...is the name of my good friend Abby Annis' YA sci-fi novel. And Embrol is in trouble. How, you ask? Well, you'll just have to read her opening that should be up soon at Fiction Groupie for today's installment of the Beta Club!
Okay, I'm lying, maybe her first 750 words aren't going to tell you anything about Embrol, but I piqued your interest, didn't I? ;) What is Embrol? Will Livy accept her destiny, which seems to be inextricably intertwined with that of Jack, the guy who accidentally killed her mother in a car accident?
The best way to find out the answers of these questions is to give Abby some feedback on her opening today, that oh-so-important opening that is the first impression we offer up to agents of our writing. Then maybe you'll be able to feel the embossed letters of EMBROL on the cover, crack open the spine, and read for yourself. Helping others get their stories told is why we're all here, right?
“All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.” ~George Orwell
I'm a YA writer who delves into urban fantasy, paranormal and romance, and who loves reading good books almost as much as writing them.
When not writing—or working—I enjoy daydreaming, drinking tea, and walking in cemeteries. I used to spend the rest of my time checking my inbox for manuscript requests, but am now proudly represented by Rosemary Stimola, of Stimola Literary Studio.
