Hey there, I’m using NaNoWriMo to finish my first novel. Check it out!

painting-representation-of-three-powerful-sorcerers-illustration-id149273889

The Vangen have served the Contanis Empire faithfully for nearly three centuries. Hand picked from foreign lands, men of the Vangen hold no political ties, agendas or creeds except to the Emperors and Empresses who sit upon the Onyx Throne. They are vanguards, protectors, loyalists.

They are the Vangen Royal Guard.

As the officers of the Vangen lay siege to the lands of the Oriens, a letter is received bearing the seal of the Empress. Contained within are orders that are as simple as they are direct. Take the hill and return home. As to why, the Empress does not say, but with their loyalty bound to those who sit upon the Onyx Throne, the decree leaves nothing for debate.

What trouble then has stirred within the Capital that leaves her orders so vague? As more becomes clear with time, loyalties are questioned and a black tide turns. Will the Vangen stand to fight another day or fall forgotten to history?

Interested? Click here to check it out.

For hundreds of years, the elusive fae have been capturing young princes and princesses, trapping them in sleeping curses where they waste away, waiting for a true love’s kiss that never comes.

Roran of Ki is perfectly content to hide in his room and read for the rest of his days. But the dream of a solitary, food-filled future is squashed the day that the gods declare that he is the one person destined to save Princess Phillipa of Marden from her curse.

The kings and queens are elated at the prospect of both of their children receiving a “Happy Ever After” and blessing their kingdoms with several adorable heirs. But poor Rory has two very major problems. Firstly, it’s going to be very difficult to fall in true love with someone who’s stuck in a permanent sleep and who he hasn’t spoken to since he was six.

And secondly, he has no interest in kissing anyone.

Between the sweaty wizards, the snarky fairies, the incredible lack of snacks available in Pippa’s tower, and the impossible task before him, Rory only knows one thing: This is going to be a mess.

I’m not exactly taking active part (bad timing with my job), but I do want to finish the 3rd round of edits on my upcoming book (second in series) :slight_smile:

Title: NinRai - MissAdventures For Two

Genres: Action, adventure, fantasy (original world), comedy, parody

Blurb: “Hush, hush, little girl.” The old man rocked a small child. “Stop your tears. Here is a story, perk your ears.”

He patted the girl between her cat ears. “Let me tell you about misadventures of a boy named Kairo and his rabbit partner Arubi from beyond three towering mountains and two bubbling rivers.”

“What misadventures, Grandpa?” The girl stopped her sobbing, wiping the last tear with her clenched paw.

“A many jaw-dropping adventures with butt-proud Camtaurs, Dark Elves in spandex, a cat acrobat or a band of Rorty Thieves with a mountain of treasures hiding in a desert.”

“I love treasures!” The girl threw her arms in the air, crowing.

“Then listen closely. Let the story unfold in front of you.”

The girl’s eyes widened. Her lips spread into a wide smile, showing sharp fangs. The bruised knee stopped hurting with her grandpa’s words.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-

“This is a nice introduction to Kairo, Arubi, and their world. The scene building is fresh and evocative, and full of fun little references for the alert reader.”

“First of all, the writing is smooth and the descriptions are both picturesque and amusing. I think it captures the sense of whimsy, playfulness, and adventure appropriate for children’s literature while containing enough sophistication and wit to keep it from being a trudge for the adults.”

“So, Kairo is the boy, and Mr. Arubi, of course, is the rabbit. The names are remarkable and unique (I’m curious to know where you got them from).”

“Off the bat, I love the premise and the prologue, and your storytelling technique is unique and refreshing. After reading through the chapter, I’m amazed by the world you’ve built. It’s not typical, and it really stretches one’s imagination.”

The Sound of a Siren’s Call
When Arriana was born Deaf, it solved more problems than it caused.

Unable to hear the call of the sirens who raised her, she never saw a problem. With her father’s pirates all fluent in sign, she only ever felt the split of the underwater world of her mother and the pirating one of her father.

With the divide only growing farther apart, Arriana only ever seems to find more problems than she solves in her search for self.

Thanks for the shoutout, pal!

I am posting a chapter a day of my nano project: link


Cash is the sole proprietor of Moonshine on the Planet of al-Sufi. Distilling this specific booze requires a precise prolonged exposure to radiation. A potentially deadly occupation, but nothing a former bounty hunter can’t handle.

