I have this lovely little town called Swan Valley, where my characters live and experience life, basically. Just your average, ordinary people--with the odd little twist and turn, and perhaps some unaverage things as well.
Built in a valley by a large lake inhabited by Swans, Swan Valley is a rapidly growing town filled with many people with many different stories. Though it started small, as neighbouring Swim City slowly deteriorated, younger adults wanting a different life and elders wanting a slower, quieter town moved to Swan Valley, bringing with them small businesses, shops, and a huge population boom.
Finding himself the second Mayor of the town during these hectic years, Henry Swan strives to keep Swan Valley as homey as possible and is moderately successful. When Swim Fever destroyed Swim City, he offered refuge for those displaced, and continues to help Swim City cleanup and repair after the disease that mirrored a plague and killed many of the citizens of Swim City.
Everyone who came to Swan Valley has a story. And everyone there is more than willing to tell their stories...
Remnants, the first story of the Valley, focus on ten year old Claire Aerovl. She grew up with her mom in Swim City. Then, when she was eight, her mother died of the Fever epidemic that hit the city. After two years living with her ruthless, promiscuous father, young Claire is snatched away from the wretched life she leads and sent to live with her Great aunt and uncle, soon to be her adoptive parents. Facing challenges like no other, Claire finally attempts to achieve a peaceful life. But when secrets are revealed and her peaceful life interrupted, Her cousin, soon-to-be sister Dannica and good friend Duncan help Claire to overcome her fears, and pick up the Remnants of her life to start fresh.
After Remnants comes The Magic of Storms, which is out on dA right now. (I meant to post it this winter, but totally forgot. So you'll all get a lovely Christmas story this year!). It comes almost directly after Remnants, give or take about a month-ish. In this little story, Swan Valley is rocked on Christmas Eve by a huge snowstorm. Both the McCabe's (who have an unexpected house guest that night) and the Swan's are worrying about their eldest kids--and as it happens, Derrick Swan and Danica McCabe are stranded out in the snow. Together. How will they contact their families, and how on Earth will they wait out the storm safely?
Afterwards, Twelve Roses, which takes place a few years after the snowstorm, is next to be read, followed by Red Stilettos-the night Dannica and Derrick first met back in High School.
I have Danica's story planned-Helplessly. It introduces the main family of the series, and goes in-depth to reasons why the McCabe's live on the secluded little piece of land that's not exactly attached to Swan Valley but is still Swan Valley. His family founded the town. Her family came to the town, in dept and wanted by the many people her father had betrayed. But Dannica can’t help but find herself helplessly in love with Derrick Swan. Despite the fact that Derrick Swan was a flirt, a charmer, and too obnoxious for Dannica to handle, she can’t help but like Derrick Swan, as much as she hates to admit it. He has a whole different person buried underneath, as she begins to learn. And with the recent threats that keep coming to haunt her family, Dannica needs to be closer than ever to the able bodied, well connected Constable Swan, least the worst actually happen...
Third Story will be about Derrick's twin sister (younger by a few minutes), Lizette, and new resident Julian Pointe-Clare. Called Dreamers, the story follows the drastic change of events for each person, until they meet one day...and I don't wanna spoil it, but here's a synopsis. Always overshadowed by her twin brother, Lizette Swan has finally moved out of the family home and begun her own life. A chance meeting with the sexy Julian Pointe-Clare turns Lizette's plans upside down, especially when she tries to delve into the tragic events that brought him to Swan Valley...
The Watch was a spur of the moment story I wrote while thinking of my Vovo, who passed away (nearly five years ago) June 7th, 2011. It's totally different from the people of Swan Valley, and I poured a lot of emotion into that piece. Give it a try, it's really sentimental to me :)
AND, the moment we've all been scrolling down for...THE STORIES BOX!
For now, ADIEU!
