I have been working on a series of novels based upon the ‘Forgotten Realms’ setting during the bhaalspawn events. The story had been written for the complete series and the first drafts of novel one and two were finished. I grew to be fascinated by the ‘Time of Troubles’, when the pantheon gods of the Forgotten Realms were made mortal and force to fight for survival. But, I had no freedom to work with a story related to that interesting event. So, I decided to stop work on that project and used that material for my own series that takes place in a setting of my own creation. So, here go: The series is titled Áed, and the story is told in three books: Asylyn, the Wyvern Witch and Zorya Nain. The story is about a young woman of unknown origins named Asylyn who has lived as basically a ward to the state. The world has been shaped by an event where the pantheon gods were made mortal by a mysterious new god and most of them were destroyed. The remainder went into hiding. As the war between the gods flare up again, Asylyn discovers that that she too is a god. Only, in this new war, both sides want her dead. Development Stage: Despite the massive amount of material I will be able to recycle, I have to build the world and its mythology. While a lot of the characters and individual story lines can be carried over, the ‘Crisis’ itself cannot be determined until the world, mythology and its history is in place. Therefore, while that takes place: Short Story Time! Lead Me to the Grave (Horror, WC 2500)- Teenagers, grave digging and romance(kind of)! Development: 5th draft with the first sample reading completed. Die a Hero(Sci-Fi, WC 1500)-Mongols, Hungary in April and Aliens! Development: 4th draft, first sample reading completed. Godspeed!
