Memories of What Never Was (First Draft in progress)

Beyond the Lost Horizon is the first novel length story I finished that I felt was any good.  Unfortunately, the publishing companies I tried to sell it to thought otherwise, telling me that it was too generic. 

I really like the characters and the world, but I felt that they deserved a better story, so a couple of years ago I started a complete rewrite from scratch.  I got sidetracked by I Am Nobody when NaNo came around, and worked on that to its completion, and then got swamped with my day job for a good year or two also so i had no time to write. 

Over that time the story has always been in the back of my mind, evolving, and changing, and growing into something new and, I hope, much better than it would have been had I just finished the rewrite back then.  It was my intention to write a stand-alone novel, a complete story in one book.  however, as I started plotting out my second complete rewrite of this book, I realized that it was just too long to do that.  So I changed a few things around, found some good breaking points, and split the outline into a trilogy.

Now that I've got everything I want to do with this story plotted out and outlined, I'm finally getting back to writing it.  I think this will probably be my most ambitious project yet, and I feel that I've progressed as a writer over the last few years to the point where I can actually pull it off well.

Originally the book was called Beyond the Lost Horizon.  I changed it to The Eternal Chain, when I began rewriting it.  And when I split it, the series name became The Eternal Chain, and the first book is now called Memories of what Never Was.

Seven years ago The Seven, servants of the goddess that supposedly created the world, tried to murder the heirs of seven great sages who sealed the Fey race away in the Neverworld after the Infinity War thousands of years ago.  Raven, brother to one of the murdered Heirs rushed to see if he could save the others when he failed to save his older sister, and managed to save only one, Kriss, who was abused as a child so terribly that she is now incapable of feeling emotion.  They set out on a quest to hunt down the Seven and destroy the Orders of Magic throughout the world who support them, and to find Brand, the only other person beside the Heirs that they also tried to kill on that night.

I'll be posting chapters of the first draft of the new rewrite as I complete them, and you can download them at the bottom of this page.  As always, all materials on this website are protected under copyright, stealing them from me will result in my hunting you down, covering you with honey, and throwing you to an army of angry, radioactive bees from hell.
 
Thank you for reading
