As the second month of 2019 gets underway, I am getting pretty focused on my writing and art. I have already written several short stories and am going to keep looking out for some more submission calls, but now it is time to focus on longer pieces. And most of those pieces are going to be in the fantasy genre! I actually just sent a short fantasy novella off to my editor and have a cover artist working on the cover as we speak, so I am hoping to have it out by March! I am now working on outlining a four book fantasy series that I am so excited to get out in the world! These will be novels and might be the biggest undertaking that I have ever had as an author. I am also working on the sequel to my romantic fantasy Quest for Redemption, Quest for Self! So I am going to be writing a lot about elves, dragons and more the rest of the year!
With my writing life centered around fantasy for the year, it got me thinking that maybe I can bring my art into that realm as well. So the rest of the year I think that most of my art is also going to focus on dragons, elves and fantasy. I might even combine both the writing and art for a fantasy based solo art show next year! I'm going to be pretty busy the rest of the year!
Today I thought that I would do another character interview, this time with Zanna from my romantic fantasy Quest for Redemption. Let the fun begin!
So Zanna, tell us a little bit about yourself, how do you want people to see you?
Well truth be told I used to be an elitist. Being born into the royal family of elves, the rulers of our realm, well it made me a little short sighted for a long, long time. Recently I had an epiphany and am trying to mend my ways, to make a difference, to make up for wrongs that I have helped commit in the past. Now I want to be seen as someone who is fair, someone who cares about all the races and wants to protect the good among us.
What brought about this epiphany? Rumor has it there was a romantic interest involved.
*blushing* I had already started thinking about my own personal path to redemption before, it started with a lively sprite that I met. However, I did meet someone who opened my eyes to so many things.
What is next for you? What do you see in your future?
I have many obstacles in my way, but I would like to say that I see peace and happiness in my future. One day I will become ruler of the magical realm and I dream of being a just one. And of course I want a family of my own.
