I'm stuck on the hero's name for the next book. I'd originally called him Luke, but it's just not working for me.

So, the two names I'm currently tossing up are Wilder and Damon. Any thoughts? Preferences? Other suggestions? (It needs to be a 'strong' name)

All help appreciated!HugMe

CharmedGirl
September 6th, 2007, 01:25 AM
Wilder and Damon sound great!

A suggestion would be Clark or Carlos!

Hi Keri :wazzapp: I sooooo enjoy Riley and Rhoan and all the other characters in your great series.Keep up the great work! I have always liked the name Mitch and/or Mitchell. That implies strength!! Jake does too! But whatever you come up with will be good, I am sure. :)

KeriArthur
September 6th, 2007, 05:23 AM
Mitchell was my maiden name, and we quite often got mitch as a nickname. I like it, but I just couldn't write a hero with that name
:lol:

DavidsGirl841444
September 6th, 2007, 08:58 AM
I am with Wilder I like that name you don't hear it alot and it implies wildness about a person. Plus sounds sexy.

CharmedGirl
September 6th, 2007, 09:51 PM
All though I'm for Wilder rather than Damon. What about Jackson!

MonaDee
September 6th, 2007, 10:46 PM
Hmmm ... a strong name

Sebastian

Did I spell that right?

Dani
September 6th, 2007, 10:48 PM
CharmedGirl, as much as I like the name Jackson, it's too close to Jack to suit the me. LOL

I like Wilder too, but I've got a few suggestions as well. How about Duncan? I like that one the best. Jaden and Keiran are some other good ones too.

Those are just my suggestions though. :lol:

CharmedGirl
September 6th, 2007, 11:50 PM
It is too close to Jack you're right there Irishwolf. I certainly like Jaden that would be a great name for the hero.

IrishCreamDreams
September 7th, 2007, 01:04 AM
It's understandable why you wouldn't use Mitch, Keri. How about "Alan" then? Or "Neil"? Or "Lee" I know these names are rather conventional, but they're manly names without being too cheesy. I swear, I am so tried of reading books where the hero's name is Lucan, Lucius, Lycan, or some other variant of, with the letter "L" ! Hippy

KeriArthur
September 7th, 2007, 01:15 AM
I like Jackson, but I have so many Jack's already...

I'm actually leaning towards Mac right now. It's a good, strong name.

CharmedGirl
September 7th, 2007, 01:35 AM
Mac definitely sounds like a strong hero character. Good choice with that one Keri!

DavidsGirl841444
September 7th, 2007, 09:42 AM
Mac's kinda cool. Sounds like duncan from highlander how joe calls him mac and stuff.

Dani
September 7th, 2007, 02:58 PM
Mac's a great name. Strong with out being cheesy like a few others I've heard on other characters in other books. :roflmao:

frnd4vr
September 7th, 2007, 07:01 PM
I think that is good....and a bit different than the others used in the series so far.

Definitely not Mac. That harkens too strongly to the Highlander Series. :arghhhh: For me, it would give me a preconceived notion of what the character looked like before you even wrote a word. And I would hear a Scottish accent.

Also you might consider Stryker. That is a pretty strong and cool name.

Teresa

DavidsGirl841444
September 8th, 2007, 10:55 AM
Stryker seems nice and not usual.

KeriArthur
September 9th, 2007, 05:01 AM
stryker was the name of one of the main guys in a hugely popular 1960's scifi tv series. I like it, but I don't think it wise to go there :)

Dani
September 9th, 2007, 04:15 PM
Keri, what about Garret? That's a strong name. :whoohoo:

CharmedGirl
September 9th, 2007, 04:48 PM
stryker was the name of one of the main guys in a hugely popular 1960's scifi tv series. I like it, but I don't think it wise to go there :)

What sci fi series are you talking about Keri? Inquiring minds want to know :lol:

Dani
September 9th, 2007, 04:59 PM
Yeah Keri, what show was it. :whistling:

I remember a Lt. Stryker on a show, but I can't remember the name of the show. :lol:

KeriArthur
September 9th, 2007, 05:40 PM
huh. Well, you learn something every day. The show I was thinking of was UFO, a British scifi show done by gerry anderson (thunderbirds guy) in 1970. I always thought the main guy in the show was called stryker, but according to the website, it was straker. Must have been the accent that confused me
:lol:

Dani
September 9th, 2007, 06:11 PM
That's cool Keri! It happens to all of us at times. :lol:

Celtic Harley
September 10th, 2007, 08:45 AM
Let us know when to stop shooting names at you <like when you have started the first chapter,lol.

