Just Ask Me

This week I decided to do something a little different.  I’m always getting questions from fans, and I decided to answer a few of them on the blog.

Three Questions I’m regularly asked:

1) Was it hard ending Kylie’s story?

Saved_at_Sunrise_ebook_FINALIt was terrible.  Seriously, one day my hubby and I were driving somewhere and he asked me that very question and I started crying.  Big Texas-size tears, too.  I think that’s why I was so compelled to write Saved at Sunrise, which is the story about Della and Steve’s mission.  I just wasn’t ready to say good bye to all my wonderful Shadow Falls characters.  And as it worked out, writing that novella is what landed me the contract to write Shadow Falls: After Dark.  You see when my editor read it, she could tell that I was still very close to that whole world, so she proposed that I write Della’s story.

2) What are the differences between Shadow Falls and the new series, Shadow Falls: After Dark?

A lot of fans have emailed me worried they will no longer be able to catch up with Kylie and Lucas. Well, don’t worry, in Reborn you get all sorts of glimpses of these two.  They even have a small argument.  And Kylie tells Della and Miranda how wonderful it feels to be his girlfriend.  The story will pick up where Chosen at Nightfall ended.  The big difference is that these next books will be from Della’s point of view.  And because Della is a bit sassier than Kylie, you’ll get a little more snark.  Ahh, but when you get inside Della’s head, you are also going to get an inside view of her pain, her insecurities, her fears.  Yes, Della does have fears.   You’ll also see just how much she cares about Kylie and Miranda.  Yes, she loves the witch even if she’s always arguing with her.  The book will also be a little more kick a$$.  Hey…that’s who Della is.  She’s just that kind of girl.

3) If you could go back and tell your teen self a piece of advice, what would it be?

There is a piece of advice I’d give my teen self, and it’s the same advice I regularly give myself today.  Be careful who your friends are.  You see, our actions, our moods, and our accomplishments are often times effected by who we call our friends.  And that is true as adults as well as teens.  When you hang around with someone who is a go-getter and sets goals and meets those goals, you have a tendency to do the same.  When you hang around someone who is always whining and seeing the worst in life, you have a tendency to see things that way as well.  Negativity is as contagious as a stomach virus.  But the good news is so is happiness and motivation.  So if we hang with people who try to do the right thing, we are encouraged to do the right thing.  Your friends won’t be perfect, they may be grumpy from time to time, like Della is.  But when it matters most, our friends should be role models.  A good friend is someone who encourages you to be a better person, not someone who pulls you down and leads you down the wrong path.

T-Shirt Giveaway!!!!

    Will you ever do a chapter from the guy’s point of view? Was it difficult to switch from Kylie to Della’s story?

  2. Talai Kent says:

    :) Cool, CC.

    Here are my questions:

    Do you see a Miranda POV book in your future? :)

    Has Della’s sassiness made you a less sassy person, since you get out your ‘sass’ on the page, or did it work the other way around?

    Exactly how big are Texas-size tears?

    Haha :D :D

    • Mara Petrovsky says:

      Questions:
      1. how did you come up with the idea of shadows falls.
      2. if you had to pick Derek or Lucas. (that`s a hard question)
      3. how many books are you going to write about Della.
      4. Will you write a story about Miranda.

  3. Katie B. says:

    How many books are you planning to have in Della’s story?

    Is Holiday going to have the baby during this series?????? I need to know!! :)

    I don’t know why I’ve been thinking about this, but where does Lucas go on the holidays, breaks, etc.?

    Are you still going to involve the falls?
    Thank you! :* :) :D :P

  4. Jocelyne says:

    Ok so these are some questions.
    -How long is Della’s series going to be?

    -Is there going to be a new villan in the story?

    -How about Derek?Can you say if he’s gonna be with you-know-who?

  5. Kate Marshall says:

    Hi very excited to hear more of Della’s story my question is after you tell her story will you go and write another series on Miranda?

  6. Sherri says:

    I can’t wait for Della’s story! My question who have to be us she going on any more missions? And will they be with that very sweet shapeshifter ;P (I really hope she gives that boy a chance xD )

  7. Jessica S. says:

    Since you moved to Della’s point of view, do you think you would write in Miranda’s? In a full length novel or novella?

    Would you write from any one of the guys’ points of view?

  8. Veronika S. says:

    I’ve had an idea , what if after Della’s Point of view (and maybe Miranda’s) We could get a book of the future , as in like 10 years after everything happened when Mario’s secret off-spring has been planning something to hurt Kylie again , maybe Holiday’s and Burnett’s child is abducted and Kylie joins forces with all her camp-mates to look for her , idk

    I finished all your books in 4 days , I loved them , cheers o/ (Always have been Team Lucas , Thank’s for that ending)

    P.S i hope i win that shirt :B

  9. Isabel says:

    Does Kylie have a major or minor role in the After Dark series? I love her too much to let her character go as well!

  10. Lucy B. says:

    Are you thinking about writing a book from one to the guy’s (Derek or Lucas’s) point of view? I’d love to see what they think. I can’t wait for your next book!!!!

  11. Cassie says:

    I’m so excited!
    -How many books in this series?
    -Will there be a series after the last book in After Dark? ( I hope so! I don’t think I ever want this series of books to end! I cried just knowing that Chosen at Nightfall was the last in Kylie’s!)
    -How did you come up with these books?
    Thanks so much! I am BEYOND excited to read Reborn!

  12. Jess says:

    When is your new book coming out

  13. Fiona Sutton says:

    How do you prepare yourself to write? Do you routinely try to write everyday? What inspired you to write Shadow Falls? Will there be something about Miranda’s point of view, a series, a book, a short story?

