Plot of Gold Competition – Did I Win?


In October, I took part in the Plot of Gold Competition hosted by Pro Writing Aid and BeemGee. For 30 days, I had use of the premium version of the BeemGee app and had to plan a new novel (I planned an entire series). At the end of the 30 days, I had to turn in my outline (which I did). So did I win?

Author Spotlight – Crisis (An Empire of the Elves): A #SciFi Novel by David T Applegate

Welcome to this week’s Friday Author Spotlight! This week I have David T Applegate visiting with a science fiction novel in his An Empire of the Elves series, Crisis. He’ll be sharing an excerpt with us from his book, but first…

David Applegate is an Australian and based in Brisbane, Queensland. From early childhood, David had dreamt about Elves, space travel, and magic. Having placed those dreams on hold to focus on family and career, now he can concentrate on writing.

About the Book

The Elven Empire has been ruled by the Thirteen Great Elven Houses since fleeing their home world. The richest and most powerful of which is House Hashimoto.

The Great Exodus started thousands of years ago, and is nearing competition. In that time the empire has grown and flourished, but now the empire is in crisis.

Pirates are attacking the Last Exodus fleet. They are after an ancient artifact and will kill anyone who gets in their way.

Keep reading for an excerpt:

In the dark, three figures wove their way through the hawthorn bushes around a round white marble pool. They were Blood-Witches, masters of the healing arts and magic. Their uniform was a black double-breasted tunic, with red trim and a high Asian collar, with a black pleated skirt with red trim. On the left sleeve of the tunic was the symbol of the Empire, a black round patch with a gold rope edge and the seven stars of the Pleiades inside, and on the right sleeve was a white kite shield patch with a red Rod of Asclepius inside.

Each had a wide red patent leather belt, which had a mobile phone clipped on. Each wore red pantyhose and black knee-high boots. Each Witch had an ankle length black robe with red trim and a large hood with red cord. The robe had had the red Rod of Asclepius on the back.

Each Witch had the hood over her head, with her face concealed by a red medical mask. The Blood-Witch in the lead carried a staff and a medical bag, the second was pregnant, and the third carried a small basket that contained a blue wrap.

They stopped in front of a pool at a quarter-circle marble bench seat. At the back of the pond stood a marble statue of a Flower Elf maiden, holding a vase that poured water into the pool, with the overflow and filter at its feet.
