Synopsis

You know him, but you can't remember his name. He is the one that is always there, in the background, all but invisible to those roaming the hallways. What if he had a secret? What if it was a secret that even he didn't know?

Test Davis has always been a blur to those around him. He's a shadow like a million other kids--not smart enough for the academic team, not beast enough for the football team, not extroverted enough for the drama crowd. In all things Test is just...not, which is why no one ever notices him.

But what happens when someone does notice him--Nicole Paxton, a cheerleader, no less? What happens on the night that Test finds out there's nothing average about him and that a powerful gift has been hidden within, sectretly waiting to be set free and alter his life forever? The question is, will that power save him and those he loves or tear them apart?

Happy weekend!

Well, it has been a very nice week. Failing Test has been featured on several blogs and received a couple of four star reviews. First, Imogen Rose read and reviewed FT and then posted an interview with me on Dawn Judd's Breakout Book Review. Here is the link:

Also, I was invited to be a guest "reader" on an Amazon Kindle Forum called "The Retreat", yesterday and posted the first couple pages of Chapter 12 from FT, in which my favorite character, Clifford Johnston, is introduced. You can check it out here:

I will also be attending a book signing for an area high school in Wichita, Ks in the next couple of months. The date hasn't been made firm yet, but I will post more info as it is made available to me. Here is the link:

Enough talking about myself, a fellow indie author looks to be poised to make it into the big show! Amanda Hocking, author of the "My Blood Approves" series as well as "Switched", has been contacted by a very prominent agent and (in my opinion) is only a short drive away from stardom! Congratulations Amanda. We are all very proud of you!!!! You can check out her authors page on Amazon here:

This is a dynamic and fantastic time to be an Indie Author. "Duality" is coming along quickly and I'm hoping to have it published by the end of October 2010 and then in December, I'm hoping to have the sequel to FT (A Shadow's Light) published as well.

I am very grateful to all who have shown FT and myself such love and support. Best wishes to you all and take care!
