Lost Legends, an upcoming Indie novel Behind the Scenes

So we got to interview Cait Marie about her upcoming book release. She gave us a behind the scenes to share with you, our readers.

Time to talk about what goes on behind the writing and how The Lost Legends came to be. Some of the most frequent questions I get are…


“Where do all the story ideas come from?”
The idea for The Lost Legends came from a dream, as cliche as that sounds. I’ve always had really random dreams that I thought would make good movies or books. Well, I had a dream that I was a princess sailing with pirates to look for a group of fae called the Nihryst. In the dream, it was actually the Night Court from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. To make it my own, I completely removed the fae element, which was the only similarity to that series. Most of the original idea is still there though.


The biggest difference is that it was originally just about Ada looking for the Nihryst in the one book. Then, I added Shane’s POV for myself to know what happened in the kingdom while Ada was gone. Shane’s story not only helped develop the first book but helped create a bigger story arc for what’s now going to be a trilogy. In fact, as of right now, Shane will have more chapters in book two than Ada.

“How long did it take you to write The Lost Legends? What were those writing habits like?”
It took me a little over three months to write the first draft, but there wasn’t a lot of consistent writing. There were weeks that I didn’t touch it. I wrote 30,000 words the first week… I go through writing binges; I will write 10,000 words in a couple days, then nothing for a while. That’s actually something I need to work on.

“Where did the inspiration come from?”


A mashup of a bunch of things. I love Disney, I love the story of Robin Hood, and I love Pirates of the Caribbean. To write, I created a Pinterest board and playlist. I made a few aesthetic boards as well, which I’ll share below.

The Lost Legends is now available on Amazon!

Book Announcement : The Lost Legends by Cait Marie


✨Blurb✨
A plague. A prophecy. A centuries-long curse.
All her life, Princess Adalina heard tales of the legendary, immortal warriors known as the Nihryst. Cursed and bound to a deck of tarot cards by her ancestors, the Nihryst were stranded on a remote island nearly a century and a half earlier.

Her brother, Prince Shane, is destined to rule the kingdom of Detmarya. Though preparing for this role has encompassed his entire life, control of the kingdom may come sooner than expected due to their father’s sporadic behavior.

Discovering the king’s plan to set a war in motion with a mass assassination, Ada unwittingly joins a crew of pirates in search of the only beings powerful enough to stop him: the Nihryst. Meanwhile, Shane and a group of underground rebels make a haunting discovery of a plague infecting the streets of Detmarya.

With a looming deadline to save multiple kingdoms and thousands of innocent lives, both royal siblings join quests worthy of Ada’s beloved fairy tales.
