Since the last month was kind all about The Wolf Prince on the days that I actually did post something *coughs awkwardly*, I’ve decided to reveal a little bit about the new project I’m working on.
And also because I’ve kind of been teasing it around and multiple people have demanded to know more about it.
I spontaneously started this project back in June as a way to defeat writer’s block and have loved it so much I’ve kept going. And now I’m laughing at myself since I thought it was going to be a nice little short story, but it’s climbed its way past 30K and don’t even think I’m at the midpoint yet.
Let this be a cautionary lesson, my friends. 😉
SO WHAT IS IT?
Tentative title is The Dragon of Durmuth.
Christian Castellan is slowly turning into a sea dragon.
His younger brother Gavin will do anything to stop it.
Fairy Agent Renee Galligher is down to her last chance in the Bureau of Magical Affairs. The Agency Commander is back on her “true love conquers all” kick. Guess who’s up to bat?
*Full synopsis potentially coming soon to the WIP page*
Ahh! It’s been so much fun so far. It’s a bit of a deviation from my standard medieval type fantasy. I’m going modern/urbanish fantasy, still with plenty of snark and sibling moments, and am giving a romance subplot a whirl.
SPOILER that’s not really a spoiler. Renee falls in love with the younger brother. OH NO WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN? I’d actually like to know as well, so this is awkward…
JK! My sister and I had a great brainstorming session a few weeks ago and I figured out some solid plot things and am all excited for this story again!
Have a quote!
As you can see, this is very much a stormy beach/ocean type story and I should take a beach vacation for research purposes *nods*.
Also, I think I’m about to take a nosedive into modern type fantasy because three of my next projects I’ve lined up are more modern, and I just wrote a short story over the weekend that’s modern fantasy with soldiers, magic, and giant vipers in the desert and it was so much fun and I am considering making it a newsletter short (unless you’d rather see a short story from one of my published books – please let me know!!)
Thoughts on this crazy new project of mine? Favorite modern/urban fantasy? I want more books to read! 😉
