If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Two things I've learned during revisions:
  1. Don't under estimate the power of a second strong character, even if he is a vulgar imp named Razzle.
  2.  Anything is subject to change.
My novel 'Bloodstone' currently stands at 58,060 words.
  • I have reworked it four times. 
  • I started it January of 2012. 
  • It's currently into submission.

Here is the first and last lines of Chapter 1:

First Line: 

            Ebony’s breath slowed. The sound came from her deceased father’s old study across the small house.

Last Line:

A blue light appeared and he walked through it, leaving the Manor behind.

Wish me luck!

Best of luck to you as you submit!! I like the imp's name, Razzle. :) Reworking it 4 times, good for you. I'm sure it's improving each time you do it. Three or four times seems to be about my average for my novels. Nice first and last lines!!
