January 15th 2010 was the release date for Blood Visions the first in the Immortal Council Series. This has been such a fun project, that I am still working on currently. It is a world of immortals interacting, with little to do with the humans around them. I am so thoroughly enjoying this world I am creating that I continue to create more and more future stories for it, which is not a bad thing I suppose.
In this first book Blood Visions you meet a character who has recently been trying to take over my life, Zyra. She even has her own twitter account (www.twitter.com/zyrazyra) and blogs every Monday (www.naughtylittlevamp.blogspot.com) now because she refused to stay in my head. Another very fun thing I have found with this series. I really enjoy giving my character a life outside of the story.
I am tempted to give more life to some of my other characters from this series, but as of yet I haven't. I may though, if I can find the time. It can be hard enough being me, if I try and be a bunch of characters as well I will never get any writing done.
Blood Visions was not the first story in the series I wrote. I actually began with the second story, it was an idea my lovely husband actually inspired on accident and I ran with it. The words just flew, then before I finished I wanted to write for the Tarot series at www.extasybooks.com and picked the strength card. So my story is based loosely off the meaning of the strength tarot card and it inspired a pre-story for my series. I am glad it did, I think that my series would have been missing some important information if it didn't have this story first. It is the beginning of it all.
