It has felt like ages since I last posted anything news-related to my dA page, but today I have a big announcement. For the past few months I have been working on developing and writing my first novel called "Wolf Boy". When completed it will be a full-length novel (I'm estimating the length at completion to be around 250-300 pages at this point), complete with colored interior illustrations created by the fantastic
. It will be the first novel in the yet to be named trilogy of books related to this story.
"Wolf Boy" follows the journey of a girl named Nylca who finds solace exploring the woods around her home to escape from the tension of a fractured family. Her world is turned upside down one cold, winter day when she catches a glimpse of a mysterious creature lurking across the stream. When this strange Wolf Boy ends up saving Nylca from certain death, she quickly learns that although he has his strange quirks, he isn't quite so different from herself. However, when Nylca begins to notice strange changes taking place across her body she is forced to decide between her new friendship and preserving the chance to repair her broken family. It is only a matter of time before her parents will find out about what's been going on.
Their journey towards understanding one another will bring together two seemingly distant worlds and explore what it means to fully embrace the calling within your heart.
How much would you change for the one that you love?
In light of my focus towards this project, I felt that my previous gallery did not represent my current writing ability and so you may notice the vast majority of my work going into storage over the next few days. My gallery will now be periodically updated with "Wolf Boy" story excerpts along with other smaller short stories, and other creative projects that I have been working on in between working my writing for the book.
My journal here will give you updates to my progress with the novel as well as informing all of you of opportunities to help support my endeavors as I move closer to publishing.
It is a different kind of story from what many of you may be used to reading, but it is my sincere hope by the time you reach the novel's conclusion that the power that inherently lies in being different will resonate deeply within you.
My thanks for your ongoing support goes out to each of you.
To the Stars and Back,
