Reporting a major plot alteration made within Horned Winged Blessed.
As many of you know, my latest novel is in editing and will soon be ready for publication on Amazon in preparation for the launch.
However, after several discussions with my beta readers and main editor, the meanings behind what Horned Winged and Blessed actually stand for is being revealed much earlier in the book than previously scheduled.
I was planning to have it written subtly within the pages of the novel, so that readers could put the pieces together as and when they were able. (And don’t worry, there are still plenty of other aspects in the book that readers will be able to do exactly that with!)
But as this is something as crucial as what the title of the book actually means, I’ve altered it to now reveal this vital information within the first chapter instead.
In a post-world war III, dystopian future my next novel is set in what is portrayed (at first) as a utopia. A new Wiccan government is in power and is doing what they can to revive Broken Britain after the war.
One of their main new laws is the introduction of the new words given to the three genders:
Men are now called Horned ones.
Women are now called Winged ones.
Anyone other than that are called Blessed ones.
Some of you will see the issue there already.
If you don’t, then make sure to grab a copy of Horned Winged Blessed as soon as it’s out!
