It seems strange to write the backstory of a character after you complete a trilogy, doesn't it? That's exactly what I ended up doing. Why? Readers wanted more of the series. They wanted more from the dark and mysterious sculptor Antoine. I knew his story, but the readers wanted more details about it as well.
Since Antoine is only seen through other characters eyes throughout the series, I had fun writing his story and how he came to the chateau in Darkness Rising. This story is told through Antoine's eyes. Finally he has his chance to tell his tale.
Darkness Rising was just released. And it's only 99 cents for the moment. Read on for an excerpt.
New Release! Darkness Rising
