Shared worlds -- Crimson City by Liz Maverick!

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

This is the second "shared world" series that Lovespell has done. Last year Susan Grant (also of this group) created the 2176 series and wrote the beginning and ending book.

"Continuity series" are done fairly often in the Silhouette/Harlequin lines -- mysteries, suspenses, some hot storeis, and short stories of shared worlds were very popular in science fiction and fantasy (sf/f). The most popular was, I believe, Thieves World.

Since Lunas are "big" books, I haven't been invited to do a continuity series, but I've heard of them from two of my good writing buddies. I know that they can be very difficult to write!

CRIMSON CITY by Liz Maverick
(Love Spell, July 2005)

Once, this was the City of Angels. The angels are no longer in charge.

From the extravagant appetites of the vampire world above, to the gritty defiance of the werewolves below, the specter of darkness lives around every corner, the hope of paradise in every heart. All walk freely with humans in a tentative peace, but to live in Los Angeles is to balance on the edge of a knife. One woman knows better than most that death lurks here in nights of bliss or hails of UV bullets. She’s about to be tested, to taste true thirst. She’s about to regain the power she’s long been denied. And Fleur Dumont is about to meet the one man who may understand her: a tormented protector who’s lost his way and all he loved.

Theirs is one tale of many. This is Crimson City, where desire meets danger and more than just the stars come out at night.

Liz Maverick created and developed Crimson City as a series for Dorchester. The full slate of rockin’ authors and their books is as follows:

Book #1: Crimson City, by Liz Maverick
Book #2: A Taste of Crimson, by Marjorie M. Liu
Book #3: Through a Crimson Veil, by Patti O'Shea
Book #4: A Darker Crimson, by Carolyn Jewel
Book #5: Seduced by Crimson, by Jade Lee
Book #6: Crimson Rogue, by Liz Maverick

That sounds interesting... but you've got a problem with the link - it seems to want to go to http:///, which isn't valid.
