OVERVIEW:

Magic can do a lot―give you flight, show you mermaids, help you taste the stars, and… solve the budget crisis? That’s what the grown-ups will do with it if they ever make it to Neverland to steal its magic and bring their children home.

However, Gwen doesn’t know this. She’s just a sixteen-year-old girl with a place on the debate team and a powerful crush on Jay, the soon-to-be homecoming king. She doesn’t know her little sister could actually run away with Peter Pan, or that she might have to chase after her to bring her home safe. Gwen will find out though―and when she does, she’ll discover she’s in the middle of a looming war between Neverland and reality.

She’ll be out of place as a teenager in Neverland, but she won’t be the only one. Peter Pan’s constant treks back to the mainland have slowly aged him into adolescence as well. Soon, Gwen will have to decide whether she’s going to join impish, playful Peter in his fight for eternal youth… or if she’s going to scramble back to reality in time for the homecoming dance.

  1. I like the people watching and waiting part of flying. There does seem to be a yo-yo between waiting and doing absolutely nothing for a long time and then frantic scrambling and rushing to make it on time. Loved your thoughts on flying. Makes me want to travel again:)

    1. Thank you PJ! It’s great to find other authors and get a sense for the sort of community that is out here. It’s a very exciting time to be publishing, and I’m so happy my book is moving forward!

      1. Yes, we sure are digital citizens. And it does make our writing pursuit so much less solitary. I travelled to California and Seattle in 2012, an would have loved to get to Portland, but major snowstorms that January.
        I’ve self published, as you may have gathered, and have enjoyed the writing process, but am juggling the promotion, social media etc.It can be tricky.
        Still it’s great to meeting people like you, I love YA genre.
        I have a big book launch this Sunday, lots of friends, family and acquaintances coming, so wish me luck.

  2. PJ, that’s fantastic to hear you have a book launch this Sunday! A week to go! I can’t even imagine being at that point yet, haha. Best of luck…I hope all that tricky social media work pays off for you!😀

    1. Yes thanks Audrey. It’s getting quite big, over sixty people now. That’s mainly our friends and local acquaintances. We’ve lived in our area a long time so it’s very kind how interested people are and showing their support. While the audience is not YA many have children or grandchildren etc that they talk to/ pass the book onto.

      Having said that, I’m working hard on building YA audience, including cold calling and visiting local school librarians. Two have bought the book so far, plus I have a gig in two weeks to give a talk at recess in the school library to keen teen readers. I’m also offering writing workshops and talks, as being a teacher I feel confident to chat to groups of kids. I have to make a power point presentation now for the talk in a fortnight.

      Anyway, the juggling of tasks is improving. A young friend helped me to start a data base of contacts, plus I bought an app called Things for my iphone which is a helpful organiser for each day and planning ahead.

      Look forward to chatting again,
      PJ

      1. Very neat! Never forget how many adults read YA, either. That’s a marketing categorization, not a law determining who can enjoy art. A good story resonates with a wide range of people, and I’m sure a lot of your personal network that’s interested will enjoy it regardless of whether or not they’re the “target” audience.

        Cold-calling librarians sounds like a lot of work, but I’m sure it’ll pay off! I’ll need to remember to do that when I get closer to launch date…I should put that on my workflowy.com list (that’s my go-to app for staying organized!)

        Best,
        Audrey

  3. Audrey, I can’t wait to read your latest work! The description makes it sound irresistible (and the cover design makes it even harder to wait until I can hold and read a copy of your book). Looking forward to your book tour stop in Duvall.

    1. Yay! Thank you so much! I can’t wait for this to be released out into the world, and shared with everyone…from the people who have never heard of me, to the ones who have supported me from the start:)
