My Journey as a Writer Ambushing Malachi by Electra Gajdos

When I first started writing Ambushing Malachi, the idea was to write a short story to introduce a secondary character Kiara who was going to be the first book in the Eastern Province series. But The Wolvens, a genetically altered half-human and half-wolf male race and their planet Valkas, was unique and needed way more depth then a short story could give, and over ten thousand words were added to the already published product.

While my characters, Jez and Malachi, went through their own changes and journey, I as a writer went through a change writing their story. Regardless of the industry's standards and rules, I’m not a square box and it’s ok to break the rules and not worry or focus on what is considered proper.

Excerpt 3

Using the empty service hallways, he took a direct path to his sister. He was almost to the latte shop when he was caught off guard by a pair of dainty hands wrapping around his forearm and pulling him through the back door of a busy restaurant kitchen.

He only caught a glimpse of the stunning woman with long blonde curly hair before she yanked his head down. When she licked the seam of his mouth, he naturally opened for her.

Then he closed his eyes in ecstasy, tasting the sugary sweet glaze of red berries coating her lips. He didn’t care what part of her he griped, as he pulled her body to his.

She placed a hand on his hip to steady herself, and her scent of wild apple blossoms sent possessive desires through him. A new sense of joy rushed inside his soul as his inner voice chanted, Mine! Mine! Mine!

He growled with displeasure when she took her candy-flavored lips away.

Her dazzling blue gaze met his. “Thanks, Lumberjack. I so needed that.” She used the nickname of the Grizzly Mountain Wolvens, who chose to live in the woods to be closer to their ancestors, the wolves.

She needed that? He needed her…forever. Malachi was sure he’d just found his mate.

She gave him a wink and took a couple of steps back from him.

He frowned, not wanting her to leave his side.

When he reached for her to bring her back into his embrace—where she belonged—he stumbled. His legs suddenly felt like lead.

He grabbed for the nearest dish rack for support. Each time he blinked, the lids of his eyes got heavier. Then he dropped to the floor.

His clouded mind tried to commit all the details of his mate to memory. Her almond-shaped blue eyes were so expressive, and her upper lip was thinner than the bottom.

His gaze traveled down the length of her body, noting the indent in her waistline that fanned out to the kind of hips a male could latch onto while mating.

She knelt at his side. “Sorry, Lumberjack.”
