2012 has been a very busy year for me writing wise and otherwise. Some times have been wonderful and others trying. But I’m hoping to end the year with a bang.
Before I get to that news, it appears that WFM has 46 likes on its Amazon book page. Only 4 more needed for another POV, YAY!
I know a lot of you are waiting on Mercy, pun not intended, and I am going to get back to that. Meanwhile, I’ve been busy writing a lot (Mercy included). Some of my writing is new, other has been editing things I’ve already written. There is a saying that the heart wants what the heart wants. It’s also true with writing. Some times there are words that want to be written that aren’t the ones deadlines dictate. But I promise to give Mercy my full attention very soon.
Today, I’m announcing a story that I’ve wanted to write ever since I finished Beg for Mercy. And finally I have. This is a stand alone young adult contemporary romance novel titled Through the Lens. No paranormal creatures running around in this book, lol. 😉
If you are a member of Goodreads, Through the Lens has been posted in the place of Seeing. Seeing is the first in a young adult paranormal romance trilogy that was planned for a 2012 release. However, with Remember coming out and my need to focus on Mercy again, that book release has been pushed back to later in 2013. The cover has been revamped, so it’s been pulled from GR library for now. Look for information on that series to come after the new year.
So here is the cover reveal for Through the Lens.
The blurb for this book is
Being a twin isn’t all that bad, nor is it all that good. Being the fat twin makes things a little worse. Seventeen year old, Jessa Shelby has been all but ignored. Trimmed down, but not skinny like her sister, she has decided to make her mark in her final year in high school.
Things begin anew the summer before her senior year when she makes friends with Ethan Hart, a boy with a twisted past, and Allie, his near celebrity status girlfriend, while taking pictures with her new prized possession. Hanging out with them opened her eyes to a lot of new possibilities including Josh Macon, whom she’s secretly crushed on all through high school. No longer the ‘fat girl’, Josh now seems interested in her too.
Long before the day comes to graduate, Jessa finds herself gasping for air. With her vision clouded from tears born of pain as the straps from her precious camera tighten around her throat, clarity sets in. They say that just before you die your life flashes before your eyes. And on the threshold of death claiming her, she finds that partially true. Her flash begins as if to explain just how she ended up on Death’s door. With mere moments left, she has to wonder if trust had come at a very high price.
