Insatiable Reads Blog Hop

Thursday, July 18, 2013

I have a special treat for you all today as part of the Hot Summer Romance Giveaway Hop sponsored by The Insatiable Reads Book Tour I have author MaryLynn Bast here telling us about her Heart Of The Wolf Series and how it became a series we all LOVE. I will be giving away ebook copy of the whole series to 1 LUCKY COMMENTER.  So grab a drink sit back and get ready for the 

where she is 
 I have always loved writing. One day a friend told me that I should enter a fifteen hundred word contest for a werewolf story.  I started the story as a horror and asked my friend to read it. Being new to the world of letting other people see my writing I was devastated when she told me the story needed a lot of work.  It took the wind out of my sails and I set it aside and stopped writing.  Being a true writer, I couldn't help but continue working on something, so I went back to what I was used to…contemporary romance.  I wrote for a couple weeks but I wasn't satisfied with my work. I then realized my werewolf story was calling to me and I didn’t have to write it as a horror. I could write it as a paranormal romance. Excited, I spent hours upon hours working on my story to get it just right. Then I asked my friend to read it again. She told me I still needed to fix a lot with it. I decided it was time for me to get opinions from others and actually got an agent who was excited to work with me.

After dealing with the agent for a while I was just not too excited about continuing writing if this was some of the things I was going to have to deal with. We dissolved our contract.  After many rewrites and different editors I stumbled my way through self-publishing and put No Remorse out. I was done. I had no intention of publishing another book. I had one published, I had reached my goal.

Suddenly I was being contacted by people who had read the book wanting to know when the next story was coming out. They loved the characters and wanted more. I was shocked that people actually liked my story and this encouraged me. I started writing the novellas, expanding on the characters of No Remorse, telling their stories and the Heart of a Wolf Series was born.

After a couple of months of writing the novellas I ventured to have an erotic story published through Sizzler Editions, One Bite To Passion. This year on May 6, 2013 I self-published Steamy Fairy Tales, an adult take on Beauty and the Beast, Goldilox, and His Little Mermaid. Adults are allowed to have fun too.  

I am currently working on book two of the Heart of a Wolf Series, Softest Touch, and hope to have it out later this year. I also have another story I am working on which is the start of the Panther Pride Saga: Corporate Affair. 

One Lucky Commenter will win an Ebook Set of the 
Heart of a Wolf Series.
