IT'S OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, my, gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



What on this earth took me so long to CHECK?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!

*Jumping, dancing, screaming, singing, leaping, laughing... et cetera (which means 'and the remaining things' in Latin, by the way)*

Inkdeath is out. Inkdeath is out. INKDEATH IS OUT.

I've got to put that book on hold... I've been waiting so, so long for it... I just can't believe it. I knew it was coming out some time around now, but I didn't realize it ALREADY WAS! Me oh my oh gosh...

On another topic, I'm typing K.o.D. again (yes, I took a break... I just wasn't sure what to do after the Nymphs, but now I think I'm going to bring in some boats! That should be fun, hehe)... and I'm super excited! Seeing that Inkdeath is out(!!!!!!!!!!) is really inspiring me to right more, for some strange reason. I intend to read Ms. Funke's book, and hopefully find some inspiration for my own book...

It's strange, because Kings of Darkness is ending up being an original story, but it has these... elements from books I've read and loved... The Villain, King Ronan, seems to remind me of Capricorn (the villain from Inkheart, one of the predecessors to Inkdeath), the feel of the book (though definitely different) makes me think of Alagaseia(sp?) from the Inheritance series. The Ma'Ge, mysterious, old and warm makes me think of Dumbledore, from Harry Potter, and other little things remind me of other books... Certainly, my book isn't a copy of anything, it's just got some cool elements from other stories. It's neat to see that what I've read affects what I write...
And, I thought I'd let you know, I've dropped the whole idea of my book having 200 pages. It could easily end up being that amount, it's not like I have too much story, it's just that that doesn't seem like enough... enough to make you love May, Fredric, Darren and Gloria... enough to make you care about Glorsifil, and the Rebels' fight for freedom, enough to make you hate Ronan with an amazing fire, and enough to get you hooked enough to buy the next book.

ANYWAYS, it's coming along great and I can't wait to finish it!

And I can't wait to read Inkdeath!