I am partial to Brey or Ty as my suggestion.

Celtic Harley

NessyPerth
September 11th, 2007, 02:47 AM
I love Brody, i just think it's a sexy name. Or Harley is cool too LMAO
Or Dominic

NessyPerth
September 11th, 2007, 03:02 AM
Or Blayze, Braxton. Right on the B names here LMAO
oooo Brock

bittenbybooks
September 11th, 2007, 03:08 AM
Hey there!

If I had to choose, I would go w/Damon. That being said, I really liked the name you mentioned on your blog. Kai

Can't wait to hear what you decide!

Howsabout "Travis", "Trevor", or "Trey"? :)

DavidsGirl841444
September 11th, 2007, 08:58 AM
No idea what show you all talking about.

katiesue
September 11th, 2007, 09:08 AM
:unsure: New to all this but LOVE the books can't wait to here more on Riley.The names are all great names the name that stick out for me is Zander it's a strong name also my sons name.

Dani
September 11th, 2007, 11:32 AM
No idea what show you all talking about.
Chica, it's not a show. Keri wants help with names for a new character in the Riley books. :lol:

KeriArthur
September 11th, 2007, 05:37 PM
Howsabout "Travis", "Trevor", or "Trey"? :)

My hero's name in destiny kills is Trae--which is another way of spelling Trey
:)

katiesue
September 11th, 2007, 06:21 PM
I know it's not a show.I've read the books.I think Zander is a strong name for a hero.

Dani
September 12th, 2007, 12:23 AM
Katiesue, I was telling DavidsGirl that it wasn't a show, not you, so I appologize if it seemed like it was directed towards you. :lol:

alimello
September 12th, 2007, 03:16 AM
I have always like the names Coaltan, Xander and Connor they seem like strong names to me.

CharmedGirl
September 12th, 2007, 03:35 AM
I've got one Logan just cause that's what Wolverine's name is in X-Men and he's a strong character. LOL

bittenbybooks
September 12th, 2007, 02:14 PM
Keri,

When do you need to decide by? I can't wait to hear what you decide to use. :)

Rach

DavidsGirl841444
September 12th, 2007, 04:11 PM
Oh you know could be more torture if you don't tell us the name untilt he book comes out.

CharmedGirl
September 12th, 2007, 06:29 PM
:huh: That better not happen Davidsgirl cause I wanna know the minute Keri decides otherwise it'll drive me round the twist :lol:

bittenbybooks

:huh: That better not happen Davidsgirl cause I wanna know the minute Keri decides otherwise it'll drive me round the twist :lol:
LOL this means Keri holds absolute power over you. he he

CharmedGirl
September 12th, 2007, 07:07 PM
It's her books that hold the power over me. They are just so addictive. LOL

Dani
September 12th, 2007, 08:40 PM
I can agree with that CharmedGirl! Her books are very captivating. :notworthy:

CharmedGirl
September 12th, 2007, 08:53 PM
Riley leads such an exciting life with Quinn, Kade, Ben, Kye and being a guardian for the Directorate. Sometimes I wish my life was filled with that kind of excitement not that my life isn't exciting already but Riley's life would be great sometimes. LOL

bittenbybooks
September 12th, 2007, 09:08 PM
I totally agree the books are action packed. I can't wait for the next installment!

CharmedGirl
September 12th, 2007, 09:14 PM
The next installment isn't until September 2008...but I read on Keri's blog that she has finished the first edits for Riley 6. Woohoo!

Dani
September 12th, 2007, 09:17 PM
:whoohoo: That's a very good sign!! I'm getting excited again! :biggrin:

CharmedGirl
September 12th, 2007, 09:28 PM
:yes: Hopefully she won't have to go through too many edits and then the book will be out sooner. I am so good at wishful thinking :lol:

bittenbybooks
September 12th, 2007, 10:42 PM
I have it book marked on my PBS etc. Can't wait!

