Where have I been? I’ve been writing a little novel. It’s about half done. I’m going to post it, as a serial, on a blog. If you’d like to read it, it starts here.
The working title is Nellie and the Coven of Barbo. It’s an adventure story about being a twelve-year-old girl. There will be some witches.
Here’s the (temporary) blurb:
Cornelia (Nellie) Pike has always believed that she’s an extraordinary person meant to accomplish important things. As she begins seventh grade, she’s haunted by the feeling that something’s not right with the world, especially with her friend Lake – and that maybe it’s her destiny to make things right. But one strange event follows another, and Nellie begins to wonder if her friends, and not she, are the extraordinary ones. What’s a girl to do if she suspects that she’s nothing special, and that this might be her greatest gift?
Chapter One is just a few pages long; I hope you’ll go read it. If you like it, I hope you’ll subscribe, and send the link to other people you think might like it, and “Like” the post, and then read Chapter Two.
The story will progress by a chapter or two each week until summer vacation, when I’ll pick up the pace.
I’d love to hear what you think!
