in a Pursuit of Publishness
The current WiP that shot into high priority status is the result of this year's A to Z blogging challenge which ended as of today. It's a story that caught me by surprise as I originally came up with a few characters for the daily challenge and pantsed some daily drama involving them. This morphed into a blog opera that ended with a cliff hanger. So I've committed to self-publishing a novel/novella that includes these characters and has an ending.
The WiP is called NEVERLOVE, a paranormal romance for a mature YA group (dark content including a non-detailed rape (can't handle a detailed rape scene...just can't), a suicide attempt and a college student who jokingly sells his soul to the devil, only it was no joke to the devil). Here's a working blurb:
In the midst of forbidden love, a seed plants and blossoms.
From the heart of one damaged by a warped sense of love, true love springs forth.
For those destined for NEVERLOVE, can the binds of impossibility be broken?
Just started this so no cover image as of yet. Have to work on getting that done. For those who may be interested, I created a page with all 26 posts so they can go down the list of links to get acquainted with Abby, Basil, Father Quanon and Drakar: http://publishness.blogspot.com/p/abby-and-basil-a-to-z-blog-opera.html
Take the time to read about Abby, Basil, and Drakar (evil personified if I've ever read it). You'll be drawn in, just as this Broad. Trust me. You won't mind!
Congratulations, Angela. The Brazen Broads wish you great success. Thanks for stopping by today.
Q&A about me:
What are you currently reading?
An ARC for a YA dystopian novel coming out in June. SURRENDER by Elana Johnson, and I'm enjoying it.
Best books read this year/recently.....
Middle grade - Cabinet of Earths by Anne Nesbet
Sci-Fi/post-apocalyptic - Angelfall by Susan Ee
YA Gothic - Lacrimosa by Christine Fonseca
YA paranormal/magical - The Secret of Spruce Knoll by Heather McCorkle
How would you describe yourself?
open-minded and easily led to giggles
Best line you've ever written
- This one is sort of simple, but it grew on me. It's from my YA urban fantasy/dystopian: He locked his gaze with mine, yanking the scythe off the rack. I hoped to one day get used to the molten silver color of his eyes. Today was not that day.
Best line you've ever read
- waaay too many to narrow down to just one.
Yoda's "Do or do not, there is no try."
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
In France so I could totally stalk Johnny Depp...but don't tell him. Let it be our little secret
Biggest lesson learned
- Rejections are no fun but they can lead to better things in life.
Thank you again for sharing Abby, Basil, Drakar and a bit about yourself, too!
May your pen flow easily across the page, or fingers fly across the keys...as the case may be! See you soon, Angela. We'll be keeping our eyes on you as you pursue 'publishness'.
