What do you like reading about in PR/UF books?

Published 29/10/2013 by leannecrabtree

So I finished reading Storm Born by Richelle Mead last night and it finally made me realise that I’m not a big fan of the Fey. Give me a vampire or shapeshifter and I can be drawn in from the first page but with fairies/sidhe/fey…nah, it doesn’t happen. It cant be put down to Richelle’s book either, as I have the first four books in Julie Kagawa’s The Iron Fey series and after reading the first, The Iron King, I’ve found I’m in no hurry to continue the series.

So I was just wondering: What do you like reading about in Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy books? The poll (you know I’m quite fond of these) below allows for multiple selections, so feel free to pick as many or as few as apply to you. I’m just feeling curious 😀

Onto one of those…

…stages where I just type odd bits that I want to see in future chapters like fights and sex scenes. I then work the rest of the story around it until it all fits together. It’s a weird way or working I know, but it works fairly well for me.

With all the added bits the current work count is: 5541.

We’re getting there slowly 🙂


P.S. Anyone else want to vote on my poll about an Italian name for my male character in another story? Had five votes so far and it seems we cant decide :/

It’s just a little further down my page on the “Which one?” post. Thanks again 😀

Which one?

So I’ve just had a story come to me out of the blue, like they normally do, and I’m stuck for what name to call my male character. Bear in mind it may not get very far, but I feel I should include you on the decision in case it does.

The story is about a group of 3 friends, all girls, travelling around Europe during their gap year at Uni. They meet my (as yet unnamed) Italian and he joins their little group on their travels. (Re)Becca, the main character, starts off wary of him but they get close and start a relationship and then I’m not sure what’s going to happen…something good hopefully.

All I’m asking is what you think his name should be? I have two names I like, Dante and Lucca, but if you like something else feel free to add it under “Other” and leave a comment.

Thanks! 😀

Got it back

Well I’ve just received *Shifter Romance* back from Natalie and apart from a few uses of the wrong word i.e are/or (brain obviously couldn’t keep up with the story in my head and the words I was typing) and one bit of repetition it’s all good.

She says she really liked it, which is music to my ears after all my doubting over the ending.

I’ll start putting up the remaining chapters tomorrow and maybe every other day after that. I’ve left it open for a second book and with that I’m thinking the series name could be Shifter Romance? Just a thought…

Still needing some opinions on the book titles mentioned in my previous post.
