THIRDS Thursday Author Q&A

Hello, all! I received so many fantastic questions in last week's THIRDS Thursday prompt submission/giveaway that I've had to split them in two. I'll see about getting the rest of them posted really soon. Here's the first half. Thank you so much to everyone who left such fantastic comments and amazing prompts! You all are awesome!

2016Divider

Q: Is Seb & Hudson book’s release date going to be pushed back because of Thick & Thin?

A: Nope! Seb and Hudson’s release day remains the same. I just had Thick & Thin submitted and scheduled for release before Seb & Hudson’s book was finished and submitted.

Q: When will we get release dates?

A: Unfortunately, I don’t get release dates until much closer to the time due to the production process, in case something happens to delay things. Usually I have a rough estimate of which month books will be released once the books are contracted, but that's an estimate and things can change. Since my publisher is currently reviewing Seb and Hudson’s book, I don’t have an official estimate yet, but I'll be sure to update the info here and on the THIRDS website and soon as I know more.

Q: Also, has Seb and Hudson’s book got a name yet?

A: Yes, it’s called Darkest Hour Before Dawn.

Q: *** Spoiler for Smoke & Mirrors *** Will Dex tell his Dad/team about how he has different DNA now?

A: In Thick & Thin, it’s time for Dex and Sloane to face their family, including the DD team, about the changes happening to Dex, their roles in the team, and their relationship. It’s not going to be easy, but then nothing with Destructive Delta ever is.

Q: With the spinoff with Dex & Sloane playing with TIN how many books will be in that series? Is this where Austen & Zach get their story?

A: There’s no set number of books yet decided for the TIN series, because although they’ll be numbered, I intend to write each one so it can be read on its own. The books won't have an overall story arc the way the main THIRDS series has, but be more like individual missions. Readers will be able to come in at any point in the TIN series and pick up any of the books without being lost. However, Dex and Sloane's relationship will continue to grow through the TIN series. Anything important from one book that might need to be brought up in another (in regards to something that happens between Dex and Sloane, their family, and Destructive Delta) will be briefly clarified so readers aren't lost if they haven't read that particular book.

Although Austen will be in the TIN series, he and Zach will be getting their own book which is why we haven't had any THIRDS Thursdays written with them together because right now, Austen is keeping his distance. Or at least trying to. Their book is on my writing schedule to be written after the second TIN book.

Q: There seems to be a lot of male Therians but not very many female Therians. Is that just due to who the books focus on or is there something about Therian DNA that ups the chance of male offspring?

A: That has more to do with the focus of the books and who that couple has in their circle. There are as many female Therians as there are male Therians, though we do have slightly more male Therian agents in Unit Alpha’s Defense department. We have more female Therians in Intel and Recon. We will however be seeing more female Therians in the TIN series as many of them are operatives.

Q: How long have you been working on Thirds, like before actual publication of the first book?

A: I was working on the THIRDS almost two years before I started writing Hell & High Water, and that took about seven months to release and I was working on the rest of the series during that time.

Q: My question is will we get any babies?

A: I won’t say never, because we don’t know, but in an official THIRDS/TIN book, probably not. The weird thing is, I can see Ash becoming a dad before Sloane. The thing is that if Dex and Sloane were to become parents, it would mean their retirement. Sloane would never have a child and be involved in the THIRDS or something as risky as TIN. The risk of something happening to him and/or Dex is much higher, and after the way Dex lost his parents, and how Sloane grew up without parents, I think he would be very set against doing anything that might leave his child or children without him and/or Dex. Sloane’s been out in the field a long time, and been through so much, I don’t see him doing it for many more years, and I think at some point Dex will feel it's time for him to step back and focus on family. I think they'll want to retire and enjoy their lives together. We’ll have to see what happens.

Q: Are we going to see more of “Wolf” and will he be getting a book?

A: We’re going to be seeing much more of Wolf from Seb and Hudson’s book onward for several reasons--much to Dex's annoyance. He may possibly be getting his own book. I’m certain he’ll be appearing in some THIRDS Thursday prompts from book 9 onward too.

ABOUT THE BOOK

One moment, Riley Murrough is living a normal life working in a coffee shop, and the next, he’s running for his life from demons, learns he bears the mark of a shape-shifter king from a magical realm, and—worst of all—he’s destined to become the mated prince to the arrogant tiger-shifter he would rather strangle.

Khalon, the shifter king, is equally distraught at the idea of being bound to a human prince, and along with his Soldati warriors, he sets out to return Riley to his own world, where he belongs. On their journey, they might discover why the goddess brought them together—if they can escape the demons and make it to her alive.

THIRDS Thursday - 10/20/16 Ask Charlie, Halloween Prompts, plus a Giveaway!

THIRDS Thursdays

Hello, THIRDS Nerds! Last night I finally submitted Seb and Hudson's book, woot! I know, it's been a long time coming, but these guys put me through the ringer. I know how much you guys have wanted to read their story, and I won't lie, the higher the expectation, the more daunting the task, but I hope I did these fellas justice. Unlike the other guys in the THIRDS who have either gone from being friends to falling in love, or enemies to falling in love, Seb and Hudson are already in love. But love alone is not enough to repair what's broken. Throw in some nasty buggers, a few surprises, and a lot of emotion, and we get a story about second chanced and new beginnings.

