And now for something completely different
Hey all, just thought I'd throw in something a bit different. So, here goes. As some of you may know, I'm trying to get more of my work out there. You've already seen my little Halloween story, Dorcha Adhmad. And now you should have heard about The Unknown Elf, but have you heard about my story,Kas? Yep, another story/novel that I'm working on. But, this time, I'm going to try going the more traditional route, fingers crossed. The manuscript is all but ready. I just have a bit of tweaking to do on the actual story (formatting, mostly), and the query, and off she goes to the lovely potential agents and/or publishers. And, with fingers crossed, I will get someone who will either represent me or publish my work. I'm going to try and be more patient with this story. It's waited over a decade, a bit longer won't hurt it. But, just to give you a bit of a tease, here's the general gist of the story. Kas is sort of a typical teen. She's got an annoying family (well, annoying to her), including older and younger siblings, and a brother-in-law who is a shrink. Oh, and she hears/talks to a Voice. So, one day, after her Voice tells her not to go up to the mountains, she decides to go against the advice and heads up with her family. It's for a celebration, after all. Unfortunately, that brings her to a most unexpected occurrence. She accidentally triggers an inter-dimensional gateway that plants her square into an alternate reality. That's when things start to get really weird. Waking up in a castle, Kas is faced with cloaked men who want her soul, an invisible man called Milord, a handsome man named Christoph, and a maid named Jenny. Then things get even more complicated when she learns that she's not really who she thought she was. Talk about a total bummer. But, like a champ, she tries to take it all in stride... mostly. That quack of a doctor did have it coming, though, so we'll forgive her for throwing things at him. Confused yet? Not as confused as Kas feels when her past starts to creep up out of the woodwork. But that's enough for now. Once I get my ideas for blurbs and such cleared up, I'll give you a bit more. That and it's bedtime. Cheerio!
