I think introductions are in order

I've been putting off this post for while now, though I'm not really sure why. The best explanation I can give is that I believe in jinxes. Really I do. I've had it proved to me too many times to ignore, and I guess I just figured if I put it out there, into the cyber world, I'd jinx myself and never finish the book.

I'm happy to say I finished the first round of edits on Serenity! (I would say something snarky to the universe right now, but I could still be jinxed. I take no chances!)

So, I am happy to finally introduce to you, Serenity Chase. AKA-The main character of Serenity. (Thanks to my nephew Nate for the awesome drawing!) I know what you're thinking. Wow! What an original title, Heather, (in your most sarcastic tone). The truth is, I don't want it to remain that title, I just haven't found the right one yet. I'll think of that more as I go through it again.

I'll give more information on the book over the next few weeks/months, but for now I'll just leave you with the summary.

Serenity Chase is in the business of fiction. All those creatures you’ve fallen in love with, all the ones you hate, are real. They just live in a parallel world. As part of the Inter dimensional Syn Alliance, Serenity’s job is to keep them there. It’s a job she was born into, a job she can’t get out of.

So when a dragon crosses over, Serenity thinks it’s just another assignment. She didn’t count on the dragon stealing a boy from her junior English class and hoarding him like he’s the feast of the century. Getting him back is tricky. Keeping him safe, difficult. Not falling for him, impossible.

As if having a crush on a guy the ISA didn’t choose for her wasn’t bad enough, she finds out he’s a major key in discovering a secret the ISA wants buried. Keeping him safe means keeping him secret. Now Serenity is lying to the ISA; putting herself at risk of being sent away to one of a thousand torturous dimensions.

It’s worth it. At least it will be if she can discover the truth before they do.
