Comp: The Secret Garden + A Skinful of Shadows
Quick pitch: Her cousin is insane, there’s a daemon living inside her head, and sky pirates are threateing to drag Europe into war. Is it any wonder that Beth’s in a bad mood?
The Final Days
About: A historical fantasy YA novel that takes place in the same world as Lady of Daemons, but explores a radically different aspect of it. While Lady of Daemons focuses on…well, daemons, The Final Days is all about sky pirates. Action! Adventure! Violence! Emotions!
Status: Currently being drafted.
Comp: Leviathan + Six of Crows
Quick pitch: The skyship Coral Snake took everything from five young, queer sky pirates. They’re ready to return the favour.
None of This Means Anything
About: A contemporary YA fantasy and the tattered remains of my 2013 NaNoWriMo novel. I loved the characters and the magic, but the plot was…well. Let’s just say the plot had some issues.
Status: Currently being re-plotted.
Comp: Meg & Linus + Song of the Sea
Quick pitch: A lazy but loveable selkie’s life is thrown into chaos when some nosy family friends bring drama to her island home.
