Update on YA Project


My apologies for not being very active here lately. I have been working my butt off on Camp NaNoWriMo (yes I know, I said I would never do that again, but I did it for my friends), which is why I haven’t posted much, and… OMG… I actually succeeded this time. I set a goal for myself of 30K words, and now I am at 38K! I am so proud and happy that my inspiration has finally come back in full force and the words are pouring out of me like syrup from a maple tree. This is probably the best story idea I’ve ever had, too. There’s so much I can do with it, and I really haven’t heard many like it.

I’m keeping most of the specifics under wraps for now, but for the moment I’ll tell you that this novel is about a fifteen-year-old girl named Madison, the daughter of a rock star who retired to raise her and give her a normal childhood. After fifteen years out of the spotlight, he decides he wants to move to LA to restart his career, and she has to move from the only home she has ever known in the Kentucky countryside. Mads is a little less than graceful at times, and she makes a lot of blunders when she first moves to LA (like accidentally ending up with a pumpkin orange spray tan). She documents her mishaps in a vlog that gets a lot of attention and helps her take control of her public image as a new-found celebrity. The title of the vlog is also the title of the book, which I will not be revealing just yet 😉

It is so much fun writing this book and seeing where it goes, but it’s also a lot of hard work, so I’ll probably still not be posting super often. I really. really want to get this book ready to self-publish by the end of this year. We’ll see how it goes!

Thanks for following and have a great rest of your weekend 🙂