  14. bn100 says:

    Do you write a lot during the holidays?

  15. Calla says:

    Has your street team been announced?

    Will Lucas and Kylie become more?

    Will you make a book of Lucas and Kylie if they do become more?

    Tell us something about Holiday’s baby?

    • CC says:

      Sorry, I have been so busy writing Reborn, that I am just getting to my new street team. And you’ll hear more about Kylie and Lucas in Reborn. :)

  16. Hillary Reyna says:

    I think it’s funny how usually I never have questions but if I think hard enough one comes easily. Here’s one: What does your husband think of your writing? And your kids? I know one day I’ll settle down (too young right now), but once I do I want to know how to know how your other half is supportive of what you do. I think that’s one of the many reasons I’ve never dated (other than my overprotective father) because I’m afraid that someone won’t support what I want to accomplish for myself. I want to be a writer too but I want that other person to know what’s important to me in my life. That’s why I want to know how you’re family takes your writing. I also want to know if any of the guys in your story were used to inspire certain characters :) Thanks C.C.!!!

  17. Essie B. says:

    Will there be more chameleons at the camp?

  18. Hannah Rose says:

    yes! I am soo happy you answered that you would have Kylie in you new books!! I love her soo much:) okay my questions are….
    1. does Della ever tell her family what she is?
    2. Will Holiday have a boy or a girl baby?
    3. can i please get a t-shirt?
    4. is the future prediction that holiday had in the falls going to be true?

  19. Gabrielle says:

    When I heard about Della’s story coming out, I was so exited. And it made me think, is there going to be a short story on Miranda? I also started to think about Holidays baby, will she be born in this series?

  20. Miranda E says:

    Is there ever going to be a possibility of a movie of the Shadow Falls series?

    That would be awesome!

    • CC says:

      You should read my Dec. 2012 blog. I announced the sale of the rights to Shadow Falls to a producer. But that is a long way from actually becoming a movie or TV series. If I have anything new to report, I’ll announce it here. So, keep your fingers crossed!

  21. janeal223 says:

    Hey cc
    I was just wondering if this series will have derek in it? I dont know why i just loved him from the start im also curious to see who the new villian would be in this book i cant wait to see della kick(u know what) and a different side to her we havent seen yet cant wait until this book is counting down the days

  22. jana says:

    my friend needed a book to write a report on and i told her born at midnight! i loved your story because of how much it related to me, because, well, she reminds me sooo much of della! its really funny because she agreed. on question, how many books are in dellas series?

  23. Melody says:

    Are we ever gonna read about Kylie again? i love your books so much i just wish we didn’t have to say good bye to kylie and lucas

  24. Rachel says:

    In the future do you ever plan to write another book like 5 years later from Kylie’s point of view?

    Are we going to see if the girls go to college?

    Also are we going to see if Kylie Marries Lucas?

    I’m in love with the series and I don’t even know how many times I have Read it.

  25. Hannah Rose says:

    I actually cried the first time ever reading a book at the end of Whispers at Moon rise and Chosen at Nightfall. i bet they were big fat Texas tears too!

  26. Berry says:

    -Since Kylie is chameleon, can she change into a shapeshifter, and if she can, why wasn’t it mentioned in Whispers at Moonrise or Chosen at Nightfall? In Whispers at Moonrise, she changed into a witch, vampire, fae, then werewolf, but why not shapeshifter?
    -Was it really hard for you to decide for Kylie if she was going to choose between Derek and Lucus? I feel like you already made that choice since the beginning because the relationship between Kylie and Lucas was more romantic and intimate than it was with Derek.
    -Why did you choose to do Della’s story instead of Miranda’s?
    I am really curious to hear about your answers to my questions.

  27. Amitee says:

    -What will happen to the other shadow falls characters?
    - Does Holiday finally have her baby?
    - What happens with perry and Miranda?
    - why has Kylie turned into everything so far, but not a shape-shifter?

    you don’t have to answer them all, but i am really curious. :) :)

  28. Amitee says:

    Will there be any more chameleons at shadow falls camp besides Kylie, Jenny, and Hayden Yates?

  29. Amitee Crass says:

    i love this series so much! i have read it about 5 times. i can’t wait to read Reborn. my questions are…….
    1. when does Holiday have her baby? will it be a boy or a girl?
    2. what happens with Kylie and luaus?
    3. what happens with perry and Miranda?
    4. what happens with Della and Steve?
    5. how many books are you going to write about Della?
    6. will you ever do another book about Kylie?
    7. Will you write one about Miranda? i would like to read about her :)

  30. I really hope we get to see more of Kylie and Lucas. I still can’t believe their story is over. I want to see what this argument is about. And I can’t wait for Della and Steve ;)

  31. Genesis Santiago-Correa says:

    Ahhhh I can’t wait! :) do you think you would give a tour around Houston with the Shadow Falls: After Dark books, please? :D

  32. Monica C. says:

    As you already know I love the Shadow Falls series and was so excited when I found out you were not done with these characters! Here are a few questions for you.
    1. Do you enjoy writing the YA teen genre or the adult romance books more?
    2. How many other characters from Shadow Falls are you thinking writing about?
    3. Do you ever come Utah way for books signings ;)?
    4. Do have any other plans or ideas to write other YA genre books maybe out on the horizon?
    Okay I am done with a few questions lol. C.C/Christie I love your books keep up the great writing and I cannot wait to read what you have in store for us next!

    Monica
