Here is my story for NaNoWriMo 2013: Janette Lennox!
This thrilling new fantasy series features 14-year-old Janette Lennox, a girl who doesn’t seem to fit in with the children at her church boarding school. Janette would rather hide in the school library and read books about magic, unaware that she herself is part of a secret magical legacy.
Janette is shocked when a wizard comes to take her away from her home and brings her to the famed school Garmaris School of Alchemy and Magic. There, Janette learns that her parents, who had vanished ten years earlier, had been among those who stole the famed Book of Magic from the wicked Gray Witch during the Magical Wars.
Janette finds herself facing a difficult challenge – finding the Book of Magic and protecting it. She plunges herself into the task of searching for the book with an unlikely group of companions. But she has no idea that the Book of Magic is the least of her concerns. A group of powerful witches are determined to find the book and seize the world as their own, and are willing to stop at nothing in order to see her fail. The young spellcaster soon finds herself fighting against overwhelming odds – and the fate of her school (and the rest of the world) hangs in the balance!
How Janette outwits her merciless enemies makes an exciting story, packed with thrilling action, magic, and humor.
Well, I guess I better hop to it; this story isn’t going to write itself!
