About this author

Aprille Legacy is a twenty something who currently resides in Adelaide, South Australia. She lives with her wonderful partner and has an addiction to fortune cookies; there's something reassuring that comes from boxed wisdom. She was also halfway through a BA until she saw something shiny.

Writing so fast and furiously that you know you're making mistakes but you don't care because you're writing 'in the moment' as things happen in the book and you're as much in the plot as your character.

Well, my friends, as production moves along smoothly, I thought I’d post up the first chapter of Soul Inferno. Remember, if you don’t remember what happened at the end of Soul Blaze, you can read the epilogue here.


Release date: May 1st 2015

~Chapter One~

“Your Majesty! Sky!”

I looked up from my book. Seffina was bouncing up and down happily in front of me.

“Dolphins, miss, dolphins!”

Once Every Never by Lesley Livingston
"Clarinet Reid? Oh..."
Aprille and 4 other people liked Anila's status update
Anila is 15% done with Legacy: The writing in this has been rough at best, but the author's started making up words - and I don't mean names. We've got "malefically" and "bolo" - the second is a real word, but means either a tie or a Filipino knife, not the singular of 'bolas' as it seems to be used here. (The singular of 'bolas' is, in fact, 'bolas'.)

Smog City by Rebecca McNutt
“Alford, Massachusetts: Mandy stood there with her old Nikon film camera, snapping photo after photo of the rural landscape. It was difficult to describe the wonderful feeling of there not being a single cell phone in sight; the only modern technology around was the faint blue glow of a cathode ray tube television in the window of a nearby house, and a few cars and trucks parked in crumbling gravel driveways. She was allowed to see this place, one that would likely be ruined by the 21st century as time went on… places like these were extremely hard to find these days. A world of wood-burning cookstoves and the waxy smell of Paraffin, laundry hung out to dry, rusty steel bridges over streams that reflected the bright blue skies, apple pies left out on windowsills… a world of hard work with very little to show for it aside from the sunlight beaming down on a proud community. And Mandy wanted to trap it all in her Kodak film rolls and rescue it from the future.”

Whit I had this meltdown, but then moments later I realized that I was wrong... so... yeah...

I'm just really sad that I lost all of my writing because I didn't save it. So I lost the Bad Rep and everything in between that I should have had written on my computer...

Cheyla Oh my god, we should totally do a joint project! It would epic! Alright. You should message me about this.

message 95: by Cheyla

Cheyla Actually, ruthless inspired me. Not that there are zombies in Ruthless. But it was the whole tone that made me want to do something vaguely dystopian, or apocalyptic... and viola! I had to do something zombie-esque!

message 94: by Cheyla

Cheyla Aprille! Darling! I was wondering if you could check out my zombie book! heh heh.. I was inspired :3


 ℱℓεüя Wonderful! :D

 ℱℓεüя Heyyy Aprille... so... when you going to get around to writing more of Soul Sun? (:

message 91: by Al

Al Thanks for the friend request! Ruthless is AMAZING! I'll have to write a proper review this weekend on it. It was so much fun to read! My favorite book is Wuthering Heights or Dean Koontz's Relentless by the way, but Harry Potter comes in a close second!

message 90: by ℱℓεüя (last edited Jan 29, 2012 06:04PM)

 ℱℓεüя Amazing job with Soul Blaze, Aprille! I hope you're intending to write the beginning of the third novel soon!!! (:

Yay for the soon-to-come Ruthless chapter.
And about Night Runners... I'd love to read it, because you're a fantastic writer, but my parents don't really let me read stuff with supernatural or paranormal themes.
I can assure you, though, that it's probably AMAZING, because all your work is.

Yikes...long story. So I liked him because he's the only guy who doesn't use profanity, isn't perverted, and never used drugs. His friend was my friend and then I saw him playing soccer and I was like, "Hey, he's graceful and his kicks are fluid." Then I kinda sorta maybe stalked him? In my defense, I just wanted to see where he went and if he would notice me following him. ANYWAY, so I told one person I liked him, then all my friends-and I do mean all-and then he was supposed to give me my answer for two weeks and then I told Kayla to ask him and he said yes.
Today he ate lunch beside me (:
