I am thrilled to announce that book 3 in The Skyy Huntington Series – The Pursuit, is officially in editing! I apologize to everyone who has anxiously been awaiting the release, but pregnancy and then a newborn threw me a curve ball. We should have the release coming up very shortly.
Until then please follow me on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated! I will have a big surprise when The Pursuit releases, so I hope everyone enjoys it!
Very excited to reveal the e-book cover and blurb for the upcoming third book in The Skyy Huntington Series!
As a newly recruited Divine Assassin, Skyy Huntington is the first human to ever transition to a vampire in their ranks. And she is finding out very quickly that being a vampire isn’t as easy as all of her friends make it look. Complications with the change occurred that nobody expected. Skyy, her partner Ridley, and all of the Divine Assassins are walking in new territory trying to merge their world of magic with her newly acquired vampire traits.
After the epic battle that sent Elizabeth Bathory into hiding, Skyy and the Divine Assassins are desperately searching for her. Knowing this is their chance to strike while she is in her weakened state, they stumble upon a frightening discovery that she may not be working alone.
While investigating the case, a series of gruesome murders lead them to the heart of London where they come face to face with a new enemy every bit as dangerous as Bathory. As if Skyy didn’t have enough on her plate, the Divine Assassins decide to stay in London and pursue the new enemy while also hunting for Bathory.
As a newly engaged couple, her fiancé Aiden is at her side to support her, whether the Divine Assassins approve of it or not. He is the only person who can keep Skyy’s constant struggles with her transition in check. But will they ever find the breathing room to plan the wedding of their dreams?
And more importantly, recent findings point to the fact that even if they do find and kill Bathory, she might not stay that way….
Just a quick note to let everyone know that both The Lie and The Countess are on sale right now. They will be .99 cents for a limited time, then $1.99 until November 12th! So now is a great time to pick up both books and get caught up before the release of The Pursuit! You can find out more information about the series on my website www.hollyhudspeth.com or jump over to Amazon.
Quick short update here. Been hard at work the past few days on book 3 of The Skyy Huntington Series. I’ve finally come up with an official title! Book 3 will be called The Pursuit. I’ve also decided on the photo I’ll use for the cover, and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out. Thank you to everyone who voted on the poll for who they wanted to see on the cover of the third book. I went with the most votes, and you’re going to see Skyy and Aiden (finally!) in a steamy pose gracing the cover!
Stay tuned for the back cover blurb and more info. I’m having a blast writing this book, it’s so fun now that Skyy has a lot more flexibility with what she can do!
The past few months have been hectic around here! We had a lot of company in and out of town as well as something popping up just about every day it seemed! I am finally, officially back to work on book 3 in The Skyy Huntington Series. I made significant progress today on the book, and finally got to write the chapter that I have been most excited to flesh out. I am so thrilled at how it turned out, and can’t wait for you guys to give me your thoughts. We have another villain in this installment, and it has been an absolute blast to write the character out.
I’m still on schedule to have the book out by the end of the year. I’ll have an exact release date before too long, as well as that back cover blurb I mentioned before. I have also been browsing for that perfect cover shot to hand over to my cover artist so she can work her magic. This book has been so much fun to write, and it’s not even finished yet! I am also still slowly working on another manuscript for a fantasy novel, but I don’t think I’ll reach my goal of having both books done before the end of the year.
Stay tuned, I’ll have more information for you guys soon, I promise! You can follow me here on my blog, as well as Twitter and Facebook. I am also on Goodreads, please feel free to friend me on any of these outlets. and if you liked my series don’t be shy to give me a great review!
I was answering questions for an author interview tonight, and one of them was: Who would you like to see cast in a live action movie based on your book? Which got me thinking! I have always pictured Aiden as either Liam McIntyre from Spartacus (on the left) or Aiden Turner (on the right) from All my Children. Lord knows Mr. McIntyre looks amazing without a shirt on!
