How does this sound?


Here is the beginning of my Nanowrimo idea.  Thoughts and comments are always welcome.

The world he lives in is ruled by magic and mechanics, and he is simply one among many orphans.  Then one day he is taken away by an old man with a gold cane.  Suddenly our young hero is thrust into a world of violent gangs, a psychotic patroness and the chance to be someone in life.

The idea is kinda like Oliver Twist meets Great Expectations meets Harry Potter. 


  1. Sounds amazing! I would love to read a book like that. Incidentally, if you’re looking for some inspiration in the whimsical period fantasy genre, I cannot recommend “Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell” highly enough. It’s basically Dickens meets Austen meets Gaiman, so I think you’d really like it if you haven’t read it already.
