How I Feel at the End of my Series by Aubrie Dionne

Posted on Updated on

Today I have a fabulous guest poster stopping by. Aubrie Dionne is the author of the New Dawn space opera series, and the third book, Haven 6, releases today! Please read on for a blurb and a giveaway!!

This is the first large series I’ve ever written in my life. It spans one novella and three books: about 300,000 words. Below are some of the intense emotions that I’ve had here at the end:

1. Joy – I’m so excited it’s done and I have three beautiful books to hold in my hands.

2. Disbelief- I can’t believe I did it. I finished something completely and whole heartedly.

3. Relief- Thank goodness it’s done! When I first set out, I wasn’t sure I could do something like this. The whole thing was a giant bluff. But, I kept to my word goals, met my deadlines and turned everything in on time.

4. Melancholy- I can’t believe it’s over! I love the world I’ve created so much I don’t want to leave it. I can think of more ideas, more stories to write!

5. Excitement- I want to start something new. Maybe go back to fantasy, or try my hand at contemporary romance. I’ve had enough of this space opera stuff for a while. At least.

6. Anticipation-What will the world think? Which book will be their favorite? Will they see how the storylines converge? Did I tie it in enough?

Will I write another space opera series? Maybe someday. Not this year.

Will I ever try to write something else on such a large scale again? You bet!

Did I grow as a writer from this process. Most definitely.

I suggest every writer out there try their hand at a series at least once!

Haven 6

A New Dawn Novel, Book Three

A product of an illegal pairing, Eridani is the only woman without a lifemate aboard the colonization ship, the Heritage, and she is determined her less than perfect DNA will not get in the way of finding love. As the ship nears it’s final destination of Haven 6 after five hundred years of travel, images of the surface show evidence of intelligent life on a planet that’s supposed to be uninhabited. Commander Grier assigns Eri to the exploratory team to spy on the alien society and return with information on how to defeat them.When Eri’s team lands, tribes of humans attack and Eri is saved by Striver, the descendant of a colonist and a pirate from Old Earth’s colonization efforts in other parts of the galaxy. Striver helps Eri rescue her team and they are drawn to each other despite their different allegiances. While Striver battles with trusting Eri, Eri must decide whether to warn him and his people about the commander’s intentions, or follow orders and complete her mission.
To celebrate her release, Aubrie is giving away a beautiful jungle green bead necklace from ETSY. To enter the Giveaway, just click on the necklace to the left!

Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.
Aubrie wrote in her junior high yearbook that she wanted to be “A concert flutist” when she grew up. When she made that happen, she decided one career was not enough and embarked as a fantasy, sci fi author. Two careers seems to keep her busy. For now.Aubrie Dionne is an author and flutist in New England. Her writings have appeared in Mindflights, Niteblade, Silver Blade, Emerald Tales, Hazard Cat, Moon Drenched Fables, A Fly in Amber, and Aurora Wolf. Her books are published by Entangled Publishing, Lyrical Press, and Gypsy Shadow Publishing. She recently signed her YA sci fi novel with Inkspell Publishing titled: Colonization: Paradise Reclaimed, which will release in November 2012. When she’s not writing, Aubrie teaches flute and plays in orchestras. She’s a big Star Trek TNG fan, as well as Star Wars and Serenity.

    Hi, Aubrie. Congrats on finishing your series. I hope your next project finds success! 🙂 Love that you play flute. I did…eons ago and have forgotten everything I ever learned. (I’m also working on a series and hope I’ve kept more of the knowledge in that than I’ll forget ;)) Anyway, good luck in all you do. Haven looks like an interesting read!