CharmedGirl
September 12th, 2007, 10:54 PM
I think everyone that likes Keri has her blog in their favourites I know I do. I also have all my favourite authors in there. LOL

KeriArthur
September 13th, 2007, 12:14 AM
I'll probably decide on the name in the next week or so. Right now, I'm doing the second lot of edits to Riley 6 (which isn't as bad as I thought it would be )
:lol:

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 12:19 AM
Well we're all glad that the edits for Riley 6 aren't all that bad because we're all really anxious to read it! LOL

KeriArthur
September 13th, 2007, 12:24 AM
one of my crit buddies just proof read it. Her comments were "freaking excellent' and 'one hell of a hot sex scene'.

Of course, I'm not going to tell you with whom....

Cheerleader

NessyPerth

*Snorts* You are such a tease Keri!

Oh Nessy...I told you she wouldn't be going the battery way. :roflmao:

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 12:34 AM
The only way to go is with Quinn or Kade. LOL

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 12:37 AM
well thank god for that cause battery operated is soo not as fun :roflmao:

KeriArthur
September 13th, 2007, 12:42 AM
Riley's definitely not a battery type of girl.
:lol:

and yep, I will tell you the name, once I decide it :)

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 12:44 AM
wooohoooo on both accounts

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 12:46 AM
Riley doesn't need the battery option she has got way too many fine men to choose from. LOL

Dani
September 13th, 2007, 12:49 AM
Ain't that the truth Bec! :yes:

I can't wait to see what you decide Keri!! :biggrin:

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 12:51 AM
yeah power to her! greedy girl :roflmao:

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 12:52 AM
What a life so many great men to choose from. What would your choice be - Quinn, Kade, Ben or Kye. I'm thinking all four but I don't want to appear too greedy. LOL

Dani
September 13th, 2007, 12:54 AM
We have to share the men! :lol:

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 12:54 AM
hmmm i'd choose each of them for different reasons. I bet no one could possibly guess why i'd choose Kade, Hehehehe

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 12:56 AM
I can think of the most obvious reason for choosing Kade but I'm going to let it remain secret for now. LOL

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 12:57 AM
i was talking about his charming personality of course!!!! uh hm

Dani
September 13th, 2007, 12:58 AM
Yeeeeaaaah, o-k-a-y Nessy!:lol:

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 01:00 AM
That's not what I was thinking about. I was thinking about his nice muscles. LOL

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 01:02 AM
oh yeah absolutely charmedgirl

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 01:06 AM
There are other qualities Kade has to but I'm not going to say just let I'm going to let you figure them out when I send him your way Ness. LOL

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 01:10 AM
what do you mean send him my way? i already got him. geez you must have an imposter :roflmao:

Dani

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 01:18 AM

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 01:20 AM
I must have his twin or clone cause this Kade model walks, talks and does all the right things just like in Keri's books. LOL

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 01:22 AM
ahhh haaa haaa thats the only way to have him :roflmao:

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 01:25 AM
Dang I want the real Kade I don't want the twin or clone anymore it just isn't the same. LOL

NessyPerth
September 13th, 2007, 01:30 AM
hey if he looks like kade, talks like kade, walks like kade......dont be complaining LMAO

CharmedGirl
September 13th, 2007, 01:36 AM
Hmmm I'm not complaining but I think he might be battery operated cause he's starting to fade away. LOL

DavidsGirl841444
September 13th, 2007, 09:15 AM
Well who cares clones or twin its all good and sweet. Kade is all the same to me.

Dani
September 13th, 2007, 09:44 PM
Oh, spare me! I don't need to read about all this.:roflmao:

KeriArthur
September 16th, 2007, 05:32 PM
he's a sea dragon though. I'm thinking Mak at the moment. It's a good, strong, simple name :turned:

NessyPerth
September 16th, 2007, 08:13 PM
ooo a sea dragon, i like the sound of that and Mac sounds good Keri. Cant wait to read this book ;)

CharmedGirl
September 16th, 2007, 08:18 PM
Mac is a very cool name for a sea dragon. The story should be interesting.

bittenbybooks
September 16th, 2007, 11:04 PM
I like Mak too. Though for some reason Kai is stuck in my brain. Sounds more "water" like. LOL
And sexy!
:euro:

Dani
September 16th, 2007, 11:13 PM
As soon as I hear Mac I start thinking of a sexy Irish or Scottish hunk!

