Those who know me know that I like complicated stories. I like them in movies and books that I read, so it makes sense that the stories I write will have more than one twist and turn. Generations, which is a brand new name, began as Bloodties. As both titles hint, this is a story that centers family – in fact a few families. I do not wish to reveal plot lines, but I do wish to preface the first episode.
I usually refer to this story as ‘my vampire story’, but that would be far too simple for my own taste. The reason I am writing this story in episodic format is purely selfish. I don’t want to simplify my story. You see, most novels have one, maybe two, main characters. The story is propelled by one or both of these characters. In the world I envision for Generations, events are influenced by a group of people, not just the main characters. The world I envision is much like our own – with the addition of four other ‘races’ of people. Vampires are one of these races, yet they are not the top of the food chain.
I suppose this is my attempt at a teaser, I am not a subtle person, so this is probably a poor attempt. But if by chance your curiosity is piqued, keep an eye out for the category Generations… the first episode will be up soon.
