The Warrior Prophet (The Watcher Saga #3) by Lisa Voisin

Release Date: April 13, 2016

Publisher:  Inkspell Publishing

Mia Crawford is a prophet.

She can see angels. She also sees demons. Everywhere.

The angels are preparing for war to get her fallen angel boyfriend, Michael, back. A war that could take years.

Haunted by visions of Michael’s soul being tortured, Mia can’t rest until she knows he’s safe.

To save him, she must make an impossible journey through Hell with the one person she prayed she’d never see again.

 

Guest Post with Lisa Voisin:

What is your process for writing a book? Do you have any rituals? Do you prefer to write in the morning, afternoon or night? How do you come up with your stories?

My Process for Writing a Book

When I wrote my first book, The Watcher, I didn’t know what it would take. I’d learned about outlining in university, and wrote some good essays that way. I’d been a technical writer for fifteen years, so I knew about structured writing, about repurposing content and using content management systems. I’d blogged for years, composed manuals, online help, quick-start guides and numerous courses for online or in-person delivery.

But the only notion I had about finishing a work of fiction was the idea of writing it from start to finish. (Imagine a video clip of an author sitting in front of a typewriter here). Somehow, the idea of outlining a work of fiction made it too much like my day job. I had to do something different, change things up.

Since I wrote about facts, policies, procedures or computer programs all day, the art of invoking the creative part of my brain required throwing myself into the story and writing it from start to finish. At the time, I didn’t know any other way, and I’d never heard the term “pantsing it.”

Writing The Watcher was like a ritual at first. I had the good fortune of a bit of time off between contracts, so I could dedicate myself to the story and live in it, night and day. I would go to bed at night and literally dream up ways to plague my characters. I could stay up late at night with a glass of wine, and then sleep in. I could go for walks with my characters and let them speak to me, and then spend hours in a café and write what they said.

I was living. The. Dream.

This would, of course, be my ideal process if I could live off of royalties alone. According to a few sources (https://www.thestar.com/entertainment/books/2014/11/08/can_you_afford_to_be_a_writer.html and http://www.descant.ca/blog/2014/02/03/canadian-fiction-writers-average-income-reality-cheque-please/) the average Canadian author earns between $500 – and 10,000.00 per year on Royalties, etc.

So, I still need to work to supplement my income.

Once I started working full time, my writing process changed. I would write on evenings and weekends, especially weekends. I like working in a café, so I usually spend my weekends going from one to another, sometimes with friends who also want to write, and often alone.

On days that I don’t have my hands on the keyboard, I usually do some form of pre-writing, such as jotting character ideas or planning where to take the story next. Sometimes, I just take the evenings off, knowing that I’ll be working on my story on the weekends. I’ve seen numbers of articles telling writers they must write every day. I do write every day, for my day job. I know the mechanics of writing, and sometimes I simply cannot dedicate another hour in front of the screen.

I wrote the rest of the series this way, so my advice to any writer is don’t listen to all the rules on when and how to write. Find your own process. Writing has to be enjoyable, and you need to have a life. Find what works for you. I did.

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:

The Watcher

Millennia ago, he fell from heaven for her.

Can he face her without falling again?

Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings—soft and silent like snow—and somebody trying to steal them.

When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but not from any textbook.

In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?

Ancient history is only the beginning.

The Angel Killer

Now that she’s found him again, all Mia Crawford wants is some downtime with her fallen angel boyfriend, Michael. But the call of duty keeps him away—from school and from her—with more demons to smite than ever.

When Michael is mortally wounded by a cursed sword, Mia must perform an ancient blood ritual to save him. But the spell exacts a price. Haunted by visions of war, torture, and despair, Mia discovers the world is in more danger than she ever imagined. Behind the scenes, an evil adversary pulls all the strings.

After redemption, there’s Hell to pay.
