My name is Luna Lupine and I'm an advice columnist for the Shifter Times.

I advise werewolves and shifters on anything from dating to fashionable easy wear with shifting in mind. I'm a wolf(see my photo below)  shifter, but I help with all shifter dating issues.

I was invited by the fabulous Eva Gordon to advise you on the ins and out of having a relationship with a shifter. I am of the lycan persuasion and in a relationship with a bear shifter. My pack refuses to give their blessing, but hey, shift happens.

 Today I will give a bit of advice and answer questions for all you humans who want to date a werewolf? Or any other shifter. Author Eva Gordon's characters have had to confront the problem with dating a werewolf and so my emphasis will be on dating werewolves. But I'm open to any shifter questions. Some of you want a big cuddly bear, others may want a steamy hot relationship with a dragon, tiger, lion, hawk, gargoyle, or even in Bayla’s case) Hand of Miriam), a golem.

Let's start with how can you tell if your boyfriend/girlfriend is a werewolf. Winks. Keep in mind, this will depend on the author's universe. Using he pronoun because I'm lazy. Answer each.

1. When you go out to eat he always orders a steak (medium rare). Avoids the salad, but seem to enjoy
2. He is anxious to leave before the full moon rises.
3. He growls when other men check you out.
4. Shaves often.
5. You often see a hint of fangs and feral like eyes.
6. He can see in total darkness.
7. Likes to stick his head out of the car window while you drive.
8. When you come home from work you find thick dog fur on your furniture, but you don't own a dog.
9. Loves going on long walks.
10. Postpones introducing you to his family.
11. When approaching his home, you hear howling.
12. Prefers wooden chopsticks over using silverware.
13. Never goes out on a full moon.
14. Has an uncanny ability to smell and hear things you don't.
15. He stalks you, or at least knows where you've been.
16. Your cat runs and hides when he comes over.
17. Tells you what full lips you have, the better to kiss you, what a nice round a** you have, the better to spank you...and on and on.
18. Hottest guy/girl you have ever dated. Muscular toned body as if he works out in the gym 24/7
19. During the heat of making love, he always says, MINE.
20. After having sex with him, he's pretty much ruined you for normal men.

If you have answered yes to at least five of these comments/questions you better get a place with a bigger yard. And please, seek my advice.

Dating a werewolf can have complications, but don't worry, finding out your boy friend is a big bad wolf is not always a bad thing. No need to run out and buy silver bullets, and adorn your door with garlic. Here are some examples.

J is for Journey (Author Eva Gordon's Alphabet)

J is for Journey 

As in the classic journey a protagonist takes. Plenty of blogs, classes and books talk about the Hero's Journey narrative. The class I took used Star Wars to discuss the Hero's Journey.

To quote Joseph Campbell:  "A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man."
(Campbell, Joseph. The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1949. p.23.)

I'm a pantster( I write by the seat of my pants) not a plotter, yet my story always ends up as the classical Hero's Journey. Without even trying. 

Trust me you don't want to be protagonist in my stories, because before you get your happily ever after and save mankind you have one intense journey. 

For example, imagine waking up one morning to the zombie apocalypse. All you know is that you need to cross the country of flesh eating zombies to find your brother and niece. This is what happens to Dora in Apocalyptic Moon. 
Would you survive? I've got my vehicle but it sure would be nice to have a little help.

Blurb:  Dora's journey begins.

Dr. Dora Adler's life has been in disarray since the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, but when she gets bitten by one of the undead, her whole world is turned upside down. Held captive in a secret underground lab, the tall, muscular hunk in the next cell is her only hope for salvation. Unfortunately, he claims to be a werewolf. Yeah, and she's supposedly a witch.
Dirk Gunderson is an alpha Arbor pack werewolf. Captured and collared, he's sold to the zombie lab in hopes his blood serum can create a vaccine. He needs to escape, but not without the hot little brunette witch.
In the midst of enemy werewolves and the hordes of undead, Dirk and Dora's sexual tension ignites a blaze hotter than the desert highway. Along their journey, they battle the inevitable: a werewolf must never take a witch as a mate.

Eva Gordon's Alphabet: I is for Imagination

I is for Imagination

Imagination is the mind’s ability to be creative. Everyone has and uses their imagination, but writers, artists, dancers, and musicians use it as the driving force in their daily lives. As an author and a perpetual daydreamer, I am in a constant state of imagination. Don’t worry. I try not to daydream while driving, operating heavy machinery, or crossing a busy street. I still function in day to day life. However, malls often are imagined to be future dystopian worlds, or a hike in the forest becomes a path to Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother’s cottage. While standing in line at a grocery store, I study people and wonder what historical period they’d live in or whether I should classify them as an angel, vampire or werewolf? Fortunately, my mind brings me back to reality, but not for long.
Once I sit to work on my novel, typical of a panster or a psychic channeler, I let my imagination create characters who let me know what’s up and create fantastical worlds.  I also like to mix genres, because this really let’s my imagination go wild. Werewolves that are first born wolf before becoming human, werewolves that work for the Lycan Intelligence Agency, a golem that wakes up in a Victorian world, werewolves in fantasy historical stories, witches who combat zombies with the help of shifters, a woman who escapes Nazis and ends up in an alternate magical earth are just a few examples of how my brain works.

Me sitting in a wine cellar that inspired my underground werewolf caverns.

Final thought of the day.

Sticks and stones might break my bones, but my imagination will turn them into cyborg limbs so you better start running.
