Naomi Clark – Guest Blog & Giveaway
Today I have Naomi Clark , author of Silver Kiss here guest blogging along with a giveaway! Let’s give her a warm welcome. 🙂
Ayla Hammond has come home.
After years as a lone wolf in a self-imposed exile she’s rejoining the pack and trying to mend fences with her parents.
She’s convinced them to accept her girlfriend, but can a lone wolf change her ways?
As if homecoming wasn’t hard enough, Ayla also can’t help getting involved in a missing person case.
With pressure to solve the case mounting from the pack alphas, Ayla is starting to question where her loyalties lie – and if a return to the pack she left behind is really what she wants.
Did you know that silver bullets didn’t exist in werewolf mythology until the 1940s? Like a lot of other things we now take for granted with our werewolves, it was invented by Hollywood – specifically for the film Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man.
Hollywood also gave us monkshood (a key part of SILVER KISS’s plot!) and pentagrams as weapons against werewolves. Not to mention the idea of a werewolf passing on its curse by biting and scratching, and a werewolf’s victim transforming at the first full moon after their attack.
One of the things I wanted to do with SILVER KISS was mix up traditional werewolf lore with my own ideas. So whilst you won’t find my werewolves attacking humans and turning them into shapeshifters, you will see that monkshood is definitely a weakness. And you won’t see any pentagrams or mysterious gypsies hanging around, but you will see full moons and plenty of silver… although maybe not the kind you think…
