I think there’s going to be more to my Colors That Bind trilogy than just the three starting books. I’ve written a few short stories about these characters and sent them in for publication. One was published. However, I mean, I feel that there’s going to be more than even that. I’ve been getting ideas for the stories of some of the children of the characters that I fell in love with in this series to start with.
However, with two books to go on the trilogy I’m trying to focus on them. I have ideas for both. I still haven’t gotten any progress or updates from my old dying laptop if my story was salvageable, at all. I really do hope so. It would suck to have to start from scratch all over again and lose all my progress on the second book. Especially with my brain brimming with the ideas of Calliope’s children who wouldn’t come into play until well after the trilogy is over.
I’m pretty excited. My book is due out in October. However, there still seems like there is so much work to be done. I’m trying to keep afloat and remember what needs done and when. Amethyst Epiphany is a beautiful book, in my humble opinion, and I can’t wait to share all of it’s beauty and lessons with you. I can only hope that the characters mean as much to the readers as they do me.
What are some of the qualities of the characters you’ve connected with?
I’ve always felt the deepest resonance with the eccentric, outcasts of stories. I seem to know their agonies and their shy, anti-social tendencies along with the beauty of the craft that they pour their heart and passion into.
