A long, long, long, long time ago, before the wind, before the snow…
Just kidding. I’m not going to recite Sir Psycho Sexy for you here, but it is a fact that as soon as I wrote the words a long, long the rest just kind of appeared on the page and now, as I type I can hear the Chili Peppers in my ear.
But I digress.
Or I’m stalling. Which is highly likely, and something I do quite a lot these days when it comes to my writing. But that’s another blog post altogether.
Anyway, a long, long time ago I wrote and self-published a paranormal romance trilogy called The Sanctum. It’s about a girl and a guy and a prophecy. With some warriors and dragons. A southern-fried vampire. A conflicted shifter. Some sexy trolls. And a most delicious husband-and-wife baddie combo.
It’s a lot of words, and they’re all written in third person.
And now I’m re-writing them in first.
I’m only three chapters in, and it’s a lot of work, but damn if I’m not kind of loving this exercise in self-destruction (because holy shit, why am I doing this) and rediscovery (because holy shit, of course I’m doing this).
This is going to take F O R E V E R.
If you read the original trilogy, and are interested in reading my reworked, first-person version, leave me a note in the comments, and I’ll give you a taste of chapter one.
