Introducing . . . The Books

Oya, everybody! How has your week been?

-silence-

-crickets-

-more silence-

Never mind.

So I thought, this being a writing blog and all, I should explain . . . you know . . . what I write. I currently have two WIPs (Works In Progress), both fantasy.

The first, I’ve actually been working on for two and a half years. The current title (might change, might not, really don’t know at this point) is Embers Burning. It’s the first in a trilogy. The plot is pretty much your basic Hero’s Journey type thing; protagonist finds out they are the quote-unquote ‘Chosen One’, they have some sort of superpower, and have to save the world from a big scary bad guy trying to take over said world. Also, romance.

However, I like to think that this particular story is a bit different. (Fervently hoping is probably a better description.) For one thing, there are two protagonists that take turns telling the story. For another, everybody has superpowers. (Except the certain people who don’t, but that’s a spoiler I think) And the big scary bad guy isn’t what it seems like.

Y’know it sounds even worse now.

Here’s some reference pictures of some of the characters:

I’m currently on chapter 14, but I’m also rewriting the first five chapters because I wrote that almost three years ago and things have changed. It . . . it is going to be a very long book.

The OTHER one is currently my favorite. It doesn’t have a title yet, because I haven’t thought of anything clever. So right now I’m just calling it Lucas and Laynie, after the main characters. This book was last year’s NaNoWriMo project, and I actually managed to write the entire thing in one month. Was it stressful? Absolutely. Did I ever get to sleep before midnight? Nope. But was it fun? Yes, yes it was.

The plot of this one is a bit trickier to explain. To start off, it’s a fairytale retelling mashup, cause I love those. So Lucas, the main character and my favorite of anything I’ve ever written, is Rapunzel’s little brother. He wants to rescue her and get her out of the tower, but the only way to do that is to find a prince to do it. So he goes to find one, and one thing leads to another until he’s caught up in an extremely convoluted quest involving golden apples, sleeping princesses, giants, wolves, a suspiciously intelligent cow, a redheaded fairy godmother, and a crazy plot to usurp the throne of every kingdom on the map. There’s also a bunch of fun stuff like the relationships between protagonists and side characters, which made me a very happy thwap to write.

This is actually the thing that inspired the whole story:

And here are a few reference pictures:

This book is going to be ILLUSTRATED, by the extremely talented Emily Lyn (check her out on Instagram, @emilylyn1000) so that’s going to be epic. I’m currently about to start editing, and my goal is to have this book published sometime in the summer or maybe fall. (Before I do that I have to actually figure out how to publish)

So, uh, yeah, those are my books. I love them, even though sometimes I want to burn everything and cry. Hopefully you guys like them too, and will buy them and stuff once they’re published.

See you next week!

P.S. Some people have been telling me they can’t subscribe without having a WordPress account. I think that if you go to the Home page and scroll all the way down to the bottom, there should be a normal just-email subscription box. I tested it and it works. So, yeah, you could try that.

P.P.S. All the pictures are from Pinterest (https://www.pinterest.com/theeverhartauthor/ if you want to look at my references) and I have no idea who they are from, but they aren’t mine.
