Wilder Revelation (The Guardian Series #3)
by G.K. DeRosa
Publication Date: February 21 2016
Fulfilling her destiny and becoming the Guardian has meant a world of sacrifices for Celeste Wilder, but her most difficult challenge is yet to come. The supernatural forces at play are far more powerful than she ever expected, and she will have to trust her instincts if she hopes to survive. Lilliana Constantin is back from the dead. Alek is free and somehow stronger than ever. A pack of rogue werewolves are wreaking havoc in her small town. And on top of all of this, Celeste faces what is at best an uncertain future with the love of her life.
While battling the forces of evil and saving the human world alongside Stellan and the handsome Constantin brothers has become second nature, Celeste had no idea what accepting her duty as the Guardian would actually cost her. When she faces an unspeakable tragedy, she is pushed to her breaking point. After fighting her most formidable enemies, Celeste is about to discover that sometimes the greatest evil is the one that comes from within.

1) How did you as an author know when to start wrapping the story up and bringing each character story to a close?
I’m just getting to that part now actually! I knew I wanted to write a series, but I wasn’t sure how many books I wanted in the beginning. I wanted to be able to fully explore the character arcs without drawing them out so long that my readers got bored with them. I originally thought 3 books would be enough, but after writing the second, I felt that I needed a little more time. I just started writing the 4th book now, and it is really bitter sweet to bring the story to a close. I let my characters write the story for me, and I felt that it was time to give Celeste, Roman, and the rest of the crew the happy ending they deserved.
2) Favorite or not I always want to know which actors & actresses they would like to see play the characters in their books in a movie version.
What a great question! There are some characters that I clearly envisioned as certain actors when writing the series and others that I had a really hard time with. Roman was Ian Somerhalder from day one, but Celeste was much more difficult. Here’s the final list:
Celeste Wilder – Chloe Grace Moretz
Roman Constantin – Ian Somerhalder
Nico Constantin – Theo James
Brian Kennedy – Alexander Ludwig
Natalie Meadows – Zoey Deutch
Stellan – Stellan Skarsgard
Mrs. Wilder – Jennifer Garner
Mr. Wilder – Hugh Jackman
Dante – Liam Neesen
Magnus – David Boreanaz
Fabian – Jack Nicholson
Alek – Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter)
Marco Caccia – Taylor Lautner
Maddie Wilder – Ann Hathaway
3) How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer? How did you go about getting someone to notice your book?
I was in my 30’s when I decided to write my first book, Wilder: The Guardian Series. It was just something that came to me one day. I had been reading a lot, and I just got the itch. I had always loved to read and write when I was in elementary and middle school, but over the years I kind of lost touch with my creative side. I am a self-published author and decided to give it a go on my own on Amazon. I had just moved to Poland and didn’t have many options for publishing over here so I went the indie route and couldn’t be happier. I think I was just really lucky that readers found my book. I am a huge fan of The Vampire Diaries (mostly the TV show, but I also read the series) and went to a convention and met Ian Somerhalder. He was such a sweetheart and I gave him a copy of my book and he asked me to sign it for him **swoon**. I ended up using his picture in a lot of my initial marketing and advertising and I think that helped a lot!
4) Do they have a ” lucky charm” they feel is necessary when writing?
I don’t actually! How boring is that? Lol.
5) How did they realize your love for writing?
I don’t think I ever realized it until I started doing it one day. I’ve always been a fan of fantasy/paranormal TV shows. Some of my favorites growing up were Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Angel, etc. then as I got older I started watching True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and many more. I’ve always had a vivid imagination; I just hadn’t used it proactively. Like I mentioned earlier, I had been doing a ton of reading and just decided to start writing. I didn’t have a plan or an outline or anything. I just started typing away and within a few days I was addicted!
G.K. De Rosa has been an avid reader from a very young age. In fact, before she could even read, she tried fooling everyone into thinking that she could. At the precocious age of two, while living in Italy, she had memorized an entire children’s book in Italian and expertly turned the pages at the exact right moments of the story. As she grew up, she always enjoyed literature, no doubt having been instilled with a love of story telling from her early years in Catholic school where she was greatly influenced by exemplary teachers who taught her the value of English and Literature. Though she did not pursue writing in college and instead went for the more traditional route of International Business inspired by her love for travel and all things foreign, after a move to New York City, she found her creative writing side calling once again. She began writing a restaurant review blog, City Lights and Tasty Bites, detailing her other passion – food! The hectic hustle and bustle of the city, combined with long commuting times gave her the opportunity to spend more time reading and rekindled a lost love. After reading countless books in many diverse genres over the two years in New York City, and returning to her home state of Florida, she felt compelled to write something for herself. She had always felt particularly drawn to Young Adult novels and having been an eternal romantic at heart, a fantasy romance was a natural choice. She currently lives in South Florida with her real life Prince Charming and their fur baby, Nico the German Shepherd.