I’ve never pictured Skyy as anyone in Hollywood, and with her having auburn colored hair, getting someone with the right coloring to pull it off could be hard. Isla Fisher has the PERFECT hair. She’d need blue contacts though 😉
I could see Gwyneth Paltrow as Fiona maybe…she is a bit too tall but everything else fits how I envision her.
When I wrote Lucius I kind of loosely based him (visually) off of Gary Oldman in Bram Stokers Dracula. The sexy human version, not the creepy old man version. You know…the buff muscular body, and the long brown hair? Though that movie is from 1992 and Oldman isn’t looking quite as buff these days…so no idea who I would choose in his place. Chris Hemsworth maybe? Any excuse to see him on screen is a good excuse in my opinion!
And I could probably see Christian Bale playing Christian. I never get tired of looking at him.
I can’t quite figure out who could play Killian. Or Ridley for that matter. Dreamer is up in the air, total CGI or live actor with CGI wings and flying and all that? She’d need to be someone adorable and bubbly.
So who do YOU see cast in these roles? I’d love to hear from you with your input! You can post your dream cast either as a reply here, on my Twitter @SkyyHuntington or on Facebook
I’d like to say I am sorry for not being on social media much the last few weeks! I have had a really busy summer, with my niece in town for 2 weeks, a mini-vacation down to San Antonio (my first visit there!) and helping my parents pack and move into their newly purchased home…so I haven’t had as much time for writing as I would have liked! I am back on track now, and about halfway done with book 3, with a tentative title of “The Transition”. I am trying to stick with the “The” theme for the series, and it’s been hard to come up with a title for book 3 that isn’t already over used, that still fits the theme of the book. I have to say though, this book has been the most fun for me to write in the series so far. Skyy is going through some MAJOR life changes in more ways than one, and I love seeing her character grow and expand. There is also a new (or not so new…you’ll have to be the judge of that 😉 ) antagonist who’s entering the scene, on top of their search for Bathory so it’s double the fun, horror, and excitement. And of course, romance! As if Skyy didn’t have enough on her hands, she and Aiden are still planning their wedding.
I did have a goal of getting this book out in the fall of this year, preferably by the end of October, but I found out we will have family in town for the entire month of September so I am not sure how things will go. BUT I can promise you that the book will be out by the end of 2013 for sure. I am so excited for this installment in the series and cannot wait to get the feedback from all my readers! Also, the poll is still up here on the blog for who you’d like to see on the cover of book 3 so be sure to chime in if you haven’t already. I just can’t choose so it’s in the hands of the fans and right now, Skyy and Aiden together on the cover is ahead…but there is plenty of time left to vote!
Also, as I mentioned in the last post I did start a Facebook fanpage. It’s been slow going so please spread the word and help me get some more likes. And, a shameless plug here…if you enjoyed my books, please consider leaving a review on Amazon!
Stay tuned here on my blog, Twitter, and Facebook (click the little squares on the top right of my blog!) for more information. I should have the back cover blurb reveal ready in a couple of weeks.
Well, I finally did it. I caved in and re-joined Facebook. I deleted my personal account last year and never looked back, personally I hate Facebook but I can definitely see the benefit of it for a fan-based business. I don’t want my fans to miss any information I put out, and if adding yet one more social media outlet is the answer then I’ll be there with bells on.
So please spread the word and like The Official Skyy Huntington Series Facebook page
And, updates on book 3…I’ve just finished writing a scene that I have been dying to get down on paper for the book. It’s one of the pivotal scenes in the book and it was so fun to write. I can’t wait to get this installment finished and out for everyone to read. I’ll also be adding a poll here on my blog (once I figure out how to do it!) to vote for who you’d like to see on the cover of book 3, so stay tuned! I can’t make my mind up on who I want on the cover, so I’ll let the fans decide! I have so many neat ideas, and my cover artist is amazing so I can’t wait to see what she’ll come up with this time!
Hope that everyone is enjoying their summer, and that you’re staying cool! Have a SAFE and Happy 4th of July!
