Summer Bash: BONUS

Bet you all thought the summer bash was over.:-) Well I have a single bonus for you. As the final gasp of summer hits, my dear friend Kay Dee Royal has stopped by to help us all say goodbye to it. Hi Kay Dee. Glad to have you.



Hi everyone;) Hello Kat, *hugs* thank you so much for having me today and allowing me to vent a little about one of my story-stars in Savage Smoke. Well, he was also in Staring Into the Eyes of Chance as that is book 1 in my Lycan International Investigation Series.
Smoke is a culprit, the villain, the notorious, dangerous rogue of all rogues. A fall off a cliff left him with an open sunken cheek (shows a few of his teeth) and a milky blind eye. It definitely gives the impression he’s a bad-ass, even though on the short side in stature (runt of the litter), his wild appearance and muscularly buff bod keeps larger opponents at bay.
He comes from a paranormal dysfunctional family…or so it is to him. Smoke isn’t his real name, but it works for him since his brother, Chance, the Alpha leader of the LIIA headquarters in Upper Michigan, constantly tracks him and his rogue pack.
Smoke plans a major take-over. He’s had his fill of the Elders creating rules and over-seeing who lives and who dies. It’s time for a new league of justice or injustice…and he’ll do anything to get what he wants. Even if it means kidnapping, impregnating, slaughtering, drugging, or anything else required in making it happen.
I had him dead to rights…seriously, dying in book 2 (Savage Smoke). I played hell writing the last chapters because his lights were out for good…but, he kept kicking and yelling, insisting he should get the chance of redemption, AND he demanded something else, too. Something he never had before…and it was his due to claim it.
Well, after much deliberation and rewrites…and suckin’ it up–he lives. Got his dang wish come true, too…but you’ll have to read it to find out what that part of the equation isJ *Big deep sigh*
Yes, so Smoke lives on for book 3, Smoke ‘n Bliss. Do you think it’s possible for the worst of the worst to redeem himself?

Kay Dee Royal said...

Hi Kat - big hugs!!! Thanks so much for giving me this nice opportunity to blast out the last of summer;)

I love the wonderful serenity of your place:)

Hi Victoria...yes, Smoke wouldn't give me a break...had the scene written where he takes his dive into death...and instead he want to run off and figure out how to play nice. Geesh!! He's too far gone for that, tried to tell him, but he wants his big chance at happiness...so, he finally gave me my pen back after some negotiation;)

Your writing is so vibrant and alive. Love you, Kay Dee. Uh, does your husband know he's caged? Did anyone ever tell you I have a big mouth???

Hi S...big, big hugs!! Thank you for stopping in and checking out Kat's place and my villain, Smoke...although, I know you have a good awareness of him as you are one of my most inspiring, motivational, and encouraging friends (who I will be on a writing retreat with soon;)

Hi Jolie...Smoke is an interesting, intriguing Alpha...who has crossed the lines and still thinks he has a chance at righting what he's wronged...When a villain gets to a certain point...well, his past eventually catches up - you know:) Thanks so much for stopping in to check him out;)

Kat - xoxoxo...thanks so much for allowing me to hang out, trash talk Smoke, and eat all of your goodies *grins*
