I’ve been working on my novel for a year and a half now. During this whole time, I’ve been apprehensive to officially reveal its name. Perhaps it’s because she’s been such a major part of my life that I haven’t wanted to let her leave home to enter the big, bad world. I figure since I’m querying now, I may as well unlock the door and let her find her way into the capable hands of an agent and publisher.
I know this is cliché, but the idea came from a dream I had. Yet, it goes back farther than that. In July 2009, I treated myself to a trip to Europe as a graduation present to myself. The first stop was Paris, France. I’ve been smitten with that city ever since.
After coming back, I found myself there in my dreams all the time. Talk about a huge let down after waking up. Pft! But one of my Parisian dreams enthralled me; I thought about it for weeks. I told some family members its details with wishy-washy plans to write a story based around it. One sleepless night, I came up with the beginning and the end.
I started tapping away at the computer until I had a very rough draft finished. After many edits and revisions, I now have a complete manuscript. I’m where I’ve wanted to be for over a year.
Query-dome! Woot Woot!
So without further explanation, I introduce you to my book’s title!
My little secret is officially out of the bag. Félicité Found says to you:
BONJOUR! ENCHANTÉ! SALUT!
I hope you like the title, but WHEN it’s published you’ll enjoy its story even more.
To give you a little sneak peek into my book, I share the following pictures.
They play special roles in my book. Enjoy!
Pont Neuf Bridge
Jardin des Tuileries and La Grande Roue (Ferris Wheel)
And of course the Eiffel Tower! Oui Oui!
I hope I've peeked your interest so one day you'll read my book!
