WIP Wednesday

Some girls have all the luck, and some are stuck spending their summer in middle of nowhere Virginia.  I'm definitely the latter of the two.

That's the -tentative- first line.  I've been playing with the idea of HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN for a long time, but after talking with the wonderful Lynsey Newton and sharing with her what I wanted to put into a novel this came about...

Think about it...

What if natural wars...terroist threats... what if they were all a cover up for something else?  And, more importantly, what if you were the seventeen year old girl who found out about it?  Tag that on along with an alien/human romance that may or may not be cause for an intergalactic war that could blow everyone's cover and I may have a winner at my first attempt at YA Sci-Fi.

In other news, MY PAPER HEART is on submission and has gained interest from a certain agent and a small publishing press.  I will keep you all posted.

Contest news.  Even though I'm still 8 followers away the details of the contest will be announced next week, so spread the love and tell people to follow my Twitter darnit!

That is's 9:30 and I have to be to work early.

The punching bag


  1. I'm intrigued by the YA scifi. Good luck with being on submission! :)

  2. OOH I'm intrigued by this YA to say I'm a sucker for unconventional romances and what can be better than alien and human


You should leave me a comment. It would probably make me smile and then I will probably comment back. Unless you are a spambot. Then I will probably just ignore you.
