Silent Darkness - YA Fantasy
I’m a quiet person. I love to cook/bake. I watch a lot of Netflix & Hulu cause I got rid of cable several years back. I love to read fantasy and thriller.
Love fantasy. I don’t have specific tropes that I hate or love. It just depends on my mood which is going to pull me into buying a book.
I don’t like descriptive rap scenes or overly descriptive abuse scenes. I’m okay with a little bit of description in romance scenes.
I say “rough draft completed” but really I am considering a rewrite on some parts of it and could use someone to bounce some ideas off of. As it stands now here is what it is about:
The blood red moon is a harbinger to intensify magic whether it is for good or evil. When connected to stones hidden in the town of Awakening it can give someone the ultimate power as it did the witches in Salem. It took five families to come together to defeat the witches of Salem.
These five families escaped with the stones and founded a new town, Awakening. The founding families made a pact to protect the town and the stones through out the generations.
Now Leo and his friends are graduating High School and coming to terms with their roles as protectors of the town.
Naima is running from her past. When she comes upon the town of Awakening there is something that draws her in and makes her stay.
As Naima tries to settle in her path crosses with Leo’s. Little do either know that the other will help them in ways they never imagined as mysterious deaths begin to happen in town.
The door slammed, and the four men rushed to the back of the house.
“Did they make it out, Jonas?” Petter inquired as he handed him a mini satchel that Jonas put in his pocket.
“Yes, all of our families made it out of town.” Jonas answered as he looked at each man.
They made it to the safe room under the house and Erick locked the door.
“It should be morning soon.” Otto said as they circled a table.
“We leave then. Once we have reached our families only travel by sunlight.” Gunnar stated.
The men crouched covering their ears as the ceiling shook to the ground. Many would think it was the worst storm of their lives, but the men knew better. They knew she would come for them. The men stood quickly, and Otto grabbed his knife, cut his finger and let some blood drop into a bowl and passed it to the right so the others could add their blood. Otto then grabbed a book and found the page he needed to protect them till morning.
When the bowl made it back to him he took a shirt from the table by the wall and dipped a part of it in the blood, potion mixture and started painting a Celtic knot of protection on the door. As he was finishing the door started shaking. When he finished the men backed away from the door.
When morning came the stones would be useless. The men kneeled in a circle laying hands on the shoulders on the one on either side of them and together they prayed for their family’s safety till they could meet up with them.
After some time, the men broke the seal and checked upstairs to see if it was morning. Seeing the rays of light coming through the windows the men grabbed their things and took off to find their families. They would create a new life someplace else and do anything they had to keep everyone safe and pass on their knowledge to their children to prepare them for what may come.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
