Young Adult Debut!

Several weeks ago I blogged about completed writing projects I was pondering going the indie/self pub route with. One of those stories was TRADING SPACES, a middle school level "feel good" story about feuding twins, Jonas and Jillian Kragen, who undergo a "Freaky Friday" switcharoo just in time for cheerleading tryouts and the football season opener.

I took the plunge and the book is now available for digital download.

Here's a wee blurb:

Jonas Kragen and his twin sister, Jillian, have been going at it since before they were born: launching fierce kick-boxing matches in their mother’s womb, turning walkers into bumper cars, grade school recesses into blood sport, and puberty into pistols at ten paces.

Jillian thinks Jonas is Exhibit ‘A’ in the case for man’s evolution from the ape and what brains he has are all in his biceps. Jonas is convinced his sister is a shallow little drama queen with a gift for getting under his skin.

Fourteen and still feuding, this dueling duo is in for a rude awakening when they undergo a shocker of a switcharoo and discover they’ve inexplicably changed places! Jonas is suddenly sporting toe rings, and wearing gunky mascara and candy apple red nail polish. Jillian’s got Jonas’s hairy legs, humongous feet, and tidy whities.

And Jonas wants them back!

With cheerleading tryouts and the big football scrimmage coming up, these traumatized twins must find a way to peacefully coexist long enough to figure out how to reverse the surreal swap before someone discovers they’ve traded spaces.

It’s a battle of the sexes, sibling-style, where Freaky Friday is child’s play and “walk a mile in my shoes” takes on a whole new meaning.

How do you say gender gap?


And don't forget to grab a FREE digital copy of CALAMITY JAYNE at one of these vendors!




Hope your summer is full of great "beach reads"!

My kiddo would love this but she doesn't have an eReader. She does have a tablet with Kobo on it. I need to see if I can get this book on there somehow.

Congrats on taking the plunge!

I'll be doing a POD version of this book when I get back from RWA National, Terri, but wanted to get the ebook up and out there.

FYI.

Oh good. She prefers paper books.

Most young adults still seem to prefer the "old-fashioned" version for whatever reason, Terri. It's weird when you think how most of the younger generation can out-tech the rest of us but they still seem to go for the print version.
