FINALLY, “Dragons Don’t Cry” is out. I’ve never anticipated the release of a book as much as this one… ever. Maybe because I carried the story in my head for so long and didn’t have time to write it. I finally jumped up the release date from fall to spring just so I could get it out of my mind but had to kick another book to the curb in order to finish dragons.
Drats, it didn’t work. Book two is burning a hole in my mind. I find myself working on other scheduled books but jumping into Dragons Don’t Love because I think of a conversation, plot twist, or… you get the picture. It also doesn’t help that I have the cover and it’s gorgeous.
But this post is about Bastian and Acasia.
My world of dragons begins with a curse after the Goddess Hera kills all but four dragons. The curse entails each surviving dragon choosing a human bride every one-hundred years. The dragons fall in love, and then watch their human slowly die of old age making them live out the remainder of the one-hundred years without their heart’s companion.
Bastian is my red dragon from the tip of his spiked tail to the red glow in his eyes. And of course when he shifts to human he’s about as HAWT as a man can be. He’s also secretive, territorial, stubborn, and on occasion—not the brightest crayon in the box.
Then we have Acasia… brave, inquisitive, foolish, and most of all loving. Bastian has sworn not to love again but Acasia soon gets under his skin.
One reviewer gave me a wonderful quote that captures my world of dragons perfectly.

There are four books planned in the series and I have the plots roughly mapped out in my brain. I have a feeling all release dates will move up because early feedback is requiring more dragons right now.
Fang Chronicles: Ivan is still on schedule for June. The first half of the book is about Talya coming of age and Ivan coming to terms with the loss of his mate. I love these two with all their struggles but mostly for their heart.
