Today’s Word Wednesday is not really about the meaning of words. Normally I would sit here at my desk and pound out some interesting facts about definitions and word origins, but today we are going to be more philosophical. And I’m going to apologize for disregarding fan input during my Facebook poll…
To anyone who actually voted on book titles for Book 3, I’m sorry that I couldn’t take your advice. While I was editing Book 3, I couldn’t help but feel that my title was mismatched to the contents of the story. After all, when your major characters are dealing with amnesia, flashbacks, and the consequences of remembering or not remembering something, it’s hard to justify a title about treasures.
There were NO treasures discussed in any material way in Book 3. So “Sea Treasures” is just a bad name for that book. “Sea Memories,” however, though perhaps less catchy or less glamorous, hits a theme in the book that I would have been remiss not to follow.
I couldn’t be more excited to tell you that the third book in the Sea Deception series, Sea Memories, comes out tomorrow.
This is easily my favorite book cover in the series so far.
This book is the culmination of several years’ worth of effort. I decided to write three books and release them together, an undertaking that pushed the bounds of my skill set. I’m really proud to say that I did it.
However, I’m also really excited to take a moment to take a deep breath before diving into my next writing project. I’ve got the next book in the series mostly plotted and a children’s book’s illustrations to focus on next.
I can’t wait to hear what you think of Kai and Maryn’s latest adventures.
Of course, if you haven’t read the first book in the series, you definitely need to start there.
