I have always dreamed of becoming a writer, and publishing my own book in that matter. There were stories I have only woven in my mind, untold and never written; afraid to transcribe it on paper. But dreams will only be dreams if you will not put it into action…finding that spark of inspiration and taking that magical first step.
Today, I can say that I have somehow reached that dream.
I have published my first book and it’s all because of CreateSpace and the blogging communities.
My first book, Griffin’s Love: Mated for Life, is a story about star-crossed lovers, though separated by centuries, their love for each other was so pure that it transcends time.
Some parts of the story were set during the Medieval Period, specifically, during the Viking Age. Thus, you will learn facts about the life of the Vikings during those period from their sod houses to their famous longships. Reading the story will somehow give you a front-seat view of a life from the past. Given that knowledge, you will appreciate even more the safety and comfort today’s life brings.
I am also happy to note that the story was inspired by the British Museum’s Viking Exhibition. The said exhibition opens last March 8, which is the time and place of the first and the last chapter of the book. As a self-professed history lover, I can say that the Vikings were one of the most influential people during the Dark Ages. One of them was Ubbe Ragnarsson.
Ubbe Ragnarsson, the son of Ragnar Lothbrok, was a Viking Chieftain loved by his people but feared by his enemies. He conquered hundreds of lands, giving glory and honor to the Norsemen. But just like any heroes, this hero was doomed to fall at the Battle of Cynwit. And Alex, an ordinary woman of the 21st Century, has been chosen by the gods to accomplish an enchanted undertaking. She had not only accomplished her task, but she had conquered the Viking warlord’s heart as well.
This story will make you believe in the power of true love, all over again.
