Well, this is taking a bit longer than I anticipated..
When I first created “The Angel Falls Library Files”, I intended them to be a series of shorts, no longer than ten to fifteen thousand words long. The first four books fit that format rather nicely.
Book five is about to blow that concept right out of the water.
After taking an atrociously long break, I was eager to get back into this story writing thing full force. Not only did I have ideas festering around in my head collecting cobwebs that were anxious to see daylight, I also had new inspiration, and a new partner. I fully intended to have this story done and out by now. I’m so eager to release it that I’m chomping at the bit. But, as with many of my stories, at times it just seems to write itself once I get started. There are nuances and details that refuse to be left out. “Seduction of the Shrew”, as the title implies, is a seduction story. And as such, focuses a bit more on seduction rather than actual sex. (Okay, maybe a lot more in this case.) This story presents an even greater challenge, as it all takes place within a week’s time or so, which is a rather short time for a seduction to culminate to ‘climax’, so to speak, especially when it involves a character who’s stodgy demeanor almost borders on frigidity. Yes, I realize this is fiction, but if there isn’t at least some sense of ‘realism’ behind the fantasy, then what’s the point? It would just end up sounding like some quick little ‘smut’ story written by some horny kid in junior high that can no doubt be found by the thousands on Amazon.
And who really needs more of that? 😉
Not that there isn’t some really hot sex in this story! Believe me, there is. But the “hot sex” is really dependent on the nuances and details of the seduction leading up to it. Book five will no doubt be the longest story in the Angel Falls series to date. Actually, it already is. It may even meet or surpass my full-length stories in word count. But, when a story takes on a life of its own, all you can do is sit back and let it lead, and release it when it’s ready to be released. This story takes place around the holidays. It’s possible it may be the holidays of this year before it’s finally ready to fly.
Hopefully readers of the series will find it worth the wait. I know there are a few out there that are just as anxious to read it as I am to release it. Especially after such a long absence. In the meantime, I have released a handful of excerpts from “Seduction of the Shrew” on my Tumblr blog just to give folks a little ‘taste’. I don’t know if that’s more cruel than kind.. LOL!.. but, you do know how I like to tease. 😉
