New Book contract!!!

This is NOT the real cover... LOL. I was playing with my photos again...

I am really happy to announce that I landed another book contract with Ellorascave. For years I wrote werewolf stories for fun. I love to write them but to be honest, I had sent in a few and got REJECTED. Ouch. But now that I have wonderful editors who have taught me ALOT I went back to one of my favorite books I had written and totally did an overhaul on it. I cut chapters out, re-wrote them, and pretty much went line by line and gutted a lot of the book to replace it. I think it's a MUCH better book now than it was when I first wrote it. I was really nervous when I sent it in because...you know... REJECTED... on all of my werewolf books I had ever sent in and no, it wasn't Ellorascave who rejected me. LOL ( I'm NOT telling). The first thing I ever sent to Ellorascave was Ral's Woman.

Anyway, I'm really ecstatic that one of my werewolf books is going to come out in the near future. I was so happy I went stock photo shopping and put together the picture above. LOL. Have I mentioned that I'm addicted to playing with photos???

( Just saw a comment left at Facebook so...) Is this a series starter? It could be but right now... no series. I have Zorn Warriors, Cyborg Seduction, and Riding the Raines so my plate is FULL. The lead in this book does have brothers so I might write them but for right now... until the end of this year... my WIP's are all for the three existing series I have. LOL. Of course if Mate Set does well... there won't be any arm twisting needed to write more books about his brothers. I do write fast, I'm a write-a-holic, but I've tried to slow down a bit so yeah... my plan is to write books for Zorn, Cyborgs, and Raines to finish out this year. Keep in mind I already have books coming out at the end of this month and next... plus 2 waiting for edits... a few WIP's that are about ready to submit so my dance card is full for this year. LOL.

Have a great week!


  1. Congratulations! I love those full dance cards. Great editors are worth their weight in gold. "S" is definitely awesome - love her.

  2. Hi Wynter, Thank you and "S" is awesome. So is "P" and worth their weight in gold. LOL. I have 2 editors.

  3. Congrats Laurann!!
    Werewolf books are great, I have 2 on the go at the moment, one for Ellora's cave =)
    How many books can you write??? LOL

  4. Hi Mel,

    This was one I wrote from before I got published and there are 54 of those babies but NO...I'm not going to clean'em up. This was my favorite so it was worth all the work. I can write a lot but I'm trying to slow down... LOL. Can't wait to read a wolf story from you, Mel. I sure love your gargoyles.

  5. 54!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG - you amaze me! (in a good way of course). Looking forward to reading it =)

  6. Hi Mel. Yeah. I wrote for A LOT of years for fun. Like over 15 years...I wrote. So...54 books but some are novellas. Most of them...aren't very good. Trial and error. Some of them have great plots but...man do they need cleaned up. I'm writing all new stuff but I rescued Mate Set from my old files because I just love that book. LOL.

  7. Congrats on the brand spankin' new contract, L!!!

  8. So happy for you, Laura! You rock! And I love playing with photos too...so much fun! :)
