BKoD FAQs

Q: How many books do you plan for the Brightest Kind of Darkness series?

A: There will be FIVE books in the series (excluding the novella ETHAN).

Q: I’ve been seeing the title ETHAN, what book is that and where does it fall in the series?

A: ETHAN is the title of the BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS PREQUEL. This is a novella written in ETHAN’s point of view and is about Ethan’s life leading up to the day Nara tells him about the bomb in the school. This book can be read before or after BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS. If you haven’t read the series yet, I recommend you read ETHAN after BKoD. You’ll get more out of reading Ethan’s POV this way.

Q: When is the next book in the Brightest Kind of Darkness series coming out?

A: Summer 2016.

Q: What is the reading order of the BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS Series?

A: See below.

1) BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS
2) ETHAN (a BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS PREQUEL). Even though this is a prequel to the series, I recommend reading ETHAN at least after BKoD, then LUCID. I think you’ll get more out of learning about ETHAN’s background this way.
3) LUCID
4) DESTINY
5) DESIRE
6) AWAKEN – FINAL BOOK – Summer 2016

Q: What is Ethan?

A. Ah, ah, you have to read the books to find out. 🙂

Q: How do you pronounce Nara’s name?

A: It’s pronounced like Laura. Do you remember the character Inara from the T.V. series Firefly? Like that. 🙂

Q: What is the reading age of the BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS Series?

A: My goal with the BKoD series was to write a series with themes that could be enjoyed by both (upper) teens and adults. Because this series follows the lives of coming-of-age/upper teens, I stay true to teens’ lives as they mature. The age appropriateness of the BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS books is as follows:

1) BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS (14 to adult)
2) ETHAN (a BRIGHTEST KIND OF DARKNESS PREQUEL). Even though this is a prequel to the series, I recommend reading ETHAN at least after BKoD, then LUCID. I think you’ll get more out of learning about ETHAN’s background this way. (14 to adult)
3) LUCID (14 to adult)
4) DESTINY (16 to adult)
5) DESIRE (16 to adult)
6) AWAKEN – August 2016 – Title and release date to be announced. This is the FINAL BOOK in the BKoD series. (16 to adult)
