TRADE THE DAY Featured Author: Jennifer Walkup
By - July 29, 2013
On August 23, starting at midnight, I will be hosting a special event called Trade the Day: Spotlight on Team Alaina. During this twenty-four hour blog-a-thon, proceeds from sales of my new book, The Trade, made on my publisher's website at stairwaypress.com will go to benefit Team Alaina for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. For the next 19 weekdays leading up to the big event, I will be featuring two of the day's scheduled special guests, some which will be guest blogging, some who will be hosting giveaways of autographed books and other goodies, and some who will be doing both! Get to know this fantastic group of people right here, and come back on August 23 to join us for a day of 24 hours, 23 guest authors, and 1 goal...a cure.
Today, I'm proud to showcase the first of our featured authors:
Jennifer Walkup is a writer, reader, editor and creative writing teacher. SECOND VERSE, her Young Adult romantic thriller, is her first novel.
WHY SHE'S EXCITED TO BE A PART OF TRADE THE DAY- IN HER OWN WORDS:
"I *met* Christa Carol, mother of little Alaina, years ago in an online writing group. We became fast friends and critique partners and spent a lot of time reading each other’s young adult novels. I so admire Christa Carol (and her entire family’s) strength throughout Alaina’s battle with leukemia and am so happy every time I see a post on how well she is doing. Go Alaina!"
ABOUT SECOND VERSE:
Second Verse, a Young Adult romantic thriller, will be released by Luminis Books on October 1, 2013.
Bad things come in threes. In Shady Springs, that includes murder.
Lange Crawford's move to Shady Springs, Pennsylvania, lands her a group of awesome friends, a major crush on songwriter Vaughn, and life in a haunted, 200-year-old farmhouse. It also brings The Hunt: an infamous murder mystery festival where students solve a fake, gruesome murder scheme during the week of Halloween. Well, supposedly fake.
Weeks before The Hunt, Lange and her friends hold a seance in the farmhouse's eerie barn. When a voice rushes through, whispering haunting words that only she and Vaughn can hear, Lange realizes it's begging for help. The mysterious voice leads Lange and Vaughn to uncover letters and photos left behind by a murdered girl, Ginny, and they become obsessed with her story and the horrifying threats that led to her murder.
Murder Yet to Come
But someone doesn't like their snooping, and Lange and Vaughn begin receiving the same threats that Ginny once did. The mysterious words from the barn become crucial to figuring out Ginny's past and discovering how their own past is connected to hers. They must work fast to uncover the truth or risk finding out if history really does repeat itself.
