YEAR OF THE SNAKE (Completed)
Plucked from the slush pile, 19-year-old Amelia Harkins rises instantly to fame and the top of the New York Times "Best Sellers" list. Dropping out of college to pursue a full-time writing career, Amelia spends the next 17 years as America's reigning Queen of Romance, fulfilling her fans' every desire as she pens one steamy novel after another. But when Amelia suddenly realizes she's outgrown her muse and fictional other half, a buxom blond named Hillary Hart, she begins to question her own identity. In Year of the Snake, Amelia embarks on a year-long journey of self-discovery and, in the process, learns what it's like to truly fall in love.
"I've really enjoyed reading your story from start to finish, and became involved with all of the characters. Your story telling is very direct... No flowery language to distract from the story itself; it's what the characters do and say that conveys everything, and that's the most important part. Your dialogue is very natural and believable, and the characters behaviour is also really believable. Very well written! Thank you for sharing it for us to read." @JEHallows
