STALKING FATE EXCERPT:


Much like the front store, the apartment was empty. What is going on around here? Now very much confused, Senka returned back to the shop. Doing her best to ignore the knot forming in her gut, she scanned the room one more time, but finding nothing out of place or unusual, decided to just head back home and come back later. But first she had to take care of the stag. Not wanting to leave it just lying in the dirt outside the shop, she took advantage of his absence and flashed it inside. She then covered the carcass with a thick piece of canvas she found tossed in a nearby corner. Hoping that would do until she located Duncan, Senka left the shop and headed back to her tent on foot.
Slowly winding her way down the empty paths of vibrantly colored tents, Senka kept her eyes peeled, hoping she would eventually bump into somebody that could tell her where everyone else had run off to. But by the time she made it to the path that housed her and her sister’s tent, still without seeing another living soul, Senka was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Fighting back the urge to panic, she picked up her pace, and dashed the last bit of distance to her bright green and gold tent.
“Chloe?” Freezing just inside the flap, she stared into the empty space. “Chloe!”
A quick scan of the room, proved everything inside seemed to be in order, with the exception of her sister’s unmade bed, which was not that big of a concern, seeing as Chloe rarely ever made her bed. What was a concern was what she spotted on the dresser next to the bed. With slow and deliberate movements, Senka walked toward the dresser and picked up the gold chain and pendant Chloe placed inside a tiny ceramic teacup every night before she went to bed. Dangling the thin chain before her, Senka’s heart rate doubled as she stared at the white rose pendant that matched perfectly to the one she wore hidden beneath her clothing.
The matching jewelry had been a gift from their mother, and was one of the only things they had left of her. But while Senka frequently considered tossing hers into a river and watching it disappear into oblivion, much like their mother had done, Chloe absolutely cherished hers. Foolishly believing that one day their mother would return and take her with her, Chloe wore it every day without fail so she could prove to their mom that she never gave up hope in her.
Knowing full well that Chloe would never leave the necklace behind on purpose, Senka tightened her grip on the chain and dashed out of the tent in a panic. “Chloe!! Chloe where are you!” Rushing down the path as fast as her legs could carry her, Senka continued to scream into the silence of the night. “Lady Zae, Duncan, anyone. Someone please answer me.”
But not a single soul answered her call. At a loss as to what to do and desperate for answers, Senka turned down the path leading to the camp square, thinking surely if there was anyone still in the camp, they would be there. However the moment she rounded the last corner leading into the open pavilion, Senka ran face first into a rock hard surface and fell flat on her tail.
“Ouch.” Groaning and rubbing her forehead, Senka glanced up and frowned. “Duncan? What the…” she began, but hesitated when she realized the elder Shifter was standing in front of her wearing nothing but a cloth wrapped around his waist. “Ummm, Duncan, why are you naked?”
Ignoring her question, Duncan reached down with one hand and yanked her to her feet. “By the stars girl, where have you been? I’ve been worried sick about you.”
Unable to make out if he was angry or concerned by the tone of his voice, Senka furrowed her brow. “Um, I told you I was going hunting,” she answered, doing her best to keep her eyes on his face and not the stunningly gorgeous half-naked body in front of her.
“Yes, but why were you gone for so long?” he snapped, pulling her attention back up to his angry scowl.
Clearing her throat, Senka blinked rapidly and focused her attention on her uncharacteristically emotional friend. “I, uh just went out further than I normally do, almost to the edge of the Western border.” Pausing, she glanced up, into his softening expression, “I killed a stag and left it in your shop. But I had to flash inside. I know you said to never to do it again, but I didn’t know where you were and….”
“No, no, it’s alright.” He interrupted, pulling her into his embrace. Stunned by the sudden and highly unusual display of affection, Senka froze. “I’m just glad you are safe.”
Finding it hard to breath in his tight hold and finding it slightly unnerving to be this close to her loincloth wearing friend, Senka placed her hands on his chest and pushed gently away. “Duncan, I missed you too old man, but to be honest, this is getting a little awkward for me.”
Taking the hint, Duncan released his hold. “My apologies. It was not my intention to make you uncomfortable.”
“Well, while we are on the subject of one’s comfort,” Senka paused, gesturing to his loin cloth. “Am I to expect this attire on our next hunting expedition? Cause, honestly I am kind of digging the savage look on you.”
Furrowing his brow, Duncan followed her gaze down, looking as if he had forgotten he was not wearing clothing. “Most Shifters wear these when we know we are going to shift so we do not rip our clothing… otherwise we would have no clothes left.”
“You were shifting?”
Suddenly struck with the image of a camp full of half-naked Shifters, Senka blinked rapidly and rubbed her eyes in an attempt to clear her thoughts. Trying to recall the last instance she could remember him shifting, she had already traveled several years back in time when she suddenly remembered why she had been looking for him to begin with. “Oh Duncan, have you seen Chloe? I can’t find her… or anyone else for that matter… anywhere.”
Immediately upon mention of her sister, Duncan flinched as if she had struck him. “I, I, I…. I um, think you should talk to Lady Zae about that Senka.”
His reaction, along with his inability to make eye contact with her, instantly rekindled Senka’s temporarily forgotten fears. Heart clenching painfully in her chest, she did her best to keep her composure as she stood before the beast of a man and took his massive hand into her own.
“Duncan, look at me.” She demanded, forcing his pale grey gaze to return to her. “I am asking you as my friend. Please tell me where my sister is.”
Staring down at her, Duncan opened and closed his mouth several times, as if debating whether or not to answer her. Then, with a pained expression, he inhaled deeply and spoke the words that would send her world crashing down around her.
“Senka… Chloe is gone.”

