Works in Progress

MARK: The first draft of a novel, being frantically written for NaNoWriMo:

After her victory over the Internet in 2007, Abbye’s life has plateaued. But demons from her past rise up again when her cousin Penny is taken hostage by an old enemy. Abbye has nowhere to turn but toward Marco, a self-described “graceless paintballer” who lets her in on a secret that just might save Penny’s life. [Sequel to DAVID, the NaNoWriMo story I wrote in 2010.]

STEPHEN: The [I forget what number] draft of a novel, being rewritten at the snail’s pace of 500 words a day:

Maxine wanted to be a normal high schooler, but all that got pushed to the wayside once her friend Stephen had a mysterious accident. In her quest to find out the truth, she gets involved with the wrong people and struggles to stay on the right path. As the story progresses, Maxine becomes more and more confused about what the right path is. [Sequel to RAFAEL.]

  1. Hi! This is really neat and very much looks like something you’d see on a bookstore website.

    How did you make your covers?

    1. Thank you so much! :) I try to take my own photos (or use royalty-free ones if I can’t take a good picture), then crop them and add text and other effects on – I don’t use any fancy software or anything.

  2. Hey, Maggie~

    Quite a blogspot you’ve got here… I’m most particularly invested in the cover designs for your books, they’re great, really! And the stories, they stand out differently from your past stories from FictionPress, though they do give off an air of familiarity.

    Really look forward to seeing your works hit the shelves of bookstores, that’d be awesome!

      1. I’ve high hopes for you, so keep at it!

        That said, I’ve noticed your FP writings have vanished into thin air… what’s up with that? I haven’t even got a chance to get down to the nitty-gritty of XIII, much less finish it.

        1. XIII will eventually come back to FictionPress and probably elsewhere on the Internet… I’m getting ready to start revising it very soon.

  3. I like that you’ve defined your goals, and you’re giving the creative process due time to develop and flourish rather than rushing into publication. All the best in these endeavors and beyond!
