Do you know what today is? What’s that? Oh come now, surely, you know…
Open Heart is officially here!
That’s right, today’s the big release date. I hope you’re excited. If not, that’s okay—I’m definitely excited enough for everyone. Yaaaaaah!
To celebrate this momentous occasion, a few cool things are going on. First, Farsighted is free for Kindle all weekend. Yup, tell your friends—especially those who you think might enjoy it. Second, I’m giving away an autographed paperback copy of Open Heart as part of the Splash into Summer giveaway (and over 200 other bloggers are giving away awesome prizes of their own). Third, I have lots of fun fan goodies, including quizzes, desktop wallpapers, music, and info for book clubs.
Yup, it’s pretty much a party over here all weekend. So check out this summary of Open Heart and click below to read two excerpts—I’m sharing one each for Teams Alex and Dax (just click on the suitor’s photo to read his excerpt).
The problem is, she’s not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? And why can’t she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Whenever he’s around, part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter who she’d hurt or what she’d risk.
Simmi’s loyalty is on the line. Who will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with “bad idea” written all over him? Emotions run high as the tension mounts in book two of the Farsighted series.
Admit it, you’re getting excited. I hope you’ll pick up a copy of Open Heart today to celebrate this big launch. This novel means a lot to me since I had to confront many personal insecurities during the writing process. The character of Simmi has such a poor self image and ultimately resorts to bulimia. Real teens have real problems, and I think YA forgets that sometimes. Straight from my heart to yours, I hope the second book in my series will speak to you.
And don’t forget to pick up a copy of Farsighted for free on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday!
