This is probably the most unlikely story I finished this year that I found myself stuck for several days and a month in and change trying to figure out an ending for this story but I figured it out when I finally got day when I wasn’t working to figure it out and hammer out a ending to it but it was well worth the wait and I’ve finally started on book 2 of the series.
What did I learn?
I need to plan out my days more and again work on finishing one project at time. I got jammed up just thinking on an ending for the story and all I really needed was to stop stressing about it and take a full day to write it out.
I also learned that wrapping up a story and calling the ending back to the beginning is worth the effort, thinking and planning to get it done right.
The charm, the looks, the mind, the hot girl and the skills of a true sniper elite in the special forces. All that went to shit in a single blazing hellish day when a giant flaming monster dropped down on him on the day of his proposal and changed his life and destiny forever. He awoke to the dawn of a new day in human history in a broken body mired in blood, steel and strange new elemental powers.
I’m putting it on Amazon Vella. Already have seven episodes down for the first half of the season 1 and already working season 2
Story takes place in New York City during the first events of the alien landing on the city in the book Blue Jumper. It’s a gritty action heavy story with a main character that is believable and you can connect to that kicks ass and you want to truly succeed in spite of the madness he has to contend with in the new world he has awoken up in.
Zack and Eddie go looking for help in finding where Lance has taken Jenny Evens from Eddie’s old boss simply called the Master Mind.
Episode 21 “choose him or her?”
This is the season ending episode. It always appears the new super unit is always two steps behind Lance and his partner Miss Phillips. Zack and Eddie arrive at the location they got from the Master Mind where Jenny is being auctioned off only to see her pushed out a window from a high rise building. They are held at gun point by Lance. Zack is given a choice on who to save. He’s out of energy and can only save one. Jenny or Eddie. Who will he choose? Or is there another option?
Zack finds himself in a strange room of video cameras and army guards walking around. He is uneasy. His unease is kicked up a notch by the thoughts of a mind in the room as the man seems to be dreaming of the past and thinking b strange dark thoughts from some outside source. Another mind is trying to control the Watcher of the Supers Camps.
Zack recalls an exstreamly long detailed dream about his dream girl and her father. Jenny Evens has had an exstreamly physical change in a similar matter as Zack. She is coping with it as best as she can.
The conversation is a long detailed drawn out dream in which he recalls the thoughts, feeling and emotions of the two as they discuss a “job offer” that is strangely like the one Zack has been recently offered.
Zack discovers another possible outcome of being changed by the giant alien that crashed down on his plant. He is questioned about what he knows and ease by which he is taking information and the suddenness of the changes he has to make in his life.
Jumping to different locations isn’t the only thing he’s able to do. He has a nervous habit of jumping ahead of conversations before they happen.
The story is heating up….Zack is coming to terms with his change in his physical form and the change new powers that he has yet to tap into but the offer of a new is about to opening a whole new of opportunities for him to explore….
I normally write my stories in first person point of view but I took a break from that to practice in close third person with some experimenting.
It’s difficult though I wrote my first books in the style but I haven’t practiced it religiously for well over a year and months and of course my writing style has changed a lot sense then. I was less blunt and carefree with my humor and comfortable writing darker elements. Some of the book is a bit of old writing converged with my newer voice.
It’s a work around for me and challenge but I want to use the time I have writing this book in a timely fashion as practice for other book projects. November’s kiss is still on list.
I have love and hates for Amazon vella right now.
The love is working with in their format and writing at a faster pace as I count my words. Each episode is a minimum of 600 words. It’s not really a lot but if you have job and busy schedule it’s work.
I like the feeling though. Writing on the platform feels like work. If feels like I have deadline and a current amount of words and content to get out a day to complete story in time and get paid.
Alright the bad. I’m not sure even now how much the pay comes out to but I know I’m getting screwed. The interface Lord Jesus help me. Is less then desirable and needs updating in current year level. The free app is not indicative of a proper app that is professional. I wish Amazon would come out with a paid version that way they will have to put some effort into the design and update it to current year levels of tech.
Amazon does nothing to promote the stories of the authors. They leave that to the authors and collect the money and attention. I’ll be advertising my stuff as best as I can. I’m thinking about doing videos for bitchut and using my podcast in that fashion. Hmm. I might can do videos reviewing stories on Amazon vella. I have to think this stuff out.
Still. It works I endure the ads but I’m happy to have it. I write a lot and I’ve finished up to 13 episodes in total and I still have more ideas of where to take it and more notes to add on.
In summary, for the moment I may not make much from the site but the story is good and worth the effort I’m putting into it and I am challenging myself in producing my art on time and less mistakes. I don’t know how it will be but I’m still interested.
