One of my most eagerly anticipated books of 2012 is Struck by author Jennifer Bosworth. The YA novel tells the story of Mia Price, a “lightning addict” who’s been struck by the weather-related electric discharges so many times, she’s covered in veiny red “lightning scars.” However, when a massive earthquake decimates her hometown of Los Angeles, Mia finds herself in a post-apocalyptic wasteland and torn between two factions, both of which want her to harness her powers for their own ends.
But doing so could mean bringing about the destruction of the entire planet.
Over the weekend, popular music industry website AllHipHop featured my novel GUESTLIST in a post entitled A Breakdown of the Latest Urban Reads.
The article, written by Senior Staff Writer Biba Adams, says of GUESTLIST:
The standout debut is at the top of this list, and soon to be at the top of many others. The book is a funny and intriguing behind-the-scenes glimpse into inner workings of New York City nightlife among the Black, upwardly mobile crowd with lots of new money to burn. “Guestlist” is a page-turner from beginning to end, and one of the best independent books I’ve read in a long time.

And yes, Dear Readers, it’s only $2.99.
