Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This story is unlike anything I have ever written before in my life. It came together fairly quickly because I got the idea for this story about 3 weeks after I published Ubiquitous Aspirations. In that post, I mentioned having already completed a couple of other short stories and not being sure what to do with them. Encroachment is the result of me coming to the decision to put the other stories on hold.

I came around to writing Encroachment because I wanted to elaborate on The Elders from Living Through the Glass. Ubiquitous Aspirations was about Oscar and this story is about Manuel. In Living Through the Glass, I don't delve too much into the personalities of The Elders outside of Oscar and Sunjata, so Manuel isn't much of a focal character and his fate is decided towards the end of Living Through the Glass.

I wanted to go into a couple of radically different directions with Encroachment. At first I kicked around ideas of going into an adult direction with this story, but as I was writing, I found it very difficult and eventually decided against it. I would say the story is PG-13 in nature. There's nothing overtly racy about this story. I wanted to pivot away from romance in this book. As a female author, there are some challenges to writing a story from a male perspective and it's a challenge I'm willing to undertake because all of the stories I am working to release in the near future are all centered around men being the primary characters. With that being said, I am not going to shy away from touching on misogynistic topics and having some of my characters embody being downright sexist. While not sexist, Manuel does have less than honorable mannerisms when dealing with women. I am absolutely not saying that to mean that all of my male characters are going to be disgusting pigs, but on that same note, I am not going for the prince charming look for all of my male characters either. As I've stated before, I want my characters to be the type of people who know right from wrong and still remain accountable for their decisions. It is a part of the human element that I wish to highlight in my stories.

Encroachment is a far different story from Ubiquitous Aspirations. There is no redemption for Manuel in this story. I chose to intentionally leave an open-ended route when it comes to defining his legacy. The major reason for this is because there is a point in the story that parallels a major event in Living Through the Glass and it leaves an opening for me to elaborate on why this event occurs in the next book in this series. This story has some hidden gems in them. On the surface, the story can be read and digested as a standalone story without having to read Ubiquitous Aspirations or Living Through the Glass, but if one reads Living Through the Glass and this story, then some of those underlying elements will become obvious.
