I recently got a picture of my new baby. By baby, I mean my new book. By picture, I mean the cover. Yes, I got the cover for Taken at Dusk, book three in my Shadow Falls series. And I really like it. I also just finished the book so I’m really excited about this third installment of Kylie’s story.
So what’s happening in Taken at Dusk? Well, it’s very emotional, it’s funny, and it’s passionate. With both Lucas and Derek back at camp, the romantic tension escalates. Kylie and her two roommates, Della and Miranda, make a pact about boys. The paranormal world is bigger than ever as Kylie struggles to change Fate and learns some very hard lessons. Perry is up to his old tricks and creates storm of chaos that nearly takes down the dining hall. I know, I know, you guys are still waiting for book two, Awake at Dawn. But I just wanted to share the cover and just a few tidbits.
Now, back to the cover or shall I say, covers. I love putting them side by side. I love the running theme of a small person in a big place. I love that each cover hints at the story within: a young girl searching for something bigger than herself. In a lot of ways, that theme defines Kylie’s character. She feels small as she struggles to find her place in the world, to discover who and what she is.
Many of you have emailed me and asked how many books there will be in the series. I still can’t tell you exactly, but I can tell you this. The series doesn’t end at book three.
Now, because I’m going to be plotting book four, and introducing a few new characters, I need you guys to help me. I totally suck at coming up with names. So I decided to launch a contest to let one of my readers choose the name of a new character. To win, just make sure you leave a post and tell me the name you want me to use. And tell a friend. On July 15th, I’ll be drawing one name out of the hat and I will use it in book four. So get you name into the contest by leaving a post at my blog.
