Today I'm delighted to welcome Jennifer Snyder, author of Control You, to my blog. As you read her post, you'll probably guess what attracted me to her book.
Best Part of Writing a Companion Series:
You can interlace all the characters throughout the novels along the way, so essentially you never really have to let them go. Their personality still builds with the others and you can keep improving on their H.E.A. you left them with.
- If there is a sexy book boyfriend you’ve created and fallen in love with you can add him in here and there to keep him alive in your heart.
This is what I truly meant with my first answer…once you meet Cameron Green in Control You you’ll understand.
- The town and all the little places the characters visit become more real.
Maybe I should reword this one and say that it makes you wish the places were real. I would love to visit Shooters, the main bar in Norhurst, just because so many things have happened between those walls. Paige’s Closet in Control You would be the best place to shop for clothes too!
- The more stories in the companion series you write, the closer the friends within them seem to become. They also begin to feel like your friends and family too.
This is true. You get used to them being in your head and they feel like friends. By the way, I’m not as insane as that comment just made me sound…this is what we call “writer problems”.
The Coldcreek Series is actually my first attempt at a companion series. The majority of my novels are either continuation series’ or standalones. I’ve had a blast trying this out, though. While I won’t state whether I’ll be writing any more companion series in the future, I can tell you that there will be a total of FOUR novels in this particular companion series—Break You, Control You, and then two others that will release later this year.
Control You by Jennifer Snyder
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult
Kind hearted and naive, Paige Jacobs wants what every girl craves…to be loved. She uses this need to make excuses when her current boyfriend goes from being a tad jealous and slightly overprotective to stalker-ish. She isn’t that girl and Craig isn’t one of those guys. Things are fine. Perfectly fine. Until the moment a dark-haired, tattooed hottie with a snarky mouth walks into her life and tells her she deserves better.
Confident and boldly spoken, Cameron Green has always been the guy bad girls can’t get enough of and all the good girls want to tame. He’s lived a lavish lifestyle filled with drugs, women, and alcohol up until his destructive path finally caught up with him. Now Cameron isn’t sure what to do with himself or how to dampen the longing for something more festering inside of him since coming out of his drug-induced haze. But when he meets a doe-eyed girl who gets past his walls like no other, everything about him clicks into place.
Together the two learn there are emotions that hold within them all the power to control you…
