I've been really excited to show you guys something, but it just hadn't been quite time for the big unveiling.
This is my May release, The Revised Life of Ellie Sweet. She's a teen writer just like you guys, and look at that mischief in her eyes - you just know she's up to no good, don't you? Here's a little bit about the story:
Don't just get even - write a novel
When ousted by her lifelong friends, teen writer Ellie Sweet takes to story writing as self-therapy. She casts herself as Lady Gabrielle, a favorite in the medieval Italian court, her ex-friends as her catty rivals, and makes a pesky rake of the boy who thinks he’s too good for her in real life. But when Ellie achieves the impossible and her “coping mechanism” becomes a published novel, she faces the consequences of using her pen as her sword.
This book was super fun to write, and it's an extra fun release because I'm helping launch a new line of YA books with several other amazing writers: Laura Smith, Laura Kurk (both of whom you might recognize from being on Go Teen Writers), Jennifer Murgia, and Rajdeep Paulus.
Laura Smith is putting together a "Street Team" for us where you get free books in exchange for helping us promote the new line. And who doesn't like free books? If you want to check out details and get signed up, head on over to Laura Smith's blog.
Happy Saturday, everyone!
