Blood Talk: Enchanters!

They are my version of witches and wizards, though they simply Enchant things to benefit the other Creatures. They enchant rings for the Vampires to use in order for them to walk upon the surface, and be amongst humans, and they enchant other objects for other Creatures to use though that isn't really shown in the series, just barely touched upon.

Now, compared to the Vampires and Lycans they sound pretty dull, don't they? I thought so too while writing the first three books (as they are immensely Vampire and Elite Creature heavy), but I knew it was time (in writing the fourth book: The Phoenixes of the Nest), to showcase their true power and what they can really do.

Though it is hinted at in one of my favorite scenes in the entire series in Book 2: THE IMMORTAL'S GUIDE that MOST if not ALL of the Enchanters in the World are NOT happy about their lot in life, taking care of the Vampires essentially and this unhappiness, as it is wont to do, boils over to epic proportions later in the series.

Blood Talk: Lycans!

Now, when starting to write THE DARK WORLD: BOOK 1, I was ready to merely name the Vampires' antagonists 'Werewolves,' as, in my sixteen-year-old brain that's who the Vampires always fought in various books and movies I'd consumed before then. No?

Yet it was my mom and older sister that stopped me when I went to write about werewolves and told me, "No, they're Lycans." It made sense to me, then. We all heard of Lycanthropy right? And in this massive world I was building at the time, it made sense to call them as such: Man turn into wolf. Man not fully wolf, yet not fully man.

Eternal Con 2014

Was a lot of fun, hence my uber long string of a lack of posts, but I'm back home now and ready to attend to this blog as I must. I got an autographed picture from one of my favorite wrestlers (yes, I am still a huge wrestling fan), Mick Folkey/Cactus Jack/Dude Love/Mankind. mickfoley

It made my year, easily.

I picked up a few comics as well.

They are The Flash and The History of the DC Universe, respectively. I haven't really read either yet. I'm not sure what I'm waiting for, really.

I've gotten a huge push in the writing direction of my life, and that's where I've been spending all my time, or at least, trying to (I've been easily distracted lately, it happens). A huge push in the sense that I know where the story's headed and where I want to take it. I'm trusting in my characters to lead me to their subplots as they have done for the past two books so that I can move forward with the main plot more or less.

Off I go to write.

I hope your days were as fun-filled and inspiring as mine.

Also, I'm starting to get serious about Pinterest. I already have a board up dealing with The Dark World: Book 1 and as the weeks go by before the book is published, I will put up more boards dealing with all the groups of characters - Enchanters, Lycans, Vampires, Dragons, Mermaids...etc. leaving a little comment here and there under the pictures so everyone can get a greater glimpse into the Dark World and how these characters operate (even when I don't show it in the books). After all, there's only so much one can show in a book. ;)

Keep your bite,
