Prism Book Alliance would like to thank Silvia Violet for taking the time to talk with us today.
Title: Shifting Hearts
Author: Silvia Violet
Publisher: Self Published
Cover Artist: Meredith Russell
Genre/Sub-Genre: M/M Romance, Paranormal
After experiencing what happens when someone you love walks away and never looks back, Brandon decided love was for fools. Then he spent a summer with Zach. He struggled against feelings that grew every time he and Zach were together, telling himself they were just having a fling. When Zach confessed his love one hot summer night, Brandon panicked. He scoffed at Zach and made sure he walked away first.
Three years later, their paths cross again when Zach becomes the vet at Wild R Farm where Brandon works. Brandon realizes his feelings haven’t changed, but Zach treats Brandon with scorn despite Brandon’s every attempt to show Zach he’s no longer the self-centered man he used to be. When a night out ends with Brandon driving Zach home, confessions are made on both sides, and hope begins to build in Brandon’s heart.
Keeping a Series Fresh:
Keeping a series fresh is certainly challenging, particularly if the books follow the same characters. In my Fitting In series, I met this challenge by having the first two book told from a different character’s point-of-view With my Wild R Farm series I have the advantage of each book focusing on a different set of characters. In each book, I introduce new characters and give a little foretaste of what their story will be. Bringing in new personalities and including different types of shifters helps keep me, and hopefully the readers, interested.
In each story, I do revisit at least some of the characters from previous books. I try to show character growth for the characters readers have already met even if they aren’t the focus of the story. I also work to balance revisiting characters and the storyline for new characters along with just enough backstory to keep readers who come in mid series from being lost.
With Book 6, Shifting Hearts and the upcoming Wild R Christmas, I made a change to keep things fresh. Rather than having an external crime or suspense element, I focused solely on the developing relationship and the personalities that make Wild R Farm a place I wish I could visit in real life. I thought this might be the end of the series, but you’ll meet someone in Shifting Hearts who needs a story so there will be at least one more book.
Brandon settled his and Zach’s tabs and managed to get Zach to his truck without incident. “Did you drive here?”
“Nope, Martin picked me up.”
Brandon snorted again. Fucking Martin. The two of them together was so not going to happen.
Zach giggled. “I’ve always loved it when you go all ferocious stallion.”
Oh fuck. “Just get in the truck, Zach.” Brandon helped him step up and maneuver himself into the passenger seat.
“It’s fucking wrong.“ Zach said as he laid his head back on the seat.
“That you’re so fucking hot.”
No. No, no, no. This was not happening. “Just close your eyes and stop talking. You’ll be better off that way.” Maybe he’d pass out and then Brandon’s dick could stop reacting to his soft words and beautiful eyes and everything that made him the only man Brandon really wanted.
“No, I’ll forget it all. Best thing about being drunk. I might as well say what I want because who will care later.”
“Nah, you never did. That’s what makes it so unfair.”
Brandon rubbed his forehead, trying to ward off a massive headache. “You’re wrong about that. I—”
“What? You didn’t mean to look at me like I was a bug you wanted to squash when I said I loved you?”
“You’re drunk. Really fucking drunk, and I’d be an idiot to say anything now. More of an idiot than I already have been and—”
“Fuck, you’re babbling.” Zach looked extremely amused.
Brandon scowled at him. “Nope, it’s your imagination”
“Yeah, it is”
Zach grinned. “You could kiss me to shut me up.”
