Those of you following my blog for a while will be aware of the fact I’ve been working on the first book in a planned series… a novel I hope to get published.
At its core, I think Ice Warriors is a save-the-world story. When I discussed it with a friend, we talked about how it was a story that started with failure. The main characters had tried to save the world… but it went wrong. Something happened, something that had a long-lasting effect for the next decade as seven went on their way and assumed it was all over.
I envision book one as being almost a setup… an introduction to the characters and the world. It’s set on Earth (Midgard in Norse mythology) and follows the journey of nine people with extraordinary powers.
There’s a lot more to the book than that. While it’s primarily a fantasy/mythology-based series, it does touch on a few other genres as well.
I have one last read-through to do, to make sure there are no glaring errors or inconsistencies, and then I plan to start submitting it to publishers. However, I do know how difficult it can be to find errors in your own work, so I have a question:
Would anyone like to provide me with some early feedback (constructive criticism is helpful – I want to know what does and doesn’t work)? If you provide me with a contact e-mail, I can send you a copy of the book. (I can probably convert it to PDF… otherwise, it’ll be in .rtf or .doc format).
If you’re willing to help out, that’s awesome! Otherwise, I’ll just keep updating you all through here… but if anyone does help me out, I’ll make sure you get a mention in the acknowledgements.
