Kaitlyn’s adventure has ended. But mine is just beginning! I would love to visit each of the places in The Akasha Series (see my post here to read more about them), and I am going to start at the end. Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado is the location of the final battle in ‘Earth’. I was fortunate to go there this weekend with my sister. Fair warning – this post contains crap loads of pictures; hope it loads okay for you!
Good news, everyone! I am done writing the fourth and final book of The Akasha Series, ‘Earth’! Bad news, everyone. ‘Earth’ still has a few months of editing to go. But I’m super excited to be done with the series, and I must say – very proud. I have a few ideas for what is next which includes an audio version of the books – and maybe even a screenplay of the first book (ooh, I just gave myself the shivers). I also want to get to work on a new mermaid series (also eco, of course).
Another one of my dreams would be to visit many of the places throughout The Akasha Series – and I’ve already booked my first trip **squee**! I’m starting at the end, where the final battle of ‘Earth’ takes place. Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado:
Not too super exciting since I was born in Colorado, but I’ve never been to Red Rocks and I’m still excited to go.
Some of the more exotic destinations of The Akasha Series include:
Reunion Island, just off the coast of Madagascar – where Micah has built a dream home for Kaitlyn. But will they ever settle down there? 🙂
Read about it in ‘Air’, but you’ll have to finish the series to find out.
Easter Island – A Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, known for environmental over-exploitation and said to be one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world. Definitely need to go during the Tapati Rapa Nui Festival!
So anyway – now you know my inner most desires. Where do you guys want to go? Leave a comment below! If you are like me, strapped for cash – hopefully a trip around the world within The Akasha Series can appease your appetite for adventure. Other than that, Google and YouTube have worked wonders to give me a taste of what these places are really like. You can also visit my Pinterest page, ‘Inspirations of the Akasha Series‘, where I pin the settings from certain scenes in the books. Happy traveling!
Readers – I need your help! I am currently writing the finale to ‘Earth’, the fourth and final book of the Akasha Series. There is, of course, a final battle between One Less (Shawn’s organization) and The Seven (or Team Kaitlyn, whichever you prefer to call it).
Needless to say, the elements involved have to awesome. I am playing mix and match with some of the elements and have come up with a few ideas – but I need more. Rack your brains for some super cool storms. To you get you started, here is what I’ve done:
Combine Air and Fire for:
Combine Earth and Air for:
Just your typical sandstorm – but when you add a dash of frozen water, imagine the destruction with flying mud balls. Hard to dodge when all you see is sand. That may be a stretch, but we are just throwing around ideas here. If it helps, the final battle location will be in the USA – Colorado to be exact. I am leaning toward the Red Rocks Amphitheatre where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. What better place for a final showdown for ‘Earth’? Red Rocks is a geological phenomenon – the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world. Come to think of it, I might have to use something to do with sound in the final battle.
Just comment below with your ideas – or feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
