It's hard, but you have to block out everything but your story. Write with the door closed - in other words, protect your mental space. Don't let fears about selling, or the competition, or what's going on with publishing into your head. Just write the book.

There's no point in worrying about ANY of that until *after* you have a completed book. So block all that stuff out. Write a story that you would love to read. Once it's done, then you can fret about all the other stuff, but it's all moot until you actually have a finished manuscript.

Then, there are LOTS of ways forward, I promise. Nobody can write *your* story the way you can. You are unique as a writer. Listen to the quiet voice inside you that wants to tell a story, and do that.

When you've got a completed book, email me. I'm happy to give you some ideas of what to do at that point. Good luck! You can do this~(less)

I got behind this summer, due to illness in my family, but I'm hard at work on Marny's book again. I'm shooting for an end of September release date, and will do my utmost to make that happen.

Make sure you're on my mailing list - those will be the first people notified as soon as the book is for sale. http://eepurl.com/1qtFb (Plus you get a free short story upon joining.)

To tide readers over, I've release a Marny novella, How to Babysit a Changeling, so scoop that one up if you haven't already.

Thanks for your patience! :)

“There were worse things than having a terrifying Dark Elf warrior mage as her champion.”
Anthea Sharp, Elfhame

“Peacock-blue silk and silver gauze like moonlight, scarlet velvet deeper than rose petals, satin studded with dewdrops. Tiny gemstones winked from the sleeves and necklines, and the scent of sandalwood hung in the air, as though the dresses breathed out opulence.”
Anthea Sharp, Elfhame

“Her long hair, the deep black of a raven’s wing, was pulled back from her face. I couldn’t tell if my new stepsister was pretty, or hideous, or merely the strangest girl I had ever seen.
“I don’t want a pretend mother. Or a false sister.” The princess’s voice was cold as ice.
I hesitated, then curtseyed to her, but she seemed to take no notice, and certainly didn’t return the favor. Either we would become friends—or the bitterest of enemies.”
Anthea Sharp, White as Frost
