I have an amazing announcement to make. Mexlor Tournaments, the YA fantasy novel I have been working on is finally completed as a first draft! I’m very proud of this accomplishment.
At 132,974 words and 294 pages, it stands as the largest novel I have ever created!
And one of the coolest things about the creation of it is that it took exactly 5 months to complete. To the day.
Here’s the synopsis if you’re interested:
Branden Ice, a guard for the village of Harklek is on duty when mysterious warriors attack his village, and capture all of them. They cart them off in carriages to a strange, underground prison. Branden realizes that all the prisoners are forced to fight each other in bloody arena battles called Mexlor Tournaments.
He also finds out that he and his friends are not the only ones stuck there against their will. All the prisoners are. Branden teams up with them, and they begin to form an Underground Army. They plan to escape, but not all of the prisoners want too.
Branden and the Underground Army leader, Talitha Race, must help protect and free the prisoners as well as dodge the Mex guards, Mexlor’s henchmen and soldiers. After they get free, Branden is chosen to be leader, and they must defend themselves against the Mex guards.
After a long time of battling, Branden struggles with being leader and does not want to return to Mexlor Tournaments and defeat Mexlor, but he must. Finally they travel back to fight Mexlor, but Mexlor may not be the hardest enemy to defeat.
