The Scent Enchantress

A cover I cooked up for The Scent Enchantress

For those of you who are curious about my novel, this post is for you! The Scent Enchantress is a contemporary fantasy romance. It is set in a fictional suburb of Toronto.

Bullied and tormented, librarian Esper Vaughn retreats into her
perfect world of steamy romance novels.  The arrival of a magical
inheritance forces her to take control of her destiny.  She is a
Scent Enchantresses and heir to a line long of magical women gifted
with incredibly enhanced sense of smell.

As Esper begins her initiation into the magic arts, a former
highschool crush and a familiar Prince Charming re-enter her life.
With her growing magical powers, she begins to see visions of her
death and the perils of magic.  Can she survive her first year as a
Scent Enchantress and defy the rule that love is forbidden?

I finished this novel a few months before I had Natalie. It’s been shelved since. Robert remembered its existence and tells me we should do something with it. I’ve submitted it to a few places and I’m hoping to hear back before the end of May. I’ve never really exhausted any avenues with this manuscript. I figured why not? We’re planning on self-publishing anyway if nothing pans out with the submissions.

When I was in highschool, I wrote every day. I must have finished about two or three novels. They were all romance novels. My friends were wonderful and eagerly awaited the 2-3 pages I brought every morning. I hope some of them are reading this blog. It’ll bring back memories and they will see that after 10 years, I’m still writing.

To Do List for April and May

A Beautiful Afghan by my Sister-In-Law

For the months of April and May, I need to get two main things done aside from editing my novel. I am making a hoop for a friend of mine- Nicole. The other is sewing doll clothes for Anime North in May. I haven’t touched my dolls since I packed them up at the last trimester of my pregnancy. My baby is now a year old. I hope to post sketches. Dolls are a wonderful hobby I have that I photograph and sew for. I hope to be posting sewing doll clothes in the future.

As for the writing, I have submitted my manuscript to a few places and I hope I’ll hear something back before the end of May. May is my cut off date. If I don’t hear back from anyone then we will self-publish The Scent Enchantress on I’ll be making a dedicated post about The Scent Enchantress in the future.

The Juggling Act

April 1st, 2011 § 1 comment § permalink

Coming up is my baby’s first birthday! The above pic is one of her favourite toys Mr. Bunny Bobo. It took me about 9- 10 months to start feeling like myself again. My baby had colic and every night was a battle to get to sleep for 9 months. When she began sleeping without stress, this was when I finally began to have time to myself again. I got into embroidery and returned to art/crafts. From personal experience, devoting oneself completely to one’s child is the road to martyrdom. Realistically, as a mother and person, I needed my own space and my own time. It’s only natural. I am enjoying a great balance now taking care of my baby and my own needs.

It’s a great feeling to know she’s safe and sound asleep and I have the rest of the night to creatively express myself.
