It was important to Beth that her main character, Layla, should mature and evolve throughout the three books. She has given careful consideration on how to present her character's story to new readers as well as those who have read the first book (and don't want to be bogged down with back-story). Reader engagement, whether new or returning, will come from her characters' emotional transformation.
"I believe love and forgiveness transforms people, and this is what really changes Layla, even with all the other crazy stuff going on. It is her connection with people, and forgiving, that sets her free and opens her eyes," shared Beth.
"Without giving the story away, it’s a game-changer," Beth continued, "Layla goes from isolated bookworm to a significant global citizen almost overnight. My hope is when readers finish SOUL HERDER they will recognize that this is a story about transformation, connection, power, and fulfilling destiny."
WRITTEN IN TIME will conclude the trilogy. When pressed, Beth revealed that it will go further back into history to unveil how Layla’s prophesy came to be, along with the origins of the Bane's quest for revenge. Beth is aiming for a release towards the end of the year.
I can't wait!
