You Need More Alphas In Your Life!

STORMFBADVVVVbook

 

Those eyes, though!!

*drools*

So, I got to thinking the other day and realised two things –

  1. We can never have too many alphas on our E-readers. Right?!
  2. Christmas is a time of giving and as women we rarely give to ourselves.

And so I decided that you probably didn't give yourself a Christmas present, which led me to also deciding your Kindle might be in need of an alpha injection 😉

AND that's when I whipped up a giveaway for a $20 Amazon gift card… the link to enter is at the end of this post. Good luck!!

Speaking of alphas… Scott Cole – have you met him yet? He's one of my Storm men and it has to be said, my favourite. I often get asked how I come up with my characters and so I figured I'd share some fun facts about Scott Cole –

  1. His book almost never made it to publication. I struggled with Fierce, unsure of whether readers would connect with Scott as much as they seemed to love J. And then, the night before I was due to publish the book, my friend told me she disliked Scott. I went into panic mode, wishing she had told me this earlier than the NIGHT BEFORE PUBLISHING! I was frozen with the decision of what to do. If she hated him, would my readers hate him too? And then I asked her the one question that gave me hope. “Did you like J?” I asked. She told me she didn't like him either and so I figured if she hated J but my readers loved him, then hopefully they would also go against her assessment of Scott. Thank God I ran with my gut and my own love for him because Scott Cole is possibly the favourite Storm man of most of my readers (well, besides those who hold an undying obsession with J!).
  2. Scott Cole is a mix of all the good men in my life with a side of bossy thrown in. Scott came across as a moody asshole in Storm, but I knew he was better than that and as I wrote Fierce and he revealed himself to me, I realised he was made up from pieces of some of the men in my life. I tried to build his character from scratch, but that didn't work. In the end, I simply began typing and let him fall onto the page. He would have to be one of my favourite characters to write because he's completely in control – of himself, his woman (well actually that's debatable!), his club – everything. I love writing a character who just follows his instincts, takes charge and gets shit done. I have to say, though, that I also love writing a woman for that man such as Harlow who gives as good as she gets! The banter between these two makes me smile huge while writing.
  3. My favourite Storm books are Command and Fierce. I guess that means he really is my favourite 😉 He got a little sappy on me in Command, but even while I was writing those scenes they felt right. When Scott Cole loves, he loves hard! And he doesn't care who knows it or how he shows it.

 

If you have any questions for me about my characters, books, writing etc, keep them in mind because I am going to start a weekly Q&A post and I'll be asking you soon to start submitting your questions.

  4. Joanne Dearman says:

    Luv the Storm men. Do u have a new series in mind for after Storm. Not that I can even contemplate life after. Lol

    • authorninalevine says:

      Hi Joanne!
      Thank you so much <3 I do have a series planned! Do you remember Serena from Storm (Madison's best friend)? She will get a book with a man named Zane (at the risk of confusing you here, if you have read any of the Roxie chapters, her dude, Liam, works for Zane so it's like a crossover type series – lots of intersecting of characters coming up!). Actually, you've just given me a great idea for a blog post so check back and look for it – I will write up my plans to connect all my series 🙂 xx

  5. Joanne Dearman says:

    • authorninalevine says:

      Hi Jodie, I recommend you start with either Storm (if you love bikers) or All Your Reasons (if you love rockstars). Both are free and the links are on my site 🙂 xx

  19. JeanMP says:

    Enjoy your books, a must buy for me.

  20. Margaret says:

    Hi, I remember reading j and Madison and thinking it was an ok story and yep I’d buy another of your books. That was then and this is now, your writing gets stronger and stronger with each character and I love all of your books. I’ve just finished command and was drawn into all of the characters again. You are the writer that I stop doing all my housework for, daydream about your characters when I’m at work and lose myself completely. Please don’t stop not only with storm but all of them. Thank you so much for all of your stories x

  21. Nancy Huddleston says:

    I’m loving your new look. Congratulations!

  22. Peggy Davidson says:
