I love dark, urban fantasy, if that is even the right world for it. Magic and mystery just out of reach of the average person is fun and in some ways reflects the genuine nature of the world. While I don’t believe dragons and wizards roam the shadows, but most of life operates in various subcultures just out of the view of the average person on the street.
This is the hardest thing for me to lock down. My goal is to craft something between dark fantasy, urban fantasy, and supernatural romance. The world is inspired by book series like The Vampire Chronicles, The Sookie Stackhouse books, The Dresden Files, and Harry Potter, shows like The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Vampire Diaries, and so many others of this type. None of these are an analogue for the work that I am doing, and they aren’t exactly comp titles, but if there is a genre that contains them all, then that genre is the one.
While I have a lot of ideas for the world and need to discuss some aspects of world history to establish the setting, the vast majority of the stories will take place in Blackwood County, Avalon which is situated in Maryland in the USA and its counterpart region in the Otherworld.
