How to Marry A Werewolf Chapter Titles! 10 Easy Steps (Behind the Magic)

My dearest Gentle Reader,

The full title of my forthcoming novella is…

How to Marry a Werewolf

(In 10 Easy Steps)

A Claw & Courtship Novella

Frankly it’s a bit much to get that meta data uploaded into Amazon and places like that. So the (In 10 Easy Steps) part will only appear  in the print edition fly page and internal layout of the ebooks.

However, I was rather chuffed with myself because the chapters are laid out as “steps” and not chapters, in line with the “10 Easy Steps.”

Because I am a trixie trixie authorbeast. Wanna see?

  • Step 1: Make Yourself Readily Available
  • Step 2: Situate Yourself in an Advantageous Location
  • Step 3: If You Must Be Bait, Be Very Stylish Bait
  • Step 4: Take Every Opportunity To Dance
  • Step 5: Become the Social Butterfly He Wants to Catch
  • Step 6: Take Your Werewolf into The Garden for an Airing, They Must Be Exercised Regularly
  • Step 7: Remember: Either You Are At Dinner or You Are Dinner
  • Step 8: Never, Under Any Circumstances, Make a Public Scene
  • Step 9: Small Tokens of Your Affection Are Always Welcome
  • Step 10: Get Him to the Altar

I do love being clever with my chapter titles. I feel like I am one of nature’s last chapter-wielding authorbeasts.

Meanwhile we are #1 New Release in Steampunk Fiction! Thanks for preordering my darlings!

OUT MAY 13, 2018!

Book News:

Petting Zoo Rejects says of Soulless:

“I’ve never laughed so hard at such an honest (and, because it’s me, nice) portrayal of an antagonistic relationship making that dangerously precipitous voyage from loathing to love.”

    I also love the titles of the chapters of How to Marry a Werewolf.

    But shouldn’t your autobiography have the word octopus in the title?
