I Am An Indie Author!
My name is Antoinette J. Houston and I’m a Multi-genre author in search of readers! I have written five (5) books since 2014 when I turned forty! My first book was an urban fantasy called Red Summer. It has turned into a three part series of which I am currently working the third and final book as we speak. It begins in Union City, Georgia, where I grew up. My second book was Red Summer’s sequeal: Wil’s Winter – Five years later. The characters have grown up and moved on (or are trying to).
The third book I completed was a total surprize and turned into a space opera; Mostly Human started out as an after thought. A reoccuring dream that wouldn’t go away until I put pen to paper. It grew into a series as well, a trilogy. Filled with angst, drama, suspense and romance and I was shocked to learn that my mother had picked it up, (yes, to support her daughter). She really enjoyed it. (My mother doesn’t read these kinds of books!) She is the reason for the second and third books! After completing the final book, my father picked it up and has informed me of his enjoyment in my writing as well. (He has also suggested that I do a fourth book … I’m thinking about it.)
My current project(s) include the third book for Red summer and the editing of my first epic fantasy of which I have been tinkering with for years now. At the sametime I am also working on what I believe is considereed a ‘time-slip’. You cna find my Epic fantasy on Wattpad and I am posting chapters of ‘The Amulet’ on my official Author’s Page @ AntoinetteHouston.com
