Work in Progress: YA (historical fantasy)

Title and description: Flight. Marjaana has a gift. So do Rávle & Oaván. The difference? Marjaana has been condemned by her people while the boys are honored by theirs. What happens when a Christian girl finds herself in the midst of Pagans?

Set in 12th century Scandinavia, Flight is an alternating point-of-view, character-driven coming of age story placed in a timeframe before this region was entirely Christianized.  As Marjaana learns more about her own special ability and the people who have taken her in, she will have to come to terms with the possibility that not everything she’s been taught about the Pagan community located near her village may be as accurate as she was initially led to believe.

When do you plan on finishing this work? I started Flight about 12 months ago but didn’t truly get the bulk of it written until last November during NaNoWriMo.  I expect to have it completed by December of this year, and am considering self-publishing on Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes ‘n’ Noble’s Nook.
