Unfortunately, sometimes, small time publishers can be the worst kind of people.
In anticipation of the October release of Tricia Drammeh’s young adult paranormal novel, The Seance, we’ve got a fun giveaway in store for you. It’s easy to enter and completely free. Entry is as simple as liking a few Facebook Pages. For 10 extra entries, visit the Honeyshadow Premade Cover website and select the cover you think Tricia chose for her book. On August 10th, we’ll reveal the cover and the winners of the giveaway.
What’s The Seance about? Here’s a hint:
Ninth grade can be a nightmare when you don’t fit in at school, your crush chooses someone else, and your parents tell you they’re having a new baby. Abby was prepared for normal high school problems. She wasn’t prepared for a demon.
Abby has always been fascinated by the paranormal, but after an ill-fated séance, she discovers not all Spirits are benign. A dark entity unleashed during the summoning sets out to destroy Abby, and within days, she loses her best friend, incurs the wrath of her parents, and becomes a prisoner in her own home. With time quickly running out, she assembles an unlikely group of helpers: the most hated guy in school, a retired psychic, and the cute clerk from her favorite bookstore. Unless the demon is defeated, Abby and her new baby brother won’t stand a chance.
I swear. I’m only dead-ish.
I know I haven’t updated in about 40 berjillion years, but life sorta smacked me upside the head and I had a crisis with book 2. I’ve essentially scrapped the entire thing, and am going with an entirely new plot, once I get around to writing it. Taking a break from Redhaven to work on little side projects whenever I feel like it. I know I’ve only written one book, but I’ve spent months and months trying to figure out book fucking 2, and it’s pissing me off, so I’m letting it sit. It’ll come out eventually, just… not right now.
Come October I’ll be going to school full time, 5 days a week, so that’s going to hamper writing time even more.
I hate my job, also. (Hence the “fuck it! i’m going to school” change.)
Fuck you, money! Blurgh.
Other than being poor and writerly-frustrated, I’m actually okay. Just doing other things. (Not that anyone particularly cares all that much, but just thought I’d make an update.)
