Back in October 2016 when I first began gathering ideas for this story I had no idea I would actually publish a book! Of course it was always a dream, but also seamed to be in the far and distant future like a fairy tale.
I was recently looking through the blue notebook with my first ideas, little sketches, and midnight jot-downs. It was a blast to read two or three different climax ideas and then look at the finished story!
All through NaNo I worked to be on time with my word count, still not totally sure what I was doing….. Without warning, the characters pulled me into their lives and I enjoyed the journey immensely, laughing and even crying right along with them. As December rolled in, I stared in shock at a rough and ragged (but still living and breathing) first draft!! I had done it!!
But it end didn’t there….not by a long shot! xD The editing process felt hard at times, but with the help of my wonderful editor and beta readers, we’ve finally pulled through and it came out so much better for it! The facts stable, plot stronger, characters deeper and even more relatable than before. ❤
It is with mounds of thanks to my family and friends that I’ve finally made it! And I am now T.H.R.I.L.L.E.D. to announce that my novel is available for purchase!!
I hope you enjoy the book! And please, leave a review!
I can’t wait to hear what you all think!
