If you’ve been following this site for a while, you may be wondering “Where in the world is Avarice Touched?” If you are brand new, Avarice Touched is the fantasy novel I am creating with my cousin, LeTeisha Newton. It is the tale of two very different women and their power and powerlessness in the kingdom of The Closing Fist.
So what’s the hold up? Well we got about 66,000 words (around 200 pages) in before we realized that one of our main story hinges was based on something that no longer made sense because of other changes. So we did the only thing you can do in that situation: we brainstormed!
The new and reworked world is deeper, more grounded and much more unique than the old one and we’re both so excited about the new aspects of the story that arose from this seemingly disastrous circumstance. Unfortunately, all 200 pages have to be rewritten, and there are at least 300 more pages to go. So yeah, there’s going to be a bit more of a delay.
Thanks for your patience! In the meantime please feel free to help support us as we work towards this endeavor.
