Charlie’s New Sister came out and I am just so proud about how it turned out! I wrote it in 3rd person and was happy, but halfway through a magical little light came on. Wouldn’t this story be better if Charlie told it? And it SO was! I was able to add little comments like ‘Ew! That was totally gross!’ and things like that. Best of all, Charlie had a voice. She wasn’t just some character someone was talking about, she was real. She was someone with fears and worries and I was able to tap into that.
So I got to thinking…and thinking and thinking. What if Callie was able to tell what happened at Camp Eerie through her point of view? I tested the waters and rewrote the first chapter. Not to toot my own horn, but toot! It sounded fabulous! So in my free time (what little I have of it) I started revising every chapter. Words moved around but the story stayed the same and flowed even better. So I decided that no one else should get the original copy of the story anymore and pulled it off of the “shelves”.
I’m almost done the revision and I’m very excited. I can’t wait for everyone to read it and love Callie even more.
That’s all there is to it! A few more weeks and it’ll be back on sale. That’s my Camp Eerie promise!!
