Cover Reveal: FOUR SUMMERS by Nyrae Dawn!


Many of you know that my writing bestie is Nyrae Dawn.  We became friends back in our Inkpop days and we've been tight ever since.  We beta read every single book for one another.  She gets to see all my hideous first drafts.  I turn to her when I've got news, when I'm excited, when I'm sad, when I need to vent.  She's just awesome.  And she's a writing machine.  I'm sorta jealous of her mad fast writing skills.  

Nyrae and I, Summer 2012

Her upcoming self-published book is a YA contemporary romance called FOUR SUMMERS.  I've been critiquing this book as she goes, and it's a sweet coming-of-age story about friendship and love. I hope you'll check it out!  :)



(Cover by B Design)

Blurb:

Charlotte Gates is tired of being Charlie Rae. She loves the lake she was raised on, their rental cabins, and spending her nights under the stars…but inside she yearns for more.
After his freshman year, Nathaniel Chase’s family spends their first summer at The Village. From the beginning Charlotte intrigues him. She’s the girl who always says what’s on her mind, wins at night games, and each time she looks through her telescope, gets lost in the sky.
Over the course of four summers together, Charlotte and Nathaniel become best friends, share firsts, mend broken hearts, protect each other’s secrets, overcome tragedies…fall in love. And say goodbye…
Charlie wants out of The Village. Nate wants her to have her stars. And they dream of being able to do it all together. But life isn’t as easy as their summers.
Each summer is told in alternating points of view between Charlie and Nate. Journey with the pair, and their friends, as they share their story about growing up, discovering who they are, making tough choices, and falling in love again and again.


FOUR SUMMERS releases April 29th, 2013!!
