March 31st - 21st Birthday *Shock*

2018

For me, this is the year of change. I've been thinking recently, my 21st birthday is coming up, the 31st of March to be exact. and I feel this is the year I'm going to make a few changes, starting with a haircut..... I haven't cut it for years, haha. I am also going to start eating a little healthier, look into things I want to study so I can move onto something other than checkout, get my full drivers license, and finish up a lot of my projects, as well as start this series which I have been planning for years. Technically, EmberSpring was the start of this series. It was what brought abo1t my world, Kaynika, and it, along with my friends here, was what inspired me to write this series and expand my universe. Heres to the good changes is life :D Cheers to all who I support and who support me and everyone else :) You're all awesome and I am excited and nervous for the surprises this year and the next will bring.

Second Place! :D

Amazing news, my short story 'The Hunter Within', got second place in Reaper's contest :D I would like to thank him for hosting the contest. It challenged me and it was great to have entered.

Kaynika: The Realm of Dragons

Okay, so to those who have read the prologue and wished to continue, the first chapter is now published. To those who haven't read the prologue, this is one of the most planning I have ever done for a story, mostly because this story will contain several different events that happened in my world. It's pretty much a history book on my fantasy world. The prologue is slightly unrelated to what follows. It's really more of an intro to the world and isn't as important. What follows, however, is merely one story of many, all of which I will place in this one novel.

I'm quite excited to see what people think of this, so thank you to whoever checks it out, and I would also like to thank Pink Sky for the wonderful cover! :D Unfortunately, she isn't on Booksie anymore, but she's a wonderful, kind person, and it was a pleasure to have met her.

To Come?

But first, here is something that may or may not be coming anytime soon. I mentioned this in my last news post, so I'm mentioning it again so it doesn't disappear into thin air. This is my species novel that I am still planning on doing. I'm thinking possibly after my contest is over and my Kaynika novel is completely published here. So no real guarantee when this novel will be up.

Actually Coming

This novel is one I am certainly starting after my Kaynika novel and contest is over. This is my Pirate (with a touch of romance) novel. I'm taking an interesting approach with this one, so hopefully, it turns out alright.

Another Novel

Yes, another novel :D I'm spreading out all my projects because yes, I do have a lot I'm working through. For this novel, I'm not posting on Booksie, but I will show some of my friends here of course, for feedback and stuff. I will start this novel when I start my pirate one, so I have one I'm posting here and one I'm not.

Well, I think that's all. I had to retype all of this back up since my laptop is very laggy and made me click on something I didn't want to. But yeah, off I go to get participants in my new contest :D

Profile Information

The Infamous Kamela Forest is a place known for many things. Its trees get larger, taller every time you turn to gaze at them. They tower above, their leaves acting like a shield, preventing the harsh sun from going any further. Within that wall of trees, is a place clouded with mystery, its secrets never fully discovered, let alone, understood. Everyone has heard the rumours about what truly goes on inside. The stories are haunting, used as a means to scare children into behaving. It is said that people who venture into the forest never return. Fear is evident in those who believe, but those who do not, ignored the signs of great danger, only wishing for proof. The truth of the matter is, nothing is as it seems, not in this world, or any other. Through the foliage, there are many wonders just waiting to be found. Beyond what the human eye can see, lies a portal to another realm where anything is possible. Very few can open this portal, but a crack between the two worlds has appeared. It continues to get wider, resulting in people accidentally passing through it.

A pair of eyes looked up at the tall trees that were getting closer with each step. The humanoid figure didn’t know what awaited them, but a strong curiosity was building up within their soul. They passed through the first set of trees. Their sight became redundant in the sudden darkness that overtook their senses. All they could hear was the rustling of leaves and the crunching of brunches beneath their feet. They heard whispers echo within their mind. They stumbled in the shadows. “Through this Portal you will find, a place that Gravity cannot bind…” The strange words played over and over again as they picked themselves up and continued forwards. Soon enough, their surroundings lightened up and they could see once more. They gently placed a hand on a tree that stood by their side and stared out in amazement.

Their eyes gaze up to the stars in wonder. The night sky was dimly lit by the little white specks that sparkled above them. They weren’t just staring at the stars however. Within the dark, something fast flew across the sky. It was quick and dwarfed them like they were no more than a pebble buried under dirt. The colossal creature had mighty wings that kicked up dust as it flapped them. Its crimson scales were like armour. Its large jaw was filled with razor teeth and its long barbed tail flicked from side to side. Its dark brown eyes were trained on the ground below.

Their eyes drifted away from the beast in the sky, only to land on a building. It’s purple walls gleamed in the moon’s light. The construction was the definition of magnificent. The entrance doors were massive pieces of amethyst stone, moulded in such a way that it only enhanced its beauty. The double doors were wide open, practically inviting them in. With each step they took, the larger the building got. The towers that surrounded the castle were so tall they reached the clouds. The windows were classically arched and tinted a lighter purple.

The castle drew them in, so they made the journey through the long grass and wonderful array of flowers until they reached the doorstep. They stepped inside and looked around at the interior. Elegant paintings of dragons and angels hung from the walls and a spiral staircase leading up was located to the side. Near the top was a female. The 20 year old looked almost human, but had a few stunning features that proved to be more of a fantasy image. They realised in that moment, they were far from home as they stared at the winged girl. Her feathery wings were mostly black, but had red on the tips. She gripped the handrail beside her. Her amethyst eyes were focused on the new comer. “Welcome to the realm between dimensions, my home,” she greeted them with a wave of her arms. “It is nice to meet another writer in a place such as this.” She gave a kind and welcoming smile. “I am the Dragon Mistress of this world, but you may call me Shada,” she introduced herself with a small nod of her head.

Shada brushed her long black hair off her shoulders. The purple streak kept swaying in front of her eyes every time she glanced down the stairs. She turned around, going up the last few steps. “Come, this way,” she beckoned with a motion of her hand. She walked down the hall and into a large room that held many doors. “This is the room of realms,” she began to explain, gesturing to the wide variety of doors. “Each one leads to a different dimension.” She glanced over her shoulder at her guest.

“Feel free to have a look around, and whenever you want to leave,” she points to the closest door that had the word ‘Earth’ on it. “Just go through that door and that will take you home…” She looked at the other doors in turn. “Or, you could go to other dimensions and have some fun there.” She waves her hand at one. “We have a world where cats rule, a world where fantasy is reality, and much more.” She gave her guest a nod before heading to a door that had many different words scribbled on it. “Or you could head through this door, which will take you too others who have visited this realm before you.” She opened the door to reveal a swirly portal of colours. “I have become good friends with these people, who are all writers like you.” She stepped through the door, leaving her guest standing there to have a look around. The door closed behind her, where her guest got a view of the image on it. Upon closer inspection, there was also writing carved just below the picture.

Every one of these writers are fantastic people, and I am so lucky to have them as my friends. So now, a round of applause and a big "Thank You" must be handed out to these wonderfully talented writers.

"ThankYou!"
