Hello! Some of you may know that I made my way back into writing through the web serial. But with my previous stories they were written out of order and the organization was a mess. I’m trying out the form again but…get this…I’m actually writing in order! The project I’m working on right now is Til Death Do Us Part. Here’s the blurb:
When she signed up for immortality she hadn’t expected it to be like this. It’s been a century and her vampire fiancée still hasn’t put a ring on it. After a much a younger family member marries Mariane starts to rethink her life. Should she hold out for the prize or is her prince charming just a dud in vampire’s clothing?
I always wondered what turnees did after being changed. Mariane is trapped in her seventeen year old body. She was willing to spend the rest of her life with her love but she REALLY expected to have his name while doing it. But that didn’t happen. Til Death Do Us Part is her story. Not only does she has to get used to the new millennium she has to deal with the dreaded mother in law.
I’ve posted the first chapter on Wattpad. You can find it here: http://www.wattpad.com/75217317-til-death-do-us-part
In 2012, I wrote about 175,000 words. I don’t think I’ve ever written that much before then. 2012 was the year I started to taking my writing seriously.
Most of this word count came from my verse, The Mondian Chronicles. This particular verse started in earnest in 2011, but I had had the idea since I was at least twelve or so.
For the longest time I didn’t know what genre TMC fit into. It wasn’t really alternate history as it didn’t deviate from any known history. No, TMC is heavily inspired by real history, but the people themselves are entirely fictional as is their world.
One of my friends mentioned it was fantasy since the world was made up. I was hesitant to call it that because honestly this world REALLY doesn’t have many fantasy elements aside from a few appearances from dead characters that could be taken as hallucinations or dreams.
But this year I figured out what it would be: mannerpunk or fantasy of manners. I was so ecstatic to learn that there was a label for my story.
BUT anyway, I wanted to post a piece from the series here. I don’t write this or any of my other serials in order though. But this piece takes place after the main action of the 1120s when Henri, Marguerite’s father, did away with her mother leaving her and her older sister without their much loved Maman. Marguerite is around 20 in this, having been born in 1121.

Hey guys! I was looking over some notes for my TRW verse. A little background, it’s an alternate history where Princess Charlotte of Wales (cousin to Queen Victoria and original heir to the British throne) didn’t die and lived to become queen. I’m kind of mixing genres potentially with this series. It’s kinda gaslamp fantasy/steampunkish if that makes any earthly sense haha. It’ll be likely a mash up of the Regency and Victorian eras.
Anyway I just wrote the second piece in the series. I don’t have a title for it and I haven’t posted it anywhere else because it doesn’t really fit with the guidelines of my usual place. So I thought I’d put it here. I’d love to here what you think of it
