A Series of Books

๐Ÿ QOTD: How many books do you prefer in a series? Both reading and writing ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

๐Ÿ To me, as a reader, I’m not sure it matters as long as the story warrants the number of books ๐Ÿ˜…

๐Ÿ As an author… Hmm. Not sure! I’m a pantser, so my story sort of evolves as I go along, but I’m hoping to stick to 3-6 books per series, with whatever other ideas being standalones ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ Speaking of series, The Light of Darkness is definitely reaching its conclusion now. The final edit of book 6, The Thousand Year Divide, is almost finished!! So exciting ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

Blurbs of Doom…

๐Ÿ QOTD: How important is the blurb to you? And for authors, do you like writing blurbs?

๐Ÿ To me (as a reader), sure, the cover is important to catch that initial attention, but the blurb sells the book. It’ll make me want to read it or not.

๐Ÿ But as an author… Ugh, I cannot properly express my distaste for blurbs ๐Ÿ˜‚ Along with marketing, they are the banes of my life ๐Ÿคฃ

๐Ÿ So, if anyone is wondering, I’m busy cussing out my computer for not writing my current blurb for me ๐Ÿ˜‚

Anaya, for the final time!!

๐Ÿย LOOK HERE, YOU GUYS!!ย ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ย I’ve got the last cover for The Light of Darkness, fresh from @coversbychristianย ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽ‰

๐Ÿ Like always, I’ll post a couple of pieces before revealing it fully, but the book is titled The Thousand Year Divide and will soon be released!! I’m so excited ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽ‰

๐Ÿ Once again, and despite me being a royal pain in the ass, Christian Bentulan at @coversbychristian did a fabulous job! ๐Ÿ˜ He has the patience of an angel! ๐Ÿ˜…โค๏ธ

Another Tuesday Teaser!!

๐Ÿ–ค Snippet from The Power of Conviction (The Light of Darkness, book 1) ๐Ÿ–ค

Watching him jump, she could observe his nimble movements. How he, despite his size, dampened the fall to the point of nearly not making a sound. The demon bent down, righted the basket again, then scooped some of her berries back into it. โ€œWhere have you been?โ€ he asked.

Anaya frowned. โ€œWhat do you mean, โ€˜where Iโ€™ve been?โ€™โ€

โ€œYour late walks. You stopped taking them.โ€

โ€œWhoโ€ฆ well, who wouldnโ€™t, with a stalker such as yourself!โ€ she exclaimed, still sitting on the ground. โ€œThere is no way this is a coincidence. Whatโ€™s this, theโ€ฆ the fifth time you return now?โ€ She tried to regain her composure as she stood. Brushing grass and leaves off her robes, she took a deep breath, then stared at him. โ€œAre you here to punish me?โ€

โ€œKeeping count, are we? And punish you? Thatโ€™s funny.โ€ Samael gave a sly smile. โ€œIf you mean that Light you tried to burn me with, then forget about it. Is that why you stopped going out at night? Fear of me?โ€

Anayaโ€™s face reddened. โ€œIโ€™m not afraid of you!โ€ She crossed her arms, looking away. โ€œBut I am concerned about your intentions, whatever they may be.โ€

โ€œIs that not a distinction without a difference?โ€

Anaya slammed her foot on the ground. โ€œYou be quiet! Stop your taunts, demon!โ€

โ€œBack to โ€˜demonโ€™ are we? Ah well, it was fun while it lasted.โ€ Samael turned and walked away.
