Last summer I published my 8th full-length novel, The End of Feeling. Shortly after its release I was contacted by an editor at Skyscape, a division of Amazon Publishing. (Who knew Amazon had a publishing house? I didn't!) They expressed interest in acquiring the rights. I was hesitant, preferring to self-publish over traditional publishing. But, after talking to some authors who've published with them, and after a phone conference with Vivian and Courtney, I was convinced they'd be a great option. I've kept it a bit on the quiet side because we decided to leave the book out there, available for purchase since I'd already released it, with a re-release date set for January 27, 2015.
Well, we're just a few days away from that, so I feel like it's a good time for the announcement, and, even better, a reveal of the redesigned cover! Add to that announcement another one: it will now also be available as an audiobook!!! Yay!!! (I promise you won't find the overuse of exclamation points in the book itself.) So, here it is, with the blurb and a purchasing link as well. If you continue to the bottom of the post, there's a link to a Goodreads giveaway being run by Skyscape where you can enter to win your own copy. They are offering 20 copies for the giveaway!
Eighteen-year-old Benjamin Nefer seems to have it all: great looks, incredible football skills, and smooth moves that have won—and broken—the hearts of countless girls at his high school. But his hellish home life has left him feeling empty inside, unable to experience real feelings. He thinks he’s fine being this way forever…until he meets a beautiful and witty seventeen-year-old girl named Charlotte “Charlie” Austin. She may be new in town, but she’s already been warned about Benjamin’s reputation, so it’s easy for her to shoot down his advances. Like him, she’s happier keeping people at a distance, especially since she, too, has secrets she’s not ready to share with anyone. But as the tentative friendship between the charismatic football captain and the new girl grows, Charlie finds herself feeling closer to Benjamin than she’s ever felt with anyone—and he wonders if he’s really capable of loving after all. Can they drop their guard, or is this so-called romance just another game?
