NOCTURNA Book Trailer!

Alright, so I know I was supposed to create a one-shot for the beginning of school and I promise I’ll get on it immediately after I’m done writing this, but it’s been a very hectic week trying to get readjusted to college, but I made a book trailer! Yaaaay!!! *chuckles nervously* If you haven’t been able to tell, I also switched the site around! A lot, actually.

Well, here you go, enjoy, and I’ll be writing the one-shot for you lovely people.

Q&A: How was a nine-year-old Alexei able to become King?

At age nine, Alexei became King in title only. The Council actually took over the rulings. Alexei was able to bend those rules and create several laws before he handed the power to the Council. At age twelve, a monster is considered an adult (though not always sexually), so Alexei was able to take control then. He did have much more influence over the Council than his father, who went through the same process before when his father died as well before he came of age. Alexei had a way of manipulating the Council to do what he wanted (and still does) while Gideon just sat back and let them do everything for him. It was during the years when Alexei was named King by title only that the Council established the laws that humans should be enslaved.

Q&A: Who Created the Monster World?

Most of these are actually questions and answers I created during the process of creating my story, so I’ll be posting many of those. If anyone else has questions, feel free to ask! I would love to answer them.


Alexei’s great-grandfather created Nocturna, though at the time it was not hidden from the mortal world. Mortals would come from all over the “world” (the Mediterranean) to meet the dragon King and receive blessings from the mystical beasts.

Writing is a Lot of Work

Prepare yourselves now, fellow writers, because it only gets harder once you finish writing and editing your first book. Especially if you’re thinking of self-publishing. I still don’t know for sure if I am or not, but I am the type of person who likes to prepare for any type of scenario, so here I am.

In the past week, I have finished my Nocturna prequel, now named Beastly Deception, so I’ll be referring to it as that from now on. I have also taken the initiative to write a marketing proposal for Nocturna as well as a press kit, and both are very complex to write and two extremely different things, so it was hard to get into the swing of things. Especially because I hate typing up business documents. Oh well, it is what it is.

But I’ve finished Beastly Deception! =D I’m so happy, honestly. It took me about a month and a half and it has 26,500 words (so short, very short. Good.) since it’s only a novella, but it’s finished and now I’m ready to begin writing all the shit that’s necessary for each book all over again! …Yaaaay… Ugh. Please stop me.
