Liebster Award

Thank you to the ever cool Annalisa Crawford for nominating me. Now I have to share details about my work in progress, The Amaranthine, Book 1 in my Thelum Series.

What is your WIP About?
Claire, an orphan, finds herself immersed in the world of immortals and creatures she could only have dreamed of. Luckily she is assigned a protector, Alex, who has the potential to be more. Together they fight to unleash Claire’s true potential and keep her safe from an unknown enemy.

How long have you been working your WIP?
I have been dedicated to this project for over 6 years.

Who is your MC?
Claire. An orphan and outcast of society.

What are some of the themes you’re exploring?
Normally I don’t plan for themes, but I noticed some popping up. Good always triumphs evil. There being a purpose for everyone. Love makes everything better. Having a few trustworthy friends makes life worth living.

What song would represent your story or MC?
My Immortal by Evanescence.

If you were casting your story as a movie, who would play your main character?
A 22 year old Salma Hayek would be perfect for Claire.

What is your favourite line in your WIP so far?
The furniture was outdated and the colors depressing. It looked as if it belonged to a sixty-year-old spinster. All I was missing were a few cats.

If your MC were to have a pet, what would it be?
A wolf would be very cool. Claire would definitely like the idea.

When do you think your WIP will be done?
I hope to finally have it done this year, including professional editing. It is definitely overdue.

Who is your favourite side character in your WIP and why?
There are two vampires, Robert and Richard that appear in the book. They bring the humor and keep things light.

What’s your MC’s favorite food?
Claire loved junk food and desserts. More to the point, she hasn’t met a burger she didn’t like.

Talking about my novel wasn’t nearly as scary as I thought it would be. Once again, thank you Annalisa. I am supposed to tag a few fellow bloggers and because I’m not big on picking favourites, I nominate everyone who leaves a comment. 


  1. Great to hear more about your novel, Murees. I've worked on novels and short stories far longer than six years :-) And I love being called 'ever cool' xx

    1. You are cool! Thank you for the encouragement.

  2. Good pick for song. And the protector is an Alex - excellent!

    1. Happy New Year! Thank you. Alex is one of my favourite names. It's a great name.

    1. Thank you! You are really kind. I will do it. The time has come :)

  4. I loved reading about your WIP, and I love your favorite line, too. I have a character in my fantasy series who will have a pet wolf or two in a later book.

    Sounds like a great story, that I would love.

    1. Thank you M.J. You are just made of awesomeness.

  5. Good for you. It's nice to read about your work.


  6. I don't think I've ever worked on a novel for 6 years. Probably because I don't write novels. ;0)

    Best of luck with it. Do let us know when it gets published!

  7. Thank you. I will definitely let you know.
