Well it's been a little bit since I updated everyone on how the project was going and so I figured while taking a break to go ahead and do so. So, I've been editing alot today and doing some minor tweaks to the story and many of you have stated an interest in Vex and how his story will progress.
Here's the update so far.
First and foremost, a big thank you to all my "Tweeters"...."Twitterers"... Whatever the socially acceptable term for the awesome feedback I have been receiving about the Faedlands as well as Vex. Thanks also to the great friends/family support though FB and the official page.
Vex is certainly central to the story and a majority of the story will revolve around him which I'm sure everyone kind of guessed. But also I wanted to share that there are actually 2 main stories that are going on within this book, And while Vex's story will most likely make up the bulk of things Reia (Vex's Twin sister for new readers) has quite an interesting story of her own going on and that will actually meld together to further the depth of Vex's story in an emotional sense.
Both characters stories were actually done separately for the sake of individuality, They are twins and in such a way some of their base personality is very similar as well as aspects of their physical forms but these are very different people with very different viewpoints. in that I wanted to develop them separately to begin with and now that their stories are finalized in terms of concept the challenge is to blend them together while maintaining a sense of fluidity and not leave a bunch of inconsistencies roaming around.
As well as Reia there are also a few other characters that lend some insight to the story through interaction (But to a much lesser extent) These characters while having smaller roles within the story all have a background concept that is almost equal in detail if not more so in points to Vex and Reia. Every big character you come across in this story has their own story in a sense. I felt that the only way to truly make them feel genuine is to do it this way. Whether they get their own story in the future is up for you (The reader) to decide.
I hope that everyone has been enjoying the site and these posts, I hope to hear from you all soon.
Also, I'm still in the process of looking for a cover artist to help with designs. I have been screening the stuff people have been sending in/recommending and I love it but I want to leave it open for now so that I can really get it right and be able to compare and pick the one best suited for the cover.
If you are or know an artist who is gifted in fantasy art I'd love to hear from you. Please write me a message and if possible a sample cover design at Crimsontears1216@Yahoo.com
Thanks everyone hope to hear from you all soon :)
