I’m so sorry to hear that YALC won’t be going ahead this year. It’s undoubtedly the right decision, but I’ll miss meeting readers and talking books and politics all day! Put July 23-25 2021 in your diaries instead – I’ll see you there! ❤️
You wait months for a guest blog, and then two come along at once! Huge thanks to Jess Carpenter and Beth Tabler for hosting us this week.
For an interview about characters, inspiration, food, and music in the Battle Ground Series, grab a cuppa, put your feet up, and head to Jess’s blog. For an Indie Spotlight post on Rachel and the Battle Ground Series, visit Beth’s blog, Before We Go.
We are very happy to announce that you can now order Battle Ground and False Flag, Books One and Two of the Battle Ground Series, in print from Waterstones, Barnes and Noble, and all good bookshops!
This has taken a good deal of work (buying ISBNs, reformatting the books, redesigning the covers, registering with the distributors, and more), but we’ve made it!
By ordering from bookshops, you’ll be supporting bricks-and-mortar stores (and you’ll probably receive your books more quickly than from Amazon during lockdown). Thank you for supporting Indie authors and high street shops!
Rachel will be one of the authors featured on tonight’s #BookPartyChat panel! Head over to Twitter for a conversation on Perceptions of Femininity. Bex and Ketty will definitely be making an appearance …
Huge thanks to the Wishing Shelf team, and to the YA readers who put us through to the finals – we’re so happy you enjoyed the story! Congratulations to all the winners – you can find the full list here.
If you haven’t read Battle Ground, download it now for 99p ($1.49) and lose yourself in an award-winning book today!
A woman with short pink hair opens the kitchen door, noise spilling through from the room across the hall.
“Hey, Trish.” I give her a smile.
She walks into the kitchen and pours herself a glass of water, leaning against the work surface to drink it.
“Hard at work?”
I shrug. “Exams.” Trish rolls her eyes.
“I wish they’d leave you alone. Let you get on with learning instead of this constant testing.” I can’t help smiling. I’ve never found a subject that Trish couldn’t turn into an argument.
“What’s today’s torture?”
She shakes her head. “Don’t get me started, Toph. It’s all lies – don’t forget that!” She puts the empty glass down, her black sleeve riding up to show the tattoo on her wrist – twelve stars in a neat circle, with a broken heart in the centre.
