Character Interview with Isaac from Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

Today, I’m interviewing Isaac Adams, and letting him share a little more about himself with you.

 

packoflies01Tell us a little bit about your background.

Yeah, okay. I’m Isaac Adams, and I’m a doctor. I’m from Eyam, in Derbyshire, where I’ve lived all my life. Which is how long, you say? *pauses* oh, okay, you know, do you? Well then, I was born in 1605, so I’ll let you do the maths. I also change into a huge wolf once a month. Besides that, I’m a pretty simple guy.

 

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

That I’m so trusting. Not that trusting people is a bad thing, necessarily, but a lot of things have happened just lately that made me realise that although you think you know a person well enough to trust them, it’s not necessarily true. I’m learning to be more cautious, more guarded.

 

What first attracted you to your love interest?

His eyes. The most amazing green I’ve ever seen. *awkward silence* I have nothing more to say on this subject.

 

What’s the best bit about the book your author wrote about you?

All the parts where I was having a wonderful time.

 

What’s the worst bit about the book your author wrote about you?

All the parts where I wasn’t having a wonderful time.

 

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

Right here, exactly where you left me. Oh, you want more detail? Can’t a guy have his privacy? Apparently not. Well, I’d like to see myself happy. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.

*****

Pack of LiesBlurb:

Werewolf brothers Matthew and Isaac have lived in the peaceful village of Eyam all their lives. The villagers know what happens every full moon, and are happy to keep their secret. But their privacy comes at a cost—neither brother has taken a lover in almost four hundred years.

Then at the full moon, a sheep is slaughtered on Eyam Moor, by what could only be an animal. A large, vicious animal. Even the brothers’ staunchest supporters begin to have their doubts. Meanwhile Isaac is smitten by a handsome newcomer to the village, while a vivacious visitor is happy to offer Matthew her all.

As they indulge their lust, they must clear their names and convince their neighbours that they aren’t also letting their baser instincts out to play.

Inside Scoop:  This book contains sizzling scenes of both M/M and M/F sex.

Character Interview with Matthew from Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

Today, I’m interviewing Matthew Adams, and letting him share a little more about himself with you.

 

Tell us a little bit about your background.

Given I’m over four hundred years old, I’ll have to keep it brief, otherwise we could be here a very long time. I trust this is all in complete confidence, yes? If not, then please ignore the part about my age. Okay, well, as long you’re sure.

My name is Matthew Adams and I’m a werewolf. I was born in 1600, and have lived in Eyam for all of my very long life. I love it, and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I’ve had a variety of jobs, including as a policeman, which I did for a very long time. I’ve also fought in more wars than I care to remember. I’m quite happy now working in the local pub and doing odd jobs in the village—sort of a semi-retirement.

 

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

Don’t tell Isaac I said this, because he’ll laugh and won’t believe me. But I’d probably change my quick temper. It’s silly for someone who’s been around as long as me, but I do anger quite quickly, especially if someone I care about is involved.

 

What first attracted you to your love interest?

I know this is going to sound really shallow, but to start with it was her looks. I first saw her in the local pub and thought she was gorgeous. As soon as I started speaking to her, though, I quickly realised that there was a lot more to her than being pretty.

 

What’s the best bit about the book your author wrote about you?

Would it be really bad if I said my sex scenes? It would? Oh, okay. Well then, I’d have to say the way she’s portrayed the village I’ve lived all my life.

 

What’s the worst bit about the book your author wrote about you?

I can’t really say, because it’ll give away a major part of the plot, and Lucy will throttle me. She may be a lot smaller than me, but she can be scary!

 

Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?

Still living in the village, of course, but hopefully settled down with a wonderful woman and an interesting future to look forward to.

Casting My Characters for Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

packoflies02Hi everyone,

Casting my characters in my own mind isn’t something I always do. As well as novels, I write a lot of short stories and novellas, so it’s not always necessary. Sometimes I don’t spend enough time with characters to build up an image of what they look like—it’s more about what they do.

However, for Pack of Lies, I knew all along it was going to be a book with a large word count, so I needed to keep a good grasp on my characters to make sure I didn’t end up with any inconsistencies. Also, I feel if I have a really good feel for what my characters look like and behave like, then my readers will too, and it’ll hopefully make the story so much more real.

