CHANGES IN AUTHOR, INDIA R. ADAMS, BOOK RELEASE SCHEDULES!

In 2016, I became a published author, releasing 2 novellas (Blue Waters and Black Waters from the Tainted Water series), 2 novels (My Wolf and Me—a “supposed to be” standalone, and Steal Me, a Haunted Roads novel), and two epic sized novels (RainA Stranger in the Woods novel, and Serenity, the first novel in the Forever series) in the time frame of 6 months.

How is this possible? So many books in such a short amount of time? I had been writing for approximately 8 years, prior. Including the next books to be released.

In 2017, India’s Productions was scheduled to release Red Waters (The 3rd novella in the Tainted Water series), Scar Me (the second novel in the Haunted Roads series), River (the second novel in A Stranger in the Woods series) and Destiny (the second novel in the Forever series).

So far we have released Destiny and River is predicted to be released late December. But, do to some outside professional interest in the Forever series, the order of next releases (Red Waters and Scar Me) have changed. For my Forever series lovers, this is good news. Not only is 2018 going to be the year of releasing novels from the Forever series but 2 more novels have been added!
 
THE NEW ORDER FOR THE FOREVER SERIES!
Serenity
Destiny

Mercy
Hope
Liberty
Trinity

 
And, thanks to persistent and wonderfully opinionated readers, there is a novella in the works: the beginning stories of the Crew. (Yes, more Sky!) I will soon give you guys more information.
 
Now, for the readers waiting for more of the much beloved series’, Haunted Roads and Tainted Water, I have good and bad news. Red Waters and Scar Me will be a year behind schedule. For that I can only offer my sincerest apologies. I miss Link, Whit, Maverick, Tucker, Lilah and V something awful! And they want you to read more of their journeys! But the wheels of fate are spinning… But, that doesn’t mean I haven’t hidden some surprises!
 
What surprises, you ask?
 
In Serenity, if you pay attention, you will read a mention of Link’s name. Is it possible he and Whit will eventually make an appearance in the Forever series?
AND, if you pay attention to a certain chapter in
 Destiny you will receive two clues of what’s to come in Scar MeOne is a “I paid attention to little details India wrote is Steal Me and saw that coming…” but the other one is somewhat huge! That’s all I can say about that. Yes, I just had a Forrest Gump moment.

I hope this news and announcements bring smiles to all faces!
Much love for ya!
India

HEAVEN AND HELL

Some believe Hell to be somewhere deep in the ground, a fiery pit where the guilty shall burn for eternity… Some believe hell to be on earth, crime against one another causing havoc and chaos at such a rate it is almost impossible to keep tract. Watching the news, at times, makes it hard not to agree. Then there are some who believe hell to be dark energy, a collective group of concentrated energy taking one form or another. The character Destiny speaks of this in book two of The Forever Series.
Some believe heaven to be a special place in the sky where God resides, inviting all who are worthy. A place where angels fight for the love of God or cry for the humans who war with each other. A place that is all forgiving and where the brightest light resides…
I think I believe in both. Different realms—levels of consciousness—Heaven and Hell on earth. When I see a beautiful flower glow in the sunlight, or a child smiling for no reason at all, I see heaven. When I watch the news and see ruthless bombings and shootings, I see the darkness—concentrated energy, forming evil in merciless forms, I see hell. But, when I see the ones still on earth, not giving up, standing strong for the victims who had no choice and were injured or killed, I see hope. And that my friends, is beauty all of its own. It is concentrated energy of the opposite kind, taking form of what I believe to be love. Love for life, love for the fallen and love for what could be—what may be. What will be if we continue to have faith that not all humans are cold and without the ability to show courage and understanding of one another.
I’ve heard of large prayer groups or meditation gatherings, whether it be on line or in a physical sense, make a difference in the area of their concentration. Crime drops dramatically, yet people still doubt the power of hope. I’m nor judging, please understand, I too loose faith in the simple everyday ways of life. When I or my husband catches my moment of weakness, we laugh and refocus—not punish ourselves for faltering. We are human after all.
I applaud the church in South Carolina that never lost faith and kept their courage alive and thriving, setting the bar high for us all to follow. I applaud Paris for being shaky on their feet but not giving up. I applaud the American couple who still went on their planned vacation in Paris so that the extremist wouldn’t win. I applaud California for, even though they’re scared, still venturing out and living. I applaud the parents and surviving family and friends after a school shooting when it feels like the darkness won by stealing your loved one, but you continue to search for answers and you continue to live another day. I applaud every one reading this blog because they/you want to know you’re not alone, or are searching for an awakening of sorts. It can be simple or grand but when our eyes open we can sense—feel, the hope—the love. And, I applaud myself for trying to live everyday with my heart open and my spirit always willing to learn and grow.
I wish many blessings and much growth to you all,
India
