Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Today, I’m bringing you a Authortube Worldbuilding tag. This is the second one that’s gone up on my channel but I was tagged by Shamon Watson this time and I will be doing it more or less about about Elohim Universe but for the occasional question where it goes a little deeper with the main character. I will be talking about On Fallen Wings instead. So, let’s get into the questions then.

1. Briefly describe your story premise and the world in which it takes place.

The brief premise for my universe is what happens when a race of beings calmed the Elohim were betrayed by one of their own and the basic premise for unfallen wings is what happens when this Elohim in hiding is discovered and she’s forced to face her long time enemy.

2. Are there any wars or conflict affecting your character’s life?

So, in my universe, there’s but a handful of wars, not counting the ones in history and that includes the celestial war basically a civil war in the celestial plain that tore apart the messengers and caused half of them to be cast into the mortal plain. The second war that happens that’s really big is the unwon war and this is basically world war 3 and that is the one that is on the map behind me. This is what it’s called since nobody actually wins because human civilization almost wipes itself out with nukes which is actually where revival takes place. The last big war that’s really known in my universe right now is the war of revelations and this is basically what cuts off the unwon war and what starts into the second celestial war except this celestial war is now split between the mortal plain and the celestial plain and its basically the war of revelations and the apocalypse and it’s a struggle to keep the mortal plain from basically being wiped clean. So, there’s a few wars that do happen and they’re kind of cataclysmic when they do happen and it affects literally everybody.

3. Tell us a little about your main character’s family and/or culture.

So, for this one, I’m actually going to talk about the celestial plain and it’s clan structures from Elohim and the messengers. There are three different types of clans and that is the spirit clan, the mechanist clan and the beast clan and these clans basically maintain Elohim and messengers who excel in these certain areas such as the spirit clan who would be better at doing sole arts and manipulating time than the mechanist clan would be and the mechanist clan would probably be better at putting together rituals and improving the ones that already exist. And basically, that’s how the hierarchy is structured in the celestial plain and this is because they’re not really related by blood, any of them, because it’s not really physical recreation that happens so, it’s very clan structured but not really bloodline related.

4. What dangers does your main character face or what does your main character fear?

So, that’s pretty easy because Larathel, my main character, fears basically being destroyed and wiped from all of existence by Yaida and that’s basically what she’s trying to avoid all throughout her entire existence almost.

5. Are there holidays in your world that don’t exist in the real world? How are they celebrated? What is your character’s favorite holiday or thing to do during the holidays?

So, in the celestial plain, there isn’t really holidays per se and that’s because time isn’t really a static concept for them, it’s kind of wibbly-wobbly to say the least since they are inside the flow of time itself but when Larathel is on the mortal plain, in the mortal vessel, then she really enjoys all holidays because she doesn’t get to experience many of them.

6. Back in the day, how does your main character’s generation differ from their parents or their grandparents?

In terms of the messengers though, there are different generations of them because there are those who remain before the betrayal such as Lisfa, Pymon, Asma, really all the old fallen messengers and the ones who are in the upper levels of the generals of Yaid’s army. And there’s also those who remained after the great betrayal and that is basically the zealot like warriors that Yaida creates for the revelations war and then, there’s also the few that Larathel has to create using humans who volunteer and that’s because she can’t actually make a celestial vessel from scratch in the mortal plain. So, these are sort of different in the sense that they are created in the same way that the original celestial messengers were created.

7. How do people get around in this world?

So, the Elohim the messengers mostly get around by trans-dimensional doorways that are opened using phrases and signals that they trace in the air or on physical structures.

8. What do people eat in your world and what is your character’s favorite food?

The Elohim don’t eat at all because they don’t have stomachs and they’re not really living physical things, they’re weird but the messengers do have small stomachs for processing liquids and basic ritual binding agents. When those in the mortal plain are cursed by Yaida, they are actually forced to sustain themselves on blood so, that would probably be what they eat for the most part.

9. What games/fun things does your character do as a small child?

So, since Larathel and Pymon travel around a lot in unfallen wings when Larathel is younger, she’s often studying piano and really reading and keeping to herself for the most part because she doesn’t have a lot of friends that she has to play with so she kinda entertains herself with books and learning really anything she can get her hands on.

10. What do people in general do for fun in your world?

So, most of the Elohim enjoy creating life in general so, that’s often what they’ll be doing for fun, it’s just creating and experimenting and giving life to the universe.

