Dear Ms. Molteni,
I hope you might be interested in THE STRANGE AND DEADLY PORTRAITS OF BRYONY GRAY, a MG, LGBT retelling of the Picture of Dorian Gray. It is complete at 70k.
Bryony Gray is suffering a number of indignities. For one thing, her reflection is misbehaving. After all, what good is a mirror when you can only see the back of your head? Another is that she is trapped in her uncle's stuffy attic all day painting pictures, and everyone she paints ends up going missing.
When she discovers that one of her portraits has begun leaking magic, triggering a chain reaction that turns every painting in the near vicinity deadly, Bryony knows she must fix what she's done. In order to stop museums and galleries all across the world from becoming death traps, she sets out to break the spell, all the while keeping out of the grasping reach of her horrid uncle, who has his own plans for her murderous masterpieces. STRANGE AND DEADLY PORTRAITS will appeal to fans of Claire Legrand’s THE CAVENDISH HOME FOR BOYS AND GIRLS, and Lemony Snicket’s A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS. I have a large fanbase of over 50k readers on the writing website Wattpad, and I’m an active member of the vlogging community with the YA Word Nerds who are featured on the NANOWRIMO Youtube channel this November. I am also part of a website called The Punkettes who blog about all things Steampunk.
I have pasted a writing sample and synopsis below. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
