NaNoWriMo is coming up in November! Last year I had contemplated joining but life did a dirvish around me and left me with no time to participate last year. This year however, I will be taking a crack and Young Adult for the genre and the novel is called These Chains of Mine.
The synopsis is written, the outline is being done and the cover art is completed. Here’s a little taste with the mini synopsis of the project at hand.
These Chains of Mine is the story of a young man recounting his troubled childhood and the abusive nature of a spiteful step father. The story touches on ethnic issues, child abuse and the repercussions that enfold. From his childhood to his young adult addictions as an alcoholic and drug addict to suicide attempts and the recovery afterward the story takes a journey into the seedy underbelly of the ripple effect of child abuse and racism from the first person point of view.
