This is it and now the countdown is at hours. Shadow and its companion are the biggest undertaking I’ve taken on as a writer. I swear I tried to write it all in one book, but I had a pesky character speaking in my head refusing to be cut short.
For the people who knew this character in real life, you know I’m talking about Marinah. I’m telling you right now that girl is stubborn.
The only place put my foot down was how soon Marinah had sex with King. No, I kept telling her, you’re not ready. She fought me at every turn, but this is the only argument I won completely. Her and King’s relationship is a slow burn.
What exactly did Marinah get her way? Well, obviously we have two books instead of one. And, there will be more (she was adamant about that). She won all the clothing arguments and I can’t even imagine if this was a world of high fashion and not the hellhound apocalypse. Marinah could teach a fish to look fashionable. She also won on who lived and died though there were a couple men she was bloodthirsty for. They are waiting for another book much to her chagrin. Another is the title of the book after Warrior. It’s Beast because Marinah says so.
Now that everyone thinks I’m crazy and I won’t argue, I’m heading to the wine cabinet. My only heavy decision is red or white. Please, please, please try Shadow. I know you will love the book and Marinah! King isn’t half bad either!!!
