Thanks, Beth! Now let's meet Ember Wilson, my kickass female lead in the upcoming sci-fi romance release, Amethyst Chronicles: Winter's Kiss
What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person? Ember Wilson and she's fictional
When and where is the story set? 1000 years from the end of the third book in my Mirrors series. This is a spin off of sorts.
What should we know about him/her? She's the leader of a genetically enhanced group of humans and she has a HUGE chip on her shoulder.
What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life? After years of harsh and unpredictable weather, Earth can no longer grow most of it's own crops. Food has to be outsourced to other worlds. A scientist named Clayton Rudo has announced he has a weather machine which will control Earth's climate, make it steady, and reverse the damage done so we can sustain ourselves again. However, Ember learns he really plans to use it to control Earth.
What is the personal goal of the character? To kill Rudo and restore Earth.
Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it? This is the first in a new sci-fi romance series. Amethyst Chronicles will span many books and may have a spin-off or two of it's own. Winter's Kiss is the set title. Stay tuned to this blog for updates!
When can we expect the book to be published? I don't have a set date yet, but possibly October or maybe middle of September.
So, that's Ember! And now, I shall tag...
