Behind the Story

Why This Story

I wrote this novel as my first attempt with National Novel Writing Month. I went through the efforts of writing a first draft (and winning NaNoWriMo), rewriting, pitching, getting rejected, and deciding what to do next.

It has now been shelved for rewrites because I think there are some good nuggets of writing for a first try at a formal fiction novel. Stay tuned!
