Passage (The Akasha Series #1)
by Indie Gantz
Genre: YA Scifi

Fantasy
Release Date: March 2018

Summary:

Uncover a Lifetime of Lies in this Fantasy Adventure!

On day one, Charlie Damuzi and her mute twin brother Tirigan are blissfully unaware of the dangerous world they live in. They may be aliens living on Earth after the extinction of humans, but to Charlie, life is pretty mundane.

On day two, the Damuzi family is ripped apart by a family secret that forces the twins to flee the only home they’ve ever known.

Determined to find a way to reunite their family, Charlie and Tirigan travel to uncharted territory in search of their salvation.

But that’s just Charlie’s side of the story.

In the future, forty days from when we first meet the Damuzi twins, Tirigan is on the move. His destination is unknown, as are the people he’s surrounded himself with, but his mission is still the same.

Keep his sister safe and reunite their family.

However, as Tirigan attempts to navigate the complex bonds he’s formed with his companions, he’s forced to confront the one thing in life he has yet to fully understand.

Himself.

Family. Deception. Power. Destruction.

It all begins on day one.

Author Interview:
  1. What is your writing process? Do you aim for a word count daily or maybe just a scene?

Typically, I like to write scene by scene. As I’m writing, I will play out the scene multiple ways in my head and then go back and edit it so it is consistent and fluid. I could never go by word count because cutting myself off like that would inhibit my creative process. However, the downside is that sometimes I’ll go days without writing, because I don’t have the scene in my head yet.

  1. What sort of research did you do for this book?

I read up on Anunnaki and Sumerian history and mythology. I also boned up on my basic science knowledge since the series discusses  geology, chemistry, physics, and biology.

  1. What are you working on now? Any chance of a sequel?

Currently, I am reading the proof for Kindred: Book II of The Akasha Series. The release date is currently set for February 1st of 2019. I am also working on the third book, as well as the first companion piece novella that serves as a character profile for one character.

  1. How did you come up for the idea of your book?

I’ve always really enjoyed both science fiction and fantasy novels, and wanted to create something that could serve as a genre crossover. The most important aspect of my series is the characters, so I spent time developing the main characters first. The story formed as a sort of subversive narrative of popular YA tropes. From there, I’ve followed the characters and the stories they have to tell.

  1. Just for fun — what TV shows or movies have you really enjoyed (or disliked?) recently?

Most recently I’ve watched the Netflix documentary series Wild Wild Country, the first season of USA’s The SInner, and binged the latest season of Orange is the New Black. The most recent movies I’ve enjoyed were Hard Candy, The Greatest Showman, and A Quiet Place.
