This evening, I had the pleasure of meeting Kristi Cook. It was an intimate event with a small group of fans asking questions. At some points it felt more like a conversation, which I thought was great. Kristi also announced the title for the third book, which she hasn't posted anywhere yet. She said it was ok for us to post if we wanted, so here it is: Eternal. I can't wait to see the cover. I have no idea why, but I think a deep purple would look great next the Haven and Mirage.
We learned that Violet was originally names Ashton, but the publisher was weary of the two main characters both having names begin with A. And they thought the Ashton was a bit gender ambiguous, which could also lead to confusion. Kristi loved Ashton, so it was very hard to change her name. We also learned that the books have released so far apart (more than a year between each) because the publisher acquired the titles one at a time. I love learning more about an author's writing process and road to publishing.
She even had sharpies to go along with each book's cover. I love them!
