Happy October everybody! One of my favorite months of the year.
Edits are finally done! At least on this draft. Still waiting for one of my readers to get back to me before I do one final edit. Then I get to start looking for an agent. I hope sweating bullets is normal for a first book!
I’ve got a good amount written for the sequel as well, which will likely be much gorier than this novel. Not to mention the addition of a few more adult themes. I plan to get a good chunk of it written during NaNo this November too. Still trying to come up with a name for this series!
But enough with my sanity checks, here’s the snippet:
Setup: Fred is about to let Suzie know one of his biggest secrets. He’s understandably nervous, and Suzie isn’t so sure she wants to know.
“What in the world could a stupid book have in it that’s so important?”
“You just can’t understand, Suzie. You wouldn’t believe me even if I told you.”
Suzie stared at him for a moment, wondering if perhaps he had a point. She honestly couldn’t imagine any book that was worth getting a regular beating. Still Fred was her only friend, and for all she knew, she was his.

Intriguing Six….good luck with your edits and agent search…very exciting!
Thanks Christine! At this point I think the edits are coming to a close. Cleaned up some major plot holes in the last edit batch, so I’m curious to see what my two kind editors say the second time around. I’m excited & nervous at the same time for my agent search, though I hear that’s pretty normal.
Thank you for dropping by!
Great hook, Marlena. I want to read more about the stupid book!
Thanks Randi! I’m glad you enjoyed it – and that it caught your attention. Here’s hoping the novel as a whole is just as interesting when it comes out. 😉