I think that Mac would be a great name for a sea dragon. You're making this book sound better and better Keri! :biggrin:

DavidsGirl841444
September 17th, 2007, 07:42 PM
Sea dragon that would be shway.

CharmedGirl
September 18th, 2007, 12:30 AM

Christina, this book is already out and Destiny Kills is set to be out in February unless something happens. You should have pleanty of time to read it befor Keri's book comes out.


Is there a board here where you keep a running list of what you are reading etc. ?
There isn't a thread that I know of that has a running list of what we're reading. I'll see about getting one together for us, but for right now if you want to let everyone know what your're reading you can put it in your signature line (like Nessy's doing and I'm going to do) until I come to a solution.

Mak is no longer a sea dragon. He's morphed into a fire dragon. I think it'll suit the story better.

Of course, since I'm still on the first chapter, anything could happen.
:lol:

NessyPerth
September 19th, 2007, 06:39 AM
wooohooo keri sounds great. eeeeek cant wait. Just read ya blog, it's a shame your muse isn't working for mercy burns, but i cant say i'm disappointed it's working for riley 7. You know me, just love the riley books. ;)

ooo i should be recieving lifemate connections tomorrow *rubbing my hands together* just cant wait!

:lol:
Oooooh, I love fire dragons and that is too cool. The muse must be taking hold of the story from you and thinking about the way she wants it to go.

I have to agree with Nessy about not being dissapointed the muse is working for Riley 7. We all love Riley's story.

DavidsGirl841444
September 19th, 2007, 03:37 PM
Yeah Riley 7 keep it up. Maybe much closer then a year. Fire dragons are cool.

NessyPerth

wooohooo just got Lifemate Connections this morning, Half way thorough it and it is AWESOME. But i didn't expect anything less from Keri:notworthy:

Read ya blog Keri, that muse still being tempermental?:nono: We should have words with her:roflmao:

Dani
September 21st, 2007, 12:59 AM
Congrats on getting your book!:whoohoo:Now we can chat about it once you finish it.

CharmedGirl
September 21st, 2007, 02:35 AM
We should definitely have words with the muse. The muse just won't help Keri out at all with writing both books at the same time. The muse definitely needs speaking to. LOL

DavidsGirl841444
September 21st, 2007, 12:05 PM
Maybe the muse would like a good nap and a juice box then meybe get to what it needs to do.

CharmedGirl
September 22nd, 2007, 10:09 AM
The muse probably needs time out to have a bit of fun and then he or she will feel in better control to help Keri write a fantastic novel.

I'm stuck on the hero's name for the next book. I'd originally called him Luke, but it's just not working for me.

So, the two names I'm currently tossing up are Wilder and Damon. Any thoughts? Preferences? Other suggestions? (It needs to be a 'strong' name)

All help appreciated!HugMe
Keri
What about Jake for the next hero's name or Carlos

DavidsGirl841444
September 23rd, 2007, 04:38 PM
Yeah but Carlos if he is hispanic in any way but I like Jake.

CharmedGirl
September 23rd, 2007, 06:52 PM
Jake is too close to Jack though and she already has a Jack in another series. LOL

Dani
September 23rd, 2007, 07:29 PM
Two Jacks infact! One in the Riley series and one in Lifemate Connections: Eryn.

CharmedGirl
September 23rd, 2007, 07:38 PM
I haven't read Lifemate Connections. I didn't know there was a Jack in there :lol: but now I think I should order the book and read it because I've heard it's really good.

NessyPerth
September 24th, 2007, 04:30 AM
oh yeah good is definately an understatement. I mean it's set in a world where men out number women 10 to 1. So being a total hussy is encouraged. Wooohooo :roflmao: and the guy in it is definately hot stuff! but i cant really tell you too much more if you havn't read it. So go get it so we can talk about it LOL

CharmedGirl
September 24th, 2007, 08:00 AM
OMG is being a hussy really encouraged?