11. What’s the song that’s well known in your world?

There’s not really a whole of songs that are well known in the celestial plain, but Larathel really likes For Elise, I probably said that wrong by Beethoven and that’s just kind of something she gravitated towards. She doesn’t really listen to a lot of pop culture so, it’s kind of hard to pin point the specific song that’s really popular because there’s not a single one that’s really popular.

12. Are there any pop culture references?

So, throughout other stories, there’s a lot of pop culture references throughout different time periods and really where that sat but in unfallen wings, there’s not a whole lot of pops culture because it’s mostly in urban fantasy and it takes place outside the realm of the norm. So, they’re not really in the know with the pop culture to say the least.

13. What language does your main character speak? What slang, expression, etc are common in their culture?

So, Larathel really speaks a wide variety of languages not just in her celestial form but also in her mortal form. Since her and Pymon travel around so much when she was a mortal, she picked up quite a few languages along the way such as French, English, a basic understanding in Spanish, she knows Latin and she also knows Enochian in this world because that’s what Pymon would have taught her. And in her celestial form, she basically knows all languages throughout history, just because of how many times she had to reincarnate and as for slang, one that’s really popular is referring to Larathel as the fallen queen and mostly, who does this is the zealots of Yaida’s Army and that’s because they don’t really respect her and she doesn’t like the fallen messengers being referred to as the fallen and she also doesn’t like being referred to as a queen because she doesn’t see herself as much more of a figure to guide the messengers back home and she doesn’t really like being referred to as like a regal entity.

14. What does your main character consider important and what does your main character consider specifically important?

The culture in the celestial plane really values knowledge and understanding and that’s what they gain their power from a lot is learning and growing as an individual soul. So, that’s usually what is most valued in the celestial plain. Why Larathel specifically values is trustworthiness because of the betrayal and how her kind had to face that being naïve as they were. And then also, that same quest for knowledge and to grow as a individual.

15. What rites of passage are in your world? And what is your main character looking forward to if any?

So, for the Elohim, there are really two big rites of passage just for them and the first is pulling themselves out of the flow of time because this is basically what brings them into existence past just a conscious timeline in the flow of time. And the second right of passage is creating their first time messenger and this is basically their apprentice, their bodyguard, basically companion in the celestial plain that’s not usually a romantic companion, she was actually looking forward to creating her high messenger more then anything and she waited quite a bit before she created Pymon just because she wanted to make sure that it was the right time.

16. What legend or folktales are popular in your world?

So, both Lilith and Larathel are considered legends in the universe underwriting and that’s because they are the first and only Elohim in the mortal plain and even still, Lilith was very weakened in her journey to the mortal plain unlike Larathel who actually gained power through the process that she used.

17. Tell us a fun fact about your character’s world.

So, a fun fact about this universe is it’s actually a omniverse and that means that it basically has potential to cross over with different fictional universes and in my mind, somehow, I’d always imagine Dr. Who kind of intersecting since there’s a lot of wibbly-wobbly time stuff going on but I’m sure that there are other universes that could also intersect with.

 

So, I think that’s it for now everyone.

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Today, I’m bringing you a Manuscript Chat where I will be talking about the bindings and essentially what the bindings are is a set of universal rules that apply to all beings within the universe and that includes the Elohim, the messengers, mortals like us and really everyone who falls within the scope of the universe.

So there are basically two prime bindings which are:

  • none shall destroy what they did not create
  • none shall create without free will.

So, that’s basically the foundation for the bindings and then there’s a lot of little tiny adaptations on top of those ones to also apply to different mortals and different beings and then other creatures that came along afterwards that didn’t necessarily fall within the original scope of the bindings which would have been the Elohim. So there’s a little bit of ambiguity when it comes to the bindings and the Elohim.

They are not really sure who put them in place, it could have been Elhreal or they could have existed when they got into the celestial plane from the get go. It was not really established who put them in place because Elhreal kind of keeps it a mystery whether or not he knows who created them and this is not purposely so anyone who’s looking to manipulate the bindings for malicious purposes has a harder time of actually doing that because they’re there to keep the advent flow of the universe in check.

The Bindings themselves are sort of like living and non living entities that invoke punishments and jailers and they also exist to feed magical energy to the mortal plane and that’s really also kind of like their non living purpose, they’re not really doing it consciously, it’s kind of just an effect of how the planes are joined together.

