WIP It Good Blogfest – My Current Project

20113-the2bwip2bit2bgood2bblogfestThis is my response to DL Hammons of Cruising Altitude 2.0, who came up with a great way to allow us to gain some attention for our current Works In Progress. He suggests the topics I have in bold below so we can show off our project and possibly get some cross exposure and potential Beta readers or critique partners. I have just secured a critique partner recently, but I think all of us would benefit from another set of eyes to catch what we assume is right but just needs another perspective.

The project I highlight is my most complete one. I have two others I expect to dive into between now and year’s end. If I get a chance I will highlight them in another of these show and tell sessions.

WIP Title: The Family Secrets

Word Count (projected/actual so far):  95,000/95,954 (but getting ready to do major re-edit)

Genre: Young Adult Mystery

How long have you been working on it?: two years

Elevator Pitch (if you came across an agent in an elevator ride, what couple of lines would you use to summarize your book): Secret Rock is a place where tourist come to write down their secrets and forget them forever. When Casey Ritter finds the skeleton of a long missing girl she inside the she has no idea what it will do to her new love interest’s family.

Brief Synopsis (250 words or less): Casey Ritter is a promising graduate student in forensics who is just looking for a restful summer vacation. On a visit to her uncle’s lakeside small town she meets a boy that will change her life forever. When Casey visits Secret Rock, the place where secrets go to die, she finds more than she bargains for. The skeletal remains of a missing girl, deception, intrigue and love of a lifetime combine to toss Casey on a roller coaster ride of emotions.

    I think your premise has real promise. Not too many YA Mysteries being shown off in this blogfest. Good luck with it! 🙂
