Vampires, Tigers and White Collar? with @MeganSlayer #PNR #vampires #shifters #paranormal

I bet you’re wondering where I got the wacky title for this post. Glad you’re wondering. MS_YouHaveMeI’m a visual writer. I’m a visual learner, too. What I mean is, I need visual stimulation when I write. In layman’s terms, I need a hot guy as inspiration for my stories. The guy doesn’t always have to be the same guy. Trust me, the guy changes a lot. From story to story, usually.

For example, when I started the Battle Scarred series, I binge watched the television show, White Collar. Ever heard of it? There’s a guy who is a forger and a thief who ends up working with and for the Feds. From an art perspective, I loved it. I mean, art and a hot guy? I’m in. What really hooked me was the intelligent writing. Oh and Matt Bomer was danged cute. I loved how he pulled off the suits and the fedoras with ease. The more I watched him, the more I could see him—and those blue eyes—as a vampire. But not just any vampire. One MS_YouOwnMethat died in the 1940’s and was all about the look. That’s where Kynan, from You Have Me, was born. Kynan’s a dominant man—in and out of the bedroom. He can’t just be there. He’s got to be in charge. That’s where Matt Bomer fit the bill. He can stare at you with those eyes and you’re paralyzed. Okay, maybe I’d be the one who is paralyzed—and drooling—but who’s counting? See? He was just the visual inspiration I needed.

In You Own Me, Kynan’s best friend who also happens to be a tiger shifter, has his turn to tell his story. He’s nothing like Kynan. Where Kynan’s tall, dark and sophisticated, Creighton, my tiger shifter, is bulky, tall and foreboding. Sound like anyone you’ve ever seen? I could say he was inspired by the Rock, but that’s not entirely true. Creighton’s a blond. To a degree, he’s like Jake Gyllenhaal from Prince of Persia, but he’s bigger and blonder. So where exactly did I get the idea for Creighton? Thor. I love my Marvel movies. Love ‘em. I’ve got all but the Hulk on my computer in digital form. When I write, I listen to those movies. So yeah, quite a bit of Thor seeped into Creighton. Hey, he’s a hot guy and I was inspired. Grin. Plus, Creighton’s the kind of guy who fills a room and looks menacing. Chris Hemsworth, aka Thor, does that well. I can never quite tell what he’s thinking, even when he smiles and it’s a little unnerving. But that’s Creighton, too. Big, scary, but a teddy bear in the right circumstances.

There are two more books in the series. Who was the inspiration for each of those stories? Well, you’ll have to keep reading the series and your eyes peeled for more posts to find out.

When the Idea Strikes with @MeganSlayer #writing #ideas #creativity

Originally posted at the Romance Studio: https://wp.me/p8f7P3-1xh

Sometimes it seems like the ideas just won’t come. Sometimes they’re stuck. Like, really stuck. I can’t seem to work out what will happen next…at all. No matter what I do, I’m just…stuck.

That happened this past weekend. I’d worked on a story that’s been there the whole time, but just wasn’t ready yet. I had this character who has been difficult. I knew he wanted his story told, but he just wasn’t ready yet. So I thought he was. I started his story and had a word count limit. I knew I’d blow the limit. I tend to do that anyway. But this time, I knew it was going to happen. But I thought, hey, I can turn this into two stories.

Then the story fell apart. Kind of. It wasn’t going to work for the particular situation I was using it for. Now for some writers, this wouldn’t be a big deal. Write it anyway and publish it. But I don’t work that way. I want the story to be right. I don’t like to rush.

So then I was asked to take part in an anthology. I won’t lie. The previous story running into bumps threw my muse into a tailspin. I used to be able to work on two or more manuscripts at one time. Not any longer. I need to concentrate and for me the story works better when I’m focusing on one. So… The previous story wouldn’t work for the anthology, but I really wanted to take part.

What’s a writer to do?

I let my muse have a break. Yep. A big old break. The funny part is, when I let the muse off the hook, that’s when they (I’m convinced my muse is a couple) decided to cooperate. They came up with a fantastic idea. I had no clue they’d do that. Most of the time when I give them a break, they take forever to work with me.

But this post is about the idea striking. I set out to plot the story, since I had the start. But the more I wrote the outline, the more the actual story came forth. Fast and furious. I’ve been working on it ever since. I love when this happens. The story is there, it’s flowing and the idea is fresh. It makes me happy to write. I love to create. When I’m not writing, I’m not…me.

Does this happen to you? Have you ever had something not so fun turn into something fantastic? I’d love to hear about it.

Speaking of something not so fun turning into something pretty great, my upcoming release, Doc Cedarwood. Check it out!

Doc Cedarwood by Megan Slayer

Can an accident and a rim job lead to a lasting love?

Aiden Connor wasn’t looking for a date. Sure, he wanted one, but relationships seem to be too difficult to maintain. He’s an ER doctor and doesn’t have time for commitment…that is until he runs over a curb and needs a new rim for his sports car. The mechanic isn’t anything like he expects, but could be the one man he needs if he’s willing to open his mind and heart.

Matt Phillips equated dating with disaster, but sees himself as an eternal optimist. When he sees Aiden, he wants to give relationships a try. Every cell in his body screams to get the sexy doctor naked and in his bed. But Matt has demons and addictions he’s still working through. Will he fall prey to his past or learn and move forward with the hot doctor?

Why I Love My Library ~ Carrying Books, The Badge of Honor by @MeganSlayer

Check it Out Banner

Originally posted at The Romance Studio: https://wp.me/p8f7P3-14Y

I love the library. I don’t know too many authors who don’t. There’s something magical about being surrounded by books. Of course, I’d love for the library to be mine. I mean…lots of books and all the time in the world to play with them…sign me up. Finding a new author or new adventure is one of my favorite things.

But since April is Love Your Library month, I wanted to share a story about my love for my library.

When I was in high school, we used to get what seemed like a paper a month to write. Now I never minded writing papers, but back then I didn’t have a computer, so that meant typing on the old typewriter. Also, I wasn’t the greatest typist back then. I somehow managed to squeak through my high school career without taking a typing course. Remember those? Yeah, I never took one. I think I was too busy hanging out in the art room and they might have changed the requirements so I got out of it. I don’t remember.

What I do remember was having to go to the library, quite voluntarily, to hunt up books for the papers. I’d spend as long as I could at the card catalog. I loved the smell and the feel of the cards. It was an adventure. Find the info and hunt down the book. I had an idea of what I’d be finding, but then there was the discovery of the info inside. I’d hunt down the book and usually sit in the aisle to give the book a cursory read.

Now the thing about me that used to drive my classmates crazy was my insane ability to drag most of those books with me to school. I’d have stacks as high as I could carry of my books. I’d claim I was reading them–which I probably was when I had free time–but it was also a bizarre status symbol. I guess I was just that loony that I wanted everyone to know I had these books and was doing my work. Yep, I was a nerd or a geek…whichever…in school. I liked to learn (still do) and didn’t mind the work. That’s why I loved the library. I could escape to the library and do what I loved–learn.

What about you? Do you love the library? What’s you favorite section? Mine’s the biography and romance sections, although I’m partial to mysteries, too. Do you miss the card catalog–the one with the actual cards? Or are you partial to the computer search? I’d love to know.

Now a little bit about my latest release, Bed of My Truck.
