For me, Fridays have this mystical end of the work week. A kicking back, relaxing and enjoying the weekend appeal to them (I know! With my crazy life what planet do I live on?). But #FridayFeature is all about finding something I can enjoy over the weekend and I hope you’ll enjoy it too!
This week I welcome Rebecca Royce, author of Forever: The Dragon Wars, and she’s taking Beyond My Writing Space back to its roots as she answers the question ‘What does a creative writer do when they’re not creative writing?’
Rebecca is also offering you the chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card. But first I bring to you …
Forever: The Dragon Wars
Devin Owen has come back from the Dragon Wars a changed Werewolf. For one thing, he’s lost his wolf side as well as most of his desire to live. He spends most of his life doped up to handle the pain from his injured leg.
Lena Knox knew the moment she met Devin that he was her mate. But, she’d been a child at the time and he hadn’t noticed her at all. Now, all grown up she wants Devin to be the wolf she’s waited for. Not that she has a lot of time for longing with life crumbling around her.
A couple of heated encounters draw them together but is it enough to overcome the war wounds they both carry? Or will an outside enemy destroy them before they get the chance to know?
What I do when I’m not being creative
by Rebecca Royce
What I do when I’m not being creativeWhen I’m not being creative, I am a full-time wife, mother, and chauffeur. Does it sound dull? I hope not. So many of us fulfill these roles and yet I think they are not valued all that highly in our society. Anyway, I digress.I have three children, all boys, ages of 3, 5, and 7. They are sweet kids. I cannot, however, get over how many after school activities they have. Now, I am mostly responsible for this. I signed them up for the things they do. Its not like they put themselves in soccer, basketball, football, karate, cooking, piano, and speech therapy. I did. So, as a result of all of the things that I decided, either based on their request of my belief in that they should just do these things, I drive them around like a chauffeur. From about 3 PM on every day.Don’t get me wrong, I really like watching them do most of these things. Swimming, for example, I love to see how the boys are improving. It makes me feel really good about spending the time, and money, to see them take the classes.I also spend as much time as possible with my husband—we try to have date night every Saturday—and see my friends. In addition to all of this, I’ve been on a big weight loss journey and I have to get weighed in once a week to see how I’m doing.I guess that’s it. Its funny to blog about this today. I’ve never really written down what I do in a week—in addition to writing—and I’m pretty sure I sound horribly boring.What do you do?
As a teenager, Rebecca Royce would hide in her room to read her favorite romance novels when she was supposed to be doing her homework. She hopes, these days, that her parents think it was well worth it.
Rebecca is the mother of three adorable boys and is fortunate to be married to her best friend. They’ve just moved to Texas where Rebecca is discovering a new love for barbecue!
She’s in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and tries to use all of these elements in her writing. She’s been told she’s a little bloodthirsty so she hopes that when you read her work you’ll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. Rebecca loves to write series because she loves to see characters develop over time and it always makes her happy to see her favorite characters make guest appearances in other books.
In Rebecca Royce’s world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
