first draft of aletheia done!
This feels awesome. I'm going to throw some grains of salt on the following comment by saying I always feel like this, but... pretty sure this is the best novel I've ever written. It's also my first YA book, first first-person story, and first all-female point of view. A lot of firsts.
And it's awesome. At least, it felt awesome. And early readers who've gone through the first few chapters say it's awesome. So I here, humbly, say this book could be awesome.
Sadly, it still has a way to go before you can find it in your local bookstore. As in many rounds of revision, discussion, and then some time in submission to find an agent and editor.
But all of these will only make it more awesome. In the meantime, I am looking for a few first-readers, especially if you can relate to queer or gender-fluid characters. Hit me up!
Otherwise, sit back and wait impatiently. Aletheia is coming.
1. And she may or may not, based on how the last scene turned out, be called Aletheia of the Iron Staff.
2. And if you want a taste earlier than that, peep this early sketch I posted.
