Updates On My Novel – January 3, 2012

First of all, I’d like to thank all my new followers for all the amazing support you’ve given me. The blog now has frequent visitors and it makes me happy that my work is appreciated. As you’ve noticed, I’ve been posting around 2 reviews per day and I have a contest going on. I think the contest helped bring new readers and it’s the reason why I’ll hold more of them.

Now, the main reason I’m writing this post is because I’d like to update you on the progress of my novel. For those of you who didn’t know I was writing one, you can read my first update post over here: https://iulialesleybooks.wordpress.com/2011/12/24/happy-holidays-novel-update-impossible-does-not-exist/ – the incredible thing about it, is that I know I’m finally on the right track. I barely slept last night because I felt the need to write. Ideas kept popping into my head. I ‘ve been worried, mainly because I was stuck at chapter 5. I’m writing from three different POVs and it’s a pretty hard job to do. The new ideas I had last night had nothing to do with the first book, but with two different characters that are important in the book I’m writing.

I feel compelled to write their story first, and by doing this, get to know the characters better. It will also help me envision the world I built much better. That being said, I think I’m going to put the words on paper now, before they eat me up from the inside. I barely slept around two hours last night because I kept imagining their lines, their emotions…it was pretty intense. I’ve also decided the title for the first book will remain unchanged for the time being, so I might as well share it with you. The book will be called The Archangel Covenant and it’s 7225 words long, for now – I’m hoping it will be a long one. What do you guys think? I might post the first draft of the prologue after we get a few more readers. I would love to get some feedback!

Anyways, I’m ending this post with a picture of an angel and his lover. I’ve been searching the net for a picture that could represent something from my book and this one seemed appropriate for a story of a character I’ll be writing later on. Much love,

Iulia Lesley xo
