Sycamore Heights, where everyone keeps a deadly secret.
On the surface Katrina Harvey is like any other 17-year-old about to start their senior year but not everything is quite as it seems. After being violently attacked she loses her memory and now has no idea who is friend, foe, or – most importantly – that she happens to be a 235-year-old vampire.
Now Katrina is being stalked by someone, or something, who doesn’t want her to remember her past and will do anything to keep it that way.
Sixteen-year-old Suzanne Harvey was left distraught when her older sister, Katrina, disappeared two centuries ago. Suzanne was turned into a werewolf soon afterward and ever since that day she has been focused on finding her sister. A twist of fate leads her to Sycamore Heights, the same town that Katrina now lives. Now, as Suzanne gets closer to revealing secrets from the past, someone from the present doesn’t like what she could unearth, even if that means they drive her to the brink of insanity to keep the secrets forgotten.
Welcome to the second post in what I hope will be an ongoing series in which I will be spotlighting certain “family trees” that are in Forgotten and will appear throughout my “In The Shadows” series. To avoid spoilers I won’t be mentioning any characters by name but you can look forward to posts about werewolves, witches, soulreapers, shadowshifters and fey folk.
Throughout the ITS series you will come across both born and made werewolves. Below is what abilities my werewolves possess. Please Note: I have been influenced by certain aspects of werewolf lore, but not others. I understand that some people are attached to how they picture a werewolf, but this is what I imagine for my books and I hope everyone will respect that my ideals may be different to their own. Thank you.
Family Tree – Species
Born werewolves up to the age of ten are known as pups but even though they will still show some of the abilities that adult werewolves have, pups don’t have the ability to transform into a physical wolf form until the age of twelve.
For the next three days (30th, 31st October & 1st November) I am taking part in a witchy/paranormal promo.
Some of you might be thinking “Witches? Your book is about vampires & werewolves, not witches!” Well, I do have one scene in Forgotten where a witch is referenced in passing, but (and this is a spoiler for book two) witches will feature more prominently in the next book in the In The Shadows series. I’m making good progress with book two although it’ll be a while before it’s released, but luckily for me this promo also includes paranormal books and Cate Dean included my novel. 🙂
Also, for those who patiently waited for the next post in my behind the scenes series, well, the wait is almost over as tomorrow I will be posting all about my werewolves.
*Blatant promo ahead*
*End of blatant promo*
You can buy Forgotten from the following places:
I also have to tell you all that, sadly, my paperback won’t be released before Christmas. Something that I thought would be in place fell through but, rest assured, when the paperback is released next year I will announce it here on this blog along with on my twitter, Facebook & website. I have also been asked again when Masquerade, aka book two, will be released. As I mentioned in my first edition of Ask Cat (which you can find here) there are no firm dates as of yet, although I can say it won’t be ready before February 2013. In the meantime, I do have something that I will make an announcement on soon which I hope will be a pleasant surprise for those who are waiting patiently for the next book in the In The Shadows series.
I have noticed that I get a lot visitors looking for the release date for, Strange Fate, book ten in the Nightworld series by L.J. Smith. So, I thought I would give another update on the status because if other fans are like me then you’ll be eager to know how the series is going to end. Below are the dates I found on a couple of the Amazon websites. I hope that this helps anybody who is interested. 🙂
Lastly, for those of you who are waiting for the Behind The Scenes peek at my werewolves, your wait is nearly over as the post will be up within the next couple of weeks. Just when I think I have finished, my werewolves want to reveal more of themselves; they will do anything to out do my vampires!
Anyway, as always, thank you for your patience & your continued support. It is always appreciated.
