I'm happy to welcome back L.S. Broomfield to my blog for another wonderful post for the Sisterhood of the Traveling Blog!
In your upcoming works in progress or new releases, what did you find the most challenging to write, or what gave you the most enjoyment accomplishing, aside from finishing the writing?
The most challenging to write was the story of Emiliana Gallo and Donato Cruentus. I decided that in order for people to love Dragos Cruentus they needed to see his roots; to feel his lineage. So I began to write and initially it flowed easily as most of the details had already took root in my mind but the further I stepped into the Cruentus early years it became murky and the love story began to be overshadowed by Donato’s father, Arturo.
It transformed into something I couldn’t even have imagined and though it was completely off kilter than my original idea it jived and I fell in love with the messed up love story they had and the turmoil they had to endure.
It was a magical world that even managed to suck me into it. It was a challenge over all to write but the moment the final words were typed this overwhelming sense of accomplishment washed over me. I look forward to writing the story of Dragos as well, he’ll be fun.
I would have to say the one that was most surprising to write was “Souls caught fire” that will debut jointly with Ashley Nemer’s “Wolf Pack” in “Soul Mates”. She had mentioned writing a joint book, two shorts together and I was down with it but ideas escaped me. That was until I saw a black and white 1950’s feel photo showcasing this dark hair woman in a smokey bar. I was instantly sold and knew immediately I needed to write her. I love when something takes you over so completely that you have no choice but to let them speak.
Fine L.S. Broomfield
