That’s it. The countdown is on, people! Are you excited?! I am! Excited, anxious, nervous… You name it, I’m running the gamut. But in a good way, you know? In a proud, speechless, I can’t believe this is finally ‘the end’ kind of way. I finished my first series! This is huge! *Super excited high-fives all around*
I really loved writing in the same world with familiar characters. Having an ensemble cast helped me explore my themes from different viewpoints, forced me to build thrilling new relationships (not even just romantic ones!), and really let me set the world building up in an epic, sweeping way that was both individual characters and universal. I learned so much about plotting (lifetime pantser here), character growth and continuity. Things I didn’t expect to learn years ago, when I first started putting the characters down on paper, first started fleshing out their world and its ancient traditions. This has been an awesome journey and I see the growth with each book. I hope you guys end up loving the Guardians as much as I do, when it’s all said and done.
So, what do we have in store as we countdown to release week?
Let’s start with a guest appearance at fellow Drollerie Press author Angela Korra’ti/Angela Highland’s blog! She has a nifty segment titled Boosting the Signal, where she offers up fellow authors some promo love. There’s a vignette, not included in the books, told from a minor character’s POV (Bianca/Air) which ties together books 2 and 3 and sets up a major plot point! 🙂 Please check it out!
Also, be on the lookout for the official series playlist. I’m going to put together all the songs that inspired me and offer some YouTube linkage for your listening pleasure. 😉
In the meantime, if you haven’t started the series, what are you waiting for? Book 1- The Guardian’s Mark is on sale for only $0.99! Barely a cup of coffee! 😉 so get your read on! Book 2- The Guardian’s Choice is marked down to $2.99 for a limited time. Get it while you can!
