A month ago I released the final book in my Earth Angel Series – book 10, The Twin Flame Resolution.
What a ride it has been! 9 years of writing, 7 years of publishing, 10 books, 607,158 words, 158 characters.
I haven’t really known how to feel for the last few weeks. In the run up to publication I was so excited, because this meant I could now turn to other projects that have been impatiently waiting in the wings. I was also excited because I knew that book 10 held some ideas that were bound to annoy people. (Not that I love annoying people, but I do love a good twist)
But once it was out there in the world, I felt… sad.
This world of faeries, angels, starpeople and old souls has been my home for nearly a decade, and I love the characters, the places and the stories. So I felt a bit lost. Even though I already have three books lined up to release by Christmas, so it’s not like I don’t have plenty to be getting on with.
I feel the same way when I finish watching seasons of TV shows. Or a series of books I have followed for years. There’s a sense of completion but also a sense of loss. Because now it’s time to return to the ‘real’ world, and leave the characters behind within the pages. At least there is a sense of completion. There is a series of books I read as a teenager, which was never completed. 18 years later, I still await the final book!
If you have been reading the Earth Angel Series, how do you feel about it completing? And what did you think of book 10? (Try not to give too many spoilers 😉 ) Let me know in the comments below.
No doubt I will spring back, and I will try to blog a little more regularly! In fact, I have been working on a brand new project that will be released in Sept, look out for posts on that soon!
I thought this book was quite in keeping with the rest of the series and the ending was very fitting. Steve, on the other hand, feels there is still so much more you could explore. Still enough associated material to come back to and write the occasional ‘sequel’ we think xxx

Thank you Lesley! Yes I feel too that it rounded things off nicely, but yes, there may well be more to explore, it just felt like a good place to pause for a while… who know what might happen in the future!
