Today I will be answering the second question about my WIP in The List posted here. The hope is I will be finished by the time I reach the end of the questions.
However, first it’s my please to be a part of the Cover Reveal for Fireblood, a YA novel by Trisha Wolfe.
What do you think? Fabulous right? I can’t tell you how exciting I am for this release. I’m a huge fan and this story sounds fascinating.
Here’s a bit more on Trisha and this exciting new novel:
Release Date: 2013
From Spencer Hill Press
Book Description from Goodreads:
To save a kingdom, Zara must choose between a prince who could be the answer and a rising rebellion that threatens to take control.
When Zara Dane is chosen to marry Prince Sebastian Hart, son of the man who ordered her father’s capture, Zara knows she must fight to save everything she loves from ruin.
Being betrothed to the prince means a life trapped behind the towering stone walls of the Camelot-forged realm. Under the watchful eye of the prince's first knight, Sir Devlan Capra, changing her future becomes difficult.
When an unlikely rebel reveals the truth about the deadly secrets that fuel King Hart’s twisted world, Zara’s path to rescue her father becomes clouded by deception. The Rebels clear her path by forcing Zara’s hand with an ultimatum: sway Prince Sebastian to join the Rebels, convincing him of his father’s evil nature, or they will take him out.
But Zara is uncertain about a future under the Rebels’ command and where the prince’s heart truly lies. She must decide who to trust, what to believe, and what she’s truly fighting for before the king destroys all of Karm, including her heart.

This week wasn’t very productive wise. I only managed to add 5,000 words to my WIP.
Refresh of last week
What is the working title of your book?
The working title is Fracture.
My question this week: Where did the idea come from for the book?
This is a bit complicated. Fracture is a ghost story with a twist. I’ve always wondered what exactly are ghosts? why do some people see them and some don’t? Why is it some people claim to have seen ghosts of the living or that they often appear in different forms? Some are more substantial, some can interact, some are like a movie being played over and over with apparently no awareness of the living world.
I believe in the possibility we live in just one of an infinite number of dimensions. Some are alternate physical worlds where another us is living out a different life, and some spiritual. I also believe when our physical life ends that we pass over into one of the spiritual worlds. When people see a ghost or feel a presence, it’s the thinning of the veil separating these world. Some people are more sensitive to it than others.
It’s these questions and beliefs that formed the basis for the idea that later became Fracture.
