Listening to: Pennywise, "Waiting"

My heroine, Hazel, is on the road with a guy she's betrayed, a girl who shares her feelings for said guy, and the black sheep daughter of the world's most powerful witch.

Things are getting complicated, to say the least.

Added to the mix is the following: If Hazel doesn't fix the problems she unwittingly unleashed, her mom and many others will die.

What she doesn't know is that she's headed right into a web of centuries-old secrets and intrigue. And the answer she's searching for, the key to righting all the wrongs and saving her mom, might be the cruelest secret of all.


  1. I like that her mom's life is threatened. Nothing like elevating stakes. I wonder why she's on the road with these people, and what they are up to.

    Is this a modern fantasy? Does your novel have a name, yet?

  2. Yes, it is a modern fantasy. At the moment, it's called "Battle of the Hexes", although that is subject to change. =)


If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
