Premise of series
Divergent Ink is the mesh of different frames of thoughts, various interpretations of one core question that yearns for universal expansion. Although the subject matter may change every year, the purpose of the Divergent Ink series will remain the same.

The first book in the Divergent Ink anthology series, “Crackles of the Heart”, centers around the following question: Can the hot, handsome guy fall for the average, awkward woman?

Rory_DividerMy answer to the COTH question is told in a prose like style entitled “Tale in the Keys of Drastic”. It is about this guy on campus that has a reputation for being a ladies’ man. One day, he is distracted by a woman, and this woman has such an impact on him that he thinks she is worth the gamble for him to overthrow his entire lifestyle. The story is the breakdown of what happens upon his attempt.

I allowed one of my closest friends to take a look at the work. She really liked the flow and said it was a throwback of my prose in Eclectic. Then, just to mess with my friend, I asked her about the characters’ names—she has a thing for getting annoyed if the names aren’t mentioned within the first three to four pages, which is about how long the story is on full sized pages (8.5 by 11).

The interesting aspect regarding “Tale” is that no character name is mentioned anywhere yet she didn’t even get bothered by it because she was so taken with the story.

I invite you to get taken in this “Tale”, coming soon to a retailer near you.
