FORGOTTEN ANGEL – Joy of Release Day

Wow – this summer’s finale is finally here! And what a wonderful little adventure this has been. I started rereading Summer Angel (book 1) in the series before bed, and am swept away once more into the second plane, where guardian angels reside.

While I was reading, I noticed something interesting; how bits and pieces have seen their way into other works of mine. You have not seen The Wicked Awakened, since it is not being released until Halloween, but it also has magic in it, and I have discovered that I LOVE writing about mystical beings.

In the Summer Spirit Novellas, the angels use magic extensively. It permeates every part of their lives, and is completely part of who they are. In Dark Angel, Clarisse no longer has her powers, and even comments how difficult it was to adjust to being ‘normal.’

I don’t want to give too much away, so I will tell you instead where this series came from. In actuality, it was written to be a standalone – and each book has a definite conclusion to the problem at hand, so there are no cliff hangers. The idea for it came from a day I spent with my soon to be thirteen year old son, a portion of which appears in Summer Angel. I told him his little idea would make a good story, and of course, then I had to write it for him.

However, as soon as my girls got their hands on SA, I began getting requests for a sequel, as the characters were too compelling to leave them where I had… sigh. And thus, another series was born. Not that I’m complaining – these books have been so much fun to create.

I have kept each novella length, compressing all the important parts into the story, while maintaining a length that can be read in a couple of hours, so they make good travel books, for a car or plane ride. I have also kept them very clean, with the naughty parts and violence mild or hidden… you know it’s there, but it’s not in your face, so to speak. Again, good practice for me, I think. My first series is 7 connected books long… almost half a million words of dark, violent and graphic material, so this is definitely something different.

Anyway, I have ideas to continue, more or less, next summer, with a new set of three novella stories. Whether or not it will be the same story line or not, I have not decided. I guess I will know when it gets to be closer to time to write them. Until then, all 3 are on sale for only 99 cents each, as of today, so please enjoy my little magical creation.
