Book Update: YA fantasy book

I thought I end the year by talking about my latest project, one that I hope would be ready by February.

I am 53k into my 90k YA fantasy book. This is in a way most alarming to me 😆 I hadn’t expected this rapid pace, but I am sure it will be slower now that I am stuck. The ending is done, it is just the middle part and the action packed climax that I have to write. I am still not sure that would be enough for my total word count goal.

I still won’t reveal the cover or the premise of the story. I will drop the book on you when it is complete 😁 I will, however, share with you one little tidbit. In my newest project, I like the male protagonist better than my female lead.

This is rare because I love all my characters equally in all my books, regardless of gender, even if it is a minor character. But he is a complex being, equal parts frustrating, tragic, and oh so charming ❤ I can’t wait for you to meet him.

I end this blog post by wishing you the very best in the coming year. My hope is to improve my writing, my books and share with you all my triumphs and challenges. I hope that you will continue to follow me on my writing journey. Thank you for reading 😊
