In September my YA ghost mystery, Cherish, will be published (before all my grandkids get too old to be interested in Halloween stories). I’m doing a cover reveal program on my Goodreads site. I’ll encouraging perspective readers (of all ages) to list Cherish as “want to read” by giving away a two-chapter PDF.
Here’s the back-cover blurb.
“Cherish can’t be my name. It doesn’t sound right. But who am I? I should have listened better in that mini-psych class in middle school. I’ve heard of bi-polar and multiple personalities. I think. Is this the way people go crazy?”
Kayla shouldn’t have taken that strange girl’s hand, because that’s when Everything Changed.
“And, wasn’t it the twenty-first century? What’s with the date, October 1946? That can’t be right.”
But, if SHE is Cherish, how about the date on that tombstone? If she doesn’t find a way back to her own body, and her own time.., Kayla will DIE in a few days.
Not on the cover, the elevator pitch for this mystery: How can Kayla return to own century after she finds herself in 1946 with only her cell phone and a couple of Twinkies?
Ghosts and Halloween — sound like a mystery you’d like to read?
I’ve heard of mother-daughter reads. This is a grandmother-granddaughter read. I know, as a grandmother, I continue to be amazed by everything people do with their cell phones. (And, believe me, I had a lot of younger generation help while writing about text-messaging — a big part of the mystery in this book.) Teens will be just as amazed by last century’s antique social media — the hard-wired telephone that isn’t going anywhere, or doing much of anything.
