I conceived of this novella sometime during the summer when I was in the thick of writing HiS. I made my notes, plotted it out, and let it sit. I actually started working on it maybe a month ago, and I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made. I even came up with a blurb for it:
When her father is captured by military scientists, firecaster Embry Hollister will do anything, break any rule to free him. Unable to complete her mission alone, she turns to the only Shadow Walker who can help her—her father’s protégé and foster son, Gage Dempsey, whose memory was wiped years ago. Embry and Gage must fight the clock—and their undeniable attraction—praying that his skills return in time to infiltrate a secret military base and rescue the man they both call father.
So now, I need a title. Since my skills in this area generally reek of suckitude, I’m calling for your help! Possible titles that occurred to me are Shadows of the Past and Fire and Shadows. Seriously, what is it about me and ____ & _____ names for stuff? Shadow and Fang. Pots and Plots. Anyway, neither of these options particularly thrill me. Have you got something better?
Central concepts: fire, shadow, memory, being caught between two worlds
A few notes: Shadow Walkers are essentially the Special Ops group of my paranormal world. Embry is an agent for the Investigative and Enforcement Division (the FBI type group of the paranormal world). She’s going rogue to rescue her dad.
If you happen to offer up something I love, you will receive my undying gratitude, mention in the acknowledgements, and the book of your choice from Amazon (up to $10). Yes, the book offer is totally a bribe. But seriously! I used up my one good title for the decade on the YA I haven’t even written yet.
So roll in those suggestions!
