Welcome, readers! Here is a list of the first-draft chapters for the books that eventually became the Thirst Duology. Read them, if you like, but do remember they are rough and required a great deal of rewriting and revising before they were published. It was through this process of blogging this book here for my readers and in conjunction with the #WeWriteBooks series on the Go Teen Writers blog that I discovered Thirst needed to be two books instead of one. You can learn more about the finished books by clicking here.
