Happy Summer

It’s been a while. I’m working hard on Sacrifice of Mercy. It’s the final book in the series. I’m trying to make sure I wrap up all unanswered questions.

In the meanwhile, I’ve been posting chapters of Looking (Title might change for publishing) on Wattpad. It’s a New Adult Romance with a dystopian type twist. It’s more of a romance, and not a save the world book. Nothing on the lines of Divergent. It’s set here on earth in today’s times. There has been an “Ecological” event that makes it more dystopian. Anyway, it’s hard to explain. Give it a try and share your thoughts with me. Who knows, I could take your advice and give you a shout in the book.

Here is the blurb…

Harlow Forde, a nursing student, has loved Jackson for as long as she could remember. When the small town sport’s hero lands a full scholarship to a prestigious university, he’s forced to choose a future over the only girl he’s ever loved. When a natural disaster sends him back home, the fact that he doesn’t return alone doesn’t stop his attraction to Harlow. Only Mother Nature doesn’t turn out to be the town’s only foe. Together, they are forced to work in harmony to save the town they love while their attraction continues to burn bright and threatens to combust.

I would rate the book mature audience, but there isn’t much in the way of explicit details that a mature teen couldn’t handle.

If I would cast Jackson and Harlow, I might choose these two model/actors

I HOPE YOUR HAVING A FANTASTIC SUMMER!

Readers wanted

Okay, I thought this might be fun. I’ve been wanting to try Wattpad forever but I didn’t have a story to post. Now, I have this story that might have never seen the light of day anytime in the next year. I decided why not post it for you guys to read. It’s New Adult contemporary although there is a dystopian twist to it. So far, there is a bit of steam in it (I call it more angst), but nothing a mother would worry about a young adult reading. (nothing explicit).

Love to hear what you guys think about it while I work on completing my next project. I’m curious how this wattpad thing works. I’ve been too busy writing, I’m late to the wattpad phenomenon.

Anyway, the book is titled Looking. This is the current cover, not sure exactly how I feel about it. Anywho…

Happy Valentine’s Day (a day early)

Valentines

What better way to celebrate with Mercy and the boys. So I’ve posted two deleted scenes. One from Angel of Mercy and the other from Have No Mercy.

I have other deleted scenes and will post more in the future as we draw near to the final book in the series. So much is going to happen, I’m not sure how I’ll cram it all into one book. But I will find a way. It’s been on my mind a lot.

Thanks for all your support. If you haven’t written a review for Have No Mercy, consider writing one and posting on Amazon. (this is me begging, lol)

I’m working to get Broken Len released. I’m a little behind, but it is going to happen.

And to Mercy…

(thanks Tiffany for the first two teasers. I absolutely love them.)

Lullaby for a Solider

HNM coming soon

I know I’ve kept you waiting. So, I’m gifting you a Bonus POV. I haven’t done one of these in a while. I hope this helps with the wait for HNM. I don’t have a date yet sadly. But I’m hoping before summer is over.

For a listening choice for this POV, I would suggest Lullaby For a Solider (Arms of the Angel) by Maggie Stiff

Update to the Balance Sheet series

Hindsight is crystal clear. From what I know now, I would have made several different choices. Many of those wished changes have to do with my Balance Sheet series.

This story spoke to me so loudly, I had to write it. I thought, I have my Cambion and Through the Lens projects to finish. What should I do? I found it hard to find the inspiration for the others with this story in my head. So I decided, I’ll write it in pieces in between working on my other projects.

Well, that may not have been the smart choice. The jury is still out. I do know that I feared reprisal from Liabilities. I knew you guys would want more of a certain someone. The question was how to accomplish that and be true to the story. This is where hindsight comes in. I could have written Liabilities in dual POV much like Equity. I could have and didn’t think of that because of the nature of the story.

Time is not my friend these days. I don’t have that luxury to write an entire another half of a story. I’m already off my schedule because an opportunity came up unexpected that I had to seize. So what to do?

I’ve added three bonus chapters to Liabilities told from Kalen’s POV. For those who purchased the book prior to today, you didn’t have the luxury of reading.

To avoid spoilers to those who haven’t read, I’ll trade you. If you’ve read both Assets and Liabilities, send me a link to your Assets review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble, your e-mail addy and I’ll give you the code to read the free bonus chapters online. Each chapter will give you information where these chapters have been inserted into the story.

Send me that information through my webpage so you don’t leave personal info here. Use subject Liabilities Bonus Chapters. http://www.shannondermott.com/#!contact/c1kcz

May 20th is fast approaching and the conclusion to the story will be available soon.

It’s a New Year…

It’s 2014 and the year is off to an interesting start.

After finishing with Liabilities, I was able to take time to see some movies, like Catching Fire and the second installment of the Hobbit. I have a lot of love for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Hobbit series. Man that guy could write and had such talent for putting together his imagination on a page. And let’s not forgot the Hunger Games trilogy. It was really nice to see book to movie conversion done so well consider condensing a longer book into a shorter screenplay. Have you guys seen? What did you think?

I’ve been doing a lot of playing out in my head about each of my books. I wish I had magic fingers and I could get all of it down on a page in minutes instead of weeks and months. I’ve plotted out Mercy’s conclusion. Okay, so I’ve known how it would end. More like the details and I’m anxious to get it down and finished.

I’m also ready to bring TTL to its conclusion. Ethan needs to finish telling his story.

A song that’s been playing in my head and on my speakers on repeat is Wait for Me by Kings of Leon. I feel like it describes characters in flux in each of my books as a song sung to other characters. Can you guess who would be singing to who?

But today I’m here to talk about Liabilities. I took a risk in writing an adult tale. I needed an outlet for all the things I couldn’t write in YA. Assets, Liabilities and ultimately Equity are really one book. I took a chance in telling the story in the “series” way because I needed to get other things written in between. In doing so, it may appear that the story is headed in a certain direction.

For me as a writer, I try to give the reader enough information so that they really understand the characters and the decisions that they make (bad or good ones alike). All my main characters are flawed. Somehow, perfect characters to me aren’t as interesting. As such, they make mistakes, human or paranormal ones, lol. Because I’m a reader as much as a writer, I totally understand when you want to shake, slap, yell or whatever at my characters because you perceive what they are doing as dumb, idiotic, crazy, etc. But that’s what people do, we make mistakes. Heck, my mistake was writing and releasing the book in pieces. What’s done is done. Again, I get it. I just hope you guys continue to trust me.

For Equity, the story will be told from two POVs, Kalen and Baileys. You got a taste in Liabilities. Now it will be full out throughout the book.

As a teaser, I’m posting the unedited first chapter in Equity. Click the link below. Enjoy.
