What is the story about?
The Dragon’s Valentine by C.D. Gorri tells the tale of Callius Falk, a newly freed Fire Dragon, and Winifred Castillo, a Werewolf from the Macconwood Pack.
Synopsis: After five hundred years of servitude, Dragon shifter Callius Falk and his three brothers are finally freed from their bonds. And Callius has one mission, to find his true mate.
Winifred Castillo spends her days working as an assistant realtor for Maccon City Estates and her nights tending bar at The Thirsty Dog.
She’s completely sworn off men. For good!
But what’s a Werewolf to do when a dark-haired stranger with golden eyes and rippling muscles tells her she is his mate?
Who is the main characters?
Callius and Winifred, or “Fred” as she is known, are the main characters.
How did the story come to you?
I am always looking to expand on the fictional world I’ve created with my very first book, Wolf Moon, the Grazi Kelly Universe. This was the perfect opportunity for me to introduce a new supernatural creature into the universe and I was thrilled to do it.
Did you have to research for this novel. If so, why and what did you learn?
I am a bit of an info junky and research is a big part of my job as an author. I try to bring as much realism as possible for paranormal fiction in my books. For this book, I did quite a bit of geographical research, some language translation, and I found myself visiting quite a few blogs about artisan liquor making, tapestry weaving, and lizard anatomy.
Do you relate to your character? Is your protagonist anything like you personally?
I am not sure about that, but I’d like to think I am as determined as Callius and as stubborn as Fred!
What made you write this character; what made them important to you or made you want to tell their story?
Once I was set on the idea of them as a couple the story about how they got together was the ideal place to begin the Falk Clan books.
Is there anything you specific want readers to know about this piece of work?
Callius and Fred are near and dear to me because of the level of fantasy I am able to get into with them, especially Callius. In the edition for the amazing Claiming My Valentine anthology I was limited to 15K words to tell my tale. It was not an easy task, but I think I managed to get a real complete story that I am hoping readers of paranormal romance will enjoy!
When will the novel be available for purchase?
You can pre-order the anthology now for just $0.99, all proceeds will go to St. Jude’s Children hospital and I could not be more excited to be a part of this awesoem project!
