1. Tell us a little about your story
The Second Wave is the first installment in a complete Dystopian Romance series. This series takes place in futuristic modern America. The world was devastated by the Makanza virus four years ago and is now slowly recovering. Since all of the infected survivors from the First Wave are contained in the Compounds, everyone thinks they're safe from becoming infected, including Davin, our 18-year-old hero. However, when the Makanza sirens go off while Davin and his siblings are visiting their divorced father on the Cheyenne River Reservation, Davin soon realizes that they're anything but safe as another viral outbreak plummets him and his family into a frightening and emotional journey.
2. Is this part of a series or a standalone?
This is the first of a five-book series. The Second Wave is unique in that it's a novella whereas the four books following are all full-length novels. It's also the only book told from Davin's point of view. In the next book (Compound 26), Meghan is introduced who is our fiercely determined heroine and Davin's future love interest. All four books following The Second Wave are told from Meghan's point of view.
3. What do you think are your MC's strengths?
He's incredibly resilient, loyal, and devoted to his family. The way he cares for his siblings and father is a testament to his devotion.
4. What are their weaknesses?
Davin has a hard time forgiving himself for actions he regrets, and he refuses to forgive others who have wronged him. This results in intense anger and bitterness in him that is the foundation of his story arc.
5. What is the central theme of your book?
The central theme is that one should never give up in what one believes in. Sometimes it takes many battles to win the war, and perseverance to reach that goal is crucial.
