Shadow in the Sea

Readers will return to Windwaithe Island once again. When sixteen-year-old Sadelyn Hanson washes up on the shores of Windwaithe Island, her beauty and the strange marks on her wrist make superstitious locals suspect she is a mermaid. Feigning amnesia, Sade hides a far worse secret: she was sailing to her own murder trial when she was thrown overboard by the real killer, the cunning and cruel Captain Westwood.

Sade's quiet effort to rebuild her life on the island is threatened when she meets an actual young merman. Unable to speak his language, Sade still longs for the warm companionship he offers, despite the locals' dire legends about merfolk and their dark magic. But her confused feelings for the impossible boy become the least of her problems when Captain Westwood's ship docks at Windwaithe. With nowhere to escape, Sade must trust in the one person who doesn't fear the merfolk. A woman who had dealings with them herself—years ago

Murphy's Law Strikes Again

Having finally received my editorial letter full of revisions for my book, I decided to take a week off of work and do nothing but write. So what happens? I get a raging cold. Talk about ironic. I've spent all week feeling feverish,hacking, coughing, dripping, aching--AND writing. I would stay in bed all day trying to multitask between writing and getting better. I've been typing and sucking down fruit juice at an alarming rate. Despite the cold, I still got a lot of writing done, especially when the coughing kept me awake at night. I'm really pleased with the changes I've made to the story. I hope my editor feels the same. Here's hoping!

A Picture Says It All

My editor had me visit the website of an artist they are considering for the cover of my book. Their artwork is GORGEOUS! I don't want to jinx it so I won't write the name of the illustrator until it's a sure thing. I'm really getting excited now. My editor also told me that as of this moment the release date for my book is May 1, 2010. It could change but it should be around that time. They still haven't decided on a title yet. *sigh*
