I'm ready for you all to shred the query for my new MS. Have at it, thanks!
When sixteen-year-old Avery Littleton graduates from Clockwork Academy, she thinks becoming a clock-working Master is a given. Falling in love would be a nice bonus.
Instead, Avery’s first job as a clock repair technician shows her how little she knows. The only male attention she attracts is from her older brother’s obnoxious friend who will do anything to get Avery’s attention, even sabotage her career.
At work, Avery forms an unexpected attachment to her boss, Toby, who shares her passion for anything that ticks. While struggling to figure out if he returns her affections, she becomes entangled with the Time Guardians, a secret society seeking to capture a renegade Master attempting to rewrite time.
Caught in the Time Guardian’s zeal and forced to rely on her own wits, Avery’s imagination zeroes in on the man she believes is their criminal. But revealing her suspicions would alienate Toby forever, while keeping quiet endangers the time line and the lives of all she loves most.
TIME GUARDIAN, a YA romance with science fiction elements complete at 77,000 words, is a loose retelling of Jane Austen’s NORTHANGER ABBEY in a Victorian-inspired world where time is revered.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
