The Writer’s Manifest is my own little place to come and write about writing. It’s very meta. It is where I can share tips about writing and thoughts about what I am writing about. It is one part imparting knowledge one part mental cleansing.
As for myself, I am Lynn Perretta. I just finished The Shulim Cycle Book of Susan, which is the second in The Shulim Cycle series. The Shulim Cycle Book of Dahlia was the first. The series is Paranormal Romance focusing on the lives of Marilyn Benton and Devon James, and what happens when the distant past comes back to haunt them.
It is not the first thing that I have taken on. I have written for Polymancer Magazine an article titled “I Was Thinking of Making My Character…Evil”. I have a published e-novella Harbin & Klai (also intended to be the first of many, but I want to devote my writing time to BoD primarily). Prior to getting married, I wrote for White Wolf Games (as Lynn Davis) for the old World of Darkness Mage: The Ascension revised. I worked on Guide to the Traditions (fiction inserts), Cult of Ecstasy, Bitter Road, and Initiates of the Arts.
I have been writing stories since I was about twelve years old. In 2008, I completed my English Degree in Creative Writing. My theory and philosophy of writing is formed by my experience, by my education, and by other things that I have studied and learned and applied to writing.
