YA fantasy/historical writer looking for an experienced CP
Hi potential writer friend/CP,
I’m a hardcore YA writer who’s written half a dozen novels in the past 8 years. I’ve finally found something I’m committed to revise, polish, and query: A YA historical fantasy, written in the omniscient perspective, with multiple point of views. If you like popular YA fantasy/historical books and also happen to be a fan of classic literature, you’ll love my current project, hopefully. And if you’ve got at least a few years of experience in writing books (or a couple of completed projects under your belt), I think we’ll be a great CP match!
Lyrical writing for sure, rich world-building, witchy stories, romantic subplots (only if done well), deep characterization, magic in any form, fae are welcome. My favorite books include classics like Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice, as well as YA fantasy books – anything by Laini Taylor, Maggie Stiefvater, Leigh Bardugo.
Nothing violent, please, and no horror. Also, anything that includes dragons/hard fantasy creatures of that sort would probably not be a good choice.
A seventeen-year-old aspiring artist stumbles into the sojourn of a group of royal witches, only to be discovered and torn away from her fiance and her artistic dreams. Taken to the Royal Chateau for training, she must find a way back to her old life without falling for the kindnesses and charms of the mysterious prince of the coven or his mercurial bride-to-be.
Will she reclaim her art and the boy of her dreams, or will her life be consumed by her haunting magical past and her dangerous but equally magical future?
I mostly write YA fantasy/historical these days, but I do write in other genres: YA dystopian, for example, and YA urban fantasy.
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!
