The next story out will likely be Thief of Hearts, a novella length prequel to The Choosing. I'm aiming for an August or September release, depending on when the cover is finished.

I'm also working on Book 2, Alien Mine, in which Dyuvad ab Mhij (from one of the first scenes in The Choosing) is sent to Earth by a Net 'path.

Lots of people have asked me about Tyelu af Alna, Ryn's sister, and yes, I'm planning a story for her.

Finally, I may have a surprise story for you around the holidays, but the plans for it are still tentative. Keep an eye on my blog (www.lucyvarna.com/blog) for release dates and other info.(less)

It seems like…moreI have three stories I'm writing right now (one under another pseudonym) and two I'm editing, so this question made me chuckle a little. It seems like I'm always working on something new, and hardly a day goes by when I'm not writing something, anything. I love writing, absolutely love it, and can't imagine *not* writing.

So, currently I'm editing the next two books I'll release this year. The first is a short novel set to release in August 2014, called A Wicked Love. It's the second in the Witches of Cullowhee series. For those of you who hated the subtle paranormal elements in the first book, this one has more. :)

The second is a full-length novel called The Enemy Within. It's the third book in the Daughters of the People series, features one of my all-time favorite characters (Bobby Upton, who is just yummy), and will be released in October 2014. I loved writing this story, loved having Bobby and Indigo in my head, loved helping Indigo resolve part of the problems she has with her darker twin, India. (If you're wondering, I identified more with India, which may not say anything good about me!)

As for writing, I'm skipping back and forth between the first drafts of two separate stories, both set in the world of the People. In the first, Hawthorne, a centuries old Daughter, must learn to trust again, and must also ferret out a traitor to the People. This one's set to release in December 2014 under the title Tempered.

The second story features Levi, Hawthorne's great-grandson, and was totally not part of my regular writing schedule, so I'm kind of having to squeeze in time for writing this one. As a Son (and that's a long story!), Levi has certain duties and obligations, including finding someone who is, according to his family, an appropriate mate. Levi's heart has other ideas, and so does Sera, the woman he eventually comes to love.

I really have enjoyed exploring the world of the People, and hope readers enjoy it, too.(less)

Witches are everywhere in Cullowhee, and it's not even Halloween! Here's what I mean: A few years ago, I wrote and published my first novella, A Higher Purpose. It was not well received, so I pulled it off the market, fully intending to revise and re-release the following year. Then life happened and this project […]

“Have I not had enough time with my brave warrior to learn that she bends without breaking, that her courage is her strength and her grace the light sustaining her heart?”
Lucy Varna, Thief of Hearts

“Helluva thing for a man to discover, that he loved somebody about two shakes after she was kidnapped.”
Lucy Varna, Sanctuary

“She had a choice. For one brilliant moment, it beamed at her with an unusual clarity, fixing itself in her mind. She could push her fingers into the waistband of his shorts and discover the precise scope of Levi’s desire, or she could withdraw her hand and let whatever was between them continue to build. Either way, the end would be the same. Levi would walk away with some piece of her. The only question was, how big of a chunk would he take? Which path would bring the most heartache? It was coming, like a train steaming down the tracks, a frightening rush of noise and smoke and unstoppable momentum. Her only choices lay in the when and the how.”

“I’m gonna kiss you now,' he murmured, and she mmmd and tightened her fingers in his sweater, and then his mouth was on hers and his heart shouted a resounding yes. Her lips parted under his, accepting him, taking him in. It was like coming home after an eternity away. The rightness of it flooded through him, urging him to take more, to have more, and he burned with it, fighting the need that rose up, so fierce and urgent it overwhelmed him.”
Lucy Varna, Tempered (A Daughters of the People Novel)

“The desperate need he aroused in her would not be tucked quietly into its corner, there only when it was convenient. It raged and stormed and demanded, as she had always believed love should do.”
Lucy Varna, Tempered (A Daughters of the People Novel)
