Oh my word, can you believe there’s less than a month to go until the release of my first novel with J. Taylor Publishing? Because believing it is coming a little bit hard, for me!
As a little warm-up to help get all of us into an INSPIRED mood, I decided to sit a few of the novel’s main characters down for a quickie Q&A in which we cover all the basic who, what where, when, and whys. To start, meet Abishan!
Who are you?
He swishes his tail in idle irritation. “If you don’t know, you can’t be local. Every creature in my territory recognizes me for what I am: Their sovereign god, the quintessence of cats.”
What one word do you think best describes you?
“‘Feline’. That covers all the basics; strength, elegance, dignity, all around superiority…”
Where do you feel most at home?
“In the sheltered shadows of a lush, green jungle. Or in a warm lap, when the whim strikes.”
When is your favorite moment in “Inspired”?
“Mm, I don’t know. I like it when I’m eating.”
Why do you want your story told?
“Why wouldn’t I? It’s about a cat god. That’s a good story.”
For a muse like Lucianíel, one story’s end is another’s beginning.
In the wake of his author’s sudden death, Luc takes ownership of her surviving creations—four fantastical characters with tales yet to be told—saving them from unwritten lives crumbling around them and giving them a second chance at a literary future.
Luc finds that chance in the unsuspecting mind of Annabelle Iole Gray, a quirky teen with her head in the clouds, nose in a book, and imagination ripe for a brilliant muse’s inspiration.
Or so he hopes.
Neither Luc nor Annabelle, however, realize all they’ve undertaken. Even with a to-write list including accounts of a shape-shifting cat creature, gentle knight-in-training, vigilante skater girl, and a mystery boy smothering in unspoken fear, the most remarkable saga created between author and muse just may turn out to be one stranger than fiction.
INSPIRED (and Abishan) – coming March 17th!
