This is the concept and this is where you can find it ...........From DLHammonds and Elise Fallson ......Our idea is that on Friday, May 31st, we will provide a forum to allow anyone interested a chance to tell the blogosphere about their most recent [W]ork [I]n [P]rogress. We’ll guide you by providing a few prompts to answer in your own post, and even give you the opportunity to solicit CP’s (partners who exchange material for detail critique – usually chapter by chapter) or Beta Readers (test readers who read entire manuscripts and offer broad opinions) if you’re looking for that
WIP Title: Legacy Dawning (book 2 in Legacy novella series)
Word Count (projected/actual so far): 30,000 Have written a good chunk of the book, but not yet gone through it, taken it apart, and rewritten most of it LOL
Genre: Young adult supernatural, but not a vampire or werewolf in sight!
How long have you been working on it?: 2 years
Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book):I honestly haven't a clue - obviously need to make this a priority :)
Brief Synopsis (250 words or less):
LEGACY [leg-e-se] something passed through a family, handed down as from an ancestor.
That’s all very well, but what happens when you don’t want it? Is it possible to deny your legacy? I don’t know if I can, or even if I should. But I think I must try. My life is not preordained. Surely I must have some small degree of control over what does, and does not, happen to me?
Dark family secrets are set to rock seventeen year old Joshua's safe and comfortable life.In the second in the series Joshua is struggling to come to terms with the aftermath of the fire and the seemingly supernatural circumstances of his survival. Whilst dealing with this it seems his dreams are getting stronger and refusing to be ignored.
Are you looking for a Beta Reader?: I am lucky enough to have an extremely talented 17 year old that reads it, offers ideas, and corrects where the lead character sounds 50 not 17! The first novella in the series is finished and although I am really happy with it, I think maybe I need to move some of the text around to draw people in. The beginning is a bit weak because that's how Joshua is, but as his life changes the book becomes much stronger (I think anyway!) but if I'm sending it out to publishers they won't get that far! So any help with that would be great :)
