Side note: I do not own this cover image, I just really like it.
In my most recent post (here), I talked about why I went missing for almost exactly a year and about the fact that I want to start posting and writing my stories with a purpose. This book, tentatively named Savage right now — which some of you may remember from my CampNaNoWriMo posts last July — is the one that I’ve been wanting to share for a long while now. It’s one of my more experimental works since I hardly ever develop whole new worlds or time travel, and I don’t know if you guys noticed this or not, but I rarely do lesbian themed stories. I don’t know what it is but when I write them, I tend to think way too seriously about representing girl on girl relationships as realistically as possible, something that makes me re-write and re-write certain scenes to the point that I end up just hating them for the amount of thought and effort they require — well, love-hate really.
Anyways, in case you didn’t hear about this book already. Let me organize the information on it for you here. (Really, I want all of the info/posts I have about this book(s) to be in one place for both your and my convenience.) So here goes!
- CampNaNoWriMo intro that I did last year
- Insight into characters
The description I’ve been working with so far (like when family and friends ask me what I’m working on), but will probably change later:
Abandoned to the will of time itself, Sophia Andrews, daughter of the world’s most renowned inventor, is thrown into a world without sunlight, teetering on the verge of war. Lost and alone, she finds herself submerged in the heart of a kingdom, ensnared in a deadly battle for power without a single familiar raft to keep her afloat. Completely isolated in a land she doesn’t understand, the young girl has no choice but to blindly rely on a warrior who saves and kills at the drop of a pin.
Now for some information you guys have never seen before!
This might be a trilogy. Yup, you heard me: a trilogy. Three stories. A series of three. Three individual books about one story.
I think you get it. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just too excited. I did have like three cups of coffee in one today (a bowl-sized cup if you will).
But yeah, three books. Possibly two, depending on length, my mood, etc. At first, of course, I assumed I was writing a three part book, but then the first part (or book, whichever you prefer) was nowhere near done and I realized it could very well take more than twenty chapters of work just to get to the conclusion that I originally wanted — or in other words: a book. So I’m rather certain now that this could turn easily from being Savage the book to The Savage Series (Trilogy, maybe). The next two “parts” aren’t really as long as the first, so it could very well be only two, I’m not really sure. I just thought I’d finally let you guys know that it’s going to be more than one for sure, which I think is just incredibly exciting. And terrifying. But mostly exciting, so it’s great!
I believe that’s all I really wanted to put here today? I’m not sure. If I have more, I’ll create a part two of this post, no big deal.
Ciao for Now,
Amelie J. Hyde
P.S.: The first chapter will be available either today or tomorrow, though I am leaning more towards today, so keep your eyes peeled!
