Having Destiny Fulfilled in my hands is soooooo close. I'm getting impatient to have the third book done and sitting on my mantel with the other two novels.
With that being said, I took a moment to reflect back over my publishing journey. It began January 2014 - so not that long ago. I have become so entrenched in this project, that it seems all I do is eat, sleep and breath the #AnandrianSeries. It's been a wonderful journey and one that is not complete. When I finished Laura's story, I realized there were a whole bunch of characters who needed to have their story told. Ideas have been whirling about in my head, and Laura and I constantly talk about where the series might go next. Even a walk with the dog down at the beach was inspirational when I saw a bunch of very gnarly trees. A new title popped into my head for book 4, Twisted Destiny, and when I took Laura to see the trees she totally agreed they would make a great cover for the next installment.
I can't get over how my characters are still living inside my head and I feel compelled to carry on and find out what happens to them - and the possibilities seem endless. It stuns me a bit at how invested I have become in their lives. I'm loving it! However, I am trying to hold back on the writing until I have #DestinyFulfilled sitting in my hands (I still have to read it through one more time once the proofs come back to me). I find it hard to switch from one book to the other - a problem I had when I tried this with the other three books. So, I'm waiting impatiently for the third book before I start writing again.
Stay tuned for updates on the release of Destiny Fulfilled!
