Excerpt

Ghost Walker audiobook meme

During dinner, Logan kept an eye on Zane and David, wondering what was so special about the newest member of the Blackwood Pack that Jackson would ask for a picture of him. He hadn’t told his brother about what happened when Zane and David shook hands, but he’d get to that when he called him later, back in the privacy of his hotel suite.

“David, are you coming back to the hotel with us tonight?” asked Theo.

Zane spoke up, “We haven’t decided what we’re doing, Theo.”

“Where are you from?” asked Norm, then adding quickly, “Not that it matters but I was just wondering.”

“No problem,” David said, “I’m from a region in Italy called Tuscany.”

“I know all about it,” Kieran said, “It was one of the areas my Shaman made me study. I always wanted to go there to see the Church of the Four Gods. From the pictures my Shaman showed me, it’s magnificent, but he told me I couldn’t really appreciate it unless I stood exactly in the center of it, looked up and turned around in a circle and then I’d understand why so many paranormals chose to follow that religion. Have you ever been there?”

Unsure if Kieran was trying to expose him, David felt the urge to vanish again and it was only Zane’s hand holding his that kept him there giving him a sense of calmness. “Yes, I have,” he answered, “but I never did that. What happens when you do the circle thing?”

Shrugging his shoulders, Kieran said, “I don’t know. My Shaman never told me that, only that I would find understanding, but that doesn’t matter to me, I just want to see the architecture…Oh macushla, did you ever go there?”

“No, but I agree with you—it’s a stunning piece of workmanship,” answered Logan, “and it’s one of the finest examples of Ancient High Gothic Celestial architecture left on earth.”

“It’s a church for paranormals? I never heard of it. Can humans go there too?” asked Theo.

“Only if they’re mated to a paranormal,” Kieran said.

“You mean a shifter can have a human for a mate? Pooh bear, did you know that?” Theo asked.

“No, I don’t remember learning that in school,” Norman answered.

“My Shaman,” continued Kieran, “told me it was more common a long time ago, but after humans started to hunt shifters—and when shifters began to go underground, so to speak—the gods decreed it should stop. They also forbade any shifter from disclosing the existence of another.”

Dakota then joined in. “Slate told me the original owners of this pub were a wolf shifter and a human and that’s what saved it when the war against the Scottish wolf shifters occurred.”

“Very true,” Ian’s mother, Lili, joined in. “Your parents would bring you here, Ian, whenever they had to visit Edinburgh. Do you remember?”

“So that’s why I had a déjà vu moment downstairs,” Ian chuckled. “I was chalking it up to my pregnancy hormones.”

Smiling, Lili’s husband, Samuel, said, “Remember dear, we would come here every year for our anniversary.”

Lili ducked her head, giggling, as she remembered what they did afterwards, and said, “Of course I do…and I also recall how beautiful the nights were.”

Seeing Ian blush at his mother’s comment, Colton smirked at the thought his mate wasn’t comfortable about his parents reminiscing about their sex life, so he steered the conversation back to the original topic. “If I understand you, Kieran, the Church of the Four Gods is also a religion?” asked Colton.

“Uh-huh. My Shaman told me about it but I wasn’t too impressed at the time because my belief in our gods and the Fates was very strong, but seeing the Church of the Four Gods was always something I wanted to do. Hey, macushla, I have a great idea!”

“Oh, no, here we go again!” groaned Theo.

“What do you mean?” Zane asked.

“Anytime, Ki says he has a great idea, beware,” answered Norman.

“P-u-u-leeze, that is so not true,” Kieran said. “I was thinking Logan and I could stop there on our way to Mykonos.”

“Why are you going to Greece?” asked David.

“Oh. My. God. David, you and Zane must come with us since you are newly mated also.”

“What about Slate and me?” asked Dakota. “We’re newly mated too.”

“Absolutely!” cried Kieran. “The more the merrier I’ve always said.”

“Ki, why Greece?” Zane asked.

“It has the very best gay parties with lots of music and dancing, and fabulous theme parties where we can make our own costumes. And then, there are also pool parties with lots and lots of hot sexy men that are about 99% naked.”

“What are they wearing if they are 99% naked?” asked Theo.

“Speedos!” exclaimed Kieran. “Teeny, tiny swim suits that highlight everyone’s assets, if you crotch my drift!” he said, giggling at his play on words.

Theo’s eyes widened then, turning to Norman, he said, “Pooh bear, I want to go there too. Can we, please?”

Norman smirked, he knew exactly why his honeybunch wanted to go. “Sure, if Ki agrees.”

“Oui!” Kieran answered, clapping at the thought of the fun everyone would have.

“Babe, before you buy tickets, I’ll have to check in with Jackson about the work he wants done,” Logan said.

“Oh, I know, macushla,” Kieran said, “I’m just making plans.”

Groaning, Logan murmured, “That’s what concerns me.” Then he lifted his mate onto his lap, nuzzling Kieran’s neck and giving him soft kisses and gentle nips until he got to the mating scar, which he licked.

