Hello and Welcome!

A couple of years ago we first collaborated on a Night Huntress fanfic piece, Choices. We created several of our own characters for that story but two spoke to us more than the others. They were both Demons who we brought in to wreck havoc on Jeaniene Frost's vampires. We gave them this amazing backstory with the hopes that we would one day write our own original fiction around them. Real life entered the picture however, and the timing just hasn't been right. Until now.

Since we last collaborated we have both written other fics and toyed with other original stories, but we have a love for all things paranormal and keep coming back to our Demons.

A really great writing tool is NANOWRIMO. For those of you who don't know or have never heard of it, NANO is National Novel Writing Month. It takes place each November and the goal is to write a 50,000 word novel by midnight on November 30. No easy feat.

Mare had amazing success with NANO, writing almost a complete 1st draft of an original fic. (It's awesome and if we're lucky she might post snippets - she likes to tease. Naughty girl.) I did not have as much success but managed to write a 1st draft that eventually became a Fever fanfic.

But it's Fall again and that means NANO is right around the corner. Much has already been written and world building is being tweaked. Our goal is to knock out a first draft. We'll keep track of our progress here and try and get some character summaries up for you this Fall.

Thanks for joining us on this next part of the journey!
Shannon and Mare