If you’re powerful enough and this is usually only the Elohim and I think Lucifer as well, you can actually see the red sigil that anchors the bindings to the different planes. So, during the Elohim’s recorded history, if you could call it that, there’s not really a lot of records where the bindings are really invoked and I think this is because more or less, the Elohim aren’t really malicious and aren’t looking to do things that would break the bindings, the only two times were with Lilith when she was betrayed by Iaida and the other time was when Larathel defeated Gabrielle and it was kind of a unsettling feeling that everyone got when this kind of happened because Elohim are not meant to break the bindings, they’re supposed to be the best of the best.

So, I think that’s it for now guys. If you like this video make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more. If you want to see a specific topic covered in Manuscript Chat, make sure to leave a comment in the comment section down below.

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, today I’m going be bringing you a book bag video where I talk about HP Lovecraft, the Lovecraft Compendium as well as Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot.

I started reading the Lovecraft Compendium back in October sometime and I finished it up at the beginning of November and I just haven’t had a chance to shoot a video for it. But I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I thought I would, I really couldn’t connect with a lot of the characters because they just seemed to talk down to other cultures and it didn’t really sit well with me, I knew going into HP Lovecraft Compendium, what kind of writer he was and I thought that I could kind of get past it but it really just stuck with me and rub me the wrong way. I like how he often chose academically driven characters that were interested to know more about this culture of this like squid monsters but they always came off condescending and just downright disrespectful to other cultures and that didn’t sit well with me even remotely. I think of the short stories that were included in this collection, I really like The Call Of Cthulhu the best, it still had those same things that I didn’t really enjoy very much from the others but for the most part, that was really the only one I enjoyed and near the end, I was kind of just pushing through just to be done with it because I wasn’t enjoying it at that point.

All in all, I’m glad to have read this Lovecraft compendium but it didn’t really sit well with me and I probably won’t read H.P. Lovecraft’s work again.

So now that I’m done with the Lovecraft compendium, I’m actually going to be reading Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliot instead of Victoria and this is because I’m going to be working on the draft for Time to let go instead of On Fallen wings and I wanted something that had more of a Tristan in his old field because that’s what the main characters are kind of based off of in my work in progress and not so much of a strong queen-like female protagonist that On Fallen wings has. I really wanted to get my head in the Tristan in his old theme so, that’s why I’m going to be going with this one instead.

So, I think that’s it for now guys, if you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more like them. If you have a recommendation that you’d like me to check out, then feel free to leave a comment down below. And I’ll leave links to all the books that I mentioned here today. And I think that’s it.

So, I’ll talk to you guys next time.

Back with another Book bag video after finishing The Lovecraft Compendium in November. In this episode I talk about my thoughts on The Lovecraft Compendium and Twilight Of Avalon jumping to the next book I’ll be reading.

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

I’m coming with you with the monthly update from outside of the chapters in Polo Park festival, I was gonna shoot inside but then I realized that there was copywritten music so, I decided not to do that.

So, you probably notice during the month of November that the videos were a little sparse, that is because of how far I fell behind in NaNoWriMo.

(I will put a graph of my stats somewhere over here so you guys can take a look at that.)

At one point I think I was about 10000 words behind or something but I managed to catch up and actually claim a win so, that was a victory in my part but unfortunately the channel kind of fell on the way side but we will be getting back into videos coming in December.

If you’re looking out to check out some videos and you haven’t actually checked out the Manuscript Chat about Lilith who is the first of the betrayed, make sure to go ahead and check that out and videos will be coming soon so, keep an eye out for those. Right now, I’m working on some short stories, one for the Manitoba Writer’s Guild as well as my Patreon Patrons so, keep an eye out for that and now that NaNoWriMo is over.

I’m gonna be getting back to one of my works in progress and I’m actually going to be looking at Time To Let Go.

I got a great idea for a scene NaNoWriMo in the last week so I thought, fuck it, I’m gonna put On Fallen wings to the way side since I haven’t been able to write the sequel and the last book in the series so, I’m gonna wait until I have all three in the series before I start releasing that one just because I don’t want people to have to wait between books. So, you guys can expect to see some Time To Let Go related videos coming up soon because I will be working through an edit on that because I wrote the draft back in April during camp NaNoWriMo. So, I will be working on that now instead of On Fallen wings just because I want to get it published and out for everyone to read then, it just makes more sense than On Fallen Wings right now so, I will keep you updated.

