I finished a story titled "Tom the Berserker." I made about eight parts or chapters of that story actually. I think the sections are chapters but their lengthy chapters anyway. Mostly around one hundred and fifty pages via my Microsoft word program 2003. I could have combined the stories together into one file. I did that before I did any editing of the stories. I figured this time I would have to do that combination once I'm sure I'm done editing the stories. I keep on thinking on various ideas for each of the "Tom the Berserker" stories all eight parts of them. Just to help the reader understand why this Tom the main character has his traits of being an assassin and doing anything for acceptance. Also including gaining his Father's message of what his Father wanted him to do. Such as understanding the message and what his Father was trying to tell him while living on an alien planetary world I dub by the name of "Shadan." Tom is a rather unique individual at the moment. He has a Human appearance but has ah some scary alien side to him that I dub by the name of Berserker. Its another name for Banshee a screamer humanoid species that have horse like heads with a bony Human like body and an ability to scream very loudly. Tom is partially Human and partially the Banshee species while trying to find acceptance from anyone including doing work as an assassin for a group called High Council. He learns that his acceptance should come from another source and not from a group while serving as an assassin via lessons his Father teaches him.
Anyway I have one story titled "Guardian" about one hundred and forty four pages so far at the moment on the Microsoft word 2003 program. I keep on thinking of adding something to that story like a theme for this male character to think of having a purpose in life. Maybe some purpose of gaining a female as his companion or having a purpose in his life to live while living in the planetary world he currently lives in after being born there. That other than being the King's illegitimate son born through an actress and heir to the throne of Australia. I call Australia by the name of "Mahalia". Mahalia is an independent nation ruling with their own leader and their own King on an earth like planet I dub Egyptia. I happen to like ancient Egypt hence the name of Egyptia used. I also used the term of Egyptian when referring to the natives. I sort of used the planet earth to be the basis of Egyptia while adding facts and stuff to nations that seem like its a copy of planet earth but in my version. In my version I used the name of Brittany for Great Britain including the name of Columbia for the North America continent. I haven't made up my mind if I should include South America continent or Central America either. So far I'm just exploring this planetary world of Egyptia.
I self published online www.smashwords.com for $0.99 this story focused into Egyptia called "A Stranger's Fear." I sort of published it online after doing some editing to that story. I edited the story the best I could. It's about a stranger traveling on horseback through a forest jungle while trying to avoid man eating dinosaurs. The stranger's story is told by an old man to his grandchildren. I don't right away say who the old man or the stranger is right away. I sort of give details on who they are later in the story.
I also wound up publishing online smashwords this free story titled "Mara's Story". It is about Lisa reading a book which is diary entries by Mara a vampire or some version of a vampire via a computer she typing the diaries in. I called the planetary world Mara lives in with Lisa living in currently as Terra some version of planet Earth. This time I used the excuse of the humanoid natives arriving from another planet to land onto Terra and colonizing it including some of the people are vampires. I didn't use evolution this time to explain on humanoids got to the planet Terra. Instead used the humanoids including vampires crashed landed onto the planetary world of Terra via space ships from a dying planet and colonized it in the process. This time I used excuses towards females appearing to form some twinning look of hair black and intense blue Human eyes and pale white skin as mates for vampires mostly males. The male vampires in Terra mostly communicate via mental mind talk to male vampires all over the place. They also communicate towards females but it mostly focused onto their females their paired to. Also there's exceptions of vampires the males communicating with other females that aren't mates of them. They have this all red eyed colored status as a result of able to do that and achieve the leadership position among the vampires. I call the vampires in my Terra planetary world by the name of "Bloody." I don't use the term vampire but this term Bloody to hint that their vampires living in Terra among Humans while equals or seen as gods in island nations including in the South American continent's nation of Brazil where a King currently lives ruling the Bloodies in peace.
I also published online smashwords this story called "My Life as a Vampire" which is for $0.99 and is another version of "Mara's Story." This time this story focuses onto a female named Beth told in first person told that she's a vampire by her brother Janick blaring at her. She gets thrust a library book by her brother and reads it on the advice of the housekeeper of the island nation their currently living in. The book Beth learns is written by her Mother using a pen name to describe her life as a vampire and later getting paired to a male as her mate.
Anyway I have to make up my mind on what to do with the stories of Guardian and Tom the Berserker. I have to figure out if I should publish them both online smashwords either for free or for ninety nine cents in U.S. money terms. I would have to read either story and make sure of what theme they'll have to have. I keep thinking of ideas for improving either stories. Such as making the Guardian story longer by giving a theme involving this male character to have a female as his mate he keep on seeking while having purpose in life living in Egyptia. I also have to figure out what theme I should use for my Tom character. I figured I could use the theme of acceptance but I'm not entirely sure of what kind of theme I should focus into. Either the theme of finding acceptance from a female to be paired as his (Tom's) or something else. Oh well. I guess I'll have to wait and see what I can think of later.
