Twisting it Up

It started with a simple email from my publisher. "Hey Stacey, just read through The Conduit again. I had an idea about the ending. What if..."

What followed blew the back of my head out. (Figuratively. My brain's still intact.) He suggested a small tweak that opens up avenues for the series and leads into book two with a smooth continuity. And writing this new twist ending was a blast. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that I got to take a character I viewed and wrote in one way and "reinvent" them. Wickedly fun!

Of course the bad news with this, if you can consider it that, is that this new development has forced some rewrites of book two. This is only bad for those of you that have read Conduit and are hounding me for the sequel. Now before you storm my house with torches and pitchforks let me just say that these changes are for the best and will only make Embrace of the Call that much more fun! I ask that you please put down your pitchforks and try to be patient just a little bit longer. If you can't do that then please at least give me a ten minute head start...

So, I have hinted at a twist for a character. Who do you think it is? Who would you like it to be?

  1. Well since I KNOW who it is...I won't guess.

    I'm glad it all worked with where you wanted the story to go but I now both need to read the new ending and get Embrace SOON!!!

    I will get a pitchfork, I swear...
