Inside Tymber Dalton’s Crazy Brain…
Tymber’s Crazy Brain…
The brain…the brain. *sigh* A writer’s brain is a craaAAAAZZYYY thing. Literally.
No, seriously. It’s LITERALLY insane. Mine is, at least.
For example, I was all set to work on one of my other series books this month, when a chance, off-the-wall comment to a friend while I was bitching about the Facebook app for my iPad, and BAM!
Yes, just like on the cooking show.
“Here,” says my muse, “you don’t have enough rattling around in that already scattered noggin of yours. BAM!” (Except without any cool glitter or pixie dust or whatever.)
“NO!” I screamed. “I was JOKING!!! JO-KING. I do NOT need ANOTHER series right now!”
“Oh, too bad,” sayeth the muse. “You got one. Not going to make you let go of this one. You will write it.”
“I don’t want to write that right now! I’ve got other books to write!”
Muse: “Take it, take it, TAKE IT!!!”
Me: “Do I at least get lube?”
Muse: “BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH…no. Bend over.”
So, yes, now I’m working on ANOTHER series. A rollicking, hopefully funny post-apocalyptic ménage series that’s a mix of the A-Team, The Walking Dead (except not zombies) and Mad Max. With ménage.
Its focus is on the special military team called the Drunk Monkeys, who are actually pretty kick-ass dudes, and have to save the world in every book while getting laid and not, you know, dying. LOL I’m tentatively calling book 1 “Monkey Business,” and every title will have “Monkey” in it.
Meanwhile, my latest book in my Triple Trouble wolf-shifter series is now out, “Triple Cross.” It’s book 7 (technically the 10th book if you count all the prequels. LOL) And can be found at: http://www.bookstrand.com/triple-cross
Seer and wolf shifter Elain Pardie-Lyall has a baby on the way. If that wasn’t enough to deal with, she’s got to conduct a little grave robbing, battle vengeful cockatrice…and then there’s the accidentally exploding moose. Just an average day in her crazy life. It’ll get a whole lot worse before it gets better as she uncovers a painful secret from her husband Ain’s past.
Ain is willing to let Elain do what she needs to in the course of her Seer duties. What he didn’t expect was a chance to atone for an old mistake. Fixing what was means sacrifices for one of their friends, and even more drastic changes for their future.
Now Elain has to figure out how to keep her secrets. Not just from her men, but from her family, friends, and allies. But with only the Devil to lean on, can she turn away from ancient patterns of vengeance and embrace a future of forgiveness?
and “A Clean Sweep” (Suncoast Society 8) on (tentatively) 5/30/2014.
