What am I working on? I get asked that a lot. While I have two partially completed young adult novels in the works, right this minute, I’m doing revisions on my last Texas Justice novel, Don’t Look Back, which is an adult suspense. Then, I’m half way finished with another adult novel, a humorous romantic suspense, which is also part of a trilogy.
I was hoping to get one of the young adult books done first, but my agent—yes, you can blame her—requested I do the adult books first.
The two young adult novels are both going to be series. The first one, Sole Survivor, is about a seventeen-year-old girl who is the sole survivor of a plane crash. Since her parents died in the crash, her uncle becomes her guardian. Then, she finds herself drawn to a boy who is also the sole survivor of his family. Both of them start experiencing premonition dreams and learn they have the ability to change fate and even might have the power to bring their families back.
The other book, Glimmer, is about a young girl who discovers she is a descendant of a fallen Grim Reaper. Whenever she bumps into someone who is close to death, she gets visions of how they will die. Not yet understanding her powers, it turns her world upside down. Does she tell people, “Don’t go swimming in that lake today, don’t drive on that freeway, don’t get on that plane?” Does she do it even when she knows people will think she’s crazy? And what happens when the boy she loves won’t listen to her?
So while I’ve written several chapters of both of these young adult stories, I’m hoping to finish the edits on my Texas Justice book first and finish the next adult novel before diving back into the young adult novels.
Which idea do you like best, Glimmer or Sole Survivor?
