the good the bad and psy

Post by Fuarie on Sun Jul 19, 2009 10:44 pm

I've had so many questions to ask but you know my mind is blank now.. I guess I should just throw out some that come to me here and there.

I loved BBF! The two are so powerful not to mention that Hawke was in it and he is my favorite!

1. So we saw another pack or flock seeing how they were birds..Are they going to be seen a lot more in later books?
2. Lucas and Sascha are having a baby. Are we going to see more babies any time soon?
3. Will the Ghost ever have his own book..if we ever find out who he really is!
4. Is Nikita starting to make a turn towards rebellion...much like Anthony? If not then is she feeling emotions? Why else would she send her daughter a book?
5. When the mating bond happens why doesn't the female take the males name?
6. So far we know that librarians and healers are sort of born into their status so are there other status' we will be learning about?
7. Are there going to be more bondings between the two packs? I mean yeah the sentinels are all taken but not the whole pack?
8. Are Hawke and Lucas ever going to trust each other?
9. Will Kit ever get his own book? What about Teijan or other rats?
10. What is the name of the rat pack?
11. How do you feel about people making fan art of Fan fictions about your work?

Wowsers, you have many questions! Good thing I can type fast Very Happy

Adam prefers the term "Wing" - I would LOVE to do books focusing on WindHaven, but it'll probably be a bit later on in the series.

2. Lucas and Sascha are having a baby. Are we going to see more babies any time soon?

Yes, I think someone else is going to be thinking baby thoughts soon.

3. Will the Ghost ever have his own book..if we ever find out who he really is!

Yes he will, and you will Smile

4. Is Nikita starting to make a turn towards rebellion...much like Anthony? If not then is she feeling emotions? Why else would she send her daughter a book?

Why indeed? Shocked For the answer to this, you'll have to wait till Max's book. (Lots of good stuff on Nikita in there).

5. When the mating bond happens why doesn't the female take the males name?

Taking the name is really a cultural thing. It isn't connected to the bond. (Also, with changelings, mates bear each other's scent in their very skin, so everyone already knows they belong to each other.)

6. So far we know that librarians and healers are sort of born into their status so are there other status' we will be learning about?

Yes. There's also Hunter (like Lucas). You'll see a few others as the books progress.

Generally speaking, I tend to try and share only the information necessary for each book - otherwise, there's a real danger of info-dumping. Which is why you see the parts of the world as the characters interact with that world (hope that makes sense!).

7. Are there going to be more bondings between the two packs? I mean yeah the sentinels are all taken but not the whole pack?

Each story has to also progress the overall story arc. So if there's a SD/DR pairing in the future that does that, then yep, I would write another book folks from the two packs. Or it might be something I could explore in a novella.

8. Are Hawke and Lucas ever going to trust each other?

Sascha asks herself that question every single time they snarl at each other Laughing Seriously, I think there's a growing bond between the two, but they are both alphas. For them to truly trust each other will take time.

9. Will Kit ever get his own book? What about Teijan or other rats?

Kit is still so young - and unlike Lucas, he doesn't have to grow up fast. He's got time yet to play.

I don't think Teijan will get a whole book, but he does fascinate me, so he might get a storyline within the series.

10. What is the name of the rat pack?

They're somewhat of an anomaly - they call themselves the Rats. But that's because they haven't had a chance to truly form a home-base, a place where they feel safe enough to settle and create something. Now that that security is happening, they are discussing taking a name.

11. How do you feel about people making fan art of Fan fictions about your work?

Fan Art - no problem. Fan fiction - I don't mind this either, but I can't read it for legal reasons. So don't send it to me. But otherwise, no problem.

I'm so glad you do are doing a Q.A. I really am!

1. I only remember Hawke being wolf only a few times. Does he not like to shift?

2. Did you personally create your races? The psy and Changelings? Or did you find out about them somewhere? If they are yours then how did you go about creating a race...seems like a big task!

3. Are there domestic types of changelings like dogs? If so are there various breeds?

4. So Toby will act as an E-psy. Will we be seeing more of them as people try to break silence? Are there any more hidden designations that we will be seeing?

5. The symbol on Kaleb's arm is it a tattoo will we be learning more about what shape it is?

1. He loves to shift. It simply that most of the scenes we've seen him so far in haven't been ones where he's shifted. (Remember, it hasn't been his book yet - he isn't supposed to take over everything...though he tries Wink )

2. Yes, they're all mine Smile I suppose I just have that kind of a mind!

3. You know, I've never considered this. Let me think about it - I'll have to go roaming in my world.

4. You will see more E-Psy later on, yes. And yes, there are a few other designations that have either been hidden or...lost. That's what everyone thinks anyway.

5. It's not actually a tattoo. It's marking made another way. And yep, you will find out more about it.

Just a few more I swear!

1. I wanted to let you know that every time I read one of your books or even the little teasers you give us on the site I get inspired and my need to write kicks up. Thank you for being so inspiring!

