Here you will find what is going on in Meleena’s world.
Meleena is the main character in my fantasy world centered in the town of Bug Flat. Bug flat sprawls at the foot of Sivrisinek Castle, nestled in a crook of the Otraph River.
Meleena is a brat. A thief by trade, she can be kind one moment, but has no qualms dispatching a rival the next. 23 years old, she has slept with half the men in town, but the thought of donning a dress makes her nauseous. She is more comfortable with armor and her trusty Elven sword.
There is something special about her. Though she has brown eyes, her pupils are silver. There is nobody else with eyes like that. She also has a secret that few people except her best friend, the half man half bug Chit Chit knows. She can read, write and speak any language (that she can physically pronounce). She has been able to do that since she was a baby. Though she did not comprehend all of the words, she automatically understood them as if they were her native tongue. Her aunt Leena warned her that her unusual talent could be dangerous and Meleena took that to heart.
I’ve introduced Meleena to the world in a short story called Don’t Mess With A Snorg. It was published in the anthology A World Of Their Own by Nightfall Publications in 2010. The cover is shown below:
It is available at Amazon at the following link: http://www.amazon.com/World-Their-Own-Multiple-Authors/dp/193405156X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1306296579&sr=8-1
In Don’t Mess With A Snorg, Meleena shows what a brat she really is when, as a young girl, she almost starts a war between Bug Flat and a local clan of half pig, half gorilla creatures called Snorgs. I wrote the story under the pseudonym Ray Brooks. However, after long discussions with fellow authors and friends including Morgan St. James, I’ve come to the conclusion that I should just use my real name on everything. For the upcoming novel and any future writings I will use my real name.
My first legacy published novel called Meleena’s Adventures – Treasure Of The Umbrunna follows Meleena as she goes after a valuable pearl in an underground city but has to decide whether to give it up to help someone else. It is scheduled for publication by Cyberwzard Publications under their Ancient Tomes Press sometime in the future.
I am currently hard at work on the sequel, Meleena’s Adventures – Gods Of The Blue Mountains. I’m having a lot of fun with it!
