The Survival Series is over.
The last book has been out for months now and I'm still having a hard time with that fact. I didn't plan on writing that series. I planned to finish the Quarantined Series, finish the Bird of Stone series, and see where my imagination took me from there. But Joss jumped out at me and she wouldn't go away and I miss her now that she's gone.
Some of you have told me you miss her as well (and Trent and Ryan and Cren and the list goes on, the biggest compliment an author can receive!). While the end of the series made the majority of you happy, I know I left some unanswered questions. I left a bit to the imagination of the reader, but I want you guys to know I tried to write an epilogue. I agonized over it for a month! I wrote it, trashed it, rewrote it, glared at it, cursed at it, and in the end I abandoned it. It wasn't meant to be written. End of story - literally.
But there's no harm in telling you how I saw it all panning out, right? :)
Here are the answers to some really great questions I just received. If you wanted more of a resolution from the end of the series, here it is in the best form I can give it to you:
Yeah, in the epilogue Trent was in a loving relationship with a very patient woman and was about to become a father. He was, as always, very chill about it. Joss was freaking out. She was scared to hug Amber, convinced she'd crush the baby inside her.
And that's it! I hope that tied up some loose threads anyone may have had. If you guys ever have questions about the stories, ASK THEM! I love them. I will answer anything. Thanks for reading, loving, and investing in the Survival Series. I look forward to writing Trent's origins novella next year. It's Trent so you know it's gonna get weird :)
