Every step of the way...


The name was chosen. And the winner is...

Katia

A totally rockin' name!!

Over the summer I started a novel called Weaving Magick. Currently I am at a word count of over 45K and I am shooting for $70-80K. It is a YA Paranormal Romance about witches, magick, and a curse. These are my three favorite things to write about. I heart witches and magick.

Because I do everything half-ass backwards, I've been working on my query letter for some time. (If I am going to query a book, I almost always write my query letter before the book is finished.)

This one is a work in progress, and I would love feedback.

Also, I need visuals, so I have a mock up cover that I will post in the future.

Without further ado, what do you guys think of Weaving Magick??? Oh, and thank you for helping me chose her name. It fits!

The Query (draft 1):

Everyone in some way has been touched by magick.

Katia Montgomery’s life is charmed. She is pretty, popular, and dating the basketball star, so then why is she so miserable? Her world felt inadequate, lonely, and she couldn’t shake the feeling that something or someone is missing, which might explain why she couldn’t stop obsessing about the dark and mouthwatering Seth Nightingale. He had become an itch she is dying to scratch. There is so much more to Katia than endless parties, expensive clothes, and her social status—she is a witch.

Seth Nightingale always knew that the sassy and smart mouth Katia was destined to be his. He watched from afar as she went through boyfriends like bubble gum. Chewing them up and spitting them out, while he stood in the shadows, unable to do anything about it, knowing he shouldn’t care. Not a damn thing in his power could change their fates, and that, well, really blows, but it didn’t stop him from dreaming of her—craving her—loving her.

A dark curse hung over their heads, one cast centuries before. Now it is up to Seth to be stronger than ever and resist the one girl he can never have…or risk killing them both. That would just suck, but Katia is making it extremely difficult. She is a powerful allure that he just can’t seem to ignore.

And the curse, it’s out for blood—their blood.

Thoughts?


Oh and did I mention this book is written in duel point of views...hawt!

  1. OK, so like the name. The plot sounds pretty cool, though slightly cliche. There are so many books with the same idea, but I'm putting all my faith into you, knowing you can make a cliche book original. I love books where there is more than one point of view. So, all in all, I'm excited to read it.

  2. I totally agree about it being slightly cliche, and it is something I am going to work on and explore. The good thing about a work-in-progress, nothing is set in stone. Thank so much for your help!!! =)
