My Series

Okay, so maybe I should actually write a little about the series I'm working on.  It's a young adult fantasy series that will consist of four books and possibly a prequel. Three of the four are completed and in the revising phase, which process, in my opinion, is harder than actually writing the books.  Why?  Because not only do you have to pick apart every aspect of your book, but as you are studying each individual sentence you start to wonder if your book is any good.  Then you have to quickly remind yourself that a book doesn't consist of one sentence and move on to the next sentence where you will have to remind yourself again.  On top of that, you have to read your book over and over and over....and over again.  I have probably read my first book fifty times (thank goodness I love it) and even though I'm prone to exaggeration, I am not exaggerating.  Anyway, I don't want to say too much about the plot of my books because I am in the process of trying to get them published.  Let me give a very brief synopsis, however, with the qualifier that this is, indeed, very brief and doesn't even begin to explain the story.  

A modern day girl finds herself in a distant fairytale world where she must piece together the familiar stories of her childhood in order to get home.  She soon discovers that the stories she had heard her whole life, played out a little differently when they were real people and real places.

I know it's vague and it doesn't say a whole lot, but what can I do?  Hopefully, very soon, you won't have to read a two sentence synopsis, but will actually be able to read my book(s).

  1. You forgot to mention that the title of one of your books should be "It's Raining Men" because of all the cute boys!

  2. Yes, there are lots of cute boys in my books, but more than looks (although that's nice too) it's their fun personalities that I love. After all, they do talk to me quite often, along with the girls in my books.