Patreon was also a little sparse because of NaNoWriMo but you can expect to see some short stories and a few other worldbuilding goodies coming up soon so keep an eye out for that if you’re one of my Patreons. There are also a few more giveaways going on till the end of the year, we have the short horror, as well as the 25 days box set which is the Dystopian survival and post apocalyptic books.

So I think that’s it for now guys, I will leave all the links in the descriptions down below and if you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe to more videos like them and I’ll be returning to the channel a little more frequently in the next coming week so hit the little bell for notifications for videos of mine and I will see you guys later.

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, today I’m bringing you a Manuscript Chat talking about a character of mine named Lilith.

For those of you who’ve watched my other videos, you’ll know I’m working on a collection of short stories for NaNoWriMo called Lost To The Seams and this short story collection is actually around Lilith. So, I thought that this would be a good time to talk about her.

So, let’s get into it then.

Lilith is actually part of the race of Elohim and she’s most well known among them for being the creator of what’s called the Soul Basins. I won’t get into it too much in this video but the basic concept of a Soul Basin is a device that lets you put a soul into a vessel in the celestial plane. So, Lilith is actually very popular among the Elohim because of the soul basins and these soul basins are integral to creating the messengers which are the primary companionship for the Elohim.

Lilith is very unique within her race because she’s known as the first of the betrayed when the great betrayal happened and the rest of her kind was essentially wiped out. She was tricked into making a dagger for the main antagonist of On Fallen Wings and in doing so, invoked the bindings which are a set of universal rules that cannot be broken by any creature in the universe.

What happened when she invoked these laws, during a ritual that she didn’t realize had the consequences it did, imprisoned her and basically punished her for breaking the rules.

She’s also very unique in the sense that she broke out of this prison when no one thought that that was possible and she ended up actually ripping herself into the mortal plane which was also believed to be impossible because one of the bindings is, an Elohim cannot set foot in the mortal plane.

So, the short stories that I’m working on kind follow Lilith through how she’s handling being in prison and breaking through.

What Lilith has to do once she’s on the Mortal Plain is get used to the passage of time and really get used to being immortal in a place where she’s not meant to be and the whole time, she just wants to get back to her home in the Celestial Plain and she kinds of struggles along the way until she finds Lucifer and Paimon and learns that there has been been a celestial war and that the messengers have fallen and everything has basically gone to shit since she fell to the mortal plane just as the messengers did.

Without Lilith, there was no way that Lucifer and Paimon would have been able to bring Larathel back and set the plains right again. It would have just been out of their comprehension and they just didn’t have the skill set necessary to perform the ritual.

So she’s a character that’s meant to be a very mentoring role but she’s very anti social especially after she’s betrayed and she doesn’t really like interacting with too many because she’s very untrusting and I understand why so because she was tricked by one of her own kind that she trusted. So, she’s got trust issues for sure.

I think that’s it for now so, if you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe for more like them. If you wanna see a specific topic covered, leave a comment down below and I’ll try and do that in the next videos, all of these topics and more are covered over on my Patreon so if you’re looking for some more world building and behind the scenes stuff with my universe then make sure you head over to my Patreon and look at that. If you’re looking for some ebooks, makes sure to check out the dystopian and post apocalyptic giveaway, along with the short horror giveaway as well. There’s tons of short stories and ebooks going on over there so head over to the link down below.

So I think that’s it and I will talk to you guys next week.

In this episode of Manuscript Chat I talk about Lilith, First of the Betrayed. I thought it would be a good time to talk a bit more about Lilith, since I am working on a series of short stories based around her for NaNoWriMo 2017.

Hey Everyone.

Trynda here, Today, I’m doing a video from Garbage Hill as we call it in Winnipeg.

I can’t remember the actual name of the park, I’ll put it in the bottom of the video.

It’s windy and cold so, I’m going to make this quick.

This week on the channel, we have the Manuscript Chat about the Messenger, we have the Method To My Madness about podcast and the All Hallows Write Tag.

On Patron, we have the Revival (Episode 4) short story that went out from Patrons and we also have the Dead Witch Walking short story as well.

