Never Gone Giveaway!
Today I'm hosting a stop on Laurel Garver's Blog Ramble celebrating the release of her debut novel, Never Gone. Read on to learn about the book and sign up for a chance to win an ebook version! Contest runs until midnight Saturday, October 6. Days after her father’s death, fifteen-year-old Dani Deane begins seeing him all around New York — wading through discarded sketches in her room, roaming the halls at church, socializing at his post-funeral reception. Is grief making her crazy? Or could her dad really be lingering between this world and the next, trying to contact her? Dani desperately longs for his help. Without him keeping the peace, Dani’s relationship with her mother is deteriorating fast. Soon Mum ships her off to rural England with Dad’s relatives for a visit that Dani fears will become a permanent stay. But she won’t let her arty, urban life slip away without a fight, especially when daily phone calls with her lab partner Theo become her lifeline. To find her way home, Dani must somehow reconnect with Mum. But as she seeks advice from relatives and insights from old letters, she uncovers family secrets that shake her to the core. Convinced that Dad’s ghost alone can help her, she sets out on a dangerous journey to contact him one last time.

Sounds great, doesn't it? This past weekend I attended a local SCBWI meeting. Writers around the state are gathering monthly to network and learn, and luckily enough for me, the meeting happen to be in my hometown at the library right up the street. We had a guest speaker who's a writing coach, and with my next post, I'll share some tips she shared. Check back soon! Don't forget to enter the raffle for the Never Gone Giveaway!
