Novels

ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

Some of you are aware that one of my novels, Unspoken, was contracted to a tiny, up and coming publishing house. After some time of not hearing from them, I pushed and was finally told that they were dissolving. During this time I wrote three more novels, one of which was the sequel to Unspoken. But that didn’t help the sense of loss.

Realizing that everything happens for a reason (my motto), I took a second and third look at my query and sent it off to a few agents and publishing houses. I happened upon Parliament House and sent my query and first three chapters and much to my surprise, they asked for the full manuscript! Now, I hadn’t opened up the document in two years mind you so who knows what had been overlooked.  Nails bitten and house neglected, I swept through it one last time and sent it away.

I waited a few weeks. I wasn’t genuinely hopeful because of my failures in the past, but I tried to keep positive. Lots of writers go through dozens and even hundreds of rejections before they find the right home for their work. I know what I love, and that is writing. So I couldn’t be sad. I couldn’t be down on myself and stop writing. I could not give up.

And then my Gmail app chimed, and there was an email from Parliament House, and THEY WANTED MY NOVEL!

So, I’m a thirty-something woman who, now and again, loves her some MG fiction. Soooo, when I saw this listed, read the synopsis and got a good look at that cover, I knew I had to read it. I’ve been in a dragon mood lately, and this one satisfied my craving.

This story follows Rafi, who is different than other kids with his dark eyes and flaming red hair. When shifty things start happening to neighboring villages, some strange people come to Dragonfell to question Rafi and his father. The strangers accuse Rafi of being dragon-touched and seek to take his “power” from him ultimately. Rafi’s ability to not feel the cold or be able to touch hot coals attract more than baddies. On his hero’s journey to find out who he is and the secret about dragons, he meets a girl named Maud, who aids him. But there is more to her as there is to Rafi, so we’ve got some secrets bouncing around to keep us on our toes.

Oh, and dragons. Lots of dragons.

This story was insanely unique and entertaining. It was written age-appropriately. Rafi and Maud were exciting characters that readers will love. The story brought me back to a time when I thought dragons were real and that they could either be beaten or kept as pets. This is an adventurous and fun read for readers of all ages.
