From Skateboarding to Dystopia for Only $0.99!

“Mother, I know you can’t hear me, but I must talk to you.

“I need to talk to someone. Anyone. About things I would never say if you were alive. About things I didn’t want you to know because they would hurt you. This way I will say them, and you won’t hear them. This way it will be much easier for me to pour my heart out to you . . .”

My cross-genre YA novel Cruel Summer is for the first time in a Kindle discount promo week!

Sunday, May 9, 2021, 8:00 AM PDT through Sunday, May 16, 2021, 12:00 AM PDT

This gripping, unexpected, strong, and emotional story about an abused teenage boy who only wants to skate and the loyalty of friendship that stands as the shield between those who have other plans for him and his freedom will be only $0.99 for a whole week on Amazon or free with Kindle Unlimited.

Do you like books that cross genres and mix them in a surprising read you cannot put down? Cruel Summer has all that and more for you: family and social issues, extreme sports, conspiracy, murder, mystery, teen romance as a subplot, and sci-fi and dystopia as a touch of alternative history with a powerful message of friendship.

Sounds impossible? But it’s not!

“Crossing genres is always difficult, and thankfully, this one works well. It offers many angles for every type of reader. Even for those who aren’t fans of dystopia / sci-fi or who’ve never been on a skateboard in their lives . . . you’ll be pulled in for all the other reasons.”

—James J. Cudney, author of Watching Glass Shatter, Hiding Cracked Glass, Father Figure, Braxton Campus Mysteries series and Weathering Old Souls
