Hello there! Hope your day is going well. It’s a new week and we all have our goals in mind for the days ahead. First on my list is getting the word out about my work in progress.
If you’ve read my writing prompts and are familiar with prompt #17 -Wings, then you know of the story of the girl who awoke with wings of her very own. What you might not know is that the story stayed with me long after I finished the writing prompt. I was reluctant to let the characters go, thus deciding to continue their story into a full-length novel. I had a lot of fun writing the story and am thrilled to tell you that it is done. The ongoing editing, however, has not been so much fun. It often feels like I’m on my 50th round of edits!
So, the point of today’s post was to let you know what was going on, and to get you excited to read my upcoming book. If you have not yet read writing prompt #17-Wings, please feel free to check it out. It’s actually the first chapter of the book.
Without further ado, here is the introduction to Chrysalis of Change:
Lena Flores thought she knew who she was until a set of magnificent wings emerged from her back and turned her life upside down. Lena now knew that she was more than human and had become something unique. What she didn’t know was that her best friend was hiding secrets from her; and the classmate she had been flirting with, Carlos, may be more than he seemed. While trying to make sense of the chaos, there was something troubling her, an ominous feeling that all these things were connected to something bigger.
Commander Carlos Cortez was undercover on assignment at the local university. With little hope, he agreed to study for a year to search for missing females of his kind. What he found was more than he ever thought possible.
Meanwhile, an ancient evil has awoken and has been systematically wiping out their kind while searching for Lena.
Feeling unprepared, overwhelmed, and frightened, Lena isn’t sure if she should trust anyone, but when her body starts changing and powers begin to manifest, it leaves her with little choice. With Carlos’s help, she must learn about her kind and understand why everything is happening. What Lena doesn’t realize is that failure to rise to meet her destiny will condemn not only her people to genocide but doom humanity as well in the process.
Nothing can prepare Lena for the whirlwind of change that has come into her life. With Carlos by her side, will she learn to embrace her newfound abilities and heritage? Will it be in time to save her people and mankind? With billions of lives on the line, there isn’t a moment to lose against such unspeakable evil.