AUTHOR INTERVIEW:

Who is your intended audience?
All my books are written with a new adult audience in mind. Being a paranormal romance it of course is geared toward fans of that genre, although lovers of fantasy novels will likely find it appealing as well since all my books take place in a fantasy/dystopian world ruled by paranormal creatures.


Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
This is such a hard question! Characters are like your kids, you love them all so much, just all for different reasons, LOL. For example, I love Senka (the main female lead) for her fierce independence. She is tough and used to handling things on her own, but she is not afraid to show emotion either. Duncan (male lead) has made mistakes in his past, like we all have, but he is trying his hardest to move forward and change. And then there is Ignacio, the chain smoking, cage fighting Shifter that was added as a fill-in character. But he used his southern charm and blatant honesty to work his way further into my story and he then he sort of took on a life of his own. (I can promise you definitely haven’t heard the last of him) ;)


Give us an interesting fun fact about your book.
Interesting fact, Duncan (my male lead) was supposed to be a fill-in character.
In the original version of Stalking Fate, Senka was going to cross into the Shifter lands alone and run into a rouge Shifter named Cadyn, who would lead her the rest of the way to her sister and they would fall madly in love. Duncan was just going to be a friend and sort of father figure that showed up in the beginning of the story and just helped her get to the border. However the more I wrote about Duncan, and his relationship with Senka, the more it made sense to make him the one she would fall in love with. So over a quarter of the way into the book, and much to the annoyance of my friends who felt I had lost my mind, I scrapped my original idea, completely changed directions, and made Duncan the lead.


What other books are similar to your own?
Although hers are more of an urban fantasy, I absolutely love Dannika Dark’s Seven series and would love to think my books are similar to hers. Like she did with that series, I plan to write several books about the characters from this same small camp where Duncan and Senka are from. Each book will be a standalone novel, although there will be links connecting them all together. Also much like hers, my Shifter romance focuses mainly on the characters as people who just happen to have a magical gift, to me that makes it easier for the audience to relate to them as their story progresses.


What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?
Oh my. For this book I actually researched how long it takes a body to decompose. Even went as far as to look up the various stages of that decomposition and images. Certain I am on a watch list somewhere now.


How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
My website www.krfajardo.com. From there you can send me a message and I will get back to you usually in a couple of days.
Also, for a more in depth updates on my books and sales follow me on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/authorK.R.Fajardo
Or my Amazon author page  http://amzn.to/2wz8Ytj


What can we expect from you in the future?
I am currently working on outlining a new series of NA urban fantasy/ paranormal romance, so look for that hopefully in the next year or so. I also have started putting together ideas for a series of books that will be a prequel to my paranormal fantasy/romance series “The Shadow Chronicles”.


What are you working on now?
Right now I am working on writing the fourth and last book in my Shadow Chronicles series. While working on that I will start putting together ideas for the urban fantasy/ paranormal romance so that writing can begin on that in the next few weeks or so.


What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Share and Review. Nothing helps build a book’s momentum more than just word of mouth. So if you like a book, mine or anyone else’s, the best thing you can do for that author to help build its popularity is spread the word to people you know. Then of course there are reviews. Most readers don’t know just how much their reviews, even if they aren’t so great, can help an author out. Not only does Amazon promote books with a higher number of reviews over others, certain advertising sites won’t even considering sharing a book is it doesn’t have a minimum number of reviews posted.
