UNTELLING THE MAYA (Title changed to PIECES OF MOON February 2010)
While visiting Belize, Tess Gale finds herself in sixteenth-century Maya, where she discovers she must betray the Spanish soldier she has fallen in love with to thwart the ancient end-of-time prophecy.
The above picture was drawn by Natalie. I am gearing up for a rewrite, but in the meantime I have read a few books and am currently working my way through The First Five Pages by Noah Lukeman. I'm not an outline girl, but I am trying to map the book out this time, now that I have a rough draft written. I'd like to get a chunk rewritten before my baby comes next month!
Oh, and as you can see, there is a little bit of end-of-time pressure. Although my book doesn't specify the year 2012, that is what it is based on. So, I'm sure agents will only look at it if it comes across their desks next year, earlier next year. Maybe I'll be too late. Maybe it will be a learning book. Or, maybe the world really will end in 2012...
