Thursday's Chidren - FINISHED THE BOOK!

I'm so excited! I finished my book, Eventide, last Friday morning at 8:49.

I don't think I've ever been more pleased with something I've written. I hope that's a good sign.

I often use visual cues while writing, so I thought I'd share some of the things that inspired me while writing it. And the (very rough) blurb is below the pictures.

Also, the act of finishing it has motivated me to start the next one in the series. Images and phrases that I wouldn't allow into my consciousness while I was finishing up this story are now jumping up and down hollering, "Pick me! Pick me!"

It's funny how finishing one book can immediately inspire you to start a new one. I'm just gonna roll with it. Why look a gift idea in the mouth. ;)








Devon Greer has a secret, and it might just kill her.

Responsible for the death of her best friend and an outcast in her community because of it, she’s got even bigger problems. She’s pretty sure she’s losing her mind. Despite the fact that Rachel was buried four months ago, Devon has been seeing her everywhere. And she’s not alone.

In the wilds of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Devon encounters the impossible—white stags, otherworldly warriors, changelings and the Faery Court of the Sidhe. And most of them want her dead.

Devon’s got one chance to put things right. One chance to save Rachel. If she can survive long enough to do it.

  1. Sounds like a cool story! Love the imagery too. Did you do anything to celebrate? I'm always torn at the end of a book-start writing a sequel or move on to something entirely different. So far I've gone with Plan B, ever hopeful that at some point I'll sell a book, it will do well, and I'll get to spend time with some of my favorite characters again, lol.

    1. My friend took me out for breakfast that morning right after I finished it - so basically, I celebrated with bacon - lol!

      I'm still in the torn stage of deciding which direction I want to take, but happily I have a lot of Christmas gifts to make which will also involve a lot of story pondering.

  2. Congrats!

    That's a really funny thought — sometimes ending a book can provide the energy and inspiration for starting the next one!

    Go for it, and as long as the inspiration's flowing, keep going. :)

    1. I'm currently working on outlines while making holiday gifts. Apparently, I thrive on multitasking. o.O
