Have you published anything?
Only what you can read on this blog! I hope to publish my novel… and then more novels later. We’ll see what happens!
How far into your novel are you?
About halfway through the first in a series. 250 Pages or 60,000 words. 🙂
Can you tell us anything about your novel?
Noooo. I wish. But I don’t want to risk the viability of it being published. If I manage to get a publisher and they allow me to talk about it, you guys will be the first to know! I will load you with info.
Okay, fine. I can tell you that it is a Teen/Young Adult Sci-Fi with very human elements. What I mean by that is that I want to maintain the feeling of a young adult teen novel, like you’re reading about real teens, but they happen to be in this science fiction situation. The story contains some romance, some tragedy and quite a bit of swearing so far. Sorrynotsorry. I try to keep the characters real and their problems real, but still make them endearing. Music plays a big part in the series, not necessarily in the plot, but it’s important to the overall feel of the series. The story is told from 2 different perspectives that alternate between chapters.
Odd Chapters: Mary, from first person perspective.
Even Chapters: Jacob (usually), from third person perspective.
I fear that the book may be harshly criticized for being for teens and containing very serious things (death?), terribly inappropriate things (sexuality, gender equality, important topics?), and maybe even graphic things (violence?). But I know you can handle it. Plus, any publicity is good publicity, amirite?
Can I request a Fan Fic or an original story?
You sure can! Just send me a request by clicking “AMA or Request a Fic!” at the top of my Tumblr page. I can’t guarantee that I will write it, but I can try! (I should note that you would maintain no rights to the story. But I would aim to give you credit for the request.)
You have Spanish versions of your stories. If I message you in spanish will you reply?
Unfortunately, no. I don’t know spanish, I simply have a translator for my stories. Though I would love to hear from you, so if you can get your message translated before sending it, that would be wonderful.
Where can I find the Spanish text versions of your stories?
In the “List of All Stories” page, to the right of any title you will see the word “Spanish” you can just click that. You can also find the spanish version linked within the english version post.
Why do you have 2 stories with a main character named “Chris?”
The “Christov” in “Christov and Emmy Escape the Apocalypse” is me. Emmy told me to write a story about her and I… and the apocalypse. So I figured, “why not?”
“Christopher Jerithan Grove” in “The Grove Aphelion” is named Christopher for a reason, I almost didn’t name him that because it is weird to have a character with my name, and it is next-level-weird to have two. But the reason outweighs the weirdness, so I’m going with it. I’ll let you try to figure out the reason.
Why did you name your story “The Grove Aphelion?”
That’s up to you to figure out.
What fandoms are you a part of?
Doctor Who, Nerdfighteria, Supernatural, Sherlock, Marvel, Harry Potter, that is all I can think of right now. :O
