The Last Yeti is a novel of approximately 67,567 words, set in Alaska and written as part of the Love is an Open Road Anthology (Don’t Read in the Closet, 2015).
Here is the prompt that inspired me to write The Last Yeti:
Yetis are made to wander the wilderness mostly alone, and only meet up occasionally. For three long years I have searched the earth and, finally, I have accepted it: I am the last of my kind. I do not belong in the world of people or technology, but the only other choice is dying of loneliness. I have managed to create a life on the edge of society, terrified to come close, terrified of being recognized as the monster only little children believe in. Lately I have realized staying in the wilds may have been a less desolate life.
Can you maybe find me someone to be alone with together? I don’t have a setting or specific guys in mind. It could be set up in Alaska, in a big city or on a tropical island. I would like a world where there are no other shifters or other paranormal beings. I like contemporary, like plot complementing hot steaminess, and prefer angst over sweetness. Happy endings are not necessary and a HFN does a lot more for me than HEA. No kids please, no mysteries, and no BDSM, but otherwise I’m open to almost everything.
