Any werewolf novels about the people they were?

Asked by AuthorGuy (6points) June 21st, 2010

Are there any books or stories that focus on the people who become wolves, or the people who hunt them, preferably in a scifi and non-romance setting? I have such a novel coming out next year and would like to know if there are any comparable titles.

The “Women of the Underworld” series by Kelley Armstrong is great. There are several books (e.g. Bitten, Stolen) that focus on a werewolf named Elena, how she became a werewolf, the pack structure, etc. I also highly recommend the “Kitty” series by Carrie Vaugn. The first book is Kitty and the Midnight Hour. She’s a late-night talk radio host who becomes a werewolf.

Do you know of any where the people consider themselves truly cursed, in which being a werewolf is not simply an alternate lifestyle with way cool powers but a Really Bad Thing? I know of one, called Mark of the Werewolf, I believe, but the way it worked in that book was very different.

Both the Kitty and the Women of the Underworld series have werewolves who became werewolves involuntarily. Neither of them are too happy about it, and the books describe their very difficult adjustment periods. Other than that, I don’t know of any books that have what you’re looking for.

Ah. You’re doing a market analysis as part of a query or proposal? Or do you already have a publisher? I would suggest checking with one or more librarians, genre fiction fan sites, and—is there a subject-matter index to Publishers Weekly?

The book is in the editing stages now, but it’ll be a while before it comes out. I’m trying to find appropriate venues to promote the thing in the meanwhile. I once found many sites for the Werewolf on the Moon idea, but today they’re all about a comic book, or Twilight.

Get thee to a writers’ conference. There should be lots of workshops on aspects of what you need to know, from rewrite to self-publishing to working with agents to marketing, and an opportunity to sell copies (once it’s printed).
