Hello, everyone. It's me, Helena Seryma author of Artificial mates. First, congrats for sticking with me until the end. Second, now that AM is done. I'll move it away from webnovel. Sorry. But that's how I work my novels. Work the first draft online, when I'm done I go polish it offline then publish it.
If you've liked the story and when to keep reading more about the world.
follow me online on my website:
About Artificial Mates:
It all started with an idea...what if I did a REAL love triangle where it really involved three people. I kinda put the idea in a corner for a while. Then one day I wrote the 1st three chapters. Back then I was working on Spell programmer and 3 am app. A fantasy and a creepypasta. Those are very different stories. Frankly, I had to rewrite that first chapter a couple of times before it was decent. I knew I wanted to write romance...if you knew me you would hold your belly and roll around. People who knew me actually laughed when I said I was going to write a romance. >_> fuck them. I write whatever the hell I want, anyway.
People, I'm not romantic and I knew my point of view on the whole romance genre will be...different. I just hope it wasn't too cringy.
Amongst all the stories I've written (about a dozen) AM is the longest and the only one I can reread just to enjoy being with my characters. Yes, I write, first for myself. When I reread my own stuff I usually pull a long face and throw it across the room while screaming "Burn it with fire!!!" yeah I'm very critical of my own work. But here I was reading my own shit and laughing...I was like what is freaking wrong with me. Yes, each time I read AM I laugh. Some times I ask myself if I was the one who actually wrote it >_> it make sound strange but I feel this way towards AM.
Liliane:- oh god what can I say about her? Poor girl really needs to seek professional help. But on the journey writing those 4 freaking books... I felt I've connected with her. Some times I want to slap that bitch. But in the end, she is just human...poor thing.
Demos:-You can all clearly feel...see, read that I love Demos. I've even commissioned an artist to do a custom Demos t-shirt last Christmas. Yes, I freaking love him. The ultimate bad boy with a big heart.
Grant:-as well as I love Demos, I also love Grant but in a different way. Demos is on the emotional level but Grant is on the intellectual level. I've created Grant so that he would have nothing to do with how human acts. He is clearly a machine and love like one...a selfless love that humans can't attain or understand. If when you read it he comes out creepy somethings and you can't put a finger on it...that's cause he doesn't seem natural. Which he isn't. We humans get creeped out by ...dolls for example cause they mimic us with that unsettling glassy eyes that stare back. By the way, I love dolls I don't find them creepy. Also why I love robots, cause I love to peek inside to see what makes them tick.
Nicolai:- I've always imagined him as this classy black guy in a 3 piece suit. He has his air of royalty around him. You don't know how he does his running in dressed-shiny shoes but he does with ease. I just really like his every interaction. Liliane seems to think there's a thing going on with Grant and Nicolai... Well, Liliane had a lot of insecurities...poor thing.
Olga:- Olga is the female badass in the story. That's it, period. No, I'm just kidding. I really want to tell her story. But that's a whole other book >_> Dr. Churchhill, you freaking perv!
Atlas:-What can I say about him, apart from he is the man! I don't normally like my antagonist, compare with Jay Dawson...freaking rot in jail, loser! I just like Atlas, I loved each of his scenes. He bites and it hurts and he has his own reasons why he is want to rules the world. Well, he's got a little of a god complex, I guess. Thanks to his creator Dr. Laurell.
Dr. Churchhill:-I don't know if he is good or bad...it's more on the gray side. Seriously, he needs his own pov or something. There's a lot to dig in that closet. Cough* Perv.
What will happen to AM?
The first arc ends with book 4. There are three short books after this one. I'll not post them here. They still need polishing. And there's a lot of short stories about this world I want to explore. I like this world so much I'll stay a little longer. So be sure to follow me on social media or my website for more info.
If you've started reading AM like 6 months ago, go ahead and reread it you'll be surprised to see all the changes. Anyway, do it quickly cause I'll get the story down soon.
What is the next story I'm working on?
Next will be a fantasy. A pretty brutal one called: Red Prince of Carnage. I need a break from all the feels. But... in each of my stories, there's a love interest... For those who want to keep reading what I write to thank you for the support. Big hugs and kisses. Your humble author. Helena Seryma.
