Then Sarn decided he could not drop some of the loose ends from book 1. So I let him investigate, and it put an interesting spin on the epic tale I’d already crafted. You see, I wrote the end of Faceted before I wrote Enchanted. So Faceted had no beginning.
It’s me, Melinda, the author of Curse Breaker: Enchanted and I’ve got a confession to make.
I’m addicted to audiobooks.
My ears feel naked without my headphones. I have a one-book-a-day habit. What I’m reading tends to color what I’m writing. I admit it. This habit affects my writing.
Take Enchanted, the first book of the Curse Breaker Saga. I edited it while binge listening at work to Louse Penny’s Inspector Gamache books–an addictive police procedural/cozy mystery mash-up series. So Enchanted became a fantastic mystery.
Book two, Faceted, is shaping up to be Tolkien shakes hands with Harry Bosch because I read the entire detective series while writing it. I blame Audible’s holiday sale for introducing me to Michael Connelly’s audiobooks. I came into the series at Bloodwork, and it sucked me in.
As you can imagine, Sarn’s son was not happy about any of this, but Ran is too young to have a say in the plot. This is why Ran has hijacked my newsletter. I know what he’s up to. He’ll get his ‘nice ad-ven-ture’ but on my terms.
If you love Sarn and his son, then you’ll love my newsletter. Each week, Ran takes readers behind and between the scenes. His little adventures often involve other characters from the series without their consent. If you’d like to add a dash of fantastic fun to your inbox, sign up HERE.
