At this point, I have enough published works to do one promotion a month without any lapses. So, I should promote my books monthly. This month will be The Secret of Preshift.
The Secret of Preshift is book two in Modern Werewolves. There are two levels to this series. The world arch and the minor series arch. The series as a whole is called Modern Werewolves. This minor arch that will contain three books is Crazy Alphas. The other two books within this series are The Secret of Pack 413 and The Secret of Luna.
The Secret of Preshift follows Kitty Kostet. She has grown up as a luna in a pack she cannot become the luna for. So as her first shift comes, she questions where she can find a proper alpha mate. After spending some time with Richard, Kitty believes becoming his mate would suit well enough. That is if her true mate doesn’t show up before she turns. She was not expecting her parents to jump before shift, though. Becoming a luna successor to a pack isn’t the bad part. She hates the fact her parents are forcing her into such. Why? Can’t they at least say why?
Kitty doesn’t hate the new pack or her future mate. She just wants to know why.
Open your mind to the insanity of werewolves in the second book of Modern Werewolves: The Secret of Preshift.
Genre: Urban Fantasy.
Would I consider this book a paranormal romance? Yes and no. The reason the book isn’t marked romance is because although this one may pull it off, not all of them do. There is too much gruesomeness within the series. I won’t change that. Werewolves are where horror and romance collide. Some of the books lean closer to erotica. Others are filled with horror. It’s a world unlike any other.
That is why at the beginning of the books I always put:
This book is for mature audiences. I do not shy away from sex, sexuality, fighting, or gruesomeness. If it fits in the story, it will be within the story. Each book (excluding several of the shorts) of this series is meant to be a full story surrounding the true mating of the main character.
It should stand alone, but also can be read as a group. Each book is written in the voice of the main character, which is why some almost ignore the romance and some do not focus on the actual action.
It’s important because of the topic and the concerns around said topic. You can’t have the main character watch their father be killed in the first chapter and think oh this is romance. That’s book three, The Secret of Luna. So even if this book is tame over all. Not all of them will be.
Not every story will be about a teenager either. Each book hits a slightly different concern and issue. Things humans deal with, although not exactly the same.

That’s the first two complete mini arcs as currently stands. Crazy Alphas are nearly done. Crazy Town is the second arc group. Crazy Town isn’t fully organized, so it may change some, but not much. These guys are getting their story told.
As for anything else within the world: ask questions. I love my werewolves. I have many stories of different types. Although the bulk are a true mate pairing as the main plot point, that’s not always the main focus of the story. It’s there, though. So as much as romance is a possible genre, it’s more horror is too commonplace.
And here, I hate horror. Still, life has a lot of horror. Horror is everywhere. I give you horror and still aim for a happy ending. Or happy-ish ending. Sorry.
