Sorry again for the non-optimized image…I forget these things when I’m in math lockdown (and procrastinating from it, obviously). Anyway, I’m doing two NaNo novels this November. I did not decide this. But this particular tale is rather close to my heart (enter sappy violin) and it suddenly popped up again while I was outlining the other novel. I can’t drop the other one, and this one is refusing to go away, so I’ll do them both.
When I explain the plot to you, you might freak out or at the very least be put off. Well…all I can say is that it’s not what it sounds. It is (she said humbly) different from anything you’ve ever read. It will sound familiar, but I can promise you that nothing about it is even remotely familiar. Don’t judge a book by its summary, however silly that sounds. Put all thoughts of Twilight and other fantasy out of your mind, because this isn’t fantasy. And now I sound demented…*sigh* This is so hard to explain, so I don’t think I will. You can decide for yourself. Anyway. I give you…
Title: Spare Me Over
MFC: Lily Eden Paddington
MMC: Trystan Edwards
Synpsis-ish Thing: Death is too arrogant for his own good and thinks humans are a waste of space. The Key Holder has determined that Death must be punished, and learn his lesson; and so he is sent to earth as a teenage boy, where he must live through four years of high school and learn what it’s like to be human, while still carrying out his duties.
Trystan Edwards, as Death calls himself, ends up fitting in quite well. He is attractive, has extraordinary musical ability, and gradually begins to understand what it is about humans that the Key Holder loves. With his newly empathetic view on what death means for humans, he resolves to perform his task more carefully. He is nearly ready to go back to the in-between realm, when he meets Lily Eden Paddington, a girl who has just lost her best friend to suicide. When he begins to feel things about her he does not understand, everything changes…
…or was this the Key Holder’s plan all along?
I know the image for the cover is copyrighted, but I couldn’t find any other image that worked well. Besides, I plan to send this out for actual publication instead of self-publishing. That’s right, my friends, this will hopefully be my first published novel, if anyone will have it.
In other news, I’m finished with math. All that’s left is creative writing, and that doesn’t seem too daunting 😉
