In just a few days on October 10, the final novel in the Fae of Calaveras series will be published, bringing Rosa’s journey to an end. This is a bittersweet moment for both Rosa and me—for Rosa because her ending is not entirely happy, and for me, because this trilogy was my first series that I finished. Three books may not be a lot for an experienced author, but for me, it was a huge accomplishment. This day represents the culmination of three years of work for me and a huge learning process as I published my first book.
Of course, I didn’t get here on my own. The support and encouragement of my family and my fans has been huge. Every time that I get a review or a personal letter that says “I can’t wait for the next book!”, that helps to spur me forward. I started writing this series for myself, but I finished it because I knew that there were people waiting to read it. So thank you, everyone!
Rosa’s journey has been rockier. She’s made and lost friends along the way, fallen in and out of love, trusted the wrong people and doubted the ones who stayed loyal to her. It was important to me that I showed her making mistakes and dealing with the consequences of her actions, while also showing that the antagonist, her mother, had both good and bad qualities.
But for better or worse, her journey is now ended. The struggle between her and her mother is finished. In the future, I might write more books about other characters—Ashleigh, Heather, and maybe even Akasha all have their own stories to tell. However, that will be starting a new series.
