I love books with unlikely heroines who find their strength despite trauma. When bad things happen to basically good people. I’m a sucker for a tragic ending (just not the ones where everyone dies), and basically anything that celebrates differences instead of condemning them. Some of my favorites are Jacqueline Carey’s Naamah trilogy, Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, anything by N K Jemisin, and Melissa Caruso’s Swords and Fire trilogy.
I’m really tired of whiny white boy protagonists (a la Iron Fist). I’m not big on contemporary realism, but love a good urban/contemp fantasy. I’ll read middle grade for the right CP, but it isn’t my first love. Also very tired of the Abrahamic good vs. evil, Satanist, etc. version of witchcraft. Let’s get some legit Pagan witches up in here!
Morraine hasn’t sought out her bio parents; she doesn’t want her adoptive parents to think they aren’t enough. But when strange things start to happen, including seeing a classmate’s death before it happens, she starts to wonder what answers she might find in the question of her lineage.
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!
