It’s been three weeks since my newest teen novel was released into the world. I’ve been busy giving out bookmarks and swag and spreading the word so people can find it and hopefully enjoy the story of Isla Rush, a girl who gets her heart broken and then slowly put back together again. And let me tell you, it has been slow going.
It is so very hard to get your book into the hands of readers, especially when you’re published by a small press. Big books get big attention and small books fall by the wayside. Many authors know this struggle so well: You finally get your book published, and then no one knows about it.
So I thought it’d be fun to share a three chapter excerpt with you on the blog today. Although many readers have told me the ending of chapter 5 is epic and lol-worthy and also kick ass, the first three chapters should get you hooked and wanting to read more. (In my authorly opinion, at least.)
So click here to read it since WordPress doesn’t let me embed HTML code and then please leave me a comment telling me what you thought!
PS- If anyone knows how to embed HTML code into WordPress, I’d love to hear about it!
