With my last two excerpts, I wanted to provide a sense of the story and its characters. Today, I wanted to share an excerpt delving into the story’s darker, more dramatic aspects. Enjoy!

Here’s Another Excerpt from My New Novel, ANNABELLE

It’s only two weeks left until my newest short novel, ANNABELLE, becomes available digitally. To mark this moment here’s another excerpt from my book. This one is a bit shorter than the last one but gives further insight into a character who maybe knows Annabelle more than anyone else: her mother.

Here’s The Cover of My New Book, ANNABELLE

It’s time, everyone! The cover of my book is finally here and I’m so excited to share it because it is absolutely beautiful. Here it is.

Last year when I released my first short novel I couldn’t have been more thrilled. To now be on the verge of releasing my second book in my YA-fantasy series, The Women of Adalor is utterly thrilling.

For me, a book doesn’t truly come to life until the cover is finalized and this cover, drawn by the ultra-talented artist, Uzuri Art, is far better than I could’ve ever imagined.

ANNABELLE will be available digitally on Amazon, Kindle, and Goodreads on March 25.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

His goal is to learn about Annabelle Vicstoria’s life through the accounts of those whose lives she impacted. So, with no further delay, here’s the excerpt.

What’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Novel?

Star Wars is a fun franchise because of its gripping movies, lovable characters, and intertwining tales of delusions and grandeur, but it can also be just as fascinating for all of its seemingly endless content.

Star Wars novels are some of the best books you could ever read, providing brand new stories that either enlighten one’s view of a certain character known in the movies or introducing us to brand new characters in brand new corners of the galaxy that haven’t been explored yet.

My favorite Star Wars novel is the type that expands upon the movies. You know, the ones that give a certain favorite character more depth or helps expand my knowledge of a certain film.

That description fits such novels such as Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel, written by James Luceno, The Legends of Luke Skywalker, written by Ken Liu, or Phasma, written by Delilah S. Dawson. These three novels are superb, delving into the backstories of characters like Galen and Lyra Erso in Catalyst, providing several accounts of Luke’s awesomeness through the eyes of others in The Legends of Luke Skywalker, or telling us Phasma’s origin story in, you guessed it, Phasma.

But my favorite Star Wars novel of all just so happens to be the extended novelization of The Last Jedi. Jason Fry took Rian Johnson’s material and expanded it in a way where I could see the brilliance of the film, a brilliance that was not translated very well in the actual movie. The novel helped give Rose’s relationship with Finn more depth, we got to see why Poe Dameron ended up running around like a chicken with his head cut off, and Rey’s urge to the Dark Side was also elaborated upon as well.

It was absolutely fascinating, brilliant, oh I could give it so much praise, but it is undoubtedly my favorite Star Wars novel, as of right now. I’m really intrigued in finally reading Queen’s Shadow and Queen’s Peril, written by E. K. Johnston because FINALLY we’re getting a story that features Padme Amidala. That should be fun indeed.

What’s your favorite Star Wars novel? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force be with you.
