WIP Title: Another New Life

Word Count (projected): 70,000

Genre:  New Adult Romance

How long have you been working on it?:  Mentally, I have been working on it for 2 years, I finally put a scene list  together two weeks ago and have been tweaking it daily in preparation for JuNoWriMo (June 1).

Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book):  Can a girl separate the good from the bad parts of her traumatic childhood, especially 8 years later when the good shows up on her college campus?

Brief Synopsis (250 words or less):  A traumatic event from Miranda’s childhood causes her parents to move to a new town in hopes that their daughter can start a new life. The move meant that Miranda would never get to see Troy, her best friends since preschool.  He is the only positive memory she has from that time in her life, but her parents refused to let her communicate with him.

In high school, those negative memories caused Miranda to make self destructive choices especially when it came to dealing with the opposite sex.

As Miranda prepares for college, she has made a promise to herself to not let her past dictate her future, anymore. She goes to a college where no one knows her, to start another new life.  This time on her own terms and her plan works great . . . until the first day of class when Troy, looking gorgeous and all grown up, walks into her calculus class and sits down next to her.

Miranda and Troy picked up where they left off and their relationship quickly turns into more then just friends.  Miranda is happier then she’s ever been, but its only a matter of time before the truth about her childhood comes out and causes Troy to leave her and ruins her life, again.

Are you looking for a Critique Partner?: Yes, I would love to find a CP who writes, New Adult, Women’s Fiction or Chick Lit.

Are you looking for a Beta Reader?:  Not at this time, but I am open to read other people’s work.  I read everything, but fantasy and paranormal.

  1. Oh wow, this sounds so good. You’ve got me hooked and wanting to know who Troy really is and what happened to Miranda! Good luck with this, and thank you for sharing with us today! (:

    1. I know, I kind of haven’t decided how terrible its going to be, yet. I don’t want it to be to traumatic that her recovery is unrealistic. Have to see where the story leads me.

  2. Good luck with NaNo. I’ll hope to give it a go in November in hopes of picking up my pace!

  3. Is there any month that doesn’t have a WriMo now? 🙂 This sounds like a book that will attract scores of female readers. Good luck with it!

  4. Nice to meet you from the WIP blogfest! 😀 I’m with everyone else… the plot seems to be revolving around that childhood trauma and I want to know what it is!!

  5. Now I wanna know what that secret’s all about too.
    I write women’s fiction, so if you have a look at something I’ve written and like what you see, we could be CP’s. Lemme know.

  6. Sounds so similar to a story I wrote a few years ago. The basic premise anyway. Love meeting fellow NA writers! I think I follow you on Twitter already, but nice to find your blog!

  7. Sounds like a great read! I love a traumatic childhood to get over….

    You mentioned on my blog that you’d be interested in beta reading Stumped. I’d be keen to swap MSs if you like.

  8. Great premise! Sydney, you’ve got it all–romance, dark past, fear, worry. Keep writing this one; it’s a winner. ; )

  9. I read YA science fiction and fantasy primarily, but pitches like this remind me how much I love women’s fiction too and I’ve been meaning to sample new adult. I really like this!
