You know the characters, now meet the author


You may or may not already know the characters, so this week on Friday, September 27th come out and meet the author. Baltimore Book Festival is this week from Friday-Sunday, and I will be attending as an author on Friday, the 27th from 12pm to 8pm. It's going to be a long day, and I'd love to see new and familiar faces to make the time pass by more quickly. I am very excited to talk to you about the books, characters, and if you're an aspiring writer I'd love to hear what you're writing about. Please stop by and say hello. My boyfriend, Eric, will be present with me, and I cannot thank him enough for be willing to come out and support me throughout the entire day. (Be sure to tell him how much we appreciate it!)
I've been meaning to post some more about the sequel, and now that I finally have the chance to -it's been a busy month!- I wanted to mention a few things. One of the reasons I love the cover for Shadows and Embers so dearly is because the designer allowed me to decide exactly what was going on the cover. Another reason is because Nicia made it to the cover, and even though Leal's probably a bit jealous, he's (secretly) happy for her too. Nicia's one of the characters from the book that grew on me faster than I had expected. I've talked about her a couple times on the blog, but since publication I've been meaning to say a bit more. Once the second book was done I realized she had became one of my favorite characters. I also just recently noticed that pretty much everywhere you look now on my website and other sites I'm on, you'll eventually run into her. It's great seeing her on the cover and knowing that she became a much more major character than originally planned out. She adds a lot of conflict to the book as well, seeing as Leal can't quite figure out if she's an enemy or an ally. Could she be both?
Though I can't explain why at this point, Nicia's also been a great muse while writing the third book. Every now and then she's int eh back of my head, giving me a shove to keep going. I loved working on her story and seeing the twists and turns she and Leal ran into, and now going into the third installment of the series I can't wait to meet new characters and fall in love all over again. That's the wonderful part about the writing process; you can have your favorites.
So if you're curious why Nicia is everywhere you turn and want to know more about her, pick up a copy of the book and find out what her story is.
Progress in the third book:
What I want to do more often is update the blog about what's happening with my upcoming book. Sometimes I might not have much to share, so if that's the case I might just include a little snippet at the end like I am today to catch you up with my progress. For those of you who already finished the sequel and are waiting for the next book, this will help you see where I am.
Needless to say, I am a fan of owls. Anything with an owl on it, you can pretty much guarantee I'll love. When I came across these two cute journals yesterday at Barnes and Noble I couldn't resist. (It's okay, though, I honestly needed a new journal). I'm pleased to say that the journal I'm working in right now (the one in the right picture on the right) has done wonders. The pages have unique, colorful designs, and it keeps me interested and focused in my writing. I started on chapter four today; chapters 1-3 are completely done and typed up. It's not a huge amount of progress, considering SandE released two months ago, but I sneak in writing whenever I have the free time. Once I'm on winter break and such I can squeeze in some more.

Hope to see you at Baltimore Book Festival, and if you can't make it I'll bring back pictures!
