I first published A Raven’s Touch in 2015 and it’s so hard to believe it’s been 3 years since I first saw it go live. I’ve begun work on my first draft edits and it’s a humbling experience. One can hardly expect to do anything right on the first try and I fully expected my manuscript to look like a red bloodbath, and it does. Writing is a personal experience in itself. To actually put words to paper and have others a) read those thoughts, b) understands those thoughts (as intended), and c) praise those thoughts, well, that’s the perfect storm.
So far, I’ve been lucky enough to have over 50 Amazon reviews and I’m hoping for at least 100 (for A Raven’s Touch). I anticipate those numbers will grow once A Raven’s Revenge is complete.
The plan is to have three books. A Raven’s Touch is an introduction to Justice, Moira, Tom, and Darien. I built a world where angels and demons exist, vampires, elves, and magic are very real.
In A Raven’s Revenge, the foursome go on an adventure through Hell (literally) to help Justice avenge her parents. This mission from God will test them and push them to their limits. Is justice served? Do they make it out alive?
The third and final book, A Raven’s Wrath, is going to be a fantasy epic battle. When I say epic, I mean heaven, all the angels, all the demons, and every creature in Acana fighting to save the world from being invaded. Things are going to get crazy. Decisions will be made, lives will be lost, and in the end, someone has to win, but which side triumphs?
Lots to go through, lots to write, and as usual such little time. Is this all worth it? But of course darling, of course, it is. All the pain and suffering, the life questions that arise, the self-doubt that creeps up at the worst moment. Ah, where would I be without these horrible work crippling thoughts? Why, I’d be happy that’s what, but who needs that when you’re a writer?
This is my dream after all and I should be so lucky to do it. I truly do wish, more than anything in the world, to be a writer. Though writing fiction isn’t my full-time job, I’m still doing it and that in itself is a dream come true.
