It’s finished. Phew.
For those that have been waiting on the last Feathered book, A Feathered Child is now live at Amazon. I haven’t done the print version yet, but that will be coming soon too.
The first thing you might noticed however is that the cover doesn’t look like the original two books. Oh wait. It does now – because all of the trilogy have had a facelift.
Here they are:
I gave my designer the mockups I’d done and he recreated them with the purchased images and added the colour. At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted colour, but then looking at them altogether, I can see they really draw the eye, which I hope helps more people find them.
Anyway, you’re probably wondering what is A Feathered Child about?
Well, as you can guess from the cover and title, Ruby’s about to give birth (which she does so about 1/3 into the book).
It explores her and Zan’s fears about having a child. Not only what it means for their relationship, but how the world will react. Understandably, Ruby is scared that someone might want to take it from her, given what’s she’s already been through. Zan thinks she’s overreacting, and this creates a wedge between them.
I really wanted to grow Ruby and Zan’s relationship and bring them closer together (after all, they’ve been through a lot together), so this book is much more about their internal struggles (although there are plenty of external problems happening too).
I think it was inevitable they reach this point.
The first book was about external forces keeping them apart (Governor), the second about them learning to deal with each other and adapt to each other’s worlds, but this third really needed for both of them to come together as a whole. It was always clear that they loved and cared for each other (as well as have sizzling chemistry together), but up until now, they still acted like seperate units. This book is about them learning to become a team.
I hope you like it.
