First Draft – COMPLETE! (And an announcement . . .)

I am SO excited to say that the first draft of my new WIP is DONE. Now, of course, the work actually begins, but I love the editing process, so, who cares?

But what is really exciting is . . .

. . . the book . . .

. . . has a name.Β πŸ˜ƒ


Fate of a Prince is (most likely) the official title. Now for a rough draft synopsis:

In a land controlled by the power of four immortal sorcerers, a young prince learns that he was chosen before birth to be among those sacrificed to the usurpers.

Lance always hated the sacrifice – now, having learned of his fate, he despises it. And that his own parents could have marked him for death is unthinkable. If there is any chance of circumventing the decree, it must lie with his strange young servant.

Kyden is a restless, nimble-fingered sorcerer, running from his past as fast as he can. He never planned to wind up indebted to the prince and working as a servant, nor did he plan on counting Lance as a friend – a friend he is not willing to watch die.

Fate of a Prince

I have to say, I love this book. Which is a weird thing for me to say because I usually don’t like what I write, especially the first draft. . But the characters are very near and dear to my heart, and I see a lot of myself in Kyden. To celebrate finishing this round, I’ve created two aesthetic boards, one for each main character.

Sum Up

This is a YA fantasy/magic novel with themes of brotherhood, loyalty, forgiveness, and self-sacrifice. If you’re familiar with BBC’s Merlin, you can kind of get the idea. There is a lot of work still to be done, but I’m optimistic that Fate of a Prince will be a solid book.

Meanwhile, have you snagged your copy of my debut novel Promised Land yet? Check it out on Amazon! The reviews have been great, and people are really enjoying it. If you HAVE read Promised Land already, could I ask a favor? Could you take one minute to write a review? Be totally honest! There is no better way to help others find this book than to write reviews. Thank you!

What is your current WIP about? Who is your favorite character in it? How’s the writing (or editing) process going? Let’s chat!

  1. I really want to read this book! The Merlin TV show is literally the best show I’ve ever seen. It is the only one I watched the entire way through two times in like a month!
