I'm the kind of writer who writes out of order, or "out of sequence". When I start writing I usually have a pretty good idea of what the story is going to be about and a general outline. Then, I let my imagination take me where it will, and I write whatever parts of the story happen to come into my mind. Later, I begin to piece the story together by going back and filling in the gaps between all the parts I have written.

What follows are all the parts I have written so far for my book, Brother of the Prophet, and I am currently working on filling in all the gaps.

The basic story line premise is this: B'alam Agab is born into the perilous life of 15th century Guatemala, on the Mayan island city of, Tah Itzá, The Place of the Itzá. He is the brother of the last and greatest Mayan prophet, Chilam B'alam, who tries to warn his people against the coming of the Spaniards. Resentful of his influence over the people and infuriated after he publicly rebukes them for their evil and corrupt ways, the high priests devise a plot to have Chilam B'alam killed. After the betrayal and murder of his brother at the hands of the high priests, B'alam Agab is unwillingly swept down a dark and dangerous path through pain, despair, heresy, and forbidden love. In time, when his brother's prophecies are proven true with the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores, and the outside world begins to crash down around them, leaving Tah Itzá as the last unconquered Mayan stronghold, will B'alam Agab be able to forgive those responsible for his brother's death, take up his brother's mantle, and find a way to save and protect his people against the foreigners?

To cut down on confusion, at the beginning of each part I have tried to provide a little background information to explain what exactly is going on at that particular point in the story.

Any comments, constructive criticism, feedback, ideas, or suggestions are very much welcome and appreciated.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy it :)
