When I wrote "The Prophecy", it was a year later, I had taken writing courses and participated in seminars and I feel like that book showed that I was growing as writer. Now with "War of Wizards", I only hope that I have made the fans of the series happy, while creating an emotional and adventurous story.
When I think about how absolutely terrifying it was once my first book was published by Center One Books, I remember it was because I was worried about what everyone would think of me. Would my family and friends automatically think that parts of the story were piece of my life? (Yes they did, and no, I don't write autobiographies). Would people like the story I created? Would reader criticize my work? All of those questions still rack my brain with each book I release, but I've learned to take in the good, and learn from the criticisms, and hopefully my writing shows that. Writing is a very personal thing, and I it takes a lot for authors to put ourselves out there the way we do. But I can say one thing for sure, I am so glad I took the leap, got out of my comfort zone for once, and shot for the stars.
Now that THE SECRETS OF SHADOW HILL series is complete, my next two releases will be from my contemporary romance A BROKEN FAIRY TALE series with "Wished Away" being released this August. But I will then be returning to the YA fantasy genre and be writing some more books with characters you may already know:) Thank you to everyone who has supported me, and for the new people who are just finding me; spread the word, write a review, and share the love, because nothing is better than word of mouth!
Lots of Love, and enjoy the book!
