DUST is the third book in the EMBER series. And it is coming out really soon! I know. That was really fast after Obsidian. I had a lot of help with this book, in inspiration from God (actually, He wrote it; I just typed). For this reason, it has been my favorite book writing experience, and I hope everyone else enjoys it too.

Here are some of the main theme songs God showed me for the book. They fit very precisely!

Love is the Strongest Flame. Man, this song is awesome. You've got to listen to it. We know that God is love. This song depicts exactly the sort of representation that magic is supposed to give in the Ember Series; it's also jut a great song with lots of passion. Listen!

Another great song about love. This will be inspiration for a particular scene. You might guess it after reading. But don't wait to listen to it. Listen now! You will be blessed.

This song is SO ____'s theme song for this book. Haha, sorry. I can't tell you who, it will give too much away, but man... it's such a great, real song straight from God's heart. Listen to it, to prep you for DUST!


What do you think? It is all glowy! I like this one.

Niftilly (yes, that's a word. means nifty). Ah-hem. Niftilly: the epilogue of the second book, is the prologue of the third book, DUST. Sort of.
Here it is:

Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

He asked me again. I felt scraping dirt in my throat.
He asked: “Who are you?”
“I don’t know!” I shouted out. I hadn’t known or thought I possessed such a strong voice. But I shouted, as my body came up tall. Strong. I was strong. I shouted strong. That was who I was. “I don’t know. I don’t know,” I kept telling him.
Till I saw a flash of fear in his eyes, at my response.
And I thought: he fears me. This is what I need. Strength. I’ll just--
But then he brought the flat-side of his weapon to the back of my head.
And all I could remember before my world went black was that I knew it was called a sword. I only didn’t know how.


Actually, that's just a PART to the prologue, but I don't want to give away too much.

Here is the playlist on youtube: DUST PLAYLIST

It is REALLY long (125 songs), but these are literally all the songs I listened to to inspire me for DUST. God was really generous, I guess. Lol. :)

And that's about it. Dust is really good, so read it. You will love it. It will make you happy.

I hope that you have a blessed week/month/day, and if you haven't read it yet, please check out my last post on Grace and Worry.

Hurray for DUST!!! AUGUST 13TH!!!


  1. Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your books! They really spoke to me and I loved the relationships that you built between the characters (though I have to admit I just about screamed at at the end of book 2:) Anyway, I hope to see some awesome action on Eve's end of the spectrum, maybe some swordplay? Who's to say...Can't wait for Dust to be out!!!

  2. Helly Annie. Wow, you're words mean so much to me. Thank you for writing!
    I didn't know if you knew, but Dust is out. It came out the 13th, so you finished in perfect time.
    If you have the time, let me know your favorite character(s). I love asking this question!
    God bless you wherever you are at today. And again, thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed the books!!!
