This blog-fest allows authors (and their readers) to hop around to discover other authors WIPs, and link up with potential CP’s and BR’s for their own projects. Jump on board, read all about my current WIP – Finding Luna #2 The Supes Series, and enjoy! This is also my Celebrate the Small Things post, and I’m celebrating my current WIPS and the progress I’m making on it, and that I’m off for a week in Phuket tomorrow! *Squeals loudly and forces fist into the sky (it’s my first time in Thailand) 😀
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.
Here are the prompts he would like us to follow:
Finding Luna #2 The Supes Series
(projected/actual so far): Approx 100k
Speculative Fiction: specifically Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Mystery – New Adult Fiction
How long have you been working on it?:
Since last year.
(if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarise your book):
I would NEVER actually do this, but here’s my try.
This is book two in a supernatural urban fantasy series (The Supes Series) and continues the protagonists journey of self-discovery which began in book one (Finding Esta). She must hunt down the identities of her biological parents, but the only one who might know the answer is Queen Vampire Lucy – drinker of children’s blood and all-round evil cow! This means Luna must grow, adapt, work with and trust the inhabitants of her new supernatural world, and believe in herself enough to challenge the murderous Queen. This isn’t going to be easy!
Brief Synopsis (250 words or less):
I am poop at this –
What if a damaged young woman’s world lay in tatters at her feet, along with all she once knew and all she believed. Then imagine new identities forced upon her, all with learning curves, bent till they snapped! Imagine a growing, and at times, uncontrollable taste for blood, occasional bouts of extreme hirsutism, embarrassing dental issues, and two complicated love interests, both of whom believe she’s the prophesied Saviour of the Supes – the one thing standing between them and the pure evil of Queen Vampire Lucy and sire-sister.
Then imagine she is you! What’s your next move?

Are you looking for a Beta Reader?:
For potential BR and CP
Should you wish to join me on this project (GREAT!!) you are very welcome to read book (Finding Esta #1 The Supes Series) one beforehand, if you prefer. I have it available on most formats. I’m in the process of getting book one re-critiqued, so if you did read it and have any suggestions, I’d be interested in those too. I wanted to really give-it-some-welly before I send it to print 🙂 And hey, as my own publisher I can improve my work as I grow, naturally. 😛
Potential book cover designs for Finding Luna
Or this one?
So, want to CP with me? Would you like to BR for me? Do you read/write in my genre? Which cover design would you choose to use, if you were me? Or are both of them poop? Let me know in the comments peeps! And thanks for stopping by! Oh, and please ensure you allow means for me to reach your WIP IT post! 😀
Celebrate the Small Things
As I said above, this post is also for VikLit‘s blog hop/meme – Celebrate the Small Things. To participate, follow the link and pop your name on the Mr.Linky list. Then remember to post every Friday about something special, something which makes you grateful.
Go take a look – It’s FUN and reminds you to appreciate something about your world or yourself, at least once a week!
