Starting a New Story

It's been a crazy couple of months getting ready to send out my last novel EXISTENCE. I have it out to a few agents and publishers and now I'm playing the waiting game.

Waiting is just the best thing in the world, right? I don't know about you guys but I can't just sit still and wait (see this post for further details) so I'm starting a new story. I hope to have it done well before this baby comes at the beginning of September. Needless to say I'm hoping those who bestow muses see fit to give me and extra boost in the next couple of months.

Anyway here's a little blurb about the new story if your interested --

Dakota Russell has never placed a toe outside of the two-thousand square foot prison where her Elders insist she must stay in order to avoid danger. But when a boy is lying unconscious on the other side of the river she gathers her courage to step outside of the safe zone.

She never believed in the old religion about the Puhagant who can wield powers unknown to most modern men, until she discovers that she is one of them. The land she has never left protected her from discovering these powers, but the old magic no longer holds.

To make matters worse, the unconscious boy, Carter, is being hunted by his father for knowing too much about a plot to start the next world war. Armed with the ability to connect and find other people, Dakota and Carter take off on journey to find themselves, and save what remains of the peace between the Untied States and the rest of the world.

So there you have it. It should be fun to write :)

Anyone else playing the waiting game? What are you working on?
