Hello my lovely friends and fellow bookworms!
I’ve been missing in action a ton because I’ve started to fully focus on writing. Aside from that, I’ve been reading a ton and forgetting to write reviews (there is a long list I need to tackle really soon).
As of just now, I just finished rewriting the second draft of my first WIP that I actually completed, Lunar Eclipse! Now I’ve changed the title to Descend the Night!
I’ll probably have a week to write my reviews and read more and try to post more on my blog before I return to research to prepare for the next CampNaNo happening in July!
Usually I get my story ideas from my dreams (thanks to my anxiety), but Descend the night was the exception. I’ve never dreamed about this story and it has changed so much from the 1st draft, Lunar Eclipse that they are literally separate entities.
Lunar Eclipse lacked a lot of things, but most importantly, a solid story and my culture, but in Descend the Night, I added both in.
Here is the official synopsis for now and the tagline!
Tagline: When night falls, they come to play.
Synopsis: Roscelia is the adopted daughter and sole heir to the House of Winter, despite being a Jiangshi, her parents want her to marry her childhood friend and vampire, Luca. But when artefacts go missing and murders start to threaten their streets, Roscelia has to team up with her guardian Kitsune, Shiki, Zeke, a Weretiger and her Coven to find the cause. This leads them to discovering a sinister plan to call upon a god for one wish.
And here is a short excerpt from my writing the past few weeks!
“Would it be so bad, Rose?” He swallowed loudly, “To be married to me for the rest of your life?”
“We’re talking about an eternity here, Luca. Not like how humans trade their vows with expiration dates.”
“Can’t you do it, not for your parents, but for me?” Luca curled a finger under my chin, using one of his arms to support his body as he stared down at me.
“If I have to do anything, I’ll do it for myself, Luca. You know me better than that.”
“But behind your facade of acting tough, you’ll do anything for your friends too, Rose.”
I grabbed his wrist, scraping my long nails against his tender skin, “Then things must be worth my effort. You can make anyone do anything with the proper motivation.”
“Then tell me what I have to do to motivate you properly, Rose?” Luca lowered his mouth close to mine, his soft lips brushing against my lower lip.
“A girl doesn’t ask for much, Luca. Just to be loved as she deserves.”
He smiled as his fang tugged against my lip, “Haven’t I loved you enough, Rose?”
“Not nearly enough.”
I’ll be back here soon and I can’t wait to reconnect with everyone! Also, leave a comment down below if you would like to be a beta reader! (I have no idea how to do this!)
