Another New Life

Greetings, everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by here. Today I'm featuring fellow New Adult author, Sydney Aaliyah Michelle's cover reveal for her debut novel, Another New Life:

Cover Design by: (C) Arijana Karčić, Cover It! Designs

Isn't it purty? I love it. I've had the pleasure of reading this story too, and it's a raw, emotional tale of overcoming regrets and accepting new possibilities. Sydney and I did a beta exchange last year and I'm really glad we did. She was a huge help with feedback on Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc., and Another New Life was one of those painless reads that kept me turning pages.

Here's the blurb:

Miranda Preston is a walking contradiction. Beautiful on the outside, but, insecure, haunted and damaged on the inside. Despite these contradictions, she’s ready to start Another New Life.
When her talent wins her a piano scholarship to the University of Texas at Austin, Miranda arrives on campus determined to experience everything college has to offer and to keep her secrets in the past where they belong.
An easy task, until the first guy who catches her eye happens to be someone, she’s known all her life.
Eight years have passed since the last time Miranda and Troy saw each other. He reminds her of the best and worst times of her life, but she can’t think about one without dwelling on the other. As they grow closer, every day their attraction reminds them they are no longer kids.
The epic romantic love story that is Miranda and Troy seems to be destined for a happy ending, but Miranda knows it's only a matter of time before her secret is discovered. A secret that will not only destroy their relationship, it will destroy Troy, too.

Can Miranda focus on her future with Troy while preventing her past from tearing them apart all over again?

And there's a GIVEAWAY!

Big congrats to Sydney! 

Today is also the epic agent contest over at SC Author's blog. If you have a story ready to pitch, be sure to check this out and get your entry in. I've had the treat of critiquing pitches some from fabulous writers I've just become acquainted with, and I'm super excited to see what happens on this contest. 

That means the Write It Right Review was skipped over due to time constraints, but will be opening up again soon, so stay tuned. 

And thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh for featuring me on his blog Monday on G Day. So great to meet some new bloggers because of it. Welcome to all of you!

I'm still toiling away on the Butterman sequel and mother's memoir, so it's back to the writing cave for me. 

Tell me what you're up to! Excited about any books coming out? Or movies? I hope to see Noah this weekend. Been over to see Sydney yet? Entering the agent contest on SC's blog? Let's hear it ...
