7th Year Anniversary & Huge Giveaway

7 years banner

Forty-nine books, three houses, a trip around North America and more…it’s been a busy seven years!

Wolf Signs cover- winter scene, woman in parka, wolf in backgroundThat’s right — March 24 is the publication anniversary WOLF SIGNS, and I was thinking about how much I’ve got to experience, and how much I’ve enjoyed the journey. I wanted to take the time to celebrate, and hoped you would join me.

Some of you already know I started writing on a whim. A friend wanted to take part in NANOWRIMO, the month-long writing challenge that has been going on for over ten years now. I agreed because it involved Sunday afternoon getaways without kids to a local coffee shop. I’m no dummy—didn’t matter that I had nothing to write. I could work around that small, insignificant detail!

By the end of November 2007 I’d not only completed the 50,000 word requirement, I’d written a 120,000 word epic YA fantasy, and fallen in love with writing.

cowboy coupleI’d also learned about these delightful things called e-books, which for me, often living in more remote locations, were absolutely amazing. I spent *cough cough* more than my book allowance a couple months running as I fell into romance books for the first time in my life, including reading every single werewolf book I could find. I was FASCINATED.

I followed Lauren Dane’s Cascadia Wolves series to Samhain Publishing, and one thing led to another. I wrote a novella, submitted it to an anthology call; the book didn’t get accepted, but ended up selling to another editor at Samhain.

Anne Scott is still my editor. We’ve just completed our thirty-fifth book together.

It’s been a wild ride since March of 2009. I’ve had books with digital first publishers, New York, and self-published. Paranormal and contemporary. Moderate to scorching heat levels.

I’ve had characters who could shift into St. Elmo’s Fire, dolphins, bears, cougars, arctic foxes, wolves, otters and birds of prey—not all at the same time! I’ve written favorite tropes such as in love with my best friend, amnesia, enemies to lovers, older woman/younger man, younger woman/older man, marriage convenience, bad boy/good girl, sexual innocent looking for a wild time, accidental pregnancy, alpha male takes charge, let me tie you up (and other BDSM lite topics), you’re the only one for me, and many more.

I’ve also managed to slip some kind of word play/pun into nearly all of my titles. I’m pretty proud of that. *polishes nails on shirt*.

But what makes me the happiest is how readers have gathered these characters and stories into their hearts. Letters from you are what really make me think back over seven years of being published with a smile on my face.

Some of the neatest ones I can think of are:

  • ­­­How many readers have mentioned WOLF SIGNS or ROCKY MOUNTAIN HEAT were their first ebooks
  • Readers who shared they found my books while sick or on bed rest, and the stories helped pass the time
  • The amazing number of you who tell me the characters seem real to you. I’m not going to argue—they’re real to me, too!
  • Those of you who had never tried paranormal before, but trusted me enough to give my wolfie books a try (Brawhahahah, I’m looking especially at YOU, Lynda!)
  • The women who have written to say they’ve been inspired by a heroine’s courage— these letters are the ones that leave me a weepy mess, and sooooo thankful I get to do what I do.
  • Readers who share their love of happily-ever-afters with their mothers, sisters, friends, daughters, coworkers, husbands…and yes, I have some very faithful male readers, including one who hid their shared Kindle from his wife so he could read the new release first!

But whether you’ve been around since the start of the journey, or you’ve joined in recently, I want you to know I do this for you. I mean, I love telling stories, and I write what entertains me, but at the same time, you are always with me. I try to ensure that when you take time out of your day and pick up a book, whether you’re in the north with the wolfies and bears, or riding the ranch with the Colemans, that you’ll consider the destination satisfying and worthwhile.

Muscular Man flirting with camera, garage in backgroundThank you for making it possible for me to be a writer. I plan to keep bringing you stories where you get to share time with good friends, and watch them reach their happily-ever-afters. May all your ever-afters be amazing ones as well!

Much love. Viv

p.s. Book 50 (!!!!!) is coming April 19. Appropriately, it’s titled A WILD RIDE. Yes, yes it has been!!
