Gypsy Writer Divorcee

As an author, I’m supposed to share my life with fans ’cause they want to know the person behind the creative genius 😉 Okay. Not a natural inclination for me to share, but here goes:

My first post as the GWD. Can I throw an A in there and make this GAWD!!! It only took me 28 years to get here, but hey, who gives a rat’s sash?
I’ve been divorced for eight years, so yeah, doing the math means I was married for twenty. Wow. I’m going to say that again: Wow.
How in the hell did that happen? I write about love as a secondary job, but holy wedding vows, love is some powerful shit. Not to mention blinding as f*&#.
I stayed with someone for twenty years and then left him. Gawd, writing that down hits home, you know? I stayed with someone for twenty years and then left him. How in the fanny pack did I even do that?
Well, I know how.
It reached a point where it was killing me to stay. Simple as that. Either I died emotionally and spiritually…you know, where you just give up? Where you just can’t even argue about shit anymore because what’s the point? Yeah. So that’s where I was when I decided to become a traveler.
It was either hit the road or hit the bottle, and I have juuuuust a smidge too much self respect for the latter (okay, brief aside. I hit the bottle in binges and chased it with a bit of Idon’tgiveableep. Aaaaanyway…). So, my first excursion was onto the internet, where I searched for a job in another state

Found one. I’ll end the post here ’cause the job and the leaving deserve their own air time. Come on back if you can stand to listen to one more author blather on about her personal life and how she came to write books.
Tata Titties–which I cut off, but that’s another post–for now 🙂

Lover in…waiting

Now that I have my feet firmly planted in new soil, I’m back writing. Which means I’m working on the fourth book in the Darkest Kynd series. Spoiler alert: it’s not going to be about the character you think it is.

For those of you who like the way I’ve been setting up the series, you’re going to be disappointed. Not! It’s just that Kallen still has issues to work through and he’s not ready for his Chosen One.

Who is? That’s for you to wonder and for me to keep my grip on this runaway stallion!

As for his love match, she’s a good hearted girl-next-door like Angelia with a bite fiercer than Violet’s! Add to that a dash of claws and a new-found taste for freedom, and you can bet our hero is going to have a tough time with this one.

I’ll leave you with that and plenty of time to get caught up.

Happy reading!

I’M BACK!

I went gallivanting to a different website, but came back to my old hunting ground. In the meantime, I wrote two more books in the Kynd Series. “Lover in Darkness” and “Lover in Chains.” Both continue the tales of my sexy gargoyles. Check ’em out!

Public Thanks

Hi, Readers!
I’m caught in a wormhole and I’ve lost track of time. It’s been over a month since my release of Lover In Stone, and I owe each of you a thank you for your kind reviews of my latest book, especially since it’s so different from my first series The Luna Chronicle. Yeah, they’re both paranormal romance, but the similarities end there. I won’t bore you by listing all the ways the writing has changed because you already know them.
Instead, I’m going to share what Gemma Davis had to say:

Lover In Stone_FNL

“Well, S C Dane has done it again! This story is about Grotesques before they become encased in stone, kind and gentle beings forced to walk though hell, everyday and night. Is there someone to love them and show them the light of Earth again? By the end of the first chapter, SC Dane got you! Each of the new characters become real – you feel the Grotesques sorrow – their questions and their indecisions. By the end of the book you have met, loved and hated the characters. When you reach the last page, you’ll find a small smile on your face and then that smile turns upside down. NO! I have to wait for the next book to learn the fate of the other Grotesques! I would give Love in Stone – 5 Stars”

Pretty cool, huh? Gemma was a fan of my Luna Chronicle series, so to hear her say how much she liked Lover In Stone let’s me know I’m on the right track writing-wise.
Unfortunately, she’ll have to wait until next summer for Dark Lover, the second book in my Kynd series. This one will feature Darken, whom you all met in the first book (he visited Merrick at Hell’s Archway then gathered the other Kynd when he learned Merrick was in trouble.) If you visit my Pinterest page, you’ll find my inspiration for both Darken and his love interest, Daniela.
Right now, I’m working on the third book, which is all about the bear chimera, Urick, and his struggles with his love, Violet, who embodies everything he hates about himself. Such turmoil!
Anyway, it’s why I’ve been lost in that wormhole. If I can finish it by the end of September, it can be released just a couple of months after Dark Lover and you guys won’t have to wait so long to find out what happens with my gargoyles and chimeras!
Until then, let me say Thank You once again for your support. In my head, my characters are very much alive, so it’s a true pleasure to learn that my readers are as excited about finding out what happens to them as I am.
Have a wonderful day, All, and happy reading no matter what it is 🙂
My very best,
~S.C. Dane

Reviewers Needed

#reviews #romance #gargoyles

Hey, all! This might not be the place to invite my fans to read and review my new release, but screw it. If any of you have read my bio on my website you already know I’m not much on rules. So, here we are. My new book Lover In Stone, Lover In Stone_FNLa paranormal romance, was officially released on Amazon and I need reviews for it. I’m offering a free read in exchange for a review. It sounds like I’m bribing folks for five stars, but again, those who know me won’t hesitate to share their honest opinions. Because that’s what I want: Honesty. Short and sweet, too. Click how many stars you think it deserves and call it good. If you want to wax on about why you loved, liked, or hated it, go ahead. It’s up to you. Just bear in mind my writing is graphic. If you’re squeamish, you’ve been warned.
To get started, you can email me. I’m going to need to know who and where this free read is going to. Otherwise, nothing will happen. So, get in touch if you’re interested. I’m at scdane@yahoo.com.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
Here’s a blurb to whet your appetites:
To the world they are the Grotesques—hideous chimeras and gargoyles. But before they are locked in their stone prisons, they are Kynd——magnificent beings condemned to prowl the nightmares of every realm.
Their tortures will doom them.
The love of a Chosen One could save them.

Merrick has become a beast. Angelia has been chosen to save him. Will their fragile love survive the Hell the chimera is chained to?

Bear With Me

Please #bear with me! It’s been a while since I posted anything, but this is my first day off from the ranch in a while and every other free minute I’ve had has been taken up with writing my latest novel. It’s the third book in my Darkest Kynd series, and it features my #chimera character, Urick, who is part grizzly bear.

Not only has ranching and writing kept me busy, but I’ve got a new release slated for June 28, 2016. It’s the first book in my Darkest Kynd series, titled Lover In Stone, and I’m wicked excited about sharing it with the public.
There’s a lot of work involved in a new book release, but somehow I’m managing to juggle everything. Besides, hanging out with Uri the Bear Chimera is fun!
