The Color of Water~

Well peeps, I've finally gone and submitted my latest novel, The Color of Water, to a publisher. It's been a long time coming!  I think the original idea for the story hit me back in 2010 while visiting the North Carolina coast. I've been working on it off and on ever since, but this last year I told myself: "Enough! This will get finished and get out there!"

If you haven't guessed, it's a paranormal, young adult tale with pirates, and ghosts, and a bit of romance. Beaufort, North Carolina - one of the three oldest towns in North Carolina - is the setting. It's perfect because the town's history and plentiful ghost stories provide a deliciously gothic, Southern location.
I don't want to give too much away since I'm currently querying it, but if I find that no one wants to publish paranormal stories right now, I'll self publish. I've worked too hard to let stuff languish unseen anymore. I write to be read. :) So stay tuned, dear reader!  The best is yet to come~


  1. Yay! I love ghost stories! Congrats on finishing. :)

  2. Thank you so very much CJ! Only another writer truly understands what it means to a writer to finally type "the end" and send one's baby off into query oblivion. The good news is, I've held onto this one so long, I believe I've finally detached from it. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. :) Meanwhile, on to the next project!
