BLACK WATERS

Book #1 in the Songstress Trilogy
The Story...

Sixteen-year-old mermaid Abby Carson thought she had her secret under control. Who cares if after “the change” took place, she became so beautiful that all the girls at school hated her. And the boys, well, when they look at her, hate isn't exactly what's going through their minds.

But when Abby witnesses a teenage girl's murder by a preternatural creature off the coast of Cape Cod, her carefully controlled life slips into chaos. Hiding in the water until the killer's gone is a must. Getting spotted by Brian Baker, a boy from school, isn't. Neither is falling in love with him. That definitely wasn't part of the plan.

Combine all this with the mysterious mermaid box Abby receives as a postmortem birthday gift from her dad, and she's pulled even deeper into the world of shades and monsters. Once the full force of Abby's deadly siren powers are revealed, the only one she can hurt more than herself is the boy she loves.

So I Just Joined NaNoWriMo....


I just joined NaNoWriMo, which, for those of you who don't know, stands for National Novel Writing Month. It's basically where you, the intrepid though possibly crazy writer, try to write the entire rough draft of a novel in a single month. (What? you say. Is that even possible? ) Well, I sincerely hope it is because this November I am going to try and plough through the rough draft of Evening Tide, the next book in my series. I promise to do my best and keep everyone posted on my progress. Though who am I kidding? The only one reading this blog is ME. (Insert maniacal sobbing.)


Anyway, I'm super psyched (read incredibly terrified) about this new venture. My biggest concern is that my typing borders on ghastly, so I know it's going to slow me down. But I can't wait to start-- just three more days to go. Yea!!! (Or maybe scary ahhhhh! What have I just done!!!!)
