Three Way Thursday with Gracen Miller

What are you thankful for?

You might be sorry you asked this question! With my coming soon release, Pandora's Box, I feel like I just won the Grammy's. *grins* Do you really want me to thank all those people that got me here? LOL  I'll keep it somewhat short.  I'm thankful for my supportive and amazing boys, which includes my husband of 19 years and my two sons.  Without them, I wouldn't be half the woman I am or half the writer.  They keep me smiling and grounded in reality…mostly anyway.  I'm thankful for my muse, who I've named DM.  DM is a slave driver and there are days when I wish he had an actual throat I could choke, but most of the time, I love and worship him. He prefers my love and worship. ;-)  I'm thankful I was given sons rather than daughters because boys are so much fun and aren't the least bit prissy…unless you ask them to do their rendition of a "girl".  *shakes head*  It is worth a laugh or two, but I hope they really don't think girls act like that!

I'm thankful Decadent gave my book, Pandora's Box, a home.  I'm extremely thankful Madison and Phoenix (from Pandora's Box) bombarded my imagination.  They're so alive and real in my head, it makes writing their adventures so much easier!  They keep me excited about writing! 

What've you been thinking about lately?

Correcting storyline for book two to match changes to the storyline in Pandora's Box, while contemplating how all the changes will fit into book 3, along with back story for secondary characters in Pandora's Box…confusing, I know!  Imagine being in my head!  LOL  Building paranormal worlds and keeping it cohesive from one book to the next isn't always the easiest thing.  But it sure is fun letting your imagination run wild! *evil grin*

What do you thirst/hunger for?

I'm a coffee addict, so coffee!! Otherwise, I thirst and hunger for the adventures of my characters. Living through them is so much fun and I would never want to experience half of what they do in real life.

Thanks for joining me today!  Come find me around the web!

We should take a many of us list coffee as a necessary ingredient to civilization, let alone to writing?

Yeah, getting all those storylines straight can be maddening! Been there, done that!

Love your grammy speech! Can't wait for the release of Pandora's Box.

Even though writing a series might make your muse dizzy at times, your characters get to continue their journey. Hooray!

I am trying to enter a comment and it keeps eating them.

I want to wish you all the luck in the world with your new series. Series usually do very well, so I know your will.

Love and blessings

I forgot I was supposed to be here today. *shaking head* I need to rescrew my head straight onto my shoulders.

Maureen, my bio says exactly how I feel about coffee: "She (that'd be me) is convinced coffee is nectar from the gods and blending coffee and writing together generates the perfect creative merger. Many of her creative worlds are spawned from coffee highs." True story!!! =D Coffee should have it's own food group. ;-)

Howdy, Kathleen. I agree with you. It can be dizzy keeping certain things straight in a series, but the characters are so much fun it makes it all worth it.

Rita, I hate it when blogger does that. Thanks for your support, it is much appreciated.

Interesting to hear your thoughts on writing a series. I have a series simmering away on the back burner. So, you're words were a little heads up for what's to come.

Keeping the laws and rules of your own created world can get confusing going from book to book. I am constantly writing down the laws I've created so The Brethren can do their jobs right. :)
