Finally....

Well, I have finally started the writing process of Through the Flames, seeing as how I finally finished up that fanfiction I had been working on.

Now, I'm not insulting fanfiction or anything- it's great for some people- but I hope to never do anything of the story ever again. Working within the constraints of another person's world isn't that fun in my opinion. It's far more fun to sit down and do the world building process. After all, once you finish creating a fantasy world, it's so easy to get lost in that world.

But anyways, I've discovered that writing a description/summary for a book is incredibly frustrating. Well, it is when it's the first book in a series, at least.

You're stuck knowing that you need to explain what it is without making it sound too simplistic, but being too detailed gives away certain elements of the story as well. I can now see why many authors try to keep the summaries for their books brief and vague.

Well anyways, I guess I get to see how long my plan of writing a chapter a day lasts.

Thanks for reading.

Well to me it would make sense to write a summary of the book, while implying that the book itself is only a piece of a bigger picture.

But the tricky part is that the summary has to be good enough to catch someone's attention and make them want to buy the book. Each book obviously has a different summary, of course.

Here's what it is at the moment:
"Caleb knew that his life would change with his best friend's departure, but he never could have imagined how greatly it would change.

With everyone that he has ever cared about destroyed, he finds himself on an adventure that will completely redefine his life and set him upon a path that will uncover secrets of the likes that will shake the kingdom of Arcadia to its very core.

Through the flames, Caleb will go, for the strongest metals can only be forged with the hottest flames and the greatest pressures."

Holy crap dude! that is awesome! Reading that makes me want to read it right now. I am serious, that summary presses the right buttons for me that says "What are you doing reading the summary idiot? Read this awesome adventure already!".

Thanks. I'm glad you like it. I'll post three sample chapters on my website after I finish writing and editing the first part of the book. So they'll all be up around the fifteenth.
