What inspired you to write this story?
My characters sort of hijack my brain. Jaromir Ragnarsson came to me in my sleep one night and told me the story of BloodMarked (The Fraktioneers #1), my first published book. But there was one quote that hung in my mind.
He’d done it before, been tied to someone through his blood. It was a devastating thing, and not something he wished to do again. Ever. ~BloodMarked – Chapter 4
I wondered about the first time, long ago, that Jaromir had been tied to someone. What had happened? I tried to move on to the next part of the story, but the backstory became a bit of an obsession. So BloodLoss (The Fraktioneers #0.5), an all new prequel novella, was born.
Join your favorite Book Boyfriends, Jaromir Ragnarsson & the ever-wonderful Stein, nearly 400 years before the events of BloodMarked (The Fraktioneers #1 ) in this all-new prequel novella, BloodLoss!
Cursed to live in the shadows, Jaromir Ragnarsson wanders the world, searching for a sign. What he finds wasn’t exactly what he had in mind.
Nearly four hundred-fifty years after a fateful meeting with a Wyrd woman changes his life, Jaromir is no longer alone. His adoptive son is the light of his long life, and he believes he will do anything to keep him safe.
When that belief is tested, will he have the strength to do what is necessary? Even if, no matter what he chooses, he loses?
