More Side Characters Begging For Attention

Sometimes side characters just slip right by you while you’re reading or writing, completely unnoticed, and other times they won’t get out of your head. A few of my favorite reoccurring characters started out life as side characters I thought would just quietly pass through a chapter and would never be seen again, like Dr. Sheppard who eventually got his own book (Rethinking Fate).

Every series has different side characters that stand out to me as clearly needing their own books, but I thought I’d share a few of my current favorites…and probably give some hints about what I have in mind for them for the future. Just because teasing is fun.

In my sexy and fun omega series, Romance & Revolutions, there’s this cute little cop who popped up randomly in book two. He’s all wide eyes and embarrassed curiosity and he’s just screaming for a big sexy Dom to take care of him. Of course, the issue with that is going to be that my cute little cop is an alpha and he’s not supposed to want another alpha to dominate him.

His book should be fun because I’ve been talking about him with a friend of mine and we’re both pretty sure he’s a very closeted little who wants a Daddy. This fall is packed with books and ideas already, but I’m hoping to start working on his book around Thanksgiving. Check out the R&R series if you haven’t had a chance because there are a lot of fun side characters in there who need a story.

While my cute cop doesn’t even have a name yet, some characters change their names on me. Leon, who shows up as Destin’s roommate in The Only Way to Dream, started out life as Leo, but I mistyped his name so many times I decided he was trying to make a point and let him be Leon.

He comes across as a bit grumpy and terribly vanilla, but he’s got a few secrets hiding away and I can’t wait to show you his book. It just might be another age play story, and I’ve already got the first few chapters written. I’ll give you a peek at his love interest later this week once I’ve gotten a bit further in the book.

Share in the comments: What side characters would you like to know more about? I love hearing which cuties have caught readers’ attention, and it helps me plan out what I want to work on for the future.

(ps: The audiobook for The Only Way to Love just went live. Check it out here for US and here for UK.)

  1. There are a few in the Leashes and Lace books — Toby the photographer, the sleeping pup and handler, a couple of waiters.

  2. I just finished reading Unconventional and was really hoping Ash and Miller had books coming. Will they be getting a story or stories? I’d also really be interested in Wilder’s friend Gray, Wesley’s friend Bishop, and the sleeping pup & handler from the L&L series.

    1. I don’t know yet… I want to say yes to all of them lol but it’s hard to who’s going to get a story. Bishop will definitely be getting a story and I’m pretty sure about the sleeping pup and handler but other than I’m not sure… I’m glad they caught your attention though.

  3. I am so looking forward to a story on the shy cop that keeps stopping into the store. I have a weakness for alphas that break stereotype.

  4. H’lo…sorry sooo late…New FanGirl here. I am hoping that someday, Zander from the Strength series and Jonathan from William’s Italian restaurant will knock on your door. Fingers crossed.
