Default An idea for an original series I have

This idea I've had floating around in my head for the past few months will be inspired by the works of Rick Riordan (the author of Percy Jackson, The Kane Chronicles, etc), and involve the Mayan gods (who are extremely underrated). The real world setting will take place in San Diego, with the plot starting on the main character's tenth birthday (December 21, 2012.... AKA the end of the Mayan calendar).

I have the rest written down somewhere, but I have to find it.......

Default Re: An idea for an original series I have

Sorry for bumping/double posting, but I have two possible titles for the first "book" of the trilogy.

I was thinking either....

The Axe of Storms (a reference to Chaac, the rain god)

or

The Legion of Bats (reference to Camazotz, the god of bats)




(I will use both of these names for different books)

Either way.... The main character is Bobby Cortez, a descendant of the serpent god himself, Kukulkan.
Bobby has to go on the Trials of Xibalba, in order to stop the Mayan apocalypse, and will meet many gods along the way, varying from Ah Muzen Cab (god of bees), to Zipacna (demon of the earth's crust).

First of all, the raccoon ran away as the lasagna splattered all over and was loud as hell, and second, my shoe was covered in lasagna. True story.

He's gotta have honey in everything; even his shampoo.
