WIP QUICK LOOK
A young man struggles with strange dreams throughout his formative years, causing him to feel even more isolated from his peers than usual when the dreams begin to affect him during the waking hours. As he gets older, and the divide between himself and others only seems to grow, he begins to wonder if the dreams are more than just dreams.
When he loses someone he cares about, he returns to his childhood home and finally unlocks the secret that’s plagued him for years. Confronted with this new knowledge, he must decide whether he’s willing to let go of all he knows and face untold dangers for the chance to be a part of something he never thought possible, or remain safely behind and face a future of solitude.
A debut novel, and the first in a New Adult Fantasy trilogy.

FEATURED AUTHOR VIDEO
To all the aspiring authors out there, this week’s featured video is all about editing your rough draft!
I love Sarra Cannon’s videos because she manages to be informative, motivational, relatable, and inspirational in the way that she shares her ideas. She reminds me that it’s okay to take the time I need to do my story justice, and that the journey is just as important as the destination. (Something I know but of which I often lose sight.) Her tips are thoughtfully presented in a down-to-earth way, and I often find new perspective and direction in honing my own writing methods in a way that fits my personal work style. Having edited the rough draft for my first book already, I still found the advice in this video quite useful and I will likely reference it again when it’s time to work on Book 2.
Enjoy the video! I hope it sparks an urge to start/continue writing!
“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
