Over the last couple of days, I’ve been very excited about a new modern fantasy story idea I’ve come up with!! So excited, in fact, that I am strongly considering setting aside my current series, The Sword of Dragons, to work on it. I wouldn’t stop trying to find an agent for book 1, but my work on book 3 would slow down drastically.
I don’t yet have a title for this new project, but I’ve been developing it rapidly, coming up with quick character bios (to be fleshed out more as I go along) and fleshing out the story in some detail already. Unless something comes up, I plan to spend a good deal of time Sunday working on it.
I would like to ask those who read my blog for their opinion: should I post the premise of the story on my blog for all to read? Or should I keep that kind of detail under wraps and simply tease readers with tidbits of information as I go along?
In a way I think it would be kind of neat to post about developing the new characters, the plot, etc, but I don’t want to give so much away that no one wants to buy the novel when it hits shelves.
Thoughts and opinions appreciated :)
But to give everyone a teaser, here’s a line of dialogue I thought up tonight that I would like to try to work into the story at some point. I haven’t named the characters yet, so I’m afraid they’re designated by just “C1” “C2” etc. C1 is the protagonist, by the way :)
C1: “You say this is real life? I’m standing next to an elf, I can cast magic, and there’s a freaking gargoyle terrorizing the city. This isn’t real life, it’s a messed up dream!”
C2: “So, what, you’re just gonna shove your head in the sand and hope the scary monsters go away?”
C3: “No, not sand. Its shoved up somewhere else, though.”
C2: “You’re not helping.”
