My current WIP (work in progress) is a trilogy called Divine Darkness, with the first novel being Saphrielle’s Fall.
I’ve been working on this project on and off for a few years, and originally thought it would release in 2017. However, taking it from a 15k story (meaning a trilogy of 45k) to a full novel was too daunting for me at that point in time. Not the writing, exactly, but I hit a wall with other projects and things going on in my personal life.
I shelved the trilogy and started working on other projects. I stopped touching this blog for an entire year. I tried to focus on building a brand, as at that time I was mainly floundering and had no clue how to translated my desire to write into a sustainable career.
I knew that I wanted to finish this trilogy, but 1) I simply had no idea when I would have the time to give it the devoted writing sessions it needed and 2) I wanted the funds to promote the release properly.
This isn’t just another paranormal romance release to me. This is something different. This trilogy will be launching a universe, and I want to give it its best shot.
So what is Saphrielle’s Fall?
This is a dark romance starring a fallen angel and the god of the Underworld, Hades. I’ve parted him from Persephone and re-written their story, but many of the other greek legends will come into play, and many of them will be familiar to readers who have knowledge of more popular myths.
The trilogy will set the groundwork for the Underworld universe. Many of the characters of Divine Darkness will find parings. These will be matches of demons, gods, angels, and humans.
If everything goes well, it could also spin-off into another universe, but that’s only speculation at the moment and a lot has to go right for it to become more than an idea on a post-it.
