The Last King

I have only a few words to share right now, and they are as follows: I finished my book, The Last King. Finally!

Well, I finally finished the first draft. It took me a whole year to do. It’s a mess of a book, but now I can start chiseling away at the pieces.

Long Live the king.

Long Live the king.

What a journey it has been. To think, I started off telling a story with a black vampire in the lead and now? A whole new different breed of immortal characters has been created.

I plan on completing a second and third draft by December.

I suppose I will have to start working on my one sentence pitch for the book.

How about this….

Love. Your. Enemy.

Or maybe this…

True love can be a real killer.

Naw, because there’s so much more to the story than just one little grab line.

We’ll see. I am celebrating by relaxing. Tomorrow begins a new wave of edits.

Ciao for now,

I cannot wait for the second book for The Last King series. I have loved fantasies like this since I was a child. The Last King is the most delightful book I’ve ever read.

    Hi, Zelda,

    Wow. That’s really kind of you and sweet. Now I have to make sure I don’t disappoint you!
