    Default The Impossibilty of Tomorrow

    Hey Guys!
    My sister wrote a book! I know it is probably not a book a lot of you guys would read... but maybe some of you have children or know some young adults that would enjoy this book. It is the sequel of "The Alchemy of Forever" and it is based in the bay area. I'm really proud of her! The second one came out yesterday.
    Check it out!

    Use no superfluous word, no adjective which does not reveal something.

    Don't use such an expression as 'dim lands of peace'. It dulls the image. It mixes an abstraction with the concrete. It comes from the writer's not realizing that the natural object is always the adequate symbol.

    Go in fear of abstractions.

    Could you please paste like the opening paragraph of this book? I promise we won't make fun.

    Who wants to take bets on what it contains? I got 1000 dollars that says it spends most of the time describing the appearance of either the protagonist or the setting of the first scene. But like, it spends almost all its time just blathering with descriptive bullshit. Guaranteed.

    I perused the description on Amazon. It's a young adult novel about some chick who hops from body to body but is herself immortal. And she's dating some dude. But her ex-also-immortal-and-abusive-boyfriend is back in the picture.

    It's produced by the same company that does a bunch of other pre-teen chick lit.

    My bet is the opening paragraph is the inner monologue of Seraphina, musing about how blissfully happy she is now that she's free from the controlling ex and in the arms of her new and wondrous lover.

    That author bio was a lot more interesting before I put my glasses back on and realized she wasn't actually working on her hundred-year-old horse.

    it's dedicated to "Vendetta Luna, escape artist, tiny ghost, adventurer, and friend."

    Okay so, this author has never done anything exciting in their entire life, right?

    Um, she was really lucky. She had a college friend that worked at Harper Collins. This friend knew that Alloy was looking for a ghost writer and referred my sister. Alloy is a book packaging company that produced Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, The Secret Circle, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and similar teen books. My sister wrote a couple sample chapters for them and they ended up offering her her own series. Even though it wasn't exactly how she dreamt about publishing her first book... it allowed her to get a really good agent and start working on a book all of her own. But Alloy sold this book to the publishers and so she didn't have to worry about that.

    She actually is! She bought her 100 year old house in Oakland (near Ashby). It's an ongoing adventure. My brother redid the original floors. They are beautiful.
