At the end of the day, each novel in the Wolves of Willow Bend adds to the overall mythology, but remains focused on the core couple and how their lives are changed by knowing each other.
Looking for some great paranormal escape this month? Head over to Willow Bend for some small town romance with a bite!

My slightly dumb but gorgeous Viking dragon shifter, Leo, is on the loose! Leo is hot AF and does not like Nazis. That is all you need to know.
Barnes & Noble
Note that this series should be read in order! You can find the series order and buy links on my website.
As a special bonus, I’ve just received the cover for Book 4 in the series, Seducing the Dark Prince:
Jane Kindred is the author of the Harlequin Nocturne series, Sisters in Sin, and the epic fantasy series The House of Arkhangel’sk, Demons of Elysium, and Looking Glass Gods. She spent her formative years ruining her eyes reading romance novels in the Tucson sun and watching Star Trek marathons in the dark. She now writes to the sound of San Francisco foghorns while two cats slowly but surely edge her off the side of the bed.

…Or How To Keep Writing that Novel Even When You Want To Quit.
- How to bounce back from all that sitting by making a DIY standing treadmill desk
- Secrets to winning NaNoWri for pansters (raises hand) and procrastinators
- For your loved ones who must deal with the NaNoWri obsessed
- How NaNoWri is a little like being a alien
- The month after NaNoWri Poem
What Kept My Fingers on the Keyboard
You Can’t Edit A Blank Page (I’ve
tried. It’s Useless)
Peer Pressure (AKA: Find Your People)
- I may have a ‘hot mess’ of 50,000 words, but there is bound
to be some diamonds in the rough once I tear it apart with editing.
Be A Role Model (Moms Can’t Be Quitters)
- I joined several teams (SavvyAuthors NaNoWri Bootcamp and From the Heart Romance Writers (FTHRW)) who competed
for the most words for the month. There’s nothing like a little competition to
get me up and at the keyboard at the crack of dawn. The sprints, motivational
quotes and team spirit helped as well.
- Besides my teams, for the last few years I’ve not competed in NaNoWri alone. For two years both my daughters joined in, but didn’t make it
too far through the month (they were around 13), last year one of my daughters
did NaNoWri with me but she didn’t hit the word count, but this year she did! When I was tempted to give it up I'd see her determinedly pushing through the word counts. When I showed her my winning certificate on the 29th, it pushed her enough to finish over 5,000 words in one day and make goal!
What I Learned From This Year
- Prepare Before You Start: I don’t outline, but prior years when I wrote a brief summary of the story, or at least a list of plot points I ended up with a more coherent story—that still required heavy editing.
- Don’t Be A “Yes” Girl: I knew from the start of the month that I’d overextended myself with personal, professional and writing obligations in addition to NaNoWri. But I was too stubborn to miss my favorite month.
