Sana - Last Day from Prologue to Book

I've been looking at the cover for Sana - Last Day for months now. The illustrations were finished last year, and it has some of my favorites. I even shared some of them on my IG. It'll be my 10th book, although it was written after Anyia - Dream of a Warrior, my first published book.

In Anyia - Dream of a Warrior, Anyia finds out that she must help those who will defeat Empress Zarina. For me, the next book that needed to be released was a book that would introduce some of those characters. Sana - Last Day was the prologue to that book (a book that I hope to release this year). But for a prologue, it was over 14,000 words and too long. For a long time, I didn't know what to do with it. At first, I cut 1000s of words, hoping that it would fit better by compacting the story, but that didn't work. I was going to scrap it all together until I wrote Anyia - It Begins.

While I was working on the 2nd book, Anyia - It Begins, I kept getting stuck. For over a year, I was stuck. I would write a few chapters and then scrape them. It didn't feel right. Then I got into a flow, got the rough draft of the first chapter... and got stuck again. Then one day, Sana appeared, and the plot all came together. I was out of my writer's block. It was then, I also realized that the prologue was really about Sana's journey and all the pieces connected. I reworked the prologue and turned it into a book, a short story that is the backstory to Sana. It's an excellent anchor to the series and will connect some dots for those who want to know more about the characters and the world.

Oh... yeah! Sana - Last Day sparked the story for my first picture book, Baby Princess and the Last Doll.
