"Modern-day gothic" YA thriller
I’ve been taking writing seriously since I was 13. Starting with zombie stories and transitioning to contemporary, my current MS is a dark YA thriller about a suicide pact gone wrong. ~85k words of angst, drama, a lengthy revenge plot lead by an irredeemable villain and an antiheroine MC. Think something “Wuthering Heights”-esque but in a high school setting. I’m a huge fan of psychological horror/thrillers but I’ll read almost anything from romance to fantasy and more.
Three years ago, Charlie Rosehart and Jonah Cavalcanti agreed that if they were going to kill themselves, they were going to do it together.
Three years ago, they were supposed to jump. He did; she hesitated at the last second, and she watched him fall to his death on the grimy city asphalt, too afraid to do the same herself.
But Jonah Cavalcanti didn’t die. He’s spent all this time in and out of hospitals recovering from a debilitating spinal cord injury as well as her betrayal, but now he’s on his feet again. The mysterious boy from Charlie’s past is back, better than ever, and bent on making her new life a living hell.
Maybe she should have just jumped after all.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
