How Does Pressure Affect Leaders

Today I’m over at Cynthia Woolf’s blog talking about how pressure affects leaders. Elisabeth Staab King of DarknessMany factors went into the personality of Thad, the king in King of Darkness. In the vast sea of vampires out there, there are a lot of badass alphas. When I started studying monarchs and and guys under pressure like FBI investigators, what I found out was that the truly strong ones are the ones who are man enough to be weak when they need to be. When the pressure of that awesome responsibility builds up, it’s gotta go somewhere. I wanted to see how far my hero could be pushed, how much tragedy I could throw at him, and still have him come out the other side in one piece. I have to say, Thad may have stumbled a bit, but he never fell completely…

Meet Anton…

I’ve just started round 2 of edits on Prince of Power, book 2 of the Chronicles of Yavn. He’ll be officially releasing in January , but can be preordered now from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I love, LOVE this cover. Hands down, I think this is one of the strongest, sweetest, and sexiest heroes I’ve worked with. He’s dark and intense, and he sacrifices an awful lot to save the woman he loves. I hope you love him just as much as I do.

Speaking of Barnes & Noble, if you’re in the DC/MD/VA area, I’ll be doing an  in-store signing in Reston, VA from 2-4pm at the Spectrum Center Barnes & Noble. Right off the Dulles Toll Road. In addition to getting your books signed you can get your questions answered and also win some cool prizes! Come and join me.
