You shouldn't grant me absolution before you haven't read the cliffhanger ending of book four ... it's getting worse ...

The thing is: I don't need to be liked ;-) We will cover that topic in the Xmas scene of book 4.

Mmmh ... Equinae ... are you a Colt in disguise?

Or are you suggesting you would be a good Beta reader? ;-)

Am I a Colt? Well, let's just say I like effective methods! :P

I find it fascinating that it's possible to capture the idea of a wolf with just a few lines. They really do have a very strong presence.

 

I just hope that the image being more of an image of the idea of a wolf doesn't mean too many actual wolves bite the dust...

As promised, here are the first lines of MetaBattles, book 4 of the MetaWolf series.

 

The full chapter will post May 16.

CHAPTER 1

 

Colt would have never thought that one day he would sit handcuffed on the ground in the middle of nowhere waiting for some vampires to pick him up like a stray dog in the shelter.

He looked anxiously at the wolf standing a bit aside talking agitatedly on his radio, as cell phone reception didn’t exist out here.

Not only was he handcuffed, he was cuffed with his own silver handcuffs normally used as punishment cuffs for wolves. They didn’t hurt him as they did wolves, but they did the more traditional job of immobilizing him pretty well.

To watch the wolf handle Colt’s silver revolver he had used to shoot Prime as if it was some toy in his hands added insults to his pain.

How could they have been so wrong about this? How could this week in which he had already shot Prime get even worse? He should have stayed with going through the books of the pack’s companies this morning instead of trying to play alpha wolf.

 

“Come in,” Colt shouted barely looking up from his laptop, frantically typing numbers into his bookkeeping program. Only when he heard somebody clearing his throat, he realized somebody had actually followed his invitation and entered the room. “’d morning, Sam, … or shall I call you ‘Gamma?’”

Sam Sr. smiled a bit cringingly because of his new title, but just said: “Sam’s fine. I’m here to pick you up.”

“Pick me up?”

How 'many' is 'many?'

The books are already written (just 4k words to finish MW6). So making me rewrite them will require much more than being asked nicely ;-) The price we can negotiate 'in a private conversation.' :ph34r:

I've read the updates, liked and reviewed (including wild theories)... What now? I will be waiting impatiently for the next book. May 16 seems like an eternity... Ha, ha!

 

Since I don't know what the books contain at present, it's very difficult to estimate a reasonable price for any changes. A very poor starting point for negotiation.

I love it when my negotiation partners have a disadvantage ... makes life so much easier ... ;-)

You got to know when to hold 'em

Know when to fold 'em

Know when to walk away

Know when to run

 

That's kind of my motto! So guess what I'm doing...?

Aaah... It would be nice to be folded... I'm a bit too hung over, though.

Mmmh, men with long hair and make-up ... reminds me of this (and I'm sure the pack would agree):

It was the 80s! I'm sure at least one wolf would have had a longhaired phase if they had been teens then. Make up... Maybe not.

I'm seriously screwed (up) ... I found the barber buzzing video 'stimulating' ... and it inspired a prompt idea.

You are hardly alone in that. There are a surprising amount of stories (and other stuff) on that particular theme. And you being into control might be the worst kept secret ever...

Pfffh, and I had already started to fear my true dark sides had been exposed. <lol>

And the prompt 417 titled 'Hair' is with my dear editor. Please use protection  .... for your keyboard.

Not that anyone needed reminding, but I was simply popping by to say: YAY! It's MetaBattles Eve! Seems though I've stumbled upon a totally different cause for excitement. By all means then, prompt 417....

      Has anyone come across the story deviant magic?

      I see that this wonderful story hasn't received a thread yet. Let the discussion begin.
       
      We keep talking about the fact that Declan is eventually going to figure out what Bailey's been doing, but its interesting to note that he's had a few opportunities to ask about it now, and he's chosen not to. I think that Declan already knows what's going on, and he doesn't want to make it more real by talking about it. It's not in his normal character, but I think we've seen that when Bailey's involved that Declan doesn't act in ways he normally acts.

      If you like hysterical, oh, I mean historical romances then you might like something I've been writing. I started writing it last year but got bogged down in too many other things and wanted to finish The Seashell first. With that book finished I was able to add Souvenir back into my writing rotation. 
       
      The story is a first person narrative in a diary style similar to Brandon Smiling and that's done purposefully. If you follow Brandon then you might enjoy Souvenir all the more for reasons you might catch as you read this memoir of Lord Cedrick Temple, Duke of Buckingham.
       
      I've tried to write this as a period piece with the time period covered being just before and during World War I in England. The language may be a little challenging, but hopefully enjoyable. It's a challenge to write but fun too.
       
      So, without any further adieu I bring you:
