Part of the reason is because I feel like the definition of "literary fiction" is somewhat obscure.
I have tremendous respect for writers who have the ability to string together line after line of poetic prose.
I'm not that girl.
But NEED is a different kind of book than my typical genre of choice. There are no werewolves, ghosts, demons or vampires...at least not in a typical sense. The story delves deeper into my character's psyche - her dreams, her wants. And the one thing she cannot have but desperately needs.
NEED is my BuNoWriMo project for June. Burrow Novel Writing Month is much like the annual November Novel Writing Month, but hosted by the Burrow writing group.
I'm keeping the story close to my chest for a while because I intend to finish the first draft of NEED in June. But I shared the plot (and yes, I PLOTTED this book...the whole thing...) with the talented Jessica Bell, who designed this amazing, perfect cover. She pretty much nailed its essence.
I've made it my desktop image and every time I look at it, I want to write. An effective muse, I'd say.
