News of the Week (6/23/13) + Fire and Stone – An Introduction

23 Jun


As some of you may know, I’m attending a Publishing Institute in Denver this upcoming month. To say i’m excited for this new adventure would be a massive understatement. During my time there, I will learn the ins and outs of the publishing world and meet with people from every walk of the printed word.

In honor of this, from July to Mid-August my blog will focus on publishing terminology, news, and information, all the while acting as a bit of a diary for my experiences. I promise it’ll be worth your time to stick with it, as I plan on engaging in quite a few shenanigans in the Mile-High City.

Before that happens, I have a treat for you all:

During my last year of undergrad I wrote a novel for my Senior Project. I’m still in the revising stages, but for the most part it’s complete. This project is called Fire and Stone, and for the next three posts before Denver i’ll give you a little insight.

So what is Fire and Stone?

It’s a story set in a world barely pushing into the Iron Age. The setting takes place in a world called “The Two Cities,” in which two vastly different societies live surrounded by miles of forest and mist. Magic is present, and while I have set rules, the people themselves don’t quite understand it yet. Mystical creatures of my design populate this world but the real crux of the story are the characters.

I could go on, but i’ll save that for the next post. After all, what’s the fun in giving all the answers right away?

Until next time. Have a good day y’all.
