Deep End Of The Sea - Front Cover


What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong?

Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard. As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age.

But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.

All month, I have been trying to decide exactly what to say to you to wrap up the writing adventure we’ve had during NaNoWriMo. But the truth is, I’m speechless. I always am at the end of November when I look back and realize the enormity of the literary ride we’ve just been on. Other NaNoWriMo veterans will tell you that you need to be prepared for anything during the month of November—and they are completely right. World catastrophes happen, children accidentally delete the last 5,000 words of your manuscript, or—as in my case—your computer breaks the week before Thanksgiving and you have to find another way to finish your novel.

Overcoming Week 2: A NaNoWriMo Guest Post by Susan Nowak

When I first heard of NaNoWriMo, I laughed out loud.

Write a 50,000-word novel?! In one month?!?

Insane. To use one of my favorite British idioms, I thought someone had gone “round the twist.” Continue reading
