Your book sounds super interesting! I live in Amsterdam now but I spent three years living in Atlanta (2014 - 2017 ish), with some rural work assignments, so the setting will be familiar to me.
I am also hoping to find long term CPs. I have completed a New Adult fantasy, 95,000 words, dual POV. I wanted to write something inspired by the Scorpio Races (desolate island, dangerous seas), but it has come out a lot sweeter/lighter. I am querying at the moment and would love an opinion on it.
Currently reading: Ten Thousand Doors of January, Stephen King's On Writing
Most recently loved: Gods of Jade and Shadow, Mexican Gothic, Rule of Wolves (plus many others!)
Please let me know what you think!
All the best :)
