So a massive thanks to everyone who voted on the blurbs! I will be going with the second option (preferred two to one) and there are a few things to adjust as were pointed out to me (you wonderful people know who you are).
So the plan was to put out the first two chapters together but I'm an idiot/moron/loser who can't write in a linear fashion and what I've actually put up is only ~10,000 words out of the 45,000 that I've actually written (I've even finished some of the endings. Is this normal? Am I the only weirdo here?).
I’ve been working on this full time—often past midnight—but I’m starting to get cold feet. Am I wasting my time with this? I love working on it but don’t know if I’m being delusional in thinking it might amount to anything enjoyable for others, let alone publishable.
So, please save my writing spirit, unless it’s totally rubbish and boring in which case please let me know before I embarrass myself further. Thanks!
Warning; contains some mature language and themes including (but not limited to) manipulative relationships, poor mental health and violence, including some violence that involves children.
All feedback and grammar corrections highly valued.
Thank-you for reading.
Why in Hades is Zeus stalking your every move?
Having recently fallen from the graces of the supernatural police force known as Angel you are determined to unearth the shadowy forces you sense were working behind the scenes. As a young god wield lightning and cloak yourself in rain as you set up your own detective agency in a brutal city manipulated by demons, sorcerers and powerful deities.
Can you bring down trafficking rings and cults, protect yourself from assassins and expose the city’s corruption? What trouble are the other gods stirring and why are you being targeted by the elusive organisation known as the Nest of Snakes?
- Take on supernatural cases to pay for your rent
- Reinforce your combat skills with a gun, katana, conductive chains, or throwing knives
- Develop an extensive network of allies or run the streets as a lone wolf
- Interrogate ghosts, tail after werewolves and negotiate with ambitious humans
- Twist your way around the law or uphold the founding values of the city
- Play as female, male, non-binary, gay, straight or bi
Will you be a formidable avenger who paves a path of blood or a defender for the city’s many vulnerable?
Can you distinguish between your allies and enemies and expose the truth behind what plagues the city? Most importantly, will you survive the Nest of Snakes?
As always, thank-you for reading! I'm super nervous about this.
