The next big thing blog hop brings you the last book in The Seven Spell Saga, 'An Ending and a Beginning'

Hi and thank you to author Trish Marie Dawson who invited me to participate in The Next Big Thing blog hop with my WIP An Ending and a Beginning

{Tristan nodded. “The icing on the cake though is the fact that Oliver and Chloe are getting engaged, and Steven you will get into university to study music, I’m sure of it”. He smiled around at everyone and then he went to Chloe and hugged her close.
I didn’t even feel a twinge. He looked at me over her shoulder and gave me a strange look. I didn’t flinch from it, and when he let go of Chloe he came to me, thumped me on the upper arm, and said, “Congratulations Oliver, I can’t think of anyone I would rather have engaged to the girl I love”.
A silence descended after he said that, and then the front door opened, and Chloe’s mom came in, which was just as well because I don’t think anyone knew what to say after Tristan’s statement.}

What is the working title of your next book?
The Seven Spell saga book Seven, An Ending and a Beginning

In this final book of The Seven Spell saga, it’s three years since Chloe moved to England with her family. She has grown up and it shows. Her relationship with Oliver and Tristan has produced some fantastic adventures and Tristan who sometimes has shown a little jealousy at her loving both him and Oliver suddenly finds out just how hard it is to love two people.
The voices of Oliver, Tristan, and Chloe continue in this final book as they were introduced in The Sealed Door. In Book five and six, the stories were told by all three and a different element was added, a narrative voice. That continues in book seven.
Dale and her people attract more danger and magic to Tristan, Oliver, and Chloe as they all try to use their special abilities to help others. They don’t know it but the seven spell that has caused so many adventures in the last three years is far less worrisome than magic that is far older.
When Oliver and Chloe meet the owner of a photography gallery, they find a big surprise awaits them. Tristan was sure he wasn’t being influenced by magic but is he right?
What is Dale’s destiny? Will Chloe and Oliver actually get engaged?

Where did the idea come from for the book?
Basically it finishes the story of the Seven Spell, which was cast upon the hero Tristan Dearing in book one by a jealous wizard. It places the three main characters in a position to continue their immortal lives together.

What genre does your book fall under?
Urban fantasy romance YA 17-21

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I really have no idea. I think I would need to look around for new faces.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Everything can be and frequently is not what it seems.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
This book will be self-published because the whole of the saga has been.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Six months to write, two month of edits and now it’s ‘sleeping’ for a couple of weeks before a final read through.
I hope to publish the book Dec 5 and it will be available on Amazon for all Kindles, and Kindle apps.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
None. I try not to compare books not mine or other authors.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
A place inspired me. An old ruined abbey in the north of England and a castle nearby.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It’s set in rural England but the reader gets to travel to a different world through a portal. A central character Tristan Dearing has been influenced by magic all of his life. The main female character Chloe loves both Tristan and Oliver the other male hero character. They love her too.
