It's a young adult paranormal romance that features angst, dealing with mortality, pie, cute boys who don't breathe, cemeteries, sunshine and there might be some kissing ;) I'd love it if you'd check it out or add it to your to read list. It's available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon as an ebook. Thank you so much! Nocturnal

Chelsea Cameron (chelccam) | 8 comments Thank you so much! I was lucky enough to find two beautiful stock images and taught myself enough about graphics to layer them. I'm so happy other people like it too :)

Wow seriously???!! I thought it was professionally done


message 14: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea Cameron (chelccam) | 8 comments Nope. Did it myself :) I'm planning on keeping the tulip part and using it for the rest of the series because it's so pretty.


message 15: by Paulina (new)

Paulina | 98 comments Mod
Ahhhh good idea, how many books are you planning on making?


message 16: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea Cameron (chelccam) | 8 comments Four in that series. It was going to be three, but then things happened and it's now four. I'm cool with it because I adore the characters and will be sad to see them go. I've also got several other series in the works :)

Wow that's awesome, I'm really exited I really wanna read it.. Did someone help you publish it or did you do it all by yourself?


message 18: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea Cameron (chelccam) | 8 comments I'm a DIY kind of girl. Why make someone else do something I can do for myself? I'm just lucky there was a ton of stuff online about how to do it, or I would have been totally lost. I'm excited that someone else is excited about it too!

Hahah that's awesome, i was starting to write a book but every time i type it up its amazing my best work, as soon as i re read it its complete crap


message 20: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea Cameron (chelccam) | 8 comments Yeah, that happens to me too. But sometimes it's the other way around. Just takes time and a lot of writing and re-writing. Also having someone else look at it and tell you it doesn't suck. We're always our own worst critics :)


message 21: by Paulina (new)

Paulina | 98 comments Mod
Yeah, I get my friend to look it over


message 22: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea Cameron (chelccam) | 8 comments Might want to try a teacher or librarian. Someone who knows about mechanics and story arcs. I had a lot of help from professors when I was in college.

Ah yeah, we'll I'm still 15 and not really sure if I ever want to get it published of just do it for fun..


message 24: by Chelsea (new)

Chelsea Cameron (chelccam) | 8 comments Do it for fun now. Worry about the career later :) You have plenty of time.


message 25: by Paulina (new)

Paulina | 98 comments Mod
Yeah :) .. I would love to publish a book, and every time I look it up on the Internet it says it's really hard and I think that is putting me off it, but I enjoy writing what is already in my head

Brynn Chapman | 1 comments Hi all. I am a voracious reader as well as an author. The book is Romantic Historical Fantasy. I love books like The Prestige, The Illusionist etc, and its my favorite to write as well.

Verity Montague is a servant in 1692 Salem. Her flaming red hair and mismatched eyes make her a prime target for accusation of witchcraft. Orphaned during the Indian raids, she and her brother with Asperger's Syndrome come to live with the key historical figures of the trials-The Putnams. They keep their synesthesia secret- that days, months and years appear as color in Verity's mind, and for John, that symphonies play in a Fantasia-style performance of colors and geometric patterns.

Truman Johnstone 's ability to discern people's expressions, and decipher if they were lying- made him an outspoken child. Being different kept him from being adopted till he was fourteen. He now runs an orphanage for problem youths, and is a feeding therapist in his desire to help children deal with their peculiarities. To give them the childhood he never had.

The harvest festival corn maze Truman creates every year has an unwelcome visitor. Children hear disembodied voices skipping through the corn maze amid the backdrop of eerie orchestral music. In every year of the calendar, intermittent doors of time swing open and closed, so long as the cornfield stands.

In societies set on sameness-all are outsiders.

They learn the traits that make us outcasts, may be the very ones that make us great, and that true love may heal all, and even transcend time.

If you have book recommendations in this genre, I'd love to add them to my ridiculously large TBR pile.

Thanks Brynn

Im also a huge YA reader. ;) I wish you all the best with your writing and feel free to ask questions if youre new to publishing
