So let’s talk about my first book, Our Moon.
Random fact: every time I think, type or say that title, I always wonder if I accidentally said “New Moon” by mistake, thank you Stephenie Meyer! Another random fact: I devoured the Twilight series books in less than a week. I even called in sick one day because I couldn’t stop reading.
Anyway, Our Moon, has been floating around in my brain for years!! It feels so good to finally get it out. I’ve written many versions of the story in my head, with the working title of “Memory.” I’m still not sold on the title Our Moon, but it is seriously so hard to give a title to a book. I almost wanted to call it “Ally” because she’s the main character in the book and that would be easier than thinking of something clever.
Our Moon is about Ally Monroe. She is 19 when she wakes from a year-long coma and discovers that she has amnesia due to head trauma suffered in the car accident. Her two brothers are there to help her out, and their band. The first part of the book focuses on Ally getting used to her sort of new life, asking questions, trying to find answers, etc. The second part of the book is kind of a twist, it tells the beginning of the story, the before the accident part. So the book is split in part one (after) and part two (before). That was something I decided to do at the last minute and I kind of like the way it turned out. And that’s all I’m saying because I don’t want to give too much else away.
I really hope you enjoy the story! It’s going to be about 200 pages, give or take. I am doing some final edits now before I send it off to betas and then ARCs. My goal is to have the book published electronically by April 7th. I hope to publish on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iBooks.
