#PIMPMYBIO PART 2   Leave a comment

Hi All,

If you clicked on this bio, you might be confused because I already have a bio up. Well, I’m doing another one because I “might” be subbing a different manuscript into Pitchwars. If you don’t know what Pitchwars is, see Brenda Drake’s blog or check out the new Pitchwars website which launches in two days from today, July 26th. https://twitter.com/brendadrake

I’ve entered Pitchwars since 2012 with different manuscripts. Last year I entered a gothic horror which, in retrospect, wasn’t ready. It’s since been revised, edited, edited some more, rewritten with a new format and ending and a new first chapter. I can’t seem to let go of this book so I’m going to try it again.

FRANKENSTEIN BOOK COVER

I bet you can’t guess what my book is about, can you?

Here’s my Pinterest inspiration board: https://www.pinterest.com/kathleea/for-in-that-sleep-of-death-what-dreams-may-come-yo/

And another board: https://www.pinterest.com/kathleea/victorian/

My book is a YA retelling of Frankenstein with a female protagonist who fights against Victorian notions of what a seventeen-year-old girl should and shouldn’t do in London in 1888. It does get a bit graphic at times so if you get queasy better stay clear!

I said on Twitter that this is the book of my heart. What does that say about me that the book of my heart is a gothic horror? Yeah, we won’t go there.

So if any mentors are looking for a gothic horror to put a spit shine polish on, look no further! I’m one of those odd writers who likes to revise because it always makes your book stronger.

So, there you have it.

RIVER SONG TOASTING

Best,

Kathleen
