Just finished second draft of my second novel, YA ghost story, The Journal of Apolline Durand. Out with my wonderful first readers, Kathryn, Sally, Helen and Lyann. So she's out of the loop for a few weeks.
|Apolline! Play nice with the first readers like a good girl.|
My firstborn manuscript Clamour is out with agents, full manuscript waiting on a response. Have lots of new revision idea for this, but makes no sense to do anything until I hear back from *the* agent.
|Go Aster, wow those agents, get under their skin like you got under mine - I know you can do it|
1. Start on new project The Red Edge. This is spanky new and exciting. Lead character is a boy, Hector. Already feel like I know him (and of course, love him). Story plotted vaguely, but I have a strong sense of premise, themes and place and a cracking good opening chapter. Scenes pop into my mind continuously for this one.
|The Red Edge - Space adventure that mainly takes place on the planet Rutilus 2 in the Scorpios Constellation.|
|Khone Falls in Laos. Setting of the tribal summit in Scatter - sequel to Clamour|
Or second book in trilogy. Focus on the one I already love - and that would be easy as pie to write? Could probably knock out a first draft for this in a month or so. Vote Green.
Best thing of all? Love both these ideas and can't wait to get started....
