From the Author
The plot for Awaken evolved over four serious draft revisions. The manuscript doesn't look anything like the first in terms of plot structure, but the overall concept of the paranormal aspects remain in tacked. I still would like to rework it one last time and add more back story to the Council of Souls. For now, I'm adding and expanding that in the next book, Oblivion.
For me writing paranormal, fantasy, and science fiction is not for the faint of heart. I find paranormal stories take an enormous amount of brain power. Not only are you dealing with a plot and character development, you have to remember what ability each character has and how they work together. Then to top it off you have to create an entire world. I get very exhausted. But I wouldn't have it any other way.
To offset the grinding out of the paranormal, I enjoy writing contemporary romance. It flows easier because I'm dealing with normal characters and the everyday world.
