An excerpt, a trailer and a big welcome to @Harmony_Kent of #RaveReviewsBookClub 

Today I’m joined by the wonderful Harmony Kent as she kicks off a tour with 4Wills Publishing. We’ve got some great content today including a peak at her forthcoming book Finding Katie. Read on my friends, read on…

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I would like to thank my host for today for letting me invade their space. And a big thanks also to 4Wills Publishing for setting up this blog tour for me. For my next tour stops, please check out the 4Wills current events page.

 

 

I am so excited to be able to share my book trailer video with you today for my latest book, Finding Katie.

People who self-harm aren’t crazy … it’s just their way of coping.

What do you do when you’ve hit rock bottom? When there’s nowhere left to turn?

 

Seventeen-year-old Kate Charlesworth kind of ended up self-harming by accident. It wasn’t something she meant to do. The first time it happened, she experienced a break from her emotional pain that she’d never had before. And, well, one thing sort of led to another …

 

Excerpt from Chapter One:

THERE IS much power in a name. Just the one utterance can resurrect the dead. Would that I had joined those decaying ranks. Death is easy. It’s living that sucks.

::

The nurse is asleep in the chair. The monitor emits another brief, quiet beep. A too-warm draft from the open room door breezes over my face. 

Hospitals are always the same. I want out. It’s not just the temperature, but the smell as well. Can’t they get a nicer cleaning product? Oh, and don’t even get me started on the florescent lights. Even now, in the dead of night, the lights are on in the corridor. Dimmed, … but still. You’d think—being geared up for sick people—they’d make the place a bit comfier.

I shouldn’t even be here. And I 

definitely don’t need that silly cow in the corner. I’m being ‘specialled’ … LOL. Like, I’ve been on my own all my life and NOW they care? What gives? Stuff it. I don’t care. They’ll just patch me up and ship me home, like usual.

My arm itches. The tight bandages stop me from being able to scratch it. This is maddening. And that bloody beeping is driving me crazy. I have to get out of here. The monster that lives in me gives a growl … low, menacing. 

My heart speeds up and I break into a sweat.

An IV is plugged into my other arm. I grit my teeth, wince in anticipation, and yank it out. Warm blood pools on my arm and drips on the sheet, along with the cooler fluid leaking out of the tube. It stings a little bit.

There isn’t much bedding for me to throw back, only the now-damp sheet. I swing my legs over the side of the mattress and sit up. The wires attached to the sticky pads on my chest pull tight. I stop moving and hold 

my breath. As soon as I take the leads off, the machine will alarm. That has to be the last thing I disconnect. 

          

  

 

 

 

Book Blurb:

 Edit 

 I killed someone, you see. I killed the girl, who used to be me.

 

I’m Kate … Kate Charlesworth. I’m seventeen, and self-harming. This time I cut too deep, and I’m in hospital. I hadn’t meant for it to be so bad—it just sort of happened. I needed a lot of distraction that day.

 

You’ve had bad days, right? Days it hurts too much to think. Days you just wanna stay in bed. Days when the world needs to go away for a while. Right?

 

What do you do when you’ve hit rock bottom? When there’s nowhere left to turn? 

 

This one little mistake lands me back on a psych unit—the last place I wanna be. Only this time, the nurse I end up with isn’t content to stick on a band-aid and send me home. She wants me to face my demons. But to do that, I’ll have to face who I am … who I used to be … I’ll have to find Katie.

3. Has absolutely no sense of humour
4. Biographer is a compulsive liar
5. Reads … a lot
6. Writes … even more
7. Completely sane(in)
8. Neighbours are nuts
9. If you’re feeling extra brave she’s around
