Last year, I put the first book I wrote on my blog by sections. This was called Immortal Wars: The Summoning and I wrote it in high school. It was cleaned up a bit in college when I sent it to a vanity press. One would call this science fiction and superhero instead of fantasy. Still, it didn’t sell and I’ve moved all of the characters to other locations to be repurposed for Windemere. Now . . . why am I bringing this up?
There was a sequel!
I never published this one. Since the first volume didn’t move, I tossed the entire series away, but I’d already written Light, Blood, & Tears. Never knew what I wanted to do with it, but I couldn’t throw it out. This piece of work has never been edited or revisited since I finished it back in high school/college. Common sense tells me to leave this in the dustbin, but I’m genuinely curious about it now. It really boils down to a strange and awkward fact:
I don’t remember what happens.
Seriously, I haven’t touched this book in over 20 years. If you asked me to explain the plot, I’d have to shrug. I vaguely remember events going to Earth and the Museum of Natural History in NYC appearing. Beyond that, I don’t know. This could be the most horrible thing imaginable. So, it could be hilariously fun since this is probably a much better example of my original attempts than the first volume. At least I edited that at some point after college. This one has been festering.
Come back next week for the awkward humiliation.
