I Need a Name For the Main Character in My Next Trilogy!

Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, Avengers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, Spider-Man, Batman, Green Lantern, Punisher, Superman, phew, I’ve seen a lot of superhero movies. With all these superhero movies, how could I go wrong with writing a superhero trilogy? BTW- Fantastic Four totally sucked for me. I LOVED them, but I think they made the movies too hokey. The team should’ve been tougher like the X-Men.

Anyhoo, that’s what I am doing, writing a sort of superhero trilogy. Yes, I’ve hinted at my new series and that’s what I am deep into writing at the moment. But come on, it’s me, I can’t just write a superhero movie book series about some guy in tight blue spandex with a continual smile on his face. Nope, mine’s gotta be a super femme for one, with a sneer and hot temper, and it’s gotta be dark like the Werecat Saga, which means she’s gotta be some sort of monster mutant or something. Don’t worry, she won’t be vampire, mummy, zombie, werewolf, or werecat for that matter… I’ve already sailed that ship.

My superhero is someone cool and she’s as tough as Max from Dark Angel, Selene from Underworld, and like a female version of Eric Drave from The Crow. (Gosh Brandon Lee was soooooo hot.) And I’ve figured out exactly what she is, how she came to be and whose butt she gets to kick. This new series doesn’t take you across the US, it’s more centralized to one area and I won’t have tons of monsters in it. But, as I think about her, I get chills; she’s the baddest, most unlikely superhero you can imagine. And if you continue to read my blog posts, I may just hint at what she is.

Now, I need your help. I need a name for my girl, and for once I am drawing a blank. If any of my two fans are reading this, and you have an idea for a name, tweet it to me. Hey, it could even be YOUR real name. If I like it, I’ll use it, and I’ll even send you free copies right before each book is released. Of course, I've got to okay it with Daniel and Jaime, but those two are pushovers, ;)

So, gimme a name and it may just be the name of the main character in my next trilogy!

I've Wrapped Up the Plotting for My New Trilogy!

Hello sci-fi fans, Jami Lynn here. I wanted to let you know that I have finally wrapped up the plots for three new books, which will comprise my next trilogy. I believe I've already let it slip that I have two new series to release, but I chose the one that has inspired me the most...and it's a doozie. I can't really say much or else the bosses will ground me, lol, but I can tell you that it is dark like Underworld, The Crow, and Escape From New York. In my usual fashion, I've tiptoed around vampires, werewolves, and zombies and created a new beast. But this time, the beast is the hero among a society of miscreants, and besides this monster, my new trilogy won't be full of rabid creatures. Not to worry though, it won't disappoint. In fact, I think it'll be even more thrilling than the Werecat Saga. But I could be saying that because my unusual approach to writing has me living the story as I write the plots and pages. With Feral, Rabid, Nocturnal, and D.N.A., I literally wrote the plots while loosely daydreaming about each story, and I would write them until 3-4 AM in the morning. I find I write amazingly fast if I dwell on the story all day long, then binge write at night.

I will most likely finish the first book in the next month, but I am hearing it's a looooong way off before my next book will be released. I guess I got to give Dru, James, Gordon and the gang time to catch up to me, haha. You hear that, Roger, get to writing more Kill Factor so I can get back in the game! They know I'm only teasing. I love 711 Press and I love my new fans. I promise to keep you all happy :) See you next blog ;)

D.N.A.

Wow, 711 has kept me busy. FYI, my next Movie Book, D.N.A. is completed and I'm already on to two new trilogies. I'm not allowed to release the names of the books or divulge any information at this point because we're well over a year away from release. Daniel and Jaime said I write like an animal and it's now time to pace the releases. I just giggled at their response :) For my readers, I promise it will be worth the wait. The two new trilogies are similar to the Werecat Saga, but unique in their own way, and I believe they will be enough to keep you happy in an apocalyptic setting, yet with new twists and turns and original characters. I must say, the first trilogy I'm working on blows the Werecat Saga away in my opinion. I wish I could tell you more. I'll beg the guys to let me slip you some additional info soon :)
