Inspiration Board - Madison

Hello Beautiful People!

This time of year is always busy for the Tyner clan. Homeschool begins for the boy and I’m going to attempt to bring my 2-year-old in some activities – Lord help me! We also love to vacation this time of year. This weekend, I get the wonderful opportunity to go on a mom-cation with my mommy group. It will be nice to have a weekend out with the girls.

Pretty soon, we will be visiting Big Bend National Park and some of the surrounding area so be prepared for my social media to blast plenty of pictures. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to go, the area is where I will be setting my duology that will be published after I finish the Caelian cycle. 

Today we're going to look at...

Madison

Madison is probably my favorite character in Lost, but there is a new character being introduced in Bound that I adore as well and would probably have to fight for top spot. Knowing Madison, she would take me up on that offer. It’s probably narcissistic that I love Madison so much because according to those who know me, she is the one character most like my own personality.

That may or may not be so, but I do know that I didn’t base her off myself (not intentionally). Madison’s character came from the days when I worked with teenagers at my church. I had the opportunity to work with some girls who were hardened by their different lives and it was those girls who my heart spoke to the most. Each girl had a different story and each dealt with the hardships in their life from mild personality quirks to some self-destructive behavior. Madison is a version of those girls who closed themselves off from all except those closest to them and those girls who had such low self-esteem that they sought out multiple sex partners in order to fill that hole in their heart that only loving yourself can fill. I wanted to give those girls the representation they deserve.

In Bound, Madison goes through some amazing highs and incredible lows that will break down her walls and rock everything she thought she knew about herself and the world around her. My goal for each character in the Caelian cycle it to become a better version of themselves by the end of the story. 

Stay Awesome!

The Caelian Cycle Books Are On Sale

Hello beautiful people!

Shameless promotional post coming now, but a part of being a self-published author is that I've got to do this once in a while in order to bring more attention to my books. Stay tuned this week for another inspiration board post, this time we will explore how I came up with Kian's character.


Have any of you seen this graphic floating around the internet:

There isn't much to add to this graphic except the short description below for those who haven't had a chance to read the blurbs for Lost and Bound. << Click to visit their web pages for more information and bonus material.

The Caelian Cycle is a YA SciFi based in an alternative reality about a girl who comes into her Talent (powers) and inadvertently catches the attention of organizations who want her on their side. Sadie is a strong female character who comes into her own over the series. There is a romantic story-line, but the main focus is on the characters and the world they live in. Lost is available at all retailers in both eBook and print. Bound is currently only available in eBook form for pre-order. 

Before I leave, I want to express my love for my readers. I greatly appreciate all of you who have read Lost and who have messaged me with your love. I especially adore those who have taken the time to go on Amazon, Goodreads, and other websites to leave a review. Leaving reviews and spreading the word through your social media accounts are ways you can help your favorite authors sell more books. You rock!

Stay Awesome!
