But here's a TL;DR version: When I took on the series solo, I didn't inherit a lot to go on re: Zane and his arc and his background. I had to use scenes of books we'd already written, and the very few things my former co-writer had shared with me in messages about her creation of the character.

One of the very last scenes written of Zane before the split was the one I shared in that blog post, where Zane receives a call telling him that Ty is dead, and his very first instinct is to put his gun to his head with his finger on the trigger because life just wasn't worth it if he didn't have Ty with him. This is a scene where the BAD GUY is telling him Ty is dead, and yet his first instinct is not to rage or go out to find them, it's to put his gun to his head.

That is not a Zane any of us want to know.

That Zane is still the Zane from the first 7 books, the one who views Ty as a crutch, a drug, as just another addiction to feed. In the last act of the last book, that's just unacceptable. There's no character development there, there's no growth, there's no HOPE. Intending for Zane to float through 9 entire books, depressed and dark and hopeless, with only one thing to live for? The thought just broke my heart.

That's when I scrapped everything I had on Zane, and began to make a plan that would have him rise from the ashes of the first 4 books as a phoenix, instead of wallowing in them.(less)

“Who are you, Zane?"
Zane cocked his head. "I'm an artist. I'm a geek." He felt Ty smile. "I am one badass motherfucker on a motorcycle."
Ty began to laugh.
Zane dipped his head until they were staring into each other's eyes. "And I'm yours.”
Abigail Roux, Touch & Geaux

“You’re so freaking romantic. I don’t know how I keep my pants on.”
Abigail Roux, Fish & Chips

“Zane was starting to piss him off again. Which was good, he supposed. It meant the urge to lick him all over was passing, at least.”

Mary Harris I am about to re-read the cut and run books before the last one comes out. What is the correct order, with the sidewinder and warrior's cross included?

message 26: by Angel

Angel Hi Abi, just wanted to congratulate you on all your awards for the Cut & Run series! You totally deserve it as your books are freakin' fabulous!!! Just think after all that BS with people calling you down about your writing, this is like a big "up yours"! Believe in how much your fans love you and your writing and embrace that. Again big congrats!:)

message 25: by Ellen

Ellen Hey Abi, just finished Touch & Gaux and Shock & Awe (both brilliant—I'm so glad Ty and Zane realised they were becoming slightly co-dependant and had to sort their issues out separately).
I was wondering if we'll ever get short stories of like Zane pretending to be the rich boyfriend at his co-workers wedding or the offices reaction to the public good-bye kiss?
Thanks you for writing and being so interactive with us! best xo

message 24: by Becky

Becky Totally brilliant way to help Boston after what happened yesterday! You are THE BEST!

message 23: by Becky

Becky So after reading the Nick and Kelly scene some of us are wondering if there could be shirts made at Cafe Press with one of our favorite lines "I want the Irish Special" :)

message 22: by Becky

Becky Just read the ficlit with Nick and Kelly. I WANT MORE OF THEM!! Nick is a favorite of mine and he's great with Kelly. Plus that is one HOT scene :)

message 21: by Becky

Becky Just read the excerpt from book 8 out on the Riptide Publishing site. You gotta love Ty! He never fails to make me laugh :)

message 20: by Nic

Nic Congratulations Abi on your big win - so well deserved! You are a ground-breaker!

message 19: by Becky

Becky Congratulations on winning DABWAHA!!

message 18: by Becky

Becky Just finished "Touch & Geaux" and it was nothing short of AMAZING! Its probably become my favorite of the series. Ty and Zane are written with so much depth, so many layers. They have become my favorite duo. I can't think of any other couple that comes close to them. Thanks so much for creating them! The two twists thrown in around the middle of the book had my jaw dropping and THE ENDING!! If its true the next book won't be out til 2014 it is going to be one seriously long year...filled with at least one series re-read :) Thanks again for Ty and Zane! They, and you, are THE BEST!

message 17: by Emily

Emily Another epic book. Well done. You hit all of my emotions. I am having a drink while I begin my slow re-read!

message 14: by Sophia

Sophia Thank you for accepting my friendship request. I hope your new year is going well. I look above here and see your favorite authors listed. I adore Elizabeth Peters and Louis L'Amour. I love the madcap mayhem of Amelia Peabody and her family and I love L'Amour's power to put one right inside his heroes to feel and do what they do.

I just recently enjoyed your Gravedigger's Brawl. It gave me tingles up and down my spine at times. Fun!
