First Lines from my Novel Half Dead And Fully Broken (And STREET TEAM!)

I shared the opening lines of my novel, The Reasons, on my Facebook page this morning. I thought I would do the same thing here with HALF DEAD & FULLY BROKEN, my 2015 young adult release.

With BURN BABY BURN BABY all ready for its December 11th release date (and available now at Amazon for pre-order!), I thought I would give a mention to Half Dead. I’m pretty excited about this one. Not only is it my first novel with supernatural elements, but it’s also a first in a series. I’m tentatively calling it THE CARTER COLBY SERIES. Book II is almost finished. It’s tentatively titled ALIVE & KICKING. I thought that was a nice tie-in with Book I’s title. (-:

Half Dead is with the publisher (CURIOSITY QUILLS, who are also publishing BURN BABY BURN BABY), and it has already been through all editing stages. It’s basically ready to hit the bookstore shelves! The only thing it needs is a cover. (-:

Curiosity Quills hit it out of the park with the cover for Burn Baby:

Burn Baby Burn 1000So, I’m more than eagerly anticipating the cover for Half Dead. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

If you feel so inclined, please feel free to visit my FACEBOOK AUTHOR PAGE and give it a like! You can also read the opening lines of my novel, THE REASONS, in today’s post there. (-:


Without further ado, here are the opening lines of HALF DEAD & FULLY BROKEN:

People cry whenever I’m around.

My life wasn’t always this way. They used to be indifferent. Before the accident, I sometimes wondered if I even existed at all. Not anymore. Now, all I have to do is walk into a room and someone is bound to burst into tears. Guaranteed.

I don’t really blame them. I haven’t looked in the mirror since the 6th of May, myself. I can’t bear to.

If you ever want to know what it feels like to make everybody around you miserable for life, just have your identical twin die. Trust me. That’s all you need to do.

It’s been only a short time since Marcus died, and if I’m being fair, the wounds are still pretty raw. Mom and Dad crumble whenever they accidentally bump into me in the house. They’ve been trying to keep their distance. Perhaps the shock of seeing their dead son walking the halls, eating his breakfast at the kitchen counter, spacing out in front of his Wii is too much for them. Only it’s not their dead son they’re avoiding. It’s me. Marcus dies and all of a sudden I become the walking dead. Now I know there’s such a thing as zombies. That’s me. Carter Colby, Zombie extraordinaire.


Half Dead & Fully Broken will hit bookstore shelves in January of 2015. Not long now!

Before I leave you, I’ve been researching putting together a STREET TEAM for Burn Baby Burn Baby. If you’re interested in joining the team, please let me know. You can contact me by leaving a comment on this post, or by sending me a quick email at kevintcraig @ hotmail dot com

The Steet Team members will be among the first to read the novel. You’ll be asked to post reviews on or close to the release date…and generally talk the book up on social media. If you’d like to help spread the booklove, please let me know. (-: I’d love to have you on the TEAM!
