The Song of Kamaria Trilogy

T.A. Bruno Author Interview

On the Winds of Quasars is the thrilling sequel to In the Orbit of Sirens. What were some new ideas you wanted to introduce in this book that was different from book one?

For Quasars, I wanted to explore the world of Kamaria on a more personal level. In the Orbit of Sirens was mostly about humans and why they came to Kamaria. Although the auk’nai were involved in that story, they had plenty of room for deeper observation. In Quasars, we see more of auk’nai society, and we discover that there is more than one mindset to the native Kamarians through the lens of the auk’gnell.

What scene in the book did you have the most fun writing?

Any scene involving L’Arn and Auden became my favorite to write. Auden is such a great character to explore, and I hope readers find him equally interesting to read about. The first scene L’Arn and Auden meet still gives me chills when I read over it.

What were some challenges you set for yourself as a writer with this book?

I wanted to represent a family dynamic much like my own growing up. My brothers and parents had to adjust to a lifestyle that accommodated my brother Danny, who was born non-verbal autistic. I wanted to have this shown through the Castus family, so I included Nella Castus, who was born Deaf. To do her justice, I reached out to people in the Deaf Community, and even brought on a Deaf Consultant to help ensure she was portrayed right. Nella instantly became another one of my favorite characters to write. She’s a ball of energy who doesn’t let anything hold her back, and she will fiercely defend those she loves. She’s an excellent addition to the cast, and I hope readers fall in love with her like I have.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I haven’t announced the final book’s name yet, but I expect to release it sometime in early 2022. It is far along in production, and it’s really shaping up to be an explosive conclusion to the Song of Kamaria trilogy.
