This is it, Champions. This is the last official King Arthurs and Her Knights post. It’s been so much fun, and I am so honored and touched by how much love Britt, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table have received.
As I mentioned over a week ago, I’m going to close out the fun with a interview with Britt and Merlin! You guys blew me away with the number and depth of your questions, so I actually typed up the interview in a separate document. (Click Here for the PDF File) I hope the interview brings you both laughter, and closure!
When I started writing Endings I was really looking forward to giving Britt a strong finale and closing out her story. I thought the worst of the pain was over when I finished the last edit and put the book up for sale, but everything from reading reviews to writing out responses to the interview has been a bittersweet reminder that this is the last time I’ll be doing this for Britt Arthurs.
I want to give a big thank you to all you faithful Champions. The King Arthurs series was a bit of an experiment for me, and I grew a lot as a storyteller through writing these books. Thank you for supporting me as I wrote these tales, and for supporting Britt as she fought to establish an honorable court.
As I’ve said again and again, I write because I want to entertain and make people laugh. But with the King Arthurs books I also wanted to inspire. Britt Arthurs was a normal girl. Admittedly, her hobbies were a bit eccentric, but otherwise she was your standard American…and she went on to do great things. You might say her adventures in Camelot transformed her–and they did–but really it was her heart and thirst for honor and justice that made the Sword in the Stone recognize her as a potential king.
Because of the King Arthurs series, I have heard from many of you, and I can confidently say that so many of you are like Britt. Many of you have a passion for what is right, a gentleness in your forgiving nature, or great ferocity in your courage. It might sound kinda weird coming from a random author-chick’s rambling blog post, but I hope you see the beauty in your own heart and the great impact you have on those around you.
Thank you for reading, Champions. And thank you for joining me on this last story of High King Britt Arthurs.
