Living with My Black Wolf Shapeshifter

So far, so good... fingers crossed, toes crossed, eyes crossed... whatever it takes, I’ve been living with my Black Wolf ShapeShifter, Duke, and I’m making some good progress on his love story with my heroine, Sondra.
A successful script writer in LaLa land, Sondra is burned out and has taken refuge at her best friend’s isolated house on the edge of Custer National Forest in Montana.
And, howls to the first quarter moon, do I hope the penning of their story continues at a steady pace.

This is where I am currently ~

Duke, my black wolf hero shifter, has been through a life-threatening chase while in his wolf form. Now, he’s trying to find any kind of safe place to recover. Meanwhile, Sondra is wired and can’t sleep. She’s being lightning-jolted by some unknown force among other creepy happenings. Plus, her intuition is zapping her, letting her know her life is about to undergo a major change.

Unedited snippet from my WIP ~ THE BLACK WOLF’S PROPHETESS

Surprised by the light beaming from the window at this late hour, Duke moved into a limping trot letting the slice of radiance lead him as if it were his own personal invitation. Detecting only one human with his nose, he concentrated on reaching the house so he could shift--the closer his proximity, the better his chances for survival.

As he neared the house, Duke slowed to a painful amble, and sniffed deeply again. Instead of scenting whoever was inside, a metallic stench burned the inner flesh of his nostrils. His muscles bunched powerfully in reaction, readying him for battle.

The goblin emerged in full form, it’s hide a dull shine as it nearly jumped from the misty ethers. Grinning menacingly, the disgusting creature stood directly in his path.

Duke focused on the meatiest portion of the goblin’s scrawny body, so he could sink his fangs in and shake the creature until it’s bones rattled.

With it’s red eyes glowing ever more brightly, the goblin advanced, a tiny mocking fist on it’s skinny hip.

Flattening his ears, Duke growled ferociously, and prepared to hurl himself at the flesh-

Oh this is very intriguing! Do you have a home for this new work?

Serena Shay said...

Oooh, goblins have made their way into Duke and Sondra's story. I like! Positive vibes for continued progress on the story, Savanna!

Savanna Kougar said...

Hi Crystal, no, not yet. I'm just getting it rewritten into a much longer story.
However, I'll probably sub it to Siren-BookStrand since they've been good to me.

I just found out Stallion will be available In Print once Amazon gets it on their site. It's been placed.

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, thank you, thank you. I need all the positive vibes I can get!

Same to you!

More wolves and print books! Yay! I agree, Siren-BookStrand is good to their writers. I'm sure they'll offer Duke a good home once he settles that goblin problem.

Forgot to mention, Roderick in London Werewolf is also a black wolf shifter. Does Duke have an accent?


Paris said...

Well, Yum;-) a black wolf shifter. Can't wait for this one. Congrats on Stallion being available in print on Amazon!

Savanna Kougar said...

Pat, I'm hoping for the best. Duke has a Montana western accent... however, his ancestors are direct from Ireland... so, they could have some kin in common... somewhere along the wolfie line.

Savanna Kougar said...

Paris, thanks. I'm looking forward to holding the book... and just looking at it lovingly.

Hmmm ... I believe Roderick's Uncle Todd moved to Montana with his human wife and their pack ... could be a crossover in the works...


Savanna Kougar said...

Pat, now that could be darn howling interestin'. Maybe Roderick's Uncle Todd could make a brief appearance... ?
Or, a later follow up appearance... hmmmm.
