Writing Process

This book was quite difficult to write.  I had never written the final book in a series, and I felt a lot of pressure to wrap up all the plotlines and make the story dramatic enough.

It took a long time to finally realize how I wanted to write this book.  Because the other books in the series were single points-of-view, my options were to have a single first-person narrator (Daniel seemed like the most likely candidate, since he narrated the first book), a third-person narration, or multiple first person narrations.

My first attempt at this book was made in November 2015.  The title was Fighters and was told from Misty’s point-of-view.  I had thought then that the Wolf Point series would be six books long.  Misty would narrate book 4, Tucker would narrate book 5 (possible title: Traitors), and Remy would narrate the final book.  When I thoroughly failed at writing Fighters, I thought about making the series five books long, with book 5 narrated by Kayla (I could keep the title as Fighters) and the final book narrated by Daniel, making the series a mirror of itself.

I eventually settled on the third option.  I had Daniel, Kayla, and Zeke rotate their POV chapters, with each continuing their journeys of self-discovery.  I also decided to include chapters from the other members of the Wolf Point pack.  Each of these chapters had to encapsulate a bit of that character’s story arc in a complete sort of way.

I wrote the bulk of this book during Camp Nanowrimo in April 2018.  During this month, I attended a writer’s workshop on handling a large cast of characters, which was very helpful.  Because I had such a solid sense of what each character was trying to accomplish and the novel’s structure, this novel required probably the least amount of editing of any of the Wolf Point novels.

Cover Design

I created the Warriors cover in Canva, along with a redesign of all the other Wolf Point covers.
