And my novel of choice I’ll be working on?
It’s “Nadia, the Hidden Fire Witch,” formerly known as “Witches.”
You can read the pitch at my Author’s Works page. Right away, from the title, you know that it’s a supernatural genre. Aside from that, it’s also geared towards Young Adults. And even with the saturation of stories about vampires, werewolves and now witches, Nada, shouldn’t be like what’s been done
before. Hopefully. (I’m a fan of Charmed and the Weird Sisters, but outside from them, I’m but a babe when it comes to stories centered on witches)
Either way, there won’t be your typical covens or sexy witches, or witches with green skin and warts. This will be a story about the teenage witch, Nadia, and her family. Coming out of hiding, after six years, they settle
down in a new town, where they’d just purchased a B&B. Nadia has enrolled for her junior year in the local high school and can’t wait until summer is over. But her summer vacation is about to get a little weird. And dangerous. Good thing, Michael, her first new friend will be by her side, for it all.
Starting next week, I’ll post on my preparation for NaNo. And once November 1, 2013, 12:00:00 am strikes, I’ll be focusing my efforts, grunting and pacing myself, to the success of the month long birth of Nadia, as well as posting every week about my first NaNo attempt.
Of course that leaves me 10-12 days to work on my rewrite of thefirst seven chapters of the novel. Even though I’d like to do just that, but I’m one busy woman, so I’ll be happy if I can just storm write chapters six and seven. Or maybe split my creative mind, 70-30 between the two.
Well, wish me luck! And enjoy the opening excerpt from “Nadia, the Hidden Fire Witch.”
