Introduce your latest writing project with an elevator pitch or maximum 250 words.
I have lots of projects that I am working on at present, but I guess the one that I really want to get finished first is this one, The Ice Planet (not it’s official title). I managed to do it in 248 words – not a bad effort really.
Five years ago, Vyvica Karala was forced to leave her home and planet, and her father, against her will when it was invaded by Ch’ar. Now she is the leader of the D’Authian resistance and one of her best friend’s has been killed by Ch’ar in a desperate attempt to find the resistance.
Kelvaras is a vigilante for hire who lands on his feet when Ch’ar and D’Authian guard both ask for his help. Ch’ar wants to find the princess to obtain a signed treaty, and the D’Authian resistance want to find out who the leak is.
Vyvica and Kelvaras’ worlds collide when he joins the resistance, and immediately sparks fly between the two. They fight and argue about everything, from flying a pod to fighting techniques. Vyvica wants Kelvaras gone, but she is too strongly attracted to him. Kelvaras wants Vyvica, but can’t break through her defences.
When she leaves and attempts to break into the palace alone, information about Kelvaras could just about destroy Vyvica, especially when Ch’ar discovers that she is the princess he is after. To save Vyvica, Kelvaras offers to marry her and a shotgun wedding is celebrated in true resistance style when they gatecrash the party and take back the castle, the government and the planet.
But Ch’ar has one more trick up his sleeve, if Vyvica won’t sign the treaty, he will kidnap her new husband and get him to sign them over. But will he make it off the planet.
Hope it sounds like something you want to read.