For today's THIRDS Thursday, I thought it would be fun to take some questions. Depending on how many we get, I might have to save a few for later, but if you have a question you'd like to ask me about the THIRDS, any of the books, the characters, etc, I'll do my best to answer without spoilers. If there are spoilers I'll be sure to tag it so you know. Leave your questions below, and I'll post them here next Thursday along with that week's THIRDS Thursday. If you don't have a question to ask but would like to leave a Halloween prompt for next week's THIRDS Thursday, you can do that instead. Or do both!

For the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment. I'm giving away this fabulous Journey tote bag with some THIRDS and Hudson inspired goodies. Giveaway ends Nov 3rd at 11:59 pm Eastern US time. Winning prompt will be picked Monday, Oct 24th at 9 am Eastern US time.

#TeaserTuesday - 10/18/16 Thick & Thin, THIRDS Book 8

TeaserTuesday

Hello, all! This week’s #TeaserTuesday brings us an excerpt from Thick & Thin, THIRDS Book 8 which is due for release in February. I know you're thinking, hold on a bleeding minute! I thought Seb and Hudson's book was book 8? What kinda gummy bears has Charlie been snacking on? Tasty ones. Actually, after a chat with my publisher, we decided it made more sense to number Thick & Thin book 8 despite it being a novella. The reason for this is because it follows the series timeline just like the other books, and the plot ties into the next book: Seb and Hudson's book (now book 9).

If we didn't make Thick & Thin book 8 then there was a chance it would get lost in the retailer shuffle, and readers might miss this important little novella. Keeping all the main series books numbered and in order will mean no one misses any important plot points or story. So nothing has changed in the schedule, the book numbers have just shifted because Dex is a diva and we all know what happens when he doesn't get his way. We're lucky the books aren't named after gummy bear flavors.

Dex smiled at his dad as he made his way over to the bed. He took a seat in the armchair beside it. “Listen, Dad. I know you want to be cool like the rest of Destructive Delta, but this wasn’t necessary.”

“So getting shot isn’t a prerequisite for your team?” Tony frowned. “Damn, must have missed the memo. Also, I was the king of cool when you kids were in diapers.”

“I’m going to have to disagree with you. Ash was never a baby. He was spawned grown and grumpy. Also, we’re going to have a discussion of your definition of cool, because your wardrobe choices in the eighties tells me your view on the topic might be a little skewed.”

Tony chuckled, and Dex’s chest tightened. He looked down at his hands. “Let’s not do this again, okay?”

“Come ’ere.” Tony held out his arms, and Dex stood and moved over to sit on the edge of the Therian-sized bed, then leaned in to hug his dad, his head coming to rest on Tony’s shoulder.

Dex shut his eyes tight, refusing to think about what could have been. Every day his team dealt with the possibility of losing someone they cared about. He couldn’t go down that path.

“You two are such dorks.”

Dex chuckled. With a sniff, he wiped away a rogue tear before sitting up. He let out a laugh at his brother’s bedhead. “The only dork here is the one I’m looking at. Nice do. Didn’t know you joined A Flock of Seagulls.”

Cael touched his hair and groaned, then ran his fingers through it. “They’re releasing Dad in a couple of days.”

“I don’t know why they can’t release me today,” Tony grumbled. “I’m fine.”

“I know, right?” Dex held back a smile. “I mean, I don’t understand how that bullet just didn’t bounce off you, what with you being indestructible and all.”

Tony huffed. “Smartass.”

“I think the doctor just wants to keep him here so he can flirt with Dad some more.” Cael wriggled his eyebrows, and Dex gasped. His lips curled into a wicked grin.

“Is that so?” Dex turned his attention to his dad. “Is he cute?”

Tony refused to answer, so Cael answered for him. “He’s a tiger Therian. I have dubbed him Dr. Scotty the Hotty. He’s Scottish, by the way. His hair is amazing.”

“Ooh. A sexy ginge.” Dex put his hand out and received a high-five from his brother. “Nice one, Chirpy.” He winked at his dad. “Bet he looks great in a kilt. And he’s a doctor. Wow. That’s a nice profession, isn’t it? Helping people, healing them.” He paused and held his dad’s gaze. “Bet he’s the real honest type too.”

Tony barely blinked, his gaze never wavering. Clearly he hadn’t told Cael about Sparks. “Bet he is,” Tony said pleasantly. “Speaking of secrets. There something you wanna tell us?”

Touché, Father Mine. Dex nodded. “You’re right. There is.”

Cael gasped. “You’re pregnant.”

Dex arched an eyebrow at him. “Really?”

“Sorry,” Cael said with a laugh. “I’m running on chocolate bars.”

Tony laced his fingers over his stomach, his lips pursed. “Your brother’s going to tell us how he singlehandedly killed the asshole who shot me.”
