Why I write romance
When you ask someone what about life is a mystery to them, most will probably say something like religion, who built the pyramids, or whether we are alone in the universe. Well, for me, it is matters of the heart. I have never been in love, so naturally that is what caught my attention and prickled my curiosity. After all, love must be amazing if people are willing to die, or even kill for it . . . right?
Another reason why I like writing/ reading romance is that the author is obligated to give you a happy ending. Life can be depressing and the last thing I want is a book that reads too much like reality. Fiction, for me, is a way to escape reality. Even make my own dreams, or fantasies come true.
I know most people think that romances are corny, but it is hard to write. Getting two people to fall in love, and make it believable is daunting. The fact that most of my characters are immortal just makes it all the more exciting. But convincing my characters to stay together for all eternity, takes a lot of persuading on my part:)

Static Cover Love
I love Murees Dupe's cover for Amaranthine, but I also love S.K. Anthony's Cover for Static! I'm not part of the official cover reveal party, but I thought it deserved a little extra love. Don't you agree?
A Few Hint Fiction Stories
I've been heavily involved in finishing "big" projects, but I've been writing a few hint fiction stories, too. I had a few of them published recently by Espresso Stories. I'm usually one for hope at the end of stories, but these two are a little heavy.
Would you be willing to help me promote one of the following books?
Dynamic Writing 1 - 161 Lessons for Middle School Students - out now and looking for a little love - a tiny post this size would be awesome! (And, if you are interested in reviewing this for free, please send me an e-mail by Friday, 9/25/2015.)
Champion's Destiny - With distracting attention from a former swan prince and her mentors both in harm's way, will Clara be able to trust her team with her family secret as they race to fight the Dark Sisterhood on their terms?
Coming in early December 2015. Later than originally planned, but I'm hoping for "book bash" on December 4th with tiny blurbs, guest posts, or interviews between December 7th and December 18th.
If you have any interest or availability, I would greatly appreciate your help. Please e-mail me at tyreantigger (at) gmail (dot) com.
