A Novella of the Heart
"Kane was faced with making a choice, and each came with a consequence that would wreck him forever."
What I loved about writing this book was that all of the layers were stripped away to the core of the story because of the unusual circumstances, and the location.It forced two individuals to take a hard look at themselves, and come to terms with who they are and what they value in life.
I can't say that it's an easy sell, because #1 it's a novella, and you get the typical feedback that a reader wishes it had been longer. But I wanted to take out all the additives and make this story concentrated. Writing it was effortless, but in retrospect, it was one of those books that I wondered how readily readers would accept because of the unusual set of circumstances that these two find themselves in, as well as the central location where most of it takes place.
There may be questions on how this is possible, and that is where making this part of the Mageri world imperative. There is sometimes magic beyond our understanding, but it would have only been possible with this Breed type.
For me, it was a very visual story to write. I can still so vividly see the scenes in my head, including the very last scene as the camera pans back and takes us away from this world.
It's also one where after I wrote it, I kept hearing these songs on the radio that made me think of it. And yes, I was a bit of a wreck writing out one of the scenes on my last draft. I'm very proud with how it turned out, and am happy to see that it had a very good launch day. It's nice to know it's out there now, and that every so often, someone will step into Kane and Caroline's story.
