I haven’t been updating much lately because I’ve been really busy, but you can expect at least two new updates today and a few more later this week. 😊
Oh, and one of the posts today will include a character preview and excerpt from The Reign of Darkness! So, keep an eye out for that! ❤️
I spent most of last week in Orange Beach, Alabama, spending time with family and getting a ton of inspiration for the ocean scenes in The Reign of Darkness.
I got horribly sick my first night there because I’m a redhead, and the sun hates me. (No wonder I write about vampires. I basically am one.)
So, I wound up having to spend the second day inside, recovering.
But I got back out there the third day….
…And had a horrible reaction to a jellyfish sting because my skin hates me, too. 😂
I have the worst luck, guys. 😂
But it was all worth it because the ocean was so beautiful. 💙💙💙
The sky and water were this perfect, matching shade of cotton-candy blue, at first.
And then an awesome, darker blue, later. 💙
Pictures don’t really do it justice, but…
Seriously, it was just….gorgeous.
The dolphins came close to shore while we were swimming, which was absolutely amazing.
And most importantly, the kids loved it. ❤️❤️❤️
That’s my youngest son, Rowan (1), in the first picture, and my oldest son, Tucker (6), in the second picture, by the way. 😊
The trip also inspired me to add a beach scene (that I hadn’t planned) to The Reign of Darkness, and I’m now absolutely in love with it. I hope you guys will like it, too. ❤️
P.S. – If you’ve finished The Assassins of Light and are curious about that mysterious, unnamed character in the last scene, you’re going to want to keep an eye out for the excerpt I’m posting later. 😉