Cash’s self-inflicted exile on The Ridge is intruded upon by a ghost from her past, a former lover. “Boss” who now runs Sweetwater Casino, one of only two casinos in Lead Belly, wants Cash’s Moonshine for her customers. Their reunion and business arrangement are interrupted by Calvera, Sweetwater’s only competition and now abductor of Boss’s only son.

Forced to leave behind her treasured anonymity, Cash must use her wits, charm, and Boss’s money, to recruit a new crew for one last job. That or lose the one and only thing she’s ever held dear.

Oh, this is nice! Here’s mine. :blush:
Mouth Full of Lies

Blurb:
Dennis Brooks; the troubled boy with tattoos, an attitude, and a mouth full of lies . . . or so that’s what everyone around him calls him. Having had enough of everyone’s judgement and pity, a night out on campus sounds great.

But everything comes tumbling down, when he wakes up beside a dead body, covered in blood. Only the blood isn’t his, and the dead guy beside him, he doesn’t know. Now, he’s more than the troubled boy with a mouth full of lies. He’s the troubled boy no one wants to be around under investigation, except Calvin Hart and Jeremy Vasquez, who are willing to help him figure out who framed him for a price.

Main Genres: Dark Fantasy / Dreampunk / Magical Girl.

Rating: Mature.

Warnings: lgbt, sexuality, violence, self-harm (3rd chapter), emotional trauma.

Promises are meant to be kept, but a promise to save a beloved sister leads a group of magical girls into a dream of many literary landscapes. Out of this dream of Carroll’s wonderlands and Poe’s nightmares comes a monster that threatens to invade the waking world. Their promise forms the opening act of a play they can’t stop, so to stop this monster’s debut into their world, they must play their parts, but for one unlucky player, death is only the beginning. If you love fight scenes, quirky magical girls, twisty plot lines, Gothic settings, the possibility of dreams, and the uncertainty of nightmares, this story is for you.

Hey!

So, I’m a bit of a NaNo rebel in that I’m using this month to finish the last 50k of my current novel; Siren

Siren

Mute since the tragic accident, Ashlyn Holland has lived a quiet life in her childhood home, haunted daily by the shadow of her Father’s memory, but too afraid to let him go. Instead, she passes the day serving coffee and kindness, avoiding the ocean at all costs.

When Derek moves to town, however, her routine is interrupted, and the fears that have always held her back are challenged. As their relationship develops and Ashlyn finds freedom in love, disaster lingers in the back ready to strike. And when it does, it will either bring them closer together or tear them apart.

I don’t think I understand NaNoWriMo. :thinking:

I thought it was a way to inspire authors to reach a writing goal of some sort, and my novel (always needs to be edited again) is completed so my goal would be publication. But… IDK… I’m not sure I’m ready to face the rejection of the query trenches (again) just yet. I was hoping to have more wattpad interest in my book before trying to get an agent to bite so I could show them there is still an audience for old school writing. But getting reads is a process. It takes time… Is that a NaNoWriMo thing? “Get more reads on wattpad?” :rofl: :joy:

So if you have any suggestions or ideas or info on how this whole process works, I’d love feedback. Maybe tell me if my book is ready for entry? In… Whatever… :thinking:

Genre: Dark Fantasy Romance

Title/Link: Assassin’s Realm

Summary

“Yes, My Lord.”
Three words left Torrent’s mouth and echoed grey against the castle walls that imprisoned her. Since childhood, she’s been forced to hide behind servitude. But having witnessed a conspiracy threatening the survival of her king and his subjects, she can sit idle no longer. She must escape the cruelty of her captors, or allow the empire to crumble.

“Don’t scream.”
Raven is a cold hearted half-breed, a dangerous assassin that cuts silently through the dark nights of Evonheart. But from the blackness a sinister force rumbles. An army of beasts is amassing in the north and there’s no one to stand in their way.

Benevolence and brutality collide when Torrent comes face to chest with her murderer. Now she must convince Raven to spare her, rescue the king, and save the kingdom. Torrent holds proof of their uprising, and Raven holds her life in his callused hands.

:warning: Content Warning: Violence, Mental Instibility, Cruelty, A jerk face anti-hero who abuses the heroine (not the drug).

:warning: Trigger Warning: Violence against women, Death, Depression, Murder.

It’s a known fact that not all lawyers play by the rules, and when Haneul Yoo’s law firm is put in jeopardy, she’ll do whatever it takes to save it…

even if it means dealing with the insufferably charming plaintiff’s attorney, Aiden Young, in ways that aren’t exactly considered… professional.
