So, this is happening...

It feels a little more official now-- I am writing a book! I even have my very own blog. After putting off my dreams for so many years, it feels surreal to be doing all of this. I am in talks about a cover design, and joining writers groups. I have an official author Facebook page. Now, I just need to write some more! I know that my crit partners (one who happens to be my super awesome sister, and the other a great friend), are probably wondering why I am wasting time on a blog instead of handing them more chapters. Well, I promise to get to that, I can hear my muse calling my name. But first, I want to tell everyone that is supporting me in this venture thank you. Some of you have believed in me from the begining, and others have simply supported me in anything I do. I love you guys.

Okay, I am done with the mushy stuff. I want to tell you a little bit about the book that I am working on now.

It is a Young Adult Urban Fantasy set in Savannah, Ga. Alastriana, Ree as her friends call her, has not always had an easy life. Her older brother died in a drunk driving accident a few years ago, her mother named her Alastriana (that can't be easy on any school aged kid), and her crush of two years thinks he is her surrogate older brother. But the trouble doesn't stop there, she is also seeing things that aren't real and feeling emotions that aren't hers. Just when she decides that she may be losing her mind, a man that looks like death shows up asking for her. Asking for her by name. "Give us the Alastriana."

I can't wait to share more with you. This is such an exciting time for me!


  1. Wow. Nicole, that sounds awesome. Can't wait till you finish it so I can read it. :D

  2. This sounds really good Nichole. Can't wait to read more about it :)

  3. OOOOHHHHHHHHH!!! I can't wait!! :):):):)

  4. Pretty good for a rough draft but work on the characters. They aren't fully fleshed out yet, make them pop out in my mind. The beginning needs a little work, i was sort of confused. But i love the way you write and it seemed to me to be an original work so far ( please don't make it into another Harry potter or twilight or some other popular book out there. I hope this helps. I wrote a prologue of a novella and posted it here: , give your honest opinion on it also. Ciao!
