I’ve written six books. I’ve also published them all through small publishers; one eBook only, my most recent print and eBook. While it’s every writers dream to get paid to play with our imaginary friends all day – I don’t think that’s going to be the case for me. I do, however, get paid to write in the form of proposals and marketing collateral for a healthcare staffing firm. Perhaps it’s because they let me be me and embrace my passion but it fulfills the need, or at least satiates the ravenous thirst, to write for a living. What I’m left with are all of these stories rattling around in my head with no foreseeable outlet. So…torture, basically. A friend of mine introduced me to Wattpad (http://www.wattpad.com/about) and I’m pretty sure it’s the best thing since someone figured out that peanut butter went well with chocolate. I love this site! It gives me an outlet to post my stories and then edit them should there be typos (once your book is out via traditional publishing I don’t think Jesus himself could call the thing back) and interact with other writers. Just FYI – Writers=Readers=Writers we’re all one in the same.
I’d like to introduce you all to “The Lady, The Lake and The Locket.” This was a Nano attempt a few years ago that I’ve been tinkering around with ever since. I’m posting chapters weekly and would love your feedback. Hell, we might even do the whole ‘if she kisses him turn to page 25 if not 65’ thing. (I LOVED those books.) But needless to say, this story isn’t finished yet. Wanna help me write a novel?
The Lady, The Lake and The Locket
Under different circumstances, moving to Grimsby, England to live with her very wealthy grandmother might’ve been the kind of thing Nerina Manchester considered an adventure. But these, well, these weren’t the best of circumstances.
Surrounded by strangers, Nerina will come face to face with a legend and risk everything to save her…but how can you save someone who’s already dead?
“B’ware the Lady in the Lake; she’s looking for a soul to take.”
