10 Things You Should Know About Writing A Historical Romance

It was a rare treat to be approached by Female First an online magazine to provide a feature and to enable me to promote “Dragoon Serenade”

I had been asked to provide only ten things about writing a Historical Romance.

In truth, there are a lot more topics one could draw on to make the story as real as possible. For now, these were the ten that I deemed essential. You can read them on the following link:

I hope you’ll enjoy the article.

Promotions for “Dragoon Serenade”

As a lead up to the release of my latest novella in the Romance in War series I have been experimenting with some promotions through Facebook.

I’m not too sure how it works, but if all the ‘views’ represent people who have viewed the advert then it is hoped they will be impressed enough to buy a copy of the e-book “Dragoon Serenade”

The promo is of course backed up with a book trailer created for me by Luminosity Publishing which can be viewed on YouTube at:

I hope you’ll enjoy the trailer… but I also hope you’ll buy the book.

“Dragoon Serenade” to be published

It would seem that the revisions I had completed for book 2 in my Romance in War series “Dragoon Serenade” have paid off. Although I had wanted to keep this series as “sweet” romances, where sex remained behind closed doors, it has proved to be no longer a viable option.

Since the revisions I recently carried out, the story was sensual enough to be offered to Luminosity Publishing. This is the comments I received along with their offer of a contract for the story:

I loved the plot in this story. It held my interest, and I read the whole book in one session. The writing is very good. I am sure readers will love it as much as me.

Luminosity Publishing have set a projected a release date of October 2017 for the e-book.

They will combine Books 1 and 2 into a paperback version to be released hopefully by November 2017.

Also as Dawné Dominique has created such fantastic covers for “The Sword and the Rose” series Luminosity has agreed for me to approach Dusktildawn Designs to create a cover.

Needlesstosay, I am over the moon that this latest story is soon to be released.

Best wishes

A New Book by Jennifer Denys

Title of book: To Claim a Mate

Author: Jennifer Denys

Publisher: Luminosity Publishing

Genre: Contemporary, Wolf shifter, gay, BDSM

Type: Novella (21,600 words)

Sexual orientation: MM

Blurb:

Cole Linley is a gay wolf-shifter. In order to appease the Alpha within, he has taken up the BDSM lifestyle and become very experienced. This placates his wolf to a certain extent, but his dearest wish is to find a mate—male, of course. Except, the question is, how to find one in a city surrounded by humans where other wolf-shifters are rare.

Then, one night, he enters Balls & Chains, a BDSM club he frequents, and immediately senses another of his kind. And not only that, it is the scent of a potential mate, Jared Gray. There is only one problem—Jared is collared by another Master.

Jared’s relationship shows all the signs of an abusive relationship. Can Cole get him away from the other Dom and show Jared the delights of BDSM when done properly and what it means to be a beta wolf to Cole’s Alpha?

Reader Advisory: The submissive in this Gay Paranormal Romance doesn’t realize he is in an abusive relationship until he meets his true Master.

What’s hot?: Making love in the forest as wolves, then in the bed as humans.

 Excerpt:

 Moving on, Cole was drawn into a room which had a cross in each corner of the room with plenty of space to wield the equipment. The walls were covered with floggers of varying types, although nothing stopped a Dominant using an implement from another section.

Cole halted. He’s here.

The scent was at its strongest, practically dragging him toward a slender man in his late twenties, with brown hair the color of hazelnuts. The sub was in the process of being tied face up against a cross on the far side. His chest was bare and sleek, and he wore skin-tight jeans.

The Dom wanted to rip the man’s clothes off and devour him on the spot. So intent was he on reaching his prey, he nearly missed the Master who had finished tying the submissive and came around to inspect the restraints, standing directly between Cole and the object of his hunt.

Stopping in his tracks, Cole’s hackles began to rise. A possessive instinct rose in him to fight off his rival. Except there were rules in BDSM and it didn’t include tearing out the throat of another Master.

Andy caught up with him and saw him staring. “Who have you found? Oh, this is Master Dirk. Jared is the sub he is playing with.”

Cole took a moment to calm his inner wolf, unclenching his fists before he triggered his claws. His voice was raspy as he asked, “Are they new? I don’t recall seeing either of them here before.” Actually, he couldn’t care less about this new Master. He only had eyes for Jared.

He didn’t hear Andy’s answer, because, at that moment, he caught the gaze of the bound man. Tangible electricity crossed the room and hit Cole like a silver bullet, slamming into his heart, nearly causing him to change into his wolf in front of everyone. It took everything he knew about Dominance to keep hold of his human side and push down his animal half.

Meanwhile, the submissive’s eyes opened wide in shock, and he bit his lip. Cole’s keen wolf eyesight could detect Jared’s fierce trembling, as he tightly gripped the ropes that held him. Cole willed him to hold on and not transform in front of everyone as the two shared a look of instant attraction, desperate need, and the desire to have sex.

And yet it was more than that. So much more—an inner knowledge, assurance one has finally found one’s other half, and didn’t even know one was looking.

Taking a deep breath, Cole narrowed his eyes as he gazed on Jared, drinking in the beautiful sight before him.

He gave a slight smile of acknowledgment.

Oh yes, this is my mate. And woe betide anyone who comes between us.

Introducing Sensual Liaisons: The Sword and the Rose Collection

sensual-liaisons

Cover Art by Dusktildawn Designs and Luminosity Publishing

Original Artwork is the Copyright of Dawné Dominique

I’m pleased to introduce Sensual Liaisons: The Sword and the Rose Collection which is to be a paperback consisting of books 2, 3, and 4 of The Sword and the Rose Series.

So that these three great e-books can be available in print, Luminosity Publishing has incorporated them into a paperback.

The book is due for release on 15th April 2017 and can be purchased through the usual distributor channels such as Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Luminosity Publishing’s own website.

Although there had been plans for three more books in the series it was decided that it was time to end the Spanish 17th century saga after book 4.

 

I will now concentrate on my “Romance in War” series comprising of different stories set during World War II.

Book 1 – Letter from a Stranger is set in London during the Blitz was published by Luminosity Publishing in June 2015 and is available on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble.

Book 2 – Dragoon Serenade is set in the south of France during the three weeks leading up to the Allied invasion of Operation Dragoon on 15th August 1944. Although this book is completed it is currently awaiting publication.

Book 3 – Balor’s Landing is set on the tiny island of Toraigh [Tory] off the Irish coast of county Donegal starting in September 1944. This book is my current work in progress, with four more books planned after this one.

In addition I am considering starting other adventures with new characters set during the 18th century but at this stage I won’t give anything away as to where and when those characters will emerge.

Regards

Louise

Lady of Seville – Three Year Worldwide Publishing Contract Signed

What a great way to start 2017…

I have today signed a three-year worldwide publishing contract with Luminosity Publishing for Book 4 in the Sword and the Rose Series – Lady of Seville.

The projected release date is set for March 2017.

The book will be released in a paperback version the following month in conjunction with books 2 and 3 of the series.

I had planned at least three more books in this series over the next two years, but I have since decided to defer these for some time in the future.

Although I will miss the characters I have grown to love, I feel the time has come to leave them alone for a while and move on to another time and location in history.

Meanwhile though I am ecstatic that Luminosity Publishing has confidence in me and my writings, and I look forward to our continuing association.

Finally, I would like to thank Dawné Dominique at Dusktildawn Designs for creating yet another masterpiece for me. The cover for “Lady of Seville” is gorgeous and describes the storyline beautifully.

Kindest Regards

Louise
