This year, along with my other #WRITEboyslove peeps on twitter, I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo.
What’s that, I hear you ask?
Well, to put it plainly, authors all around the world try and madly complete 50k in a month (1500 words a day) in a National Novel Writing Month “competition” known affectionately as NaNoWriMo or NaNo! It’s more a competition with one’s self though, as it encourages writing disciple…so they tell me.
For my story I’m going to start my ‘Omegaverse’ duology (30k each). So plenty of words there to reach the goal, right?
The stories will be:
Warmth from the Rising Sun
Cold from the Waxing Moon
And here’s the blurb thing I’ve sort of planted down for the first book:
On the picturesque but remote Jussei Island, there’s an ancient and sacred temple known as Dansei Karuto—the Cult of Men. Every year, the temple masters select boys of age from the local village to join them. Not only is it the highest honour to be chosen, it’ll mean a rich and full life for the boys who are.
But only a handful are ever selected.
Shoju so happens to be one of the lucky few. After being accepted, he’s quickly initiated into the Cult of Men so he can be worshipped and have his every desire attended to, no matter how small. He’s basically treated like a living god. All Shoju has to do in return is make himself available to the masters of the shrine for all manner of erotic delights.
Delights Shoju is willing to provide in thanks for his selection.
But all too soon, the waking dream filled with carnal delights, both wondrous and sensual, becomes a nightmare for Shoju. He realises the temple is a prison, even if a gilded one. And what’s more, he discovers the masters have their own nefarious agenda for the boys they’ve selected—an agenda that could cost Shoju more than he ever imagined.
Will he be able to escape the temple in time? Or will Shoju, so caught up in the web of deceit under the guise of worship, became the temple’s next victim?
So let’s see how it all goes.
We’re going to encourage each other and be supportive! I hope you can join us. My NaNo profile is HERE if you want to add me as your buddy!
