I don't know if you've heard, but the final novel in my Cloud Prophet Trilogy dropped on November 25th!!!! Severed was the culmination of a writing journey I started back in late 2008.
If you've read my other book, Sleepers, you may have noticed some common threads between it and the books in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy (Anathema, Oubliette, and Severed). Only two people emailed me, questioning those similarities. I honestly thought I'd hidden them so well that no one would notice.
What's so exciting about Severed is that even though it's the final book in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy, it's NOT the end. I don't believe in endings. Don't you always wonder what happens on the other side of that final page of a book? Happily ever after only exists in fairy tales. Those of us who live in the real world know that life's not that simple. If you're anything like me, then you have the drive to know the unknown.
I'm not one of those authors who sits back and says to herself, "Yep. Did a good job with the series. Time to take a break." Nope, not me. I've already got something new up my sleeve.
I'm officially letting the cat out of the bag on this blog. The Cloud Prophet Trilogy and The Swarm Trilogy are connected. To show everyone how, I'm releasing a short story soon, called The Initiate. It's a prequel short story that will tell us where the legends started. Eloh, the goddess in the Cloud Prophet Trilogy, is the main character in The Initiate - and she's human. Makes you a little curious, doesn't it?
I'm hoping to have The Initiate up for sale by the end of the year. But, while you're waiting, feel free to take a peek at the book trailer...
