When I started writing Dreams Never Lie, I never imagined that it would birth an entire series. After we released it, my publisher told me he wanted a sequel, so Dreams are Forever was born. Shattered Dreams is next. Still under construction.
In my own personal reading, I hate when a book leaves you hanging, to be continued in the next book. I won’t do that. Each of my books is a complete story in itself. It has a beginning, and an end. The next book, is a completely new story, just using the same characters. It also has a beginning and an end. No cliff hangers.
Now that The Color of Thunder has been released, I’ve worked really hard and now Shattered Dreams is in the editing stage. I had put it on the back burner for a few months but once I jumped back into it, the rest of the book just kind of wrote itself. In this book, the antagonist is the one whose dreams were shattered. I feel so sorry for her and what she went through, I’m really wasn’t sure how I was going to resolve the conflicts.
With Josh and Dodge both on the job trying to solve the mystery, she doesn’t stand a chance …or does she?
Shattered Dreams Available Spring 2020.
“I discovered your books through my dad, and fell in love with Josh in the Dreams Are Forever series. You’ve become my favorite author and I’ll never forget actually getting to meet you when you came to Arkansas to promote your books. I haven’t read The Color of Thunder yet, but I can’t wait to dig in. Love you Elsie!” -JAIA
