do as I am told. It is the way of the writer and her Muse of infinite wisdom...
