For more than ten years, I have wanted to tell the story of Lance Eliot, an ordinary man swept up in extraordinary adventures. I envision his tale as a three-part fantasy saga, beginning with a novel titled The Trials of Lance Eliot.
My attempts to write the Lance Eliot saga are practically a story of their own. Over the years, I wrote several drafts of The Trials of Lance Eliot, published one, watched it crash and burn, abandoned the entire project, and resurrected it years later. Having finished this personal blog, I intend to rewrite The Trials of Lance Eliot from scratch, and eventually to write its two sequels.
If anyone is interested in reading the old, published version of The Trials of Lance Eliot, the novel remains available as a paperback, and also as an e-book for Nook and Kindle devices! At this point, I consider it a prototype of the story I really want to tell.
My current effort shall be my final attempt to write the Lance Eliot saga. I hope to finish Lance’s story. I may not. Either way, it’ll be one heck of a ride!
If you’re interested in following the development of the Lance Eliot saga, you can follow me on Twitter, where I’ll share any news or announcements. In the meantime, here are some blog posts exploring early concepts for Lance Eliot’s story:
- Introduction to the Project
- The Premise
- The Characters
- The Lore
- The Politics
- The Themes
- The Point of View
Please note that the Lance Eliot saga remains in early development, and I work on it merely as a hobby, so I won’t finish it anytime soon… if I succeed in finishing it at all. I will certainly try!
After all these years, I’m excited to make one last effort to write the Lance Eliot saga, and you’re welcome to come along. Thanks for reading!
