a few words on resurgence (which releases tomorrow)

I just finished reading the final book in my series for the last time before it's release this weekend. I sat in my parents sunroom for hours - the same room I've hidden away in to read ever since I was a little kid - and finished the book for the final time before I officially give it to the world.

Every time I've written a book and published it, it's felt very special, each in its own way, but this one is a bit different: it completes the series, and with that comes a certain gravity. A good feeling in my middle, not one of finality, but one of at last reaching the starting point. Both ends of the circle have met. The adventure has begun.

The Blood Race series and this book specifically mean more to me than I could ever endeavour to describe. They are light. They are healing. They are hope. They are the words I couldn't find. What I feel on the edge of the wind, or when I paddle out into the ocean, or when I stare up at the mountains. This series, for me, is a journey.

I hope this series can give you a perhaps unforeseen journey of your own. One drenched in meaning and joy and hope. I hope it can be for you whatever you need it to be.

Friday I released a video in which I read my favorite parts from all three books and say a few words at the end. Making this video was an emotional process; I'm glad I did it because it really encapsulates all of my hopes for not only Resurgence, but for The Blood Race series as a whole.

All that remains now is for me to say thank you. Thank you so much for being here, for reading, for supporting me in so many ways. For your comments and messages. Thank you to those who have been on my ARC teams, and to my patrons supporting me through my Patreon page. I could NOT do what I'm doing that without you, and I hope you know deep, deep down how much I mean that.

Thank you for making this book a reality.
Thank you for helping to make my dreams come true.

The book goes live here at midnight tonight. I hope you grab a copy. <3

stay stoked and keep dreaming big!
