The Joys and Tears of Finishing a Series

Though the Tiger’s Curse series was my first series, it was not the first one I finished. Due to unforeseen issues, I signed a contract to begin my second series, the Reawakened series, before the tiger series was completed. As much as I love the Reawakened series, my mind was still drawn back to my tigers. I was horribly afraid I would forget everything and would mess it up entirely if I waited too long to write the end. 

Because of this, I asked my agent to negotiate extra time and permission to publish into my next book contract and my editor and publisher thankfully agreed. Immediately after turning in Reunited, I began work on Tiger’s Dream. It was a difficult process in the beginning. I had to reread the entire series and take mountains of notes. There were a lot of wincing moments as I read lines that could have been written better, but, despite that, I fell just as in love with the story as I had been in the beginning. 

These characters felt comfortable. They felt like friends. I loved them and wanted them all to get their happy endings. There were many tears in the reread as my heart broke anew for the ones who were lost on the journey, but I was especially emotional at the end. My poor tigers were left in a place that wasn’t quite right and that needed to be addressed. 

Once I began, the book flowed easily. Despite its incredible length, I wrote it quickly. I always knew how the ending would go and when I got there I sobbed as I wrote every word, not only because it was emotional but because I knew it was now time to let them go. Their story was finished. I was finished. Now the only thing that remains, is to share it with my readers.

A tiger left behind.

A goddess in need of an ally.

Stranded in a time and place he never wished for, Kishan Rajaram must carry out his destiny of assisting the beautiful yet extremely irritable goddess Durga. This daunting task is not made easy by the fact that he must also face the truth about the girl he loves and the brother who stole her away.

When the wily shaman Phet appears and tells Kishan that Kelsey needs him, he jumps at the chance to see her again. In his efforts to save her, Kishan discovers that the curse he thought was over is just beginning. As time unravels around him, Kishan realizes that the fates of all those he holds dear lie in hands.

The goddess’s power hangs in the balance. Kishan has no choice but to sacrifice the unthinkable to fight the dark forces swirling around the woman he’s charged to protect. As he does, he discovers that love and loyalty create their own magic and accepts that he must decide his destiny once and for all.

Tiger’s Dream is the conclusion to the epic Tiger’s Curse fantasy romance series that left you breathless.
