I am excited to announce the launch of this newly designed website! Please let me know what you think.
I’m also thinking of forming a small team of beta readers—readers who are interested in reading chapters of my upcoming debut novel The Oyster Thief and providing feedback. It’s a great opportunity for avid readers who want to influence a live work. If you’re interested in being a beta reader, please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the November 2017 update, I talked a little about Coralline and Izar, the two protagonists in The Oyster Thief. The story features some animal characters too, in addition to human ones. (Yes, it’s still a book for adults, but it’s an underwater odyssey and I’m finding it great fun to have animal characters in the story!)
The animal characters are based on true traits of their species. One of them is a seahorse.
The term “behind the scenes” generally applies to film, and it makes sense literally—we’re going behind the scenes that we see on screen. Well, the term is also very applicable to fiction. My debut novel The Oyster Thief consists of about a hundred scenes, and I can tell you that there’s a lot going on behind them—much more than I’d ever bargained for.
I am excited to announce that I’m working on a second book, The Oyster Thief.
What is it? An underwater odyssey.
It’s the most creative project I’ve ever embarked on, and it’s been pushing my imagination to the limit. I’m excited to be working with my editor Jessica Case and the team at Pegasus Books, with whom I was also fortunate to work on Project Animal Farm.
Stay tuned in the next months for a brand-new website and newsletter, and big perks and giveaways.
So…what’s the book about?
