I did it.
Oh, how amazing it feels to type those words.
After editing every day since June 2020…
Awake, Awoke is officially updated as draft four. It has improved so much! Every time I look at previous versions, I laugh at how different they are to the current copy. I will be calling my editor in January to discuss steps beyond the editing process, and am beginning to draft a query letter!
Below is the blurb for Awake, Awoke!
Healing takes energy and time.
Yithmora is low on both.
She has the ability to heal others, sacrificing part of her lifespan with each cure. And her lifespan is dwindling. When she wakes from an eight hundred year coma and learns she has less than a year to live, she risks losing it all. She must face plague-carrying insects guarding the gateway of time to return home and restore her lifespan. Along the way, she begins to realize how much the future needs her, but her generosity could cost her her life.
Meanwhile, eight hundred years earlier, fifteen-year-old Rin Tathalian is little more than a slave. Afraid of his own mind control capabilities, he must confront his fears to rescue his parents from a greedy general. Surrounded by betrayal, hidden pasts, slavery and war; a string of seemingly random explosions is the least of his concerns.
Timelines merge in unexpected ways, and hard truths must be revealed to clear a path home. For them both.
