An idea hit me. One that I love. One that I really want to write, but I have one little problem...
I am not sure what genre to set it in!! The basic idea is to explore spirituality, power, and the power of relationships to save people.
I know that is a little vague, but it is a complex story with a generic outline that spans four novels at the moment.
My biggest problem is that I can see the story existing in three different settings
- My existing Barrens End setting, where Liquid Sky, Fate's Harrow, and Shine like Thunder take place.
- A new modern supernatural horror setting that would be somewhere between the Vampire Chronicles, Harry Potter, and the Cthulu Mythos.
- A unique hybrid fantasy setting, a kind of sword and sorcery/dark fantasy/supernatural horror/steampunk thing.
I can honestly see the story in each of these settings, and how each will affect the plot. I am partly looking for comments, and part thinking out loud. I am really unsure which way to go.
What would you all like to see? I am really open to suggestions
My name is C.E. Dorsett, and I am a scifi/fantasy writer. I have written the books Shine Like Thunder and The Chain, just to name a couple. I am really a builder of worlds from the wuxia inspired, scifi setting Our Solemn Hour to the dark fantasy of Dragons of Night. My writing is influenced by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Charlaine Harris, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Frank Herbert, E E Doc Smith and Robert E Howard. I love to tell stories and talk with my readers.
