I loved the idea behind this blogfest and thanks so much to DL Hammons and Elise Fallson for creating this opportunity for us to share and connect.
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.
