So… This happened!
I don’t… How even… What?
When I first started last year, I never thought anyone would ever read my writings. I set out to write a blog with the simple goal of having an outlet where I could talk about stuff. Frankly, I was amazed when people read it at all! It was shocking to me to get one follower!
Triple digits seemed completely impossible to me! But here we are!
It may seem like a silly thing to be amazed by. But I want to make this clear: this is my dream! I’ve wanted to be a published writer since I was twelve years old! The image of people reading what I write, be it a review or a story, was everything that I had ever wanted! But no matter how long I worked for, it seemed like something I wouldn’t achieve for years, if at all!
Then I started this blog. It grew bit by bit, day by day with each post. Thanks to you guys, I’m living my childhood dream!
No joke, I’m actually tearing up while I write this! Nothing I could say would do you guys the justice you deserve. Seriously, from the bottom of my heart: thank you!
Now, you may have noticed that there’s been a hole in the schedule for a few months now. I promised a long time ago that I would fill it eventually. Now, to celebrate this milestone, I will fulfill that promise at long last!
For nearly a decade now, I’ve wanted to publish a fictional story of my own creation! Now, I will fulfill that dream! To fill the Sunday slot, I’m releasing my own web-novel!
Today, I am proud, excited, and terrified to announce Energia: Titans of Verità!
Set in the year is 3172, Energia takes place in the city of Unity, a city built on the distant world of Verità, the most recent and valuable planet to be colonized by the United Earth Alliance. Peace is a fickle thing, often breaking down at the smallest inconvenience. Worse, the planet’s natives are both incredibly powerful and highly hostile. Thus, the completely neutral and all-powerful Order sends their Operatives, shielded by mechanical armor that grants them unfathomable power, to preserve the peace.
Anna Ironchase aspires to join Order to follow in the footsteps of her late mother. Anna hopes to learn the truth behind her mother’s passing, as everyone around her has written it off as a simple field accident. To achieve her goal, she’ll do whatever it takes to climb higher in Order’s ranks and uncover their darkest secrets. She may be rash, stubborn and cocky. But she might be exactly what Unity needs.
The Titans of Verità are waking. Humanity needs a protector stronger than any other. But will absolute power corrupt absolutely?
I’ll admit that the story isn’t the most complex. It’s a simple coming-of-age story with sci-fi charged action. There are some questions central to the story that I hope to explore in an interesting way, but the primary goal is to deliver an entertaining sci-fi adventure with likable characters and an interesting setting.
If that sounds like something you’d enjoy, then I hope you give it a chance! I’ve put a lot of time, effort and planning into making this series as good as possible. However, I understand that I, as a writer, still have a long way to go. If I want to refine my craft, then I’ll need unbiased, constructive feedback.
The plan is as follows. Currently, I have eighteen chapters of the story written, edited and ready for you guys to read, with the rest of the story outlined and planned out! I’ll be working on another batch of chapters while the finished ones air, using your feedback to further improve the story as we go along! With your help, I hope to craft something truly spectacular over the coming years!
Yes, that is an open invite to tear my work apart. I can handle it! Tough skin is another thing that I hope to gain from this project! Please, be as constructive and merciless as possible!
I’m going to regret writing that last paragraph, aren’t I?
“Okay!” I can hear you saying in the back of my mind like a crazy person. “I’m interested! When can I read the first chapter?” Well, my friend, I have good news! The prologue chapter of Energia: Titans of Verità premieres next week on September 1st!
I hope to see you then! Thank you all again so much for 100 followers! You give me a reason to get out of bed in the morning! I hope that you’ll continue to support me in the years to come!
Thank you all so much! Have a lovely day!
