Blog Tour: "Black Moon" by J.D. Tyler


Welcome to our stop on the Black Moon Blog Tour! It's kind of exciting to me (Anna) because I am a HUGE fan of the Alpha Pack series!!!!




Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas! We are so excited to have you here!!! I (Anna) am a HUGE fan of your Primal Law series so it’s a great honor to get to ask you a few questions about the books.

Hi Anna, and all of you Book Lovin’ Mamas! It’s great to be here today on your awesome blog.

1)What was your inspiration for this series? Where did the original idea come from?

Readers are sometimes surprised to learn that I never imagined I would get the opportunity to write paranormal romance. I was busy writing romantic suspense as my alter-ego, Jo Davis, and enjoying that very much. My publisher actually came to me in 2010 and said they didn’t have an author writing shifters for them, and would I be interested in proposing a series? Would I ever!!
Extremely excited, I went to work on a series outline, and I knew I wanted my wolves to have a military background. What on earth is sexier than Navy SEALs? I also wanted them to have some other abilities, so I gave each Pack member a special Psy gift, such as the ability to start fires, move objects with his mind, see the future or the past, speak in others’ minds, etc. Combined with the shifting and military background, my men are sexy and heroic. The Alpha Pack was born, a black ops team that protects the world from all sorts of lethal human and non-human predators. I’m also working other types of shifters into their world, and I’m absolutely loving my work writing this series!

2) Which character is your favorite from the series?

I would say right now that Sorcerer/Necromancer/panther shifter Kalen Black and Seelie Prince Sariel hold special places in my heart. Both are wounded heroes who are bouncing back from being outcast, a theme that melts me every time.
I have to say, though, that the character who is the most fun to write is Telekenetic/Firestarter Aric Savage (Book 2, SAVAGE AWAKENING)! Aric walks onto the page and steals every scene he’s in, every single time. He’s witty, sarcastic, dynamic, and one of the best heroes I’ve ever written. He’ll never go away, because he’s just too awesome to ignore.

3) Do you use real people as inspiration for the characters in this series?
In this particular series, there wasn’t one real-life man who inspired me right off the bat. Sometimes, though, I find a picture in a magazine of a sexy man who resembles my character and keep it by the computer to ogle as a write. For BLACK MOON, magician/illusionist Criss Angel kept popping into my head as a cool person who’s physically similar, and I peeked at his pic once in a while. To get my motor running, of course!

4) What was the hardest scene in Black Moon to write? Your favorite scene?
That’s a hard one to answer without giving away the big secrets! I guess in general, I can say that the scenes where Kalen is mentally struggling against being seduced to the side of evil by the Unseelie King Malik were among the hardest I’ve ever written. Writing a good man losing his mind, a man who’s never had love and wants it so desperately, and fighting against accepting a twisted form of love from a force who’s sweet-talking him, saying all the right things, was a great challenge. I think I pulled it off, but I’ll let the readers decide!
One of my favorite scenes in the book is the final battle, when Kalen unleashes the full power of his sorcery and commander Nick Westfall’s terrible vision comes to pass… How’s that for a tease?

5) What is next for this series? Can you give us any insider info? And, I have to ask, will Sariel get his own book any time soon?

BLACK MOON releases Tuesday, December 4, and I’m so excited! Here’s the blurb:
A group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top-secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers combating the greatest dangers in the world. But sometime those dangers are more intimate than they bargained for…

Ever since he saved Dr. Mackenzie Grant’s life, panther shifter and sorcerer Kalen Black has had trouble keeping the beautiful doctor out of his thoughts, and his heart. The brush with death awakened an intense passion between them—one that for the first time had the notorious loner letting down his guard.

