Description

Dante is an angel with a fallen past.

Blaiz hears dragons in his head.

Catian wished he could disappear; one day his dream came true.

Sage heals others with the touch of a glowing hand.

These four misfits will pledge allegiance to the League of Virtues and embark on an adventurous journey into the magical world of superheroes, creating the strongest team in the Seven Seas Society. However, tensions will rise when a new recruit joins the team, and an evil begins to engulf the world as they know it. Missions and morals conflict. Families fracture. Our heroes must choose where their loyalties lie and stop the wicked forces before all is lost to sin. The League of Virtues is a riveting novel that challenges faith, ethics of humanity, and destiny. These characters will have you dusting off your superhero cape and teach you how to fly, pulling at your heartstrings long after you turn the final page.

DESCRIPTION OF MANUSCRIPT

As a creative writing and marketing double major, my senior thesis aims to merge both of my studies, focusing on the three facets: creative writing skills and competency, editing, and publishing. I allotted three months for each sector, resulting in a 115,000-word manuscript. In my first independent study, Advanced Novel Writing and Editing, I studied The Divine Comedy and how Dante imagined the afterlife in creating his medieval epic, as well as Paradise Lost and Milton’s arguments on angels, Satan, and the fall of man. Additionally, I practiced my writing techniques in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres, emphasizing the process of creating a manuscript: prewriting, writing and editing, which included content, line and copy procedures.

The last facet took form in another independent study, Manuscript Marketing, which offered insight to understanding creative writing as a business and the literature industry. I focused on the Four Ps (product, place, promotion, and price), defining my target audience and selecting distribution channels. This half of my presentation identifies the publishing process and how to market a work of writing once it has been finalized.
