I’m excited to hear people’s feedback on the story. You’re welcome to post or email me your thoughts on the story, and, if you like the story, please leave a positive review on Amazon … Goodreads too if you feel so motivated. Positive reviews on Amazon does two awesome things. First, it lets me know you enjoyed the story. Second, it helps other people who are into the same genre find my book and enjoy the story. Both of which gives me that awesome motivation to continue writing and coming up with new exciting content.
Writing and releasing your work is an intensely personal experience of sharing and putting yourself out there for other’s to judge. Every review that comes in, good or bad, a writer checks out and reads. I’ve had a good review left on Flight completely make my bad day into an awesome day where I go home and write more, even though I’m exhausted from working an entire day in the office.
In regards the story, I’ve tried to do a few new things in Destiny. I hope you like the changes, but I’m still getting a feel for my preferred writing style to an extent. While Startüm is still the main hero, there are a number of supporting characters who have their own parts of the story that they are telling. Also, in the final battle scene, I brought in a lot of small sub-characters to give readers the feel of the overall battle and what was happening in the background that would have otherwise been impossible to share with you, the reader, otherwise. I hope this jumping around the battlefield enhances the story for your reading pleasure and doesn’t detract from the story or my writing style. Also, the supporting characters that are telling their part of the story I picked up from Game of Thrones. A world has a lot of things occurring in it as people within the story go about their business. I tried to keep these perspectives in line with Startüm’s overall story, so they are relevant. Also, I enjoy sharing different parts of the action scenes from various characters’ perspectives, although I tried to not repeat the same view as much as I did in Flight.
I think it’s much more in-depth in many ways than Flight. Destiny ended up coming out to be 569 pages in length, if you discount the glossary I added to the back of the book and the other extra pages that shouldn’t be counted. I had a lot to cover with the story, between introducing Irlendria and the species living within the world and the new characters within the storyline.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the story.
