big news.

Hey, peeps.

Not dead, don't worry. Just a horrible blogger!

Quite a while ago (I'm talking July, here), I FINISHED the first draft of my novel, Saved Alone! *happy dance* And it only took a few years (please note heavy sarcasm). I'm super excited to announce that I'm in the process of editing it, with hopes of publishing it soon. Stay tuned!

Here's a little snippet:

My breathing became more erratic as I desperately tried to get their attention. My raspy, almost non-existent voice sounded like one who had been smoking multiple cigars each day for years.
“Help! Please help me!” I cried. But it didn’t carry.
God, let them know I’m here. Let them find me.
I held fast to the wooden plank with my left arm, and waved the other wildly in the air.
“Here, here!” I screeched.
The light began to move farther and farther to my right. My last hope of survival was disappearing and there wasn’t a single thing I could do.
Why aren’t you helping me?
Before I could make another plea-or rather, accusation-to God, my left hand slipped. A huge splash later, I was immersed in the cuttingly cold Atlantic Ocean. Darkness surrounded. The surface grew farther and farther away, and I began to sink. 

Saved Alone, coming 2015

Later,
Kathryn

To anyone who might be reading this: I've known Kathryn since she was twelve, a girl who had big dreams of becoming an author. You couldn't talk to her for more than ten minutes and not know what she wanted to be.

And now that she's finally realizing her dreams...I'm just so proud.

To Saved Alone!

Live Long and Prosper,
Liz
