I was just reminded of this blog hop today. Usually I’m better prepared but this year has been a roller coaster so far and the ride is not ending any time soon. So this month you will get a mixed bag of posts. I will try and do two mini posts for each letter, one inspirational as has been my April posts, but I am also in the process of gearing up for the release of the first book in my YA Christian Fantasy trilogy on April 26 so I will include a fact about my book in each of my daily posts.
So here we go April 1: A is for Allelujah
How exciting that April 1 is the day after Easter this year. Allelujah: He is Risen. Jesus has set us free.
A is for Aaron/Airyn
Aaron/Airyn is one of the main characters in my trilogy. Although he doesn’t appear till the end of the second book Palace of Three Crosses, this young man paid a pivotal role in the beginning of the writing process for the trilogy. Part of Aaron’s story was written first, and a small book Aaron’s Revenge was even self published first. As I finished writing this excerpt from Aaron’s life I realized there was so much more story to tell, like how that young man got to the point where that story started. These thoughts gave birth to the Palace of the Twelve Pillars trilogy. With that realization Aaron’s father, uncle and a whole slew of other characters took center stage to contribute to the saga. You will hear more about them in the coming month. Just remember that Aaron/Airyn started it all.
I guess I should quickly explain the two spellings. He started out as Aaron, but as I got into the third book found the need for him to have two names yet only one name, so to some of the characters he became known as Aaron, while to others he became known as Airyn.
To get anymore details than that you will have to read the books.
