Guess Who's Got a Book Coming Out Soon??

Release Date: May 27, 2014
The last thing sixteen-year-old Alaina Oftedahl-Miller expected was to watch her mom brutally destroy their life. 
But, in the wake of tragedy, strength forms. Shipped off to live with her birth father, Alaina finds herself dealing with more than just being the new American girl in a Norwegian school. Juggling the formation of a relationship with the man who abandoned her as a child, and a budding attraction to Kaius Vargøy--the mysterious, beautiful classmate who's been assigned as her personal translator--Alaina can't shake the feeling that every move she makes is being watched. Judged.
She soon learns there's far more to this sleepy Norwegian town than she ever imagined. Kaius and his friends aren't exactly what they seem, and the repercussions of that could send her traveling through the most unexpected experience of her life. Murder and relocation is one thing, but add in supernatural occurrences and Vikings, and even she may not have the strength to survive.

About Ellie Carstens:
For as long as she can recall, Ellie Carstens has been a huge fan of reading. The genre and content are not important as long as the story holds her captive. She believes that life is too short to be taken seriously all the time and to lose one’s self in a good book is an escape worth taking. Now, she writes science fiction, fantasy, romance, and beyond, creating stories that will hopefully bring that same passion for reading to others.
Flux is her debut title and the first in a Young Adult sci-fi/romance trilogy.

Insecure Writers Group May

Wow. I can't believe I'm posting for May already. Where as the year gone?

I've been away from home for two weeks and I just got home today. I'm so happy to be back in my house, my bed and my comfy chair:)

Again, there are some many doubts swarming my head as another month has come and gone and I still find myself unpublished and unagented. Yes, I wonder what's wrong with me? What's wrong with my writing? Why doesn't anyone love my stories, my characters?

WHY?? Not when. Not will they ever.
But WHY?

And yes, again I have crossed the bridge of " Why bother? Why keep trying? No one will every love my books."

But again, I smothered those s fears by preparing to send out more queries AND by starting not one, but TWO new WIP's.

Yes. It's going to happen.
I can't give up on that dream.
I won't.
