I can explain my books to you. Heck, you could pick one chapter out of all 80+ and I’d be able to tell you what happens based on the title alone.
But this post is about more than the plot. I have worked very hard to make my story stand out.
Now, do I think my story and characters are the most original ever? No. Like everyone, I take inspiration from what surrounds me.
I have written cringe worthy scenes and tropes, but I didn’t settle on them. I have an obsession with perfecting this story to the best of my abilities. I won’t settle for less. I won’t pick the first ideas that come to mind, or the second, or the third.
This story is a large project with deep characters and a deep story. I have poured my heart and soul into creating it. It has surprised me more times than anything has. I have never been more proud of anything I have worked on in my life.
This is something I have been feeling lately, and part of it is from a new found confidence. The other reason is me wanting to give the world something great. Something people could lose themselves in and get excited about the way I do.

I really believe that readers will be amazed by it. The characters, the story, the connections… It will keep you on your toes. It will make you think. You will possibly wonder how you missed all the foreshadowing on a second or third read through. You will fall in love with these characters, because they are realistic. Even the many side ones will catch your eye, because they are just as complex.
This is how my story makes me feel. My mind is always buzzing with ideas or possible outcomes. I had missed several instances of foreshadowing on my edits, because I didn’t realize I had already included them. The dozens of characters make my heart swell with emotions every time I write for them.
I really want people to enjoy my story as much as I have enjoyed creating it. I could have never said anything like this a year ago.
It’s possible I’m wrong. I expect disappointment and failure. And that’s okay. Not everyone will like it. At the end of the day, I’m so proud of this series. I can’t wait to be able to share it with you all.
