Got a Website!!!!!

I just published my very own website. I'm super excited about it. It's mostly to establish and introduce myself as an author. Hopefully it will get my name and my debut novel, Culture Shock out there.

Writing a Query Letter.

Okay...so.

Writing a query letter is a little harder than I thought. It was easier writing my 257 page novel than it is to write a one page query letter. What is a girl to do?

I'm still working on it and receiving excellent feedback from friends and family. Hopefully I'll have it perfectly written within a week's time. I really want to get my novel out there.

Projects in my Pipeline


1) "Culture Shock": In the process of being edited. Then it's off to agents...I can't wait to start sending this out. It's my first completed YA novel and I think it's fantabulous!!!

2) "Shock and Awe": Follow-up to "Culture Shock". It's the 2nd book in the Macy Holmes Series. It has more antics and danger than the first book. I'm thrilled with the progress I'm making. I know the characters now, so they are easier to write about. I feel like the characters are my closest friends. Things get crazy in the follow-up book and very unexpected. I'm looking forward to the finished product.

3) "Scavenger Hunt": New, original, start-from-scratch characters. Let's just say characters with superhuman abilities are to be expected. To sum it up...it's a kick ass love story with zombies. Fresh and original in a way zombies have never been before. I have not determined if this will be YA or Adult urban fantasy or if it's a stand alone novel or a series. We will see.

Happy Reading!


Always,

Nette
