Exciting New YA Book and Giveaway: Turning Point, Melissa Luznicky Garrett

Being part of the writing community has been a blessing in so many ways. I am learning so much, but the added benefit is finding out about new books and exciting authors. Even better, I get to pass this information along to my readers.

I am so excited to post this press release for Melissa Luznicky Garrett's young adult novel, Turning Point. I met Melissa through the online writing community, and she's been an amazing support. Her novel, Precipice, is next in my to-be-read pile.

Melissa has been kind enough to offer a free digital copy of Turning Point to one lucky reader. Please see details below.

Turning Point

Melissa Luznicky Garrett

She recalled her mother’s warning: Bad things always happen to nice girls like you.

Convinced a fresh start is all she needs to escape the problems at home, seventeen-year-old Jenna Lyons runs away in the middle of the night. But when her car breaks down on the outskirts of La Grange, Missouri, population less than a thousand, she gets sucked into the small town, and one family in particular. Jenna discovers there’s a liar in La Grange, and he’s deceived everyone. Now she must decide whether to run away from the truth, or blow his secret wide open.

“The tornado isn't the only thing that twists in this story--if you love dark characters with even darker secrets,

TURNING POINT is for you!” ~Anne Riley, author of The Clearing

“TURNING POINT is a YA thriller that will rock your socks, young or old. You should add it to your wish list immediately. I recommend it to anyone who loves stories that expose hidden secrets.” ~Tegan Allen, review on Goodreads

Sometimes. Several things draw me to a book- the cover, the title, a friend's suggestion or a trailer. I just love how creative authors are being today with advertising via blogs like this, online stories, exerpts and give-aways. Bravo! Plus, this book sounds really interesting - I hope I win!

Yes, book trailers make a big difference. If I don't like the tone of the trailer, I will not buy. Sometimes, I am on the fence and the book trailer helps me decide whether or not to buy.

I think they do - especially if it's a well done trailer. Melissa's book sounds very intriguing!
