I was already doing #wipjoy on Facebook, so figured I'd do it on Twitter and Instagram too. Although this is my personal Instagram (I don't have an author Instagram yet). [Day 1: Describe Yourself and Your WIP]
I'm a 30-something Christian girl from Southern California who loves reading, writing, and long walks on the beach (no really). I write mostly speculative fiction, though I'm open to other genres (I've got a historical romance in the works, for instance). The WIP I'm posting about (I've got five WIPs, not counting fanfics and stories I put aside) is called "Music Land Maestress." It's the story of seven girls who are recruited by Allegron Elyden, a knight from the music-filled magical land of Lyra, to fight against the Dissonance Kingdom, a mysterious group devoted to plunging worlds into despair and darkness, then feeding off the negative energy, who have invaded his world. Lyra's only hope lies in seven jewels containing the essences of Lyra's seven princesses, who were mortally wounded in the battle, and Allegron's mission is to find people who resonate with the jewels to take the jewels into their hearts in order to protect them from the Dissonance Kingdom. In return, the girls gain the ability to become magical girls and to help Allegron fight the Dissonance Kingdom, who has followed Allegron and his partner to our world. But between this and the normal issues of being a teenager, can they pull it off? *** The pic is of my 1st draft notebook, which is nearly full, since I've been working on this novel since 2012. (It won me my first NaNoWriMo in 2012!) Thankfully I had more notebooks. I recently decorated the notebook with princess stickers I got at a store called Kidsland in L.A.'s Koreatown.
