Hello everyone! I have finally stopped fiddling with the first chapter of my short story, Lucy Crisp And The Vanishing House and it’s all set up and ready for your reading enjoyment. For all you spelling and grammar lovers, I should mention that my book hasn’t crossed paths with a professional editor yet. My husband John did do wonders though with what I gave him. Imagine scraps of wrinkled paper with illegible scribbles, run- on sentences and so many grammar mishaps that I actually heard him wince on a few occasions.
I should also mention that I haven’t decided on a cover yet, I’m still having fun with them so possibly by the time the book is complete we can do some sort of vote for the cover. I will be releasing three to four chapters of the book online (there are six in total) and then I will publish it in physical book form, either myself or I’ll find a publisher wild enough to take it on. All of the original artwork is being held back because I would love to have a real show where people can view the paintings in person, (something that I haven’t done in over ten years) likely when the book is released. In the meantime, I will stock my etsy shop with prints of several of the images.
Lastly, you may want a brief synopsis of the story, and I haven’t quite gotten around to that. It’s sweet and odd and sometimes a little scary- but not too scary. It might be considered a mystery so it’s important to pay attention to the pictures as sometimes they give little clues, sometimes… but not always.
