Happy Friday the 13th! This is going to be a lucky day for someone, and I feel pretty lucky to have he talented and lovely Ottilie Weber on Dandilyon Fluff giving away an ebook of Beneath the Scars and a touching guest post. To win enter the rafflecopter below:
‘Beneath the Scars’ is my first New Adult novel. I wrote it in about a month when I had winter break after student teaching. It was the first real time where I was able to sit that long and work on one story. I had wanted the story to be one thing, but then it took on a life of its own with characters that I did not plan for. However some of the characters I thought would only be background I loved. This is a true story that as a writer I had fun writing and hope that others will love just as much. A story where as someone who needs to plan for everything got to enjoy the simple things of not knowing what the future held, and just rolled with it.
Corporal Riley Nolan is back home and out of the hospital after sustaining severe injuries in a skirmish overseas. His physical injuries may be healed, though he is left with horrible scars all over his body. His mind is still healing, and he has almost no contact with the world outside his small dark apartment.
After the death of her parents and being forced to sell their house and move into an apartment in a new town, Eponine is left picking up the pieces while trying to maintain a normal life for her little sister, Genevieve.
Can these new neighbors help each other heal, finding the light and laughter in the world again? Most importantly, can Eponine help Riley see he’s not the monster he believes himself to be beneath the scars?
