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!

Meet the Author : Michael J Walters

We are so thrilled that Michael has joined us again. He has been with us for everything we have done so far, both Faery Footprints and Under the Mists. His writing is definitely worth the read.

Michael Walters currently lives in northern New York where he teaches robotics and physics at a local university. He publishes a haiku a day on his blog to keep his creative side active while doing all that heavy science. He has plans to release his first novel, Fallen From Mercy in October 2019, if his cats let him.
