The Revelation Series: A New Adult Paranormal Romance Series by Randi Cooley Wilson
If you stop to think about your life’s story, as a whole, you’ll discover composed of many chapters, or stages. Each phase filled with mystery, romance, relationships, battles, outcomes – both good and bad, innocent moments that take your breath away and if you’re lucky, instances that will define you.
When I look over my own life’s story, I always stop on my college years as a favorite chapter. One packed with it’s own set of angst, new and old friendships, heartbreak and insanely fun moments.
The transition into adulthood comes with different life challenges than high school. You focus harder on your future, become more independent, try new things and hopefully have an amazing social life, all while trying to balance and embrace becoming an adult.
As a writer, it’s those new adult experiences that fascinate me the most. These are the years when you truly are just starting out in life. You’re in a transitional period between adolescence and adulthood, one where you tend to experience love and friendships on a completely different level.
Eighteen to twenty-four is an amazing time where anything and everything seem possible. The world is completely open to you. You create your own journey, make your own destiny and figure out what’s worth fighting for.
New adult books explore those levels of emotions, relationships, and journeys. The stories written in this genre can be darker in themes, edgy and raw when dealing with a more mature and emotional side of relationships. It’s those reasons why I chose to write Restraint and all books really within The Revelation Series, as a new adult paranormal romance.
In my opinion, having my protagonist, Eve Collins as an eighteen-year-old college freshman, allows me to delve into deeper levels of her emotions, reactions and opinions. I’m able to write her at a different stage of maturity that I could not have, had I made this series young adult.
At its core this series is a love story, the kind of love that’s your first real love. Not infatuation, or innocent attraction, but soul moving love. Yet, this is also an age where ‘real life’ becomes a struggle. Loyalties, obligations, duties, family expectations and sacrifices are normal everyday happenstances. Self-discovery that comes only with independence and mature thought processes usually rears its head around this time. Wants vs. needs become apparent during this age. The mundane details of everyday life and responsibilities must also be juggled in this age category. All of these hurdles are what Eve and her protector, Asher St. Michael face as new adults throughout this series.
I hope you will take a chance on both Revelation and Restraint (The Revelation Series) and join Eve on her journey of self-discovery, love and sacrifice. Thanks so much for allowing me to chat about why I chose the new adult genre for this series. Always, Randi.
