Tattooed Teardrops

I just finished the first draft of a new YA novel, “Tattooed Teardrops” tonight. This is a book that I started on a while ago, seat of the pants, no plot or outline. Unfortunately, I got stuck writing backstory and didn’t know where the main book was going. So I sat down in December and worked through the Snowflake Method to get a basic plot outlined, set up a beat sheet with the main action, and dove back into it, much more excited! I aimed to get it done by the end of January, at a casual pace, but it came together a bit more quickly than that!

So without further ado, here’s a bit of a teaser for you:
