I noticed some bloggers who reviewed The Howling Heart were including songs in their posts that reminded them of Riley & Paige. In the spirit of music, I thought I’d list my favorite Top 5 songs that remind me of them and their relationship.
I wasn’t lying when I said Eternal Press doesn’t waste any time. I’m happy to reveal the new official cover for my second novel The Howling Heart. The artwork was designed by Elena Dudina. The model represents Paige, and she’s cloaked like a wolf with a few Varulv in the background. For those of you who don’t know, Varulv is the Swedish word for werewolf.
I found a new Polyvore set for my second novel, The Howling Heart. I especially like this one because the artist mentioned Riley & Paige’s theme song ‘Find A Way’ by Safetysuit in the title and description. Another thing I like to see when people make fanart is who they choose as Paige. Most people choose Alex Pettyfer as Riley since he inspired the story, but I’ve seen many different choices for Paige. This is the first time I’ve seen actress Lyndsy Fonseca as Paige, and I think she’s a great choice! I noticed this artist’s set is a shout-out to me which I think is nice since I usually do that with my readers. Click on the collage to see the set in more detail!
You should know by now that if I see someone make fanart, fanvideos, or fanfiction from my stories that I like to showcase them on my site. Over the last few years, I’ve posted all of the above. I do it because I appreciate when someone enjoys my work enough that it inspires them to be creative. I usually make my own artwork for my stories, so it’s nice when someone else makes it for them. Today, I’m showcasing fanart by Alissa aka bluehybun for my unpublished novel The Howling Heart. I met her on deviantART and she told me she loved my books. I’ve met a couple readers on dA which was a nice surprise. Alissa used Alex Pettyfer and Emily Didonato to represent Riley & Paige. I think she did a wonderful job, and I’m thrilled to know she’ll be making more artwork, but next time for A Rose to the Fallen. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.
This is the 4th Polyvore set I’ve posted for The Howling Heart. It features actors Alex Pettyfer and Alexis Bledel as my characters Riley & Paige. If the creator reads this… thank you for making a nice set for my second novel. I’m glad it inspired you to be creative. Oh, and I hope it gets published soon too!
When I saw these Polyvore sets for my unpublished novel The Howling Heart, my jaw dropped. I think they’re really nice and the creator did a great job. I can definitely see Paige wearing these outfits, especially the 2nd one when she’s in Colorado. The creator knows how stylish my character is; makeup and accessories are a MUST for her. Paige works for Elle magazine after all. I love how detailed she was—there’s so much stuff! She even has a picture of a waterfall in the forest just like in the scene where Riley & Paige had their first kiss. And you can’t forget a picture of Alex Pettyfer to represent Riley since he inspired the story. If the creator ever reads this post, I want to thank her for making these. I’m so glad The Howling Heart inspired her creativity. I’m even more flattered because she felt my novel deserved TWO sets! You can click on them to see them in detail.
I think Tiffany D.’s new mock movie trailer for The Howling Heart is better than the one she created for A Rose to the Fallen. The video is not in HD like she wanted because her computer couldn’t handle the rendering, but it’s still a very good quality. There are more sounds, music, and dialogue. There’s lots of clips of British actor Alex Pettyfer as Riley. It’s only fitting since he inspired the story and the character. The scenes in the beginning with Alexis Bledel as Paige are nearly perfect, and the special effects at the end are really creative. Tiffany’s trailers are the closest my novels will get to being films. This trailer is the most special to me because The Howling Heart is the last novel I’m writing.
Tiffany, if you read this… thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’re truly talented and your trailers have done wonders helping to promote my novels. I know you’re a fan of mine, but I’ll always be a fan of yours too! ♥
I wasn’t going to post this update because I didn’t want to tease anyone who’s anticipating the release of Tiffany D.’s fanmade trailer for The Howling Heart. But I had second thoughts because I know some of you are waiting. I received an email from Tiffany earlier this week and her trailer is finished, but it’s not uploaded to YouTube yet. She was having problems rendering the video because it’s high-definition and her computer is not powerful enough to handle it. She’s on vacation now, so unfortunately she won’t be able to upload the video until she returns home. She said the trailer should be uploaded in early December. It’s going to be on her second channel because she has a couple strikes from YouTube on her main channel. She said she doesn’t want to risk getting another strike and having her main channel deleted. Her trailer for A Rose to the Fallen is on her main channel. I’ll admit the anticipation is killing me! She said I’m really going to like the trailer. I have no doubts because she’s an amazing video editor and her trailers are very realistic. I’ll let you in on a few details she did share with me. The trailer will feature Alex Pettyfer as Riley and Alexis Bledel as Paige. The songs featured will be Within Temptation’s “The Howling” and Safetysuit’s “Find A Way”. I already shared Safetysuit’s song in an earlier post, so here’s “The Howling”. Take a listen and let the trailer countdown begin!
I received an email from Tiffany D. this morning. She told me she’s starting to work on her fanmade trailer for The Howling Heart. She should have it uploaded on YouTube within the next couple weeks. I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it! Her trailer will feature Alex Pettyfer as Riley and Alexis Bledel or Alexandra Daddario as Paige. Tiffany is a very talented video editor and did a superb job on her fanmade trailer for A Rose to the Fallen. I hope her trailer gets me some new readers. She has over 25,000 subscribers! Stay tuned!
I want to thank one of my readers for creating a nice set for The Howling Heart on Polyvore and helping spread the word about my story. The clothing she chose is definitely something Paige would wear. She chose actress Kristen Kreuk to represent Paige. And of course, Alex Pettyfer is used to represent Riley because he inspired the story and the character. If she ever reads this post, I’d also like to tell her that my story isn’t a book. She mentioned she wanted to buy the book. Maybe one day it will be a book, but for now it’s just an online story. Click the collage to see the Polyvore set in detail.
I come bearing more visual and audio goodies for The Howling Heart. I wanted to share some wallpapers created by one of my readers named Jess. I shared them last year on my old LiveJournal and some Alex Pettyfer fansites, but never on my site. I figured better late than never. Plus, I think Jess did a lovely job and they should be shared. She used actress Alexis Bledel as Paige. The lyrics on the second wallpaper are from Riley & Paige’s theme song “Find A Way” by Safetysuit. You can listen to the song below. Enjoy!
I started a new adult paranormal romance entitled The Howling Heart. It’s an original work of fiction that was inspired by British actor Alex Pettyfer. I wrote the hero Riley in his likeness. I’m hosting the story on FictionPress so people can leave reviews. Below is a brief synopsis. If you’re interested, click on the link to read the story.
Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who dreams of making it to the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when she’s given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s untimely death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies where she visited as child, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a serious car accident in the mountains. Battered and bruised, she awakens in the small remote community of Black River and is soon engulfed in the fantastical world of the Varulv…wolves that have been granted the ability to appear human by Máni, the Norse god of the Moon, and Freya, the Norse goddess of Love. Paige is desperate to return home, but she never expects to fall in love with her rescuer Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future…and his heart.
