Knowing the Perspective Series Could Do Better

Megan and Irys just weren’t saying what we intended them to say anymore. So, we fixed it.

Amanda (Giasson, Perspective series co-author) and I have always been proud of Love at First Plight. That said, language has changed a lot since that book was first published in 2015.  It’s been a heck of a seven years for the evolution of words and expressions. To be honest, I couldn’t be happier about that. That said, because language is evolving as quickly as it is, the first volume in the Perspective book series stopped being what we wanted it to be.

Eureka! Moment Fail

Ever had one of those moments when you’re positive you’ll remember some silly little thing that was once significant to you at a certain point in your life, but no matter how you try to trigger your memory you can’t recall it – or worse – you remember it wrong?

The Gist

Love at First Plight is the first book of the young adult/new adult fantasy fiction series called Perspective. It’s set on another world called Qarradune, where there are at least a couple of countries we get to know – Kavylak and Syliza.  Throughout the book, we follow the two main characters, Megan Wynters and Irys Godeleva.  Megan’s an 18 year old from Earth who has absolutely no idea why or how she landed on Qarradune.  Irys is the same age (I think) and was raised in extreme privilege in Syliza, which is a country that gave me the impression of being like a cooler and more mystical version of Victorian England.  Syliza…

Recognition and Acceptance

It’s not you, Megan. It’s me.

We’ve started writing the sequel to Love at First Plight, and I am finding the process to be both easy and a challenge at the same time. I love writing my character, Megan Wynters. I really do. Slipping into her character is like sliding my feet into my favourite and most comfortable pair of shoes or like wrapping myself in a warm blanket.

Being a Guest Author for the First Time

D.E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read) Day at Humberwood Downs JMA

DEAR Day Guest Author VisitOne of the most thrilling and nerve-wracking experiences that a debut author can undergo, in our opinion, is that first guest author appearance in front of a very large group of people. For us (Amanda Giasson and Julie B. Campbell), it was a three-fer; one event broken down into three groups. But we’ve gone ahead of ourselves.

Launching a Book Cover – Getting a Reader to Look Inside!

(Keep Reading – Tianna Holley’s latest book cover reveal is included in this post!!!)

Book cover young adult fictionWe’ve all heard the expression “don’t judge a book by its cover”. It’s a wonderful phrase that is true in its literal and its figurative meanings. Still, as is the case with all great advice (which also includes: “don’t pick at it,” “just ignore him/her and he/she will go away,” and “don’t eat a whole pan of brownies for breakfast”), we tend to know how valuable it is, and yet still go ahead and do exactly the opposite of what it recommends.

I’m not Ashamed to Say I’ve Cosplayed

In honour of “Fun Fact Friday” I thought I’d share a fact about myself that, in the past, I was hesitant to admit (even to my best friend, Julie) because I was afraid that I would be judged for liking something that was once typically considered to be an interest that appealed to only kids and teens.

Am I Lost in a Fictional World?

Can creative writing be considered a mental illness?

Creative writing crazinessIf you love it too much, does it actually take over your mind, for good?

I’m a proud, card-carrying weirdo, and I’m certainly a top contender for geek-of-the-year (for over thirty years, running), but when it comes to writing the Perspective book series with Amanda, I am taken to an entirely different oddity plane. I stop living here and I start living on an entirely different world that exists inside my head.
