As I mentioned in my introductory post, I write novels. I’ve written three complete novels. Two were writing during Nanowrimo.
“Trapped” (Yes I realize I come up with cheesy titles) was the first novel I completed and “Al Kajoojah” is the 2nd Nanowrimo novel that I was able to finish.
The third novel is the one that I am most proud of, I spent nearly 1 year and a half working on it
That novel is temporarily titled “Moonlight”
(The title will defiantly change)
I’ve started writing Moonlight on the 1st of April 2011 and was able to finish the first draft on the 20th of October 2012.
Moonlight is a Regency Romance novel, which is a genre that falls under the Historical romance genre. It is set 1818 England
Hint hint: I switched a cliché that is often used in historical romance books, or even romance in general
And that it is inspired by one of my favorite classical novels, I took the idea and switched it up a bit (it’s not Jane Austen I can assure you =p)
That’s all I’m saying for now
I know it must be strange, for me to write in that era and in that timeline but the thing is, I love Regency Era. It is the time of the London Season, courtship, love, scandals and of course, the time of Jane Austen. Jane Austen is my favorite author and reading her books made me fall in love with Regency England
Not to mention, my favorite author (who is alive) is Julia Quinn and I positively adore her to death! She inspired me to start writing
I believe I might faint if I met her one day
But anyway I’m getting a bit sidetracked
Moonlight is a novel I’m very passionate about and I’m hoping that it would be my debut novel
I’m currently editing it at the moment and my aim is to get it done and start querying literary agents
I’ll be updating you guys on the progress soon
Until next time