For those of you who want to get in on the Revival (Episode 4) action, I will put a link down below where you can buy it on Amazon, Smashwords and basically everywhere else that you want to get it.

We have a few giveaways going on right now, there is the Short horror giveaway which is a collection of horror paranormal short stories.

We also have the dystopian and post-apocalyptic short story collection as well and I will put both links in the description down below.

As some of you may know, for my other videos, I am doing NaNoWriMo, right now, I’m sitting at about 8,000 words, I’m a little bit behind but I will hopefully catch up over the weekend and I’m sure I’ll have another video out for you guys next week about my progress.

I am also going to be putting up a Manuscript Chat this week as well, it’s just going to be up a little later in the week since I fell so far behind in NaNoWriMo and I made up this weekend for the most part.

So, I will get it done as soon as possible and I think that’s it for now guys.

I’ve got to go warm up so, if you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe for more and if you haven’t checked out my Patron and my NaNoWriMo account, feel free to check out the links down below and I will talk to you guys later.

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Today, I’m bring you the All Hallows Write Tag. I first saw this on Alina Popescu’s channel and I think I’ve also seen it on , of the dark one, basically everybody. So, I decided that I would do this one as well because it just seemed like a really fun tag to do. So, let’s get into it. This tag was originally started by Sam Caste and there are really only two rules to it and that is to give a brief description of your work in progress and use a character no more than three times. So, the work in progress that I’m going to talk about is on fallen wings and that is a paranormal urban fantasy that is based around the main character Larathel. The story follows Larathel as she’s reaped from an attempt at a normal life and pulled into this world that’s even unusual for her when she finds out that she’s a god in hiding and it comes to the point where she is forced to confront the god who is actually trying to kill her. So, with a brief summary done, I will get into the questions.

1. It’s Halloween night, what’s your main character dressed up as?

Larathel would probably dress up as poison ivy because she has a thing with plants and she’s really into growing them and maintaining them and giving them life because she’s a mother nature like character.

2. Which character is the one who shows up up the costume party without a costume?

This would have to be Lilith because she’s a stick in the mud who just wants to be left alone to her books to find a way to get back to the celestial plain.

3. Which character has the most outrageous costume and what would they be?

It would probably have to be Gabrielle because Gabrielle uses her feminine vessel as a way to beguile male human beings more often than not and uses that sexuality to her advantage.

4. Werewolves, vampires and zombies are on the prowl. Which one go after which character?

Well, since the cursed fallen messengers are almost like vampires anyways, that’s probably what would go after my characters and I would say it would probably be Lucifer going after Larathel because Lucifer has lots of problems controlling his thirst and he’s had problems in the past with controlling himself around Larathel and her previous incarnations.

5. Who wins the prize for best costume?

Lavithin would win the contest hands down and that’s just because she puts a lot of time and effort into the way that she’s portrayed by her attire and she really likes flashy and intricate looking pieces and I would say that probably has to do with the dragon inspired nature that she’s supposed to have in her personality.

6. Who hands out the tooth brushes and toothpaste to the poor trick or treaters?

I’ll say that mastermind has to be the one that hands out this kind of stuff because she is another stick in the mud who just wants to get to business and she’s a no nonsense person and she won’t even want anything to do with candy or sweets or having a good time.

7. Which characters would decide to pair up and do an Angel/Devil costume together?

So, this is a bit of a weird question because the fallen messengers and Larathel and Lilith wouldn’t really think that it’d be tactful to dress as an angel and devil combo considering the subject matter and because they ended up on the wrong side of the celestial heavenly war but Gabrielle and Michael would wholeheartedly dress up as an angel and devil combination just to rub it in their faces and be dicks for no other reason.

8. Which character is too scared to even go to a costume party?

I don’t think there’s anyone who would be too scared because a lot of the cast of the fallen messengers are kind of super soldier-ask so, they’re not really afraid of a whole lot but I can think of Lilith, and Behemoth actually would want nothing to do with the costume party and would prefer to be left alone.

9. Who overdoses on candy?

So, this one, if has to be Pymon hands down just because he’s a very playful character and if he could eat candy, which he can, be would wholeheartedly overdose on candy just because that’s the type of personality that he is. And he really enjoys living life to the fullest and he would have no problem living with the consequences on overdosing on candy.

