This fantastic blogfest is brought to us by D.L. Hammons and Elise Fallson. It gives writers a chance to get the word out about their current projects.
Most of you know about my A-Z Challenge story I wrote called Adam's Apple. (You can find the story in its un-revised form HERE.) I'm still editing it and intend to self-publish it when it's ready. Still, I thought I'd take advantage of this blogfest to let anyone new to my blog know about it.
WIP Title: Adam's Apple
Word Count (projected/actual): I am expecting this novella to end up at about 25,000 words. Right now, it's about 17,000 words long.
Genre: Science fiction/humor. I knew I wanted to write something along the lines of Douglas Adams, yet I also wanted my own voice to shine through.
How long have you been working on it?: I started it about a month before the A-Z Challenge. I only worked on it sporadically at first, but as the challenge drew closer, I dedicated more time to it.
Elevator Pitch: A young man is rather disgruntled when he's exiled from existence, but thanks to a mysterious young woman and a grumpy man with a big red button, he finds himself immersed in a rather odd revolution. He wants to get his life back together, but he doesn't necessarily want the life he once had.
Brief Synopsis: Adam Evans learns that due to the theft of his apple by a woman he doesn't know, he's being charged with murder by the overly bureaucratic Magistrate Bibble. His punishment is to be expelled from existence. While his physical body would live on, it would be illegal for anyone to interact with him. However, just before his chemical castration can be done, a young woman wisks him off. She is a member of a rebellion that wants to get rid of Bibble since he clearly presents a danger to any sane creature in the Federation. Adam must take risks to find help from some rather odd knitting knights, and he learns about why his life has been so odd and unlucky as far back as he can remember. Only by embracing this fact of his own oddity can he get his own life back.
In addition to the main story, I'm adding some appendices with humorous side stories and fun facts about the universe of Adam's Apple.
I'm not currently looking for any CP's or beta readers since I'm still working on the revision, but I would welcome any ideas from those who've read the version of the story on this blog.
Now that you've read what I have to say, feel free to hop around and see the other entries in this blogfest!
