Big Al's Books & Pals 2014 Readers' Choice Awards: Young Adult Nominee

A ruthless murder and a stolen shipment of gold.

At school, sixteen-year-old Nikaia Wales endures the taunts of bullies who call her a “half-breed.” At home, she worries about how her family will react if she reveals her growing feelings for the quiet boy next door.

Those are soon the least of her troubles. Nikaia discovers a hidden cache of gold, and when police find a corpse nearby, her father becomes a suspect. Worse, Elias Doyle is circling, hungry to avenge his brother’s death.

Nikaia desperately searches for clues to save her father. In her quest to find the killer, she learns about the power of family, friendship, and young love....

9,000 written, 9,000 edited. I'm probably going to edit two more chapters to bring that number up to 15,000 edited for the day but it will be later when I tackle it.

1687 written...and now, things have changed a bit in my story...rework of the outline is next. Does that happen often with anyone else? Yes, I'm new, just published my first book, working on #2, and went from pantser to outliner, but a very loose outline at that.

9,000 written and 9,000 edited. I have four chapters of each book left to wrap up the week and mid-80s for temperatures with sun to finish out my pool season over the next few days. I think I'm going to do two chapters of each Thursday and Friday mornings and spend the entire afternoon in the sun both days to finish up.