The sights are set way too high if it is men outnumber women 10 to 1. LOL

Dani
September 24th, 2007, 08:05 AM
Oh yeah!! They hero is a total hottie!! You have to read it. :hellobaby:

CharmedGirl

I so love when the hero is a hottie it makes it more interesting. LOL

Well you have to join the Yahoo group to become an official hussy. You even get a membership card to prove you're one. :lol:

CharmedGirl
September 26th, 2007, 05:55 PM
I'm a member. WooHoo an official membership card that sounds pretty cool. LOL

Dani
September 26th, 2007, 06:04 PM
All you have to do is email the girls about one. The info about the membership card should be in the information that gets sent to you when you join the group. :biggrin:

CharmedGirl
September 26th, 2007, 06:17 PM
Hmmm I better read my information a bit better then shouldn't I? LOL

I'm stuck on the hero's name for the next book. I'd originally called him Luke, but it's just not working for me.

So, the two names I'm currently tossing up are Wilder and Damon. Any thoughts? Preferences? Other suggestions? (It needs to be a 'strong' name)

All help appreciated!HugMe

I like the name Wilder, its different. I also like Micah, Mitch, Jason. Either way you go, you pick good names for your characters.
Good luck!

DavidsGirl841444

Totally right there.

Ti3
October 12th, 2007, 03:28 PM
Hey Keri...I got the name Rain from another book I just read. I quite think thats sexy as well as Wilder. As someone mentioned earlier, Wilder certainly implies a wild nature perhaps plus its sexy. I loved the name Rain in the recent book I just read. Course I fell in love with the book as well so I guess the main character became a complete sexy symbol. Maybe why I like it so much...hahaha...Anways...Good luck on the name search...Kieran was another cool name in the book I just read...shrugs...or the name Sole or Soul is cool too...lol...im full of crazy idea's

bittenbybooks
October 12th, 2007, 05:31 PM

Dani
October 14th, 2007, 09:15 PM
At last update about the name she was stuck on the name Mac, so we'll have to see what she decided when she posts another update. :biggrin:

Welcome to CTR DrkCherry! Glad you found the forums here and hope you have a good time reading and posting.

CharmedGirl
October 15th, 2007, 01:25 AM
Keri was pretty sure she was going with Mac but we will have to wait and see.

Welcome to CTR DrkCherry. Great to have you hear with us. We are a really great bunch and you'll enjoy posting. We do get a little off topic sometimes but that's always a good thing. LOL

Can't wait to see her pick.

KeriArthur
October 15th, 2007, 06:27 PM
yeah, it's Mak for the moment. Of course, I've only just got to the scene with him in it, so he might yet decide he hates that name. :turned:

Dani
October 15th, 2007, 06:32 PM
Cool! Thanks for the update on the name.

I hope that the muse is doing better by you now with this book, not that I minded her wanting you to work on Riley 7. :lol:

KeriArthur
October 15th, 2007, 06:36 PM
I'm not working on either at the moment--the Darkest Kiss edits are in, so I had to drop everything for those. :turned:

Dani

Are these still the first rounds of edits or the second round?

charra
October 15th, 2007, 09:54 PM
Hi I love the name Marek its different sexy and my daughter says the name is hot. I have not seen it in any book I have read and it would be a great name for a hero.

Dani
October 15th, 2007, 10:14 PM
Keri just said today that she's still with the name Mak so far, that is of course unless he decides he hates the name. :lol:

Yes very good I am with that bandwagon to get those over with first. Deal with hating the name later. Plus mark is nice.

Hey everyone! Haven't been on the board for a while so just trying to catch up w/ all the gossip.

I like the name Wilder but I also was looking recently through boy names online and fell for the name Tegan.

Dani
October 17th, 2007, 08:30 PM
Hey Goofyangel! Glad to see you back.Cheerleader

Tegan is a great name, in fact, my cousin's daughter is named Tegan, so it's not just a boy name it seems. Maybe "Mak" (that's what Keri's using now) will like one of these names here better and make her change it. :lol:

DavidsGirl841444
October 18th, 2007, 09:18 AM
But Tegan doesn't sound strong andwell guy like mostly sounds like a nickname for a boy.

CharmedGirl
October 21st, 2007, 08:13 PM
I like Mak it sounds like a really strong name for a character

DavidsGirl841444
October 22nd, 2007, 10:21 AM
Yeah but it is usual something unusual would be better but to each there own right girly.