2. How old are Tammy's twins?

3. Do most the members of SD live in the den?

4. I noticed some asian like references when it comes to homes (such as paper screens and what not). Is that true or is it just my imagination gone wild.

5. In BbF we read that Riley howls and Hawke comes running from hearing the sarrow in it. Do the wolves communicate with howls like they would in the wild? Like thier own secret code?

6. In CbI we learned about the feral wolves that love Hawke..are we going to be learning why the love him so much later on? Perhaps in Indigo's or his own book?

7. When you picture your characters do you also picture thier animal selves? How do you decide to make a them a color such as a grey wolf and a white wolf...a panther or a leopard with dark markings on his face?

8. What about bug changelings? I picture a buterfly's change to be much like the snake's with shimmering scales...speaking of that snake are we ever going to see her?

9. How much bigger are changeling animals compaired to feral...I mean my rat is pretty big maybe he is Teijan.

10. What the heck is Hawke's last name?

1. That's so cool! Thank you for telling me Smile

2. In late 2079, they're not yet 3 (as per Beat of Temptation), so end of 2080, they'd be almost 4.

3. Many do, but many are scattered across the State. But everyone has a place in the den for whenever they want to come back.

4. This is quite possible - I lived in Japan for three years, so I sometimes put things in naturally without noticing I'm doing it.

5. In wolf form, yes.

6. Yep. (He's pretty feral himself, you know.)

7. It's strange, but I don't really decide. It's just how I see them.

8. Again, never really considered bugs. I think they'd be too small for the shifting to work. As to the snake - maybe.

9. Depends on the animal, but in the case of the Rats - they'd be noticeably, significantly bigger.

10. I ask him this and he laughs Rolling Eyes

:p thanks for being so giving with me I try not to ask questions that you can't answer

1. Are pack alliances rare?

2. Did I misread or do Hawke and Lucas have a blood bond?

3. When birds change can you see pretty feathers like you would a snakes scales?

4. Hawke is such a mystery to all his own fans. Does his fan base shock you at all? What about the others?

5. Vaughn and Faith didn't seem to have a mating dance...or did they? It all happened so quickly.

6. What ever happened to Dorian's parents? We know what happened to everyone else's but what about his?

1. Are pack alliances rare?

Yes, and no. They take time to develop, and grow, so yes, they're not something packs enter into easily. But at the same time, they have nothing against entering into an alliance with someone they respect.

2. Did I misread or do Hawke and Lucas have a blood bond?

Yes, they do. An alpha to alpha blood bond that is the basis for the alliance.

3. When birds change can you see pretty feathers like you would a snakes scales?

Of course. They can change partially as well, like Adam does at the end of BRANDED.

4. Hawke is such a mystery to all his own fans. Does his fan base shock you at all? What about the others?

It's interesting how everyone has different favorites, but Hawke is definitely the character I get the most fanmail about. I'm not shocked (he is pretty awesome *g*), but I have been surprised by how strongly people seem to feel about who his heroine should/shouldn't be.

5. Vaughn and Faith didn't seem to have a mating dance...or did they? It all happened so quickly.

Each dance is different, with it's own characteristics. No way to judge one by looking at another.

6. What ever happened to Dorian's parents? We know what happened to everyone else's but what about his?

I think it's mentioned in HOSTAGE that they go roaming a lot in an effort to assuage their pain over his sister's death. That is changing slowly with Dorian's mating and especially with Keenan in their lives, so you may see them at some stage.

4. Is it hard to keep up with the site...the books..and a blog?

7. Maternal Females? Does that mean they are pregnant or are they homemakers?

8. Do changeling females have regular cycles of heat?

9. Can we get another hint about the secret information? I know it is on the news page under upcoming releases but can I get another hint? PLEASE PLEASE!

Lucas is both.

2. What ever happened to Juanita?

Naughty, naughty, you didn't read Beat of Temptation property *grin* She mated to a male from another Pack, and lives in their territory now.

3. Does Mercy's actual name mean Mercy?

Hmm, that is a good question! The nickname has nothing to do with her name as we know from Branded Smile

4. Is it hard to keep up with the site...the books..and a blog?

It's getting more difficult. I may become a little slower in answering emails - but I still intend to keep replying. So be patient if you email me Smile

5. Will Lucas' cubs be Hunters as well?

We'll find out when the baby is born.

6. Can males be healers?

Yes. Remember Finn from Beat of Temptation.

7. Maternal Females? Does that mean they are pregnant or are they homemakers?

This is explained in Branded when Mercy thinks about her mom, so I'll refer you to the book.

8. Do changeling females have regular cycles of heat?

No, not like cats. They're human in that respect, except they need touch on a deeper level.

9. Can we get another hint about the secret information? I know it is on the news page under upcoming releases but can I get another hint? PLEASE PLEASE!

Noooo. My lips are zipped.

10. How does someone get a chance to interview one of your characters?

I suppose you could request an interview - but right now, they're pretty busy what with the Council and the Alliance and Sascha's baby (cause you know, EVERYONE has to look after her - yes, she is going insane).
