– by Eliza Andrews
You know, I’ve been blessed recently with the discovery of some unbelievably talented indie lesfic authors whom I would have never known about had it not been for either recommendations from some FB group members that turned out to be me cuppa tea or from me own accidental discovery.
Eliza Andrews is the latest recommended indie lesbian author (by fellow Lesfic Indie Style group member, Evelyn Smith. Cheers, mate!), who grabbed me attention with this line: “GoT…with lesbians” and 👇 link…
I mean, as a HUGE GoT fan and a lesbian, I naturally felt it was me solemn duty to click on the “alluring” link, just to find out what Andrews meant by LESBIAN “Game of Thrones,” obvs! 😏 Uhh…let’s just say, I was thoroughly satisfied! 😏 Well played, Evelyn, well played! *slow clap*
Now, I’d never heard of Andrews before, let alone read anything of hers, so I didn’t know how her writing and style would fit with what I always look for in lesfic/genfic. Needless to say, intrigued was an understatement. After reading all 9 brilliantly written draft chapters of the lesbian GoT entitled, “Princess of Dorsa,” Book One of the planned “Chronicles of Dorsa” series, I was HOOKED. I really enjoyed her writing style, language and plot structure. Her description of the surroundings were vivid and sound. The slew of characters she introduced piqued me curiosity to no end! I already love the main characters – Tasia (Princess of Dorsa), Emperor of Dorsa’s eldest child and heir to the throne, and Roslyn, the moody, quiet warrior, assigned to protect Tasia, a job she never asked for, a bodyguard Tasia never wanted. So, the natural order? Sparks. Fly. Temper. Flares. Ohhh…the verbal jabs between these two! Simply DEELISH!!
As for the plot and the universe created, Andrews has everything in place perfectly. The geographical areas, the relevant Houses, Wise Men (like Maesters), various groups that may or may not be the Empire’s allies, wars, politics, conspiracies, etc. Even a MAP showing the entire geography of the Empire is already in situ. Rough draft for now but does the job. They’re all there for readers like me to explore and so much more, me reckons! I can only imagine how much more fun it’s going to be when the full-length novel is out! My ultimate excitement is obviously the fact that we’re going to get our very own “Game of Thrones” headed by LESBIANS!!!!! YAY!
So, if you’re a fan of GoT’s who happen to be a lesbian, or have been wishing (like I have!) there were a lesbian GoT to read and enjoy, then this may be your cuppa! Just go to Andrews’ site and read the draft chapters. See if you like it. Per Andrews, the final version will be slightly different than the drafts because of story edits and what not (obvs!). But the drafts at least give us an idea of what the story’s general direction is going to be, the characters, the situations, the intro of various potential plots or diversion, etc. Anyway, the book will be published and released sometime soon (hopefully!). I’m literally CHUFFED to bits, to put it mildly!
Anyway, here’s the link to “Princess of Dorsa” with Andrews’ WIP chapter releases…[x]
