Teaser Tuesday: This All Could End

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

I'm editing Signs & Wonders (remember my visual inspiration posts last year?) at the moment (I realise now how much the story has changed since last November. It's kind of a totally different novel now). I'm also working on the first drafts of two new novels (one paranormal YA, one that might be a YA suspense, I'm not sure) to keep myself sane in between doing lots and lots of lovely schoolwork.

So, I thought, why don't I share a little excerpt from one of these new works-in-progress!

This is from midway through the first chapter of what is currently titled This All Could End. It's the first time I've tried to write in third person, so it's tricky for me (I like first person a lot better, but the characters always end up with the same voice and thought-patterns - mine). This All Could End is mainly about a bank robbery, but it's also about aliens, awkward teenage romance and how to deal when your parents are sociopaths. So, you know, it's the sort of novel I'd write. A weird one.

It's an early draft, so it's not perfect. I'll probably be taking it down in 24 hours or so. Let me know what you think!
*cut* Thanks everyone for your comments. Hopefully I'll do another teaser soon.
