Anyway, I have been busy with many things, but regarding writing, I have been focusing on Mercy's Fall (it has changed even more since I last blogged about it...can you believe it? It is completely different than the first draft I ever had, and if you read the first draft and what I have now, you will think it was written by a completely different person.) It is crazy to think that I've been working on this novel for the better part of two years now, and I have yet to get more than ten chapters down. The struggle of writing is real. Overall, I like where it is going now, and I think I have a clearer vision as to where this whole project is going. Hopefully, it will be in stores in, I don't know, two years? Man, I wish. Who knows, you might be reading this now, and come a year or two, you'll be holding my book! The dream.
I have also started two other projects. Both are romances (woot woot!). The first is called Love Thy Enemy, and it is about--get this--it is about vampires. Hell yes. "Oh no, another Twilight!" you say? WRONG! Unlike the bland and pretty-much-useless Bella Swan, Ava Martin is one hell of a bad ass samurai chick! So to sum it up in a few words: this vampire, Peter, becomes blood bonded (which is the vampire equivalence to love at first sight...or bite...heh....okay that was really bad; I'm so sorry) to a human girl, Ava, who happens to be a vampire huntress. The story follows that whole mess. It may not necessarily have a very good plot or romance or dialogue or writing in general, but I started it for my amusement and to humor myself to see where this craziness ends up. It is also very enjoyable writing a strong minded female protagonist that takes no shit from any vampire, even if they are good-looking. Feminism, bitches!
Here is the first 2 chapters of Love Thy Enemy. Check it out!
My next story is one I started about two days ago, and I have high hopes for where it is heading. It is called When Love Conquered All. My inspiration for this story was a song called "What If You" by Josh Radin. Here is the song:
Isn't it so good!
Basically, the story is about these two lovers, Romeo and Juliet (yes, it is a twist on the Shakespeare classic, except it is very, very different in many aspects except the love part and the names). Romeo is a guard who guards a castle, and Juliet is a princess; they fall in love, but Romeo leaves her for some unknown reason. I am planning on having epic battles and lust and all great things every romance should have. Right now, it is pretty bare boned, and I only have the first chapter written.
