Usurper has made its way to virtual shelves! You can find it on Amazon in both eBook and paperback.
This is the third installment in the Sedition series that follows Trenna Dyngannon and her husband Nelek as they struggle to find peace between humankind and the Eldur nation.
Fans of the novels – who may or may not have threatened to hunt me down if I didn’t stop writing other things and finish this book – will be pleased to find Nelek and Trenna in fighting shape. The quirky pair were left in exile in the second book (Saboteur) so I know a lot of you were left hanging.
In my defense, the reason this book took so long was because I discovered that I was trying to fit two books into one.
Why yes, this means there is a fourth book.
And yes, that book is already underway. It is in the outlining phase and I’ll be rolling up my sleeves to work on it later this year.
Sedition was my first published work so it holds a special place in my heart. I remember floundering with that first draft, trying to piece together things on 3×5 cards and make a sensible plot out of the personalities on the page.
Well, I remember coming to terms with what a plot was in general. When I started it was just a bunch of characters doing different things that occasionally intersected. It wasn’t until I joined a writers group (The Dreamers from the Forward Motion for Writers website) that I was able to see the work as a bigger picture.
At the time I had no idea there would be more books coming. Now, as I begin the process of ending this series, there is a part of me that dreads coming to the last page. Trenna and Nelek, and now their children, have become a part of my daily life.
As strange as it sounds, it will be difficult to say goodbye, no matter how the story ends.
