For a large part of my time spent living - twenty-one years in all - I have wholeheartedly read many novels. My favorite genre is fantasy, somehow you just can't beat the feeling of escape and discovery as you flick through the pages. But lately, I have felt something new, something different, a feeling so deep it scars like the tendrils of a recent storm, fresh like an overwhelming scent. That feeling is a consistent numbness. It feels like every new story I read is just a repeat of the last; albeit with a fewnew names and a fancy new title.
I feel like with my experience of reading so many stories, I can write my own. Of course, I wouldn't be here if I hadn't already begun. Let me elaborate. I plan to add something new and different to the genre. Sure, there will probably be a brand new fantasy world, but I will edge away from the consistently mainstream and the constantly overused. I will bring new ideas and new philosophies. I promise.
I plan to write and self-publish eight books. Each book containing roughly 250,000 - 300,000 words. These eight books will be based around the life of a young Kefien, named Ovro. You will find Ovro is a witty young Kefien, charismatic and totally ready to become your new favorite hero. Outside of these eight books, I will write a new short story - containing roughly 10,000 - 20,000 words - every two months for as-long as I live. I understand that when you create a fantasy world for your readers, taking it away can be painful. And who would want to cause unintentional pain? Fortunately, I have a vast imagination and I'm ready to dedicate my life to this project. So, please take a chance on me and help me publish my first story.
