Untitled (A YA/Adult Thriller): I wrote my first novel during Nano ’11. It’s an thriller about a Mexican drug dealer whose world falls apart when someone close to him betrays him to the authorities. Many years later, he finally finds out who it was that turned him in along with a life-changing secret. This novel is currently untitled. It’s an idea I ran with and is a genre I never thought I would write in. But I’m glad I did write it. It taught that I can be a writer if I stick to it.
It’s 50K words and needs a lot of work. After I write my second novel, I’ll come back to it. There’s a lot of research and revision that it needs to make it the best that it can be. Then, I want to get it critiqued and will improve on it more.
Minai and Kiro (A YA Fantasy): This is the working title for my second novel. It’s a fantasy, more of what I’ve always wanted to write. It’s about a young girl who has promised to marry a powerful lord in order to get her family out of great debt. However, she is in love with a slave who wants to run away with her. The nation is also at war and her younger brother will be forced to fight (and likely die) if they stay. She has a tough choice to make.
This story is still in the planning stage. I’m stumped on it right now so it’s on the back burner.
Jimmy (YA Contemporary Romance): This is the working title for third novel. It’s contemporary realistic young adult fiction. It’s about a brother and sister who stick together during their parents’ separation and adolescence’s challenges.
This is what I’m working on right now. It’s in the first draft stage and a story extremely close to my heart. Might turn this into a series. Not sure.
Run (YA Thriller?): This is a new idea that’s recently taken over my mind. Can’t say a lot about it yet except that it’s big (for me, at least), and it’s never been done before that I know of. I’m itching to get started on it.
What are you working on right now?
