Current Projects

,First things first, I’d like to apologize for the lack of titles that my projects have because I suck at coming up with titles. I might have a working title though but since I am one of the most indecisive people in the world, it will probably not remain for long. But to make up for it, each of my projects has a nice aesthetic Pinterest board you can look at!

Project #1

Working Title: A Mirror of Smoke
Series: This is the first book in a series.
Current Stage: Writing First Draft
Thematic Statement: “Be who you are, not who you’re expected to be.”

This is partly a combination of my NaNo 2015 & 2016 novels, since they both spawned from the same idea. Since then, more perspectives have been added and I love the story much more. I’m hoping to write the first draft in July (with Camp NaNoWriMo) then edit it continuously throughout the rest of the year.

  • Asha has struggled to keep her family alive from a drought that has cursed her land. But, when the opportunity arises for Asha to get revenge on the person she hates most, she can’t resist taking that chance. However, the exact same person might bring her the salvation she desperately needs.

    When Kaiah’s twin brother is murdered, she takes the opportunity to escape her arranged marriage and become him. Taking his seat upon the Valiath Council, Kaiah is determined to find her brother’s killer. But, she soon learns that everyone wears a mask as deadly games are played within the court of lies. With the assailant closer than she thinks, Kaiah will have to outsmart her brother before she becomes just like him.

    Corvus’ path to becoming a scholar becomes more intricate with every step he takes. From finishing University to discovering ancient powers with a master thought dead, Corvus discovers the world has more troublesome secrets. Although, when he learns he possesses lost magic, his life becomes more complicated than he anticipated. Corvus will have to act quick, if he wants to solve one of the world’s biggest mysteries.

    However when the situation becomes dire, the three of them work together to stop a threat that could kill them all.

Project #2

Working Title: Throne for the Undead
Series: This is the first book in a duology(?).
Current Stage: Shelved (General Premise written)

This story came about partially because of my fascination with destiny and the stars. There’s also been one or two korean dramas that inspired some elements in this story which has enriched the drama (hahaha). But I should mention, this story is a dark one filled with betrayal and deceit. The world does not forgive, and it does not forget.

  • Blurb coming soon
