Ever since she could remember, Elle has had to hop from town to town to keep up with her dad’s demanding career as a corporate insurance agent. Each time, a recurring nightmare followed her wherever she went–until the day that the frightening figures haunting her at night became all too real. When news of a serial killer spreads throughout her new school, Elle worries that the Reaper has been leaving her his calling card in the form of cigarette butts on her doormat and an unusual ribbon in her locker. With the help of Brian, a boy she meets at a flea market, she discovers that this isn’t her first encounter with the murderer and that her father has been concealing her true identity for the past twelve years. But despite her father’s desperate attempts to protect her, Elle still comes face to face with the darkness she has been running from her whole life. Trapped in the woods and with help hundreds of miles away, will Elle be able to confront the Reaper and reclaim the life she lost?
This is the link to the Amazon pre-order page. It’s real. I’m not even making this up.
Please attempt to imagine my face right now. Things are happening. THIS is happening. DECEIVED is really coming. The firsts just keep on coming.
I got my first quote from an author who is amazing and for some reason I can’t imagine, agreed to read my book. AND THEN she liked it. What? She did! Look:
“Ms. Lindsey crafts an exquisite tale that kicked my adrenaline up with every turn of the page. Deceived is stunning and more than a little scary. From the first page, I had to know what happens next, while at the same time, I had to know what happened before. As Elle’s life unravels, the reader will feel just as raw and betrayed as she does.” ~Gwen Hayes, author of Falling Under
AND ALSO: NetGalley.
Deceived is available on NetGalley. You know how psyched I get when NetGalley emails me to say I was approved for a request. I feel so important when I get those emails, and I rip into the file immediately, instantly devouring the new book. I love getting chosen to read a book early. It’s one of my many thrilling life experiences. So, *imagine* my face when I found MY BOOK on NetGalley? I’m so happy right now. And terrified. It’s crazy. If you use NetGalley and read YA and want to find my book over there (MY BOOK IS ON NETGALLEY) this is the link: https://www.netgalley.com/catalog/show/id/32563
*Puffs into paper bag* I need to go run off some of this fear/panic/excitement now before I swoon and roll off my couch again. Does everyone else feel this conflicted with overload emotion before a release? I still have 3 months to go.
Are you all sane by the time the book is actually loose in the world? Well….wait. If it’s on NetGalley, it kind of IS in the world.
I need to walk away right now.
