Hi there, I’ve been here before. My name is Jeyna and I’m an indie author.
During the day, I copy-write in a digital advertising agency. Prior to this move, I spent 4 years in a publishing house as both a writer and editor for children magazines, books, and pre-school materials - working with big names while trying to establish my own. This is me stepping up my game in my authoring career on Inkshares.
My previous project, The Battle for Oz, successful funded in January 2015. It took a lot of hustling to get the book published. A year later, I returned with this very project - submitting it for the Sword & Laser Collection contest. Unfortunately it didn’t make the top 3. However, I didn’t stop there. I entered the book in the Geek & Sundry Fantasy contest and the rest is history.
The Slave Prince is a book I’ve been working on since 2013. I finished the first draft in January 2013 and have been editing it for 3 years while writing other books. I’ve held it back because I wasn’t sure on what to do with it. Experiencing Inkshares once, I thought The Slave Prince deserves a chance here.
Now unlike The Battle for Oz, where the characters were kept and thrown into a new plot and modified worlds, The Slave Prince keeps the backbone of the original tale with new characters in a new universe. The adventure is different too, with the added touch of magic. Who doesn’t like magic?
If you have no idea what story this book is based on, then great! It would be like a new read for you. But if you do, I’m asking you to give it a chance. Who knows, maybe you’ll like it? At least, I’m hoping you would.
The Slave Prince was part of the Geek & Sundry Fantasy Contest. The contest ran from August 1 to November 1, 2016. At the end of the contest, The Slave Prince placed the top 3 books. A big thank you to all who supported the book. You guys are amazing!
