I asked my beta readers to help assemble this list of content warnings, and they didn’t disappoint. I don’t even remember which animal I killed, but I trust them when they say it happened.
The gist is this: my novels have a dark past. Rune’s story is one of survival from an episode of physical and sexual violence. And surviving trauma isn’t the type of thing that ever has a neat ending. It’s a lifelong effort. I wanted to be honest about that, and show Rune constantly fighting to grow past the defeats of the past. At the same time, this is an urban fantasy set in a city where even allies can be dangerous–and you see a lot of that grit in the writing.
I try to be extremely respectful of this content. I’m not afraid to admit that I felt I had too heavy a hand in THE LAST SUN, and tried to moderate the… vividness of some of these scenes.
And, as always, I try to populate my story with a lot of love, found family, humor, and the diametric opposite of toxic masculinity.
