Supernatural Chronicles: THE NOIR Synopsis:
New Orleans has been alive with paranormal activity for the last few months. Creatures of the night are coming in and out of the ancient city, searching the world for relics in a mad attempt to close a tear in the veil between worlds they were told only they could repair.
However, they were misled.
On the other side of that veil, dwelling amongst the damned souls of Hell, are the Noir, a brutal race that feeds off the sins of the world, ripping apart those damned for eternity in their need for life and survival.
Ruled by the master of Hell, their task has been laid out for them, and they have other plans for the sacred relics.
Hello Everyone! I am Rebecca Ethington, the author of the final book in The Supernatural Chronicles: New Orleans. I enjoyed writing The Noir so much, and I hope you guys enjoy reading it, as well as all of the other wonderful stories that make up this epic story!
One of the questions we have all been getting quite a lot is if we all had fun writing all of these different supernatural characters? And if it was hard coming up with different ways to make them unique?
The short answer is YES!
So much yes, hence the caps lock. I know we all had a blast writing such wonderfully different characters and taking familiar tropes and turning them into our own.
It was fun for me, as the caboose of the project, to watch everything blossom and grow into the amazing collaborative work that it was. But what was more, it was fun for me to wrap everything up and create a broad story ARC that could take these characters into our next adventure.
And for me, that involved something different than what everyone else was instructed to do.
I had to create a whole new race of supernatural creatures.
And, like every other author I know, I loved every minute of it.
I love creating something from the depths of nothing, I love pulling bits of information and creativity out of my imagination and moulding and shaping it into something extraordinary. There is something spectacular about the power of your imagination to do that.
Now, I have done this with every other of my stories as I kind of have a thing against tropes, so the process of creating something new is not new to me.
However, this process was different than any other creature I have created before, because I had a book cover.
I had a book cover, with a hauntingly beautiful girl that I knew at once was one of The Noir, but what would a beautiful girl be doing in hell?
That was the question I had to find the answer to – and not only for her, but for all of the supernatural chronicles.
I know many aspiring writers struggle with questions like this every day, and if I had one piece of advice to anyone creating something amazing out there – it’s this: Don’t Hold Back.
Don’t be scared of the places your imagination takes you. Don’t be worried about what people will think, or nervous about what they will say.
Just let it flow, and let your imagination take control, and I can guarantee you – that amazing things will happen.
