Goodreads asked Brett A. Lawrence:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Brett A. Lawrence My current work is actually a sequel for my first published novel. My editor had suggested I reduce the Shadow Guardians manuscript from approx. 112K words down to 80k or <, either by weeding out or finding a chop off point. Before I knew better, I sort of despaired over that, but she said not to fret, just make it into a sequel. Since SG was already set up for that I said it would now look like a trilogy. So the last 30k was excised and a new ending tacked onto SG. I am currently weaving that excess into the second story and am now about 64k into the first draft with a long, long way to go yet.
