Author: Meltem Y.K
Release Date: April 14th 2013
With special permission from the Ascended Masters, Jayna and Ethan have a spectacular wedding in the Astral plane. Jayna’s family and close friends are also transported to the wedding and they experience the Astral plane for the first time. Life goes on in a happy monotone for the next few years. Jayna and Ethan are together every night, but they are still forbidden to see each other on the Earth plane. One morning, Jayna and Liam do not wake up from their state of suspended animation. Their family is frightened out of their wits and hold vigil by their beds. With a lot of help from Hope and guidance from the other side, the siblings finally awake. Something major has happened on the Astral plane and Jayna is not telling them the whole story, but there is no denying the sense of danger. Their almost perfect lives are about to unravel.
When and why did you decide to be a writer?
My mother taught me to read at the age of three. As soon as I discovered the delights of reading a story I started dreaming up my own stories. Writing them down took a bit longer, but it was a natural progression. I always knew that I was a story teller and a writer.
What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?
Somebody once said that they “were not keen on it”. It hurt my feelings, but I deduced that they were not keen on the genre. I write paranormal stories, so if that is not something the person enjoys it does not matter how good the story is, it just isn’t for them.
The best compliment? I recently published a short story which is a complement to my series, The Astral Ordinance. I had many people write and tell me that they wanted more, it wasn’t enough for them. That put a smile on my face.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Yes, I have several. First, and this is the best advice I got as a writer. David Morrell, the creator of the character of Rambo and the author of many best sellers says, write the story that only you can write. Second, make writing a habit; even if it’s only a few sentences write every day. Third, find yourself a great editor. You need the fresh set of eyes to catch the little things that you have missed, give you an honest opinion and make suggestions on how to improve your story.
How many drafts did you have to write for The Astral Ordinance Book 2? Any scenes that were cut from the original that you want to share?
The character of Quentin was supposed to be my antagonist, the person that was evil incarnate. However, Quentin fought me tooth and nail to be a good guy and won. He showed me how he was going to be good and that there was another person who was the real evil one. He was right. I am glad I listened to him.
What inspired the idea for 'The Astral Ordinance (Book1 & Book 2)?
These characters are so real for me, it is hard to explain. They exist in another dimension and I love walking through the veil and joining them in their universe. I am always amazed how they come to life, interact with each other and I am there to watch them and record their story.
What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write in 'The Astral Ordinance Book 2 and why?
I have many favorite parts, but if I had to choose one I would say the scene in which Quentin is captured by the Astral Warriors stands out as one of the most memorable.
What is your favorite snack/treat or drink while writing?
I normally don’t snack while I am writing, but sometimes I might have a cup of Turkish coffee to clear my head. It doesn’t hurt to have the coffee spirits help me out with my writing. I am always grateful.
What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading Amanda Hocking’s last installment of the Watersong series, Elegy.
Who is your fictional character crush?
Roarke from J.D. Robb’s In Death series. I just love him. He is a former career criminal who was abused by his father – ruthlessly beaten up and left for dead. Roarke grew up in the streets of Dublin. He is the owner and CEO of Roarke Industries and the richest man in the world.

Cassie screamed with pain. “How does it feel to be on the receiving end of pain, Dr. Jewel?”
“How do you know my name,” the Shadow woman asked squirming on the floor. “I know a lot of things about you, and none of it is good. Did you feel real powerful when you had helpless people kidnapped?”
There was shock on Cassie’s grey face. “Yeah, I know all about it. You had three innocent people killed to get your dirty hands on that gold. You are scum Cassandra Jewel.” Jayna grabbed Cassie from the floor and threw her against the wall. Cassie cowered.
“Were you planning to go to their funeral,” Jayna asked, “and pretend you were their friend? Maybe shed a few tears?” Jayna threw a powerful punch into Cassie’s solar plexus. Cassie doubled over with pain, coughing. “Stop it,” Cassie whispered hoarsely.
“Why should I? Tell me one good reason I should not kill you?” Cassie coughed, still trying to catch her breath. Jayna, that’s enough. Ethan warned her. We are not here to kill anyone. That’s what the bitch deserves. Jayna turned around and saw a new stack of gold plates on the dining room table. “I see, you brought more gold from the Underworld,” she said to Cassie. She walked up to the table and scooped up the plates in her arms. They were about ten pounds. Awesome! We’ll make a few more miracles with these. Cassie screamed with rage again. “Put those back. You can’t have them. They are mine.” “Not on your life,” Jayna said and walked through the wall. Ethan and Colin followed her; they didn’t want to lose sight of Jayna for a second, in case the demon came back.
