Writing Journal – The Fall of the Stone – 21 May 2023

I did it! I finished my manuscript today! Who would have thought? I had writer’s block for so long during this project, but today I finally wrote the last chapters!

Although the reason for finishing my book or rather, what brought it on, is rather sad. I received some upsetting news. You know when someone you love is going through a terrible time and you want to be there for them but circumstances won’t allow you to? I won’t go into details, but it was upsetting and I felt depressed about it for most of the weekend. Today (Sunday) I decided to escape in my manuscript. My stories are always a welcome escape. I dive into the fantasy world I have created and for hours on end I am in there, fully immersed, forgetting all about the real world.

I wrote for hours and hours, and after that writing marathon – which is so cathartic – I reached the end of the story at last.

Now begins the proofreading, editing, beta reading, editing, and formatting part. I think, though, that I can achieve the publishing date.

By the way, you can pre-order the Fall of the Stone on Amazon 🙂

In Camden Town, London, Eva leaves a party with a stolen jacket, followed by her ex-boyfriend, Darryn. She has no idea what dangerous item is hidden in her pocket. When her hand closes around it the ground splits open, whisking her and Darryn away into an underground time tunnel. Darryn’s brother Daniel, who is the only witness to the strange event, retrieves the Stone, unwittingly unleashing its owner, Aeron, a creature of darkness. Weakened by the loss of the Stone, Aeron is set on killing Daniel and recovering his lost power, but Calliope, a wayward harpy, puts a stop to his plan, snatching Daniel out of his grasp. "Now both siblings must confront monsters and work with unlikely allies as they seek to protect the stone from Aeron in two different time periods. This was a really fun adventure filled with all the creatures and lore you could want from a mythological epic! The time travel and double plot aspects of the story were great, and the characters were fun and meaningful! Anyone who reads my reviews knows that I love Percy Jackson, and this is a book that definitely captured a lot of that feel. If you love mythology, definitely come travel through time with The Path of the Stone!" (Amazon reviewer)
