Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog post! This site was created as a way to help keep me motivated as I finished up my first novel. Currently, she sits at just over 80K words, which is insane as I have never written that much ever. I still have a ways to go but as a whole I am very pleased with the progress I have made.
The story centers around Corinna, a young woman who lives in the fabled city of Atlantis.
To the rest of the world, the city never existed, an ancient myth passed down for generations. To Corinna, it is home- a city crafted by the Gods, hidden underneath the sea away from prying eyes. Her destiny is to follow in the footsteps of her father, leading her district and the people that live there- a life Corinna finds terribly boring.
When Corinna is told that she must marry in order to inherit her fathers title, she is stunned. When that man turns out to be the nephew to the King- next in line to the throne- she is even more surprised. What follows is a courtship between her and the charming, handsome heir to the throne, and Corinna begins to think that maybe a life with him could be content. That is, until a series of events transpires that pushes Corinna out of the safety of her city and into the net of a pirate ship. One whose captain has been incessantly searching for the lost city, and the riches that are sure to follow.
A prisoner on the ship, Corinna must use her wits to escape, and keep her city safe from the ruthless captain that seeks to destroy it. It won't be easy. There is danger around every corner. From pirate attacks, to shipwrecks, to seamonsters, and a certain dashing young pirate that makes her question everything, she will struggle to survive.
