In high school, I wrote a screenplay for fun. It was just snippets within fanfic shared only between me and my best friend. I liked my little vampire screenplay and toyed with the idea of turning it into a separate, publishable novel. It’s been a decade and a half in the making, but I finally got it done. In truth, the book has been finished for at least six months, but I kept revisiting the ending to tweak it.
Like The Moreau Witches, this book begins with a dead body — well, several. Throughout the book, readers must better understand what vampires are, how they differ from each other, and whether there is even such a thing as a good one.
Hopefully, my beta readers enjoy reading The Curse of Kalaga as much as I enjoyed writing it. They have until June 30th to tell me whether they hate it and why. My editor gave me mostly good feedback on her beta-read last year, so let’s hope I have only improved the novel since then!
While they work on catching my plot bunnies by their fluffy tails, I will be working on designing the book cover and finding a good typesetter. I’ll also be helping Shadow work on his first book. By the time you read this, I will also have started my month-long trip from Southern California to Northern Wyoming.
