Introducing: Poise & Rationality

One thing I absolutely love is when authors write truly fantastic side characters. The kind of character who steals every scene they're in ... probably to the author's dismay and our delight as readers.

Alexandria Chance, for example, is an author who excels at this. Whether it's Uncle Lee Chester in the McClain Brothers series, the parents in the Strickland Sisters series, or the hippy mom and sister in the Romey University series, they all leave me wanting more.

As great as romance is about series where each book follows a different character, there are always going to be friends and family who don't get nearly as much page time as we'd like.

My first novel hasn't even come out yet, and already I have side characters in multiple WIPs who genuinely think they're running the show. They're a bunch of dominant personalities and drama queens, but hey, that's what makes me wish I had the time and energy to expand into their own stories. Since that isn't an option, I decided to test out the next best thing ...

A monthly gossip column to keep up with what's going on in the shared universe written by a character to be revealed in a later book! So, without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to the chismosa behind "Smut Not Tragedies."

Poise and Rationality is nothing if not a tease, but if you want more content, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter. You'll also get a free download link for the story P&R is gossiping about here: Ride or Die.

Ride or Die is an MFF werewolf motorcycle club short story. It is a kinky, little fast-burn about a witch who's kidnapped by the enforcer and alpha of the rival motorcycle club. Not to continue the centuries old blood feud between the coven and the pack ... these three are here to put the lust in bloodlust.

That's all for now! Leave me a comment. Tell me what you're currently listening to, and let me know which of Poise and Rationality's article you'd like to see more of in the newsletter:

  • Be so nice, Santa will come twice

  • Prepping for Midnight Mass? What's he really doing with all those candles?

Until next time!
