Book Tour: Bloodstone Saga Giveaway & Guest Post

Friday, December 23, 2011

Today, we have Courtney Cole with us on the blog. She's talking about the future and her series, the Bloodstone saga.
Courtney Cole is a YA novelist who loves thunderstorms, cake batter and insane amounts of coffee. She wrote her first story at the age of 9, although thankfully it has remained hidden away in an old cedar chest beneath musty blankets. Her more recent efforts are much better.

Find Courtney on her website, Facebook, Twitter, and GoodReads.
Here's a little about her second book in the series, Fated.
Seventeen-year old Macy Lockhart thought she had it all figured out.

As a Keeper in the ancient organization, the Order of the Moirae, she literally holds fate in her hands. She lives over and over in lives that end tragically; all to further the good of mankind as she does her part to control destiny.
But there’s one lesson that she hasn’t learned well enough. Nothing is ever what it seems.

Startling new revelations about her identity surface and Macy realizes that she’s more important than she ever imagined.

As she struggles to grasp her new reality, everyone she loves is threatened. Is she strong enough to save them all?
Fated on GoodReads, Amazon, B&N, and Indiebound.

Knowing the Future

When did I first know that Every Last Kiss would be a series? I knew before I started writing it. You see, Every Last Kiss isn’t where the story really begins… It is a prequel of sorts. I really debated on where to begin but I ended up writing Every Last Kiss the way that I did because I needed for readers to see how the Fates had tormented my main character throughout the millennia.

So, I knew when I was brainstorming my book, before I had even written one word, that it would be a
series. I just didn’t know how many books it would need. I almost tried to cram everything into three
books, but as I was writing With My Last Breath, that just didn’t feel right. In order to fully discover the
Underworld (which is the setting for My Tattered Bonds), I really needed a full novel.

I did NOT know from the beginning where the third or fourth book would be set—I knew exactly how I wanted book one and two, but books three and four were in the air until I started writing them. But the details leading up to them just fell into place perfectly to create the settings that I eventually ended up with. I love it when that happens!

Thank you so much to Courtney for her post today!
