My Book

is nearly done. Been working on it since summer 08, originally in an artist colony in France, then periodically in New York, and, after a number of rewrites, edits, etc., it’s now officially in beta. Huzzah.

Not gonna talk much about it, aside to say that it’s YA (young adult), but not in the vein of Harry Potter, more Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and Pullman, along with Twilight, although it’s way less retarded, flowery and “vampirey.” No blood suckers in this one, and no magic spells or orcs or magical closets or anything of the sort. If anything, it’s more science fiction than fantasy, although it has elements of both.

Sometimes it’s easier for me to think in terms of movies than books, so I want to say it’s like Juno (although the narrator is WAY less annoying and verbose) meets Edward Scissorhands. It’s modern yet Gothic, funny yet dark, a love story but also an action-adventure. Basically, it’s got it all.

Will reveal more when the time is right. For now, just know that’s it’s almost finished, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
