It’s 2014 and the year is off to an interesting start.
After finishing with Liabilities, I was able to take time to see some movies, like Catching Fire and the second installment of the Hobbit. I have a lot of love for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Hobbit series. Man that guy could write and had such talent for putting together his imagination on a page. And let’s not forgot the Hunger Games trilogy. It was really nice to see book to movie conversion done so well consider condensing a longer book into a shorter screenplay. Have you guys seen? What did you think?
I’ve been doing a lot of playing out in my head about each of my books. I wish I had magic fingers and I could get all of it down on a page in minutes instead of weeks and months. I’ve plotted out Mercy’s conclusion. Okay, so I’ve known how it would end. More like the details and I’m anxious to get it down and finished.
I’m also ready to bring TTL to its conclusion. Ethan needs to finish telling his story.
A song that’s been playing in my head and on my speakers on repeat is Wait for Me by Kings of Leon. I feel like it describes characters in flux in each of my books as a song sung to other characters. Can you guess who would be singing to who?
But today I’m here to talk about Liabilities. I took a risk in writing an adult tale. I needed an outlet for all the things I couldn’t write in YA. Assets, Liabilities and ultimately Equity are really one book. I took a chance in telling the story in the “series” way because I needed to get other things written in between. In doing so, it may appear that the story is headed in a certain direction.
For me as a writer, I try to give the reader enough information so that they really understand the characters and the decisions that they make (bad or good ones alike). All my main characters are flawed. Somehow, perfect characters to me aren’t as interesting. As such, they make mistakes, human or paranormal ones, lol. Because I’m a reader as much as a writer, I totally understand when you want to shake, slap, yell or whatever at my characters because you perceive what they are doing as dumb, idiotic, crazy, etc. But that’s what people do, we make mistakes. Heck, my mistake was writing and releasing the book in pieces. What’s done is done. Again, I get it. I just hope you guys continue to trust me.
For Equity, the story will be told from two POVs, Kalen and Baileys. You got a taste in Liabilities. Now it will be full out throughout the book.
As a teaser, I’m posting the unedited first chapter in Equity. Click the link below. Enjoy.
