In case you hadn’t noticed, my new novel, BECOMING, is out a few days early.
Note: All pre-orders were cancelled. If you did pre-order it, you will have to go to amazon and purchase it now.
Okay, all that out of the way….Let’s talk about the book.
I started writing the original version of this story back in April of 2013. It was started as a serial novel for the Jukepop Serials website. Somewhere along the way, that version of the story fell apart. I set it aside for a year and a half before picking it back up and completing a draft on my computer. While doing revisions, I ran into more problems in the story that I just hated. I tried my hand at two different manuscripts, trying like hell to save this creepy story, but they all failed. Frustrated, I gave up.
And then, someone wrote to me that had been reading the original serial version. She asked me what happened to the story. Would it ever see the light of day.
I was inspired by that message. I started writing the story from scratch. I used a few of the old scenes and most of the characters I’d creating, but the story itself changed. The final result is the fully realized novel that I’d always hoped BECOMING could be.
And major thanks go to Jason Lynch for another amazing cover. And to Erin Sweet-Al Mehairi for busting her hump (yet again) for me.
The story takes place in Avalon, Maine, a quiet town near Jade Lake. Centering around three main characters, 14-year-old Michele Cote, Sheriff Shane Davis, and a broken and battered soul named, Clint Truman.
Michele’s best friend is pulled into the lake. Is he dead? Or is he something more? Soon, members of this small community begin to disappear–one-by-one–only to return changed.
There is a beautiful creature deep within the waters of Jade Lake and she wants to share her gifts…let her in and you will become.
Michele, Clint, and Sheriff Davis will have to fight to save their town, but when you see the glowing eyes is it already to late?
I invite you to Avalon. Come to Jade Lake and see what she has to offer.
BECOMING is out now.
