So I've begun my research for my next novel: the sequel to Ascend: Descend by L.M. Gose. Have you heard about Jinn? A jinnī is related to an angel or a demon but they aren't either. It's said that God made the Angels on the Wednesday, Jinn on Thursday and Humans on Friday. It's fascinating because Jinn can possess humans or shapeshift into human or animal form. They can be good or evil, and God had created them thousands of years before humans but they were so vile that he killed nearly all of them, throwing the remaining few to faraway mountains and islands. Then he created humans.
It's beyond interesting and I've already come up with the idea of a set of fraternal twin sisters from Pakistan who are Jinn; and I'm very lucky because I do have a friend in Pakistan that can help me fully flesh out these characters and do them justice to the culture which they're from. She's been very helpful already.
Anyways, I have a house to tour later in a town about an hour and a half away but it's literally a gorgeous house... I don't know if we'll make an offer but I can't wait to see it. I already went out to see my horses and worked my gelding, fed them both grains and alfalfa so they're super spoiled today.
Hope your day goes well.
