List of all things ENTWINED
Today I thought I'd share a list of 10 Interesting Facts about Entwined...
One. I've mentioned this before but I actually wrote Entwined about 7 years ago but never did anything with it because I had the idea for Time After Time and wanted to get working on that novel. So Entwined was popped into my harddrive and forgotten about until earlier this year when I pulled it out and read through it....
Two. Faery and Demon Worlds. For Entwined I created my own world, drawing on the tales and stories of faeries and demons that already exist the world over. I pulled on Irish folk tales as well as Romanian stories and Germany fairy tales. It is a world I created and the faeries are as I imagined them, the demons are as I want them to behave. I have taken creative liberties with the notion of faeries and demons to create a world that already exists in my head.
Three The coffee shop in Holyoake is called Clouds and the bar that Nate likes to hang out in is called The Devils Lair which epitomises the star crossed lovers.
Four The Playlist. I love the playlist and had it playing whenever I sat down to work on Entwined. It has a mix of haunting and sexy love songs. You can check it out in yesterdays post here
Five The cover... I LOVE the cover that Jay Aheer at Evernight Teen produced for me but it was nothing like I'd ever imagined it would be. I imagined clouds, light colours, pretty dresses and wings... but this...well this just WORKS and I cannot wait to see what she puts together for Entangled and Enchanted.
Six Eve actually had FIVE brothers in the original story. Five guardian angels watching over her. But on the second read through I decided that five guardian angels was a little excessive even for a faery princess.
Seven I love the character of Lucan. He's one of my favourites. Read it and you will all think I am crazy or a little sick, but I can't help it. He's been one of my favourite characters to write ever and I can't wait to delve further into his story.
Eight This will be my first book in print. It's my eighth (?) published novel but for some reason I have never felt like a real author. I just want to hold one of my books in my hands so that it finally feels real.
Nine Entwined is divided into two parts. This is for good reason - mostly to show the growth of Eve (in lots of ways but you'll have to read to find out how).
Ten Entwined was always meant to be a standalone. No sequel. But the ending never felt right and I felt like there was more to Eve and Nate's stories so I began writing a sequel. I am now planning a third book in the series (only three I promise) and have some ideas of spin off books for other characters. I feel like David has a great story to share as well as Mirelle, and of course there is Gloriana, Marigold, Lucan and a whole host of other characters who might one day want to share their own tales of romance.

I am so excited for the release of ENTWINED!! I honestly love this story, the world that Eve is about to learn and the world that Nate comes from.
I had so much fun writing this story and am enjoying the writing process for Book 2, Entangled even more.
