About New Book

I’ve been so gone lately, and I’ve neglected my blog in the process! D: But it’s all good because I’ve been busy with life and advancing my writing career. Some updates real quick:

  • Graduated college (wooo!)
  • Finished another novel (currently being edited)
  • Quit doing mediumship readings and spiritual coaching (I still channel, though, but for myself)
  • Advanced in my energy healing

Anyway, I’m excited about my future and I feel very hopeful. For a while there I was feeling dread and immense anxiety that constantly loomed over me like a dark shadow. I’m feeling MUCH better now and not as frightened about my student loan debt. I’m really excited about this new book, and I feel it’ll really jumpstart my writing career. I’ve learned a lot from my first couple fo books I published, and I’m continuing to learn more as I progress down this path. I don’t know everything, but I know enough and I’m eager to learn more.

With this book, I’m not going to self-publish. I’m going to take the long route, and go through a literary agent and then a publisher. So as I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (HA! A funny for hopeful future authors out there), I will be looking to your much needed support 🙂

For those that are curious, my book is titled (for right now) Freonia. The genre is New-Adult Dystopian Fiction, and the story has some satire and heavy amounts of philosophical ideas in it. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where society is just beginning to rebuild itself after it collapsed from wars that raged on for wars between nearly every country. There are those who live in “wealthy pockets”, which are societies governed by people, and they are the first civilized societies to pop up. Then there are those who live in the “poverty pockets” who don’t want to be governed because they feel government is what caused all the wars in the first place. The main character is a 15-year-old girl named Margaret who isn’t anything like the typical dystopian heroines. She starts out as a very selfish and entitled teenager that grew up in a wealthy pocket all her life where her father is one of the main political leaders. She gets tricked into going to the poverty pocket nearby by a boy whose family just moved into the society from this nearby poverty pocket. The boy trades her as a sex slave in exchange for his and his family’s freedom. That’s how the beginning of the story starts. Over time she makes friends among those that live in the poverty pocket, and they go on a quest in search of the perfect society to live in. There’s a bunch of other themes in the story like what is the meaning of life? Political corruption, what it means to be human, and the idea that we are all One and part of a collective.

Hopefully that brief summary intrigued your interest a bit 🙂 I need to get more discipline and start blogging more!

    Congrats Heather and well done!! Your new book sounds intriguing and if Voltaire had a little input of inspiration, I’m in!!! Just have to read it!!! Bravo!!!

      Thank you! And yes, Voltaire definitely played a huge part in this book. I even semi-trance channeled him, and he wrote a few paragraphs himself. The ending of my book was inspired by his novel, Candide. I’m so glad you’re interested!
