Update: The winner of HOWL FOR IT is…Stacey Marin! Congrats!
Do you like werewolves? Do you eagerly tune in to watch True Blood each week because you love Alcide? Do you think it’s just awesome when he changes into a beast? (Or changes back into the form of a man and–whoops–his clothes are gone?) Do you remember the old Howling movies? The ones that showed us that werewolves can be horrible monsters that destory all those who are unlucky enough to get near them?
Werewolves…they can sexy or they can be scary. And, sometimes, I think they can be both.
My contribution to the HOWL FOR IT anthology is a story called, “Wed or Dead.” In this story, my hero is a werewolf. (Right, you saw that coming, didn’t you?) I wanted him to be sexy, but I also wanted Gage to have a rough, dangerous edge. When I think about werewolves, I always enjoy that rough edge that comes with them. Werewolves aren’t controlled. They’re men, but they’re also beasts. And, at any moment, that beast side may just break through the man’s control.
One of my favorite werewolf movies is Cursed with Joshua Jackson. In this movie, (spoiler!!!! Don’t read ahead if you want to watch the movie!), Joshua plays a character that is both sexy and scary. Sure, his scary side may take over at times, but I love the mix that is shown in his character.
Just how do you like your werewolves? Tell me, and you could win a copy of HOWL FOR IT. I will be back on Thursday at noon (Central time) to randomly pick the winner.
Thanks for checking out my post!
