Query

This here is my latest Query letter.


Immortal Island – Spellbound is a 72,000 word manuscript targeted for Adult Romance / urban dark fantasy.

Set in contemporary times, off the coast of Connecticut on a remote island called, Coffman’s Isle. My heroine is a soft hearted beautiful young woman with intimacy and trust issues. Meaning, she always lets her emotions get the better of her and always trusts the wrong person. My hero is a very sexy, very old-fashioned vampire, who acts as the Sheriff on the island, along with his father, the Chief. When the two meet and discover something so strange, yet ancient between them, their lives are put in constant peril. There is plenty of tension, romance, passion and thrills to get your heart pumping, as you read every page.

There is more but that is mainly for the agent and personal information of mine.

So it has come along way, from 350 words down to this. very cut and dry but it has peaked the interest of a few agents.

Recent reads

Okay so this post is going to be about the most recent books I have read. Now remember these are just my opinions not looking for a battle or anything :).

1st up is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson. Let me just say that despite the Swedish language and a few words I had to look up to find out what they meant.( the words I had to look up were Gaol and Libel) It was a phenomenal read. I am very excited to read the next installment-> The Girl That Played With Fire. He is great, at describing his work so you can visualize it. A lot of books these days lack that, and usually wont be read by as many as they would hope. I watched the movie as well, after I read the book. I definitely preferred the book. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who can handle some graphic scenes. The book in paperback is about 841 pages took me a week to complete and I ordered the second book immediately as I finished.


2nd book was the final book to the blue bloods series. By far the best in the series however I did not love the writing. Everything felt like a cluster F*$& of situations (pardon my language) and it was a little annoying to have to look back and remember how that person is connected to that person and who is bonded to who and why and what kind of vampire/angel they were. This is soley my opinion. I knew a few that have read it and loved it but the shocker hit me when they introduced that the two bonded were also brother an sister. It was just a little too... weird. Young teens may enjoy it but anyone over 20 may find it over the top. (PLus vampires are angels just doesnt do it for me. They are two seperate beings) Everyone asked me why are you reading it if you dont enjoy it. Answer -> I started it I have to finish it. :) I wanted to see if it got any better. Needless to say I wont be reading the next installment.

Onto the next book which I am not enjoying either is LJ Smith's Forbidden Game, now let me put this out there-> I LOVE LJ Smith but this book is by far my least fave.
I am about half way through and want to put it down but I started it and I borrowed it so I need to at least give it a fair go before I say anything else about it.


I have also started Heather Graham's Brothers Flynn series and I really like it but have put it on hold till I am done Forbidden Game since it is one large book as appose to a mini series. I read the first 3 chapters and am excited to continue it.


Once I am done reading all the books that I have borrowed from friends and family. I will be going through the entire series of Anne Rices' vampire chronicles. I also borrowed her sleeping beauty series of books ( as A.N Roquelaure -pseudo). As for Vampire novels, I have almost completed the series there are a few more books I need to buy. I've read most of them years ago except for the more recent ones in the series. I did enjoy her Toby O'Dare novel and looking forward to reading the next book.

Sabrina :)

Cheers.
