SWELL Cover Reveal!!!

This is my second full-length contemporary YA novel, about a girl who gets with the most popular guy in school (who happens to be an alcoholic). Here’s the excerpt and cover for SWELL, due for release this September on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and Bookiejar. Be on the look-out for the SWELL Facebook page as well and become a fan of it! Cheers!


SWELL cover, designed by Simona Ramos.

When Christian Rusch plucks Beck Ionesco from the freshman ranks for himself, she’s tempted with parties, popularity, and love. But as the free-flowing booze that soaks his world seeps into her own, Beck begins using liquid courage as a way to ignore Christian’s dark moods… and cover her anxiety about his flirtatious friend Hillman.

However, when Christian breaks up with Beck, and Hillman makes a dangerous move, no amount of alcohol can stop the pain or keep her out of trouble. And just when it seems like she’s lost everything, Beck is partnered with Jesse Leary for an art project. After spending time with him, Beck realizes it’s more than a study date… and Christian’s not happy about it. Then again, Beck’s not sure she’s happy with him, either.

But only after plowing through a bottle of wine, a wild fight, and one guardrail that becomes Christian’s last call, does Beck admit to her problem and ask for help from the one whose life secretly parallels her own.