10. Who puts a hex on someone?

This would have to be Yaida wholeheartedly and this is because Yaida’s already placed the fallen vampire like curse on the fallen messengers and he would have no hesitation when it came to placing a curse or a hex on somebody else. Yaida is the kind of person who will hex or curse anyone who gets in his way and doesn’t really care and he would kill you before he would let you ruin his plan.

So, that’s it for now guys. I’m going to be tagging Amara from ToAllThePeopleBackHome and Cheyanne Murray and I will put their links down below with all the others.

Hey everyone, Trynda here.

Today, I’m bringing you a Method To My Madness about podcast. I thought I would do this video instead of something about character sheets or outlining because everyone’s kind of doing that for NaNoWriMo already and I wanted to talk about stuff that gets me out of the slump when I’m writing and I just don’t feel like writing anymore.

So, I’ll get right into it then.

I’ll start first off with the Dead Robot Society Podcast. Dead Robot Society is hosted by the authors Terry Mickson and Paul E. Coole, listening to these two talk about writing always gets me back in the mood to start working on my manuscripts and start treating my work like it’s actually important and getting me out of those slumps when I just don’t feel like writing. The both of them are really funny and they have a very good dynamic together so, I’ll definitely recommend this if you’re looking for any podcast and you haven’t heard of them yet.

The next one I’m going to talk about is the Story Grid Podcast. It’s a podcast hosted by author and editor, Shawn Coin, and author Tim Crawl. These two go back and forth talking about story structure and story craft while team Tim works on his first fiction work. So, it’s a vey good podcast to learn about terminology and concepts that you might not have known about. And it sometimes makes you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing but at the same time, they talk a lot about topics that you don’t think you know but realize that you do know after listening to them especially Shawn explaining how authors go about writing stories and it’s really helpful. I find when I feel lost and I’m not sure where there’s a problem with my manuscript.

The next one I’m going to talk about is the Creative Penn hosted by Joanna Penn. The Creative Penn is a podcast that kind of touches all the basis that an Hindi author comes across while they’re publishing and marketing and doing all the things that they have to do to get their book into the world. I really like Joanna’s podcast because she’s got lots of industry news that I wouldn’t hear about otherwise and she has lots of different guests on that give a lot of different points of view and really get you thinking about things that you wouldn’t otherwise or give you knowledge about tools that you wouldn’t have known if you didn’t listen to the podcast. I found quite a few different handy tools through Joanna and the other podcasts and I really think that all three of these podcasts are really good at helping writers find different avenues to get their books into the world.

The next one’s a a bit new to me and that is the Sell More Books Podcast hosted by Jim Cockerel and Brian Cohen. I recently found out about them through the Creative Penn podcast, I started listening to them to find better ways to market my books and this podcast I found really helpful for finding out about different areas of the industry and market place like create space and KPD select that I just don’t have experience with because I don’t have a book that’s published through them. So, I found it very helpful for things that I just don’t have experience for and learning new things about marketing that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise.

The last two I’m going to talk about aren’t really writing related and that is the Joe Rogan podcast and Rooster Teeth Podcast. I listen to these two podcasts because they have a wide variety of topics that aren’t writing related and they have a lot of different perspectives that I think is good to get the juices flowing for creativity and they have a comedic theme to them so, it’s cheerful and light and often quite funny. So, I think those two podcasts are really good because they don’t really hold anything back and they don’t have a specific aim other than entertainment. I definitely recommend it for anyone who’s looking to get some ideas or the juices flowing for brainstorming because they have a lot of different content that kind of suites a wide variety of people.

So, I think that’s if for now guys, make sure to like and subscribe to my channel if you like this video. Revival Episode 4 is still available for preorder, it launches on November 1st so, make sure to check out the link for that. Patrons can expect to see Revival Episode 4 within a week and there’s also some worldbuilding content that went up this last week for them so, make sure to check that out below if that’s something that you’re interested in. I reached 300 followers on my Twitter recently so, I decided to do a giveaway, by the time you’re seeing this video, the giveaway should be active. So, check out the link below for my insta freebie profile and you can get all the books available for free right now all in the same place.

I’d love to hear what you guys are listening to for podcasts so, leave them down below in the comments and I will talk to you guys later.

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, bringing you another manuscript chat.

Today, I’m gonna be talking about the messengers which are basically a race that live in the celestial plane with the Elohim.

