Chapter 10 now on Wattpad!

I have been doing a horrible job of keeping up here, but I will blame life as I’m editing a different book. Sorry! But here’s the LINK!

I have a new cover for this, although it will probably change ten more times before I get the work finished. At this point, it looks like I may have time to edit this in June, and maybe it will come out in August. Maybe.

But the first draft is DONE at 63K, and I’m really looking forward to starting Book 2.

And if you’re looking for more about me, you can come by my Twitter, Pinterest, or Tumblr to see what I’m looking at.

Up on Wattpad

I’ve put the very first chapter of Mary Quirk and the Secret of Umbrum Hall up on Wattpad, a first for me. (Not gonna lie, I’m a little nervous about putting it out there.)

Anyhow, it has a temporary cover (below!), and I’m hoping to put up a chapter a week, although I can’t guarantee that.

And we’ll see how it goes! Yay!

Getting Started

I’m finally finding time to do some serious wordcount on my new project as my old one is, so to speak, in the bag–for now, at least. This is going to be a challenge for me, since it’s a new world I’m working in (check out my Pinterest here). But that’s also exciting! A new adventure!

My heroine of this series is Mary Quirk (long story about where that name comes from), and we’ll hopefully be following her through 6 years of magic school.

The challenge of this sort of story is that the writer needs to have all the rules lined up. If we break them later–like suddenly adding time-travel–some people get really annoyed. So I’ve been working on that for a while, trying to be sure that my rules make sense before I get too many words onto ‘paper’.

And it’s possible that I’ll be putting this out on #Wattpad although I haven’t committed myself to that 100% yet. I’ve never done Wattpad, so I don’t have a real posse there. Not yet.

Anyhow, I’m hoping to get this book done by the end of summer, which means it will probably be Christmas at the rate my life usually falls apart. But we can always -hope- that it will work out.
