It feels so odd to be back here all these years later; I used to be an active member of the AQ forum back in 2010 when I was 17 years old. Well, add almost ten years to that along with a very long period during which I was not writing at all and I'm at back it for what it's worth. It feels exactly as hectic as it felt back then so I guess stress doesn't lessen with age, only gets amplified.
To get to the point, I've completely re-written the book I was working on 10 years ago with a completely different approach, now aiming to adult audiences. I look forward to hearing your feedback on my attempt on writing a query letter all these years later (hopefully I'm not terribly rusty at it.)
Anelaigh is a Demon. That fact alone is enough to keep her life interesting but being the only Demon to ever be created from Lucifer himself has caused her to spend the last centuries in hiding; Anelaigh has no desire to cater to her father’s devious whims and would much rather focus on her own, the most entertaining of them being toying with the fragile human psyche.
When one of the Devil’s most treasured generals Hades, tracks her down and demands a meeting, Anelaigh knows nothing good will come out of it. Looking to put an end in his millennia old quarrel with his archangel brother Michael, Lucifer is now set on completing a most difficult task; killing Michael’s only son and heir to the throne, David. And the Devil does not take no for an answer.
As if infiltrating David’s closed circle as his guard isn’t already challenging enough, Anelaigh must seduce a man she can’t even touch, not without shifting into her true nature and ending up getting herself killed that is. She must now decide wether she’ll bow down to her father’s demands or end their cat and mouse game on her own terms.
With the clock now ticking closer to her end, Anelaigh must face the possibility that her evil nature might not be all consuming after all and that even one as cruel as she might be capable of all those fragile emotions she has spent her long life mocking.
Demon is paranormal romance novel complete at 74K words that would appeal to adult audiences such as of J.R Ward and her Black Dagger Brotherhood series . It focuses heavily on the complexity of human nature and vices as people commonly perceive them, challenging what perversion really is. It is written with the intent of a sequel and could possibly turn into a series.
Thank you for your consideration.
