Sudden Shock – Progress

556b9-sudden2bshock

I am procrastinating. The pivotal scene where Elle meets Brant for the first time needs to be written. It has to be momentous, gripping and heart-racing. The setting is Rome in the year 331 A.D. The Foro Romano is overcrowded with merchants, with impoverished and homeless citizens looking for a handout, and slave traders who ply their trade.

Told from Elle’s perspective, the sight of Brant should cause her to freeze, to miss a heartbeat at his magnificence.

I am sure the words, the images, of that fateful day will come to me. I should just start writing what comes to mind for now. Eventually, it will take shape in a way that will make the meeting one for the ages.

I am pleased to announce that the box set of The Crystal Series is now available. Elements, book one of the series, has received, I am proud to say,  excellent reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

“This book has all the elements of a great read for young adults and adults alike. With its combination of supernatural elements, a complicated love triangle, danger, and intrigue, it was very difficult to put down. The characters were well crafted, the plot strong and I really can’t wait to find out what happens next in book 2 of the series.”   5 Star

Time to Focus on the New Book

556b9-sudden2bshock

So not much writing is being done at the moment. Still only at seven chapters completed. With my first trilogy completed, I find myself either on twitter or facebook. At some point, I will have to pull away and focus on Elleanor and the mystery of who killed Eve. Brant is also waiting to discover how Elleanor is still alive after centuries of thinking her gone.

I know I have to leave my previous characters in The Crystal Series to find their audience but after so much time invested in them, it is hard to let them go. It’s like the first time you leave your kids at daycare. You know they have to stand on their own, but you want to hover over them to make sure they don’t get harmed.

Next week. I will start up again next week. The cover for the first book in my ongoing series is done. (See above) The storyline is outlined and I need only develop it further. It’s time to put the focus back on that.

I would love any comments on the book cover or how you deal with finishing a book.

“With its combination of the supernatural, a hero who doesn’t know her own powers, a complicated love triangle and some danger, intrigue and betrayal, this book was difficult to put down. I enjoyed all the well-crafted characters and can’t wait to read the next one in the series.”
