So after a restless sleep, I finally had a chance to get some shut eye. When my head hit the pillow, I was immediately woken. You might think it was the girls, because well it usually is. However, this time was a different story. My mind was racing with new ideas for a story that I had put on the back burner a long time ago–my Terrahtu series. It was never written with the romantic flare that my Destined Series was, so I played around with the idea of changing Terrahtu so that it was geared toward a younger audience, but I just wasn’t ready to take the leap, because writing them under my current pen name just would not make sense and everyone knows the more books you have out there, the better your sales are. I have two published(In Flames & In Rapture), one in editing(The Land of the Shadows), another near completion(In Chains) and a fifth one at least 1/2 way written(Saving Grace). All of these are adult books. So I guess it is not a terrible time to dabble in the young adult genre.
My plans? Terrahtu. Five books surrounding the five original characters from my first draft set on the planet Terrahtu. Magneira is book one, although it’s story line and timeline coincide with Mag Book 2, which is why I want them to be released almost simultaneously. Book 3 would be Kilana and her adventures. I have a deep fondness for this character. Book 4 is Wilder, my very first attempt at writing a shapeshifter. I must have enjoyed him too, for I’ve been writing about them ever since. Book 5 is The Collective(which is the one that has no content written as of yet). The rest of them are somewhere between 1/2 top 1/4 finished on each of them. I guess it wasn’t such a bad thing to write such a huge book the first time. It was 44 long chapters and close to 900 pages long. I decided a few years ago to break them into separate stories, but since then have realized I love each character enough to devote an entire book to each. Will these books be feature by Elissa Daye, not likely. I’ve chosen a different pen name for that: Emma Davis. Why? Because I don’t want to write a wholesome young adult book under the same pen that writes hot spicy romance novels. (Me wholesome, well yes, most of the time).
