Six Sunday with a Treat

There are only eight days until Wilde's Fire is released by Noble Young Adult. This time a year ago I was finishing the first draft. Many, many rewrites later, and after working with some amazing beta readers and critique partners, I subbed that book and it was accepted. Many writers work their whole life for an opportunity like this. To say I'm grateful would be an understatement.

I appreciate every one of you who stumbles onto my little pink blog every time I post something new, and I cherish your comments!

Oh, well, now that I'm done being sentimental, I'll paste my Six Sunday lines.

~The squeaking sounds reminded me of bats flooding the navy-blue evening sky, on their way out of their home, looking for food. But something tells me these are no normal bats, and they won't be searching for bugs to eat. "Arland never mentioned bats?"

Cadman glances toward the sky. "There would be no need to; we thought them to be extinct."

More familiar shrieks come from behind us.~

Eeep. Fantasy bats. That cannot be good! And how about that cover?! Awesome, right? Don't forget to check out the trailer.

    Bats?! Oh gosh. There may be bats in my third book. I think they'll make the cut. Do we think alike?

  16. Shudder...not a fan of bats, especially ones that aren't supposed to exist and therefore are probably something else or are otherworldly. Good luck with the book!
