Naughty me! I said it would be Monday, but thought that a couple more days would prove useful!
Saturday was my day for ‘Sayeh and Zia’ posts. Surprisingly, I felt empty for a couple of days after posting the Epilogue… as if mourning the end of something you’ve been invested in for so long.
There’s only one way to move on… Start a new story! And figure out how to use these polls that WordPress allows you to embed in your posts.
So, now I have a small idea of how the polls work, and it’s your chance to
change history decide what happens next! Below are quick blurbs for each story (in alphabetical order, not preference order):
BATTLE OF THE BOOZE (Random Fun!)
Ever wondered what would happen if Ninjas, Celtic Warriors, Caribbean Pirates and Cossacks warred?
Four land masses are feeling the strain of their bulging populations. The most lucrative trade is in alcohol, with each tribe respectively controlling the supplies of Saké, Potcheen, Rum and Vodka. When a modest island appears as if from nowhere, and with amazingly fertile fields, the race is on to secure the land. Who will be victorious? Will they all lose? Can they all just get along?
DIVORCE FORCE (Science Fiction)
In the near future, the government is able to forcibly divorce you. After a visit from the government-sanctioned assessor, the happily married Charles and Lori are informed they must divorce. To resist the government’s conclusion is a criminal offence.
Would you break the law for love? Might the government be right, though the pair do not know it yet?
FALL OF XUYANA (Historical Fiction)
Around 900 AD, three Mesoamerican cities are vying to dominate the Mayan landscape. The city of Baoc, under attack from the ascending city of Chitzache, has aligned with the powerful Xuyana in return for protection. The source of Xuyana’s power is the ‘favour of the Gods’, which is rumoured to be a physical object held the city’s High Priest.
The title gives away what happens. How does Xuyana fall? What happens when it does?
TRUE LOVE’S LAST KISS (Fantasy)
Grace is a travelling mercenary for hire. As she passes through a town, there is a recruitment drive for people with her skills to enter nearby forbidden lands. The local legend speaks of the town’s best land being overrun by a great evil, one that the townsfolk have been unable to defeat for many generations.
Does the recruiter/team leader know more than they are sharing, and *cue Tina Turner* what’s love got to do with it?

What say you, fine readers? Where do we go from here? The result’s first entry will be posted next Saturday!
Thanking you in anticipation of your participation =)
