Welcome to worlds within worlds.
When I first conceived of my Outlawed Realm series, I had the idea of Earth having more than the dimension we know. In fact, I gave it five dimensions, all of them populated. The dimensions would look something like this graphic:
E1 (Earth as we know it) is the first layer closest to the sun, followed by E2, E3, etc. beneath it. Because of time differentials, the various inhabitants don’t see what goes on in the other realms.
That is, if they’re behaving themselves and don’t go through the portals connecting the realms.
As the series begins, my hero is definitely breaking the rules, and sets into motion a series of events that cause inhabitants from one dimension to go into the others. All with exciting and very romantic results.
In Unending Desire, book one of the series, the hero comes from E2, a place where everything is controlled, emotion isn’t allowed, all the men look the same. All the women are identical in appearance. He comes to Seattle (E1) to rescue the heroine from certain death. Imagine his shock in seeing our messy, vibrant world after being so restricted in his own. In book two, Illicit Desire, I wrote about E4, a world of twilight and jungles. E2’s rulers have built a palace there where they enjoy pleasure slaves. These slaves aren’t born, they’re grown in artificial wombs to begin a lifetime of servitude to their masters. Shameless Desire, book three, again takes place in Seattle. One of the shifters from E4’s jungle has crossed over. Like the hero in Unending Desire, he needs to warn the heroine of danger. Read more…
