Even though Vitamin C's Friends Forever Graduation song was popular before my graduation year, it was always my anthem in high school, as I am sure it is for many. As my ten year reunion approaches, faster then I am prepared for, I seem to be drawn back to the music and inspirations of my past. Music is one of those inspirations that can put me back into the necessary mindset to write a High School novel. Spoiler: this is the project I am working on. (don't worry I am also working on the next children's book as well.)
I told myself a long time ago that I would finish my novel about High School Prom before my ten year reunion. The story has a fairytale flourish to it, and is filled with my own naïve outlook from back then, despite it being complete fiction. I have even gotten some literary agents feedback and am working on improving my writing skills throughout the story of the Kingdom of Jade. (The title of my book).
Although this book will not be released before my ten year high school reunion, will have the final version finished by then. This one is different from my other stories though, after getting feedback and learning things through my children's book , Polarbe's Hibernation, and my young adult book, Unmasked; I have decided to try again to get a Literary Agent.
I entered two of my books into a contest, and the feedback was enormously helpful. Something I am not getting anywhere else. My career as a writer has come to the point where I need a Literary Agent. That is not to say, I am not going to be releasing more children's stories through my website and kindle; because I am. I am just not going to release Kingdom of Jade, except through an agent and publisher, as well as my Grecian Chronicles.
So here is to my ten year high school reunion and to all of the amazing things to come!
