Eliyana Ember is stranded in a foreign country in the Third Reflection with no passport, the inability to mirrorwalk, and zero clue where the nearest Thresholds back into the Fourth or Second might lie. Her mind is a haze, her memories vague. She knows a wormhole from the Fourth sent her here. She remembers her mom and baby brother Evan. Makai and Stormy and Joshua . . .
Deep down El realizes she must end the Void once and for all. Is there a way to trap the darkness within its current vessel, kill it off completely? To do so would mean sacrificing another soul—the soul of a man Joshua claims is a traitor. But he’s lied to her before, and even El senses Joshua can’t be fully trusted, but one thing is certain . . .
The Void must be annihilated. And only the Verity—the light which birthed the darkness—can put an end to that which seeks to kill and destroy.

The process of writing a series.

Decide where you want to end up and write until you get there. That’s pretty much it.

But seriously, I hate to disappoint, but I wouldn’t say I have a particular process. I decided to write a trilogy when trilogies were the thing. I liked trilogies and three is a nice number. Book one would be the beginning, two the middle, and three the end. I always knew how it would end, to some extent. But so much completely surprised me as well. Side characters took on huge personalities and ended up stealing the show on occasion. Villains I thought would remain villains turned out to have a good side too. And heroes showed their dark sides in ways I never expected.

I guess the biggest thing is you have to pace yourself. You can’t let your characters develop too quickly, and the same goes for relationships. Originally, I had two of my characters kissing in book one, chapter seven. Thank goodness for wonderful critique partners who reminded me it was way too soon for kissing if I wanted the series to, in fact, be a series. Every book needs its own problem. I learned that El’s internal struggles would not be enough to carry the trilogy, and that I needed much higher stakes if I wanted the story to keep going after book one. The original first manuscript didn’t have a Void or a Verity. My editor helped me develop those elements, and soon we had world issues that would span three books.

As far as writing goes, I work in layers. But not in the nice neat layers I’ve seen other writers talk about. I edit as I go and build upon problems and personalities until they become complex. Sometimes I have to reel myself in and get myself out of corners. I try to outline, but my end result is almost always different from the original synopsis I turned in to my editor.

I feel like this answer is sporadic, but so is my process, whether I’m writing a series or a stand-alone. Bottom line? Work toward an end goal and take time to reach it. Rome wasn’t built in a day and some series take years to develop. This one is going on six years. I’m so glad I finally get to share the ending with everyone. I’ve been keeping it a secret for a long time.

About the Author
