Thank you so much for joining me today!
I have some incredible news. My first ever novella is finally up on Amazon for pre-order.
To celebrate, me and a few writer friends are going to be having a book launch tour. On it, you’ll find book spotlights, book reviews where you can hear all about Broken Pieces, and even an author interview where I’ll answer questions about the book. Welcome to the first stop. :D
And at the end, I’ll be hosting an amazing giveaway!
But before we get into that, I would seriously be dropping the ball if I didn’t take a second to give a huge thanks to all of the writers, bloggers, and readers who are making this book launch tour so amazing. There is a lot of great content found on all of these blogs collectively (and a lot of awesome people represented here) and to think they’d share their time with me to help launch this book is incredible!
So, thanks so much, everyone!
Now then, oh wait, I still need to tell you what this book is all about, don’t I. No point in showing the cover until you hear what’s behind it. Y’all are too discerning to judge a book just by its cover. ;)
Broken Pieces is a New Adult Christian speculative fiction novella that is heavily allegorical. It’s currently 113 pages or 21,700 words long, (The longest completed project I’ve written to date.)
Here is the official blurb:
Catherine DeLacey lives in a world where mental and emotional traumas manifest as glass-like shards that grow inside of people’s chests. Faced with lives full of suffering, many turn to specialists to have their shards surgically removed.
Catherine’s shard is too large for even the most skilled surgeons to handle safely.
Unable to live with the agony any longer, Catherine plans to take her own life until a close friend tells her the story of a woman who had a similar shard removed successfully by a mysterious source. Armed with this new hope, Catherine sets out on her journey, but as her time runs out, that hope begins to die.
Will she find a way to remove her shard? Or will she give in to despair?
