What a Wolf Desires
Amy Pennza
(Lux Catena Series, #1)
Publication date: November 21st 2018
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Lizette Butler has the only thing she ever wanted—freedom from her pack Alpha, Maxime Simard, and the ability to decide her own fate. She and Max have a turbulent history and a powerful—if unwilling—attraction. Unfortunately, mere distance can’t stop the past from crashing back in to disrupt her life. Nor can it stop the rush of desire that overwhelms her the minute she sees him again. Her body may crave his physical seductions, but her heart will never let her love him.
As leader of the New York territory, Max has everything—wealth, power, and an army of wolves ready to jump at his command. But a mistake he made five years ago may have cost him the only thing worth living for: Lizette. He also knows something Lizette doesn’t—she possesses a rare ability that makes her a target and a prize.
Max can command Lizette to return to the pack, but he can’t command her trust…or her love. And if he can’t heal the rift between them, he may lose her forever.
Q&A:
Q: Where did you get the inspiration to write What a Wolf Desires?
A: I’ve always loved urban fantasy that incorporates romance. I devoured Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series and Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series. They both write strong heroines who aren’t afraid to tell overbearing Alphas when to tone it down—or take a hike. That’s what I like about Maxime in What a Wolf Desires. If you pay close attention, you’ll notice how much he respects Lizette. He doesn’t want to control her. If anything, he revels in seeing her in control.

Q: Is What a Wolf Desires your first book?
A: It’s my second book. I published a book called Ivar’s Prize with a small but respected publisher in 2017. I’ve since republished it under my own publishing name, along with a third book—a contemporary romance called Never Say I Love You.

Q: After being traditionally published, what made you decide to go indie?
A: Time, lol. I’ve had three manuscripts go to an acquisition committee at well-known romance publishing houses, and it’s a very slow process. The wait to hear back has always been six months or more, and that’s on top of waiting for an editor to read your work and ask if you’re okay with them submitting it to the acquisition team. Once you get a contract, it can take another six months to publish your book. I decided I’d rather spend that time writing. Self-publishing has been so liberating. I love working directly with editors and cover designers. When you’re in control of everything, you feel very connected to each book.

Q: What’s your writing process like?
A: I try to write every day. Even if it’s just a couple hundred words. I’m usually good for about 2,000 words per writing session. I also avoid the temptation to edit as I go. That process probably doesn’t work for everyone, but it’s the best method for me. If I let myself go back and self-edit all the time, I’d never finish a book. It’s very true that everyone has their own style of writing.  

Q: What advice do you have for aspiring authors?
A: Write every day. It also helps to have a way to organize your work. I love Scrivener, and I know many other writers do, too. It helps you focus on individual scenes, which means you don’t feel overwhelmed by the whole story at once. At the same time, you can get a visual of the big picture, because all of your scenes are visible along the left side of your program. You can drag and move them around. That’s something you can’t do very easily in a word processing program.

Q: Will Max and Lizette get a sequel?

A: I plan to write some scenes for them, which I’ll put in my monthly newsletter. But for now I’m focusing on finishing Remy’s book, What a Wolf Dares. I have a soft spot in my heart for Remy. I’m really excited to share his story. Then I’ll move on to Dom’s book. I can’t wait for Dom’s world to get turned upside down. He needs a little adventure in his life.
