So in mid-August I started querying literary agents about my new YA fantasy novel OVER THE RAINBOW, and so far the response has been great. A month into the querying process my book is out to nearly twenty people! It's been really exciting, but I'm still very much in the waiting game, and I'm so thankful I've had a new project to work on while I wait to hear back on Over the Rainbow.
Nearly a year ago I started working on a new YA trilogy, and this week I complete the first draft of the third and final book, THE MONSTER APOCALYPSE! It's been a blast writing the Grisly Trilogy and truly have the best in store for all of you with the final installment, which is, by far, the most insane, action-packed, entertaining scarefest I've ever put down to paper. Unlike anything I've written, even the tension-filled, apocalyptic HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, this one starts in the same second that THE ZOMBIE PLAYGROUND ends, and never stops moving for three hundred pages. I just started writing the final eight chapters tonight, and I'm ecstatic to bring this three-book story to a close.
I'm going to take a short one-week break next week (I'm headed to Washington DC for the first time ever and attending a wedding nearby!) and then will commence on the second draft soon after I get back. I'm bound and determined to get THE MONSTER APOCALYPSE out by mid-December, so I'll be working real hard on the second, third, and fourth drafts these next two months. I can't wait to see what you all think!
And remember, Halloween is just around the corner, so while you wait for the third book of my YA horror trilogy, be sure to check out the first two installments, both available on Amazon for the Kindle and in Paperback!
The Vampire Underground on Amazon
The Zombie Playground on Amazon
And then there's the finale! Vampires, zombies, werewolves, aliens, ghosts, demons, witches, and MORE!!!
The Monster Apocalypse... Coming This Christmas!!
