Well, for those of you who know me, you know that I am doing the last of my personal
edits on my current Work-In-Progress, Harmony. The current status is I’m in the home stretch, and it’s looking like it’ll be about 80000 words of action, excitement and really wild times.
Harmony, for those that don’t know, is the tale of Kiara Black, Key to her friends. She’s a cop in 2099 Kings Cross, Sydney. The world is a very different place, after a tsunami wiped out the east coast in the ’48 Crash. Sydney is a shattered version of herself, ruled by gangs and the powerful Mayor, Key’s boss. Her job is to control the drugs coming into the sleazy world of a pleasure town like the Cross. When a bust goes wrong, she and her partner are exposed to a new drug called Harmony. Instantly addictive, and withdrawal having deadly consequences the question arises, what will she do when she finds the source.
This story started as a NaNoWriMo story in 2014 though the roots for the story were set down in a much stranger time. 1984. Yes sometimes an idea needs to percolate for a while. And I am now getting it up to the stage of spending money on it. Want to recommend an editor, leave a comment below. We’re all friends here.
These last few chapters need the most work, especially with me changing up a few things and butterfly effecting my plot. In the next few weeks you’ll be hearing a lot more.
So, soon I’ll be seeking some beta readers, and you can contact me in the usual manner or comment below.
Serious Sas and Messy Magda by Marianne de Pierres
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Serious Sas and Messy Magda is a picture book for kids that works on so many levels. Without preaching, or feeling like a lecture, the fun tale of Sas and her messy mother Magda helps to teach kids it’s okay to be different, whether you’re a clean freak or a messy mum. Along the way we learn lessons about accepting others, accepting ourselves and loving those in our lives, even if they’re different.
I thoroughly recommend this book for all children. A lovely, enjoyable book with great art by Rachel Annie Bridgen.
