I finally completed my new manuscript, Beneath The Lake, and had a fabulous time writing the story. Even the research was fascinating, learning the eerie lake lore surrounding Georgia’s Lake Lanier.
Beneath The Lake is a time travel romance with strong historical elements; think Back To The Future meets Time Traveler’s Wife. Lacey Montgomery’s life is riddled with rejection and abandonment. (sound familiar?) When she walks in on her boyfriend’s affair, she drives off in the throes of a torrential storm, hydroplanes and is hurled into the depths of an icy, black lake. She awakens in the arms of a strange man, in a town she’s never heard of––thirty-four years before she was born. The desperation to find her way home shifts as Lacey falls in love with a town destined to be erased from the face of the earth, and Bobby Reynolds, the man who vows to protect it. The struggle to save them both heals her internal conflict, while restoring Bobby’s belief in true love, spinning a star-crossed love story that defies time as Lacey tries to prevent her new life from slipping beneath the lake.
Of course, once a story is written the real work begins. Editing, agents and the publishing process will take time, but your encouragement will keep me motivated. In the mean time, I’m officially rejoining the real world again and hope to spend more time with my friends through this blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and actually in person. Be sure to check out my Pinterest Books & Writing board to get some insight on Beneath The Lake. Thanks for all of your support through my hibernation. I’m back!
