Try it out. Meditation is good for the soul.
|I loved Vex Hex Smash Smooch, so I got the companion, Sin & Syntax.|
Having grown as a writer, I wanted to take this next book to a whole new level. Snow Dolls was a labor of love. It was painful, it was daunting, and it was glorious. Halfway through, I feared that trying to create a unique world of Dolls and fitting three individual stories that would converge, was more than I was capable. I was wrong of course. :) I wanted to write that story because I knew it would be hard and it begged to be told. What I learned of myself was priceless.
Now it's on to the world of Modi's and I find myself hungry for another grand challenge. I wrote Violet Storm (the first book in the Modi series) over three years ago. And since then, there has been a surge in Dystopian novels with an X-men-like twist. Characters have powers, the laws of the new world are crappy, and people must face dark truths to survive. So how do I make this story compelling despite what feels like a very saturated genre? Where can I infuse authenticity and originality?

The answer is in the plot and the characters.
I'm challenging myself to do what I did in Violet Storm and surprise the heck out of my readers. It's what they loved in VS, and I'm going to do my damnedest to make magic happen again.
Wish me luck.
Oh, and try out the 4-7-8 meditation exercise and tell me what you think! :)
