We’re writing! That’s right, both bloggers here at BSR have been hard at work on our first novels for a couple of years now. Oh, how we wish we could work on them full time instead of an hour here and an hour there! But we’ve made progress slowly but surely and are both in the beginning phases of our third drafts. We’ve decided we’re ready to start sharing little bits about our manuscripts in our newsletter. This time, we’ll give you a back-of-the-book type summary to introduce you to our stories.
Stacy is writing a high fantasy series called The Arwyn Prophecies.
An old prophecy left the Arwyn king to speculate whether his life would be cut short and who his young son Luke should eventually marry. The prophecy also left an orphan named Caitlin in the custody of the king’s trusted advisor and led her adoptive father to wonder if she would be the future queen. Luke and Caitlin developed a close friendship as children but now, after a falling out, haven’t seen each other in years.
While it appears the foretold time is drawing near, a new prophecy has yet to arrive to clarify the old one. Is the prediction still valid? If so, will the horrific events catch everyone by surprise? And are these even the most important questions? Perhaps the king should be asking who rather than when as he ponders the long-foretold attacks on his great city.

Sara is writing an urban fantasy adventure called This Dreamer.
Evie, a Watcher, grows restless observing mortals from the safety of her desk in the Control Room. Though it’s against the rules, she jumps at the chance to meet Adan, the human Dreamer she has been secretly studying for ages. Aside from the heap of trouble she is in upon her delayed return, Evie also learns that Adan has vanished from his sector in her absence. He has been transported to another where his presence is strictly forbidden.
Evie is sent into this wild and unknown place wielding a golden blade and wearing a human body. Her orders are to find him and take care of the problem before her time is up. As she fights against unfamiliar human emotions, she discovers that Adan is much more than an ordinary mortal and that perhaps his illusive captor is a threat to them all. If she doesn’t succeed, her way back to the Control Room will be sealed, and she will be banished to this sector, alone, until the slow grip of mortality should claim her.
