“The final book in the Legion series is finished.” I said these words out loud to myself yesterday. There were a lot of conflicting emotions that were swirling around inside me as I said those words. I felt a sense of accomplishment for actually being able to capture this epic story and record it for everyone to enjoy. I also felt a sense of relief because this story has been haunting me for my entire life.
I first started having the series of nightmares that the I Am Legion trilogy was based on when I was a small child. These characters have been my companions as I walked my path in life. I feel like by completing this series I have finally told the story that they were desperate to have told. I don’t know if that means that they will leave me now that I have told their tale or if there is more that they want to say.
I also felt a profound sense of sadness and loss. I found myself feeling depressed because I don’t want Heather and Darrion to leave me. The thought of not having them with me anymore is very hard for me to wrap my head around. Like many of my readers I have grown to love this couple that for better or worse lived their lives on their own terms.
I write my novels in a way that is very different from anyone else. These characters are not just words on a page to me. They come to me night after night in my nightmares. Just like you I have been thrilled by their adventures and shared their pain.
The good news for my readers and myself is this isn’t the end. Heather and Darrion are not the only characters that I carry with me. My dream journals are filled with amazing stories from so many interesting characters. I will continue to tell these amazing stories until the day that I die.
The final novel in the Legion series will be available in the next few days. The title is The Rise Of The Revenant. I hope that you all enjoy this novel as much as I have enjoyed writing it. If you have never read any of my novels I invite you to check it out. I promise you that you will love it.
I Am Legion is the first book in the series and The Surrogate Of Souls is the second. All of my novels are available on Amazon kindle, in paperback, and as audio books. Thank you all for the love and support that you have shown me. I promise each and every one of you that I will continue to work very hard to tell these amazing stories and give you the best novels that I am capable of producing.
