When Pil tried to remember her years as a toddler there weren’t many memories to grasp onto…except for one.
It was small and seemingly insignificant. A memory laced with laughter and smiles, the occasional huff of a horse, the incessant creaking of rolling carriage wheels, the soothing sound of her father’s warm voice, the comforting touch of her mother’s soft hands, and a bright yet distant light.
This dappled light seeped through the trees that rushed overhead like promises from a fairy; a glowing warmth that kissed Pil’s small round face and made her believe anything was possible.
This memory seemed insignificant but for Pil, now seventeen years old, it was a treasure to hold onto for the rest of her life.
Mestra Galerunner would’ve never thought she’d be a mother. As a young elven girl, she flitted about the Asrana Forest after running away from home, getting into trouble, and causing her elders endless grief. As an adult, she learned the ways of the assassin, choosing to exist as a solitary being and elude companionship. And then one day, on a stormy night, she found Pil and everything changed.
Almost five months ago I released my first short novel, PIL which was such a major milestone for me. For years I have been working on bringing these stories in my head to life and to finally release one of these stories to you all was nothing short of mind-blowing. Especially when I got my first review and it was overwhelmingly positive. Suddenly, all of that hard work and brainstorming felt worth it.
Of course, that wasn’t the end. In fact, it was only the beginning.
I can’t believe it. It’s been 40 days since I sold my first short novel PIL and since then, numerous people have read my book. Not only that, but I got my first review of my story and I’m just so happy.
(If you’d like to read the review you can find it here.)
I want to thank you all for your support since I joined this site. You have inspired me to continue to do what I love, watch movies, and write.
Of course, PIL is not the end, it’s only the beginning. Be sure to keep an eye out for the next story in my series, The Women of Adalor.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
I can’t believe I’m writing this but yes, my short novel has its first official review. This is such a big moment for me. After working on this book for so many years hearing such a positive review has literally gotten me emotional.
This is just the beginning of my writing career and it’s getting off to a bang. Here’s the review if you’d like to read it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
