Life gets more complicated for Devi as Book 3 progresses…
A lot of you have asked me when Book 3 of the Fallen Angels series will be out. I can’t tell you how exciting that is! A year ago, the only people who had read After Eden were me, my sister and my mom (and in all honesty, I was afraid that after I published the book the three of us would still be the only ones who would ever read it). Every time I realize that there are people out there who like and are eagerly waiting for the next book in the series, I am amazed and humbled. I cannot thank all of you enough for your support.
As for Book 3, I’m working hard on it right now. I’m not sure when it will be done, but I it’s very unlikely that the book will be available before this summer, and my best guess is that the book will be done sometime this fall. Even though I’m an author and I know how long it can take to write a book, I’m a very impatient reader. When I finish a book in a series, I want the next one right away and it’s hard for me to wait. So, for those of you who are readers like me, I just want to tell you that I understand how you feel and I’m writing as fast as I can.
I’m excited (and a little scared!) to share Book 3 with everyone. This book is very special to me because it contains the scene that inspired me to write the Fallen Angels series. For me, each book starts with a scene that is so powerful that it makes me want to write the rest of the book just so I can have that scene. I’m certainly not the only author who works this way. I think I remember reading an interview with Stephenie Meyer where she said that the scene that made her want to write Twilight was the one where Bella and Edward are in the middle of a field, and he was torn between wanting to kill her and kiss her (I don’t know if he was sparkling in her mind, but I hope so!). I also think that one of my favorite indie authors, Tammy Blackwell, mentioned the scene that made her want to write Destiny Binds is the one where Scout and Alex are making out in the back of his trailer while his brother is in the next room, and Alex says: “I never said that I was your destiny, Scout, just that you were mine.”
So what is the “special scene” in Book 3? Well, I can’t tell you guys because it goes way, way, way, way, way into spoiler territory, but let’s just say that I’m excited to hear what everyone thinks about it When I think of the Fallen Angels Series, this is the scene that immediately comes to mind, and it’s the scene I’ve been wanting to write since I started the books.
Lastly, I want to apologize to everyone who has sent me an email or left a comment on my blog, facebook, or twitter, and is still waiting for me to respond. I’ve been insanely busy working and writing, and as a result my inbox is a nightmare. However, when I get back home next week (I’m currently visiting family and don’t have reliable Internet access), I will respond to everyone. I truly value your time and, as an author, there is nothing more encouraging than hearing back from readers.
