Hi Aishwarya! I'm so happy you're enjoying the characters!

When I first started writing the IAD series, I didn't necessarily expect it to continue on for this many books, but I tried to prepare for it just in case. I worked to layer in the seeds of future conflicts and to get the world building (the Lore) as complete as I could. After doing tons of research, I made spreadsheets of the different factions, with their weakness and strengths, their lairs, their agendas, even their preferred weapons and dress. I established the Accession, because otherwise, I thought the earth would be overrun with immortals! Once the world building was cemented, I was able to run with the plotlines and let the characters have free rein!

This is sort of a serious question and we'll get personal for a second (hi! this is christina). This isn't The Most Important piece of advice I'd give to a writer, but still a big one: never let your writing mojo become tied to something you eat or d See Christina’s answer.

“Have you ever fought an opponent you had no defense against? Like a fire breather or an acid spitter?"
"Once I faced a female with diamond skin," Nix said breathlessly. "I was transfixed - even as she was choking the life out of me."
"Really?"
"No, I saw that character on X-Men. I just wanted to commiserate. Alas, I have no weaknesses.”
Kresley Cole, Pleasure of a Dark Prince

“Can’t hear… call back… good luck…”
“Nïx, I know you’re faking the static.” She could picture her sister blowing into her fist directly at the receiver. The static abruptly stopped.
“Why?”
“It seemed less rude than the alternative.”
“What’s that?”
Click.”

“You leave me tied up like a dog? Then you had better remember that this bitch bites!”
