Gabe is an average fifteen-year-old goblin. He’s in the marching band, breezes through calculus, and gets picked on daily by the other kids at school, especially the ogres. But Gabe wants to break out of his nerdy stereotype and try other things. He has his eye on the new ogress at school. Though it’s against all beastly rules, there’s just something about her.


Gabe starts a fad of mingling with other species, forcing the High Council to step in and ruin things by threatening to destroy the school and split up Broken Branch Falls. With help from other outcast friends, Gabe sets out on a quest to save his town. They'll show 'em what different friends can do together!

For Junowrimo I will end up writing less than 20,000 words of my revision for Normal. But that's okay. I am happy to say that this revision has given me a better path to go on for the rest of the book. Also I have cut it down from five to three intended books with the working titles Normal, Magic and Gifted. Read below for an old summary of this manuscript which was originally an unfinished 2011 Nano.

NormalBook One in The Gifted Series


Charlie Sharp is a normal girl in the Northern Region of Airee. While that might seem typical it's not. Being normal in Airee meant you weren't among The Gifted - citizens with special powers- and that made you a second class citizen with rules and restrictions that separated you from many rights and privildges only the gifted received.

Charlie's life is a bit safer for a normal. With most of her family on her side, she gets to live as close a life to a gifted person without breaking the rule. Even …

Hi folks yes I'm still alive. Sadly I'm still having issues getting to a computer with internet access. I had tried to get one locally at a lower price but issues with the model has made me decide to seek a refund and that is currently being hashed out with the seller.

On other news I'm reading the sequel to School for Evil, A World Without Princes and it is a pretty good read. Also trudging through my Junowrimo project a revision/rewrite of Normal. Still less than 10,000 words in but I'm glad I've started and I have ideas on how to improve on it from the old unfinished version. Hope to see How To Train Your Dragon 2 month end or early July. Thankfully since it is 3D then Jamaica will let it hang around a while.

Anyway what about you guys? How have you been and thanks for stopping by today.

Two Cover Reveals and a Giveaway

COVER REVEAL! Brand new covers for Lancaster House and The Middle Aisle! ~A paranormal romance series by Taylor Dean~ I love my OLD covers. (Pictured on the left.) I really do. They're different from the norm and that's why they captured my attention. For Lancaster House, I liked the idea of a hand reaching out from the grave. It seemed appropriate to the story; Andre reaches out to Zoe from beyond the grave. It was Carrie-like and kind of creepy.

There's just one problem. This is not a horror novel. Not at all. This is a paranormal romance. People who like horror are drawn to the cover and are sadly disappointed when they realize it's a romance. People who love paranormal romance are turned off by the cover because it looks too creepy. In other words, the cover just wasn't working. I love The Middle Aisle cover because it matched Lancaster House so perfectly. And part of the story takes place in Monterey, Californi…

IWSG and Goal Hop

Hi everyone. My insecurity today is pretty much how I will do in Junowrimo this month. Up to Tuesday I haven't written a single word. Yup, zero. I have been stressed out lately with having to pay off money I owe and having to delay getting my new glass plus no longer having daily access to a computer until I get my own. I am still grateful for all I have but sometimes stresses are just that. I hope to get back in the saddle and ask you guys to wish me luck.


Due to my father's laptop being stolen and my limited access to computer as a result. I had no time to do anything relating to my goal. All my time was spent scrambling to do my ghostwriting gig on time.
