As you know, this character has his own series – THE SECRET LIFE OF TRYSTAN SCOTT. It begins when he’s in high school and tells the story of a guy that has everything going against him.
This series was concluded in August 2013 with REVEALED. That was supposed to be the ending. Then people asked for more Trystan, so the timeline jumped three years and Trystan is in his early 20′s and is best friends with Jonathan (STRIPPED) and Bryan Ferro (PROPOSITION). Trystan also buts heads with Sean Ferro quite a bit in THE ARRANGEMENT.
But that wasn’t enough Trysan for you guys, so I announced the plans for BROKEN PROMISES.
Why did it take me two years to finish this book? Two reasons.
1. I thought you guys would get your Trystan fix in the Ferro books. I was wrong, which is nice, but it was also a surprise.
2. I wrote REVEALED, Trystan’s final book, when my uncle lost his fight with cancer. I’d written the first chapter, got the call that he had passed, and that book sat for weeks before I could finish it. And when I did, it was painful. I channeled that agony into Trystan, and managed to end his story in a way I was happy with. It was a Trystan ending, something specific to that character, as if he were real.
Two years passed and I tried to finish this follow up novel, and I didn’t realize it would open old wounds. Trystan Scott is tied to my Uncle’s life and death no matter which way I come at it. That’s good because it pours emotion into the book, but difficult because it’s pressing on scars that don’t really heal.
By the way, I’m not a public eye kind of person. I HATE talking about myself, but I’ve seen people saying I ‘forgot about Trystan.’ I wanted to let you know that I haven’t. Trystan is a struggle for me because he’s real. He’s forever tied to someone that I loved and I feel his loss every day.
I’ll probably delete this post because it’s way to personal. But I wanted to tell you guys what’s up. So there ya go.
Without further ah-do…
