Empowered: Outlaw is now out! It took longer to write than I had planned or imagined. But it was worth it.
Outlaw was a challenging book to write. Mathilda’s story takes a dramatic turn in this book, and she discovers a shocking fact that shakes her to her core, as well as disturbing evidence that the world is not what she thought it was. Mat went through an emotional wringer in this novel, which turned out to also put me through the same wringer. I listened to the soundtracks for the television series Arrow, perfect with it’s dark, moody, and at times, pulse pounding score. Disturbed’s cover of “The Sound of Silence” was the anthem of the novel.
Between writing sessions I switched to more uplifting music such as the soundtrack from the “Duet” musical episode of last season’s Flash television series, as well as the music of 10,000 Manics, Bowling for Soup, and Spoon. Music truly made a difference.
Empowered: Outlaw is the third book in The Empowered series, with one more to follow, Empowered: Rebel.
