BLURB:

Lord Branin of the dragshi, is more than just a man, but two beings—one a dragon, the other a human. The pair share one body in space  in time and are able to change forms with the other at will. From the time  Branin’s twinned soul, Llewlyn, awoke, Branin knew the freedom of flight.  However, being a shifter came with a price. Branin and Llewlyn are the only two  of their kind who have not found their intended mates, despite millennia of  waiting…and searching.

The red-haired firebrand, Broch of Ky’Port plans  to fill that position in Branin’s life—with or without his cooperation.

When  a faint thought impinged on Branin’s mind, hope for an ending to eons of  loneliness soared. Plagued by doubts because no signs of a dragon shifter’s  birth have been seen, Branin searches the world for the mysterious girl he only  knows by the name, Anastasia.

June Tips and History

backstory graphic  One thing that is uniform amongst all genres is backstory. All characters have a past. They may not know it, or we may not want to reveal it, but there is one. While authors sometimes have their characters participate in a well-known event (such as Hurricanes Catrina and Sandy or watching a horse race in the Belmont Stakes for the Triple Crown) that is not the only way events, both national and worldwide can be brought into a characters past. 

June 6, 2014 is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied forces invasion of Normandy.  For those writing in a future setticharacter past graphing, the character could find an ancestor’s personal letter written after the event. The loss of a family member as the numbers of the members of the greatest generation dwindle might be another item of backstory. The point is that the character does not have to be the one experiencing the event for it to be part of his or her past.

There doesn’t even have to be any personal relationship at all. The character might witness an elderly man riding up the street in a convertible or be stuck at a traffic light as a funeral goes by. An even more haunting usage is to be walking past as cemetery as the bugler plays the final tribute.
 
As you go througwriting tip-past graphich your daily life, keep an eye (or ear) open for celebrations, anniversaries, and commemorations. You never know what will tickle your interest. 


Till next time ~ Helen
