If you have visited my blog before you may well of seen me chatting about a series of manuscripts I have written under the title The Birthstone Unicorns Series. A series that had landed me a UK agent but which sadly to date has proved unsuccessful in securing a publisher (see my post So near and yet so far, for further details). My series consists of 12 separate manuscripts, one for each month of the year, and combines a fantasy element of unicorns and elves with birthstones and their particular properties and associated characteristics! For those of you unfamiliar with birthstones, each month of the year has a different gem. The gem represents different qualities or character traits. April's gem is the diamond - so if your birthday is this month lucky you! I will be adding a post to my blog each month giving details of the gem for that month and a few lines about it. See if you can recognise any familiar characteristics for yourself, family or friends!
I think the series has great commercial potential, I know it would appeal to many girls in the class I work in. I can visualise the book covers - a beautiful white unicorn with a golden horn and sparkly jewels - how could anyone resist! Collect your own birthday or enjoy all 12 stories in the complete series. I hope that I may find a publisher who agrees with me in the not too distant future.
