For lots of reasons (hubris, anxiety, poor planning lol) I had to retire my original simlit, The Curious Chronicles. I kept some elements that I loved but started a whole new story that I'm a) really proud of and b) having a great time writing. I on my blog but the true purpose of this post is start a thread for my new story!Baking By Death is a paranormal romance SimLit featuring a vampire, a sort-of-human, and their wacky group of friends. If you love a good Slytherin/Hufflepuff love match then this story is for you!Content Warning:
This story features adult language, adult situations, and some (paranormal) violence.About the StoryAlice Martin
is twenty-nine years old, human-ish
and cursed. Since the age of thirteen, she’s been sharing her headspace with Ben, the God of Death (and
nectar, as he often reminds her). The arrogant, all-powerful being has run roughshod over her life, sending her on “quests” that have turned her into the town weirdo and putting everyone around her at risk with uncontrollable bursts of power. There are no two ways about it, Alice is a monster and monsters don’t get friends, love, or dream jobs.
When a reality TV baking contest offers a magical prize that can undo anything, Alice sees a chance to finally get the normal life she craves and distraction in the form of a handsome vampire is definitely not part of the plan.
At 544 years old, Vladislaus Straud
is a vampire uninterested in change. Oh sure, he’s willing to update his clothes, speak simlish instead of olde simlish, and even he can admit that cars are far more convenient than horses. But who he is on the inside will never change. Or at least that was the case before he ran afoul of a powerful witch. Now, the brutal king of the vampires is haunted by his past deeds and struggling to contain an emotion he is very unfamiliar with: guilt.
When he hears about a magical item with the power to undo anything, Vlad sees a way to get back to his old self—the monster without a conscience. And the monster without a conscience is definitely not going to fall in love.Will Vlad and Alice follow their plans or will love conquer all? And just what other supernatural shenanigans will they get down to?Start reading here: Updates:
