The Creation

A Brief Look Back:

A few years ago, two people with common interests met each other online. they quickly became friends, due to many common interest, and went on to become the best of friends they could have ever hoped to find – the only problem being they were from two different parts of the United States. April, being from Maryland, and Stephanie, being from Florida. But, that did not hinder their friendship at all. They emailed, messages and text each other at all hours, sending the longest messages their families had seen in such short spans that a joke arose that they should just ‘write a book already’.

And of course, they loved that idea.

The ideas began to work in their minds, and it didn’t take long for them to agree upon the subject of their future novel together – Vampires and Werewolves. The immortals on everyone’s mind.

At the time, the were not very many Vampire and Werewolf novels around like there is currently (what with Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Trueblood, etc.) so they thought it would be a great idea to bring these immortals back into the light again after being inspired by Anne Rice’s vampire novels, Bram Stokers ‘Dracula’ and the movie ‘The Lost Boys’. The final idea – characters, plot, names and details – were all sorted with in a weeks time. It’s needless to say just how enthusiastic they were about this idea.

Thus the writing began. You may be wondering just exactly how people co-write a book, and even more so, how they co-write a book when they live in two different states. They messages each other. A lot. Even more than before. They both agreed and accepted the chapters they would take, they would proof-read each others writings and give advice/critique. And so this process went on for 7 months until Hyblood, the first in the Wolva Trilogy, was completed.

Thrilled. Excited. Proud.

All these things and more were felt on that day, but little did they know they were far from being finished. Editing of the novel still had to be finalized before they could allow anyone to read it, the cover still had to be drawn and made into a cover, and there was that little nagging detail of just how one goes about getting a book written by two unknown authors published.

But that did not get them down. The editing was finished, the cover was done,business cards were printed and ready to be handed anywhere and everywhere, and they happened upon a self-publishing website.

To hold a real copy of ones own book, something you created and know better than anyone ever could, is a feeling you could not explain. Some words may touch upon it (pride, surreal, shock, glee) but none will ever fully describe it.

About The Novel:

Unlike many of the Vampire/Werewolf novels that are roaming the shelves of bookstores today, The Wolva Trilogy is not set in a modern day school, nor is it even set in modern day times – it is set in France in the 1800s.

The setting and time was chosen for some very simple reasons – vampires and werewolves read best in older times, and France is one of the classic ‘birth places’ of all vampires (that and New Orleans).

Hyblood, the first book, introduces you to the characters you will follow throughout the series, reeling you in to be attached to them as they go through the trials and tribulations of this story. The Hero will falter, the Villain will entice you to come closer, and the plot will keep you reading as you dare to ask yourself, “What’s going to happen to them now?”.

You may now be wondering, just what on earth a ‘Hyblood’ and a ‘Wolva’ are, for you know you’ve never seen these terms before. But to answer that question, would be to give away parts of the story that are best found out in the pages of the novel.

The goal behind ‘The Wolva Trilogy’ was to bring back Vampires and Werewolves in an appropriate light. To see them for what they are; immortal monsters, to see them for how they are to each other; eternal enemies, and to see just what could happen between them if the chance ever arose; a forbidden love.

But do not be worried if you aren’t one who wants gushy immortals, Hyblood is full of murder, betrayal, lies and a sadistic Vampire leader who is sure to capture your attention.

The dream for Hyblood now is for people to read and enjoy it around the world. To get to that point will be a long road, but it’s a journey worth taking. The characters of The Wolva Trilogy deserve to be read, loved and remembered.

The Summary for ‘Hyblood’:

“In 1803 France, a young Frenchman named Gaspard, and his friend move out from the Paris orphanage they have lived in for over a decade. They find jobs at an old mansion and perhaps a friendship in the owners daughter, Jocelyn. 

While working there, they learn of the disappearance of previous stable hands, and believe some coincidence must have occurred – until something happens to change both of their lives forever.

Now Gaspard finds himself in the midst of creatures he has only heard about in fairy tales. He secretly travels to the vampire castle after sunset to be trained by his own kind to survive. Though, he is unaware that the brutal vampire leader, Lucas, has great plans for him and that his change was for an essential reason that he will soon discover.

With the help of his mentor, Gabriel, he is taught the vampire ways and to keep himself hidden from the human world. But his growing friendship with Jocelyn threatens to reveal the truth of what really lies beneath his flesh.

Between his ever reoccurring dreams of his past and his constant feuds with Lucas, he is caught in a reality he wants nothing to do with. Will he be able to keep himself in control with the creature he has become?

A Vampire. A luster of blood.”

  1. Just sent a sample to my Kindle. Thanks for ‘follow,’ and I look forward to reading “The Wolva Trilogy.”

  2. Thanks for deciding to follow my blog, I have decided to download Hyblood onto my Kindle,

    Thanks for following my review blog 🙂 Good luck with Wolva!

  6. Congraulations on completing your first novel! Indeed, what a thrill it must be! I do enjoy paranormal stories and love vampires especially so your story intrigues me and I think the cover is excellent! I just want to say that be very careful with your proofreading/editing (even on your blog). We all make mistakes but as someone who has been reviewing books for people for over 4 years, who writes for several online magazines including my own blog (thank you for the follow, I shall return the favour!), and who has also self-published a book, there is nothing more important than a well edited story.

    I truly wish you both all the very best with your book and look forward to reading it some day.

    All my best,
    Christine

    • Thank you very much for your kind words. Yes, editing seems to be my only nemesis in writing. I have a nasty habit if being able to read sentences/etc. as they should be written properly, and not necessarily as they’re actually written. I like to think in time I’ll get better at it, just another learning experience along the way!

      Thank you again, and I appreciate the follow back!

  7. Thanks for deciding to follow The Write Edge! I appreciate your support. If you’d ever like a review of Hyblood, please do contact me!

  8. Thanks for the follow! And I’ll return the favor!

  9. interesting book so far, i like how you put it together 2, people who live together cant even come together to make things happen like that, so hats off for the initiative

  10. Em

    Thank you for following me over at easyreadinganddamnhardwriting! As you can probably see, I do read and review books, so I’ll definitely be adding this one to my to-read list. Congratulations on your achievement and keep up the good work!

    One tip: I would suggest creating a book page for it on Goodreads.com. There doesn’t appear to be one yet and you might get more of an audience through the site– as a whole I find the community is surprisingly open to self-pubs.

  12. I just finished writing a book, too. You’re right. There’s nothing quite like that feeling. Good Luck with getting it out there!

  13. This seems like an awesome experience – wish any of my friends liked writing more than two lines at a time. Congratulations on the book! I’d like to read it, but I do not own a Kindle and from what I could gather, the services you’ve appointed don’t ship all the way to Brazil. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for following my blog, and good luck with the next books!

    • Hmm. I’m not entirely sure, as I don’t own a Kindle myself, but I think someone mentioned to me before that you can still download the Book from Kindle and read it from your computer. Or even read it using the free Kindle app for iPhone’s/etc.

      If not, Hyblood will be available on other eBook websites such as Apple, Nook, Kobo and others after mid-April of this year. I will post about it when it happens.
