Finally decided…

Published 08/11/2013 by leannecrabtree

…what books to take. And here they are!


So these are the four lucky books I’ve chosen to take away with me. I always seem to do better reading the Morganville Vampire series when I’m abroad so books 13, Bitter Blood, and 14, Fall of Night, are coming with me. Then Blood Red Road is coming because I quite like a dystopia novel every now and then and finally my signed copy of Eversea just to add a bit of none paranormal/sci-fi to the mix.

I have been known to devour books in the down-time between outings while on holiday so you never know, I may end up coming back with more than I went with ;D

I’ll also be taking my notebooks with me, because with no laptop, that’s where my writing happens and hopefully San Francisco will give me plenty of ideas/inspiration for me to get on with books 0.5 and 3 in my Shifter Romance Novella series.

So I’m trying to work on book 0.5 and 3 of my Shifter Romance Novella series. They’ve both hit walls at the minute.

Book 0.5 was kinda written in short when I explained Misha’s lack of interest in wanting a wolf mate, so I need to flesh it out a bit to make it novella length. It is also, hopefully, going to explain how Kaitlin’s dad became Alpha. *fingers crossed*

As for book 3, Malachi and Ruby’s story, that’s taking a bit of thinking about because it’s got a different plotline to the first two, as in the bad-guy for that one is inside the pack, not an outside source.

I’m also trying to proof Cat’s Wolf’s paperback, i.e. make the cover image less pixelated and then read through it to make sure it makes sense and reads correctly. I think I’ve sorted out the cover, now it’s down to the reading of it. When I’ve done that, and it all checks out, it should be ready for others to buy from Amazon!

My newer version of Cat’s Wolf arrived!

So it came on Saturday and I totally forgot about it, until a minute ago. As you can see it’s smaller than the old one. It also has cream pages, page numbers and I’m not sure if you can make it out but my name and the title are on the spine! Big improvement on last time!

Now it’s just the image which is still slightly pixelated and the page numbers continue onto the preview of book 2, Wolf Claimed, that I also added. It’s not major enough for me to go back and change it all again, so I think I may just approve the proof and set it to distribution through Amazon and Createspace.

I don’t think I’ll be doing Wolf Claimed into paperback yet, as I’d like to get a bit of the way into Shifter Romance Novella, #3, which will be Malachi and Ruby’s story. I’m not really into my writing at the minute, though it has a prologue and I’ve started chapter one.

So, after posting the other day about whether you’d like to win e-book copies of my books, Cat’s Wolf and Wolf Claimed–books 1 and 2 in my Shifter Romance Novella series–and getting several likes and “yes” answers, I decided to put together a Rafflecopter giveaway.

It’s open internationally. Just click the link below to be taken to the giveaway (my blog doesn’t like HTML so it wont show the widget, unfortunately).

Thinking of doing a giveaway of my books

Since it hasn’t been that long since I finished Wolf Claimed, I’m thinking of doing a Rafflecopter giveaway of books 1 and 2 in the series…so I was wondering if anyone would be interested? It would be open internationally and I’d have maybe 4 or 5 winners of the e-books?

Wolf Claimed is Live!

Wolf Claimed went live a little before midnight last night and is now available across all Amazon sites. Here are the links to the UK and US sites:

I really hope you like it 🙂

…I’ve started working on Book 3 of the Shifter Romance Novella series. Strange I know, considering I haven’t finished the second one yet, but that’s just how I roll 😛

Yeah, I’ve decided it will be Malachi’s story. He deserves a HEA after being kicked out of the Cat Clan, simply for being a jaguar and the one person who might have been able to beat Paul Mahone in a fight. Well, he beat him anyway in the end, didn’t he?

Anyway, I’ve decided to pair him up with a red-haired, tattooed, kick-ass wolf from Rhys’ pack, who we meet in Wolf Claimed (well, you will be doing when it’s finished and on Amazon ;P). As with the rest it will be from the female’s POV and we see she has just come out of a bad relationship with a fellow clan member and while helping Mal help the Pack they become involved. Once again, I have no real plot, so we’ll have to see where it goes but the guy she was with isn’t a fan of the Cat Clan (that much I have decided) and he doesn’t like the thought of Ruby (that’s her name, btw) with Mal.

Word Counts

Wolf Claimed: 15,227

Untitled Book 3: 1,976

P.S. If you’d like to help me with names, like you did the first two, feel free. Just leave me a comment and I’ll get back to you 😀

On with the next

Published 12/06/2013 by leannecrabtree

So today I’m going to try and finish the first chapter of my second book in the “Shifter Romance Novella” series (*Shifter Romance* now called “Cat’s Wolf” being book 1). I haven’t really thought about a plot but I have wrote notes on what I want the first chapter to go like. All of about 6 sentences.

I admit I have a weird way of working!

It’s going to be based on Brent and Misha and if I’m going to called it “Wolf Claimed” then I really need to think this one out. How is he going to claim her? Sexually? As his? Both?

I also need to bring Tito back into it since he never reappeared in the first…I’ll admit I forgot about him :/ Let’s say he went and licked his wounds from the ass-whooping he received from Rhys??

Maybe get Raoul to appear and figure out who he was working for…

And maybe Shanae could be in Rhys’ pack now having left the main one…and be my third story??


Well as you’ve probably gathered, I haven’t thought this through at all so it may take me a while to write–another 6/7 months like the last one?
