On the 16th November the last instalment of the Twilight saga will be released, Breaking Dawn, Part Two.
Now, I have to admit that even though I was (my obsession has lulled now…phew) a massive fan of the Twilight books, I have not been that impressed with the films. I love all the soundtracks – they are amazing! Nevertheless, I will be going to watch it to complete the journey, I do actually think that based on the plot and the special effects they might be able to pull off it could be the best one yet. You never know…
As I have mentioned in the past, the reason I started to write a novel was because I was inspired by an interview of Stephanie Meyer (on the first Twilight movie). She explained how she got the “Twilight” idea via a dream and because she was at home looking after her boys decided to put thought to paper.
Over the years I also came up with many ideas which I jotted down on the computer. However, most of them evaporated because I never saw them as anything other than dreams or silly notions. When I saw that interview a switch flicked in my brain. I had permission to write – I was not being silly if I wrote. Lots of people write, why not me? Might I add at this point that I used to write all the time as a child and then teenager, but as with many other things, I lost confidence and became convinced I was no good. I still think this but I’m glad a lot of people seem to disagree…lol.
My youngest daughter was a year old when I devoured the Twilight Saga. I had time on my hands so I wrote my first novel, a chick flick type thing. I bravely posted excerpts on Bookise and gave samples to a friend (Kay you are the best!). And to my shock and surprise she actually liked it! So, I shared with another friend (Kathyrn – another star) and she also liked it. I had a lot to learn though… it took another year before I joined The Word Cloud and learnt about critique, prose, and the right things to do!
After another year of polishing I had finished HYBRID (although it morphed a lot over time…) and decided to publish. I did try a few agents, and after getting what I call some “positive rejections,” I decided it was ready. Then as you can read on this blog the journey began in earnest.
So, here we are…after two and a half years, the second book in the Trilogy is ready! I don’t know what the right way to publish is yet, I am still learning. All I can do is tell you all about it and hope you want to know...lol
“COMPLICATIONS” will be published on the 16TH NOVEMBER on AMAZON…as a tribute to Twilight (the reason my writing journey started…)
IT IS NOW PUBLISHED ON SMASHWORDS
I hope you will take a look...
I have created a blog solely for The Evolution Trilogy...
...where I have posted the "teaser" for Complications
Thanks for reading
