Even Jake, the hero of the as yet un-named sunshine novella ...
Actually, that's not quite true - the novella has had quite a few names, some of them not to be admitted in polite company, but I'm awaiting a nod from my publisher on which of a selection they prefer for the final article. Or something that they suggest, maybe. It will probably have Riviera in it somewhere to give the clue about light and sun and holidays ... but I'm digressing, aren't I?
|Something for the holidays?|
Well - even Jake, from un-named sunshine novella, is an alpha. Billionaire, terror of Wall Street, all that stuff.
But now I'm I'm playing with what may grow up to be next in series for the light novellas and I seem to be writing a beta. Huh! How did that happen? Ryan is cute and capable of wading into a fight when he has to, but it's not part of the base layers of who he is.
This is fun, and a little scary, because I have never done this before. I'm used to the shoot first and ask questions later type and this feels, well, a bit weird. I don't want him to come over as wet. I already love him to bits, and his heroine, Nadine, does too, and he loves her, although neither have got round to admitting it yet. It's sort of a friends to lovers plot, but not quite. So you can see that an alpha might not work so well. Anyway, that's what I've got.
Is it going to work?