It didn’t take long for me to work out who I’d have playing my sexy werewolf boys if the novel ever got made into a film (ahh, a girl can dream!). The delectable Hugh Jackman would be perfect for Matthew Adams, the older werewolf brother. He’s big, can look menacing, and yet is gorgeous and women would certainly enjoy looking at him.

Taylor Kitsch would be ideal for the younger werewolf brother, Isaac Adams. He’s handsome and has a more playful vibe about him. I’ve since seen him play a gay character in The Normal Heart so that’s just perfect—he can definitely “act” gay, if you see what I mean!

Strangely, I didn’t have an actress in mind for Matthew’s love interest, Sally. Perhaps it’s because I like my male eye candy better!

Isaac’s love interest, Nathaniel, is a character I also cast in my mind. Aussie actor Daniel Feurriegel would play Nathaniel. He played a gay character in Spartacus, so I know he can also “act” gay very successfully, and damn, I think they’d look good together 😉

I haven’t mentally cast any of the more minor characters, so I’ll leave that up to the film studio 😉

My NaNoWriMo Novel – Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

packoflies02Hi everyone,

If you’d have said to me two years ago—maybe even just a year ago—that I would “win” NaNoWriMo, I’d have laughed at you. For those of you that don’t know, NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, is a yearly challenge which takes place in November. Writers sign up via the website and challenge themselves to write 50,000 words in a month—in order words, a novel. Or at least a good chunk of one. They’ll all be hard at it even as you read this post. Sadly, I’m not able to take part this year.

I’m not a fast writer, but then nor am I a slow one. I sit comfortably somewhere in the middle. But for some reason, last year I decided I was going to give NaNoWriMo a go. I’d already done a ton of research for the novel I intended to work on next, all I needed to do was getting the planning done and I’d be ready to go. And so, having worked out that I’d have to write 2,500 per day for twenty days (I don’t work weekends, so I had to remove weekend days from the equation), I figured it was still achievable.

Come the 1st of November I was signed up, had everything planned out and once I opened that Word document, I quickly started to fill it with words. I’m a bit of a word count watcher when I write, anyway, so the only difference was, rather than simply updating the widget in my website’s sidebar, I would also update on the NaNoWriMo website. I started off really well, and was achieving my target each day. Of course, I dropped behind my “buddies” at weekends, but soon caught up again on weekdays.

I have to admit, it was addictive. Granted, I’d already done an awful lot of hard work before opening that Word document, but it didn’t mean the writing was easy, especially as it was the most complex piece of work I’d written to date. But somehow, come the 29th November (the 30th was a Saturday, and so the 29th was my finish date), I did it. I hopped over that 50,000 word mark, copied and pasted the text into the NaNoWriMo site to get it validated, and received my winner’s certificate and badge. It was a fantastic feeling—I’d done it!

However, the novel was far from finished. The challenge had really broken the back of it, but I knew I still had a long way to go. I didn’t stop writing, but I admit from the 50k mark until the end was a lot slower going because I didn’t have that urgency pushing me to write faster. Not to mention during November, I’d rejigged my days to make writing my priority.

Finally, in the New Year of 2014, I finished the book. It was almost twice the length it had been at the end of November—95,000 words. So personally, I still think I did pretty damn well to write it in that period of time, and I’m delighted to see it out there for people to read and hopefully enjoy.

The Research (Part Two) for Pack of Lies (@cw1985) #werewolf #paranormal #erotic #romance

packoflies02Hi everyone,

Wow, I can hardly believe that I did so much research for a book that it warrants more than one blog post. But this one did—it’s a 96,000 word thriller with historical elements, sex, romance and werewolves. And the werewolves, as the main characters, had to be paid very close attention to—for example, where would they change on the full moon?

The answer to this question explains why, last September, I found myself wearing a hard hat and clambering down into an old cave and mine system. Not by myself, I hasten to add, but with a very nice local gentleman, who generously gave up a few hours of his Sunday to take me and my other half down (who was also very generous with his time and patience as I dragged us off into the Peak District in the name of research!) into the cave system so I could see if it was feasible for two grown men to go down there and change into werewolves on a full moon.

