The Trilogy is Done: So… now what?
10/16/16: Updated with chapter 1 for the AntiHero story.
I find myself at an interesting place to be.
I had never planned on writing books. It just… kind of happened. I’ve put no effort into marketing and zero concern about spreading my books around on websites and forums.
Honestly, this is mostly for fun and as a hobby. 🙂
But I’ve told my tale. So, now what?
I’m considering what I want to do next. I have some ideas for books but I’m not quite sure what to do.
I think I’ll post a few test chapters of various things here and see what you all think as we go along. You patient few who actually visit the blog. 😀
Right now I’ve got a couple ideas. Here they are in a generic 1 paragraph format. Full honesty up front, some of these have only a 1 page outline, and others already have a significant portion written. (One of them all the way up to 45,000 words)
- An Anti Hero story(LitRPG)- A sociopathic hitman is whisked away to another world while on contract. Unfortunately the whisking away makes him very visible during the process and he’s shot in the heart, only to die upon entering the new world. He’s reborn and allowed to keep all the memories of his old life, minus the things that had made him sociopathic to begin with. That and everything to him has the appearance and feel of a video game from his original world. What does a ex-sociopathic military trained contract hitman do in a renaissance world?
- Urban Fantasy- Everyone remembers tales of the boogie man. The monster in the closet. That you’d hide under the sheets to get away from him. What if the boogie man wasn’t only true, but nearly an extinct species? The main character is one of the last remaining boogie men in the 21st century. The rest of his kind being hunted to extinction by other supernatural races, all for fear of the power of a boogieman. Main character is simply trying to survive in a modern world with a supernatural bent.
- Super Hero / Super Villain(LitRPG Lite)- Felix has a pretty crappy super power. He has the ability to modify any item he owns. Except that the amount of power it takes to actually change, modify, or upgrade anything worthwhile is beyond his abilities. Realizing that he’ll never be able to do anything with it, he gets a normal job. This all changes one day when the city he lives in is taken over by Super Villains. Which is to say, not a whole lot changes, but the black market opens some new options for him. He discovers a way to augment his power and make it useful.
