WHY GO BACK TO RYLEE’S WORLD?

Though it may seem obvious, as to why I found myself writing in Rylee’s world once again, I thought it might be best to explain.

Because I had no intention of going back to Rylee, as far as I was concerned her story was done with “The Blood of the Lost.” Her journey with me was over, kaput, finito . . . but a funny thing happened …

SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN’T FINISHED THE RYLEE ADAMSON SERIES

It began with numerous readers emailing and messaging me about Rylee, Liam, Pamela and of course Alex. Asking me to keep writing their stories. I politely declined even while Rylee whispered in my ear that maybe they had a point. That maybe she wasn’t fucking well done. I told her to shut up, I had other projects calling to me. I told her she’d get a cameo in the Elemental Series, that would have to be enough.

Rylee grumped at me. Seriously grumped that maybe . . . just maybe the transition for her into becoming a daywalking vampire wasn’t as smooth as we’d let on in the last book.

I grumped back at her. Not my issue. Stop pestering me, I’m busy. You know there are other characters out there who need me to tell their stories too. You’re being selfish.

That quieted her up some. You know Rylee, there is no way she’d want to be thought of as selfish. So she was quiet.

And damn it if the story didn’t start to unfold. The issues she was having, the new darkness she was facing.

Damn it.

I told Rylee she had two weeks to tell her story, that was it. I wrote RYLEE (The Rylee Adamson Epilogues, Book 1) in fifteen days. As I wrote this book, I

14-Days

couldn’t believe the changes Rylee struggled with, the darkness in herself. I realized this was a big part of why she’d been pestering me that her story wasn’t done. Because while she’d saved the world from the demons, there was still a struggle as monumental in its own way she had to face.

It is a full length novel, the same size as PRICELESS . . . the only problem? At the end of the book I realized Rylee wasn’t the only one with a story that still had to be told.

Double damn it.

These books suck you in and don’t let you go!! Can’t wait for the next one! Hope I have the patience to wait that long.” – Reviewer of RYLEE

She smirked. I groaned. Liam all but grinned at me with a wink from one of his ice blue eyes.  So be ready for LIAM (The Rylee Adamson Epilogues, Book 2) coming to you this summer (aiming for July/August).

 

YOUR RESPONSE SO FAR

I am BLOWN away at the response to Rylee’s Epilogue! I knew you all missed her but WOW, I had no idea just how badly you all were jonesing for a fix of that potty mouthed Tracker . . . or should I say Huntress?

YAY!!! Rylee’s back!!! I was going through withdrawal thinking the series was over and was thrilled to see that Rylee’s story will continue.” -Reviewer of RYLEE

If you haven’t picked up RYLEE (The Rylee Adamson Epilogues Book 1) yet, may I make a suggestion? Click a link below to grab it. You don’t want to miss out on this newest adventure. And yes, to all those who are asking, you will for sure get to see Rylee and her gang as cameo’s in Larkspur’s Elemental Series. Because Lark has her own battles to face and when it comes to standing in the way of darkness, Rylee is the one who knows better than any other the sacrifices that sometimes have to be made.

Apparently none of these characters are done talking . . . .

TODAY IS EXCITING!!

writing tv excited good new girl

Yesterday I sent the second book for the 47 North series over to them, did copy edits on “Rootbound” and ingested WAY too much caffeine. 😉 BUT, today is exciting. After where I left the ending of “Rootbound” I am bouncing in my chair to start “Spirit Sown” Lark # 7 . . . seriously. I cannot wait to see where the characters take me on this go round in Lark’s world! (And maybe, just maybe there might be a cameo from Rylee’s gang!)

My name is Larkspur, and I am an Elemental.

My people use the power of the earth to sustain life and defy our enemies. I should be at my father’s side as a royal princess. But as a half-breed, bastard child, that isn’t going to happen.

In a world of lava and fire, I am about to face my hardest trial yet. Not one of strength, or power, but intrigue and manipulation. However, my tolerance level for anyone outside of my family is at an all-time low, and the queen who rules the Pit expects complete obedience.

As Ash’s life is held in the balance, I have just three days to prove his innocence and mine. This place holds more than a scorching heat; new foes, traitors, and creatures from the depths of the lava are all trying to keep us from surviving.

The only question left. . . Can I get us all out without being burned alive?

Welcome to the Pit.

NEW STARTS AND FRESH BEGINNINGS

January is a month of new starts, and fresh beginnings. Here we go, 2015 is about to take off and I have a feeling that it will be a year to remember. At the start of each New Year, I reflect back on what I accomplished and what I didn’t accomplish on the previous year.

2014 was amazing, and I don’t think I’ll be able to top the birth of my baby boy. But . . . .I do think that 2015 could be the year we start to see Rylee make waves in the industry of movie and television. So on that note, here are some of my predictions for 2015, both for the book industry and me let’s start with me:

  1. Rylee and her motley crew will finally gain the attention of a TV producer. And even if we don’t have her story in living color right away, I believe we will see a lot of interest.
  2. At least one of my books will pick up the NYT and USAT bestseller tags.
  3. 6-7 new full-length novels (plus some shorts here and there) will be released from me over the coming year hopefully keeping my readers happy. J
  4. In October, look out for a HUGE surprise from me. Can’t say anything more, but that will be the month to watch! (And no, I am NOT pregnant again lol)

Now to the industry I’m a part of, the predictions are a bit trickier, but I’m going to take a stab at it.

  1. Kindle Unlimited will no longer be an ‘exclusive’ perk, thus allowing authors
    to reach a larger audience base, which will allow Amazon to continue to be the ‘champion’ of Indie Authors.
  2. A company similar to BookBub will have a break out in the advertising market, but will be geared only to iBooks in an attempt to catch those readers not found on BookBub.
  3. We’re going to see a breakout epic fantasy, something akin to the Lord of the Rings, which will become the next big thing once the FSOG is all done with.

That’s it, that’s what I see ahead for this year. I still have my bucket list, though, and I hope you have yours. Because if nothing else, we aim for those high points, knowing that there is no such thing as failure as long as we are willing to try again.

And again.

And again.
