I’ve started posting chapters of my current draft of The Painted Sea on Wattpad! I am very excited about this, since finally the beginnings of the story I had back from NaNoWriMo 2011 have come together and I’m now happy with it and know what kind of story I want to tell. I started and trashed three drafts and was certain that the story would never come into fruition until I picked this up again last fall.
Here is the blurb for the novel:
Before there was a Wendy, there was an Aimee. In the summer of 1788, Aimee Dubucq de Rivery is on her way home to Martinique from France…until a storm blows the ship she is aboard off course into a strange new sea, only to be rescued to Peter Pan and lured to a mysterious island called Neverland. Determined to return home, Aimee escapes from Peter and seeks the protection of Captain James Hook while she tries to find a way out of Neverland. But neither she nor the pirate captain expected that love would blossom between them. And one day, someone would remember poor, unhappy Hook…and shed the tears for him that would save his life.
I’ll post updates about new chapters added to Wattpad and status updates as often as I can. I’m still a little nervous about this, but I’m making myself put it out there.
