Nice! Sounds like there's some interesting symbolism in there.(Copied and pasted from a PM)
At the moment I’m currently writing about two very different women with a complex and sometimes strained friendship who are assigned to work together as midwives, or ‘birthkeepers’ as I have called them. One possesses the power of healing, the other has a darker power of pure life and death, an ancient power that was thought lost over time. They navigate a world where those who are gifted with specific rare powers are disappearing, their powers siphoned by a greedy powerful force (we don’t yet know what), and one of my leads is being hunted throughout book 1. That’s the long and short of the plot.
I aim to explore female friendship, women who work with other women and that relationship dynamic, and it also has coming of age themes in there too.
Not sure if it reads like ‘chick lit’ but honestly not sure if it would appeal to a male audience. I don’t think it’s too heavy on the feminine stuff, but I can’t tell at this point as it’s in its infancy.
