Today has been a bit of a crazy, manic day. What started out as sheer confusion and stress turned into inspiration and no small amount of panicking (in a good way!).
While out to lunch with my husband, I gave him a run down on my progress with Immortal Rose. To be honest, I’ve been saying for the past week or so that there is just too much depth from Roseline’s 300 years of immortality to fit into one small book. I tried to ignore it, thinking I could still do it justice in a more compressed format but after sharing my progress with my husband he came to one simple conclusion: I HAVE to tell Roseline’s story right.
I’m talking about her anguish, fears, doubts, tortures, her friendship with Fane, her terror of Vladimir, detesting the monster she has become, learning to fight, to rebel, and oh so many more things. I want to let you meet Davros right after Vladimir has destroyed his mind. Discover Roseline’s flight to England in attempt to flee from Vladimir. Experience the prison walls that she is confined in. Watch her brethren storm London during the blitz to take out a nest of hunters. See her trials and her weak moments. Watch as she succombs to Vladimir’s twisted commands and then fights to break free.
I want you to smell, taste, touch and feel everything that she went through. To understand what drove her to America and into Gabriel’s arms.
The only way to do that is to write more than one book. Three in fact.
I don’t have all of the how’s worked out yet so if you want release dates, yeah…you’re gonna have to give me some time with that since I need to move a few things around. I have contacted my graphic designer to see what we can create for the covers. This is all very much in the “oh my gosh am I really agreeing to do this???” stage but I know that it is right. Roseline and Fane deserve this…and so do you, wonderful, amazing readers!
So…Immortal Rose is now a prequel trilogy.
The titles should give you a pretty good hint as to what Roseline is facing:
DESOLATE: Book I of the Immortal Rose Trilogy
SAVAGE: Book II of the Immortal Rose Trilogy
REFUGE: Book III of the Immortal Rose Trilogy
The legend unfolds…
