What inspired you to write this book?
I wouldn’t necessarily use the word inspired. But “Of Beasts and Bonds” is the second book in my Death and Destiny paranormal romance trilogy, so there was no question I would continue with the series when I finished “Of Fear and Faith.” In fact, the reason I have a trilogy is because I wrote one hellishly long story a few years back, just for fun. When I thought about turning the work into a bona fide novel, I knew it was far too long for a single work. I’m not J.K. Rowling and this isn’t the Harry Potter series. Most people don’t want to read a 600+ page book by an author, least of all an unknown author. So I divided my very rough draft into three manageable parts. For the most part, I stayed true to my draft for “Of Fear and Faith.” For “Of Beasts and Bonds,” I kept most of the ideas but essentially started from scratch, adding, for example, more supporting characters and some kickass scenes of magic. As I mentioned earlier, I’m going to have a new series, which will be a sequel to Death and Destiny. The new series will focus on many of the supporting characters from the trilogy. When readers read “Of Beasts and Bonds” they’ll get a few hints at possible future romantic pairings.
What can we expect from you in the future?
I’m currently working on Of Deception and Divinity. It’s the third and final book in my Death and Destiny paranormal romance trilogy. The book will be released on October 12th of this year. I haven’t yet revealed the cover. That will happen next month. But I can share the blurb with your readers.
The arrival of a new enemy. The start of a greater battle. A destiny to be defended.
A mighty war, waged every 500 years, has returned to the realm of mortals. And with it, the Day of Serpents arrives to wreak havoc upon the world.
Assefa and Sanura struggle to complete their mate bond, as they also continue their fight in this preternatural war of fire versus water. Unseen enemies, surprise magic attacks, and betrayal lurk at every turn for the couple, and revelations about their powers and past come to light.
As Assefa and Sanura fight to seal their bond and love, destiny and divinity may have already sealed their fate.
I’m also participating in a paranormal romance boxset with over a dozen other authors. It’s a sky and sea theme, and I’m writing a novella about dragon shifters. Tentatively, the novella is entitled “Corporate Dragons.”
