Genre: YA (toss up between YA supernatural and YA fantasy)
How long have you been working on it? 4 months
Brief Synopsis (300 words or less): In this town no one new ever stays and the locals are here for life. People talk of leaving, but rarely do. Those who leave never come back and never contact anyone left behind. It is a simple town, with simple people. Andrea Callum wants nothing more than to graduate and get out of Barbours. She's made all the right choices: perfect grades, good friends, plans for her future. The last week of school was supposed to be easy, no surprises; then one afternoon Andrea meets a guy with silver eyes and a voice that has plagued her dreams. He says he just needs a ride - nothing more. One ride in a town she thought she knew by heart and her whole world collapses. Visions of grotesque murders, confusing ancient symbols and prophecies surround her. Andrea discovers that she is more than a good student - she is a talisman and her family has secrets that go beyond the limits of Barbours - secrets that go beyond the limits of the universe. For the first time in her eighteen years she is faced with the opportunity of leaving Barbours.
Leaving is the one thing she wants - to do so she has to choose who will be left behind facing darkness and who will travel toward the light. Are you looking for a Beta Reader? Once this round of revisions is complete - then for sure! Be sure to check out all the other WIP-its!!!!
Adopting is awesome. It's a beautiful journey that is filled with every emotion possible. We are just beginning this trip, this adventure towards expanding our family. This journey is also VERY expensive. The cost of adopting is from $25,000 to $40,000.00 just to bring our sweet child home. For us, no monetary amount is unreachable with faith, work and the loving support of the 'village' around us. We will be fundraising like crazy over the next months. There will be fun giveaways, donuts, exciting events and the ongoing production of my Art for Adoption personal projects. The Etsy store I have created (a work in progress itself) is linked above. We also have added the Donation link above - there will be some pretty cool events linked to it coming up. We also will be adding links to some other sites that aid in fundraising for adopting families. As those appear so will more information. For now, we thank you for visiting our Kingdom and for supporting our journey. Your prayers & thoughts are blessings we never expected, are grateful for and excited to share with the child we will bring home to us all.
I am a writer looking to see my name in a bookstore one day! I am cheerful to a fault. People actually think that I am on some sort of medication that makes me perky most of the time, Building my bridges, not ripping them down.
I treasure my friends, they are my family. To me my closest friends are always referred to as Darl'n, Gorgeous, Cutie, or Beautiful. I love to read just about anything and pride myself on a well versed vocabulary. I love shopping & am an impulse shopper: purse,shoes & jewelry. I love my family and strive to forge close relationships with them as often as possible. I have a weakness for animals.
Alabama Football is a religion in my house, that on Saturdays, I faithfully attend every fall.
I love to cook, working during the week limits the experiments but on the weekends watch out!Southern heritage in all forms tends to make me very nostalgic. I have an emotional connection to my surroundings that is astounding to myself sometimes.
Im a Disney fanatic!!! Lived there, love it there, want a house there!! We got married there :) O