CharmedGirl

mak sounds cool but is the guy as sexy as Quinn??BouncyBunny

KeriArthur
October 24th, 2007, 04:46 PM
Mak has changed his name. He's become Damon.

I realised Mercy and Mak as hero and heroine names sounded too cute together. Mak will have to appear in another book. :)

Dani
October 24th, 2007, 06:51 PM
Oooh, Damon. Now that's a strong name! :biggrin:

hollie
October 25th, 2007, 08:21 AM
Damon sounds tall dark and just alittle dangerous definatly compertition for Quinn :tt2:

DavidsGirl841444
October 25th, 2007, 09:10 AM
Ohh ddangerous always sexy and Damon sounds close to demon meaning bad almost. I like it.

Dani
October 25th, 2007, 09:31 PM
Damon sounds tall dark and just alittle dangerous definatly compertition for Quinn :tt2:
It would be interesting if Damon were competition for Quinn, but he's not in the Riley books. He's going to be in a different series that Keri's writing. :biggrin:

DavidsGirl841444
October 26th, 2007, 11:37 AM
So hes competing for which hot hunk is better in their own series. still hot.

hollie
October 26th, 2007, 01:58 PM
I missed that point completly so is Damon another vampire or just a sexy hunk?:)

Dani
October 26th, 2007, 04:24 PM
Actually Hollie, Damon is a fire dragon, unless he's changed himself again. See when Keri first started writing him, he was a sea dragon and she was calling him Mak, but as time progressed he changed to a fire dragon and she just chose the name Damon.

DavidsGirl841444
October 26th, 2007, 08:52 PM
Ok so where is she saying that it was a sea dragon and then a fire dragon. Cause I am lost there. But hey fire always better then water more threatening and dangerous.

i know its probably way to late for this, but you know whats a really strong name?


Caleb. to me, it has such a ringing force to it.

plus i dated a guy named caleb, and good lord, lets just say, if its a hero that riley desires, she wont be let down


good luck i cant wait

KeriArthur
November 3rd, 2007, 06:12 PM
caleb's a good strong name, but it doesn't really suit this hero. When I think of Caleb, I think of the strong, silent, farmboy/mechanic/works with hands type of man. That's so not this hero

:lol:

DavidsGirl841444
November 4th, 2007, 11:35 AM
Yeah well not many caleb heroes but names with you know either double meaning or orther things.

Dani
November 4th, 2007, 02:23 PM
There are characters with the name Caleb, but like Keri mentioned and I've noticed too, they are mostly farmboy/cowboy types. Not that that's a bad thing, I like the name Caleb too, but it's just a name you find more in a country story.

hollie
November 4th, 2007, 03:01 PM
country boys are good all that manuel work builds muscle

Dani
November 4th, 2007, 03:10 PM
You got that right. And having all that muscle to wrap around you later is a very good thing too. :notworthy:

Awww, how sweet! I'm happy that I could make his night. Cheerleader

Yeah, it's 2:48 pm where I'm at in Florida, so I'm guessing that it's almost 8 pm where you're at. I have a friend in Ireland and I know that he's 5 hours ahead of me, so I figure that you're about the same. Please correct me if I'm wrong. LOL!

It's still bright and sunny here still. We've also got a nice cool breeze blowing through which is a little rare at this time of year, but I'm not going to complain at all. I'm actually enjoying it. :whoohoo:

I'm leaving for a little bit to watch a movie with my son. He's on a Transformers kick, so that's what we're going to watch. Have a great night Hollie! HugMe

I bought Transformers on DVD the other day and I've watched it about 5 times already. I just love Josh Duhamel. LOL

OMG, isn't he just hot!!! I love him in that movie. :lol:

Sorry to bad maybe they need better material. OR better writers.

I have to agree with you about the writers Davidsgirl. The plot of that show really sucks.

And he's been named...At least for now. :lol:

Yeah the muse will eventually decide to stop being stubborn and the story will be written.

Kick the muse in the bum and get it to be inspired. That is what I would do.

Well that's the spirit maybe that's what Keri needs to do because we're so addicted to her books that we want them quicker but you can only do so much when the muse is being stubborn. LOL
