About the Book

Episode 7: Bound by Fate

Auren’s best friend was captured during the Galvadi invasion, and her rescue attempt goes awry. Now Auren finds herself in the hands of an enemy who knows her true identity…one who has the power to be either her destroyer or her salvation.

Episode 8: Broken

Auren doesn’t succumb to Makari’s torture, so he decides his father was right about her being the delohi-saqu. Now he resorts to more sadistic methods to extract information, which could doom the Coalition if Auren fails to resist.

Episode 9: Turning Tides

Now that Makari knows the truth about Auren, he has sworn to protect her and help her escape. But when the other guides become suspicious, Makari’s loyalty is tested, and he is forced to do something he swore he’d never do again.

Episode 10: Separate Paths

Auren finally meets Shai, Kado’s daughter, but she is too weak from her months of torture to escape the reconciliation center. Makari takes over Shai’s cleansing sessions, but that means Auren will face daily torture again. To make things worse, Makari disappears and Auren is given a task that means taking the life of someone she loves.

Episode 11: Escape Part 1

Auren and Shai begin their escape, but it doesn’t go as planned, and they are forced to adjust their plans. They are pushed to their limits, and Auren has to put her untried abilities to use or risk being recaptured.

Episode 12: Escape Part 2

Makari has decided to stay with the Galvadi for Auren’s protection. Auren and Shai are on their own, and nature seems to be against them. After being seriously injured, Auren falls ill and it starts to look like they will never reach their meeting spot with Kado on the southern shore.

Shadow Stalker: Separate Paths (Episode 10) Release Party

Episode 8 300 dpiEpisode 10 is here! Yay! 😀

As I mentioned before, I’m going to be doing things a little differently now. Instead of doing the tours and blitz’s like I used to, I’ll be hosting release parties on my Facebook Page and Twitter (and I’ll be throwing things up on Google+ as well, just not as often). I will be running them for about two weeks following the release, so if you’re following me and you have elected to receive my newsfeeds, you should be getting them.

This time around I’ll be sharing an interview I did with a reader below (and I might do this often so if you love my stuff and want to be interviewed, contact me), little excerpts from Episode 10 each day, a words scavenger hunt, and some other fun stuff.

And now for my interview with Debra Mauldin. Debra has been following my Shadow Stalker Serial from the very beginning.

Hi Debra, thanks for taking the time to do this!

It is my pleasure, Renee

As I said, you’ve been following the Shadow Stalker Serial from the very beginning. How did you hear about it?

I was working with a group called ‘Dragon Knight Chronicles’ and we did a book tour on Shadow Stalker: The Hidden Truth (Episode 1).

What were your first thoughts when you started reading Episode 1: The Hidden truth? Was it what you expected?

My first thoughts were, “here is a science fiction fantasy that I will thoroughly enjoy’. So far it has been everything I expected, plus more.

Has there been anything about the serial that has caught you off guard or surprised you?

The graphic torture scenes, in what I believe was Episode 8, caught me completely off guard. Until then, the violence had been hinted at, but now it was fully voiced through Auren, no less.

What do you like most and/or lease about Shadow Stalker?

I love the entire story and cannot think of anything I like less.

Is there anything you would change if you could?

I wouldn’t change a thing. I love your writing.

What would you say to anyone who hasn’t read the serial yet?

Pick up a copy of Shadow Stalker: The Hidden Truth (Episode 1) and read it. I bet you will want to read more.

Are you looking forward to the Savior of the Serpent Isles novels being released starting next year?

I can hardly wait.

Finally, is there anything you’d like to ask me?

Is it easier, or harder, to write in episodes than chapters?

Wow, that’s hard to answer. It’s not really easier or harder. It’s different and writing the serial is definitely a different skill set to writing a novel. I think writing a serial is a lot like writing a short story in a way. You need to be focused on the main plot and there isn’t much in the way of subplots. You also have to be able to leave off with a cliff hanger that will make people want to come back a month later, but not so much of one you’ll make them go bald. And you don’t want to leave them hanging too long, so you need to work with a regular release schedule so they know when the next one is coming. It’s a balancing act that I’m really still learning.
I think writing novels is less hectic and more relaxed, at least for me. I don’t feel as much pressure to get it done because until I set a release date, there is no expectation for the work to be done by a certain time. 
Anyway, thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions, Debra, and for all the support you’ve given me over the last year. You have no idea how much I appreciate it!

You are more than welcome. I truly love to read your writings!

You can catch Debra on her blog, Mama Bear Musings. And don’t forget, you can get Episode 10 Free just by sharing my pre-order post on your social networks (only until the 4th)!