They are created through making a covenant of some sort whether it be for protection or companionship or really anything the Elohim and that soul make a pact for. Depending on what purpose they were made for, the messengers will look different but often times, they’ll have a base image that is inspired from different areas throughout history. Some taken from biblical references others from the Italian renaissance. Some of the base line features that the race of messengers have are huge wings that they can fly with, pale white skin, silver eyes, silver hair and a very tall, lanky but slightly muscular form.

Some of them are more muscular than some of them are not but it really depends on what they were created for because that’s going to assist them with the task they were assigned to do.

I don’t know if assigned to do is the right word because it’s kind of a ‘you help me and I help you’ agreement between the Elohim and the messengers. So, it’s not so much of a self serving thing although there are exceptions, it’s more of a agreement and respect for one another.

Among the messengers, there is also the high messengers which are basically the equivalent of an arch angel and that is the right hand or second in command of the Elohim that created them.

Once again, there are exceptions to this rule but more often than are not, the high messengers serve as body guards, companions and kind of a jack-of-all-trades that assist the Elohim whenever and wherever they can.

Some of the High Messengers that are in On Fallen Wings are Lucifer, Paimon, Michael and Gabriael. I think those are the few that I’ve mentioned, there are more that I can’t think of off the top my head but those are the ones that I’ve talked about so far.

Since the high messengers act as body guards, that are incredibly hard to kill and are often very skilled in the art of combat and various other trades that are appealing to the Elohim that created them.

So, I think that’s it for now guys. I’m going to put the sheet from my world bible up on my Patreon for Patreons to see, if you haven’t checked out my Patreon, make sure to check out the link below. (Revival Episode 4) launches on November 4 so, if you haven’t gotten your preorder and you’re looking my to get one, then make sure you head to the link below as well.

If you like this video make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel. If there’s something in particular you’d like me to talk about then leave a comment down below and I try to cover that in the next video.

I think that’s it for now and I will talk to you guys next week.

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Bringing you an update today from the Canadian human rights museum.

I found this nice little spot over on the side so I figured I’ll do a video here. There was a train and I think there are still trains so if it’s a little noisy I apologize about that, it wasn’t my intention to have a train in here.

So, up on the YouTube channel this month, we have a Manuscript Chat about the Elohim which are the gods in my universe and I also put up an Authortube Worldbuilding tag where I answered questions about world building. I also managed to get up a Book Bag video where I talk about what I thought of Neverwhere and what I’m going to be reading next.

On Patreon this month, I wasn’t able to get a short story up but I was able to get a few world building post up for Patrons and I’ve also put up a behind the scenes look at the cover for what I’m working on in November for NaNoWriMo so, you can go over there and have a look if you’re a one dollar Patron or more.

During September, I made sure to get the author Trynda E. Adair website all tuned up because it was looking a little stagnant so now it is looking freshly redone and it’s on a WordPress framework for anyone who’s interested. My reason for picking WordPress was a little bit more technical only because I work in php and WordPress already so I wanted to be able to have a website for something that I could already actively develop and maintain and fix if I needed to. That was a little bit more tactical for anyone who’s interested.

In October, you can expect to see some videos about prepping for NaNoWriMo. In November. I’m not gonna be working on a novel this year, I’ll be working on a series of short stories that I’m doing instead just because I wanna work on some stuff for my Patrons and get some exclusive stuff that they can look forward to.

I’m also going to be redoing the rewards for Patrons and goals because right now they don’t just make a lot of sense to me and I want to have stuffs that’s a bit more enticing and I want to make them a bit more rewarding for those who are actually being Patreons to me. So, I will give you guys updates on that as they come up and I will let you know.

If you’re looking for real time up to date updates, then I suggest heading over to any of my social media sites. You can check out my Facebook or my twitter. You can also check out my mailing list and get free short stories as well as updates every month on what I’m working on and I think that’s it for now guys so, if you have any suggestion on videos you wanna see during prep-tober, feel free to leave them down in the comment below. If you haven’t checked out my Patreon yet, have a look at that, the rewards and the goals are going to be changing soon so keep that in mind but if you have something you want to see, then feel free to leave a comment over on my Patreon or in the comments down below. So, I’ll make sure to leave all of the links below in the description for you guys. If you like this video or any of my other videos, make sure to subscribe and leave a like on the video and I will put up more like them.

So I think that’s it for now guys, I’ll see you guys later.
