Ember Everstar and The Change of Genre

In the ever-evolving journey of an author's career, there comes a time when a shift so unexpected occurs, it leaves the audience both intrigued and slightly confused. I, for one, have taken a leap that might just redefine the term "genre-hopping." Yes, dear readers, the person who brought you tales that were decidedly not for the faint of heart is venturing into the world of children's literature. Why, you ask? Well, it seems my own offspring are eager not only to dive into my literary world but to parade it in front of their unsuspecting friends and teachers. Who am I to deny them the joy of saying, "My mom wrote this!"? Plus, let's not overlook the allure of free marketing.

In this bold new undertaking, I've donned the guise of Ember Everstar, a name that promises adventure and magic, steering clear from the sultry shadows of Ember East. This isn't merely a change of name; it's a transformation of literary essence, designed to keep my worlds from colliding in the most awkward way imaginable. Trust me, explaining the birds and the bees through prose is not a conversation you want to be having with your kids.

Now, before panic ensues, let me stifle your fears: The First Witch Series remains very much alive and kicking. It's just that the creative brain demands variety, and mine screamed for a hiatus from the complexities of Vale and her entanglements. Enter "Whisper of Shadows," the first installment of what I've tentatively dubbed the Shadows of Nemorosa trilogy—or perhaps it'll morph into a quadrilogy or quintet; the future is as fluid as my publishing schedule.

So, what does this mean for you, my dedicated readers of adult literature? Fear not. The steamy escapades you've grown to adore will continue under the watchful eye of Ember East. However, I invite you to embrace Ember Everstar's foray into the fantastical, where the only steam will be from the dragons' nostrils and the hottest scenes involve a sage's duel. It's an opportunity to share a piece of me with the younger generation, sans the awkward questions. This is the book nine-year-old me would have loved to write, so I’m healing a little bit of my heart here.

In the meantime, as I toggle between the sensual and the supernatural, I encourage you to prepare your children, nieces, nephews, and perhaps even the child within, for a journey into the Shadows of Nemorosa. Who knows? It might just be the bedtime story you never knew you needed, offering a respite from the real world with a touch of magic, mystery, and moral lessons—minus the mature content.

So, here's to new beginnings, unexpected journeys, and the endless possibilities that come from a little creative reinvention. Ember Everstar is ready to enchant a new generation, and I hope you'll join me on this whimsical adventure. After all, who says you can't have the best of both worlds?

xoxo, Ember
