Join me on Tuesday, Feb. 16 with my fellow writers J. Marshall Freeman and ’Nathan Burgoine for the virtual launch of our YA book Three Left Turns to Nowhere. Presented by Left Bank Books and hosted by Shane Mullen, the event will stream on Facebook Live and YouTube at 7 p.m. Central Time.
Holy cow, that’s really soon, isn’t it? Find out more details at left-bank.com and mark your calendar!
In case you’ve forgotten (OMG pay attention), here’s what the book’s about:
Three strangers heading to a convention in Toronto are stranded in rural Ontario, where a small town with a subtle kind of magic leads each to discover what he’s been searching for.
Ed Sinclair and his friends get stuck in Hopewell after their car breaks down. It’s snark at first sight when he meets local mechanic Lyn, but while they’re getting under each other’s skin, the town might show them a way into one another’s hearts.
Rome Epstein is out and proud and clueless about love. He’s hosting a giant scavenger hunt at the convention, but ends up in Hopewell. When the town starts leaving him clues for its own scavenger hunt, he discovers a boy who could be the prize he’s been searching for.
Fielding Roy has a gift for seeing the past. His trip to reunite with friends hits an unexpected stop in Hopewell, but a long-lost love letter and two local boys give him a chance to do more than watch the past. This time, Fielding might be able to fix the present.
If for no other reason, tune in and see how many times I can say “um” in a single sentence. (Let me tell you, it’s a lot.)
