Q & A: Amy Braun and Damnation’s Door– SPOILERS BELOW.




Q: Did you know how the story/series was going to end before you started writing?

A: Yes and no. Yes, I knew what our intrepid heroes would be searching for in order to close the Hell Gate, and yes I knew that Dro’s character would take a darker turn. But I didn’t have all the circumstances planned out. One thing that works for me as a writer is to write a random scene. It doesn’t matter if I use it or not– sometimes it helps to just throw your characters into a random situation and see how they handle themselves. Ideas tend to form from there for me, and while some ideas made it into the final draft of Damnation’s Door, some didn’t. Such is the process of writing.

Q: What was the biggest challenge writing Damnation’s Door?

A: To be honest, I didn’t think it was very challenging at all. I had some moments where I had to double-check my goals and make sure that the new side of Dro, that the explanation of the keys were clear, and that every plot hole was closed, but for the most part the story simply flowed.

Q: Of the characters, who do you think will be the most affected by the events in Damnation’s Door?

A: Obviously each character will be affected by what happens, but I think the person with the most impacting experience will be Dro. She goes through more changes than ever before in this novel, and not all of them are positive. She embraces the darker side of her heritage in Damnation’s Door, the stress of its implications finally weighing down on her. She doesn’t know how much longer she can keep fighting Lucifer and his minions, and will come to a crossroads that could damage her relationship with Constance.

Q: Which book of the trilogy is your favorite and why?

A: It’s hard to choose! I love Demon’s Daughter because it was fun to experiment with all the new characters and create events that drew them together. I love Dark Divinity because those relationships continue to grow, and new elements were added to help complicate the plot. But I think if I had to pick, I would say Damnation’s Door is my favorite of the three. Everything is on the line for Constance and her friends, and she faces trials like never before. It was definitely a journey to finish this story, and I hope that shows with the characters and how they finally face their literal and metaphorical demons.

Q: Now that the Cursed series is over, what are you going to be focusing on next?

A: I’ll be focusing on my other trilogy, Dark Sky. The second novel is scheduled for August 2016, and there will be two prequel novellas and a short story coming out in October, November, and December of that year. I’m also working on the first novel of a new urban fantasy/modern Greek mythology series called the Areios Brothers, which should be released sometime in spring 2017.

Q: Any final thoughts on the Cursed series? Will you miss it?

A: I will absolutely miss it. Cursed and its characters have been with me for years, and I wish that I could tell more stories with them. Though to know that I have a completed series out in the world for readers is incredibly fulfilling. I guess the final thoughts I have would be to thank all my supporters and anyone who dedicated themselves to giving the series a chance. I’m incredibly grateful that urban fantasy lovers have enjoyed it and that I was able to learn so much from the experience. Originally, I had hoped that this would be the novel I would see on the shelves of my local bookstore. A naïve hope perhaps, but one that I’m sure every aspiring/new author has. That being said, I’m kind of glad that Cursed never reached that point. It gave me the chance to learn about my chosen career and to understand how dedicated you need to be to get there. Besides, I have my own bookshelf at home filled with the stories I’ve written. To know that soon I’ll be able to hold all three Cursed novels in my hands and see them on that shelf… Well, that’s halfway to the dream.
