I recently separated from the publisher that released both BURN BABY BURN BABY and HALF DEAD & FULLY BROKEN. I won’t discuss this, but I am announcing that I will eventually be RE-releasing both books. They are no longer with Curiosity Quills Press.
First up for the return to the land of the living will be BURN BABY BURN BABY, complete with a new cover. Please note that this is a RE-RELEASE and if you have already read Burn Baby, there are no major changes in the story. I’ve made a few minor edits, but it remains mostly intact from the original. If you haven’t read it, there will be links at the bottom of this post for PRE-ORDERing a copy!
Burn Baby Burn Baby made it onto the 2016 IN THE MARGINS BOOK AWARD LIST at LIBRARY SERVICES FOR YOUTH IN CUSTODY.
Burn Baby Burn Baby has 108 ratings on Goodreads with an overall rating of over 4-stars!
Synopsis for Burn Baby Burn Baby:
Seventeen-year-old Francis Fripp’s confidence is practically non-existent since his abusive father drenched him in accelerant and threw a match at him eight years ago. Now badly scarred, Francis relies on his best friend Trig to protect him from the constant bullying doled out at the hands of his nemesis, Brandon Hayley-the unrelenting boy who gave him the dreaded nickname of Burn Baby. The new girl at school, Rachel Higgins, is the first to see past Francis’s pariah-inducing scars. If Brandon’s bullying doesn’t destroy him, Francis might experience life as a normal teenager for the first time in his life. He just has to avoid Brandon and convince himself he’s worthy of Rachel’s attentions. Sounds easy enough, but Francis himself has a hard time seeing past his scars. And Brandon is getting violently frustrated, as his attempts to bully Francis are constantly thwarted. Francis is in turmoil as he simultaneously rushes toward his first kiss and a possible violent end.
Burn Baby will drop onto Kindle on January 31st, 2019. You can PRE-ORDER now.
In the meantime, you can always pick up a copy of PRIDE MUST BE A PLACE while you’re waiting for Burn Baby to drop! (-;
