It’s true. I am still on the skeleton of the book, but I am writing it. I have read hundreds and hundreds of books over the years (maybe even pushing that thousand plus mark), and I decided it was time. At the end of every well written book I get that “post-book depression.” I want more of the story. I want more of the character’s lives. As I close the last page I want to know who these characters are, where do they live, and what happened after the story ended? During the story I became best friends with the characters and after the last page they’re gone. They have moved away and there is a good possibility I will never see them again. Enough is enough. I’m tired of saying goodbye to these wonderful characters and by writing my own story I will have the privilege of getting to know each and every one of them. Better still, if there is anyone in the book I don’t like I can kill them, or just edit them out of the book, and if there is someone I truly want to know better they may return in future stories so you too can get to know them better.
“The Manx” is my debut into the world of book writing. Kat Manning, and all the rest of her friends, will be off on the adventure of a lifetime. As she saves magic from being completely drained from the world, she will face trials, pain, growth, and a rainbow of joys. She will visit Between where she meets her Guide, all the while battling against the evil forces of King Magnus. Of course, a story of magic wouldn’t be complete without a cast of fairies, knights, and few Buggans just to keep it fun.
I look forward to sharing this story with you and to those of you who actually purchase a copy and read it from start to finish, I say, “Gur mie eu!”
