Book One Awaits Final Edits

Book One Awaits Final Edits

I’ve completed some serious edits to Book One. Jen will now be telling us her story in the first person. Since the original manuscript was written in third person perspective, it was not easy.

It’s a little Sci-Fi, a little Young Author, a little Romance, and some good political intrigue thrown in for fun. It was everything I like in a book and the exact audience I’m writing for.
