Hello! This is Ann Hirshberg again, one of the writers who will be featured in Brock Eastman’s Galactic Exploration Collection. In case you didn’t read my previous post on his blog, I had written about some of the challenges that I have needed toovercome in the writing process for my portion of the collection.
Now, I would like to give you a sneak-peek of some aspects of the story itself. My novella that I have written is entitled Saving Jangolin. It centers on Ky, an inquisitive, clever street urchin who has lived on the planet Jangolin his entire life. Through an unexpected turn of events, he meets with Rowena, the young, newly crowned queen of the planet. Together, the unlikely pair must work to solve a mystery that could affect Jangolin’s future greatly, and Ky is launched on an adventure like nothing he has ever experienced.
During their quest, Ky and Rowena discover a few allies, as well as, despite their extremely contrasting backgrounds, develop a close bond of friendship. They must each learn to cope with loss and defend others from danger.
One thing I really enjoyed while creating this story was playing with the characters’ personalities. For example, Rowena is quite adventurous and daring in spite of her royal upbringing, and another important character always ends up asking a lot of questions, due to his curiosity and skepticism.
I am very excited to be sharing my novella with the world. I hope to give my readers a great experience while reading it!
