When A Series Became A Serial Saga…

NOTE: THIS WAS RELEASE NEWS ON THE ARE CAFE FOR A SUMMONER’S TALE.

Please welcome romance author Victoria Danann to the Cafe!

I fell in love with paranormal romance after reading Kresley Cole’s A Hunger Like No Other. I’d been a fan of paranormal for most of my life and had read everything by Anne Rice and Stephen King, among others, but found that adding the element of romance is like putting the ice cream in the cone. I began to see that I could write romance using paranormal elements to mold male characters into the stuff of fantasy – what men should be.

I spent two years reading every PNR that had enjoyed any success at all so that I would know what had already been done. Armed with that information, I set out to write a series unlike anything that had been done before. All went well. The first book flowed almost like it was being channeled. I took care with the world building and the finished result was lengthy (475 pages), but I was satisfied that it fulfilled my vision and perhaps exceeded it.

The book, My Familiar Stranger, was so well-received that I’m still humming with the vibration. It was nominated for Best Paranormal Romance of 2012 by the Reviewers’ Choice Awards and has broken all kinds of records for the first work of an unknown author.

This note, however, is about what happened when it was time to begin Book Two. Put simply, I had fallen in love with the characters from the first book and wasn’t ready to let them go. There was more story to tell. I knew from feedback that readers felt the same way. So Book Two, The Witch’s Dream, picked up where Book One ended.

I knew that creating a series that is also a serial saga was going to be a lot more trouble than a collection of books that are loosely related, but I decided it was going to be worth the risk. The third installment, A Summoner’s Tale, was just released. If you have not read any of the books, it will be a real treat for you to read the story as it was meant to be told, from Book One through Three without interruption.
