A Broken Kingdom

August 2020

I've begun a rewrite of A Broken Kingdom. I've realized a few things can be fixed if I take out a bunch of fluff that doesn't really need to be in there. Cutting 75,000 words is painful, but I have plans to replace all that with much more concise methods of getting my point across. 

As a result, I've taken down everything except the (now deleted) first 11 chapters of A Broken Kingdom. The beginning will be replaced with something much more exciting, and the rest of the story will follow suit. 

Hopefully I'll be published one day. In the meantime, I'll occasionally post deleted scenes and unrelated stories. Thanks to everyone who read all the way through the first time around!

I'm working on a second round of revisions, and have realized that the posted version of my novel is sorely in need of an update.  I've deleted a few chapters and combined a few more, deleting almost 25K words by this point. I'll upload the revisions to the first few chapters soon, and will try to upload more every day. 

 

February 17, 2019 The known world of Sennac:

 

 

Due to hazardous conditions on the deep seas in the past few hundred years, travel to other continents without a powerful mage on board is extremely dangerous, and there are few maps remaining of the lands across the seas (ie: the author might draw all that some other time, but for now, she's too lazy).  

 

February 4, 2019

After a two month holiday hiatus, I finally have time to write again! I'm finishing up the novel, and have one final chapter to write. Of course, this is the most difficult chapter.

I've mentioned before that Oskar is a character I play in Dungeons and Dragons, and that this novel is essentially his backstory. Due to recent events in game, and due to the fact that my DM has finally read through Part I, I realized that I got some details wrong. Chapters 12 and 13 have been revised in order to reflect this newfound knowledge, though there's nothing in there that will drastically affect a reader's understanding of the story. I'd recommend rereading them before reading the epilogue, however.

Thank you all for your interest in my mad obsession over Oskar and Marent's love story. I hope to give you the answers you crave within the month.

Thanks to the awesome program called Wonderdraft, I've managed to create a map of my world! After screwing around with the program for an hour, I came up with this very amateur effort. Expect me to update this frequently as I learn more about the program and make it look less stupid. But for now: take a look at the Dwarven provinces!

The map is actually much larger, but I'll show the rest of the world later ;)

Thanks for reading!

Profile Information

I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I always viewed being an author as the greatest thing I could ever do, and as such, always dreaded writing. How could I ever compare to the authors that continued to leave me in awe every time I turned a page?

Thanks to prompting from my dear husband, I finally decided to try. A Broken Kingdom is the result, though I've branched out on a few side projects here and there. Find me on Booksie Silk if that's your thing, or check out my shelf for books I've enjoyed.
