Update

Well, I'm almost to my word goal for the week... BUT (there's just always a but), I'm about to chop 1000 words off, so....

The story is tentatively called Daemon Heart, by the way.

I also put in about 1500 words on the related novella. The working title for that is Shadow Heart. It's about a pair of diagen ("contrasexual") werewolves, Thad, from Alun's pack, and Roland, an omega wolf from the pack encroaching on Alun's territory--which for werewolves means war. Needless to say, Thad and Roland have a rocky road to walk... 

I'm working on the stories simultaneously because they take place in roughly the same time frame. Daemon Heart focuses on Alun, James, and Robin (the Daemon in the title), as well as a "satanic" murder they're investigating.  Shadow Heart is Thad and Roland's story, and focuses on them and the imminent war between their packs... oh yeah, and it features the main--or maybe worst--antagonist from the first story, Heart's Home.

Back to writing... after breakfast!

PS -- is this a good time or a bad time to admit that I've only just decided on who the "satanists" are? LOL

Sleeplessness (and my husband's dreadful television program) drove me from my bed last night, and I ended up catching something on the History Channel. Satan or Hell or... something. It was late, I was tired, but it was better than Russian Dolls (what my otherwise wonderful husband was rotting his brain with--his excuse is that he married a Russian "doll", so... yeah, right.)

At any rate, I now have an excellent 'villian' which will translate on over to my Urban Fantasy (if I ever get it finished)because as I was recently admitting to someone else: I am lazy. I write one single universe and everything in it connects. Even if I'm writing a contemporary piece without vampires, rest assured that in some seedy club somewhere, the fang gang are sitting around drinking a bloody marys (maries?) waiting for me to write them in...

They don't always get their wish.

Okay, back to work... I'm out of the house enjoying a large toffee nut lattee, extra foam..... nmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....
