So if I'm going to stick to my writing plan I need to start on the fourth installment of the Blood Revelation series on Wednesday.
I'm undecided whose story to tell.
I come across so many authors blogs and/or interviews where they mention writing a particular character's story because of the requests of their fans. It must be nice having such large scale feedback to help you decide which way to go.
My problem is that I'm starting on book number four, and book numero uno has not even been released yet. It's not due out until the last day of this year. It makes it very hard to determine which character the readers will be dying to know more about at this point.
Of course there's an overall story arc to this series, but I can still highlight one of two possible hero/heroines pairs. Whichever one I choose at this point won't harm the story arc in any way, so this makes my choice tougher.
So... without having readers to guide me where they want me to go, I thought I'd just give brief details of each choice and let some folks decide. I'll becareful not to give away anything to ruin the story for those who wish to read the series.
Option 1: Seta's Story
Seta has been in each of the first three books. She looks like a gorgeous Hispanic future Playboy Playmate, but she's actually a couple centuries old. She's a vampire. And a witch. A powerful combo. Though she's small in size (except for all those curves) she's the last person you want to miss with. Despite a fierce protectiveness of children, she's known to rip off body parts when her ire is raised. Especially if someone misses with her family. The hero to capture her heart? Eron. Gorgeous, Irish vampire older than dirt. Her sire. The man who makes her (traitorous)heart sing, and her claws come out.
Option 2: Christian's story
Christian has also been in all of the first three books. He owns a church--yes, a church--in Baltimore. A very ancient and powerful vampire, but he doesn't show his full power, thanks largely in part to the fact he prefers to drink bagged blood over power-giving fresh blood. He has been friends with Eron since long before Seta was around, yet nobody knows the vampire minister's true origins... or the depth of his power.
The woman to capture his heart? Well, she'd have to be something. You see, Christian doesn't date. Not in the many centuries he's walked the earth. And despite his age and fact that he's a vampire, he's never actually killed anyone. Of course he has destroyed people... but not by murder.
So... Whaddaya think? Who's the most intriguing?
