So, welcome to my blog. Eventually, I’ll be putting pictures of Mary, Lizzie, James, and of course the most important person, me. Ok, not really the most important. So, I was trying to figure out what my first post should be about and figured that I would state the progress of my book is going.
The title of my book is “The Amethyst of Esam Alee.” It is supposed to be the first of either a 3 or 4 book series. No, I don’t intend to be like Robert Jordan and write umpteen books and then die before I can truly finish my work. In “The Amethyst of Esam Alee” there are 3 storylines that people follow: 1. Eli and the Dwarves 2. Lizzie, Alex, and the Trolls 3. Val Merk. I originally started the book in 2005 and wrote only a few chapters. In 2006, I restarted the story deciding that the first few chapters I had written were just not what I was wanting. So from 2006-2008 I wrote the first draft, the majority of it being done between July and December 2008. I started on the 2nd draft earlier this year. When I got to a certain point in the book, I wasn’t sure how I really wanted the chapters ordered, so I separated them into the three storylines. Currently, I have completed Eli’s storyline as well as Lizzie’s. I started on Val’s, which I intend to only be four chapters long. I am currently on the 2nd one. I will go through the entire book at least 2 more times to make sure I catch every error and give every useful detail. Of course, people don’t like that it’s ending in a cliff hanger. Oh well 🙂
Once it is done, I intend to send my manuscript to at least 15 agents. Hopefully one of them will like it. Or, if you ask a few people I know “they will like it.”
