Exclusive Guest Post: NYT Bestselling Author Dianna Love on Collaborating with the Queen of Paranormal — Sherrilyn Kenyon
With just two weeks to go until we publish The Curse, the brand new novel in the popular Belador Code series, we caught up with NYT bestseller Dianna Love to find out more about how the series came about and just what it is like to collaborate with the queen of paranormal — Sherrilyn Kenyon. You can read an excerpt from this exclusive guest post here:
I’m often asked what it’s like to collaborate with #1 NYT bestselling paranormal author Sherrilyn Kenyon and many times when I’m asked this, we’re out on tour or at reader events with her standing right beside. That’s when we look at each other and smother our chuckles, because we’re probably the oddest writing team out there.
Why? Sherrilyn has been writing since she picked up crayons, but I didn’t start writing until 2001. Sherri goes to bed at 4:00 am and I get up at 4:00 am. She’s a seat-of-the-pants writer and I tend to plot out complex story threads. She has three children. I have a saltwater tank full of fish, which is why I remind her that my life is far more stressful since she’s never had to flush a child. That’s when she reminds me that she’s wanted to do just that a couple of times.
How did we come to collaborate on two series? It happened about 2:00 AM one morning in the middle of a tour. I don’t remember which city. We’d just gotten in from a late signing and were trying to unwind quickly so we could grab a few hours sleep and head out by 6:00 AM. We started talking about a series she had going and got around to the BAD agency. She wanted to give it the darker, edgier feel of a thriller so I immediately started brainstorming something off the cuff. The next thing I know she’s suggesting we write it together.
