REMINDER :) THE REIGN OF A QUEEN IS COMING SOON!!!!!! Just a couple of weeks now (March. 11, 2020) and Reign of a Queen will be live on Amazon :) I am so excited about this first series of three books being completed and Rayelynn, Farrow and Drayden's stories told.

After that, the next book will be a stand-alone, Desdemona due out in the summer of 2020...more on that later.

So...as I have started writing books under Azriel Hope, I've been learning a lot about self-publishing. As I learn, I adjust. I am so grateful that people are enjoying The Fall of Arcades and The Rise of a King and I'm so excited to publish the Reign of a Queen which I think is the best of all three books. However, with that said, I have gotten a few bad reviews for The Fall of Arcades to accompany the many good ones.

It was the first book in the series and I wrote it with so much passion, my beta readers loved it, my editor loved it and well...I thought the world would love it. But after some very wel…

Changing the Cover Art for The Reign of a Queen and Music that Inspired the Story

Image
I just never was that into my book cover for The Reign of a Queen, I thought it was sort of cheesy, but then I didn't, then I did, and then I found this!!!!!! YES! This one tells the story much better.
My fourteen year old agrees this is the one. So...three more weeks and The Reign of a Queen will be here. 
As a tidbit to tempt you I'm including a few songs that are fueling the writing at the moment. 
I Want You to Want Me Gary Jules I love this... it's so haunting...Farrow's Song


This is also so sad and beautiful
Jasmine Thompson cover of Everybody Hurts ..Rayelynn's Song




So dark, deep and uplifting...Drayden's song.
Disturbed - Sounds of Silence


and Hallelujah by Pentatonix


and lastly, my daughter's choir :) but seriously this song got me...and it definitely foreshadows the end of this book and the trilogy :)
Sisi ni Moja (One World One People)

Music for The Rise of a King

Image
Music, as well as pictures, is another thing that inspires me to write, often lingering in my head for days and days on end. I always write with music in my mind. This is the music that inspired Rise of a King.



Sometimes there's no rhyme or reason to why I listen to certain songs, but they just bring it out of me...whatever it is I need.

So for the Rise of a King, the story is dark, it's lonely and it's hopeful. So songs that expressed longing were the ones that drew me in. For whatever reason, I was obsessed with the Greatest Showman...so here are the two that stayed with me hard!

Rewrite the Stars. I feel like this is Drayden being romantic. He wants what he wants, even though it might be for the wrong reasons...he still is hopeful about it.


The next one is also from the Greatest Showman.

Never Enough. For this song, the context comes from Rayelynn's point of view. No matter what Drayden offers her and all that he tries to woo her with will never be enough because s…
