Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
With the Edenix Cycle Trilogy I now complete, I went back to a story that had been on my shelf literally collecting dust. I’ve made major changes and spun out Unfolding, a novel about a young woman who has gotten herself into a world of hurt. There is a longer explanation below. While that’s in the editing phase, I am back to working on Trilogy II of the Edenix Cycle. We pick up the story about 400 years in the future after Queen’s Reign. All I’ll say is things are heating up on this little planet way out on the edge of the Expanse.
What's the story behind your latest book?
In Unfolding, we follow Edeanna McKinley—a young woman in a world of hurt. She’s married to a man who doesn’t love her and miscarried their baby just months before. She comes on an accident on the way home from work and minutes later her husband confronts her about something she’s done. He threatens divorce and leaves her. As if that’s not bad enough, people start shooting at her. Her story is centered around how any of us must rebuild our lives when everything in our control has come crashing down. It’ll be out by the end of 2015. Watch for the release date on my social media channels and the pre-release to be announced soon on Smashwords.
