CRASH Update and Blurb

My very first YA Contemporary, CRASH has officially been sent off to the editor and is scheduled to be released in the next month. I really, really enjoyed writing this one. I never imagined I could love writing YA Contemporary as much as YA Paranormal. But I did. This is one of those books that gave me a lot of sleepless nights, a lot of rewrites to get the characters and storyline just right, and even a few tears. In the end, I'm really proud of this book and eager to release it. The cover should be ready in about a week and I'll post that as well. This one will also be available in paperback and I'll be doing several signed copy giveaways around release time. CRASH is edgier than my previous books and intended for mature readers.

Southpointe High is the last place Lucy wanted to wind up her senior year of school. Right up until she stumbles into Jude Ryder, a guy whose name has become its own verb, and synonymous with trouble. He's got a rap sheet that runs longer than a senior thesis, has had his name sighed, shouted, and cursed by more women than Lucy dares to ask, and lives at the local boys home where disturbed seems to be the status quo for the residents. 

Lucy had a stable at best, quirky at worst, upbringing. She lives for wearing the satin down on her ballet shoes, has her sights set on Juilliard, and has been careful to keep trouble out of her life. Up until now. 

Jude's everything she knows she needs to stay away from if she wants to separate her past from her future. Staying away, she's about to find, is the only thing she's incapable of. 

For Lucy Larson and Jude Ryder, love's about to become the thing that tears them apart.
