Well it began as an idea and a few sentences a little over a year ago but after seven edits and many hours of writing I’ve finally finished my first novel. Legacy – Book One of the Black Prince Saga is an epic fantasy novel taking place twelve years after the destruction of the Elysium Empire.
In one night of fire and blood the thousand year history of the Elysium Empire came to end. Nothing withstood the relentless march of the armies Praxis. The ancient walls of the capital crumbled beneath their might, the city burned, and the imperial family lay butchered in their beds. Through the chaos and death only one faint hope remained a child. A prince without an empire, snatched away in the night by the last of imperial guard all that remains of unbroken chain rulers.
Twelve long years have passed. The baby is now a young man living in hiding, an exile within a land that is rightfully his. Those quiet days of peace are all about to come to close. His enemies have at last caught his scent and the hunt beings again. But the world has changed. Those golden days of power and glory that the prince has heard of his whole life are a long over, it has now become place that neither wants nor needs him. The time has come for Archon Kane the last of the imperial guard to guide the prince to his destiny. But the fates play cruel tricks and no matter how fast they run death and destruction are always on their heels.
It was definitely a learning experience writing my first novel, but I was surprised how easy it was to get going once I got into a regular writing routine. Of course finishing the first draft was only one the beginning I had to spend a few months afterwards just polishing and fixing it up into a decent state. But it was all worth it. Now the hard part begins in trying to market and promote my book something I’ve no experience in but should be an interesting journey.
In the meantime why not buy a copy for yourself or a friend? And if you like it or hate then leave a comment or review.
