Hello, lovely readers! Today, I am so thrilled to bring back to light my plans for a Puerto Rico-based, superhero, sci-fi fantasy, dystopian book/series. I originally called it "PuertoRican Hearts", but the other day I was playing around with the outline(s) I have and I've decided the series title doesn't go well with the storyline. So, I'm rebranding. I know the covers are floating around someone on the web, but they are no longer relevant.
CW's The 100 & The Tomorrow People meets Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
What will the new series name be?
I don't have titles for the book(s) right now. I am still considering whether the current one(s) will work with the new series title and the current outline. Because it could work, but my outline is changing from where it starting, back in 2019.
The biggest reveal I've given and will share again is this: It all takes place within Puerto Rico. Locations are used fictitiously. Events are, perhaps, dramatized. But it all will take place here (my homeworld).
I am not planning to include any Spanish dialogue, apart from minor phrases, because it's all told from the MC's POV and as someone who is bilingual, I use my thought process as a guide for how the character perceives speaking with her peers. Because if I were in another country where I don't speak/understand the language, I won't have my auto-translation in my brain helping. That's how I view my writing. If the main character does not speak the language, neither will the reader. I believe this is a section of the term, "Show, don't tell."
Not everyone enjoys the style storyline I am aiming for, but I know my audience is out there.
I guess that's all for now. Be on the look out for more posts. I'm getting back in the swing of things and hope to share more soon!