With the Alpha Pack battling an evil Fae who is slowly gaining control over Kalen’s mind, Kalen can no longer trust his own actions, and he breaks off his affair with Mackenzie in order to keep her safe. But when Mackenzie learns that she is carrying Kalen’s child, no amount of danger will keep her away from the man she loves. To be with his mate and unborn child, Kalen will have to unleash the full fury of his power, and risk destroying them all…

I don’t know whether Sariel will get a story in the near future, but it’s definitely in my mind! Next up in the series is HUNTER’S HEART, the 4th installment in the Alpha Pack series. (Due to be released in late summer/fall 2013) This is Ryon Hunter’s story, and while I don’t have back cover copy yet to share, I can tell readers that this is a “predator” story. It explores the question—what if one of Malik’s and Dr. Gene Bowman’s test subjects, an innocent human man, was an experiment gone wrong and accidentally got unleashed on the world when the labs were destroyed? Can Ryon, Ryon’s mate Daria, and the Pack save this man inside the creature? They’d better hope so. Because the most dangerous predator is the one you can’t see coming…
In spring of 2013, my Sugarland Blue series that centers on the Sugarland, Tennessee Police Department launches with the novella ARMED AND DANGEROUS in April. The next month, in May 2013 is the first book, SWORN TO PROTECT. Both the novella and full-length book feature the popular Detective Shane Ford, who first appeared in my Firefighters of Station Five series! 
After that, I have two more books under contract—the 5th Alpha Pack book, character and story to be announced, and the 2nd Sugarland Blue book, tentative title HOT PURSUIT (could change). HOT PURSUIT is slated to be Detective Taylor Kayne’s story. Taylor is Shane’s partner in Homicide.

Thank you so much for being here today J.D.! It was a pleasure to have you!!!

Thank you very much for inviting me to your blog today, and thank you to the readers for stopping by to chat! Feel free to ask questions! What do you say we give away a book?

PRIMAL LAW, Alpha Pack #1
Founded by a group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top-secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers tasked with eliminating the most dangerous predators in the world. But the gift of their abilities comes at a price…
After a massacre decimates half his team and leaves him crippled, Jaxon Law must relearn how to fight—and battle the anger and guilt threatening to overwhelm him. But when he rescues a beautiful woman who reawakens his primal instincts, Jax is unprepared for the dangers that lie ahead.
On the run from her employer, brilliant lab assistant Kira Locke has evidence that leads the Alpha Pack on a hunt for someone targeting human civilians with Psy abilities. And as Jax and Kira circle both the killer and each other, Jax will have to decide if the deep connection he feels with Kira is worth breaking the ultimate shifter rule—because bonding with Kira means putting his abilities at risk, and they might be the only tools he has to keep his mate alive…

BLACK MAGIC, An ALPHA PACK novella #1.5
An original Alpha Pack novella featuring the sexy sorcerer and panther shifter Kalen Black…

Recruited by the Alpha Pack, Kalen Black is still very much a lone wolf. But when a paranormal creature threatens the life of Dr. Mackenzie Grant, Kalen must use all of his abilities to rescue her. This brush with death excites a passion between them, and after a night of intense pleasure, Kalen leaves Mac with a mysterious gift that just might save her life again.…

SAVAGE AWAKENING, Alpha Pack #2,
A group of former Navy SEALS, the Alpha Pack is a top-secret team of wolf shifters with Psy powers combating the greatest dangers in the world. But sometime those dangers are more intimate than they bargained for...
 
After a mission goes wrong, Aric Savage is taken prisoner. Half-dead and despairing, he makes a stunning discovery: his Pack mate Micah Chase, who was reported dead, is a fellow captive. When the Alpha team goes into full-rescue mode, accompanying them is an absolute stunner with sable hair--and a spine of solid steel.

LAPD officer and Psy Dreamwalker Rowan Chase has one priority: her brother Micah's recovery. Still, she can't help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has--however fleeting their affair is destined to be. But when Aric's life is endangered, Rowan must ask herself what she's willing to sacrifice in the name of love, for the man fated to be her Bondmate.

This is an awesome series!! I have been following the tour as well for a chance to win Black Moon and I have noticed that A LOT of people are entering these contests! It's wonderful that people love the series or want to try the books. Congrats on all the success!
And I hope they contract you for more books because We haven't heard from everybody yet! I'd love to find out what's going on between Sariel and the beautiful doctor! Too bad Sariel's dad is such a d-bag (total understatement!!).
And I LOVE Nick, poor guy. I'd love for him to find his HEA. We still don't know what happened in his past, but I think he needs a good mate, I'd be more than happy to volunteer!
Thanks for the awesome series and for the chance to win!! *fingers crossed*