Fortunately, after much banging of heads on low ceilings (thank goodness for the hard hats!) and crawling about in dark and narrow passages, I discovered it was indeed, feasible. Granted, it’s a fictional novel so it would have been okay to make it up, or stretch the truth, but I’m nothing if not a perfectionist. So imagine my relief when, having finally reached a cavern where I could stand up straight, I discovered that two large werewolves could indeed, prowl around in the darkness. Even better, the lack of space in the passages we’d entered through was such that, in werewolf form, they wouldn’t be able to get back out. Not until they’d changed back into human form. I can’t say why this is important without giving away some of the plot, so you’ll just have to read it and see!

Check out the photos on my Pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/cw1985/pack-of-lies/

The book has been incredibly well received so far, with lots of four and five star reviews—so if you’re a paranormal romance fan, I hope you’ll check it out!

Fright Night Blog Hop #thriller #romance #erotica #gay #mm #werewolf #shifter

frightnightJoin us for a little Halloween fun in the Fright Night blog hop! Stop by each blog to check out their favourite paranormal or spooky reads and enter their giveaways!

To really whet your appetite for all things spooky, here’s a snippet from my paranormal romance thriller, Pack of Lies. Werewolves, anyone? It’s over 96,000 (plus novel) words of lies, deception and intrigue… a book you can really get your teeth into this Halloween 😉

*****

Then all they could do was wait. They had the power to initiate the change earlier, but there was no point. It was easier to wait until the moon forced them to, making the entire transition faster and much less painful.

“Okay,” Matthew said, after what felt like forever. “Here we go. See you on the other side, brother.”

Isaac nodded, and after a beat an invisible force made them drop simultaneously to the ground, their hands and knees crashing onto the unforgiving rock floor. But that was the least of their worries. Small fry compared to the agony they experienced as their bones began realigning, their muscles and tendons stretching, popping, tearing, skin stretching and sprouting hair.

Matthew wished, and not for the first time, that their human consciousness was not involved in the change. Because everything they felt, experienced as they morphed from man to wolf, was imprinted into their memories forever, and of course made them dread each and every time they changed. The pain and discomfort never got any less. The only saving grace was that the process had grown quicker over the centuries, so their agony was that much briefer.

Before long Matthew was aware he was no longer a man. He looked over at his brother, now totally unrecognizable as the tall, handsome doctor he’d been just a few minutes ago. Glancing down at his own huge, hairy paws with their long, scary-looking claws, Matthew remembered the other side of the argument. Yes, they had to endure and remember the pain they went through as they transformed, but as that consciousness remained throughout, it meant they knew exactly what they did when they were wolves and could control themselves.

Not that there was anything to control down in the caves. There was no temptation of any kind, unless you liked the taste of bats, spiders or insects. Both brothers had tried bats before, catching the darting winged creatures in strong, long-toothed jaws for entertainment value, but they’d agreed the next day that they weren’t worth the bother. They were so small and irrelevant to their huge wolves that they took more energy to catch than they provided.

And so, once they’d gone through the transformation, a night in the Stoney Middleton caves proved pretty dull. It was a means to an end, a way to let their wolves roam free without endangering anyone or risking the exposure of their secret. It was certainly better than being locked in cages. They loped around the areas of the cavern that were large enough and occasionally crawled along some of the side passages just for something to do. Neither of them found it easy to sleep in wolf form, as there was so much raw energy, so much adrenaline coursing through their veins. In a way, changing on Eyam Moor had been better because there had been room to run around, burn off some of that energy. But that wasn’t an option—especially not now.

Though they’d said they weren’t going to head deeper into the cave system, Matthew turned tail—literally—and headed across the Oyster Cavern and into Eyam Passage. He was bored, and they’d already been down there for hours—if he didn’t do something, he was going to go crazy. Continuing through foot after foot of dark, damp tunnel, he passed a turn off on the left that he knew was a dead end. He was roughly underneath the electricity substation by the side of the Eyam road by now, and he kept going. Now he was beneath the road, now the woods on the other side of it.

There was an old mine shaft that opened up in Eyam Dale, and he made for it. He had no intention of attempting to get out of it—it would be impossible in any case, even more difficult than trying to get back out of the Gin entrance in his wolf form. All he wanted was a change of scenery, an excuse to stretch his legs and something to occupy his mind.

Just then he got it. A loud scuffle from above, the sound of rocks clattering against one another, against the ground, and some swearing. A man’s voice. Christ, Tom and his gang hadn’t seriously decided to come and check on them after all, had they?

*****

Still not convinced? The book has over fifteen four and five star reviews… this isn’t your traditional romance 🙂
