“Seasons in the Sun” – it’s not quite a title you’d expect for a vampire-related novel but then again the girls at Deadly Ever After always manage to surprise! So what is “Seasons in the Sun”? It’s the prequal to Young Adult novel “Because the Night” by the amazing Kristen Strassel, now if you haven’t read “Because the Night” yet you should – but lets get back to the former, shall we?
“Seasons in the Sun” has just begun it’s cover release and I’m one of the blessed bloggers to be allowed to join in on it! So without further ado – here it is:
For good measure – let us add the blurb:
Seasons in the Sun:
Summer has finally arrived, along with a boy who will forever change the life of fourteen-year-old Callie. After growing up hearing stories about Tristan Trevosier and his famous family, Callie finally meets him when he spends the summer on Martha’s Vineyard. Seventeen-year-old Tristan is a hurricane of destruction and rebellion, and he quickly blows a hole right into Callie’s sheltered life. Callie sees a side of Tristan that he doesn’t show anyone else. She’s determined to make everyone see what she sees in him.
Callie defies her parents by leaving the island with Tristan. But when his ugly habits rear their head, Callie realizes maybe she’s the one who’s wrong about him. He’s beyond her help. But it’s too late for her to walk away. This summer, she learns that love can be stronger than reason.
Huh? Huh? Sounds pretty good, right? I bet you want to read it already – but maybe you should start with the original where it all began: “Because the Night” (click!)
Oh and here’s the: Goodreads (click some more!)
So there you go, if you’re not excited yet – I blame you. I, of course, am delighted about Kristen’s progress and efforts – she and Julie will be reaching for the stars pretty damn soon. And once you’ve read their work, I’m sure you’ll agree.
P.S.: Kristen, could you please get me the number of the girl on the cover? Pretty please? PLEASE?!
Just a small and quick update on things. First of all the coop with Lindsay Pate is going great, we’re looking forward to posting the first chapter(s) online soon so stay tuned. It’s going to be great!
I also won a query-review yesterday by author Katie Teller, which should be very useful once I start hitting the queries hard over the coming period of time!
I was also added on author Gabi Daniel’s shortlist (Click!) of short stories she couldn’t get out of her head – even better was the fact that her list is so great that – another blog – picked up on it and also posted her list. I’m featuring on “best authors” shortlists on two websites! Damn, I must be getting good at this!
So that’s my updates for today – I plan writing a few short stories for you all as soon as I have some more time again, which hopefully will be soon and looking forward to initiating my next phase of taking of the world.
Over at Writing Upside Down, a website owned and run by fellow author Danielle Tauscher, there’s a nifty little writing challenge – based on one picture she asked a range of authors – including Bobby – to write a short story that ranged anywhere from one-hundred to one-thousand words.
Bobby chose to write a small piece of poetry instead of his usual (scary) stories – curious yet? Go over to Writing Upside Down and check it out! We sure hope you’ll leave a comment here and there!
I Am The Tree (Click!) by Bobby Salomons.
My awesome friend Dylan J. Morgan just published his response to me nominating him for the Liebster Award! For some reason he seems to feel he’s not worthy but he is VERY worthy. Not in the least because he’s my Lycanthrope (Werewolf)-expert and I have managed to scare off those beasts twice thanks to his good advice!
Go read his awesome answers and his nominees! Bless you Mr. Morgan, and well deserved!
