...is the title of the next Psy-Changeling book. I'm sure you can all guess who the heroine is!
Silver Silence kicks off season two of the series. The books in season one all had three-word titles, but for this next arc of the series, we're switching it up to two-word titles. (Yes, we like to live dangerously :D).
The series title will also be changing slightly from the Psy-Changeling Series, to the Psy-Changeling Trinity Series.
A Psy-Changeling Trinity Novel
Why the series title change?
As I started to think about Silver Silence, I realized it would be a very good entry point into the series. We're going to be meeting new characters, seeing a new part of the Psy-Changeling world.
The series title change means Silver Silence will be listed as book 1 of the Psy-Changeling Trinity series rather than book 16 of the Psy-Changeling series.
This'll also make it easier for things like my website, so the book lists can be neatly separated out. Right now, the series list is in danger of falling off the page on the main menu!
If I've read the entire Psy-Changeling series, will this feel like a continuation?
Yes. While Silver Silence is a great intro into the series, if you're already familiar with the world, then you'll see deeper layers of meaning within each story. And of course, you'll come into it with a lot of knowledge about all the events that have led up to this point.
Does this mean all the books will be about the Trinity Accord?
No. In fact, the Trinity Accord plays only a minor role in Silver Silence.
The reason for choosing Psy-Changeling Trinity as the series title is that in my head, this is the Trinity arc, while season one was the Silence arc. It doesn't mean everything focuses around Trinity - it just represents this new phase in the Psy-Changeling world.
Does the new series arc mean we're leaving the previous characters totally behind?
No. We will be meeting new characters and going into new territories, but this is a living, breathing world, so people's paths do cross.
Also, we'll be circling back to some previous characters who haven't had their stories yet.
If I haven't read a single Psy-Changeling story, will I understand Silver Silence?
Absolutely. And hopefully, it'll tempt you to go back and catch up on season one!
Will my favorite characters appear?
If they're necessary to the story. Given the sprawling cast, not everyone can return. Allegiance of Honor was a soft goodbye to some characters - I say soft because if they have a natural part to play in a particular storyline in the future, you'll see them again.
How many books will be in season two?
I never know how many books it'll take to complete a story arc so I can't give you a number, but I have plans for plenty more Psy-Changeling goodness!
Who is the hero of Silver Silence?
I recently turned in the first few chapters of the book to my editor and she loved it, so we should have a blurb soonish. Until then, I'll tell you that Silver's hero is most unexpected. I certainly wasn't expecting him to knock on Silver's door at seven in the morning like he had every right to be there. Once again, I learn never to predict what my characters will do!
Tell me more!
I've almost completed the first draft of the book. This doesn't mean it's finished. I do multiple drafts - my first drafts are the skeleton, with more layers going on draft by draft. Right now, I've been focusing mostly on the romance.
Silver and her hero are unlike any other pairing in the series to date.
I hope that answers most of your burning questions! I'll release the blurb as soon as it's finalized! Until then, anyone want to guess at the identity of Silver's hero?
