Happy Discoverer’s Day. How do you celebrate? I like to think of all the people who have gone before and those who will go boldly forward in the future.
The idea of visiting other places or planets is exciting. What will we find? A new species? How do they govern themselves? What kind of communities will they share? How do they procreate? Do they feel emotions? Have eyes and ears or are they telepathic?
As an author, I have the ability to answer some of these questions while writing my books. I am currently working on Aqua Magic, where my hero and heroine encounter an underwater world.
It was fun to decide how they govern themselves, what their cities look like and how their communities work.
I know it’s not the same as going boldly into the unknown, but I can get a sense of what that might be like as I build my literary new world. What do you think is the most important discovery in writing a story in a new world? Leave your ideas in the comment section below.
Thank you. I hope you have a great Discoverer’s Day!
Book Four of the Witch Guardian Romance Series
Brenna Ross is trapped in her own mind. Possessed by a Marwolaeth, that is slowly killing her, it used her to murder those she loves. As hard as she struggles to regain control of her body, she can’t break free. Still she will fight, desperately trying to tell her sister she’s sorry.
Marcus Ondine knew the minute the little witch and her older sister walked into his pub, The Blue Dolphin, that she was “the one” — what the magical folk call his “Destined One.” Now he’s returned to Earth to find her possessed by the Marwolaeth. Only by taking her to his home world of Aquarius can he save her from death, but what will happen when she wakes and finds herself in an underwater world?
