New Writing Blog

I’ve created yet another blog!

I’ve decided to post one of my novels as an online serial novel It’s the novel that precedes Diana’s Diary, and I’m illustrating it, just like I did the diary.

So here it is: Bella Diana. Take a look and let me know what you think. I’ll start posting next chapters in another day or two. The novel is complete, so unless I change my mind about putting it out there for free, there will be regular installments every couple of days or so.

Note: This post is cross-posted on my main blog.

Wow, bunnygirl, neat-o! I've bookmarked Bella Diana so I can check it out at leisure.

Bunnygirl, what kind of story is "Bella Diana?" Just want to know before I try reading it ...

Michael, it's the second book of my speculative peak oil trilogy. The first book (Tin Soldier) is backgrounded in resource wars, the second (Bella Diana) is backgrounded in resultant civil war, and the last book will deal with rebuilding and climate change issues.

The "Diana's Diary" blog falls between the second and third book and was pretty much unplanned. The "First Diary" is a 1,500 mile road trip through a poorer, low-resource Southwest, with a lot of adventures along the way.

But I'm rambling. You asked about Bella Diana. I never bothered querying it, so this is going to be kind of seat-of-the-pants. I hope this helps:

Will Channing and Diana Nunez are working for a group of insurgents to reunite the desert Southwest, which is dealing with civil war and outside invasions, after seceding from the United States during the peak oil resource wars.

Although they're not kin, Will and Diana have lived like siblings for the last seven years. He wants her to think of him as more than just an adoptive brother, but Diana has her eye on the regional commander's lieutanant. A deadly mistake shatters her confidence and gives Will the opportunity he has been looking for. Taking advantage of her confusion and sense of failure, he convinces her that only by marrying him will she be truly safe from people who would harm her.

But Diana can't love Will the way he wants her to. If she is ever to have a peaceful life, away from the civil war Will is committed to, she must somehow regain her childhood faith in her own abilities. This means not just killing the man who murdered her family, but finding it in herself to leave the man who has protected her and been brother and best friend for nearly half her life.

Okay, I'm intrigued. It sounds good, although maybe a bit on the mushy side - which is fine with me, since I like genre blending. Since Bella Diana is the second book, where can I find Tin soldier? I'd like to check it out.

Actually, I'm more into anti-romance than romance. That's why even though Will and Diana are perfect for each other, I screwed it up so they can't possibly be happy. I'm evil that way. :-)

"Tin Soldier" is password-protected until I decide if I'm going to not bother with further querying. But if you send your email addy to me at uhamp at yahoo dot com, I'll add you to the permissions list.

"Anti-romance" - that sounds pretty cool. Now I'm definitely hooked.