Macushla!” Kieran exclaimed, shivering in excitement. “Oh, my gods, that’s what rim…”

Watching Logan place his hand over Kieran’s mouth confused David because, as far as he could tell, Kieran wasn’t doing anything other than talking. Bile rose in him—the sight of physical restraint brought back bad memories of his time with the High Priestess. If the Alpha allows this, I don’t want to be in the Blackwood Pack. Calling forth his ability again, David disappeared, taking Zane with him.

GHOST WALKER AUDIO/Mary Rundle

Hi everyone, I’m Mary Rundle and thanks for hosting me today for my blog tour of Audio version of Ghost Walker, Book 6 of the Blackwood Pack saga, narrated by Nick J. Russo. Today, I’m answering some of the questions posed to me from my readers. Today, I’m answering some of the questions I’ve received over the years. Please enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What’s the best way to market your books?

Here’s where traditional publishing appears to have a leg up on the indie writer. They will promote the hell out of titles they publish, send authors to book signings, get them on TV shows and so on. This sounds exciting and glamorous to new writers but there’s a dark side to it. They will also put you on a writing schedule for your next books that can be exhausting, with deadlines looming at every turn. And they will rip you off on royalties for all the work they do to promote your book.  Which sounds better—a 10 to 15 percent royalty on a book you waited a year for them to publish? Or a 70% royalty on a book you can publish and get a return on right after it’s been written?  Yes, you will have to do come promotion yourself (or hire someone to do it) but when you look at how fast you can get your book out there and start getting money for it, it’s a no-brainer.

What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?

None. I just sit down and begin to write. However, that doesn’t mean that research doesn’t occur along the way. As a woman writing about male/male paranormal fantasy, there was (and still is) lots to learn. I am constantly in touch with my gay males friends to get their take on their lifestyle and, since my books do incorporate a lot of fantasy and foreign venues, I’m constantly knocking on Google’s door to educate me.

Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?

Well, in the sense that my characters channel their thoughts to me and sometime chastise me strongly for not taking paths they want to go on, you might consider it somewhat spiritual. But in the godly sense, no.

What’s the most difficult thing writing about characters of the opposite sex?

I grew up with three brothers so I had a head start there. But I also had to immerse myself in the gay world, which I found to be far more interesting than lifestyles portrayed in traditional male/female romance novels. Once I accomplished that, it was easy going. In fact, many of my male readers have told me I write the best male/male sex scenes of any author they’ve read…including gay male writers.  

What did you edit out of this book?

Nothing. Everything just seems to come together and fiddling with it, I’ve found, can just make it worse. Now that’s not to say it didn’t need the assistance of an editor editing and proofreader, and also several beta readers to lend some extra pairs of eyes. The lack of these post-production elements can kill a first-time writer in a New York minute. Remember, readers arepaying for a professionally-looking book, not some piece of junk full of spelling mistakes, bad grammar and continuity errors. In this business, “good enough” doesn’t cut it.

What was your hardest scene to write?

Sex scenes present a challenge in that you want them to be highly erotic and emotional, and not dry clinical explanations. The most difficult one was a two-chapter scene that involved a thrupple (three men) who were having sex. I had to pay a lot of attention to details of who was where and doing what to whom without interrupting the flow of the moment with too much “stage direction.”

What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?

Being interrupted by all the things that happen during the day. Doorbells ringing for deliveries, calling to see why the guy who cuts the grass hasn’t come, grocery shopping, stuff like that. So I turned my life inside out and started to write at night, sometimes not finishing until five or six in the morning. I live in a small town where “lights out” for most people is nine p.m. Everything gets suspended in space after that.  It’s made a big difference.

What are you working on next?

Two books – first, Brady’s story. I’m hoping to release Blood Prophecy, Book 11 of the Blackwood Pack series by the end of August − depending on whether Brady’s mate behaves himself. Also, the next audio book – Serpent’s Teardrop. Nick finishing his narration so hopefully it won’t be too long before it’s available on  Audible.


Author Bio

Mary Rundle

The first book I ever wrote was Dire Warning in 2017 and, much to my delight, it became an Amazon Best-Seller. Readers loved it and I was on my way to chronicling the Blackwood Pack, seven brothers who are gay wolf shifters in search of their fated mates—stories about love at first sight with twists and turns, angst and humor, romance and adventure and, of course, happy endings.

As my books began to be translated into other languages, I also became an Amazon International Best-Selling author and then achieved the honor of becoming an Amazon All Star due to their popularity. My tenth book, Darkness Master has just been published and audible versions of the entire series are in progress.

I love the M/M paranormal genre because it gives my imagination a lot of territory in which to roam. My mind can really run wild and come up with some amazing stuff when it doesn’t have to stay inside the box.

My readers tell me they feel like they’re members of the pack as the stories unfold…as if they’re right there in the middle of the action. Others tell me it’s like watching a fast-paced movie. My writing style pulls no punches…readers love it and are always clamoring for the next book.

Stories come to me as if channeled by my characters, all of whom I love (except for a few villains). They are eager to recount their lives, loves and adventures and are not inhibited when it comes to revealing steamy, sexy details.

I currently live in the Northeast and love the beautiful change of seasons, my husband, and our quirky calico cat, though not necessarily in that order. I’m always happy to hear from my readers and can be reached through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or my website.
