Pandora’s Lifebox, or the Eternity Chest

Standard

Pandora’s Lifebox was written in 2008 as my NaNoWriMo entry. This novel is special for two reasons: I wrote this one by hand (it was painful and I’ll never try that again). And it also represents my first foray into making a sequel. In this case, the Autumn Chase series. I’m still working on converting this draft to a Scrivener file so that I can upload it for you to read. Like the others, I’ll also be editing this for publication. Once I edit them for publication, you can return here to download and Purchase the finished volume.
