Thoughts from Ascension by Hannah Rials
“I was 12 when I started Ascension, ” Hannah shared. “I woke up from a dream to write about a community of vampires. It was around the time when the whole Twilight series was hot and binge-reading the series was a “thing.” I read the whole series in a week and I think that is where the idea of vampires got in my head and I started reading other similar books like Vampire Academy by Michelle Mead. This inspiration feeds my desire to create Cheyenne Lane’s journey.”
Hannah went on to share that, as she matured and evolved, so did the story. The book’s title has also evolved and changed over the years, and she shared that the process of picking the final title of a book is very painstaking.
“My publisher, our editor, and I thought about it and talked about it a lot and wrote down tons of words and ideas. We liked the idea of one word for the title, and when my publisher, Valarie Budayr, came up with the term Ascension, I knew that was what the title of my book should be. The title plays into the book, especially at the beginning, and it’s a title that seems to resonate with readers as well.”
